Matthew Chapter Twenty-One

(Outline continues from yesterday)

  1. When the priests and elders would not answer Jesus, He went on to deliver three parables (Matt. 21:28-22:14).
  2. The Parable of the two Sons (Matt. 21:28-32) and the Parable of the Landowner (Matt. 21:33-41) both applied to 1st Advent events.  The priests and Pharisees responded with anger and murderous intentions (Matt. 21:42-46).

Matthew Chapter Twenty-Two

  1. The Parable of the Marriage Feast (Matt. 22:1-14) applies to 2nd Advent Millennial events.

Mark Chapter Twelve

  1. The Parable of the Vineyard Owner is only the fourth (out of four) parable recorded in Mark’s Gospel (Mk. 12:1-12).

Luke Chapter Twenty

(Outline continues from yesterday with points 1. and 1a. repeated)

  1. The Adversary certainly couldn’t stand for any serious teaching, or the true gospel message to be proclaimed.  Opposition to the Lord then came:
    1. From the chief priests, scribes, & elders (Lk. 20:1-19).
    2. Their spies posing as disciples (Lk. 20:20-26).
