...the Body and Blood of Christ are truly present, and are distributed to those who eat the Supper of the Lord and they (Lutherans) reject those that teach otherwise.
It is the Lutheran belief that this article of faith was shared by the early Church.
Of course the Early Church believed in the Real Presence. It is good that the Lutherans acknowledge that. Like I said in 25, it is the totality of Lutheran beliefs that departs from the patristic teaching.
