The Original parable of the vineyard compared with the NT version and "The
man of judah his beloved plant"
SYNOPSIS:Christians should read, along with the church, the
OT readings prescribed for Great Lent. It is appropriate to read Isaiah,
because in describing the sins of the Jewish Nation and their consequences,
it outlines the human condition and the need for a Messiah, and indeed,
there are many important messianic prophesies in Isaiah. The original
parable of the vineyard is in Isaiah, and it is like the retelling of the
parable from our Lord in the Gospels, but also unlike it is some very
important ways. The end of the parable in Isaiah mentions the "Man of
Judah, His beloved plant", and in context, this is none other that a
prophesy of the need for and the coming of the God-man Jesus Christ.
