The Lord's Supper

(Mat 26:26–29; Mar 14:22–25; Luk 22:14–23 )

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:27 - For this reason, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:28 - A person should examine himself first, and in this way let him eat the bread and drink of the cup.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:29 - For the one who eats and drinks without careful regard for the body eats and drinks judgment against himself.
