The target audience of this allegorical parable are the Jewish chief priests and elders, portrayed here as rejecting Jesus and his teaching, and as a consequence losing out on what God was offering them. It is a story of an opportunity presented and rejected, and they lose out in the process.
The parable is also a cautionary tale about the destructive effects of greed – doing violence to the rights of others and eventually destroying the greedy themselves.
The vineyard of the Lord is an image for God’s people. As we look at the vineyard we have been given, we can ask ourselves ‘are we good tenants?
