THE WEDDING FEA8T.
LESSON TEXT-Matt. 22H-H.
GOLDEN TEXT "P Jerusalem. Jeru
salem, that kllleth the prophets, and ton
eat'them that are-sent unto he how often
would I have gathered thy children to
gether, even as a hen gathereth her own
brood under wings, and ye would not,"
Luke 13:34 R. V.
To catch the full significance of this
parable, which Is alone recorded by
Matthew we need to be more or less
familiar with tho Jewish pride of race
and their feeling of superiority over
all "heathen" or outsiders, and the his
tory of their treatment of God's rep
resentatives, the prophets.
Following upon the parable referred
to In our last lesson the Pharisees per
ceived that Jesus spake of them and
they sought to arrest him (ch. 21:46).
In this lesson tho figure of the king
dom is changed from a vineyard to a
Relation to His People,
J. Tho King's Invitation Rejected,
vv. 1-7. The change of figure Just re
ferred to suggests not alone an occa
sion of festal Joy (Luke 14:1G), but
also Christ's relation to his people,
which Is that of a husband to his wife
(he being the son referred to, see I
Cor. 11:12; Eph. 5:24-32; John 3:29).
These Jewish leaders .and their nation
were first to be Invited to the mar
riage. This had been done by the
prophets of old and later by John the
Baptizer. Under this figure of a mar
riage our Lord speaks of three differ
ent Invitations. The first one was re
ceived with indifference, but indiffer
ence never removes responsibility.
Tho second invitation was received
with hostility. Nothing more fully
reveals the foolishness and hardness
of the human heart than the way la
which men treat the gracious Invita
tions of God's love.
Wonderful indeed Is the forbearance
of God. The sin of rejecting the cross,
God's offer of grace, Is immeasurably
greater than that incurred by those
Jews who rejected the "Man of Gall
lee." Question of Worthiness.
II. The Klngva Invitation Accepted,
yv. 8-10. Those Invited had Judged
themselves "not worthy." Now go to
the parting of the ways where people
congregate and "gather them In." Our
worthiness Is in that we accept, and if
we reject we are "not worthy." This
command to go outside was a prophecy
of the time when the Gentiles should
likewise be "partakers of grace."
Those who finally accepted the
king's Invitation were both good and
bad (v. 10), but the act of acceptance
was not an assurance of position as
we can see from the last part of the
parable. It is sad to think of the many
servants of the king who have neg
lected his command thus to go forth
and recruit the banquet feast. Final
ly (v. 10) we read that "the wedding
was filled." Heaven will not bo an
empf, place, Rev. 7:9-14.
III. The Unprepared Guest, vv. 11-14.
'Every guest was scrutinized by the
king. It was a strange sight to see
one who had neglected to avail him
self of the garment freely provided in
which to appear on such an occasion.
'This robe Is symbolical of the robe of
righteousness with which God will
clothe all who accept hts invitation,
Isa. 61:10; Rev. 19:7, 8; Eph. 4:24;
Rom. 13:14. For this man to present
himself clothed in his -own garment
was to insult the king, so our own
righteousness is as "filthy rags" in his
sight, Isa. 64:6; Phil. 3:9 R. V. When
'questioned about this act of Insolence
the guest was "speechless." So like
wise will all unbelievers stand one
day before the great king.
The Teaching of this parable em
phasizes our privileges in the king
dom of God. A full realization of that
kingdom means Joy, gladness and per
fect satisfaction. On a previous occa
sion Jesus gave up the parable of the
Great Supper which so much resem
bles this. Both of these parables have
to do with the attitude of men to the
Gospel invitation. There is the further
emphasis' upon the nature of the an
swer of men to this Invitation. The
first is that of men who are blind to
tho glory and beauty of that whloh Is
offered to' them, though their refusal
was not final. Men,- still blind, treat
this Invitation contemptuously and
turn to their own Interests, seeking
satisfaction, while others shamefully
treat the king's messengers. This
treatment Is followed by swift Judg
ment Once more the Invitation and

manuscripts sent In. but only proposed
solutions printed and offered for sale
ns monographs, in books on mathe
matics or In mathematical periodicals.
The awnrd will not be mnde until two
years after the publication of the mem
