The Who, What and How of God’s Rescue Plan for Humanity

Luke 14:1, 7-14

1On one occasion when Jesus was going to the house of a leader of the
Pharisees to eat a meal on the sabbath, they were watching him closely.

7When he noticed how the guests chose the places of honor, he told them a
parable. 8“When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not
sit down at the place of honor, in case someone more distinguished than you
has been invited by your host; 9and the host who invited both of you may come
and say to you, ‘Give this person your place,’ and then in disgrace you would
start to take the lowest place. 10But when you are invited, go and sit down at
the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he may say to you, ‘Friend,
move up higher’; then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at
the table with you. 11For all who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those
who humble themselves will be exalted.”

12He said also to the one who had invited him, “When you give a luncheon or
a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich
neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid.
13But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the
blind. 14And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will
be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”
