How is the Kingdom of Heaven like a wedding feast? also..if its like a big banquet, then I dont understand why none of the invited guests actually went? Jesus says its like a feast, so why not go? It says besically that everyone had more 'important' stuff to do, but what is more important than a free all you can eat (I assume) banquet? I dont see the connection. Im familiar with the interpretation of the invitations as pointing to Jewish rejection of the prophets and then of the Messiah, but how exactly is the Kingdom of Heaven actually like a big banquet? Thanks!
(this parable is from Matthew 22:1-14)
