Summary

The Lord’s Supper, or communion, is so much more than just some words to recite and a small wafer and cup to eat and drink. In this Good Friday service, John Elmore helps us more fully understand the gravity, depth, and richness of the cross and how we remember it through the Lord’s Supper.

Key Takeaways

  • In the beginning, Adam and Eve were in perfect fellowship with God. But then sin entered the picture. Instead of wrath, God gave love. But the love that He gave came through a sacrifice—an animal that was slain to cover them both physically and spiritually (Genesis 3:21).
  • After the Garden of Eden and that break in man’s fellowship with God, there are four tables of reconciliation: the Passover table, the Last Supper, the Lord’s Supper, and the wedding feast of the Lamb.
  • The Passover table pointed forward to the coming Lamb of God.
  • At the Passover, a spotless male lamb would be killed (Exodus 12:5-6), with not a bone to be broken (Exodus 12:46). They would put the lamb’s blood on their door frames, making the symbol of the cross, and because of the blood God’s wrath would pass over them (Exodus 12:7-13). All of this was a foreshadowing of the cross.
  • At the Last Supper table, Jesus celebrated the Passover with His disciples and explained that He was about to be sacrificed as the Lamb of God (Luke 22:14-22).
  • There is no way to get from the Last Supper to the Lord’s Supper without the cross.
  • The Lord’s Supper looks back at the cross, remembering Jesus’s death for our sins (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
  • One day, those who are saved through faith in Jesus’s death and resurrection will be invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb (Revelation 19:6-9).
