Jesus is more than just a Prophet
« on: May 23, 2018, 06:38:47 AM »
Too many have overlook this parable.  Just got a chance to re-read it last night and I saw something I wanna share.

Mat 21:33 "Listen to another parable: There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a winepress in it and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and moved to another place.
Mat 21:34 When the harvest time approached, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his fruit.
Mat 21:35 "The tenants seized his servants; they beat one, killed another, and stoned a third.
Mat 21:36 Then he sent other servants to them, more than the first time, and the tenants treated them the same way.
Mat 21:37 Last of all, he sent his son to them. 'They will respect my son,' he said.
Mat 21:38 "But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other, 'This is the heir. Come, let's kill him and take his inheritance.'
Mat 21:39 So they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.
Mat 21:40 "Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?"
Mat 21:41 "He will bring those wretches to a wretched end," they replied, "and he will rent the vineyard to other tenants, who will give him his share of the crop at harvest time.

In this picture,

1. The landowner is God, the Father.

2. Jesus is the Son and heir.

3. The servants are the prophets that were being sent.

Jesus is the heir. He's not the servant in this parable. Servants are messenger of God.  But as the heir, He is legal entitled to the property or rank as the owner.

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."
