Beyond Memorial Toward a Richer Understanding of the Lord's Supper through Synthesis of Spiritual Presence, Human Participation, and Physical Media
Main Article Content
This article discusses the primacy of divine action in the observance of the Lord's Supper as a correction to some common misconceptions in memorial views. The author discusses the similarities and differences between Zwingli's memorial view and Calvin's spiritual presence view. This article presents a modified spiritual presence view to capture three essential elements of the Supper: the primacy of divine action, the need for human participation, and the formative importance of the physical media of the Supper.
