Reading along with us in Luke? Here’s today’s reading:

Luke 20 (ESV)

One day, as Jesus was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes with the elders came up and said to him, “Tell us by what authority you do these things, or who it is that gave you this authority.” He answered them, “I also will ask you a question.

    The chapter ends with Jesus posing a question of His own. And in it reveals that David’s son can also be the Son of God as well….

  2. I was thinking the same thing about the parable of the tenants. Israel has killed the prophets and now God has sent his son and they will kill him too.

    “What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? He will come and destroy those tenants and give the vineyard to others.”

    It’s interesting in reading Luke, how you can see God’s message for the Gentiles. We read in Luke 4 last night about Jesus mentioning God sending his prophets to the widow and to heal the leper, both Gentiles, and how angry those in the synagogue became
