Breaking bread, what an honor

In the ancient world, an invitation to break bread with someone was considered a great honor. In the Holy Land, it remains so even today. This was more than an invitation to share a meal, but a sign of deep friendship. To reject the invitation was to reject the person offering the invitation.

At the Passover Feast, Jesus “broke bread” with His disciples. While doing so, He said they were no longer servants. “Today, I call you friends.” Ponder that a moment… being a friend to Jesus, the Son of God. Not a servant, a friend! I shudder to think about all that means.

Even Judas was invited to break bread with Jesus. Yet Jesus broke the bread, dipped it in the wine and handed it to the man He knew would betray Him. You do not break bread with an enemy. You break bread with a friend. Even before His betrayal, Jesus was forgiving this man who would soon betray Him. I am truly in awe of this man, Jesus, that even He could do such a thing.

We, as Christians, are invited to the Table of Jesus. We are invited to break bread with Him. “Take, eat… do this in remembrance of Me.” What a marvelous honor! Would we dare to refuse?

Shalom,
Art
