More than in any other gospel, we see in the gospel of Luke that Jesus partakes at dinner with different groups of people, Pharisees and tax collectors alike. The author of the third gospel places these meal narratives at important stages of his gospel. Barrier – Breaking Banquet attempts to understand how and why Luke models the meals of Jesus after the popular Hellenistic meal tradition- Symposium.
