Lutheran and Reformed on Lord’s Supper

Lutherans believe in a sacramental union between the blood of Christ and the wine. Reformed believe in a sacramental union between the sign and the thing signified (promises of the covenant).

Lutherans:  Wine —> sacramental union —> Blood of Christ

Reformed:  Wine —> sacramental union —> New Covenant in my blood
