121. Parable of the Marriage Feast
1And again Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying,
2“The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a marriage feast for his son,
3and sent his servants to call those who were invited to the marriage feast; but they would not come.
4Again he sent other servants, saying, 'Tell those who are invited, Behold, I have made ready my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves are killed, and everything is ready; come to the marriage feast.'
5But they made light of it and went off, one to his farm, another to his business,
6while the rest seized his servants, treated them shamefully, and killed them.
7The king was angry, and he sent his troops and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.
8Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy.
9Go therefore to the thoroughfares, and invite to the marriage feast as many as you can find.'
10And those servants went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both bad and good; so the wedding hall was filled with guests.
11But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment;
12and he said to him, 'Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless.
13Then the king said to the attendants, 'Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.'
14For many are called, but few are chosen.”
122. The Request for a Sign
19Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
20The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?”
21But he spoke of the temple of his body. 22When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this; and they believed the word which Jesus had spoken.
