Peoples Bible Teachings
Publisher: Northwestern Publishing House
Part of The People’s Bible Teachings series, which looks at the main doctrinal teachings of the Bible, Lord’s Supper looks at what the Bible says about the Sacrament of Holy Communion. This easy-to-understand volume, written for the average reader, includes background on the historical Passover context, and discusses the following: What the Lord’s Supper is, the blessings it offers, and proper spiritual preparation for receiving Holy Communion. Author Arnold J. Koelpin emphasizes that the Lord’s Supper is a life-giving meal that Jesus prepared before he died for his followers, then and now. Today, Christians celebrate this meal in which Jesus gives his people his life-giving sacrifice in person (real presence), and, thus, they receive God’s forgiveness and blessings. The author also shows how Christians can respond to the gift of the Lord’s Supper by serving and loving God and others just as Jesus came to serve and not to be served. Includes Scripture and subject indices, Appendix 1-Luther’s Small Catechism and Appendix 2- The Augsburg Confession of 1530.
