The Two Great Feasts of Jesus


Riverside 1999

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Almost every Christian is familiar with the account of Christ’s miracle of feeding the multitude but few really understand the sermon of Christ which follows this miracle of physical provision. In the sermon, Christ claims that the eating of His flesh and the drinking of His blood are the real spiritual nourishment so desperately needed by every one of us. The multitude that heard the sermon did not understand, but rejected Christ that day, because they wanted physical food and not nourishment for the soul. They heard Christ’s words, but failed to appropriate them, just as many today hear the message of Life, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but fall short of salvation because they fail to receive it by faith.

To eat the flesh and drink the blood of Christ is to hear His words and to appropriate (receive) them by faith. These are wonderful truths! Receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior, and then walking with Him everyday involves such intimate identification with the person and words of Christ that He compares it to consuming His body and drinking His blood. The book’s great insight given to us in concise form will make it a valuable asset in any missionary library. The student, teacher, or minister will find this book a valuable guide for study and meditation.
