Psalm: 21


Matthew: In this parable, one of the sons obeyed his father – it was the one who had said he would not go into the vineyard. This son was representative of “prostitutes and tax collectors”; whereas the other son who said he would go but did not represented the chief priests and elders – these are the ones who give God (the father in our story) lip service. This is not the first time this imagery shows up in Scripture – Isaiah speaks of it some 700 years before. (Isaiah 29:13)

Gospel: Matthew 21:33-46

New Testament: 2 Peter 3:11-18

Old Testament: Amos 4:6-13
