NET © Notes

sn The statement that the owner will come and destroy those tenants is a promise of judgment; see Luke 13:34-35; 19:41-44.

sn The warning that the owner would give the vineyard to others suggests that the care of the promise and the nation’s hope would be passed to others. This eventually looks to Gentile inclusion; see Eph 2:11-22.

tn Grk “they”; the referent (the people addressed in v. 9) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

sn May this never happen! Jesus’ audience got the point and did not want to consider a story where the nation would suffer judgment.
