An Open Table

Jesus declares how open this Table is. Many will come from outside Israel, to the table first offered to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Anyone can come, when they come with faith in Christ, when they believe that He has authority to heal at a distance, to command the death of those who oppose Him, to pay the blood-guilt price for our redemption from sin. Those found without this faith will be cast out, even if they were raised at this Table. They will drink the wine of God’s wrath.

But many will sit down with Abraham in the kingdom, and drink God’s blessing and joy. This meal is a picture of that coming glory. Christ’s full kingdom come, His will done, on earth, like in heaven. It is His kingdom, His power, His glory.
