Revolutionary Jesus (a sermon on the parable of the tenants)

The parable of the tenants (Luke 20:9-19) is the parable in which Jesus speaks most strongly about himself, claiming to be “son” and “cornerstone”.

It’s also an unrepeatable parable, inseparable from its historical context of Jesus’ attack on the Jerusalem temple system.

So, while it’s an immensely important part of Jesus’ teaching, it’s almost impossible to abstract and apply to ourselves.

Here is the sermon.

The revolutionary call and the revolutionary community. These small group materials pick up where the sermon leaves off. The two studies give a sense of how different parts of the New Testament relate to each other, and how the early Christians elaborated on the teaching of Jesus.
