Hospitality in the Biblical Tradition
1 Peter 4:7-9
Synopsis: Today I start a short series on hospitality. I start with Hospitality in the Biblical Tradition with references pulled from Genesis to Revelation. Hospitality is a true characteristic of God’s people found in both Testaments. It requires believers to “make room” for the stranger as well as fellow believers. Indeed, hospitality is a matter of the heart before it is a matter of a place at the table.
Scripture Text (NLT): Hebrews 13:1-33 (References to Abraham in Genesis 18 & Lot in Genesis 19); Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Peter 4:7-9; Romans; 1 Kings 17:8-24; Acts 6:1 & 7; Matthew ; Deuteronomy 10:14-22; Revelation 3:7-13.
Scripture Reading: Hebrews 13:1-3
