Jesus Taught Not Everyone Accepts the Invitation

Luke 14:15-24

Jesus sees the back of the room.  The back of the room sees Jesus.  The front of the room?

After Jesus teaches about the folly of popularity and the importance of genuine hospitality, a man responds, "Blessed is the one who eats at the feast in the kingdom of God."  And the expert teacher responds to the correct statement turning the attention from those who invite to the One who sends the ultimate invitation.
