Abraham's Bosom

In Luke 16:22 , Lazarus is said to have been carried to Abraham's bosom, that is, to the state of bliss in paradise which the father of the faithful was enjoying. This is often represented by a feast, by sitting down to a banquet, Matthew 8:11 Luke 13:29 . To lie on one's bosom refers to the oriental mode of reclining at table, John 13:23 . See EATING .
