Aan tafel saam met Jesus: eksegetiese riglyne vir prediking uit Lukas 14:1-24

S Joubert


Luke 14:1-24 is analysed within the framework of Jesus’ rejection of the social hierarchy of his day by eating with “unwelcome” table guests, such as sinners, the sick and the outcasts. Firstly, a brief description is offered of the nature of the Graeco-Roman symposium and Jewish public meals, as the possible conceptual backgrounds for the understanding of Luke 14. This is followed by a discussion of Jesus’ radical rejection of the principle of balanced reciprocity in Luke 14. Within the parameters of his new perspective on reality, where socio-religious outcasts take predominance, some guidelines are finally put on the table to serve as aids for sermons on this explosive text.
