Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 22:4

_ _ my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready; come unto the marriage — This points to those Gospel calls after Christ’s death, resurrection, ascension, and effusion of the Spirit, to which the parable could not directly allude, but when only it could be said, with strict propriety, “that all things were ready.” Compare 1 Corinthians 5:7, 1 Corinthians 5:8, “Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us; therefore, let us keep the feast”; also John 6:51, “I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread which I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 22:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 22:4

Fatlings — Fatted beasts and fowls.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 22:4

Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and [my] fatlings [are] (a) killed, and all things [are] ready: come unto the marriage.

(a) The word used here is commonly used in sacrifices, and is by translation used for other feasts also: For feasts and banquets usually began with sacrifices.
