Weekly Breaking of Bread

Although there is no express command that we should observe the feast of Breaking of Bread every week, all the information in the Scriptures at least suggests such periodical observance thereof.

Paul, in writing to the Corinthians, says

“I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread”, etc. (1 Cor. xi. 23).

In Acts xx. 7, we read of Paul and the Disciples at Troas coming

“together to break bread upon the first day of the week”.

And, in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, he again refers to the “first day of the week” as one for meeting together (1 Cor. xvi. 2).

*

“ Upon the first day of the week let each one of you lay by him in store, as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come.” (1Co 16:2 ASV)
