Reflecting on the Gospel for the Twenty-Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

From The Gospel of Matthew by Curtis Mitch and Edward Sri, commenting on Matthew 21:40-41:

Jesus asks what the landowner should do to the tenants. With great irony, the chief priests and elders, who in the parable are represented by the tenants, unwittingly indict themselves: He will put those wretched men to a wretched death and lease his vineyard to other tenants. These self-condemning words from the Jewish leaders foreshadow their own punishment, since their role as caretakers for the Lord’s vineyard will be given to others.
