Part two of this series focuses on Matthew 25:5: “While the Bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.” Why is this verse even mentioned?

Jesus’ statement to the five foolish virgins, “I know you not,” is truly one of the saddest epithets in all of Scripture, but this is not the first time Jesus has uttered those words.
