“The most striking and challenging feature of Paul’s theology of the Lord’s Supper is is undoubtedly his further understanding of the church as also the body of Christ. In particular, Paul’s language here has provided the basis for all subsequent theological reflection on the correlation between sacrament and church, between the one body which is the bread and the one body which is the church. It is all the more important, then, that we pay close attention to the language which Paul used.” —James D.G. Dunn on 1 Cor. 10:16-17, The Theology of Paul the Apostle, p. 615.
