Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:24


11:24 This is my body, which is broken for you - That is, this broken bread is the sign of my body, which is even now to be pierced and wounded for your iniquities. Take then, and eat of, this bread, in an humble, thankful, obediential remembrance of my dying love; of the extremity of my sufferings on your behalf, of the blessings I have thereby procured for you, and of the obligations to love and duty which I have by all this laid upon you.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 11:24


1Co 11:24 This is my body. Is this literal? "I am the true vine" (Joh 15:1) and "These [women] are the two covenants" (Ga 4:24) are kindred expressions. The idea is: "This represents my body". The eating of the bread is not to literally eat the Lord's flesh, but is done in remembrance. It is a token that reminds of his body.
