Parable of Ten Virgins


Dear Rabbi

Jesus told a parable about 10 virgins, some who didn’t have enough oil when the bridegroom came at midnight. Can you please explain what is meant by this part of the marriage tradition?





  1. I resending you the answer that was sent to you on the 22nd of April as I assume that you did not receive it.

    I do not know. The parable of Ten Virgins is a Christian one and Just Ask! is a site for questions pertaining to anything to do with Judaism. I think that you might be better served by asking your question to a Christian resource.
