As a Theologian, I strive to understand different interpretations of different dreams about different things. I was particularly interested in the meanings of tables in dreams last year when I came across a discussion about such dreams in a Christian Facebook group.
One of the Christian dream interpreters explained that dreams about tables remind Christians of the importance of fellowship. Her explanations were eye-opening, and I wanted to know what other believers think about dreaming of a table.
So, I consulted the clergy and spiritual people, studied the Bible, and read different articles about the meaning of a table in a dream.
So, last week, we discussed dreams about furniture in our Christian weekly forum when one member said he needed someone to give him a biblical interpretation of his dream about a table.
