Parable of the Tenants

Luke 20:9-19  (ID: 1579)

As Jesus preached His final sermons, the crowds in Jerusalem sensed that a monumental event was approaching. The Pharisees, eager to discredit Jesus, sought to trap Him—but He turned the tables. His Parable of the Tenants confronted the Jewish leaders with core questions: Just who was Jesus, and what should one do in His presence? Alistair Begg shows us that these questions are as relevant now as they were then. When we hear Jesus proclaim His own authority, will we rebel or submit?
