Luke 11:37 While Jesus was speaking, a Pharisee asked Him to dine with him, so He went in and reclined at table.
You mean, Jesus accepted hospitality from Pharisees? Yes, astonishing thought some may think it, He did. Ah, but this was mission, right? He needed to be there in order to tear the Pharisees off a strip about neglecting "justice and the love of God" (v. 42).
No, that happened afterwards. Jesus went to dine with the Pharisee because He was asked. That's right - just because He was asked. The other stuff came afterwards. Have you asked Jesus to dine with you?
