Workers in the vineyard P.4 group 4
His parable was spoken directly to the disciples to teach them about God’s graciousness and the Kingdom of Heaven, yet this story of God’s grace and justice still applies to us today.
The people are mad at their wage and blame Jesus
the angry people asked for the same amount of wage
Jesus then reminds them that " so those who are last will now be first and those who are first will now be last"
The people are mad at the wage because the people who worked one hour got the same wage when they worked all day in the scorching heat
He wants us to learn about how we should not be jealous but humble and not forget our promises
Jesus wants us to be grateful for what we have and to not be greedy.

translate this word, ya sah, which can be roughly translated, ‘you who are doing the
shouting’”. P. 361
In a Middle Eastern village there is a designated corner where people wait to
be hired. The practice continues to this day. It is a humiliating position to be in —
unemployed and in full public view.

What Jesus wants us to learn from this parable
Jesus wants us to learn that we are all equal and are valued at the same level
that we all get the same reward no matter how much work we, we all get to go to the kingdom of God after what we do what is required
