“‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone;And they were seeking to arrest him but feared the people, for they perceived that he had told the parable against them. So they left him and went away.
this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?”
Jesus ends the parable of the treacherous tenants by quoting this prophetic passage from the book of Psalms. The religious leaders understood what Jesus was saying about them.. that they were the wicked renters that killed the landlord's son.. yet they refused to repent of their treachery. These leaders were too arrogant to hear what God was speaking.
Yet it was so different for the many who walked with Jesus, saw the miracles, heard him teach and felt his compassionate touch. To these this man, rejected by the religious elders, had become the cornerstone of their faith. The ministry of Christ was a marvelous and magnificent thing to behold. Yet the person of Christ was even more marvelous.
You are beautiful beyond comprehension. Too marvelous for words. I am in awe of You!
