Quick Reference

Sometimes ‘cup’ is used as a metaphor, as in Ps. 11: 6, Matt. 26: 39; when Jesus asked James and John if they could share his cup (Matt. 20: 22), he was referring to experiences of suffering. In Paul's account of the Last Supper participation in the cup (1 Cor. 11: 26) is explained as a proclamation of the death of the Lord.
