During the final days before his crucifixion, sometimes called Holy Week referring to the time between Palm Sunday and Easter, Jesus had some important last words for his followers. He also had a few sharply worded exchanges between himself and the Jewish leaders. The Parable of the Wicked Tenants is a brilliant illustration of who Jesus is and also made a prophetic statement about what God was about to do.
Note: For what it’s worth, I really enjoyed preaching this sermon. I can’t take credit for it; what Jesus does in this passage is awesome! -Pastor Clark Bunch
