EXEGESIS PAPER 2 Exegesis Paper This exegesis paper is based on the book of Mathew 21: 33-46. It explores both the outer and the interpreted meaning of the written scripture. The paper also discusses briefly, the scripture before and after the focused scripture. It is worth saying that the biblical message has two meanings, the outer and interpreted meanings. The interpreted meaning depends on the interpreter's understanding of the biblical scripture and the target audience. For instance, the book of Mathew chapter 21 verse 33-46 talks about the cruel actions of the farmers employed to work in a vineyard. However, the interpreted meaning of this scripture focuses on people who rejected the Messiah and concentrated on their evil deeds. The Matthean passage has the surface and deep meaning. The surface meaning Literary highlights the wicked tenants and the deeper meaning involves the house of Israel. A parable refers to a story that has a hidden meaning. It is believed that only individuals that hear and interpret the parables are the ones with "spiritually open ears." The parables of Jesus refer to the parables that Jesus used to teach various lessons for future generations. It necessary to understand that parables have two layers including the surface and the deeper layer. For instance, the surface layer of the parable of the wicked tenants would be relating workers who are going astray with their master. The deeper meaning of this parable involves the manner in which the children of Israel have disobeyed God. C.H. Dodd attempts to address the eschatological problem in parables. His reading of Jesus's parables is controlled by the realized eschatology. This enables to detect the areas in which the evangelists have obscured what Jesus meant on his parables. It is worth saying that the major contribution of Dodd to the study of parables is his approach of "realized eschatology."

EXEGESIS PAPER 3 Isaiah 5 describes the song of the vineyard. In this passage, the vineyard yields bad fruits after being provided with all the measures necessary to yield good grapes. This passage is related to Mathew 21: 3-36 by expressing wickedness in the vineyard. Both the scriptures refer to the house of Israel' s evil deeds. Various scholars suggest that the Matthean passage is an allusion to Isaiah 5. The parable of the wicked tenants raises violence from the Pharisees because Jesus portrays them to be ill-treating as well as murdering Gods prophets. This is because the Pharisees had a clear understanding that the vineyard had been used to refer to the house of Israel. Context The scripture before this the passage is the parable of two sons. This scripture is narrated in verse 21-32 of chapter 21 in the book of Mathew. In this parable, Jesus narrates the parable of two sons who were sent by their father at different times to go and work in the vineyard. The first son denied to go, but he later went. The second son accepted to go and work, but he did not go.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
