Bible Term: Communion

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.
