For this Sunday’s teaching, we are not only going to continue talking about “Jesus, the Original Punk”, we’re going to be reading about him from the original punk gospel – Luke, specifically the Parable of the Feast (Luke 14:16b-23). Reading this parable confronts us with loads of questions:
Why are the guests invited twice?
Who is the host, and who are the invitees?
Why do only three of the invitees excuse themselves, but not one of the “many” invited show up?
What does it mean when the slave is sent by the host to invite those in the wider streets, squares, narrow streets, and alleys (Lk 14:21)?
And then those in the roads and country lanes or hedges as well?
The most important questions of all, how does this parable help us understand the Kingdom of God, and what does it mean for us today?
Come and join us on Sunday at Alpine to delve deeper into this feast and find out.
