S1:E41 EPISODE SUMMARY

In this episode, Lindsey and Adam discuss Matthew 21: 33 – 46. Jesus tells a parable of a landowner who leased his vineyard to tenants. But when the landowner tried to collect the produce, the tenants killed his servants and even his son! What will that landowner do?

Does this parable challenge our understanding of a nonviolent God and universal salvation? Lindsey and Adam find hope and a call to responsibility in a parable often interpreted violently, warn against anti-Semitic readings, and discuss the authority of violence versus the authority of Love.
