I'm second guessing reading all the gospels together, because it's been too easy to think "I've read this story before there's nothing new." But each gospel writer gives us a slightly different flavor in their recording of the story. But today, I'm struggling...
I do like the fact that tin the story of the wicked farmers (vv. 9-19) the religious leaders finally "got it." Jesus was referring to them in this story.
Last year I read the Old Testament in chronological order, based on the NKJV Chronological Study Bible by Thomas Nelson. Over and over I read how Israel failed to live for God and how they turned their backs on Him and served the gods of the people around them. How it must have broken God's heart. But then the Holy Spirit reminds me, how many times have I turned my back on God and served the gods of this world. Too many times. But just like He did for His people Israel, He does for us today. All we have to do is confess and He forgives. Such a glorious God we serve, He never gives up on us.
