The Welcome: Luke 7:36-50
From Series: "The Feast - Meals with Jesus"
Luke’s Gospel repeatedly mentions meals Jesus had with all kinds of people in different circumstances - more than the other gospels, but none of these meals were incidental. In Luke's Gospel, he’s either going to a meal, at a meal, or coming from a meal. These meals with tax collectors or with Pharisees were visible demonstrations of what his Kingdom is like. All of this is a foretaste of the future meal we’re made for (Isaiah 25:6-8), and every meal Jesus ate with people was him acting out his invitation to this great feast to come. We can’t cover every meal in five weeks, but we’re picking up five to get a flavour!
