And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables, and said,…
I. THE HISTORY OF THE MARRIAGE.
1. The marriage purposed.
2. The preliminary arrangements.
3. The servants sent out.
4. The message.
5. The advent of the king.
6. The inspection.
II. TURN TO Revelation 19. In ver. 7 it is no longer a purpose, but an accomplishment. The marriage of the Lamb is come. In the parable we saw "all things are ready," and the wedding garment was offered without money. Now in the Revelation we read, "And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen," etc. In the parable the servants were told to go and invite men (ver. 9). Blessed are they which are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. The King came to see the guests (ver. 11). "His eyes were as a flame of fire."
(Capel Molyneux, B. A.)
