  32. 37. 4. The Lord’s Supper <ul><li>John 13… 21 After saying these things, Jesus was troubled in his spirit, and testified, “Truly, truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.” 22 The disciples looked at one another, uncertain of whom he spoke. 23 One of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was reclining at table close to Jesus, [5] </li></ul>
  33. 38. 4. The Lord’s Supper <ul><li>24 so Simon Peter motioned to him to ask Jesus [6] of whom he was speaking. 25 So that disciple, leaning back against Jesus, said to him, “Lord, who is it?” 26 Jesus answered, “It is he to whom I will give this morsel of bread when I have dipped it.” So when he had dipped the morsel, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot </li></ul>
  34. 39. 4. The Lord’s Supper <ul><li>27 Then after he had taken the morsel, Satan entered into him. Jesus said to him, “What you are going to do, do quickly.” 28 Now no one at the table knew why he said this to him. </li></ul>
  35. 40. 4. The Lord’s Supper <ul><li>29 Some thought that, because Judas had the moneybag, Jesus was telling him, “Buy what we need for the feast,” or that he should give something to the poor. 30 So, after receiving the morsel of bread, he immediately went out. And it was night. </li></ul>
  36. 41. 4. The Lord’s Supper <ul><li>1 Cor. 11… 27 Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. </li></ul>

  38. 43. The Parable of the Weeds <ul><li>Matt 13… 24 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, 25 but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds </li></ul>
  39. 44. The Parable of the Weeds <ul><li>[3] among the wheat and went away. 26 So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. 27 And the servants [4] of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does </li></ul>
  40. 45. The Parable of the Weeds <ul><li>it have weeds?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ So the servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. </li></ul>
  41. 46. The Parable of the Weeds <ul><li>30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.’” </li></ul>
  42. 47. 5. Bread and Salvation <ul><li>John 12… 24 Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 25 Whoever loves his life loses it, </li></ul>
  43. 48. 5. Bread and Salvation <ul><li>and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26 If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him. </li></ul>
  44. 49. In Closing… <ul><li>All the parallels point to How we view God’s provision for us </li></ul><ul><li>Bread represents the simplest form of provision </li></ul><ul><li>If we can’t depend upon God for bread, then how can we depend upon him for salvation? </li></ul>
