Richard Baxter once wrote “Nowhere is God so near to man as in Jesus Christ; and nowhere is Christ so familiarly represented to us, as in this holy sacrament.”
The night before Jesus died, he not only instituted the ordinance of the Lord’s table, he interpreted the Passover and all of God’s redemptive activity in history.
The Passover was the story of the exodus, but Jesus was pointing to a greater exodus, one where his people are freed from the kingdom of darkness.
And the Lords table became a reminder of Christ’s promise to abide with us and to redeem us.
