An Example Of Proto-Transubstantiation?

  • Discussion:
          -This excerpt regarding King David's use of a metaphor by Dr. Joe Mizzi is rather insightful in light of how Roman Catholics adamantly insist that the words uttered by our Lord Jesus Christ during the Last Supper ("this is my blood") must be taken literally:

          "In a narrative in the book of Samuel, three brave men put their lives at risk to bring fresh water for their master, David, from a well on the side of the Philistines. But when David found out about this, he would not drink it. He said, “Far be it from me, O LORD, that I should do this! Is this not the blood of the men who went in jeopardy of their lives?” (2 Samuel 23:17). Is not this the blood of the men? He called the water in the vessel “blood,” not because it was transubstantiated, but simply because it represented the danger to the lives of those three men who brought it."

  1. That's a very good point!! It wouldn't surprise me if God included those verses in scripture just to refute the doctrine of Transubstantiation.
