SPRING BIBLE STUDY

A four session evening study on Jesus' Words of Institution.  We'll look to the actual event of the Last Supper, moments in history where the Lord's Supper has become controversial, and the importance of the Lord's Supper today.

Monday, 4/25   7:00 p.m.       In the Night He was Betrayed

Jesus' Words of Institution begin by addressing the later events of the evening: betrayal.  Who betrays Jesus?  Judas (Matthew 26:48-49) and Peter (John 18:17, 25, 27) are two familiar culprits.  In the end, though, all of the disciples are guilty of Christ's betrayal (Matthew 25:56).  The Lord's Supper was and still is a meal for Christ's betrayers.

Monday, 5/2     7:00 p.m.       Is Means Is

The Marburg Colloquy of 1529 pitted Martin Luther against Huldrich Zwingli concerning 15 points of Lord's Supper teachings.  They agreed on 14 points.  The point they could not see eye-to-eye on: the definition of the word "is".  Luther maintained that when Christ said "Is" he meant "is".

Monday, 5/9      7:00 p.m.       A New Testament

Jesus speaks of a new "testament' or a new "covenant" in His blood - a unilateral covenant where He gives everything, and we benefit.

DATE CHANGE BELOW

Monday, 5/23 (not 16th)    7:00 p.m.       For the Forgiveness of Sins

We end our discussions of Jesus' Words of Institution with the reason for receiving the Lord's Supper - for the forgiveness of sins.  We'll have to distinguish non-main reasons, too.  For example: coming together, unity, thanksgiving, and others.
