John Wesley's notes on the Gospel: Luke 14:1-11
Chapter XIV 
2  There was a certain man before him - It does not appear that he was come thither with any insidious design. Probably he came, hoping for a cure, or perhaps was one of the family. 

3  And Jesus answering, spake - Answering the thoughts which he saw rising in their hearts. 

7  He spake a parable - The ensuing discourse is so termed, because several parts are not to be understood literally. The general scope of it is, Not only at a marriage feast, but on every occasion, he that exalteth himself shall be abased, and he that abaseth himself shall be exalted. 

11  Mt 23:12.
