Sometimes we use religion to push our own narrative and we fail to honor God. But God's patience is limited; He will only warn us so many times before He will respond with justice. The Pharisees & Scribes, just like us, tried to take for themselves what could only belong to God. They wanted glory, honor, and power and killed the messengers God had sent (prophets). When He tries sending His own Son, they kill Him too, hoping to get His inheritance. In the end, God (the landowner) will come to destroy the religious leaders (the tenants) and give His kingdom (the vineyard) to those who will produce fruit for His glory. In the end, everything boils down to how we respond to Jesus.
