We! Are! Back! Happy New Year!!! Welcome to season 3!!! In episode one we revisit the book, Free to Be: A Handbook to Luther's Small Catechism. The subject at hand is the Lord's Supper. The prevailing view is that the Sacrament of the Altar is memorial or symbolic in nature. Yet, biblically and according to church history, Christ is bodily present, in, with, and under the bread and wine. He promises to never leave us nor forsake us. He promises to forgive us of our sin. According to Matthew 26:26, He keeps those promises at the Lord's Table, bodily. "Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins." What an amazing promise. Such a comfort!
