The Parable of the Defiant Tenants

Pastor Babij exposits the parable of the vineyard and defiant vinedressers in the Gospel of Mark as he identifies four characters in the parable: the vineyard owner is the Father, the vineyard is Israel, the vinedressers are the leaders of Israel, and the son is Jesus Christ. Pastor Babij also discusses three characteristics of God displayed in this parable: God’s longsuffering towards sin, God’s boundless mercy, and God’s severe judgment against sin.
