Hello, a parable of a wedding that Jesus Christ speaks of prepared for the sons of the king is recorded at Matthew chapter 22 and this tells of how the people invited to the wedding are unwilling to come for varies reasons, Luke 14:18-20. When the slaves of the master came with the invitations to the wedding the people wanted to be excused and treated the slaves disrespectfully and killed them, Matthew 22:5-6.
The reaction of the king is relayed in yet another parable regarding the talents given to three slaves, Matthew 25:14-30. How is the prophecy for the parables explained? At Daniel 9:26-27 in which the Messiah is expresses to be Jewish coming in 69 weeks having nothing for himself which is explained in Matthew as going abroad, Matthew 25:14. Upon his return at the 70th week, Daniel 9:27 he makes ready a wedding feast and invites people to the banquet, Matthew 22:1-6. The anger at flimsy excuses for not wanting to attend the wedding is explained at Luke 19:27 which gives the order to destroy all that refuses to come to wedding by coming before the king to receive judgment, 2 Thessalonians 1:8-10.
The Judgment given to those that were called but did refuse to attend were unworthy, Matthew 22:8-10. In the prophetic word of God, the reaction was to gather those both good and bad to attend the wedding, Acts 13:46-47. This is also preached as explained at Matthew 21:42-44. In respond to finding one's worth to join the wedding banquet of the Kingdom the people were judged individually according to their deeds, Matthew 13:47-50. In the Judgment relayed by the King the people separated will be done so in the presence of the king, Matthew 22:11-13. Who directs the angels that separated them sheep or the goats, Matthew 25:31-46. This happens when the king comes in his glory at the Second Coming of Christ, Matthew 24:29-31. The Judgment of invited ones is clearly defined at Matthew 7:13-14.
The reaction of those who rejected the invitation to the wedding banquet decided that they would try to entrap Jesus within religious deeds, Mark 12:13 and Luke 20:20. This leads to the most famous speeches in the word of God: Caesar's Coin Matthew 22:15-22, Marriage Rights Matthew 22:23-33, Greatest Law Commandments Matthew 22:34-40, Who is the genealogy of the Messiah Matthew 22:41-46.
