“In Remembrance of Me”

An Address to the Annual General Meeting of the Society by the Reverend John K S Reid, MA, BD, DD, Professor of Theology in the University of Leeds

Professor Reid examines whether a richer meaning of the phrase, ‘In Remembrance of Me’, is to be found in the Eucharistic rite. Under a series of sub-headings, he attempts to do just that:

delimitation of the field;
the element of remembrance in Passover;
the character of remembrance;
practical corollaries

He concludes by discussing the place of sacrifice in the Eucharist and asks whether the Eucharist is a memorial of Christ’s sacrifice or an offering of Christ or of his sacrifice, arguing that the matter is a restatement of one of the fundamental issues at the Reformation.
