But this is part of a parable, it is not meant to be taken literally.

One interpretation would be.

The nobleman who had gone away - Divine consciousness, God contact, man's higher self.

The citizens who would not have him reign over them - Material thoughts and desires.


"But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me."

Destroy the lower instincts and desires "before me", i.e. by actual contact with God and higher consciousness.
