Luke Chapter 14 Parable of the Great Supper, Hating Mother and Father

Now Jesus raised the conversation to a higher level. Out of all who heard him in the Pharisee’s house, only one appreciated Jesus’ words and said, “Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.” Jesus immediately gave the Parable of the Great Supper, which is a reminder of the principle “many [shall] be called, but few chosen” (Matt. 20:16).

When bidden to enter the race for the high calling, one after another made excuses along temporal lines, so the master of the house told his servant to go out into the city streets and call the poor, the maimed, the halt, and the blind. The “city” was the Jewish nation. When not enough Jews accepted, the master sent his servant into the highways and byways—that is, to Gentile lands—with the instruction “Compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” “Compel” means to urge, to earnestly plead. None of those who were invited and refused will taste of Jesus’ “supper.” Only a few Jews responded, so the call went to Gentiles.

The Holy Bible Living Word

This discourse was given at a convention and touches on the “Eyes of the Lord.” God knows things about us and our lives and what is going on in the whole world. The scriptures says that His eyes are on the righteous and His ears open to their cry and that they are on those that fear Him and hope in His mercy. God is watching out for us.

The discourse also follows 4 examples in Jesus’ life where he knew those that were coming to him. The Lord revealed to Jesus circumstances of their lives so that when he mentioned it, they knew it was of God. Take for example: Nathaniel, Zacchaeus, Samaritan woman, and Nicodemus. It only took a word, or in Nicodemus’ instance the seeing of Jesus lifted up like the serpent as he predicted to convince them Jesus was the Messiah. We are told in Zechariah about another miraculous conversion of the Nation of Israel after Jacob’s Trouble.
