Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying:
2"The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.
3He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.
4"Then he sent some more servants 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.'
5"But they paid no attention and went off--one to his field, another to his business.
6The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them.
7The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.
8"Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come.
9Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.'
10So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.
11"But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes.
12'Friend,' he asked, 'how did you get in here without wedding clothes?' The man was speechless.
13"Then the king told the attendants, 'Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
"For many are invited, but few are chosen."
23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

“The Marriage Feast” is episode #229 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Phil Lollar, and originally aired on
April 24, 1993.
Kids' Radio tells the story of a king's generous invitation to his son's wedding and the subjects who rudely reject it.
It’s another episode of “Adventures in the Bible!” This time, Whit begins by reading a letter from Brooke Myers. It states: “Dear Mr. Whittaker, I have a friend who says that everybody is going to go to heaven no matter how good or bad they are, because God is love, and so He can’t send us to hell. I say my friend’s crazy. Who’s right?”
Whit answers the question by narrating his own version of Jesus’ parable of the marriage feast. The point is well made: God gives us many chances to come to Him. If we refuse Him and reject His Son, God can--and will--punish us. But there is hope. “The wages of sin is death, but the [free] gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
- This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »
- Why wouldn’t the duke, earl, or countess accept the king’s invitation?
- Why did the vulgar man refuse to wear the king’s wedding clothes?
- Do you know anyone who believes what Brooke’s friend believes, that because God is love, He won’t send us to hell?
- What would you say to that person?
- How do you feel about God sending those who reject Jesus to hell?
- The Duke of Terra quotes Gone With the Wind in this episode, saying "Land's the only thing worth living for-worth dyin' for! That's why they call me the Duke of Terra!"
Vulgar Man: Ooh, it even has a name! Huh, huh, huh. Yuck.
