God's Son Rejected and Killed

Mark 12:1-13

Meaning:

  • The vineyard OWNER represents God the Father
  • The vineyard represents ISRAEL
  • The tenant farmers represent the JEWISH religious leaders
  • The journey taken by the land owner represents OLD TESTAMENT HISTORY
  • The harvest represents a future day when God expects a SPIRITUAL harvest
  • The “beloved son” represents JESUS

God’s patience towards man’s REBELLION

God’s plan to SEND His Son

God’s judgement against man’s UNBELIEF
