The LORD's Supper pt.4 -History and Faith (SBS1-8(2018) ()JS LOWTHER, April 23, 2018
Part of the The LORD's Supper series, preached at a Sabbath service
Mat 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Christ's rebuke, time and again, regardless of the subject of rebuke was not for the adherence to His Father's Law by his rebuke was for the implementation of man made doctrine which was followed in the stead of God's Law Which is the very voice of Jesu the Christ as the Word of God; in this way the Paschal Sacrament with it's lawful observance of unleavened bread is no different, and in such a way the church is being called by the Scriptures Alone back to the preserved Faith of their Father's, Holy Faith, Sanctified by the Word of God and defensible by it's inspired nature and able to prove void the traditions of men in the wake of their lack of evidence.
Let us consider the earliest evidence of this Controversy, a controversy refereed to as the Paschal Controversy or the Easter Controversy. There are only few places to go in order to find information this old, and surprising as it may be, this information was even preserved by those who disregarded the observance them selves.
Evidence of this observance from those who knew the disciples of Christ, Early Christians taught by Apostles who's words are not recorded in Scripture but in the pages of history.
Setting the Stage
Eusebius Ecclesiastical History Vol 5
Chapter 23. The Question then agitated concerning the Passover.
1. A question of no small importance arose at that time. For the parishes of all Asia, as from an older tradition, held that the fourteenth day of the moon, on which day the Jews were commanded to sacrifice the lamb, should be observed as the feast of the Saviour's passover.
