Feasting on the Bread of Life is a Divine Pleasure
Tuesdays with Edwards!
Sometime between August 1728 and February 1729 Edwards preached The Spiritual Blessings of the Gospel Represented by a Feast based on Luke 14:16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper and bade many. My Tuesdays with Edwards posts have been looking at the ways which show “how gospel provision is well represented by a feast.”
Edwards showed how he saw this:
in the expensiveness of gospel blessings,
in the free offer of it,
as it nourishes the soul as food does the body,
because of the excellency of it,
by the abundance and variety of it,
and by the friendship of those that feast together.
Today’s post looks at a seventh parallel.
