To focus your mind on the significance of the Lord’s Supper,
remember the number:

FIVE–the number of times our Lord’s body was pierced.

  • Four nails pierced his hands and feet to pin Him to the cross.
  • The sword pierced His side. (John 19:34)

FOUR–the number of parts into which His clothes were divided. (John 19:23-24)

  • The division of His clothes and the casting of lots for His robe were prophesied. (Psalm 22:16-18)
  • All that happened to Him was planned from the beginning. (I Pet. 1:20, Rev. 13:8)

THREE–the number of crosses.

  • One man dying for sins, one repentantly dying to sin, and one rebelliously dying in sin. (Luke 23:39)
  • Today, we are like one of the “other two.”

TWO–the number of eternal destinies.

  • Heaven and hell. (John 5:28-29)
  • The worse destiny would have been ours without the events we remember during the Lord’s Supper. (Rom. 3:23)

ONE–the uniqueness of the gift that the Father gave.

  • He gave His “only begotten” Son. (John 3:16, I John 4:10, Rom. 8:32)
  • He gave something precious to Him.

    Where do you find that the Romans used a nail for each of Jesus’ feet? I thought the Romans put both of his feet together and used one nail. I would be interested in hearing from you on this. I am a member of the Pritchard ave. Church of Christ in Lisbon , Ohio. Thank you for your time.
    sincerely terry joy
