Jesus and the Table

Jesus chose to eat with a man who repressed God’s chosen people by stealing their wellbeing and subjecting them to poverty. Blessed are the poor in spirit. There was no one more impoverished than Zaccheus. He was a hated and rejected man. Yet, Jesus saw him, called him by name, and shared a meal with him.

The gospel is for everyone. The ministry of Jesus was one of eating and drinking. He sees people no one else cares to see, and he shares a table with people no one else dares to come near. This is the nature of God’s upside-down kingdom.
