Communion (sometimes called Holy Communion, the Eucharist, or the Lord’s Supper) is a time of fellowship with God and others who follow Jesus.
Communion was instituted by Jesus (hence the alternate name of the Lord’s Supper), as a replacement for or extension of the Old Testament Passover celebration.
Communion celebrates Jesus’ work (that is, his sacrifice) to make us right with God.
Key verse about Communion: “The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?” (1 Corinthians 10:16, NKJV).
A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 1,000-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and many books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
