The Great Invitation


Language: English

Runtime: 65 minutes

Year Produced: 2013


The Kingdom of Rapture is buzzing with the news that the Prince, home from his travels, is engaged to a girl without wealth or title: a commoner. His father, the King, enthusiastically pronounces his blessing on the upcoming wedding. He sends the Royal Messenger throughout the Kingdom to issue personal invitations to the nobility of the land, only to be shocked and dismayed when the invitation is universally refused for the oddest reasons. Who will come to the banquet? Who will celebrate the union of the Prince and his chosen Bride?


A story of excuses, this is an interpretation of Jesus’ parable of the marriage of the King’s Son. The original text is found in Matthew 22 and Luke 14.
