Mar 20, 2017: Christ In Word and Table

Robert E. Webber

Christ is presented to us through re-presentation in both the Word and the Table. . . . In our concern for preaching, somehow we have let things get out of balance. We’ve neglected the deep meaning of the Lord’s Table. I believe, however, that as we open ourselves to the gracious working of God at the Lord’s Supper, we will experience a greater balance between the Word of God and the Lord’s Table. And, in turn, we will find a better balance between head and heart, mind and emotion, intellect and feeling.
