  • What Is Taught in the Lord's Supper
  • Matthew 26:26-29
  • The Lord's Supper is presented to us in the language of a "remembrance." It is not in itself a saving act, but it recalls to our minds the saving work of Christ. As such, it is naturally symbolic in nature. Specifically, it reminds us of the transaction of the atonement, which is central to the fulfilment of God's covenant of salvation. Christians are to partake of the supper in order to regularly recall the truth and meaning of Christ's death.
