Matthew 22

The King invites His people to the wedding of His Son, but is rejected on several fronts. The mockers show their disregard for His authority. They would rather serve themselves than be under His authority. To confront their unwillingness to submit to the authority of the King, Jesus finally asks straight out, Who am I? The mockers agree he is human and a king, but they refuse to recognize His Divinity and, the fact that He is the King. Why? They would have to submit to His authority.
