Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?

Scriptures about holy communion.


Why is it Called the Lord's Supper?

The Lord's Supper is also widely known and accepted by several definitions:

  • The Lord's Table
  • Breaking Of Bread
  • Holy Communion
  • Cup Of Blessing
  • Eucharist
  • Giving Of Thanks
  • Mass

Jesus Christ explained how communion worked in Matthew 26:26-29, Mark 14:22-25, Luke 22:19-20, and 1 Corinthians 11:24-26. 


What Is The Purpose Of Holy Communion?

There are several reasons for the purpose of Holy communion. It was a time where one could reflect on the death of Jesus. It was also a signal to others that a person who broke bread was a disciple. It was a time of fellowship amongst Believers and it was also the signification of the New Covenant.

There are 2 elements used to represent Jesus' body and blood - bread and juice (or wine). 

The primary passage of scripture used to explain Communion / The Lord's Supper is found in 1 Corinthians 11:23-34.

Here are some 7 key points to consider when partaking in the breaking of bread:

1) Examination

Giving of thanks is a time for personal examination. We are to look at our heart and our attitude. It's important to come before the Lord with the right motive.

2) Remembrance

We are called to remember what Jesus did for us. It is a moment of pausing and focusing on His sacrifice.

3) Take Action

Holy Communion is also a time to take action. There is a literal breaking of bread and drinking. Taking action stimulates our hearts.

4) Confession

Participating in the cup of blessing is a time to consciously confess before the Lord anything we feel needs to be said before Him. His love, forgiveness and mercy will be bestowed upon us.

5) Proclamation

The breaking of bread is a time where we proclaim Jesus' death until He comes again. In doing so, we stir up our expectation for a blessed future in Christ.

6) Commandment

Remembering Jesus is a commandment. Taking part at the Lord's Table is something we are to do often.

7) Value It

This remembrance is to be done respectfully. The Word of God says to not do it in an unworthy manner. To disvalue it is a sin. It is important that there is a reverential fear within our hearts and minds. It is not just another meal.


What is the Biblical definition of communion?

The basic definition of communion according to Christians is an intimate time of fellowship with the Lord. It is a time of memorial where the sacrifice that Jesus paid on the Cross and His Resurrection is acknowledged and accepted. It is a process of spiritually uniting with Christ.

This uniquely done through the breaking of bread and the drinking of juice (some use wine). The bread represents His broken body and the juice represents His shed blood. 

This simply process may seem insignificant to some, yet it is quite powerful. Through communion, God has brought many blessings to those who believe and participate in it.

Ultimately, the chief purpose of communion is to receive what Christ did and to hope in salvation through His Name.


Who should take communion?

Anyone can take communion, even children. Ideally, it is best that one takes it when they are of the age where they can understand why it is important and what it incorporates. 


When should I not take communion?

There is no wrong time to take communion. However, it is best that you ask the Lord for forgiveness before taking it. This will allow one you to cleanse from all unrighteousness and be forgiven of any sin according to 1 John 1:9.
