Context Readings

The Parable Of The Tenant Farmers In The Vineyard

6 The owner had one more person [left to send], his dearly loved son. [So] he sent him to them last of all, reasoning to himself, ' [Surely] they will treat my son with respect.' 7 But the tenant farmers said to one another, 'This is the heir [to the vineyard]. Come on, let us kill him and then the inheritance will be ours.' 8 So they took him and killed him and threw his body out of the vineyard.
