"...the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that produces the fruits of the kingdom."
(Mat:21:43)

Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost

The Parable of the Wicked Vinedressers

Mat 21:33 "Listen to another parable. There was a landowner who planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, dug a wine press in it, and built a watchtower. Then he leased it to tenants and went to another country.
Mat 21:34 When the harvest time had come, he sent his slaves to the tenants to collect his produce.
Mat 21:35 But the tenants seized his slaves and beat one, killed another, and stoned another.
Mat 21:36 Again he sent other slaves, more than the first; and they treated them in the same way.
Mat 21:37 Finally he sent his son to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.'
Mat 21:38 But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him and get his inheritance."
Mat 21:39 So they seized him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him.
Mat 21:40 Now when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?"
Mat 21:41 They said to him, "He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and lease the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the produce at the harvest time."
Mat 21:42 Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the scriptures: 'The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord's doing, and it is amazing in our eyes'?
Mat 21:43 Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that produces the fruits of the kingdom.
Mat 21:44 The one who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; and it will crush anyone on whom it falls."
Mat 21:45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they realized that he was speaking about them.
Mat 21:46 They wanted to arrest him, but they feared the crowds, because they regarded him as a prophet.
"
