Easter Enlightenment: Parable of the Wedding feast

Yesterday night was a little hectic, so I read while everyone else ate dinner.  First, we read Matthew 22:1-14.  Then we talked about why Jesus taught in parables and the symbols of the parable.  We finished off with one of my favorite modern parables - The Parable of the Bicycle by Stephen E.Robinson. (You'll find it if you scroll about half way down the web page.)  This parable helps me to understand some basic principles of the atonement.  To get the full impact of the message, I recommend reading Stephen E. Robinson's book, Believing Christ.
