THE PARABLE OF THE GREAT BANQUET
In the spiritual realm, certain things are turned up side down. We saw in our last lesson that the proud are humbled and the humble are exalted. This is mentioned in Luke 14:11 in the parable of the guests. Today we will study another parable, the parable of the great banquet, where we see a similar reversal. Many who attended the banquet were among those who were least expected to attend and those most expected to be there were among those who were excluded. This passage is found in Luke 14:16-24. We will read from v. 12.
