1. Jesus rejects what we believe is most necessary and instead points us to his pain, suffering, death, and self-sacrifice.
  2. People do not seek the gospel because they want to, but because God’s Word drives them to it.
  3. When we proclaim Jesus' death we are, at the same time, preaching that this cup from which we drink is the cup of salvation for all who believe and receive it.
  4. By the blood of the Lamb God's people are given salvation and comfort. We're rescued from hopelessness.
  5. There was Gospel, and blood, and he killed a guy with a trident. Gillespie and Riley continue hijacking their podcast to honor their spiritual father, Norman Nagel, this time on the Lord's Supper from his “The Spirit’s Gifts in the Confessions and in Corinth.”
  6. How does it... umm... how does it work? In this episode, Gillespie and Riley continue to read and discuss the Schwabach Articles. Baptism, the Lord’s Supper, Church, and all things churchy.
  7. He comes to fill our old, stony heart with the new wine of his forgiveness.

  10. But when we trust Jesus, then we close our eyes to it all and say, “Heavenly Father, I’m your child.
  11. Put to death by God's Word of Law, we are then raised to new life by God's Word of Gospel.
  12. But I remember that that’s how it ended. Words. Wine. Blood. A sudden halt to the conversation.
