The Vineyard (Luke 20)

Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; perhaps they will respect him.’ But when the tenants saw him, they said to themselves, ‘This is the heir. Let us kill him, so that the inheritance may be ours.’ And they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? He will come and destroy those tenants and give the vineyard to others.

The vineyard is the Kingdom of God. The workers of the vineyard are the leaders of Israel. God sent prophets to Israel, they killed them. He finally sent them His own Son, they killed Him too. Most Christians aren’t aware of the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem in AD70. I believe God used his disciples to replace the leadership of the temple system and that he used the Roman army to destroy their temple within a generation of Jesus’ death, just like He said He would. Always take God at His word. Listen to Him, He has a beautiful vineyard to share, but it’s His vineyard.
