The Lord’s Supper

The Lord’s Supper of 1 Corinthians 11
in Saint Francis’ Letter to the Entire Order 
Noel Muscat OFM

In 1 Corinthians 11:17-34, Paul presents the oldest account of the Last Supper and the institution of the Eucharist. Written in Ephesus in 57 AD, 1 Corinthians is older than the Synoptic Gospels, and therefore provides us with the first historical account of what Paul calls “the Lord’s supper.”
