Matt. 22:1 ¶ Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying:
Matt. 22:2 “The kingdom of heaven is likea a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.
Matt. 22:3 He sent his servantsa to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.
Matt. 22:4 ¶ “Then he sent some more servantsa and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.’
