The Sent Son

crossroads-series-gfx_facebook

This weekend at Eastbrook Church, as we continued the “Crossroads” series, I preached a message entitled “The Sent Son.” This message builds upon the previous weeks of the series (see “Lord of the Sabbath” and “The New Temple“) by exploring Jesus’ parable in Luke 20:1-19. This parable is sometimes known as the parable of the wicked tenants and at other times as the parable of the noble land owner. Either way, the parable’s central focus is really the sent son as a radical change of the prophetic metaphor found in Isaiah 5:1-7.

You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.
