Today’s heroes are the wise bridesmaids because they shows us the gift of preparation

Essential Teachers notes:
This story is very simple but the more you know about the culture of Jewish weddings the easier it is to understand the odd reaction of the groom at the end. The wedding, started with a betrothal, usually years before. The woman would remain at her father house and the groom would be expected to prepare a place to live for his new wife, this could mean literally building a new house. Once everything was ready the groom would set out for his bride, usually mid week. The grooms party would collect the bride from her father’s house where the physical part of the marriage would take place, often while the guests partied outside the door. The whole wedding would then make a procession to the grooms house, this was often done at night and special torches and lamps would be made. The celebration would continue for days after and the crowd may have been pretty huge. So imagine the groom, slightly tipsy, finding a group of girls arriving after the doors been locked. Why should he let them in? if they are friends they have shunned the main event, if not then they are interlopers hoping for a few days of free food and wine.
