Matthew 22:4-6. A 3rd Invitation 21 Sept 2023

Mat 22:4 Next he sent some more servants with the words,
"Tell those who have been invited:
Look, my banquet is all prepared,
my oxen and fattened cattle have been slaughtered,
everything is ready.
Come to the wedding."
5 But they were not interested:
one went off to his farm,
another to his business,
6 and the rest seized his servants,
maltreated them and killed them.

The third 'void' invitation, now with an explanation of the banquet, resulted in three kinds of responses:
a) One person went to his farm.
b) One person went to his business
c) The rest - and those are many - maltreated God's messengers and killed them.

How should the king respond?


Jesus, what are you inviting me for in 2023?
