I love that Jesus uses stories to illustrate his points. I always wonder if he's just making them up on the fly, or if he prepared them like a few nights before. It's really great stuff. Such an amazing speaker.
I love verse 43 because it's my ticket into the kingdom of God. Man, I wonder if the Jews had really been obedient to God if I'd be invited to the party or if I'd be stuck out in the cold still. JM
