What does Luke 14:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 14:15

And when one of them that sat at meat with him
One of the Scribes, lawyers, or Pharisees, that were guests at this feast:

heard these things:
which were spoken by Christ, and was pleased and affected with them, though he was ignorant:

he said unto him, blessed is he that shall eat bread in the
kingdom of God;
in the world to come, in the kingdom of the Messiah; concerning feasting in which, the Jews had entertained very gross notions; and which this man was reminded of by Christ's making mention of the resurrection of the just, and of recompense at that time, which the Jews expected at the Messiah's coming. They suppose, that God will make a splendid feast, a sumptuous entertainment; in which, besides "bread", which they call, (twklm lv hmxl) , "the bread of the kingdom", and "the bread of the world to come" F13, there will be great variety of flesh, fish, and fowl, plenty of generous wine, and all sorts of delicious fruit: particularly they speak of a large ox, which they suppose to be the Behemoth in Job, that will then be prepared; and of Leviathan and his mate, which will then be dressed; and of a large fowl, called Ziz, of a monstrous size; and of old wine kept in the grape from the creation of the world, which will then be drank; and of the rich fruits of the garden of Eden, that will then be served up F14: such gross and carnal notions have they entertained of the world to come; and which this man seemed to have imbibed, and placed happiness in.
