THE PARABLE OF THE WICKED TENANTS
The Parable of the Wicked Tenants has the characteristic of being both historical and predictive. It is historical because Jesus told the history of Israel as God sees it. It is predictive because the Lord revealed precisely what was going to happen to Israel: the nation was going to reject the Son of God. And because of their rejection, God will transfer the responsibility of the kingdom to other people.
The parable is found in three gospels: Matthew 21:33-46, Mark 12:1-12 and Luke 20:9-19. Instead of reading the biblical text, I will tell the story in my own words. It goes like this.
