“And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him.”
King James Version (KJV)
Lu 14:1 Teaching in Parables SUMMARY OF LUKE 14: Healing on the Sabbath. The Chief Seats at a Wedding Feast. The Rule for Inviting Guests. The Parable of the Great Supper and the Excuses. Bearing the Cross Essential to Discipleship. Counting the Cost. One of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath. In despite of the rigid ideas of the Pharisees concerning work on the Sabbath, it was made a day of feasting. "Meet the Sabbath with a lively hunger; let thy table be covered with fish, flesh, and generous wine" is a rabbinical precept. They watched him. Though pretending hospitality, on the watch for grounds of accusation.
