The rejected terminology was omitted. It was, "Jesus' body was directly there in spirit mode." In addition to our Symbols not speaking in this way there are Sacramentarians who would speak that way. Article VII of the Formula of Concord touches on this beginning at 3]. https://bookofconcord.org/formula-of-concord-epitome/article-vii/I don't understand what what part of what I wrote you object to. I have read Luther repeatedly on the topic because he was opposed to both the Catholic view and Calvin's view. Calvin's idea that Luther rejected was that Jesus' body stayed in heaven but that the Eucharist was as if Jesus was in the bread.
Luther wrote that Christ's body had a Spirit mode, like when it went through the door in John 20. Luther taught that when Christ said "This is my Body" and held up the bread, it was literally true, and that the substance of Christ's body is literally being held up. At the same time, Luther believed that the substance of bread remained. Physically it was bread.
Let's break my statement down.
- Luther taught that Jesus held up physical food, ie. physical bread. But Luther did not believe that Jesus' body was in physical form in the bread. - Luther did not believe that Jesus holding up physical food contradicted Jesus' body being in that bread. As a result, when Jesus held up the bread, Jesus was also holding up Jesus' body that was in that bread.
- Luther taught that "This is My body" was a literally true statement and was referring to Jesus' body.
- Luther taught that Jesus' body was in Spirit form in the Eucharist.
- He taught that the body was directly located in the bread, and not just stuck up in heaven like Calvin said.
Next, you quoted Augsburg on St. Cyril. I have also read Cyril's writings on the topic, and Yes, Cyril was in conflict with Luther's idea. Cyril's wrote that the Eucharist food no longer had the substance of bread, but rather that it only had the substance of Jesus' body. This is the Roman Catholic view. Pope Gelasius on the other hand in the 6th century taught that both substances were present- bread and Jesus' body. This was Luther's view.
Augsburg's complaint about "corporeally present" that you cited needs to be unpacked. When Augsburg complained about Cyril's idea of Christ being offered "corporeally", Augsburg meant the idea that Christ's body was physically or materially present like a normal living human body before it has died. Certainly Augsburg was not complaining that Christ's "corpus" or "body" was present, because Luther believed that Christ's body was literally present. Luther opposed Calvin because Calvin taught that Jesus' body was literally absent from the Eucharist and literally only in heaven.
I have access to much of what is contained in the WA. If you post the title of the work of Luther you are thinking of l will check it out.
The quote of Cyril was used affirmatively in the Apology.
I am not familiar with the site you posted.
