Samuel Adams :: How do we interpret the language ‘eat my flesh and drink my blood’? (John 6:52-59)

  • “The church has always interpreted this text in terms of the Eucharistic table and the Eucharistic meal,” teaches Samuel Adams, PhD, Mennonite Pastor, Assistant Professor of Theology & Social Justice and Director of Graduate Studies at Kilns College. This is a reference to communion within the church as well as deep spiritual truths regarding the purpose of the church and how it is the body of Christ. “It’s a very physical part of our tradition.”
