Wesley's Notes for Luke 22:20


22:20 This cup is the New Testament - Here is an undeniable figure, whereby the cup is put for the wine in the cup. And this is called, The New Testament in Christ's blood, which could not possibly mean, that it was the New Testament itself, but only the seal of it, and the sign of that blood which was shed to confirm it.

    The Cup,the church,contains the life in Christ.
    The content of this life is Christ's blood
    The blood of Christ is life, forgiveness and the Gospel to be preached,
    So this verse says all to be said about the Christian life.
