The Parable of the Vineyard and the Vinedressers(A)

33 “Listen to another parable: There was a certain landowner who planted a vineyard and built a wall around it. He dug a winepress in it and built a tower. Then he rented it to vinedressers and went into a distant country. 34 When the season of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the vinedressers to receive his fruit.

35 “The vinedressers took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another. 36 Again, he sent other servants, more than the first. And they did likewise to them. 37 Last of all, he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’

38 “But when the vinedressers saw the son, they said to themselves, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance.’ 39 So they caught him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him.

40 “Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vinedressers?”

41 They said, “He will severely destroy those wicked men and rent his vineyard to other vinedressers who will give him the fruits in their seasons.”

42 Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:

‘The stone which the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone.
This is the Lord’s doing,
    and it is marvelous in our eyes’[a]?

43 “Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing its fruits. 44 Whoever falls on this stone will be broken to pieces. But on whomever it falls, it will crush him.”

‘the stone you builders rejected,
    which has become the cornerstone.’[a]

12 There is no salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

  1. Acts 4:11 Ps 118:22.

19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the entire building, tightly framed together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God through the Spirit.

For also it is contained in the Scripture,

“Look! I lay in Zion
    a chief cornerstone, elect, precious,
and he who believes in Him
    shall never be put to shame.”[a]

Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious. But to those who are disobedient,

“The stone that the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone,”[b]


“A stone of stumbling,
    and a rock of offense.”[c]

They stumble because they are disobedient to the word, to which also they were appointed.
