Hi,

I was just messing with the Bible Browser and noticed that the institution/miracle of the Eucharist at the Last Supper isn't listed under any filter that I tried, i.e., miracles, bread, wine, ... And if you filter by "last Supper", then there is no Miracle filter available.

It seems that it should at least be under the filter of "things:bread" and "agent:Jesus".

I'm thinking this is a pretty big miracle to leave out.

Mike

Not traipsing into theology per se, but some traditions see (only) a special meal, including some of the early writers. Not disagreeing with a miracle ID for differing users.

If I remember Scripture correctly He was there in the very room with them.  And that was a miracle.

Was He also in the bread and wine at that time or not until His disciples, and now we, join Him in the 'Meal' in remembrance?

Not all Christians believe that He is present in the bread and the wine but they all do believe that He is with them when they "join Him in the 'Meal' ".

Which is a currently occuring miracle whether it be in the Mass or just communion.  [[Lower case 'c' deliberate]]

And some folks don't see the Last Supper as a historical occurrence at all. Or the Resurrection.

And that would be some of his disciples (Mat 28).

Well, it's true that some don't see it as a miracle, ...but, for the most part, it was considered a miracle by all of the Christian world for the first 1500 years of Christianity and since then by the majority of Christians.  I think that warrants including it as a miracle in the Bible Browser.

Just to avoid misunderstanding, I don't care; just pointing out, it's not a universal concept. Just like Jesus walking through walls.
