This rare work by Thomas Watson is a gem! The Lord’s Supper is one of the most misunderstood “mysteries” in the Bible. Watson, simply yet powerfully, explains the holy Eucharist (the holy means of thanksgiving) that Christians have in relationship to Christ’s work and death.

Thomas Watson (1620-1686) was one of the most highly esteemed nonconformist Puritans of his day, as well as being an extremely popular preacher for today’s Reformed and Christian audience via his works. Most of Thomas Watson’s works are in print. They are filled with sound doctrine, practical wisdom, and heart-searching application. He is one of the most well-known and quoted Puritans.
This work is a study of the virtue of Christ’s blood seen in the Lord’s Supper. The Lord’s Supper is the eyeglass that we use to see the power of Christ’s work. Watson uses Matthew 26:26-28 as his primary text, “And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is My body. And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them saying, Drink ye all of it; for this is My blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” He covers the seven supernatural virtues seen in Christ’s blood and work; how Christians should prepare for the Lord’s Supper; six differences between a sincere faith and a hypocritical faith, and finally, six signs of a great faith.
