Eucharist in The Early Church


“Do this in memory of me”

commanded Jesus as he instituted the Eucharist. How did the first disciples of Jesus carry this on their communities? What form did they follow in their celebrations? If Jewish meals provided a framework for imitation for the Last Supper of Jesus, which were they? The Acts of the Apostles give us some clue. They are:-

  1. From Jewish Meal to Christian Meal
  2. The First Mention of the Eucharist: Outside New Testament
  3. Eucharist and Didache
  4. Eucharist and Justin the Martyr
  5. Eucharist and The Apostolic Tradition
