Matthew 21:38-41

Context
21:38 But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, ‘This is the heir. Come, let’s kill him and get his inheritance!’ 21:39 So 1  they seized him, 2  threw him out of the vineyard, 3  and killed him. 21:40 Now when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?” 21:41 They said to him, “He will utterly destroy those evil men! Then he will lease the vineyard to other tenants who will give him his portion at the harvest.”

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so” to indicate the implied result of the tenants’ decision to kill the son in v. 38.

2 tn Grk “seizing him.” The participle λαβόντες (labontes) has been translated as attendant circumstance.

3 sn Throwing the heir out of the vineyard pictures Jesus’ death outside of Jerusalem.
