Abraham’s Side

ABRAHAM’S SIDE (Luke.16.22-Luke.16.23; “Abraham’s bosom” in jb, kjv, nasb, and rsv). It indicates blessedness after death. The figure derives either from the Roman custom of reclining on the left side at meals, Lazarus being in the place of honor at Abraham’s right, leaning on his breast, or from its appropriateness as expressing closest fellowship (John.1.18; John.13.23). Since Abraham was the founder of the Hebrew nation, such closeness was the highest honor and bliss.
