Slide 1

One day, Jesus was teaching in the temple. The chief priests and the leaders of the people did not like the things which Jesus had been doing and were questioning his authority. – Slide 1

Slide 2

‘Listen to this story,’ Jesus told them. ‘There once was a man who planted a vineyard and built a wall around it. – Slide 2

Slide 3

‘After he had finished building the wall, he dug a pit for pressing out the grape juice. – Slide 3

Slide 4

‘Then he built a watchtower. – Slide 4

Slide 5

‘When everything was finished, he rented the vineyard to tenant farmers and moved abroad. – Slide 5

Slide 6

‘The tenant farmers began working in the vineyard. – Slide 6

Slide 7

‘When the harvest time came, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his share of the crop. – Slide 7

Slide 8

‘The tenants seized his servants; they beat one, killed another, and stoned a third. The owner sent other servants to them, more than the first time, and the tenants treated them the same way. – Slide 8

Slide 9

‘Finally, the vineyard owner sent his son. “Surely they will respect my son,” he thought. – Slide 9

Slide 10

‘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.” – Slide 10

Slide 11

‘So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.’ – Slide 11

Slide 12

Jesus then asked, ‘When the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?’ – Slide 12

Slide 13

‘He will bring them to a wretched end,’ they replied, ‘and he will rent to other tenants, who will give him his share of the crop at harvest time.’ – Slide 13

Slide 14

Jesus replied, ‘Don’t you remember reading this verse in the Scriptures? ‘The Rock the builders threw away became the cornerstone, the most honoured stone in the building! I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit.’ – Slide 14

Slide 15

The Jewish leaders wanted to arrest Him then and there for using this illustration, for they knew He was pointing at them—they were the wicked farmers in His story. But they didn’t grab Jesus as they were afraid of the crowd. So they left Him and went away. – Slide 15
