Question 78

Do then the bread and wine become the very body and blood of Christ?

Not at all:228228    Matt. 26:29. but as the water in baptism is not changed into the blood of Christ, neither is the washing away of sin itself, being only the sign and confirmation thereof appointed of God;229229    Eph. 5:26; Tit. 3:5. so the bread in the Lord's supper is not changed into the very body of Christ;230230    Mark 14:24; 1 Cor. 10:16, 17, 26–28. though agreeably to the nature and properties of sacraments,231231    Gen. 17:10, 11, 14, 19; Exod. 12:11, 13, 27, 43, 48; Exod. 13:9; 1 Pet. 3:21; 1 Cor. 10:1–4. it is called the body of Christ Jesus.
