The Image of the Great Banquet
The image of the Great Banquet comes from the New Testament book of Luke. Jesus tells of a master who prepared a great banquet and invited many guests, saying “Come, for everything is now ready.”Many had excuses and did not attend. Finally, many were brought who were poor, crippled, blind and lame. The result of the master’s invitation was to feast and fellowship at a banquet given by God.
