First Corinthians 11:17-34, An Old Conflict That Still Matters

The 30th article of the Baptist Confession of Faith explains the Lord’s Table, or Communion. In the 16th century, a conflict arose among Protestant Reformers about what happens at the Table when the church gathers to partake of the elements (the bread and cup). Far from being an archaic controversy with little relevance to us in the 21st century, their concerns are still vitally important to the Christian faith today. We will look at the Scriptures through the lens of this old conflict.
