Food from Heaven: The Eucharist in scripture by Jeanne Kun

The third in the popular Keys to the Bible series from The Word Among Us, Food from Heaven will help readers navigate through the Bible to understand and appreciatethe foundation of eucharistic worship. Among the texts studied are Old Testament realities that anticipate the Eucharist—the manna in the desert and the sealing of the Mosaic covenant with a blood sacrifice—along with gospel accounts of Jesus’ bread of life discourse, the Last Supper, Jesus’ crucifixion and death, and the breaking of the bread with the two wayfarers in Emmaus. Each session includes the full Scripture text, a short commentary, and questions for reflection and discussion. “In the Spotlight” sections are especially helpful to Catholics, featuring historical and cultural details, explanations of Greek words, and quotes from church fathers, the catechism, and contemporary Catholic writers.   About the author:  Jeanne Kun is currently a staff writer for The Word Among Us. For the past twenty years, her articles on prayer and the Scriptural life, reflections on Scripture, poetry, and Bible study materials have appeared in many Catholic periodicals including The Word Among Us magazine, New Covenant, Faith and Renewal, and God's Word Today.
