Summary: Why Jesus? Why Communion (the Lord’s Supper)? Communion reminds humans like us that love needs to be embodied in order to be fully grasped. God did not provide us with a mere philosophy of life or only abstract truths, he sent Jesus His Son – incarnate Truth. Following the crucifixion the crushed disciples became convinced that Jesus was alive not simply because there was an empty tomb but that Jesus was risen, embodied, touchable and appeared to these disciples and dined with them again. The Lord’s Supper is an activity that trains our soul to be open to and receive the ongoing grace and presence of the Lord Jesus.
Scripture: Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Cor 11:23-27
