The new covenant meal (podcast) (1 Corinthians 11:23–26)


Skip to content

A new covenant? How did Jesus’ bloodshed establish a new covenant? Who are the parties? Why a new covenant? Could a previous covenant shed light on this one?

In the Ancient Near East, a national covenant defined who was in power. That’s what the Sinai covenant achieved: a people rescued from slavery became the first nation on earth to live under God’s reign, and the covenant that was celebrated with a meal (Exodus 24:7-11).

How did the new covenant establish God’s reign in Christ? What is it we’re proclaiming in this meal?

This podcast (27 minutes, from Riverview Joondalup 21 November 2021) is a mediation on a text we often hear read at Communion but rarely consider in detail.

Open 1 Corinthians 11:23–26.
