Watch our April 3, 2022 adult Sunday school class by Tom Cantor from the Gospel of Matthew on the Parable of the Wedding Banquet. Tom taught from Matthew 22:1-5.
He taught on the first half of the Parable of the Wedding Banquet. First, he connected it with the previous chapter with the phrase in the first verse, “And Jesus answered”. What did he answer? Tom then drew from Psalm 2 to build his point about the Lord Jesus Christ being the cornerstone. He pointed out that the Bible is like the DNA genome in that it answers our needs. He used proverbs 8:22-31 to show the Father’s love for the Son.
Tom then noted that Genesis 24 is a long chapter about Abraham servant getting a bride for Isaac. He noted that the servants name is not mentioned in this passage. The application he used was that when we serve the Lord, we do not focus on ourselves.
Tom pointed out that we are like the servants in the parable to carry the message of God. He applied Revelation 22:17 to this point. He then pointed out God’s desire for all to be saved (I Timothy 2:4) and that none should perish (II Peter 3:9). Next, he applied this to God’s desire for the salvation of Israel (Romans 11:1). Tom noted God’s desire and repeated calls through Matthew 22:4.
