The New Covenant (or New Testament) is more than a collection of writings consisting of the four gospels, the book of Acts, various epistles, and the book of Revelation glued and stitched together between a leather jacket. It should primarily be understood as the present, eternal, relational reality between God and his people. The Lord’:s Supper was initiated and given to us by Jesus himself as a means to commemorate and celebrate this blood-bought relationship. As we examine the overarching theme of the whole Bible we see that this relationship is a love relationship. It is expressed in terms of a marriage relationship, culminating in the marriage between Christ and his bride—:the church. If the theme of the Bible is indeed a romance, and if Christ is our bridegroom and we are his bride, then to gain a proper understanding of the significance of the Lord’:s Supper, we must see it within this relational context. The book, The Lord’:s Supper, begins by examining the New Covenant as a wedding covenant between Christ and his bride. It looks at the pictures embedded in the Old Testament concerning the bread and the wine that foreshadow this celebration. Then it moves on to the New Testament to explain what exactly this “:New Covenant”: is that we are celebrating, how the Lord’:s Supper was practiced in the early church—:with practical applications for today, and then addresses the murky problems that the apostle Paul had to address in his first letter to the Corinthians, which are so commonly misunderstood. For much of the believing community, the true meaning of the Lord’:s Supper has been virtually lost, and its practice has become so misconfigured so as to render it unrecognizable in comparison to the way in which it was practiced in the first century. Draping it in layers of institutionalism, superstition, and religious attitudes borrowed from pagan religion, the enemy has done a masterful job of robbing Christians of their true inheritance in understanding and celebrating the elevated, sacred, and mysterious significance of this simple transaction that governs our relationship with our Creator and Redeemer. In The Lord’:s Supper, these layers are stripped away to reveal that our eternal union with our Lord is something far greater than the earthly picture of marriage could but faintly portray. Each time we partake of the bread and the cup, this is truly something to celebrate
