Genesis 31: 54: Fellowship meal.

54 He offered a sacrifice there in the hill country and invited his relatives to a meal. After they had eaten, they spent the night there. NIV

This little statement, towards the end of the chapter, seems to me to foreshadow the death of Jesus on the cross, and the establishing of Communion, the Lord’s Supper, as the memorial of what He did. It reminds me of a poster I saw a long time ago. It depicted a chalice of wine and some bread. The wording on it read:

‘Jesus of Nazareth invites you to a meal to be given in His honour.’

Jesus still invites ‘’his relatives to a meal’’.
