  • The sacraments can be supported by scripture. Here's what I have saved off hand that shows this:
    1. Baptism: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.' [Mt. 28:19]p>

    2. Confirmation: "Then Peter and John laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit." [Acts 8:17]

    3. Holy Eucharist: "While they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, 'Take, eat; this is my body.'" [Mt. 26:26]

    4. Penance: "If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained." [Jn. 20:23]

    5. Anointing of the Sick: "Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise." [Jas. 5:14] continued below:

  • 6. Holy Orders: ""Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying 'This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.'" [Lk. 22:19]

    "But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent?" [Rom. 10:14-5]

    "So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard come through the word of Christ." [Rom. 10:17]

    7. Matrimony: "So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate." [Mt. 19:6]

  • What you have so far is very good, but I like to refer people (evangelists knocking on my front door) to John chapter 6 (when talking about the Real Presence in the Eucharist) where he says my blood is true drink and my flesh is true food.

  • The New Catholic Answer Bible that I have has a lot of Bible Q&A inserts. One of them says...in Christs miracle at the wedding in Cana (Jn 2:1-11), the Church sees his proclamation that the ancient institution of matrimony (Gn 1:26-31; 2:18-25) has been raised to the level of a sacrament - an efficacious sign of God's presence. In Eph 5:32, St Paul uses the word "mystery" to refer to marriage, which in the Greek is also the word for "sacrament".

    And references to the sacraments:
    Baptism: Mt 28:19, Mk 16:16, Jn 3:5, Acts 2:38; Acts 16:15, Acts 16:33, Acts 18:8, Acts 22:16, Rom 6:3-4, 1 Cor 1:16, I Cor 6:11, Col 2:11-13, Titus 3:5, 1 Pt 3:21
    Confirmation: Wis 9:17, Acts 8:14-19, Acts 13:3, Acts 19:1-6, 2 Cor 1:21-22, Eph 1:13, Heb 6:1-2
    Eucharist: Mt 26:26-28, Mk 14:22-24, Lk 22:19-20, Jn 6:47-66, 1 Cor 10:16, I cor 11:23-30
    Reconciliation: Ex 32:20, Lv 19:20-22, Nm 5:6-7, Nm 14:19-23, Nm 17:11-13, Mt 16-19, Mt 18:18

  • Reconciliation continued: Lk 15:18-19, Jn 20:23, Acts 19:18, 1 Cor 5:3-5 w/ 2 Cor 2:6-11, 2 Cor 5:18-20, Jas 5:16, 1 Jn 1:8-9
    Annointing of the Sick: Mk 6:5, Mk 6:12-13, Lk 13:13, Acts 9:17-18, 1 Cor 12:9, 1 Cor 12:30, Jas 5:14-15
    Holy Orders: Mt 18:18, Lk 10:16, Lk 22:19, Lk 24:47, Jn 13:20, Jn 15:5, Acts 6:6, Acts 15:2-6, Act 20:17, Act 20:28, Act 21:18, 1 Tm 3:1-7, 1 Tim 4:14, 1 Tm 5:17, 2 Tm 1:6, Ti 1:5-9, 1 Pt 5:1
    Matrimony: Mt 5:31-32, Mt 19:1-9, Mk 10:2-12, Lk 16:18, Rom 7:2-3, 1 Cor 7:1-24, 1 Cor 7:39, Heb 13:4, 1 Pt 3:1-9

    Whew! I hope I didn't make any typos =)

    And do you have a Catechism of the Catholic Church? Bcuz when it talks about sacraments, it usually refers to the bible verses.

    John 6:33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven.

    Jesus is the bread that came down from heaven.

    Jesus' flesh is real food and his blood is real drink (See John 6:55).

    Jesus tells us that HE is the bread. Jesus does not stress that the bread is Jesus. But, Jesus tells us..... Luke 22:19 And he took bread, gave thanks and and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me."

    You see, it is in remembrance. Jesus doesn't stress that the bread is life. Jesus tells us that HE is life.

  • HE is LIFE, but He says to do it in remembrance of me. ....so it could have been directed to only the people at the Last Supper...or to all the disciples...which now includes us, the followers of Jesus who live presently.
