ABOUT THE COURSE
Exploration of the Jewish context surrounding the Christian Eucharist. Jesus lived in an ancient Jewish context. One must remember this Jewish background when dealing with the meaning and message of the Christian Eucharist. The Bread of the Presence in the Old Testament opens up a whole new perspective on the real presence in the Christian Eucharistic message.
