Wisdom’s banquet reminds us of the feast that Jesus told about in Matthew 22.
Peaceful protesters came from around the country but were always rebuffed by the hard words of the politicians and celebrities who spoke daily at the bridge.
Over the years, visitors to the platform grew. Eventually, the bridge was closed to through traffic due to the volume of tourists stopping to see the platform.
Now Christ conquers, and achieves his own ends, but he does so to some extent invisibly. His enemies in us and outside us seem to prevail. But he will bring forth judgment unto victory, in full view of all.
