People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:23


1Co 11:23 For I have received from the Lord that which I also delivered unto you. While at Corinth he had told the church the solemn history of the institution of the supper, an account that he had received directly by inspiration from the Lord. Such a sacred event was utterly inconsistent with strife, revelry or disorder. The history is repeated to show this. That the Lord Jesus . . . took bread. The account given here (1Co 11:23-25) of the institution of the Lord's supper is one in the four New Testament. That of Matthew (Mt 26:26-30) is of an eye witness; those of Mark (Mr 14:22-25) and Luke (Lu 22:14-20) were received by them from witnesses who were present; that of Paul was "received from the Lord". Many regard it as the oldest written account of the event.
