“When you meet together
In one place,
It is not really
To eat the Lord’s supper.”
Συνερχομένων οὖν ὑμῶν ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ οὐκ ἔστιν κυριακὸν δεῖπνον φαγεῖν·
Paul said that when you meet together in one place (Συνερχομένων οὖν ὑμῶν ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ), it is not really to eat the Lord’s supper (οὐκ ἔστιν κυριακὸν δεῖπνον φαγεῖν). Paul pointed out that although they were meeting in one place, it really was not to eat the Lord’s Supper. They should be coming together in unity, not disunity. Paul seemed to chastise them. Should they be partaking in the Eucharistic Lord’s Supper under these conditions? Do you have disputes when you gather for the Lord’s Supper in your community church?
