The Lord’s Supper



aka Eschatologuy

Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the night He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body, which is given for you. This do in remembrance of me.”

In the same way also, He took the cup after supper, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying: “Drink of it, all of you; this is My blood of the new testament, which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

  1. This is why Lutheranism will never be popular. Jesus also said of the cup “This cup is the New Testament….” The is is representational not papist magic. Lutheranism will die out like Eastern Heterodxy and Roman Paganism because God opposes this idolateous nonsense. And its already happening for Lutherans; you guys barely even exist in the US. Look at a map of denominations; you control as little territory as the EO. Catholics will take longer to die out than you.


    1. The fact that you believe popularity is the true measure of truth or fidelity speaks volumes, but not about Lutheranism or Scripture.

      Matthew 7:13–14 (ESV):
      »“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”«


  2. Corey, you say early on (about 8 min in) that Luther did affirm that John 6 was a catechesis about the Lord’s Supper and also about faith, but that he emphasized faith, partly because he was tired of arguing with the Reformed people. I would sure like to be able to cite this in something Luther wrote, as our (LCMS) pastor insists the John 6 “Bread of Life Discourse” is only about faith. I’m not finding anything so far just looking online.


    1. I do not recall specifically where I read this in Luther (it has been some years at this point). If I happen upon it again, I’ll be sure to note it.
