  • How many were sleeping when the bridegroom came?
slide13

The arithmetic of this parable is chilling. The ten virgins obviously represent members of Christ's Church, for all were invited to the wedding feast and all knew what was required to be admitted when the bridegroom came. But only half were ready when he came. (Elder Dallin H. Oaks, CR April 2004, 6)

slide14

Why was the Lord so ‘mean’?

  • What does the oil represent?
  • D&C 45:56-57
slide15

"I believe that the Ten Virgins represent the people of the Church of Jesus Christ and not the rank and file of the world... The foolish virgins were not averse to buying oil. They knew they should have oil. They merely procrastinated...

“In the parable, oil can be purchased at the market. In our lives the oil of preparedness is accumulated drop by drop in righteous living. Attendance at sacrament meetings adds oil to our lamps, drop by drop over the years. Fasting, family prayer, home teaching, control of bodily appetites, preaching the gospel, studying the scriptures‑‑each act of dedication and obedience is a drop added to our oil with which we can at midnight refuel our exhausted lamps."

(President Spencer W. Kimball, Faith Precedes the Miracle, pp. 253‑56)

slide16

Why was the Lord so ‘mean’?

  • What does the oil represent?
  • D&C 45:56-57
  • Oil = Conversion through the Holy Ghost
  • Vessel = Testimony of the Gospel
