Is the Lord’s Supper a shadow of things to come?
In other words, does it portray His heavenly feast in which we shall participate with Himself?
We do not think so. The Bible rather limits it to the present—”ye proclaim the Lord’s death, till He come” (1 Corinthians 11:26). In 1 Corinthians 5: we read the words, “therefore let us keep the feast,” but this follows the statement, “Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us,” and the reference would be to the feast of unleavened bread which followed the passover, to which should correspond the holy life which befits the child of God.
