Bible story: Jesus at a Pharisee's house

Creative activities based on the Bible story of Jesus at a Pharisee's house

Luke 14:1-14 tells the story of Jesus attending a meal at the home of a Pharisee on the Sabbath. While there, he heals a man with dropsy and engages in a debate with the Pharisees about whether it is lawful to heal on the Sabbath.

Jesus then tells a parable about a man who hosts a banquet and invites his friends and family, but they all make excuses not to come. Instead, the man invites the poor, the crippled, the blind, and the lame to the feast, and they gladly accept.

The passage highlights Jesus' compassion for the sick and marginalized, as well as his criticism of the self-righteous attitudes of the religious leaders. It also emphasizes the importance of humility and the virtue of welcoming and serving others.
