    E.Lesser:Matthew 22, Luke 14:16-24 is about non-believers being invited to come to the supper prepared for whosoever is on the list. Most are too busy to be bothered they are on Broadway Matthew7:13. If you're not on the guest list "Revelations20.15".
    Have you been invited? John6:44,ready 1John 1:9,Matthew3:11.
