Confession of Faith
Chapter 29: Of the Lord's Supper

6. That doctrine which maintains a change of the substance of bread and wine, into the substance of Christ's body and blood (commonly called transubstantiation) by consecration of a priest, or by any other way, is repugnant, not to Scripture alone, but even to common sense, and reason; overthroweth the nature of the sacrament, and hath been, and is, the cause of manifold superstitions; yea, of gross idolatries.1

  1. Acts 3:21

    whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago.

    1 Corinthians 11:24-26

    and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.

    Luke 24:6

    He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee,

    Luke 24:39

    See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” (ESV)
