The Parable of the Marriage Feast

 

Matthew 22:1-14

 

Jesus was a master storyteller.

A king gave a wedding feast for his son.

The bride and the groom were not registered.

They did not have a rehearsal dinner.

 

The invited guests did not attend.

After they were invited again, they

Killed the servants who had invited them.

The king killed the killers and burned their city.

 

The king sent his servants to invite others.

Good people and bad people accepted.

When the king saw one who was not wearing

A wedding garment, the king removed him.

 

This was not the wedding of the century.

Thank God for the wedding feast at Cana.
