THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE - Chapter 7 - Verse 36

Verse 36. One of the Pharisees. His name was Simon, Lu 7:10. Nothing more is known of him. It is not improbable, however, from what follows (Lu 7:40-47), that he had been healed by the Saviour of some afflictive disease, and made this feast to show his gratitude.

Sat down to meat. The original word here means only that he placed himself or reclined at the table. The notion of sitting at meals is taken from modern customs, and was not practised by the Jews. See Barnes "Mt 23:6".

 

Meat. Supper. Food of any kind. Sat down to eat.

{a} "one of the Pharisees" Mt 26:6; Mr 14:3; Joh 11:2
