Context Readings

The Parable Of The Great Banquet

12 And he said to the master of the house, When you give a feast, do not send for your friends and your brothers and your family or your neighbours who have wealth, for they may give a feast for you, and so you will get a reward. 13 But when you give a feast, send for the poor and the blind and those who are broken in body: 14 And you will have a blessing, because they will not be able to give you any payment, and you will get your reward when the upright come back from the dead.
