Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Luke 20



Verses 1-47


1. His Authority Demanded and His Answer.(Luke 20:1-8)

2. Parable of the Wicked Husbandmen. (Luke 20:9-19)

3. Question about Tribute to Caesar. (Luke 20:20-26)

4. The Question Concerning Resurrection. (Luke 20:27-40)

5. The Question Christ Asked. (Luke 20:41-44)

6. Beware of the Scribes! (Luke 20:45-47.)

The events in this chapter are found in both Matthew’s and Mark’s Gospels. The parable of the vineyard foretells His death. He is the son, the beloved son, whom the husbandman cast out of the vineyard and killed. The rejected stone, which becomes the head of the corner (Psalms 118:22) is likewise Christ. Luke 20:18 shows the judgment which came upon the Jews nationally. Rejecting Christ, stumbling and falling upon that stone they were broken. It also shows the future judgment which will strike the Gentile world-powers at the close of the times of the Gentiles, when the Stone shall fall out of heaven and smite the image, which represents Gentile dominion (Daniel 2:1-49). Inasmuch as we have followed the different questions in Matthew and Mark, put to the Lord by the chief priests, scribes, Sadducees and Pharisees, to ensnare Him, no further annotations are needed here.
