Eat My Flesh Drink My Blood - Ana Mendez Ferrell
Both report that Jesus ate such a meal and it is reasonable to assume such is the case. For the second question Paul is our only source reporting that Jesus spoke of the bread as his body and the wine as his blood -- since Mark, Matthew, and Luke derive their accounts from him. John reports an intimate meal Jesus had with his disciples but never says anything about words such as these spoken over bread and wine. It is difficult to imagine John, who was aware of the other gospels, leaving such an important tradition out of his gospel except by intention.
His silence is essentially his "no" vote on the historical reliability of our single source -- Paul. But there is another reason for doubting the historical validity of Paul's account. Other than Paul, our earliest record of the words spoken at a Christian Eucharist celebration over the bread and the wine come from an early Christian text not in the New Testament called the Didache.
In this precious document we seem to have a non-Pauline version of the Last Supper:. You shall give thanks as follows: First, with respect to the cup: "We give you thanks, our Father, for the holy vine of David, your child, which you made known to us through Jesus your child. To you be the glory forever. To you be the glory forever" Didache This precious text, discovered quite by chance in the library in Constantinople in , provides us with clear evidence that early Christian communities were gathering together for a common thanksgiving meal called the Eucharist, blessing bread and wine, but with no connection whatsoever to the Pauline words associated with the Lord's Supper that became the norm within Christianity.
It is also noteworthy that both Jesus and David are equated in this prayer as "your child," showing the fully human understanding of Jesus as a bloodline descendant of David and thus heir of his royal dynasty. The Didache as a whole, shows no influence of Paul's teachings or traditions. It fits well with the broader picture we have seen based on the Q source, the letter of James, and the scattered texts that we can identify from later Jewish-Christian sources. What Jesus said at his Last Supper with his disciples we have no way of knowing but there is evidence he thought of that meal as a "Messianic banquet" to be eaten in anticipation of the their table fellowship in the future kingdom of God.
He tells the Twelve:. You are those who have continued with me in my trials: and I assign to you, as my Father assigned to me, a kingdom, that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel Luke This saying of Jesus is from the Q source, which scholars consider to be the earliest collection of the sayings of Jesus, not from Paul.
Notice in Luke it is connected to the Last Supper. Luke relies on his source Mark his Lord's Supper account, including the Pauline tradition of the words of institution about eating the body and drinking the blood of Jesus.
But surprisingly, Luke knows another alternative source with no such language! He ends up placing them both into his narrative, juxtaposed one after the other:.
For I tell you I will not eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God. And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he said, "Take this, and divide it among yourselves.
For I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes. When one reads both traditions as a unit it makes little sense, because Jesus ends up taking the cup twice, but saying entirely different things. When the two traditions are separated each forms a discrete unit.
This becomes all the more significant since Luke's Tradition A fits with what we might expect Jesus to have said in a Jewish Messianic context.
Oddly, Mark appears to preserve just a bit of this more primitive Jewish tradition, since Jesus concludes the meal by saying: "Truly, I say to you, I shall not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God" Mark Matthew includes this verse as well, copying it from Mark Matthew The reason it is odd is that it does not fit well with the Pauline "this is my body" and "this is my blood" tradition that Mark makes the center of his Last Supper scene.
Jesus is obviously not anticipating one day drinking his own blood with the disciples in the kingdom. Evidently Mark knew something of the two traditions but mutes the one while playing up the other. For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. As the living father sent me, and I live because of the father, so he who eats me will live because of me. This is the bread which came down from heaven, not such as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.
All these passages, I think, are excellent. But, the one that I love the most and is most spiritually energizing for me is the first one. When you consider it, this line can mean many things to many people. And, it can even mean different things to the same person on different days.
What better way to spend Lent than before Jesus Christ himself, quieting yourself and simply taking in his magnificence, power, and enduring love and all that that means to you? Marge Fenelon is a Catholic author, blogger, speaker, and award-winning journalist.
Augustine says: we need unbelievers. They provide us with the opportunity of knowing more clearly what we believe. And the unbelievers as recorded in St. He explained how the supernatural life has to be nourished with His own flesh and blood and said He will give us His own flesh to eat and His own blood to drink.
The people who heard Christ speaking like this were astonished, even scandalized. They objected three times, and finally, many of the people, including some of his own disciples, left Him. Who can believe it! Yet so far from retracting or even qualifying what He had just said, Jesus repeated His promise of giving His own flesh and blood.
He foresaw who in the future would not believe in the Eucharist. This includes Judas Iscariot, who later left the Last Supper. Not believing in the Real Presence, he went on to betray his Master. You are the Son of God. You have the words of eternal life. These words of Jesus are historical. They were really spoken by Christ to His apostles. We know these words of institution were not spoken figuratively, but literally. We know this from the wording and language Christ used.
There is nothing in the text of the words Jesus used which suggests a figurative or symbolic interpretation. You have to read into the words of Jesus what the unbelieving mind thinks Jesus said.
How I like to share this with you. Believe me, there are many people using eisegesis today! But to use true exegesis, there is a presupposition. In a matter of such paramount importance, the circumstances demanded that Jesus would not have recourse to meaningless, and worse still, deceptive figures of speech.
Because of who Jesus is, a just God, He had to avoid any risk of misleading the human race on such an important matter as the Eucharist. Thus, He did not allow any form of words that His followers might possibly misunderstand. Toggle navigation Home. Contact Copyright Privacy. Book file PDF easily for everyone and every device.

Meditations Of Jesus Christ: Eat My Flesh & Drink My Blood
The Church draws her life from the Eucharist. This truth does not simply express a daily experience of faith, but recapitulates the heart of the mystery of the Church. Ever since Pentecost, when the Church, the People of the New Covenant, began her pilgrim journey towards her heavenly homeland, the Divine Sacrament has continued to mark the passing of her days, filling them with confident hope. During the Great Jubilee of the Year I had an opportunity to celebrate the Eucharist in the Cenacle of Jerusalem where, according to tradition, it was first celebrated by Jesus himself. The Upper Room was where this most holy Sacrament was instituted. Mt ; Lk ; 1 Cor

The Mystery of Faith, that is, the ineffable gift of the Eucharist that the Catholic Church received from Christ, her Spouse, as a pledge of His immense love, is something that she has always devoutly guarded as her most precious treasure, and during the Second Vatican Council she professed her faith and veneration in a new and solemn declaration. In dealing with the restoration of the sacred liturgy, the Fathers of the Council were led by their pastoral concern for the whole Church to regard it as a matter of highest importance to urge the faithful to participate actively, with undivided faith and the utmost devotion, in the celebration of this Most Holy Mystery, to offer it to God along with the priest as a sacrifice for their own salvation and that of the whole world, and to use it as spiritual nourishment. For if the sacred liturgy holds first place in the life of the Church, then the Eucharistic Mystery stands at the heart and center of the liturgy, since it is the font of life that cleanses us and strengthens us to live not for ourselves but for God and to be united to each other by the closest ties of love. In order to make the indissoluble bond that exists between faith and devotion perfectly clear, the Fathers of the Council decided, in the course of reaffirming the doctrine that the Church has always held and taught and that was solemnly defined by the Council of Trent, to offer the following compendium of truths as an introduction to their treatment of the Most Holy Mystery of the Eucharist:. He did this in order to perpetuate the Sacrifice of the Cross throughout the centuries until He should come again, and so to entrust to His beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of His Death and Resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a paschal banquet in which Christ is eaten, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.

The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.
Когда улица сделала поворот, Беккер вдруг увидел прямо перед собой собор и вздымающуюся ввысь Гиральду. Звон колоколов оглушал, эхо многократно отражалось от высоких стен, окружающих площадь. Людские потоки из разных улиц сливались в одну черную реку, устремленную к распахнутым дверям Севильского собора. Беккер попробовал выбраться и свернуть на улицу Матеуса-Гаго, но понял, что находится в плену людского потока. Идти приходилось плечо к плечу, носок в пятку. У испанцев всегда было иное представление о плотности, чем у остального мира.
- Сколько. Беккер изобразил крайнюю степень негодования. - Вы хотите дать взятку представителю закона? - зарычал. - Нет, конечно. Я просто подумал… - Толстяк быстро убрал бумажник. - Я… я… - Совсем растерявшись, он сел на край постели и сжал руки. Кровать застонала под его весом.
Она посмотрела на светящиеся мониторы Стратмора, бросилась к его письменному столу и начала нажимать на клавиши. Отключить ТРАНСТЕКСТТеперь это нетрудная задача, поскольку она находится возле командного терминала. Она вызвала нужное командное окно и напечатала: ВЫКЛЮЧИТЬ КОМПЬЮТЕР Палец привычно потянулся к клавише Ввод. - Сьюзан! - рявкнул голос у нее за спиной. Она в страхе повернулась, думая, что это Хейл. Однако в дверях появился Стратмор.
Бринкерхофф покачал головой. Человек ничего не сказал, задумался на мгновение, а потом обратился к Сьюзан. - Лиланд Фонтейн, - представился он, протягивая руку. - Я рад, что вы живы-здоровы. Сьюзан не отрывала глаз от директора.
- Ничего. - Клянусь, - сказал. Она смотрела на него с недоумением. - Надеюсь, это не уловка с целью заставить меня скинуть платье. - Мидж, я бы никогда… - начал он с фальшивым смирением.
Он бросил быстрый взгляд на Сьюзан, которая по-прежнему сидела на стуле, обхватив голову руками и целиком уйдя в. Фонтейн не мог понять, в чем дело, но, какими бы ни были причины ее состояния, выяснять это сейчас не было времени. - Нужно решать, сэр! - требовал Джабба.
Она потянулась к Дэвиду, но он исчез, и ее руки сомкнулись в пустоте. Телефонный звонок окончательно прогнал сон. Сьюзан Флетчер вздохнула, села в кровати и потянулась к трубке. - Алло. - Сьюзан, это Дэвид.
Судьба в это утро не была благосклонна к Беккеру. Выбегая из собора в маленький дворик, он зацепился пиджаком за дверь, и плотная ткань резко заставила его остановиться, не сразу разорвавшись. Он потерял равновесие, шатаясь, выскочил на слепящее солнце и прямо перед собой увидел лестницу. Перепрыгнув через веревку, он побежал по ступенькам, слишком поздно сообразив, куда ведет эта лестница.
