Matthew 21:33-46 | The Parable of the Tenants

In this text, Jesus gives another parable to the religious leaders. This parable describes a good master who planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, did all the work and have everything set up for the tenants. All the tenants had to do is show up and reap its fruit. Once in a while, the master would send servants to get some of his fruit. However, the tenants beat and killed the servants that came to gather some of the fruit. The master then sends his son to gather the fruit, and again they beat and killed him.  This parable is meant to show the goodness of God. The tenants represent the religious leaders who time and time again rejected, beat and killed the prophets that were sent by God. This is also a foreshadow of the eventual crucifixion of Jesus.  God wants us to experience the love and blessings he has for us. All we need to do is place our faith in Jesus and when the time comes where we stand before God, we'll get to spend eternity in heaven with Jesus.
