The Parable of the Wedding Banquet

22:2-14Ref -- Lk 14:16-24

1 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: 2 "The kingdom of heaven is like1 a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. 3 He sent his servants2 to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come. 4 "Then he sent some more servants3 and said, 'Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.' 5 "But they paid no attention and went off--one to his field, another to his business. 6 The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. 7 The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers4 and burned their city.
