The Hope Canteen Podcast, Episode 24: The Parable of the Tenants in the Vineyard

Matthew 21: parable of the tenants

This week, we look at the parable of the tenants in the vineyard (Matthew 21:33-46). This is a challenging parable because Jesus uses it to speak pointedly against those who oppose him for misplaced religious reasons. This parable leads us to ask why it’s important to remember why we have been given responsibility in God’s world.

In this episode, we’re talking about Jesus’ parable of the workers in the vineyard. He tells the story of a landowner who goes out to hire workers at different times during the day. When it comes time to pay them, they are shocked that the landowner pays them all the same amount. Even those who only worked an hour receive a full day’s wages.
