Zwingli: When Baptism Means Drowning

Pastor Lutzer | March 4, 2007

Summary

Ulrich Zwingli passionately defended that the elements of the Lord’s Supper were symbolic of Jesus’ body and blood. 

Selected highlights from this sermon

Ulrich Zwingli led the church of Zurich and preached directly from the Bible—the people loved it.

Though his position on infant baptism was poor, he did seek to recover a biblical understanding of communion: that the bread and the wine are symbols of Christ’s body and blood, not literally Christ’s body and blood.
