The Parable Of The Tenant Farmers In The Vineyard

13 Said the owner of the vineyard, 'What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; perhaps they will respect him.' 14 But when the vinedressers saw him, they argued to themselves, 'Here is the heir, let us kill him, so that the inheritance may be ours.' 15 And they threw him outside the vineyard and killed him. Now what will the owner of the vineyard do to them?
