Israelites generally ate twice daily Ex. 16:12, 1 Ki. 17:6, Jn 21:4, 5, 12).
At the time of Christ, guests reclined on couches around three sides of a rectangular table, giving servants access to the fourth side.
Position 1 was the “highest room” (Luke 14:8) because, being first to receive the food from the servant’s right hand, he had first choice; the dish was then passed to the next position in order.
Position 9 was the “lowest room” (Luke 14:9) because, being last to receive the dish, he could choose only what was left on it.
