The Letter of 1 Corinthians was probably written around 54 AD which was well before the writing of any of the canonical Gospels, and if that is the case, these are the first words of the LORD that were ever written down to be recorded in the Bible! And what are these first words recorded but, “this is my body… which is for you”. To be honest, if we can be absolutely straightforward about it… these are the most loving words, born from the darkest time, that strike at the very heart of the Gospel. The thrust of our passage is communion, it is sharing and it reminds us of the reflection that we are to be of Christ – who gave us His Supper as the ultimate picture of communion. We should observe that the Lord’s Supper is a most special mark of Christ’s tender love in sharing Himself!
