In the parable of the tenants, what did the tenants want to hog and keep for themselves only? Even to the point of murder?

As with many parables, the parable of the mean and murderous tenants is a short story meant to convey numerous lessons. God taught Jesus simple tales, then Jesus told them to us.

So, what did the tenants want to hog and keep for themselves only? Not just power thus money, but specifically a whole lot of grape vines, a watchtower, and a winepress! Yes “drug crops” and “drug manufacture & distribution.” Yes, Jesus chose to use ‘winepress,’ as in wine; that stuff he said to drink in remembrance of him. Yup, that same stuff that appeared in what is said to be his first miracle.

Various people will scoff at the idea God or Jesus chose winepress on purpose. Whatever, let them scoff. Your mission is to promote legalization, promote legalizers — in particular LEAP.

Is this a commandment to drink alcohol? Only in the mischaracterizations others use to describe us Christians Against Prohibition.
