The Lord's Supper

1 Corinthians 11:23-28  (ID: 1661)

The Lord’s Supper signifies Christ’s forgiveness and abiding love and points forward to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb as described in Revelation. In this sermon, Alistair Begg explores the importance of the sacraments, unpacking the particular significance of communion. As we receive the bread and wine, we are reminded of our salvation, our identity in Jesus, and our future hope: that we will be united with Christ in eternity.


23For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, 24and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for5 you. Do this in remembrance of me.”6 25In 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.” 26For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.

27Whoever, 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. 28Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
