Jesus taught the people in the Temple. He told this story against the religious leaders. “A man planted a vineyard with grapevines.
He rented that vineyard to some farmers. Then he went away. At harvest time he sent his servant to collect some payment. But the tenants beat the man and sent him away with nothing. The man sent many other servants to collect his rent. The tenants beat some of them. They killed others. Last of all the man sent his son whom he loved. But the tenants killed him too. What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.” The wicked leaders were like the tenants in the vineyard. They did not love God. They refused to receive His messengers, and they wanted to kill Jesus too. Mark 12:1-12; Matthew 21:33-41; Luke 20:9-16 http://globalrecordings.net
