Hospitality was very important in both the Old Testament and the New Testament times. This aspect of religion was taken very seriously. Travelers could not easily find a room to rent or food to eat nor did they have much disposable income to pay for these things. It would have been very rude for a host not to provide food for a traveler or for a guest not to eat it. But if it was very late and a family’s door was shut it might take a lot of persistence to receive this hospitality.
