The wrongly dressed guest at the wedding feast is seized

This parable has simple and complex strands which bring together themes about the chosen and the unworthy to be chosen. It is a somewhat exaggerated tale of a king who gives a wedding feast for his son to which the appropriate people are invited, all of whom let him down one way or another. He sends his servants to remind and encourage them, but they are beaten and murdered by the ingrates. So incensed is he that he has their killers tracked down and put to death, and is not satisfied until he has burned down their city with his army. He the sends out other servants to gather people from the highways, and bring them as invited guests to his feast. This happens, and all is well until the king notices one man not wearing wedding clothes. He has him bound and taken away, thrown “into the outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called but few are chosen” (Matthew 22: 13-14).
