A few days before Jesus died for our sins, the chief priest and elders challenged His authority to teach in the Temple. Jesus in turn challenged them by asking whether the baptism of John was from heaven or from men. They refuse to answer Jesus because of their fear of the people and their disobedience to john’s baptism. Jesus refuses to answer them but tell them three parables in response to their challenging His authority. The third of these parables, the wedding feast, reveals again the rejection of the gospel by the rebellious Jews. Spurning the gospel, the wedding feast invitation, they also persecuted and killed those who spread the gospel. In this parable, Jesus adds the point about vengeance that would come on the jaws pointing to the Roman armies destruction of the city of Jerusalem in 70 AD. Then, He adds the point that even if we accept the gospel invitation symbolized by the wedding feast, we will be rejected if we have not put on Christ through baptism for forgiveness of sins or fail to do deeds of righteousness according to the Scriptures after we have become Christians. Therefore, many are called but few are chosen. Let us study this parable to make sure that we are chosen and not just called and then rejected at judgment.
