A Meal with Jesus
Discovering grace, community & mission around the table
by Tim Chester
About A Meal with Jesus
Meals have always been important across societies and cultures – a time for friends and families to come together. An important part of relationships, meals are vital to our social health. Or as author Tim Chester puts it, Food connects.
Meals are also an important part of Christian fellowship and mission. Luke’s Gospel is full of stories of Jesus at meals. Tim shows how these meals enact grace, community, hope, mission, salvation and promise.
Moving from New Testament times to today, the author applies biblical truth to challenge our contemporary understanding nom of hospitality. He urges sacrificial giving and loving around the table, helping readers consider how meals can be about serving others and sharing the grace of Christ.
