Discussion for Luke 20

  • Zeingoff
    Who among you can understand parable, the way Jesus taught. A certain man is God. He let the vineyard to tribes of Israel. He sent forth the prophet whom the people despised. Lastly he sent his son Jesus, who they killed, hoping to gain his inheritance. But God will give it to those who are prepared.

    Stephede - When Jesus was teaching here - the Gospels hadn't even been heard of; none of the N.T. was even begun being written until about 15 yrs. after the church of Jesus was begun in Acts ch. 2. EVERYTHING Jesus taught was from the O.T. He said himself the "law, and the Prophets, and the Psalms testify of me". The 15 yrs. after the ch. began - the apostles taught from the O.T.
  • Stephede
    Luke 1 state that Jesus was in the temple(as was his habit, teaching from the gospel. He wasn't teaching The letters of Paul! He was teaching the Torah and the Prophets. The parable of the vineyard and the greedy husbandman shows how God, Father has always sent his elect to witness on earth, including Jesus, whom he raised from the dead, and still on earth their is wicked and greedy people.
