    I want to emphasize the importance of reading the Isaiah passage to have a good understanding here. When we got hear in my class we took a trip over to Isaiah for the whole class to discuss this. Word count here does not all for it at this time.

    MLD,

    You’ve done a very nice job pointing out how Jesus revealed himself as the One spoken of in the OT.

  3. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    I have been showing in these middle chapters that Jesus is terminating his relationship with Old Israel and establishing it with his New Israel – the Church. This seems to be a good passage show how this ends. The vineyard is the people of God tended by the Jews. They held responsibility for all that is contained in being Israel, including God’s love and promises. They not only failed, but betrayed their responsibility and benefactor. Jesus through this parable is announcing that the vineyard is being removed and assigned now as the new Israel — the Church.
    Praise be to God.
