For when Jesus refers in verse 13 to persons improperly clothed as being cast “into outer darkness” where “there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth,” He is referring to the final judgment. There are three things we must notice here. But the judgment of the king is represented not only by this act of destruction; it is also seen in his offering the invitation to others, which leads to us to the next part of the parable. For example, in the days of Josiah, the prophet Zephaniah made use of the banquet metaphor when he warned of God’s coming judgment on Jerusalem: NKJ Zephaniah 1:7-10 “Be silent in the presence of the Lord GOD; for the day of the LORD is at hand, for the LORD has prepared a sacrifice; He has invited His guests. To be invited is to be treated like a friend of the king.

This week, we will examine the third parable in this trilogy, the Parable of the Wedding Feast, which is introduced in verse 1 with the simple statement, “And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said ….” No other introductory statement is necessary, since the context of the previous two parables and the situation that occasioned them is assumed. The Parable. Carson has summarized the meaning of this conclusion quite well: Many are invited; but some refuse to come, and others who do come refuse to submit to the norms of the kingdom and are therefore rejected.

Extravagant amounts of money are spent for the ceremony and the reception. Jesus teaches that the Kingdom of God is open to everyone, not only Jews. Yet such apathy was mild in comparison to what the others did. Indeed what is needed is to be properly clothed is a righteousness that exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, and this is the righteousness of Christ. 24 “Teacher,” they said, “Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and raise up offspring for him. So they left him and went away. You aren’t swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who they are.

But there is another reason that Jesus includes such a detail in the parable, namely that it further stresses a point made in the preceding context. In it we are told that, when Jesus returns, His followers will themselves be guests at a great wedding banquet, which is referred to as the Wedding Supper of the Lamb: NKJ Revelation 19:6-9 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! 22 And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said: 2 “The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, 3 and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come.
