Here Comes the Judge: The Parable of the Murderous Tenants – Mark 12:1-12

In Mark 12:1-12 Jesus tells the Parable of the Tenant Farmers. He has just refused to answer the religious leaders’ question regarding his credentials. They wanted to know by what authority he said and did those things, particularly the clearing of the temple. The fact that Jesus is referring to them as the murderous tenant farmers doesn’t skip their understanding, and the implications extend to us today.
