On the Journey with Matt and Ken, Episode 35:
The Real Presence – Facing the Fathers
During Matt Swaim’s time as an Evangelical Christian, and Ken Hensley’s time as a Baptist pastor, both of them observed the Lord’s Supper as a memorial event, often using crackers and juice, that remembered Christ’s sacrifice. It was a solemn event, but not essential to Christian worship.
Matt and Ken share what they began to discover as they looked at the practice of the earliest Christians regarding their commemoration of the Lord’s Supper, and how the sources they found seemed to speak of Holy Communion as something much deeper and more mysterious than anything they had encountered in their various Protestant experiences.
