They didn’t comprehend what Jesus had educated in the illustration of the workers in the grape plantation. Places of authority in God’s realm have a place with the individuals who have been so changed by the beauty of God that they are happy to be loathed and even aggrieved by the unbelieving scene and are eager to lead by serving others instead of being served by them. Devotees serve and pardon each other not to procure eminence or God’s courtesy for themselves, but since they have encountered God’s caring affection and absolution through their association with Christ Jesus. God’s merciful character is clear in the Old Testament yet shows up overwhelmingly in Jesus’ life, lessons, and service. ESV Gospel Transformation Bible prologue to Mark Global Good News.
