The Supper of the Lamb Bible Verses
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb Event
Most have heard or read about this event called the Marriage Supper of the
Lamb. But ... They do not know what the Marriage Supper of the Lamb truly
is. It is a very important event and it may very well affect you.
I would like to look at a few Parables that Jesus shared and find out how
they relate to our Christian walk today and the Marriage Supper of the
Lamb. Here are several of the questions we will want the answers to as we
research the Scripture for answers:
- What is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb?
- When is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb?
- Why is there a Marriage Supper of the Lamb?
- Where is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb to take place?
- How does one become invited to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb?
- Who is the Bride of this Marriage Supper of the Lamb?
Let us proceed, shall we?
1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and
2 The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain king,
which made a marriage for His Son,
3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to
the wedding: and they would not come.
4 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.
5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his
farm, another to his merchandise:
6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them
spitefully, and slew them.
7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent
forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
A parable is a story which uses various symbols. To discern a parable, one
must discern the symbols. So the symbol of the King represents God. The
servants are the prophets of the past in the Bible. The Marriage of the
Son is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Jesus is the Son. God sent
prophets to invite the people to come to this wedding but they chose not
to because they were too busy. They even killed the prophets as the
Bible also reveals. The city burned up was Jerusalem in 587 BC. Jesus has
just revealed that God had the King of Babylon destroy the city for
what they did to His servants, the prophets over the years.
Let's see what else Jesus said ...
8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but
they which were bidden were not worthy.
9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall
find, bid to the marriage.
10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered
together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the
wedding was furnished with guests.
11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a
man which had not on a wedding garment:
12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not
having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot,
and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be
weeping and gnashing of teeth.
14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
The Supper of the Lamb Bible Hope
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is Coming
The Jewish people were found unworthy (though they too now have an
opportunity to receive the Grace that comes only by believing in
Jesus). The people that are now invited are the Gentiles (nations other
than Israel) and it is clear that the bad represents sinners now having opportunity at Grace by the Blood of Jesus.
The wedding garment ... Represents being prepared . The next parable will explain this a little better. It is in Matthew,
1 Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins,
which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their
5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom
cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for
our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not
enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they
that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord,
open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know
Note that like in the other parable of Jesus it speaks of a wedding.
(Bridegroom) This is another parable speaking of being prepared for this
Spiritual wedding. As Jesus said right after this Parable in Verse 13 ...
Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein
the Son of man cometh.
Jesus then began to share another parable ...
14 For the Kingdom of Heaven is as a man traveling into a far
country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to
another one; to every man according to his several ability; and
straightway took his journey.
Jesus is the traveling man. The journey He took is this time He has been
gone from when He rose to Heaven until His Return. The talents (money)
represent gifts we have received from the Holy Ghost to reach and teach
others as to glorify God. The Parable continues ...
16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded
with the same, and made them other five talents.
17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other
18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth,
and hid his Lord's money.
So these three individuals in Jesus' parable went and invested the
talents they were given and brought in more. But more what?
19 After a long time the Lord of those servants cometh, and
reckoneth with them.
20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought
other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents:
behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
21 His Lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful
servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler
over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.
22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord,
thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other
talents beside them.
23 His Lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful
servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler
over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.

So, we see the ones who invested their talents were rewarded cuz they
brought in more fruit by their efforts. But what became of the one who
chose to go hide what he received?
Let's go see ...
24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said,
Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not
sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth:
lo, there thou hast that is thine.
26 His Lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and
slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather
where I have not strawed:
27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the
exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him
which hath ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall
have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that
which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness:
there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Ouch ... The person who received the talents and did nothing with them but bury them was deemed an unprofitable servant.
So, what is Jesus telling us in this parable? He is talking about reaching for lost souls. Sharing the Spirit of Truth by spreading the Word of God.
By having Love and compassion for others ...
1 Let brotherly love continue.
2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some
have entertained Angels unawares.
3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them
which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.
Jesus continues ...
31 When the Son of man shall come in His glory, and all the
holy Angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory:
32 And before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall
separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the
33 And He shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats
on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come,
ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the
foundation of the world:

Many call this the great sheep and goat judgment. Jesus will separate
those who were profitable servants from unprofitable servants ... Listen
to what Jesus shares about what a profitable servant is like.
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty,
and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I
was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw
we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say
unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my
brethren, ye have done it unto me.
So, we see that Jesus is referring to showing brotherly love. To Love one another and to treat those you encounter as if it was Jesus because what you do to them ... You do to Him. But, what of the unprofitable servant?
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart
from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty,
and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye
clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we
thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in
prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the
righteous into life eternal.
Again ... Jesus is not fond of those who do not "pay it forward"
... That means those who receive Love, forgiveness and Grace but do
not provide the same for others. He does not believe that we should
receive gifts and do nothing with them. He does not believe we should
believe ourselves to be saved and see a sinner or a lost or troubled soul
and say ewwwwwwwwww.
He believes we should reach for them as He did us. If today was the last day for you ... Are you going to be considered a profitable servant? We must never allow ourselves to become complacent or doubt His
return or suggest that we are not to know when He returns so what does it
matter. I mean ... Anyone could die tomorrow in a variety of ways and my
friends ... That is the last day for that soul. There will be no
second chance then. So we should live each day as if it is our last. Let's
look at some other things Jesus shared about this.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the Angels
of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of
the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were
eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that
Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away;
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
The Supper of the Lamb Bible Concern
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb Warning
What does Jesus mean by His return being compared to the Great flood of Noah's time? He means that people will be complacent and satisfied. Having no problem following the trends of man's world. Everything will appear normal.
Unprepared for what is coming:
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and
the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be
taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in
what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have
suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think
not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath
made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord when he cometh shall
find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord
delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and
drink with the drunken;
50 The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh
not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with
the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
While Jesus was sharing these Parables ... Some of the Religious leaders
at the time tried to question Jesus to try and "entangle Him in His talk"
... At one point, the Sadducees which do not believe in the resurrection
... Asked him a question.
24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no
children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his
25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when
he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto
26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.
27 And last of all the woman died also.
28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the
seven? for they all had her.
See in Jewish customs, if a man was married and he died, his brother had
to marry the wife of the dead brother. So they wanted to see what Jesus
would say in this hypothetical scenario created because they did not
believe in the Resurrection of souls. Here is what Jesus responded ...
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do
err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in
marriage, but are as the Angels of God in Heaven.
31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not
read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God
of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
Jesus said that these Religious leaders did not comprehend the Scriptures
correctly (Who would of thought that could happen, huh?) Jesus said when
one soul, of a married couple dies. The marriage ends. Let that be the
reason these words are spoken ... Till death do us part.
After the Marriage Supper of the Lamb we are eternally His. So, all of
those stories which depict one showing up in Heaven and being reunited
with their husband or wife and the marriage continues, Jesus made it very
clear, in Heaven, there are no marriages.
We become as Angels and serve the Lord. We become the Spiritual Bride
The Supper of the Lamb Bible Summary
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb Conclusion
So, we see that we are to be preparing ourselves for this Spiritual
wedding. We are engaged to Jesus and preparing to become His bride.
We are told by Jesus that those who are profitable servants while on
Earth, are going to become as the Angels of God. We will receive white
linen to wear and become as Saints.
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the
marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of
