Matthew 20:2. Agreement 19 Aug 2023

Mat 20:2 He made an agreement with the workers for one denarius a day and sent them to his vineyard.

Excerpt from THE NEW JERUSALEM BIBLE, copyright (c) 1985 by Darton, Longman & Todd, Ltd. and Doubleday, a division of Penguin Random House, Inc. Reprinted by Permission.

The landowner hires the workers. He is not the one who manages the vineyard. He just sends the workers. As if they are on their own.
The denarius holds the image of the Roman emperor (Luke 20, 24). Perhaps only useful for life in the Roman empire.


Jesus, thank you for trusting your workers.
