Gospel: Luke 20:9-20 (Lent 5: Series C)

Your hearers are not first-century religious leaders in Israel. Neither are present-day pastors and church leaders. This is an important point for a sermon on this text, because Jesus is speaking to the people of Israel about their religious leaders. What he says in this parable has significance for us today, and needs to be preached. But the application is not direct and therefore should be done carefully.
