Jesus was a great storyteller, and many of His parables used the image of the vineyard. One such parable was a retelling of the Parable of the Vineyard told by the prophet Isaiah. The fact that Jesus retold this same parable should cause the people of God to pay special attention to these words from the prophet. The parable makes it very clear that God is looking to find the fruit of justice and righteousness among His people. Isaiah helps us to understand that biblical justice is an overflow of gospel righteousness. (Isaiah 5.1-7) September 19, 2021
