Worship Terminology – The Lord’s Supper


This is the first of five posts on names we use for the Lord’s Supper.  At the Last Supper Jesus took the centuries old tradition of the Passover and gave it new meaning as a remembrance of His death.

This new meal is referred to in various ways, but the most common are: Eucharist, Holy Communion, the Lord’s Supper and the Breaking of Bread.  Each of these names for the meal give us a different perspective on this important memorial.  Over the next few months we will look at each of these terms individually and consider what this term tells us about the meal and how it might lead us to worship differently.

Question:  What term are you most comfortable using?
