Luke 20 is the twentieth chapter of the Gospel of Luke in the New Testament of the Christian Bible. It records the teachings of Jesus Christ, especially under the questioning of the groups of Pharisee and Sadduccee.[1] The book containing this chapter is anonymous but early Christian tradition uniformly affirmed that Luke composed this Gospel as well as Acts.[2]



This chapter can be grouped (with cross references to other parts of the Bible):

Parable of the Wicked Vinedressers[edit]

The Wicked Husbandmen from the Bowyer Bible, 19th century.

This parable of Jesus, also known as the Parable of the Wicked Husbandmen, found in three of the four canonical gospels (Luke Luke 20:9–19, Mark Mark 12:1–12, and Matthew Matthew 21:33–46), and in the non-canonical Gospel of Thomas. It describes a householder planting a vineyard and letting it out to husbandmen, who failed in their duty. This parable was about chief priests and Pharisees and was given to the people present in the Temple during the final week before the death of Jesus.
