"The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son.
He sent out his slaves to summon those invited to the banquet, but they didn't want to come.
Again, he sent out other slaves, and said, 'Tell those who are invited: Look, I've prepared my dinner; my oxen and fattened cattle have been slaughtered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.'
"But they paid no attention and went away, one to his own farm, another to his business.
And the others seized his slaves, treated them outrageously and killed them.
