The attractive tale of the marriage customs of Israel in Messiah’s time and the way He fulfilled those traditions in calling out His bride, the Church. A outstanding and encouraging instance of scriptural good judgment and magnificence.

We shall live on with the Lord in His Kingdom and eternity. Our Bridegroom has indeed prepared a wonderful place for us. How marvelous that "We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed". ) Now when the Lord comes for us, we are to have oil lamps ready and waiting. Oil in the Bible is the Holy Spirit, and we are to have the oil and be ready to travel even in the dark of night. The parable of the ten virgins (Matt. 25:1-13) is correctly applied to the Kingdom, but has marvelous application to this wedding story.
In verse 28, He announced that the cup was His blood of the New Covenant ("testament" and "covenant" are the same word), and that it is shed for the remission of sins. Obviously, this fulfilled Jeremiah's announcement of the New Covenant—the covenant which would forgive sins. It's interesting to consider that the New Testament itself is our copy of the contract. Should anyone accuse you of sin, you need only show him your copy of the contract to prove that your sins are forgiven. Should the devil himself accuse you, and Satan is the "accuser of the saints", quoting the terms of the New Testament will settle the matter.
I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:1-3). Jesus is in heaven now, preparing our place, and we are in the waiting period. True, we grow impatient for His return, but then imagine how impatient that young bride must have been! People who plan to be married don't like waiting around, especially if they can't even see each other! Probably, in the old days, there were a few violations during the waiting period and people must have thought they had a violation in the case of Joseph and Mary.
