The issue is not
The Issue is Not… of the Week

  • Whether or not Christians must eat the Lord’s Supper on the first day of the week in the worship assembly – we must, 1 Cor. 11:18, 20

    • Matt. 18:18-20 does not approve individual worship services apart from the assembly of the local church

    • Authority of the apostles to bind and loose what heaven has bound and loosed


The issue is not1
The Issue is Not… of the Week

  • Whether or not the church “serves” the Lord’s Supper; the church does not “serve” the Supper; it eats it

  • The local church does not perform a ceremony called the Lord’s Supper

  • The local church provides the occasion for the disciples to eat and drink in memory of the Lord’s death


The issue is not2
The Issue is Not… of the Week

  • Christians “drink the cup of the Lord” and “partake of the Lord’s table” when we eat the Lord’s Supper, thus having communion with the blood and body of Christ, 1 Cor. 10:21 (16-17); 11:20

  • “Serving” the supper is incidental to eating it


The issue is
The Issue is… of the Week

  • Does the local church have scriptural authority to provide an opportunity for saints to eat the Lord’s Supper at a second assembly on the first day of the week when some or most of the saints have eaten the Lord’s Supper during an earlier Lord’s day assembly? (Col. 3:17; 1 Cor. 4:17)


The issue is1
The Issue is… of the Week

  • Put another way…

  • Does the local church have Bible authority to prevent a Christian from eating the Lord’s Supper during a Lord’s Day assembly? 1 Cor. 11:28, 33

“When you come together to eat” of the Week 1 Cor. 11:33

  • Correct Realm: Kingdom, Lk. 22:18

  • Correct Arrangement: Assembly of the church, 1 Cor. 11:18, 20, 33-34

  • Correct Time: First day of the week, Acts 20:7

LORD'S SUPPER


When you come together to eat 1 cor 11 331
“When you come together to eat” of the Week 1 Cor. 11:33

  • Correct Participants: Christians who have not eaten the supper

    • A stated purpose of assembling, Acts 20:7 (1 Cor. 14:26, 15-16; 16:2)

    • Necessarily implies those assembling who have not eaten the Lord’s Supper bear the responsibility to do so

LORD'S SUPPER


When you come together to eat 1 cor 11 332
“When you come together to eat” of the Week 1 Cor. 11:33

  • Correct Participants: Christians who have not eaten the supper

    • Although eaten in the assembly, the Lord’s Supper is an individual act of worship that each Christian is commanded to obey, 1 Cor. 11:27-29

LORD'S SUPPER


When you come together to eat 1 cor 11 333
“When you come together to eat” of the Week 1 Cor. 11:33

  • Correct Participants: Christians who have not eaten the supper

    • The opportunity to eat at a second assembly allows them to obey the Lord’s commandment to eat

    • Also commands to give, to sing, to pray and to be edified by hearing the word

  • Correct Conduct of Participants, 1 Cor. 11:23-29

LORD'S SUPPER


1 corinthians 11 17 22
1 Corinthians 11:17-22 of the Week

  • Abuse of the Lord’s Supper

    • Being associated with a common meal,11:18-21

  • Class divisions arising among them

    • Apparent as they abused the purpose of the Lord’s Supper,11:20-22

PROBLEMS


1 corinthians 11 22 34
1 Corinthians 11:22-34 of the Week

  • Properly distinguish between the practice and purpose of the Lord’s Supper and a common meal, 11:22-32, 34

    • Assemble for worship, 11:22

    • Nature & purpose of supper, 11:23-27

    • Proper heart, 11:28-32

SOLUTION


1 corinthians 11 22 341
1 Corinthians 11:22-34 of the Week

  • Be united in your eating of the Lord’s Supper

    • Do not despise one another, 11:22

    • Wait for one another, 11:33

  • Individual responsibility is fulfilled when the church comes together, 11:27-28 (18, 20, 33)

SOLUTION


Wait for one another 1 cor 11 33
“Wait for one another” of the Week 1 Cor. 11:33

  • “Wait for one another” (ekdechomai) (wait, tarry): “1) to receive, accept 2) to look for, expect, wait for, await” (Thayer, 193)

  • Part of the remedy for the division that existed among them (11:21-22)

  • Look for, expect (1 Cor. 16:11; Heb. 11:10)

LORD'S SUPPER


Wait for one another 1 cor 11 331
“Wait for one another” of the Week 1 Cor. 11:33

  • When you assemble, receive or accept each other so that your coming together is for the better rather than for the worse (11:17)

    • That is, so that you will be able to “eat the Lord’s Supper” decently and orderly(11:20-21)

    • This is a UNITY argument, not a TIME argument,11:18-21

LORD'S SUPPER


Wait for one another 1 cor 11 332
“Wait for one another” of the Week 1 Cor. 11:33

  • Commanded of all who are present in the assembly

    • Not to those who are PRESENT waiting for some who are ABSENT to arrive

    • When you “come together to eat” – wait for one another!

    • Have an orderly arrangement that receives all and remedies division

LORD'S SUPPER


Wait for one another 1 cor 11 333
“Wait for one another” of the Week 1 Cor. 11:33

  • Then, properly eat the supper; it is not a common meal, 11:34

    • A memorial, 1 Cor. 11:23-25 (Matt. 26:26-28)

    • A proclamation of the Lord’s death, 1 Cor. 11:26

    • A communion with the Lord, Matt. 26:29; 1 Cor. 10:16, 21

LORD'S SUPPER


The objection the nt pattern offers the supper once on the lord s day
The Objection of the Week :The NT Pattern Offers the Supper Once on the Lord’s Day

  • No example of more than once

  • Consistency of argument demands only one assembly on the Lord’s day, period.

    • Some have done away with second service for this reason

PM SUPPER


Defense of no second assembly supper you can t give an example of it
Defense of No Second Assembly Supper of the Week :“You can’t give an example of it”

  • Cannot produce an example of accepting contribution, praying, singing or preaching at a second assembly

  • Why can these be done by the person who was absent from the first assembly, but he cannot eat the Supper? (Where is this NT pattern?)

  • There is a pattern for all who are present in the assembly to receive or “wait for one another”1 Cor. 11:33

PM SUPPER


Multiple lord s day assemblies and for making supper available at each
Multiple Lord’s Day Assemblies of the Week and for Making Supper Available at each

  • Authority is established by command, approved example or necessary inference

  • NT pattern for this practice exists in necessary inferences

NT PATTERN


Multiple lord s day assemblies and for making supper available at each1
Multiple Lord’s Day Assemblies of the Week and for Making Supper Available at each

  • 1 Cor. 11:18 necessarily implies the right and the ability of the church to “come together” more than once on Lord’s day

  • 1 Cor. 11:20, 33 necessarily implies the church can make an orderly arrangement that allows Christians to eat the supper

    • This is “waiting” on one another

NT PATTERN


  • The Lord’s Supper is an individual responsibility that is fulfilled when the church comes together, 1 Cor. 11:28 (18, 20, 33)

  • Instead of preventing Christians from remembering the Lord’s death by eating the supper, churches have the authority to provide the occasion for this communion with the Lord

LORD'S SUPPER


  • Correct Realm fulfilled when the church comes together, : Kingdom, Lk. 22:18

  • Correct Arrangement: Assembly of the church, 1 Cor. 11:18, 20, 33-34

  • Correct Time: First day of the week, Acts 20:7

  • Correct Elements: Unleavened bread and fruit of the vine, 1 Cor. 11:23-25; Lk. 22:18-20; Matt. 26:26-29

  • Correct Participants: Christians, Acts 20:7

  • Correct Conduct, 1 Cor. 11:23-29
