To Break Bread

Acts 20:7-11 records Paul’s visit to Troas. In this short section Luke writes of breaking bread twice, in verses 7 and 11. We would like to explore several questions here:

Are these two bread-breakings a reference to the same thing (namely, the Lord’s Supper or a common meal), or two different events (one the Lord’s Supper and the other a common meal)? Whatever your response please explain how you reached your conclusion.

Did the second bread-breaking occur on the first day of the week or the second day of the week? Again, please explain your conclusion.

What lessons, if any, can we learn from this text about the Lord’s Supper and/or the use of “break bread” in Scripture?

(Thanks to Jason S for suggesting this discussion)

    IMHO Jason S should not suggest any more topics.

    IMHO it was an excellent topic…..but we ran out of interest in the discussion blog as a whole by that point.
