The Commission

Mt. 22:1-10 Parable of the King that prepared a banquet for the son’s wedding.

  • The “who is who” in the society were invited to the wedding banquet.
  • They all turned down the invitation with excuses.
  • Some even went as far as killing some of the servants sent to them.


The King’s Reaction:

  • He sent armies to destroy those wicked people.
  • He sent his servants to the highways (fringes/street) to gather as many as they can find both “good” and “bad” to the wedding.
