"As they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, 'Take and eat it; this is My body.'" -Matthew 26:26 (HCSB)
A follow-up to "Believer's Baptism" in the New American Commentary Studies in Bible & Theology series, "The Lord's Supper" explores the current Baptist view of the communion sacrament. Contributors include Andreas Kostenberger ("The Lord's Supper as a Passover Meal"), Jonathan Pennington ("The Last Supper in the Gospels"), Jim Hamilton ("The Lord's Supper in Paul"), and Michael Haykin ("Communion in the Early Church"). Adding a helpful perspective, chapters are also provided on the Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Calvinist, and Zwinglian views of communion.
