The Passover in Communion. Passover as well as Holy Communion implies reconciliation with God; reconciliation linked with a determining historical event and communion with God and his believers. These are the essential and decisive elements. Holy Communion is more comprehensive than Passover and announces that Christ establishes the new covenant. It implies forgiveness of sins and restoration of the relation with God in accordance with his commandments. This means life out of Christ; life in which his body is the believers’ bread and wine, their daily nourishment. In Holy Communion Christ calls all believers to a battle against the enemy within themselves, and therefore, to earnest self-examination and conversion. He requires that He himself, in faith, should be appropriated as an expiatory and life-giving gift Holy Communion stresses that communion with Christ and those who believe in Him is dominant in the lives of believers. It implies a life dominated by the expectation of the Advent of Christ.
