Synopsis     1Chron 29:17-28     2/17/2020 

King David held his final assembly with the people. Near the end of the assembly, David led his leadership team in a feast and a final blessing for the Lord.  

After this, he once again named Solomon as the new king. And so, Solomon began his extraordinary reign over Israel.  

David’s Final Feast 

King David held his final assembly. During the event, he raised additional money for the temple construction project. Then, he announced Solomon’s kingship. And, he also led his people in offering a sacrifice. Finally, he celebrated a feast with the whole assembly.  

The Feasting Assembly 

Jesus ate. And when he ate, he often ate with other people.  

This was normal. Still, it’s no small thing that he ate with other people even after his resurrection. And before ascending the Mount of Olives, his last communal act was to eat with his apostles.  

Eating is necessary to survive. And, eating in community is necessary for a community to survive.  

So, it’s no real surprise that we remember Him in our eating. And it’s even less of a surprise that we most closely relate to him, in an act of eating.  

“Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.” John 6:56
