Instead of being simply a way of interpreting prophecy, millennialism now is seen to be a determining factor in any system of theology.

Another relevant Scripture is 1 Cor.which warns the Corinthians that they cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too. In this it acts as a text clarifying the spiritual, mystical character of the celebration.

And two other probable references to celebration of the Lord’s Supper are Acts and TH The Acts of the Apostles: 3: The book of Acts begins with Jesus commissioning His disciples to continue His ministry through the power of the Holy Spirit, from Jerusalem, where the church was born, to Rome, the capital of the Gentile world.

G E Wright's book The OT Against Its Environment () is typical, reflecting in part the concern of the Albright school. In he published, with R. Fuller, The Book of the Acts of God, setting forth a salvation historical account of the Scriptures for lay students.
