The King’s Banquet – The Gospel of Matthew, Part 84
In the passage we are reading today, Jesus tells a parable about a wedding. It is an illustration which Jesus uses more than once in the gospels and in slightly different ways, which would not be unusual for a traveling teacher/preacher. In this version we see a history of Israel and the invitation of the Gentiles into a place of blessing. What does it take to attend the banquet of the King?
The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.
– Matthew 22:2
