The Parable Of The Tenant Farmers In The Vineyard

13 And the lord of the vineyard said, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son. Perhaps they will be made ashamed after seeing this man. 14 But when the farmers saw him, they deliberated among themselves, saying, This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, so that the inheritance may become ours. 15 And having cast him outside of the vineyard, they killed him. What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do to them?
