The words of our Lord recorded by Luke the evangelist in verses35 through 40 of the 12th chapter of his gospel contain a number of allusions to the Passover, the Messianic banquet, the Parousia, and the Lord's Supper. In this study we will analyze this passage theologically in light of these concepts. This theological analysis is intended to indicate to what extent each of these concepts is present in this pericope as well as the way in which these concepts are interrelated. Emphasis will also be placed upon the contribution this passage makes in indicating the factor of continuity in salvation—history.
