In Matthew 25: 1-13, Jesus tells a parable about ten virgins. The parable is a picture of Christians and of the church. They were invited to a wedding party, and all ten really hoped to attend the wedding party. When the Bible talks about weddings and that we are all invited there, the wedding party is used as a picture of heaven. Five of the virgins were wise and five were foolish. All ten had their own lamps, which in the Bible are often symbolized by the Word of God.
