Writing about 18th-century hospitality

Recommended Posts

Three takeaways. Just like today hospitality depends on the person you meet. Secondly, what you wear affects people's perceptions, and judgements of you. That is as true today as it was back then. Third, the poor are generally more hospitable than the rich. Especially true with the natives.

 

Although we live in the 21st century the principles stay the same. From experience we affirm the truth of them.

Think of the average first-century dwelling in which Christ was born. One single large room, with maybe an upper room for guests. Animals who require special care, like Passover lambs, are raised in the house. So, when the "inn" is full of visiting relatives, a bed for a newborn child is found in a corncrib.
