when no one accepted the invitation, the Diaspora people said Yes!!!

The proceedings that are represented in this parable are in full accord with the customs of those days. When the invitation of a feast, such as wedding and other celebrations was made and all was ready, the servants were sent with the ultimate notice to tell the guests to come and enjoy the festivity alone with the host, which in this case was a king. This parable points to us that the king had invited the aristocrats and nobles of his kingdom, but when he sent word through his servants to his guests to come, they refused. This action was somewhat of an insult to the Lord of the house.

This Lord of the house, which is the host of the banquet can only be a representation of God. In addition, the original guests are none other than the Jewish religious who relied on their own merit. Nevertheless, The second to be invited are sinners and Gentiles; in other words, the Diaspora of those days. These were considered outrights and outcasts, excluded from the kingdom of God. Certainly the Pharisees who first heard the parable immediately grasped that Jesus spoke of the kingdom of God and his rejection toward their actions. Also they were offended to see that Jesus claimed that the invitation to the kingdom would be given to sinners. It takes no greater insight to see that Jesus used as argument in his discussion with religious Jews this parable. Some scholars say that the great commission was given to the world, minus Israel. In other words, the Jewish people have been left out completely, out of the picture of salvation. (Glasser 2003)[1] Experts say that the church is the only one who has the opportunity of redemption. To this I disagreed, I belief that God still have love for the people he first ones chose to become the light of the world but failed. For this He sends his Son for whoever believes in Him, Jewish or Gentile, rich or poor, regardless of the color of his or her skin, God still have a place at the table for him or her.
