The taking of blood in Christianity

Posted by NikkiT2 on November 27, 2002, at 9:27:13

I posted this on Admin, but as I've been asked to keep it administrative, I am posting over here.. i really am interested in this, and not just trolling.

Ta :o)


A quote from a Christian Church (Church of England) web site

"On the night before Jesus was put to death on the Cross, he had his last supper with the disciples.
During the meal, he took some bread and gave thanks to God in the Jewish fashion. He broke it into pieces and gave it to his friends saying it was his Body. After the meal, he took some wine, gave thanks to God and gave it to them saying it was his Blood. He commanded them to continue this simple ceremony in remembrance of him. "


The words used during Holy Communion

Words at the Giving of Communion

The body of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which was given for you,
preserve your body and soul unto everlasting life.
Take and eat this in remembrance that Christ died for you,
and feed on him in your heart by faith with thanksgiving.

The blood of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which was shed for you,
preserve your body and soul unto everlasting life.
Drink this in remembrance that Christ's blood was shed for you,
and be thankful.

The body of Christ.
The blood of Christ.

The body of Christ keep you in eternal life.
The blood of Christ keep you in eternal life.

The body of Christ, broken for you.
The blood of Christ, shed for you.

The bread of heaven in Christ Jesus.
The cup of life in Christ Jesus.


From another site

"They would be supported by the church catechism, which speaks of "the body and blood of Christ, which are verily and indeed taken and received by the faithful in the Lord's supper." "

Could you explain why it is OK to drink Christs blood, but no one elses??
