    Chapter 8 — The Marriage Supper of the Lamb

    “A CERTAIN man made a great supper, and bade many; and sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.” 1Luke 14:16, 17.GSAM 134.1

    “Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.” 2Revelation 19:9.GSAM 134.2

    The supper is the last meal of the day. In this parable there are three calls to supper. This parable must not be confounded with the calls to “dinner” spoken of in Matthew 22:1-7. The “dinner” is the mid-day meal. In the parable respecting the calls to dinner, we learn that those who made the call were “spitefully entreated” and slain, and that even the son of the king was killed. The king who had sent forth the call “destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.”GSAM 134.3

    This parable of the calls to “dinner,” showing the fate of those who first rejected that call, fittingly represented what actually came upon those who rejected the gospel of Christ, and slew him and his apostles. The Lord sent armies against that nation, who “destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city”—Jerusalem.GSAM 134.4
