Albert Schweitzer's first published work in biblical studies was a two-part investigation of The Lord's Supper in Connection with the Life of Jesus and the History of the Primitive Christianity. The second part of that study appeared in English in 1914 (The Mystery of the Kingdom of God: The Secret of Jesus' Messiahship and Passion). The present translation is the first English rendering of the initial part of Schweitzer's penetrating and critical study of the Lord's Supper. In this often overlooked but crucial part of his study, Schweitzer showed that the problem of the Lord's Supper is fundamentally related to the life of Jesus and must be reckoned with in any Leben-Jesu attempt. The significance for research is clear. In his interpretive introduction, Professor John Reumann (Lutheran Theological Seminary, Philadelphia) strongly argues that Schweitzer's The Problem of the Lord's Supper is the matrix for Schweitzer's most influential study-The Quest of the Historical Jesus. This is must-reading for students of the life of Jesus. Uniform Title: Abendmahlsproblem auf Grund der wissenschaftlichen Forschung des 19. Jahrhunderts und der historischen Berichte.
