THE LORD'S SUPPER AND THE SUNDAY ASSEMBLY, Dan Mayfield

When the Church assembled for worship determined the frequency of partaking of it. Acts 20:6,7 shows that the Christians assembled for the purpose of remembering the Lord's Death by partaking of the Lord's Supper. 1 Cor 11 shows that the "as often as you partake" was when the Christiansassembled together. The text in 1 Cor 11 does not suggest it was done with a common meal. The common meal was done at home. The Lord's Supper was done when they came together and that text says it 4 times (yellow). As in on the first day of the week. And the prevalence of unleavened bread hasn't got a thing to do with proving how often they partook. The argument is not that it can't be done every day because there's no unleavened bread. There just is nothing to suggest it (green) was done apart from the congregational assembly. The Acts 2:46 was a common meal and not the Lord's Supper. This was the first day of the Week. The Lord's Death was remembered on the Lord's Day by partaking of the Lord's Supper.
