Bible story: The wicked tenants

Creative activities based on the Bible story of The wicked tenants

The Parable of the Wicked Tenants is a story told by Jesus in Matthew 21:33-44, Mark 12:1-11, and Luke 20:9-18. In this parable, a landowner leases his vineyard to some tenants, but they refuse to give him the portion of the harvest that he is due. The landowner sends several of his servants to collect the harvest, but the tenants mistreat and kill them. Finally, the landowner sends his own son to the vineyard, hoping that the tenants will respect him, but they end up killing him as well.

This parable teaches us about God's relationship with Israel and the rejection of Jesus by the religious leaders of his time. It also speaks to the responsibility that we have as tenants of God's creation and the consequences of rejecting God's call to stewardship and responsibility.
