2013-06-30 Sermon on The Parable of the Tenants

Date 2013-07-01

Our sermon this week at Imprint Church in Woodinville was on the Parable of the Tenants from Matthew 21:33-46.

This is right at the end of Jesus’ life. He’s about to go into Holy Week. And something important to note is that the imagery of this parable actually points to a change of focus for Jesus and God’s plan that is in process.

In one sense, this parable is all about God’s mission. He’s had a mission since the beginning of time to use His people to bring about His plan in the world. But there’s a shift of focus on who will do that…

If we look closely, we will see that Jesus is shifting a focus of his people from Israel alone and He’s making way for the entire world to be given the responsibility to be His representatives in the world.
