Blessing, Cup Of

BLESSING, CUP OF [ISBE]

BLESSING, CUP OF - (to poterion tes eulogias, "the consecrated cup," 1 Cor 10:16): A technical term from the Jewish liturgy transferred to the Lord's Supper, and signifying the cup of wine upon which a blessing was pronounced. The suggestion that it carries with it a higher significance, as a cup that brings blessing, is not without force. The succeeding words, "we bless," are equivalent to "for which we give thanks." It was consecrated by thanksgiving and prayer.

See also CUP.
