Mathew 24 – Part 7 – Israel the Lord’s Vineyard

In approximately 722 BC, Israel the Lord’s vineyard was judged and destroyed by the Assyrian army according to the word of the Lord through Isaiah the prophet. In Mathew 21:3-45, Jesus applied Isaiah 5 to the Jews of the first century generation who had produced nothing but “worthless grapes”. As Israel was judged by a foreign nation in Isaiah’s day, the Jews of Jesus’ day would see a similar same fate – only final – in their generation. This would take place at the Lord’s coming in judgment upon Jerusalem and the unfaithful of Israel in AD70.
