Break the Holy Bread, Master: A Theology of Communion Bread

   
Sergei Sveshnikov

“Bread has played a role of enormous importance in the lives and cultures of many people throughout the history of humanity. More specifically, bread continues to play a role of profound economic, cultural, and religious significance throughout much of the Western world. From a staple food consumed at many meals to a work of art, and from a host that may change its substance to become Christ’s body to the cause of many riots—bread has served as a source of physical survival, spiritual nourishment, and bloody quarrels. [...]And within the Christian Church, bread has been a symbol of both unity and schism. During the time of Christ’s earthly ministry His disciples often gathered for common meals whose inclusiveness may have been unparalleled in contemporary society—a practice that apparently continued for quite some time after Christ’s ascension. Bread is mentioned in connection with Christ’s healing[...]and nourishing the physical bodies of the faithful[...], as well as with His act of granting salvation to the world[...]. Finally, Christ refers to Himself as the ‘bread of life’[...], and it is this ‘bread’ that unites those who partake of it into one body[...].”
