Jesus has been invited to share a meal at a Pharisee’s house. From the outset you can feel the tension as we are told that they were “watching him closely.” Jesus proceeds to give them a lesson in what appears to be table etiquette. But a closer examination reveals that this is more about who we, as the people of God, are called to be and what Christian hospitality is all about – welcoming the least, the last, and the lost.
