The Lord Returning From the Wedding

Luke 12:36
IV. Luke 12:3636And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. (Luke 12:36). It is asked whether this verse coincides, or is to be connected, with the parable of the virgins in Matt. 25. It would rather seem to be a comparison to show the responsibility of the saints and the grace of the Lord; but it is not a history or prophecy thrown into parabolic form, as we have in Matt. 25, and therefore a comparison with the virgins would be apt to mislead.
