Communion (religion)

The bond uniting Christians as individuals and groups with each other and with Jesus is described as communion.

Origin

The term is derived from Latin communio (sharing in common).[1]

This basic meaning of the word predates its Christian uses. In Ancient Greek, κοινωνία could apply to a business partnership, to fellowship of life in marriage, to a spiritual relationship with divinity, to comradely fellowship between friends, to a community or society.[2]
