Reflection 10th October 2020

Matthew 21: 33-46
The Parable of the Tenants

For our sermon we looked at the context of the parable. The parable was aimed at the Jewish leaders and was spoken during the last week of Jesus life. He had earlier asked them about John the Baptist and they refused to answer his question. So, he refused to directly answer them in return but instead spoke in parables.

Jesus made reference in the parable to tenants, mistreating the owner of a vineyard and mistreating his messengers, and finally killing the owner's son. Tenants had to look after their produce and when the parable was spoken there was much unrest within Palestine. So, the everyday imagery was easy to understand.

Gods people Isreal were also known as a "vineyard". The Jewish people were likened to a vineyard, planted and tended by God to bear fruit. The Jewish leaders would have known this imagery and as leaders they were responsible for tending to Gods people or vineyard. (See Isaiah 5: 7). Jesus was making reference to how they had persecuted the prophets (including John the Baptist). He also made one of his most clear claims to be more important than even the greatest of the prophets. He referred to himself as the son, and he knew that in only a few days' time he would be killed. He then spoke of how the one rejected would be a capstone, and how the Kingdom of God would be taken away from them and be given to a people who would produce fruit.

The gospel has now been taken to all nations and our salvation comes through faith. We considered how far we are bearing the kind of fruit that God expects from us. We have as the parable a God who gives us time and patiently endures, and also a God who gives us privileges with which come responsibilities.

Every blessing
Rev`d Theo Corney
