On the Journey with Matt and Ken, Ep. 41:
The Real Presence – The Eucharist as Sacrifice
Matt Swaim and Ken Hensley continue their discussion of how they came to believe in the Catholic teaching of the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist.
Matt and Ken explore the idea of the Eucharist as memorial sacrifice. In their Evangelical Christian backgrounds, both of them would have observed the Lord’s Supper with reverence, but the idea of talking about it as a sacrifice would have been utterly foreign to them.
They dig into Scripture and the writings of the early Church fathers to look at how they referred to the observance of the Lord’s Supper using overtly sacrificial language.
