Recent scholarship on food in the New Testament has tended to highlight the relationship of Christian and Jewish meals in the first century AD to Graeco-Roman meals. This too often obscures the relationship that these meals have with the Old Testament Scriptures and Jewish tradition. A brief examination of the Lucan theme of reversal, the juxtaposition of table and court in Mark, and the Pauline presentation of the Lord's Supper in 1 Corinthians show that there are a number of important links with understandings of food and its symbolism found in the Old Testament
