Forming faith to convert our hearts healing our uneducated souls.
He began to speak to them in parables. “A man planted a vineyard, put a hedge around it, dug a wine press, and built a tower. Then he leased it to tenant farmers and left on a journey. At the proper time he sent a servant to the tenants to obtain from them some of the produce of the vineyard. But they seized him, beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. Again he sent them another servant. And that one they beat over the head and treated shamefully. He sent yet another whom they killed. So, too, many others; some they beat, others they killed. Mark 12: 1-5
Tobit 1:1-2; 2:1-9, Psalm 112 & Mark 12:1-12
Jesus has just finished asking and denying an answer to the Scribes and Pharisees of whether or not John’s Baptism was of heavenly origin or human origin because they refused to say an answer rightfully sending Jesus into one of His many parables to bring across His message for “they look but do not see and hear but do not listen or understand.” Matthew 13:13b
What they fail to see is described to them as the Parable of the Tenants where the Tenants are the religious leaders of Israel failing to recognize the Christ as from Heaven and not of human origin making the path ever so clear to Paradise can be only achieved through the Son of Truth. The servants represent the messengers of God including the One and Only Son Who upon conferring the Truth upon them in miracles was denied soon to the point of death eliminated by jealously captivated by fear. Matthew 13:14-15 Jesus sheds Light on their rejection forming faith to convert our hearts healing our uneducated souls.
“Isaiah’s prophecy is fulfilled in them, which says: ‘You shall indeed hear but not understand you shall indeed look but never see. Gross is the heart of this people, they will hardly hear with their ears, they have closed their eyes, lest they see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and be converted, and I heal them.”
Humanity was given the ability to overcome sin by the Cross of Salvation where the New Israel would lend a path to faith, hope and love by works we live in charity. Here, a transfer if you will is completed at the end of the son’s death of jealous murderous tenants hired to watch over the vineyard of life forgiving all transgressions allowing a New Israel to be born from forgiveness’s love. We see it in our own walk denying God even to the point of death finding in the end the strength of a converted heart sustaining life by the Salvation of the Cross.
What they denied in Jesus Jesus described as the “cornerstone rejected” as a fulfillment of David’s Psalm and Isaiah’s foretelling. “The Stone that the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone; by the LORD has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes.” Jesus is the Cornerstone of Humanity’s Salvation from sin and the Foundation of all Truth. Will you deny Him no more?
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to never deny You or Your messengers surrendered to Your Son of Truth. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has our constant prayers.

Guide me by Your fidelity and teach me, for You are God my Savior, for you I wait all the day long.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,

Salvation is the Cornerstone rejected and denied– Mark 12:1-12
Human or Heaven began His talk
Scribes and Pharisee began to balk
The origin they knew obviously not
As Jesus denied the answer by the Tenants Talk
The Parable of the Wine Tenants took them by storm
The Truth was given to them by God’s Own form
Where the owner left his vineyard to grow
In selfish hands of sin God would eternally show
God sends the people His servants of Truth guide
Humanity rejects them killing them as spies
Respecting not even the Son whose miracles complied
Salvation is the Cornerstone rejected and denied
Wonderful Truth as evident in our eyes confide
