Looking at the traditions of the Galilean wedding, we see parallels Jesus was using to communicate to his disciples about His covenant with his people. There’s commitment, pursuit, preparation and a waiting just as we await our groom, Jesus, for his return to get his bride.

John 14:2-3 

“In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.”
