A Kingdom Lost

A vineyard. Tenants. Slaves beaten, a son killed.  Jesus both sums up Israel's history and foretells His own death.  More than that, He foretells the end of all those faithless leaders of God's people, and the birth of His Church!  A bad day for the priests and elders and Pharisees; a great day for believers in Jesus!  Don't celebrate too soon, though!  Jesus' warning is one for us too!  Day in and day out, churches and believers are making the same mistake made by those Pharisees and priests and elders of old.  Are we bringing God the fruit we owe Him when He comes looking?  How do we respond when called out?  That tells more about our future than we realize.  From Matthew 21:33-46.
