Parable Of The Tenants

Satisfactory Essays
The Parable of the Tenants is only found in the three Synoptics. The three different versions of the parables are almost identical to each other. All three of these versions of the parable are about a land owner who rents out a vineyard to a group of tenants. These tenants decide not to pay their debt and force the owner to send servants to try to collect the tenant’s debt. These tenants then either beat up or kill the servants and force the owner to send his son, whom they kill, to try to collect the debt. Then Jesus asks the people will the owner do to the tenants, and he would answer by saying that the owner would kill the tenants. Lastly, all three gospels share the line that states, “the stone the builders rejected has become the capstone.”
