Matthew's Parable of the Royal Wedding Feast

  • By Ruth Christa Mathieson
Product Description

Ruth Christa Mathieson's unique reading of Matthew's parable of the royal wedding feast (Matt 22:1-14), which concludes with the king's demand that one of the guests be bound and cast out into the outer darkness, focuses on the means of the underdressed guest's expulsion. Using sociorhetorical interpretation, Mathieson draws the parable into conversation with early Jewish narratives of the angel Raphael binding hands and feet (1 Enoch; Tobit) and the protocol for expelling individuals from the community in Matt 18. She asserts that readers are invited to consider if the person who is bound and cast out is a danger to the little ones of the community of faith unless removed and restrained.
