14th Sunday after Pentecost

No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by parables and said: “The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son, and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding.”’ But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his business. And the rest seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Therefore go into the highways, and as many as you find, invite to the wedding.’ So those servants went out into the highways and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good. And the wedding hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ For many are called, but few are chosen.”
Недеља 14. по Духовима

И нико се не попе на небо осим који сиђе с неба, Син човечији који је на небу. И као што Мојсије подиже змију у пустињи, тако треба Син човечији да се подигне. Да ниједан који Га верује не погине, него да има живот вечни: Јер Богу тако омиле свет да је и Сина свог Јединородног дао, да ниједан који Га верује не погине, него да има живот вечни. Јер Бог не посла Сина свог на свет да суди свету, него да се свет спасе кроза Њ.
И одговарајући Исус опет рече им у причама говорећи: Царство је небеско као човек цар који начини свадбу сину свом. И посла слуге своје да зову званице на свадбу; и не хтеше доћи. Опет посла друге слуге говорећи: Кажите званицама: Ево сам обед свој уготовио, и јунци моји и храњеници поклани су, и све је готово; дођите на свадбу. А они не маривши отидоше овај у поље своје, а овај к трговини својој. А остали ухватише слуге његове, изружише их, и побише их. А кад то чу цар онај, разгневи се и пославши војску своју погуби крвнике оне, и град њихов запали. Тада рече слугама својим: Свадба је дакле готова, а званице не бише достојне. Идите дакле на раскршће и кога год нађете, дозовите на свадбу. И изишавши слуге оне на раскршћа сабраше све које нађоше, зле и добре; и столови напунише се гостију. Изашавши пак цар да види госте угледа онде човека необученог у свадбено рухо. И рече му: Пријатељу! Како си дошао амо без свадбеног руха? А он оћуте. Тада рече цар слугама: Свежите му руке и ноге, па га узмите те баците у таму најкрајњу; онде ће бити плач и шкргут зуба. Јер су многи звани, али је мало избраних.
