Mathew 22 25 King James Bible
Bible Verses Commentary on Bible Verses 22:1-10 Jesus again addressed them in illustrations: “The Kingdom of Heaven resembles the circumstance which emerged when a man who was a lord orchestrated a wedding for his child. He sent his hirelings to gather the individuals who had been welcome to the wedding, and they declined to come. He again sent different hirelings. ‘Tell the individuals who have been welcomed,’ he stated, ‘look you, I have my dinner all arranged; my bulls and my uniquely swelled creatures have been murdered; and everything is prepared. Go to the wedding.’ But they slighted the welcome and left, one to his domain, and another to his business. The rest grabbed the hirelings and treated them dishonorably and executed them. The lord was irate, and sent his militaries, and demolished those killers, and set fire to their city. At that point he said to his hirelings, ‘The wedding is prepared. The individuals who have been welcomed did not have the right to come. Go, at that point, to the thruways and welcome to the wedding all you may discover.’ So the workers went out to the streets, and gathered all whom they found, both awful and great; and the wedding was provided with visitors.”
Bible Verses Commentary on Bible Verses Matthew 22:1-14 frame not one illustration, but rather two; and we will get a handle on their importance undeniably more effectively and unquestionably more completely on the off chance that we take them independently.
The occasions of the first of the two were totally as per typical Jewish traditions. At the point when the solicitations to an incredible devour, similar to a wedding feast, were conveyed, the time was not expressed; and when everything was prepared the workers were conveyed with a last summons to advise the visitors to come. Along these lines, at that point, the ruler in this illustration had long prior conveyed his solicitations; however it was not till everything was readied that the last summons was issued- – and insultingly can’t. This illustration has two implications.
(I) It has a simply neighborhood meaning. Its nearby significance was a driving home of what had just been, said in the Parable of the Wicked Husbandmen; by and by it was an allegation of the Jews. The welcomed visitors who when the time came declined to come, represent the Jews. A long time prior they had been welcomed by God to be his picked individuals; yet when God’s child appeared on the scene, and they were welcome to tail him they derisively can’t. The outcome was that the welcome of God went out direct to the interstates and the byways; and the general population in the roadways and the byways represent the miscreants and the Gentiles, who never anticipated a welcome into the Kingdom.
As the essayist of the gospel saw it, the results of the refusal were awful. There is one stanza of the anecdote which is unusually strange; and that since it isn’t a piece of the first illustration as Jesus let it know, however an elucidation by the author of the gospel. That is Matthew 22:7, which tells how the lord sent his armed forces against the individuals who declined the welcome, and consumed their city.
This presentation of armed forces and the consuming of the city appears at first sight totally strange taken regarding solicitations to a wedding feast. However, Matthew was forming his gospel some time between A.D. 80 and 90. What had occurred amid the period between the genuine existence of Jesus and now? The appropriate response is- – the pulverization of Jerusalem by the armed forces of Rome in A.D. 70. The Temple was sacked and consumed and the city obliterated stone from stone, with the goal that a furrow was drawn crosswise over it. Complete fiasco had gone to the individuals who declined to perceive the Son of God when he came.
The author of the gospel includes as his remark the horrendous things which did in truth happen to the country which would not take the method for Christ. What’s more, it is in reality the basic chronicled truth that if the Jews had acknowledged the method for Christ, and had strolled in adoration, in lowliness and in forfeit they could never have been the insubordinate, warring individuals who at last incited the avenging anger of Rome, when Rome could stand their political plots never again.
(ii) Equally this story has a lot to state on an a lot more extensive scale.
(an) It helps us that the welcome to remember God is to a devour as blissful as a wedding feast. His welcome is to bliss. To consider Christianity a miserable surrendering of everything which brings chuckling and daylight and glad cooperation is to botch its entire nature. It is to euphoria that the Christian is welcomed; and it is delight he misses, in the event that he denies the welcome.
(b) It advises us that the things which make men hard of hearing to the welcome of Christ are not really awful in themselves. One man went to his domain; the other to his business. They turned out poorly on a wild diversion or a shameless experience. They went off on the, in itself, fantastic undertaking of productively directing their business life. It is simple for a man to be so occupied with the things of time that he overlooks the things of time everlasting, to be so distracted with the things which are seen that he overlooks the things which are inconspicuous, to hear so unyieldingly the cases of the world that he can’t hear the delicate welcome of the voice of Christ. The deplorability of life is that it is so regularly the second bests which close out the bests, that it is things which are great in themselves which closed out the things that are incomparable. A man can be so bustling bringing home the bacon that he neglects to make an actual existence; he can be so occupied with the organization and the association of life that he overlooks life itself.
(c) It helps us that the intrigue to remember Christ isn’t such a great amount to think about how we will be rebuffed all things considered to perceive what we will miss, on the off chance that we don’t take his method for things. The individuals who might not come were rebuffed, but rather their genuine catastrophe was that they lost the delight of the wedding feast. On the off chance that we decline the welcome of Christ, some time or another our most prominent torment will lie, not in the things we endure, but rather in the acknowledgment of the valuable things we have missed.
(d) It advises us that in the last investigation God’s welcome is the welcome of effortlessness. The individuals who were assembled in from the roadways and the byways had no case on the lord at a; they would never by any stretch of creative ability have anticipated that a welcome should the wedding feast, still less might they be able to ever have merited it. It came to them from nothing other than the wide-furnished, kind, liberal friendliness of the lord. It was beauty which offered the welcome and effortlessness which assembled men in.
Bible Verses Commentary on Bible Verses (Matthew 22:11-14)
22:11-14 The lord came in to see the individuals who were sitting at table, and he saw there a man who was not wearing a wedding article of clothing. “Companion,” he said to him, “how could you come here with no wedding article of clothing?” The man was struck quiet. At that point the lord said to the chaperons, “Tie him hands and feet, and toss him out into the external murkiness. There will sob and lashing out there. For some are called, however few are picked.”
This is a second illustration, however it is likewise a nearby continuation and enhancement of the past one. It is the tale of a visitor who showed up at an imperial wedding feast without a wedding article of clothing.
One of the incredible interests of this illustration is that in it we see Jesus taking a story which was at that point recognizable to his listeners and utilizing it in his own particular manner. The Rabbis had two stories which included lords and articles of clothing. The first recounted a lord who welcomed his visitors to a devour, without revealing to them the correct date and time; however he told them that they should wash, and bless, and dress themselves that they may be prepared when the request came. The savvy set themselves up without a moment’s delay, and took their places holding up at the castle entryway, for they trusted that in a royal residence a devour could be arranged so rapidly that there would be no long cautioning. The stupid trusted that it would require a long investment to make the fundamental arrangements and that they would have a lot of time. So they went, the artisan to his lime, the potter to his earth, the smith to his heater, the more full to his fading ground, and went on with their work. At that point, all of a sudden, the request to the devour came with no notice. The savvy were prepared to take a seat, and the lord celebrated over them, and they ate and drank. However, the individuals who had not displayed themselves in their wedding pieces of clothing needed to remain outside, miserable and hungry, and look on at the delight that they had lost. That rabbinic illustration recounts the obligation of readiness for the request of God, and the pieces of clothing represent the arrangement that must be made.
The second rabbinic anecdote advised how a ruler endowed to his hirelings imperial robes. The individuals who were shrewd took the robes, and cautiously put away them away, and kept them in the entirety of their immaculate perfection. The individuals who were stupid wore the robes to their work, and dirty and recolored them. The day came when the ruler requested the robes back. The savvy gave them back crisp and clean; so the lord laid up the robes in his treasury and bade them go in harmony. The absurd gave them back recolored and ruined. The ruler told that the robes ought to be given to the more full to wash down, and that the absurd workers ought to be thrown into jail. This anecdote instructs that a man must hand back his spirit to God in the entirety of its unique virtue; yet that the man who has only a recolored soul to render back stands denounced.
Most likely Jesus had these two stories as a primary concern when he recounted his very own story. What, at that point, would he say he was looking to educate? This story additionally contains both a neighborhood and an all inclusive exercise.
(I) The neighborhood exercise is this. Jesus has recently said that the ruler, to supply his devour with visitors, sent his ambassadors out into the parkways and byways to assemble all men in. That was the story of the open entryway. It told how the Gentiles and the heathens would be assembled in. This illustration strikes the important parity. The facts demonstrate that the entryway is available to a men, yet when they come they should convey a real existence which tries to fit the affection which has been given to them. Elegance isn’t just a blessing; it is a grave duty. A man can’t continue carrying on with the existence he lived before he met Jesus Christ. He should be dressed in another immaculateness and another blessedness and another integrity.
