God's Self-Portrait

Mark 12:1-12


Man is always longing to know the nature and character of God.

And it seems man is always coming up with some smaller self-defined image of God. But “caricatures” of God are idolatry, when you make up your own image of God, after your own personal version of who you think He should be.

Jesus said, If you want to see God, look at Me. He said, I and the father are one. If you’ve seen Me, you’ve seen the father.”

The parable of the generous landowner in Mark 12, gives us a clear picture of God. In it, Jesus used a situation that was common in His day.

He then began to speak to them in parables: “A man planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a pit for the winepress and built a watchtower.

Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and went away on a journey. At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants to collect from them some of the fruit of the vineyard.

Mark 12:1-3
