Matthew 22:5 - William Styles

Matt. 22:5, “But they made light of it.” Quoted as if it meant that sinners who do not forthwith give their hearts to God, make light of the Gospel Feast and refuse the offered provisions of salvation, and hence that men may and can reject Christ, and frustrate His grace if they will. But, like “The Barren Fig Tree” (explained on p. 114), the Marriage of the King’s Son is a parabolic account of the latter part of Israel’s national history. They made light of the temporal salvation, offered by Jesus and the disciples, and were visited with the awful doom referred to in verse 7. The latter part refers to the “common salvation,” and the language suits the case of those who are sovereignly called by the Gospel.
