The story of the Great Banquet told by Jesus in Matthew 22:1-14 is another one of those parables that I just don’t understand.
King throws a party – a huge wedding reception. Invited people refuse to come. King sends servants out into the city to invite everyone to come in off the streets. They come and party. King punishes person (that he had brought in) attending for coming in the wrong clothes.
And please don’t tell me this is a proof-text for wearing suits and ties on Sunday morning. I’m sure someone uses it like that, but I sincerely doubt that’s what he’s talking about.
