John Mark Hicks, Come to the Table: Revisioning the Lord’s Supper , explores themes of the Eucharist in such a fresh manner.
Those who come to the Table are confessing that Jesus is the Lord and that they are in submission to Jesus the Lord. We cannot sit at the table of the Lord and of demons; there’s a religious commitment at work in the Table.
The Table both consummates the week and sets the tone for the week: it speaks of where we find our life and our sustenance.
The Table is a kingdom Table, and in this kingdom we are disciples and Jesus is the King. So, the Table is designed to embody that kingship of Christ.
