Hebrews 13:1-8, 15-16 & Luke 14:1, 7-14

In Lukes Gospel Jesus is into meals, as in todays reading, where hes dinning at a Pharisees house. This isnt the first time hes accepted a dinner invitation from a Pharisee. Luke tells of two other occasions, both of which turned into social disasters. At one a woman scandalised the guests by washing Jesus feet, then anointing and kissing them. The other ended with Jesus giving a theological dressing down of the host and his friends. These episodes, not surprisingly, left some of the Pharisees feeling rather hostile towards Jesus, and it seems that Jesus had been invited to this meal so they could catch him out. Thats the implication of the opening verse, they were watching him closely.
