The only heir is Jesus

Like Isaiah, Jesus uses the image of the vineyard that could have been so beautiful, but then he tells of evil tenants: the Jewish leaders, who produced no fruit. The mistreated servants in the vineyard are the rejected prophets; the son who is murdered, the only heir, is Jesus. The listeners must surely have understood it that way.

Pastor of this weekend: Ben Frie SJ
