The scribes fail again
They don`t ensure justice is respected. They allow for the weak to be unjustly crushed and then almost do the same with the Son of God that was about to be stoned out of jelousy - rooted in misunderstanding the inheritance he was talking about was not the earthly one. Again they stop not out of the rightful fear of the Lord but of their eartly craving for power - they are afraid of losing people`s recognition and thus their powerful high role should the numerous people who understood the message take the defence of Jesus against them. They are subject to the whims of the people and dont administer Justice that is rooted in Christ/God. If Justice was truly made, justice on earth would be ensured. And in fact at the end - although it`s the will of the Father that this should happen - people condemn Jesus. A powerful lesson. Condemned by all those who do not for a reason or anoher saw in Him the Justice he was bringing and that Pilate, like the scribes, follow instead of being a good leader who brings the people to God. He sees his innocence but follows the crazy crowd. Not to lose power? and the people who did not get the message about the real Kingdom and hoped in political freedom - instead of freedom from sins - disappointed by him blindly sway towards their oppressors. Putting more faith in eartly power than in the Power of God. Lack of Faith.

The Parable of the Tenants

He began to tell the people this parable. "A man planted a vineyard, and rented it out to some farmers, and went into another country for a long time. At the proper season, he sent a servant to the farmers to collect his share of the fruit of the vineyard. But the farmers beat him, and sent him away empty. He sent yet another servant, and they also beat him, and treated him shamefully, and sent him away empty. He sent yet a third, and they also wounded him, and threw him out. The lord of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my beloved son. It may be that seeing him, they will respect him.'
"But when the farmers saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, 'This is the heir. Come, let's kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.' They threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do to them? He will come and destroy these farmers, and will give the vineyard to others."
When they heard it, they said, "May it never be!"
But he looked at them, and said, "Then what is this that is written,
'The stone which the builders rejected,
the same was made the chief cornerstone?'
Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces,
but it will crush whomever it falls on to dust."
The chief priests and the scribes sought to lay hands on him that very hour, but they feared the people--for they knew he had spoken this parable against them.
