The Parable of the Wedding Banquet

The Parable of the Wedding Banquet, part 2 – Watch our April 10, 2022 adult Sunday school class by Tom Cantor

Watch our April 10, 2022 adult Sunday school class by Tom Cantor from the Gospel of Matthew on the Parable of the Wedding Banquet. Tom taught from Matthew 22:6-13.

Tom taught today on the first second of the Parable of the Wedding Banquet. He discussed this passage and referenced other passages like Luke 15 (the Parable of the Prodigal Son). He spoke how the Lord first went to the Jews and then the gentiles. He said the Gentiles are to make the Jews jealous by our lives in Jesus so they too will turn to Jesus Christ. He noted eternal life is now and friendship with God.

He broke the king’s command to go out into Go, Bid, Find. He then applied this pattern to evangelism. Tom also noted that it was the king who looked over the guests to determine who belonged and who didn’t. He applied this to saying it is God‘s job to determine the final salvation of people. He spoke of gods call and our response, “many are called but few are chosen.” We have to respond in order to be chosen.

Watch our April 3, 2022 adult Sunday school class by Tom Cantor (The Parable of the Wedding Banquet, part 1)

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.
