The parable of the wicked tenants

English

Reading 3, 1 Tim 6: 13-16 : Obey the commandments

13 In the presence of God who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession,
14 I charge you to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ;
15 and this will be made manifest at the proper time by the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
16 who alone has immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.


Gospel, Lk 20: 9-16 : The parable of the wicked tenants

9 And he began to tell the people this parable: "A man planted a vineyard, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country for a long while.
10 When the time came, he sent a servant to the tenants, that they should give him some of the fruit of the vineyard; but the tenants beat him, and sent him away empty-handed.
11 And he sent another servant; him also they beat and treated shamefully, and sent him away empty-handed.
12 And he sent yet a third; this one they wounded and cast out.
13 Then the owner of the vineyard said, `What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; it may be they will respect him.'
14 But when the tenants saw him, they said to themselves, `This is the heir; let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.'
15 And they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them?
16 He will come and destroy those tenants, and give the vineyard to others." When they heard this, they said, "God forbid!"
