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.
