Matthew 22:1 In-Context

1 Jesus again used stories to teach the people. He said,
2 "The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding feast for his son.
3 The king invited some people to the feast. When the feast was ready, the king sent his servants to tell the people, but they refused to come.
4 "Then the king sent other servants, saying, 'Tell those who have been invited that my feast is ready. I have killed my best bulls and calves for the dinner, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding feast.'
5 "But the people refused to listen to the servants and left to do other things. One went to work in his field, and another went to his business.
