Biblical Dinners & Galilean Weddings

Two powerful events by pastor Jay, presented locally, nationally, globally

What is a Biblical Dinner?

Imagine sitting down to dinner with your friends at a low, odd-shaped table, the room aglow with ancient oil lamps. The table is set with a sumptuous meal straight from the Bible. You’re at a feast served thousands of years ago. You pray in Hebrew. You eat with your hands. You practice meal customs and table manners from Abraham’s time to the Last Supper. Your host walks you step by step through the forgotten significance of Biblical meals and their amazing spiritual application in everyday life. Your mind and heart overflow with a powerful new understanding of the Bible, provoked to a deeper walk in Christ’s love. It changes everything. It’s a Biblical Dinner. Based on Jay’s book, Broken Bread—coming soon as a major documentary video and book, Eating with the Enemy.

What is a Galilean Wedding?

It’s the middle of the night. You are startled awake by shouting and the blast of ram’s horn trumpet. The clamor grows as you lean out the window to see an onrushing parade of noisy revelers with burning torches, blowing musical horns. A man crowned with laurel leaves leads the procession—carried above the revelers on a queenly litter rides a veiled woman, splendidly adorned. The bridegroom has come for his bride and the village rejoices. There’s going to be a wedding…!

The Bible tells of a day whose sheer joy, majesty and love will outshine all other days. It’s a day where no expression of Scripture proclaims more magnificently the affection of Jesus for His Bride, the Church—and His great longing for her. The incarnation, the cross, the resurrection and ascension point straight to this one supreme future event—The Wedding Feast of the Lamb. Jesus spoke of this day using imagery that His disciples understood—the customs of a simple Galilean wedding. In the tradition of The Biblical Dinner, The Galilean Wedding recreates an ancient wedding, revealing the greatest event at the end of the world—the day the Bride is united with her Bridegroom forever. It will be Jesus’ greatest day—and ours. Now a major video documentary and book, Before the Wrath”

My Deepest Appreciation to…

…the scholars and associates at the Biblical History Center (formerly Explorations in Antiquities), especially Elfie, Barbara, Hannaniah Pinto and Dr. Jim Fleming, for inspiring this ministry, and to my friend Gayle Erwin, who opened my eyes to the nature of Jesus. I encourage you to visit the Biblical History Center and Servant Quarters websites to meet the people who have guided me on this journey. —Jay

One thought on “Biblical Dinners & Galilean Weddings

  1. Does Jay have any plans to come back to the UK or Northern Ireland in the near future? If not, is there any way the Biblical Dinner could be replicated by someone local? I have been to the Biblical Dinners with Jay on 4 occasions – never tire of it – it is just amazing.
    I would love to be able to allow folks in our fellowship the wonderful experience.
