Husbandmen is very archaic. I would like to change this title to The Tenants of the Vineyard or The Wicked Tenents. DJ Clayworth 13:54, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

Husbandmen is however the more common title (because it is so 'archaicly' old - more people have been using it). I agree that its archaic, but I do not agree that Tenants of the Vineyard or Wicked Tenants are more common titles for the subject matter. Clinkophonist 12:31, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Husbandmen, while archaic, is nonetheless, historic and used in it's proper context. Study of the scripture should not lend itself to our convience, rather we should lend ourselves to it's understanding and allow the resulting growth be the fruit of our diligent and sincerely reseach. Not our intellectual or unconvicted analysis. 64.208.107.11 17:11, 29 August 2006 (UTC) CF Coopwood, 29August2006

Jesus was saying in essence: God planted his vineyard (the Church) here in the world; He put a hedge of protection around (His Church) just as he did with Job. He digged a winepress (an altar used for burnt offerings), built a tower (used for protection, the name of the Lord (His Name is Jesus) is a strong tower, the righteous run to it and they are safe), let it out to the He let it out to the husbandmen (the nation of Israel, the people of the Jews,especially the cheif priests and elders). God the Heavenly Father, sent his servants to receive of the fruit, the husbandmen which were the evil chief priest and elders beat one, killed one and stone another, (such as; they beat Jeremiah, killed Isaiah, and stone zechariah in the temple), However because of God's Grace and Mercy, Slow to Anger, he sent more servants than the first again they killed, beat and stone more prophets, they beheaded John the baptist, stoned stephen, and the like. God said I'll send my Son, (Jesus), they will reverence him. The evil elders, and chief priest said, This is the Heir, Come let us kill him and take his inheritance. What inheritance? The Chief Priest and Elders watched Jesus Heal the sick, they heard the Hosannas when Jesus was riding on a colt, and on an ass. They saw the people lye down palm trees saying, Hosanna to the Son of David, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, Hosaana in the Highest. They saw Jesus' Power, Miracles,Fame,& Autority,they wanted what Jesus inherited. So they Caught the Son, Killed him and Slew him, Jesus had six illegal trials in one night, he stood before the Cheif priests such as Caiaphas, Annas, the Sanhedrin, Pilate, Herod, Pilate. Charges were changed because the witness couldn't agree, Pilate found no Fault in Jesus, yet had him flogged and crucified. Jesus was wounded for our transgressions, he was brusied for our iniquities the chastisement of our peace was upon him and with his stripes we are healed. Just as many as there were appalled Jesus appearance was so disfigured beyond man, his form marred beyond human likeness. All Jesus bones were out of joint,who can explain the flogging, the loss of blood, the fever as he hung in the son, the beaten with the cat o nine tails, flesh ripped from his body, thorns placed in his head, the driven in his scalp. JEsus, Jesus, Jesus, Thank you Jesus.! Thank You heavenly Father, for your precious Son Jesus, and the precious Blood JEsus spilled for the sins of the world, known as the Lamb of God, as John describe. Yeap! theres good news, Jesus, conquered Death and Hell, and rosed again on the Third day, he is the Resurrection and the life!.And he is seated at the right hand of the Heavenly Father. He came as a lamb, and was beat, killed!, this time he return he's coming as a lion, whose going to rule with a rod of Iron. As it is appointed for man to die once and after this Judgement day! Harden not your heart, TODAY is the DAY OF SALVATION: What must I do to be saved? Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ whom our Heavenly Father sent. 98.134.92.77 10:46, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Cornerstone[edit]

Could the person who wrote this section below, when they have time, please

1) consult the wiki entry under "cornerstone" to first understand why Jesus used the term "cornerstone" and why the gospel writers were very careful to record that he used said term.

2) remove all references to keystones. All these references tell us is that there are some VERY ignorant people in the world.

It is NOT only NOT "universally interpreted" as "keystone", but rather, it is universally interpreted as cornerstone. That's what it says.

Please study a subject a bit more thoroughly before putting pen to paper, so that we can have more reliable information in wikipaedia. Contributing is fun, but do your research first....

The saying about the stone being rejected by the builders technically refers to a corner stone, but it is almost universally interpreted to mean a keystone, and without that meaning the saying has very little significance. As a keystone, it is essentially an allegory for people rejecting the single most important thing (without a keystone, an arch built from sections will collapse). Metaphorically, the saying, in the context of the Synoptics, is interpreted as a direct criticism of the priests for rejecting what was most important. Scholars are divided though, whether the stone is supposed to be Jesus himself, or whether it is just the teachings he gives. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.45.222.60 (talk) 12:10, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
