Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:25


11:25 After supper - Therefore ye ought not to confound this with a common meal. Do this in remembrance of me - The ancient sacrifices were in remembrance of sin: this sacrifice, once offered, is still represented in remembrance of the remission of sins.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:25


1Co 11:25 This do ye, as oft as ye drink [it], in remembrance of me. The memorial design of the Lord's supper is reiterated. It is not a "sacrifice of the mass", but a remembrance of Christ's sacrifice.

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 11

    THANK GOD FOR APOSTLE PAUL
  • In this section of this Chapter the Lords supper is talked about. We are to examine our self and to understand the relationship we have with God before partaking of the Lord s Holy Supper. Earlier in this chapter it talks about the proper worship as well as unworthy communion. What s important to examine is where is your heart, is this partaking a tradition or ritual or is it seeking that reassurance of cleansing your heart and forgiveness of our sins. As we have talked many times about is your reasoning for attending church or attending communion for community recognition or status or is it for a true love of following God. We come to that alter rail to eat of the bread and drink of the cup, through the grace of God, believing and trusting that our sin debt has been washed away and knowing that through the shed blood of Jesus our salvation was given to us. Our kneeling for this supper brings to remembrance the sacrifice of our Lord, the renewing of our spirit, remembering Gods grace and mercy on us sinners and feeling God s love in our heart. Our prayer as we partake is to give our self to God and commit our life to serving, honoring and following him. As we rise from this blessing we feel the weight of sin lifted, we feel God s comfort and peace he has put upon us and we can see the world with our eyes on God, our ears to hearing the truth of his word and our actions guided by the Holy Spirit. We walk in rejoicing God s love.

    Many people get caught up in thinking they have to be worthy to go to the table of the lord Jesus taught do this in remembrance of me and understand the meaning of the bread and non fermented wine That is what Paul is referring to when he says examine your selves unworthily not worthy non of us are worthy. Partaking of the lords table in faith is all that is meant.

    No transubstantiation here. !!!
    Yet another totally absurd notion confected by men dressed in rich vestments to give the impresion off power. Instead why not invoke the fulness of God the Holy Spirit!!??

    Verse 3 starts with "but" which changes thought flow to Paul's answer to their question. The Gr. word for head means "source or supply" (see "sum" Acts 22:28.) The present context describes Adam being the substance for Eve's being, and that "in the Lord" (see v.11) Christ is the life source for both. (every man.) There is no indication to "head" meaning superior role, rather like a river's head.
  • Ben Weaver
    Frequently misinterpreted passage! The Greek had no indication to a symbol, but simply stated, Because of the angels, (see Heb. 1:14) the woman ought to have power (jurisdiction, rule, or right) on/over her head. Rev. 2:26 uses the same two Gr. words as: "I will give him power over the nations." Our verses 2 thru 9 are referring to original lost creation, thereafter to being in the Lord. vs.11
