People's Bible Notes for Matthew 21:35


Mt 21:35 And the husbandmen took his servants. According to the obvious design of the whole parable, this is a lively figure for the undutiful and violent reception often given to the prophets or other divine messengers, and the refusal to obey their message. See Mt 23:29-31 23:34,37 Lu 11:47-50 13:33,34. Compare 1Th 2:15 Re 16:6 18:24. Killed another. Some of the prophets were not merely maltreated, but actually put to death.
