    Definitions for Luke 7:36

    Meat - Food.

    Clarke's Commentary on Luke 7:36

    One of the Pharisees - Called Simon, Luke 7:40. This account is considered by many critics and commentators to be the same with that in Matthew 26:6, etc., Mark 14:3; and John 12:3. This subject is considered pretty much at large in the notes on Matthew 26:6, etc., to which the reader is requested to refer.

    Barnes' Notes on Luke 7:36

    One of the Pharisees - His name was Simon, Luke 7:10. Nothing more is known of him. It is not improbable, however, from what follows Luke 7:40-47, that he had been healed by the Saviour of some afflictive disease, and made this feast to show his gratitude.

    Sat down to meat - The original word here means only that he placed himself or reclined at the table. The notion of "sitting" at meals is taken from modern customs, and was not practiced by the Jews. See the notes at Matthew 23:6.

    Meat - Supper. Food of any kind. Sat down to eat.

    Wesley's Notes on Luke 7:36

    7:36 And one of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him - Let the candour with which our Lord accepted this invitation, and his gentleness and prudence at this ensnaring entertainment, teach us to mingle the wisdom of the serpent, with the innocence and sweetness of the dove. Let us neither absolutely refuse all favours, nor resent all neglects, from those whose friendship is at best very doubtful, and their intimacy by no means safe.
