The Master's Son

January 22, 2023 Preacher: Ryan Brice Series: The Gospel of Mark

Passage: Mark 12:1–12

Main Idea: The Father reveals Himself most fully to us through the person and work of His Son.

The Enduring Patience of God on Display

  • 1,12 And he began to speak to them in parables. “A man planted a vineyard and put a fence around it and dug a pit for the winepress and built a tower, and leased it to tenants and went into another country…And they were seeking to arrest him but feared the people, for they perceived that he had told the parable against them. So they left him and went away.
    • Isaiah 5:1, 2
  • 2–5 When the season came, he sent a servant to the tenants to get from them some of the fruit of the vineyard. And they took him and beat him and sent him away empty-handed. Again he sent to them another servant, and they struck him on the head and treated him shamefully. And he sent another, and him they killed. And so with many others: some they beat, and some they killed.
    • Jeremiah 7:25, 26
    • Hebrews 11:32–38
    • Isaiah 5:3, 4
    • 2 Peter 3:9

The Unfailing Love of God Made Manifest

  • 6 He had still one other, a beloved son. Finally he sent him to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’
    • John 3:16
  • 7, 8 But those tenants said to one another, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’ And they took him and killed him and threw him out of the vineyard.
    • Romans 5:8
    • 1 John 4:10

The Righteous Judgment of God Personified

  • 9–11 What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the tenants and give the vineyard to others. Have you not read this Scripture:

“‘The stone that the builders rejected

    has become the cornerstone;

 this was the Lord's doing,

    and it is marvelous in our eyes’?”

  • Isaiah 5:5–7
  • Acts 4:5–12
  • 2 Peter 3:10

So What?

  • Fix your eyes on Jesus, the Son of God, who has provided the way for us to know God.
    • Hebrews 12:1, 2
