Bible study questions for Lesson 2 of my series entitled Christian Fundamentals.

Answer the following questions with Scripture. (Download a PDF version of these questions here.)

The Lord's Supper

  1. When Jesus set up the memorial we call the Lord's Supper, what day of the week was it (according to the Jewish calendar)?

  2. Was the Last Supper the actual Passover meal (Ex. 12)? Defend your answer.

  3. According to Scripture, what is the purpose of the Lord's Supper?

  4. We know that the Lord's Supper elements were "bread" (Matt. 26:26-27; Mark 14:22; Luke 22:19; 1 Cor. 11:23-24) and "fruit of the vine" (Matt. 26:29; Mark 14:25; Luke 22:18) from a "cup" (Matt. 26:26-27; Mark 14:23; Luke 22:20; 1 Cor. 11:25-26).  Since GOD has specified the elements of the Lord's Supper, how would He view us substituting other elements?

  5. Does Scripture specify that Jesus used unleavened bread?
    • If yes, list the passage(s).

    • If no:
      • Do you believe that Jesus used unleavened bread? Explain how you reached your conclusion.

      • Would it be wrong to use leavened bread for the Lord's Supper?

  6. Would it be acceptable to use wine for the Lord's Supper today? Explain.

  7. Does GOD "command" Christians when (or how frequently) they should observe the Lord's Supper?
    • If yes, list the passage(s).

    • If no:
      • What does GOD say regarding frequency of observing the Lord's Supper?

      • How frequently should Christians observe the Lord's Supper? Explain how you reached your conclusion.

  8. Is it acceptable for a Christian to eat the Lord's Supper:
    • More than once on a Sunday? Why or why not?

    • On a day other than Sunday? Why or why not?

  9. Suppose you are traveling on a Sunday and are unable to assemble with other Christians. Assuming you had the elements, would you observe the Lord's Supper by yourself? Why or why not?
