Make your lunch dates

Excluding any person of the Trinity, Adam and Eve, the apostles, the major and minor prophets (including Moses, Daniel and John the Baptist), and the patriarchs, who are the top ten biblical characters you want to have lunch with in heaven? Here are mine, subject to change as I think about it:

10 Joseph
 9 Ruth
 8 Barnabas
 7 Rahab
 6 Samson
 5 Luke
 4 Job
 3 Noah
 2 Stephen
 1 Mary

I’m sure I’ll say “Doh! How could I have forgotten X?” before the ink dries.


  1. In any order since we will have eternity to schedule lunch:

    Lazarus, Naomi, the Samaritan woman at the well, Philemon, Noah, Job, Priscilla, Phoebe, Persis (might as well find out about her), Leah.

  2. Ooh Lazarus-- I want to ask if he was just a little upset about being resurrected!

  3. King Manasseh, David, Bathsheba, Abishag, Isaiah, Huldah, John the Apostle, Mary and Martha, Thomas.
