v 11. And I tell you this, that many Gentiles will come from all over the world—from east and west—and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the feast in the Kingdom of Heaven.
The Gentiles were unmentionables – so to imagine them sharing the Kingdom with well-bred Jews was unthinkable! Jesus’ comments would have aroused both anger and opposition. But the Eternal Kingdom is open to all who will follow Jesus, Jews and Gentiles, rich and poor, young and old, Jesus’ call to them all is ‘Follow Me.’
