Q[81] Of The Use Which Christ Made Of This Sacrament At Its Institution
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]  

We have now to consider the use which Christ made of this sacrament at its institution; under which heading there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether Christ received His own body and blood?

A[2] Whether He gave it to Judas?

A[3] What kind of body did He receive or give, namely, was it passible or impassible?

A[4] What would have been the condition of Christ's body under this sacrament, if it had been reserved or consecrated during the three days He lay dead?
