Bible Commentary for 1 Corinthians 11:24

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.

    God honors a cheerful giver. Tithing isn't really spoken of in the New Testaments. In the Old Testaments God asked His people to tithe a tenth which was an act of obedience, which went to help the poorer peoples of The LORD. So with that in mind, I would ask Father to bless the money n the one in need n I'm sure He will honor your request n bless you in return.

    Marilyn,

    Tithes were an ordinance for people of Israel. As a Christian, all you have is God's and how you "give/share" is what is from your heart.

    "Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:7
  • Norman Walker Butch on 1 Corinthians 11:24
    I am going to call this the question from a old man loosing it. Does the Lord get mad at you or does he just deal with you one on one or how does he deal with it in other ways? Sorry I am getting old and do not understand things as good as I used to. Does he get mad, does he hold it against you or does he forgive you for everything he can and does he forgive you for the things you do wrong and wipe the slate clean when you ask for forgiveness so how does he deal with you when you do wrong? When I remember just what I wanted to ask I will put it back on here but thank you all if you can help me with this now. Amen I will come back and check this one. I really wish there was a easier way to answer these questions and that is about the only thing on this site I would change but it is a great site the best I have seen ever. I know I can use google but I know more than likely the people on here are honest and from the heart!

    Norman, I'm an old man, too. Just turned 79.

    If you have put your trust in Jesus, believing that He died to pay the penalty for your sin and that He rose from the dead and lives, and you have turned from your sin, then you have been declared righteous before God, even though we sin every day in thought, word and deed.

    "This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."1Jn 1:5-10 (KJVA)

    "As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us."Psa 103:12 (KJVA)

    However, although our sins have been forgiven, we may suffer consequences. Look at King David. He committed adultery with Bathsheba and had her husband murdered and then after he confessed his sin when confronted by the prophet, God forgave his sins. However, he suffered sever consequences of family turmoil and shame. God disciplines His children, not out of anger, but as a father. Read Hebrews 12.

    John 6:55 is the prophesy of Christ that his church (Church of Christ would do until he comes again in the resurection.

    Can you name all virtues of a worthy Christian, bf he partakes in Holy Communion?
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 11:24
    I'm unsure what you mean. The only qualification I know of for a Christian to partake of the Lord's Supper, is that he be born again of God's Spirit & comes before the Lord with a heart & conscience that harbours no sin or ill against anyone. He should set things right in his heart & with others before eating of the emblems that vividly remind him what Jesus has done for Him at Calvary. So it would by hypocritical for him to remember the Lord, giving thanks, yet still have a heart that stained with unconfessed sin.
