In this episode, we consider the readings for Proper 22, Year A:
Exodus 20:1-4, 7-9, 12-20 & Psalm 19; Isaiah 5:1-7 & Psalm 80:7-14; Philippians 3:4b-14; Matthew 21:33-46.
We discuss how the decalogue is a revelation of Who God is, the prophetic imagery of Israel as God's vineyard, Paul's single-minded focus of following Jesus, and Jesus' parable of judgment on the vineyard.

Our outro music is an original song by our friend Dcn. Jeremiah Webster, a poet and professor whose giftedness is rivaled by his humbleness. You can find his published works, including After So Many Fires, with a quick Google.
