Transcript of The Sacrament of the Altar

Sacrament of the Altar What is the Sacrament of the Altar?

It is the true body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ under the bread and wine, instituted by Christ Himself for us Christians to eat and to drink. Where is this written?
The holy Evangelists Matthew, Mark, Luke, and St. Paul write: Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the night when He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and gave it to the disciples and said: “Take, eat; this is My body, which is given for you. This do in remembrance of Me.”

In the same way also He took the cup after supper, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you; this cup is the new testament in My blood, which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” Matthew 26:26-28 Mark 14:22-24 Luke 22:19-20 1 Corinthians 11:23-25 Mathhew 26:2 ". . . and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified.” This is Jesus' meal
not ours.

that we should at all times and in all places

But anyone who does not believe these words or doubts them is unworthy and unprepared, for the words “for you” require all hearts to believe. Lord's Supper
