Abstract

This paper does not propose to defend the use of the term "celestial element." The debate which has grown up around the Arnoldshain Theses shows us that we ought not stake the Lutheran or New Testament theology of the Sacrament of the Altar on the use of this term. And yet, it is a good term, for it takes us immediately to the heart of that which separates the Lutheran from the Reformed tradition. Do we only receive bread and wine in the Sacrament, or do we receive something more? This "something" is the "celestial element."
