In this passage from the book of Luke, we see the religious leaders questioning Jesus, trying to trap him in his words. He responds with a parable about evil vineyard tenants, representing the religious leaders and their ancestors who rejected and killed God’s messengers (the prophets), and who would ultimately reject and kill God’s own son, Jesus Christ. The challenge to the religious leaders is the same challenge that is put to us: what will we do with Jesus? Will we follow him as Lord, or will we reject him, as the religious leaders did.
