Biblical Dinners

“If you have never heard Jay speak or spend time with him I highly recommend it. Do not miss these opportunities. You will learn more about God’s word and how things tie together that you ever realized. I had the privilege of traveling and ministering with Jay in Rome. He is a walking Biblical commentary and a historical encyclopedia…”

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…

“Wonderful to meet you tonight at Calvary Chapel Apple Valley for the Biblical Dinner. Thank you for the educational entertaining evening. My agnostic daughter (seated as Peter) enjoyed the presentation very much. I’m hoping that it got through to her heart. Great Video’s too!”

The Biblical Dinner is full of surprises

  • Remarkable historical revelations from the The Last Supper
  • Long-forgotten meal customs that unlock the Scriptures
  • The startling significance of the Last Supper seating arrangements
  • The life-altering implications of a simple piece of bread
  • The same kind of food Jesus and His disciples ate at a feast
  • Ancient mealtime manners, customs, greetings and gestures
  • What really happened at the Last Supper and what it means to us today
  • The Biblical Dinner isn’t a Passover Seder—it’s much more

The Biblical Dinner is effective for… 

  • Evangelism
  • Healing broken relationships
  • Bible instruction
  • Pastoral training
  • Ministry Schools
  • Both large and small churches
  • Anytime of the year, not just Easter holidays

When hosting a sit-down meal isn’t practical, the Biblical Dinner is also available as a sermon or seminar. These options include all the rich content of the Biblical Dinner in a pulpit or classroom setting. Length can be adjusted to meet your needs, ranging from an hour to an 8-hour day of packed content. Contact us for more information.

One thought on “Biblical Dinners

  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.
