    VERSE (29) -
    Joh 12:2

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:29

    E hizo Leví gran banquete en su casa; y había mucha compaía de publicanos y de otros, los cuales estaban a la mesa con ellos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 5:29

    Verse 29. A great
    feast] dochn megalhn, A splendid entertainment. The word refers more properly to the number of the guests, and the manner in which they were received, than to the quality or quantity of the fare. A great number of his friends and acquaintance was collected on the occasion, that they might be convinced of the propriety of the change he had made, when they had the opportunity of seeing and hearing his heavenly teacher.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 29. And
    Levi made him a great feast in his own house , etc.] At Capernaum, which, very likely, was made some time after his call, though recorded here; for it is not reasonable to think there could be time enough that day to get ready so great a feast, as this is said to be Levi, it should seem, was a rich man, and in gratitude to Christ for his special grace and honour bestowed on him, made this entertainment for him; and he seems to have had also another view in it, to bring him into the company of his fellow publicans, hoping he might be useful to them, as he had been to him; for of this nature is true grace, to wish for, and desire the salvation of the souls of others, as well as a man's own: and there was a great company of publicans, and of others : yrja , which word is sometimes used in Talmudic writings for Gentiles; so yrja ta , the wife of others, is interpreted the wife of the Cuthites, or Samantans f246 : and thus the Jews explain the text in ( Deuteronomy 24:14) thou shalt not oppress an hired servant, that is poor and needy, whether he be of thy brethren, on which they make this remark, yrjal jrp , this excepts others; that, is, as the gloss interprets it, it excepts the nations of the world, or the Gentiles: they go on to expound the text, or of thy strangers that are in thy land; these are the proselytes of righteousness: within thy gates; these are they that eat things that are torn f247 : so that the others are distinguished from the Jews, and from both the proselytes of righteousness, and of the gate; and it is easy to observe, that publicans and Heathens are sometimes mentioned together: here it means sinners, as appears from ( Matthew 9:10, Mark 2:15) such the Gentiles were reckoned: that sat down with them ; being invited by Matthew.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 27-39 - It was a wonder of
    Christ's grace, that he would call a publican to be his disciple and follower. It was a wonder of his grace, that the cal was made so effectual. It was a wonder of his grace, that he came to call sinners to repentance, and to assure them of pardon. It was wonder of his grace, that he so patiently bore the contradiction of sinners against himself and his disciples. It was a wonder of his grace, that he fixed the services of his disciples according to their strength and standing. The Lord trains up his people gradually for the trials allotted them; we should copy his example in dealing with the weak in faith, or the tempted believer __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    29.
    Feast (dochn). Only here and chapter xiv. 13. From the same root as decomai, to receive. A reception.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:29 {A great
    feast} (docen megalen). Here and in #Lu 14:13 only in the N.T. The word doce, from decomai, means reception. Occurs in Plutarch and LXX. Levi made Jesus a big reception. {Publicans and others} (telwnwn kai allwn). Luke declines here to use "sinners" like #Mr 2:15 and #Mt 9:10 though he does so in verse #30 and in #15:1. None but social outcasts would eat with publicans at such a feast or barbecue, for it was a very large affair. {Were sitting at meat with them} (esan met' autwn katakeimenoi). Literally, were reclining with them (Jesus and the disciples). It was a motley crew that Levi had brought together, but he showed courage as well as loyalty to Jesus.
