The Vineyard Parable


Matthew 21:41-44 
41 “He will bring those wretches to a wretched end,” they replied, “and he will rent the vineyard to other tenants, who will give him his share of the crop at harvest time.”

42 Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes’

43 “Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit. 

44 Anyone who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed

Mark 12:9-12 
9 “What then will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others. 

10 Haven’t you read this passage of Scripture: ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; 

11 the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes’

12 Then the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders looked for a way to arrest him because they knew he had spoken the parable against them. But they were afraid of the crowd; so they left him and went away.

Luke 20:16-19 
16 He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.”
When the people heard this, they said, “God forbid!”

17 Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written: ‘The stone the builders rejected  has become the cornerstone’

18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.”

19 The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people.

The religious leaders would lose their role as ‘builders’ to the church.
