A-Z: General definitions: Flesh

Definition

Physical rather than spiritual being. The bread of Holy Communion symbolises the flesh / body of Jesus. When Eve was created out of Adam's rib it was described as 'flesh of my flesh' ('bone of my bone') - hence the idea that a married couple are 'one flesh' (one entity). (Genesis 2:23-24)
