The Lord's Supper-Table
"Christ, our Passover,
was sacrificed for us,"
1 Corinthians 5'7.
I speak as to wise men;
judge for yourselves what I say,"
1 Corinthians 10'15.
Paul could speak plainly to the Saints at Corinth. After all, he did have a sincere love for them (2 Corinthians 11'11).
And as Luke points out he had "continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them," Acts 18'11.
Foremost in his teaching would have been that the Jesus who the Corinthians had received is the One who had fulfilled the Old Covenant Passover - the Believers' Lamb of God, our Passover.
Paul is concerned about a number of things. One of them is about keeping the Lord's Supper-Table in sincerity and truth (1 Corinthians 5'8).
Now he found himself having to speak sternly to them. Even so, he still addresses them "as to wise men".
Keeping the Passover Feast is central to New Covenant Kingdom teaching so it's essential to have some basic understanding.
For that it's necessary to look at two historic events: Israel's Passover and Our Passover.
