Pastor Tom Naumann digs into the Biblical definition of the "Real Presence" in our Word of the Week. The Real Presence is the term that is used to describe the Biblical view of the Lord's Supper which teaches that Christ gives His very body with the bread of Holy Communion and His very blook with the wine distributed in Holy Communion. In contrast to this Biblical teaching, other churches teach views like Transubstantiation (Roman Catholic Church) which teaches that the bread and wine become the body and blood of Christ and cease being bread and wine and the view of Representation (Reformed churches) which says that the bread and wine ONLY represent Christ's body and blood. Based on Jesus' clear words in the Gospels and the Apostle Paul's clear teaching in 1 Corinthians 11, we can be sure of the teaching of the Real Presence in the Lord's Supper which is given to us for the forgiveness of our sins!
