“Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.”
King James Version (KJV)
22:4 Fatlings - Fatted beasts and fowls.
Mt 22:4 Again, he sent forth other servants. This is a second invitation to those who had previously been invited and "would not come". The Jews were invited first of all, by the Savior and his apostles under the first commission before all things were ready, but they refused the invitation and rejected Christ. Then, after all was made ready by the death and resurrection of Christ and the establishment of the kingdom, they were again invited before the apostles turned to the Gentiles. For seven years from Pentecost, the gospel was preached to Jews alone. My oxen and [my] fatlings [are] killed. A description drawn from an ancient feast, where the substantial portion of the repast was flesh.
