Matthew 21:33-46: The Parable of the Tenant Farmers

Jesus uses an Old Testament picture in order to tell a story to the religious leaders. In so doing, He acts like an Old Testament prophet who gets the religious leaders to pronounce their own judgement or verdict against themselves for their sin of refusing God and His messengers. This is a strong and public confrontation between Jesus and the religious leaders that teaches us much about God and how He chooses to work in human history.
