The Parable of the Tenants
Have you ever been in situation where someone unexpectedly takes charge? What gave them the right? Jesus is taking charge as if he is in a position to do so. He explains why this is the case. The parable of the tenants is a story of judgment, but in God’s economy, judgment means life for the world. Judgment ends in great salvation, tragedy unfolds into comedy, a ruined vineyard becomes productive again and the castaway stone becomes the head of the corner. It is marvelous in our eyes!
