Triumph Over Jewish Leaders
This morning Pastor Richard preached on the above subject based on Mark 11:27 to 12:34. The Jewish leaders tried to trap Jesus by asking him religious, political and social issues, however, they were unable to trap him. They were angry with him for teaching as well as claiming to be Son of God.
In the parable of the vineyard, the vineyard represented Israel, and the servants sent to collect rent represented the prophets some of them were killed like the prophets sent by God. The master was God, and the son he sent represented Jesus. Yet even God's Son who was sent to Israel was killed by them. However, God was a patient God, he forgave the Israelite, even sending His son to died on the cross for their sins.
After the service
As this is the 4th day of Chinese New Year, most Church members stayed behind to greet each other "Happy New Year", and to fellowship.
