Is the Mass really a Sacrifice? A Primer on the Mass

by Steve Ray on October 14, 2016

In 1 Corinthians 10 Paul compares three sacrifices, that of Israel, that of the pagans and the sacrifice of Christians. He speaks of the Table of the Lord which the Old Testament prophets explained as an altar of sacrifice (Malachi 1:7-12). Look at the chart below and see if Paul didn’t clearly view the Eucharist as a sacrifice offered on the altars (table of the Lord) by the gentile nations from east to west in the Church.
