The parables were for the Jews since they didn't want to listen to Jesus' truth, Mat 13. So, last night while talking to my wife about the Ten Virgins (Matt 25) I received a thought about who they are representing. I've always had issues with them being "Christian" because 5 are "I never knew you" so they're not saved. Clearly the oil is the Holy Spirit, but what could it mean. That's when the thought came that the Ten Virgins represent Israel and the Church, Israel and false Christians who "prayed" the prayer but never let it come into their heart, Mar 4, having received the light, but only the head understanding and not the heart belief.
