The theme of the November 2006 issue of Tabletalk is the Lord’s Supper. In Geneva, John Calvin instructed ministers to take great care when administering this sacrament. They were to preach that “although we see only bread and wine, let us not doubt that…Jesus is our heavenly bread, to feed and nourish us unto life eternal.” In many evangelical churches today, the Lord’s Supper is all but relegated to the shelf. This is not surprising, especially when many a church’s desire is to show the world that they are not much different than the so-called “seekers.” For this reason, this issue of Tabletalk will aim to present a succinct, Calvinian and biblical understanding of the Lord’s Supper.
Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Tom Ascol, Terry Johnson, Robert Letham, Keith A. Mathison, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Gene Edward Veith. Tabletalk features articles about topics central to the Christian faith and daily, in-depth Bible studies.
The 2006 Bible studies take a careful look at the book of Genesis.
