The Lord is good (1 Pet 2:3)


You have tasted

That the Lord

Is good.”

εἰ ἐγεύσασθε ὅτι χρηστὸς ὁ Κύριος.

This author said, “Indeed (εἰ), you have tasted (ἐγεύσασθε) that (ὅτι) the Lord (ὁ Κύριος) is good (χρηστὸς).”  This author cited Psalm 34:9, “O taste and see!  God is good!  Happy are those who take refuge in him!” This showed that the Lord was tasty and good.  Perhaps this was an allusion to the Communion Eucharistic bread received at Baptism.  When you had the Lord, all was good.  Once you had a taste of goodness, you would want more.  Have you tasted the Eucharist as good?
