When I do not find a passage in Scripture that denies that the body of Christ is present in the Supper or interprets the words of the Supper in a different way than they stand, I do not have a sufficiently strong reason to teach a new idea, especially one that arouses so great a scandal and one that i know cannot be preferred if we do not have clear and definite proof from Scripture. (Philipp Melanchthon, quoted in Chemnitz, ‘The Lord’s Supper’ (CPH, 1979), 89)
