New City Catechism for Jan. 27 | Question 47

Since the start of 2018, our church family at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, has read and recited a question from The New City Catechism nearly every Sunday. For Sunday, January 27, 2019, we’ll read and recite Question 47.

Catechism Question 47
Does the Lord’s Supper add anything to Christ’s atoning work?

Adults’ Answer 47
No, Christ died once for all. The Lord’s Supper is a covenant meal celebrating Christ’s atoning work; as it is also a means of strengthening our faith as we look to him, and a foretaste of the future feast. But those who take part with unrepentant hearts eat and drink judgment on themselves.

Children’s Answer 47
No, Christ died once for all.
