Dickson 1 Nolan Dickson Fr. Michael Theology 2 7 December 2009 Laborers in the Vineyard Throughout the book of Matthew, Jesus is constantly using parables to explain the Kingdom of God. In chapter 20 verses 1 to 16, Jesus describes the kingdom with the Laborers in the Vineyard parable. The Laborers in the Vineyard has many meanings but the central theme is “to show that though the Jews were the first to be called in the vineyard, at length the gospel should be preached to the gentiles, and they should be admitted to equal privileges and advantages with the Jews.” (http://www.christnotes.org/commentary.php?com=mhc&b=40&c=20) The parable also can be interpreted in a more universal way and illustrate that God is no cheater to man and also “that many who begin last, and promise little in religion, sometimes, by the blessing of God, arrive a great deal of knowledge, grace, and usefulness.”(http://www.christnotes.org/commentary.php?com=mhc&b=40&c=20)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
