What does Matthew 22:1 mean?

Jesus begins a third parable (Matthew 21:28, 33), presented in an exchange with priests, elders, and Pharisees gathered in the temple, along with others who are near. All three parables reveal how the Jewish religious leaders have failed to obey God on behalf of the people of Israel. In addition, they show that God will welcome others into His kingdom and relationship with Him.

The first parable described two sons (Matthew 21:28–32). One said no to his father's instruction but then obeyed. The other said yes and did not obey. Jesus was clear that the one who repented and obeyed did the will of his father. The second parable described some tenants of a vineyard who refused to give to the owner his share of the crops (Matthew 21:33–44). Instead, they mistreated and killed his servants and then his son. Soon the owner would come and kill the tenants and rent the vineyard to others.

Now Jesus will compare the kingdom of heaven to king who gave a wedding feast.
