TMST 7068 The Eucharist: re-creating a new world in memory of Christ (Spring: 3 )
The Eucharist is the liturgical enactment of the saving mystery of Christ. It is a ritual that can transform the community that celebrates it to be a source of life in a broken and fragile world. This course examines the biblical roots of the Eucharist in the meal traditions of the Jewish people, in the table fellowship of Jesus, in his death on the Cross. It looks at how the Christian community has variously responded to the Lord's command to "do this in memory of me" until he comes again. The impact of historical controversies of contemporary debate is discussed.
