1 Corinthians 11:18b-21And I believe it in part, 19 for there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be recognized. 20 When you come together, it is not the Lord's supper that you eat. 21 For in eating, each one goes ahead with his own meal. One goes hungry, another gets drunk.

  • 22 What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and humiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend (praise) you in this? No, I will not.

  • 1 Corinthians 11:23-2623 For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.

Mark 10:43b-4543b But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

  • 1 Corinthians 11:27-2927 Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself.

discerning the body
“…discerning the body…”
  • 1 Corinthians 10:16-1716 The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread. 
  • 1 Corinthians 12:12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ
  • 1 Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.
examine yourself discern the body
Examine Yourself & Discern the Body
  • “In the light of the broken nature of the fellowship that Paul is addressing, ‘examine yourself’ is related to ‘discerning the body.’ This surely means: ‘Remember that you enter into this gathering as a part of the body of Christ that has come together for healing, restoration, proclamation and empowerment.’ Paul’s readers were asked to remember that this is not one more Greek drinking party.”

– Kenneth Bailey, Paul Through Mediterranean Eyes

examine yourself discern the body1
Examine Yourself & Discern the Body
  • “It is not merely a social occasion to pass the time with select friends. There is no audience watching a performance. Leaders and led are all participants. They have come together as the body of Christ to remember the saving events that created them as a body and to proclaim that salvation to the world.” – Kenneth Bailey, Paul Through Mediterranean Eyes
examine yourself discern the body2
Examine Yourself & Discern the Body
  • “Each worshiper is intimately connected with the other worshipers, and the struggles, joys, fears and failures of all are known and shared. All come as sinners in need of grace, and in that shared awareness there is openness to receive needed healing. The only believer who is unworthy to receive the Holy Communion is the person who thinks that he/she is worthy to receive it.”

– Kenneth Bailey, Paul Through Mediterranean Eyes

the history of the lord s supper
The History of the Lord’s Supper
  • “For the early Christians, the Lord’s Supper was a festive communal meal. The mood was one of celebration and joy. When believers gathered for the meal, they broke the bread and passed it around. Then they ate their meal, which then concluded after the cup was passed around. The Lord’s Supper was essentially a Christian banquet. And there was no clergyman to officiate.”

– Frank Viola and George Barna, Pagan Christianity

the history of the lord s supper1
The History of the Lord’s Supper
  • “Today, tradition has forced us to take the Supper as a tongue-tickling thimble of grape juice and a tiny, tasteless bite-size cracker. The Supper is often taken in an atmosphere of solemnity. We are told to remember the horrors of our Lord’s death and to reflect on our sins. In addition, tradition has taught us that taking the Lord’s Supper can be a dangerous thing. (1 Cor. 11:27-33)” – Frank Viola and George Barna, Pagan Christianity
