    Abstract

    It is well known that in the sacramental theology of Luther and the reformers, the words of institution play a central role in the consecration of the elements. The words of Christ, and not our speaking, ensure that Christ's body and blood are given in, with and under bread and wine. This theological conviction finds expression throughout Luther's sacramental, catechetical and liturgical writings, and is a view that is reiterated by his colleagues, confirmed by the Confessions, and reinforced by Lutheran theologians of every generation.
