What happens when Jesus comes to dinner? In the gospel of Luke we see that a meal was often the setting that Jesus chose for the most surprising and powerful conversations about his mission. As we watch Jesus in conversation the gospel gets clearer and God’s kingdom is set before us like a feast to enjoy and look forward to.
This summer we will join Jesus around the table as we walk through 11 of these meals with Jesus and learn what they proclaim to us about the gospel and the Kingdom of God.
