Eating:

The ancient Hebrews would not eat with the Egyptians (Gen 43:32). In the time of our Lord they would not eat with Samaritans (Jhn 4:9), and were astonished that he ate with publicans and sinners (Mat 9:11). The Hebrews originally sat at table, but afterwards adopted the Persian and Chaldean practice of reclining (Luk 7:36-50). Their principal meal was at noon (Gen 43:16; 1Ki 20:16; Rth 2:14; Luk 14:12). The word "eat" is used metaphorically in Jer 15:16; Eze 3:1; Rev. 10:9. In Jhn 6:53-58, "eating and drinking" means believing in Christ. Women were never present as guests at meals (q.v.).
