consubstantiation

Definition: consubstantiation
The doctrine according to which the substances of both the body and blood of Christ and of the bread and wine coexist in the eucharistic elements after being consecrated. The concept is attributed to Luther, who was opposed to the doctrine of transubstantiation. Luther illustrated the concept with the analogy of an iron in a fire: the fire and the iron are united in the red-hot iron yet both are still present.
