Holy Communion in the Old Testament

Ghoti Ichthus

Pray so they do not serve alone. Ephesians 6:10-20
Learned something in Bible Study yesterday. Melchizedek served Abraham Holy Communion :smile

17 And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale.
18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
Genesis 14:18-19, KJV

17 After his return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, the king of Sodom went out to meet him at the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King's Valley). 18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. (He was priest of God Most High.) 19 And he blessed him and said,
“Blessed be Abram by God Most High,
Possessor[b] of heaven and earth;
20 and blessed be God Most High,
who has delivered your enemies into your hand!”
And Abram gave him a tenth of everything.
Genesis 14:17-20, ESV

Also learned a couple weeks ago that some Lutheran churches use white wine instead of red wine because the Catholic church said the wine had to be red and Martin Luther searched the Scriptures and found no such requirement, so used white wine to make a point against the RCC unBibical requirement

Most Lutherans, like other Christians, use red wine (or grape juice) because it looks more like blood. Of course, there are some churches that, when using individual little cups, have wine of one color or the other on the outside, and the cups in the middle are grape juice of the other color for easy differentiation. It's all grapes, fermented or not, though.
