1 Corinthians 10:16-18 The Passion Translation (TPT)
16 For when we pray for the blessing of the communion cup, isn’t this our co-participation with the blood of Jesus?[a] And the bread that we distribute, isn’t this the bread of our co-participation with the body of Christ?[b] 17 For although we’re many, we become one loaf of bread and one body as we feast together[c] on one loaf.
18 Consider the people of Israel when they fell into idolatry. When they ate the sacrifices offered to the gods, weren’t they becoming communal participants in what was sacrificed?
