A drama of humility, the scene is set at a great house in Jerusalem where the Master has been invited to eat the Sabbath meal. As they wait for their guest to arrive the men eye each other expectantly till Caleb brings up the subject of who is to sit at the head of the table. They each feel they are entitled to sit there and that the right is there. There is no man there that is inferior to the others. Caleb suggest that when the Master arrives they'll let him decide who should have the place of honor. And the master said unto them, "Whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted."
