THE LORD'S SUPPER: A Biblical Interpretation

Feeling that the results of serious scholarship ""are yet to make their way to the Communion table via the pastor's study,"" the author undertakes an interpretation of the Lord's Supper through a study of the Old Testament and Hebraic bases of the eucharistic words and actions. The Sacrifical framework of the Supper; its Prophetic Symbolism; the forms of sacrifice set forth in the Passover, in the ""Servant"" of Second Isaiah, and in a New Covenant; the meaning of the Remembrance of Jesus; and of the themes of The Kingdom and the Messianic Feast, are among the main topics developed. The author succeeds in identifying the roots of the Sacrament in these Hebraic antecedents. He makes competent use of Biblical and other resources in developing the argument of the book. Limited
