The Ten Virgins Mathew 25. Are the ten virgins representing the church or Israel?
If the ten Virgins represent Israel , and Abigail represents the bride of Christ, there is a passage in 1 Samuel 25 vs 42 that is interesting -
And Abigail hasted, and arose, and rode upon an ass, with five damsels of hers that went after her; and she went after the messengers of David, and became his wife.
The five damsels could be a shadow of the five wise virgins? - they came after Abigail – I think this could be a shadow of the bride going to meet the bridegroom, followed by the wise virgins ( Israel)
Another thought - Abigail also went after the messengers ( messengers could be shadow of the prophets foretelling us about Jesus coming for His bride) ?? I might be wrong but I would love to hear your thoughts on this?
