While Jesus dined at the house of a prominent Pharisee, He told a parable about a banquet—one with a highly unconventional guest list.

As Alistair Begg emphasizes, Jesus’ invitation is open to all people, and those who belong to Him have a mission to bring others to His table.
15When one of those who reclined at table with him heard these things, he said to him, “Blessed is everyone who will eat bread in the kingdom of God!”
