Sacred Meal, Communal Meal, Table Fellowship in Late Antiquity, Early Judaism, and Early Christianity: Vol. 1, Old Testament, early Judaism, New Testament / [ed] David Hellholm and Dieter Sänger, Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2017, 673-695 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Descriptions of meals, eating, and drinking, with their background in biblical and post-biblical Jewish traditions, are important parts of the metaphoric message of the Book of Revelation, regardless whether the context is positive (divine) or negative (satanic). The primary meaning of this imagery is to express the notion of a divine (or anti-divine) sharing between human beings and representatives of the heavenly world. Rather than associating the imagery of meals, food, and drink in Revelation with emerging early Christian eucharistic practice and theology, there may be a connection with the Johannine notion of a human sharing with the divine which is spiritual-sapiential rather than eucharistic-sacramental.
