The parable of the wedding is explained out, along with the importance of the garment. First take a look at the physical aspects of the text and put them into your own words. Here we see a king, a very important person is preparing a wedding for his son. Even in fairy tales, when a king prepares a wedding for his son the entire kingdom hears the news. The citizens of the kingdom would do anything to receive an invitation. But in this case we see that the people, who received an invitation preferred not to attend the wedding. We have to ask ourselves the question, is this normal? This is a wedding arranged for a prince. It is often viewed as a status symbol to receive an invitation to a celebrity wedding. The last time we saw a wedding arranged for a prince it was televised all around the world. All the world’s leaders were invited. They spent millions on preparations. How many people turned down that invitation? Since it is unlikely anyone would turn down a wedding invitation from a king we need to understand that this text must have a spiritual meaning.

Not only did these people ignore the invitation to the wedding but they killed the king’s servants delivering the news. Of course, this meant war and that is how the king responded, he destroyed all those who turned down the invitation.

Next, the king’s servants are directed to go to the common people and invite them to the wedding that had been prepared. When the king walks into the wedding he sees one person who did not have on a wedding garment. This is usually where the sermon begins. The speaker will proceed to describe details that are not found in the Bible. Here we will ignore tradition and look at the Bible, relying only upon God’s word to give us the information.

 The Wedding Garment KJV Matthew 22:2. The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, whichmade a marriage for his son,3. And sent forth his servants to call them thatwere bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.4. Again, he sent forthother servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have preparedmy dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: comeunto the marriage.5. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one tohis farm, another to his merchandise:6. And the remnant took his servants,and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.7. But when the king heardthereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed thosemurderers, and burned up their city.8. Then saith he to his servants, Thewedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.9. Go yetherefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to themarriage. 10. So those servants went out into the highways, and gatheredtogether all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding wasfurnished with guests.11. And when the king came in to see the guests, hesaw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12. And he saith untohim, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? Andhe was speechless. 13. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand andfoot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall beweeping and gnashing of teeth. 14. For many are called, but few are chosen. First take a look at the physical aspects of the text and put them into yourown words.

Here we will ignore tradition and lookat the Bible, relying only upon God’s word to give us the information. We can first look at some of the key word meanings from Strong’sconcordance, to gain a deeper insight. 4. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden,Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, andall things are ready: come unto the marriage. Strong’s Ref. # 1401 from GSN1210; a slave (literal or figurative, involuntary or voluntary;frequently, therefore in a qualified sense of subjection or subserviency): 5. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to
 
his merchandise: Strong’s Ref. # 272 from GSN0001 (as a negative particle) and GSN3199; to be careless of: 7. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth hisarmies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city Strong’s Ref. # 4153 adverb from GSN4152; non-physically, i.e. divinely, figuratively:10. So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together allas many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnishedwith guests. Strong’s Ref. # 4190 from a derivative of GSN4192; hurtful, i.e. evil (properly, in effect orinfluence, and thus differing from GSN2556, which refers rather to essentialcharacter, as well as from GSN4550, which indicates degeneracy fromoriginal virtue); figuratively, calamitous; also (passively) ill, i.e. diseased; butespecially (morally) culpable, i.e. derelict, vicious, facinorous; neuter(singular) mischief, malice, or (plural) guilt; masculine (singular) the devil, or(plural) sinners: 11. And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man whichhad not on a wedding garment:
