Jesus’ authority had been challenged so He told the parable of the tenants (Luke 20:9-18). The tenants rejected the son of the vineyard owner … as the leaders would reject the Son of God. On this day we grieve … but we live in hope because we know that Sunday is coming.
A series on the parables of Jesus will take us through Lent. In the parable of the barren fig tree, we are reminded that our God is a god of grace, truth and second chances. Is your life bearing fruit? What will you give up, and what will you take up, for Lent?
