End of a journey



mosShe was Moses. 80 years of being Moses. For the past 50 years she led them through the desert on their journey to the chosen land, and now this upstart, had the temerity to speak about the alternate way to the Promised Land.
Her hegemony was under challenge. What better way than to ensure this young lad leaves the caravan and discover his own journey in the desert.
Ralph had recently joined the caravan. It was rumored they were all escaping slavery of another kind.  He too managed his escape from the mundane to enter this esoteric world of travelers. Although none were known to him, gradually he began making friends with members of the troupe as they trudged along night after night.
It was one night, as all were at rest after a long and arduous journey, he lay his head and felt discomfort. He dug in the silence of the night, and soon found the compass of a lost civilization.
At daybreak he tried using it and soon learnt how to help others find their way with its help. Until then, Moses was the only one; the chosen one who would guide and all had to follow her instructions. Now when it came to light, that a few thought they knew the way ahead, this upset Moses .  How could her leadership be challenged. She had to keep her fold intact. The only way was to expel this lad, and ensure there would be No further Challengers.

Gospel according to Matthew 21:33-43.45-46


J
esus said to the chief priests and the elders of the people: 
"Hear another parable.  
There was a landowner who planted a vineyard, put a hedge around it, dug a wine press in it, and built a tower. It was after marriage,he realized 
his wife was deprived of inheritance. Properties in his hometown were acquired in a win-win situation. Then he leased it to tenants and went on a journey. The homeless were allowed to build shelter on his land and care for his plantation.When vintage time drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants to obtain his produce. Then came the Land Bill that gave Rights to Tenants. But the tenants seized the servants and one they beat, another they killed, and a third they stoned. He had his Estate Manager visit the land to collect the produce. They would not let him enter. Again he sent other servants, more numerous than the first ones, but they treated them in the same way.When all his men were driven away. Finally, he sent his son to them, thinking, 'They will respect my son.' He personally visited in the hope that they will recall his benevolence in providing them shelter. But when the tenants saw the son, they said to one another, 'This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and acquire his inheritance.'But they armed with swords, gathered in numbers, and threatened to slay him on his own land. They seized him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What will the owner of the vineyard do to those tenants when he comes?" They answered him, "He will put those wretched men to a wretched death and lease his vineyard to other tenants who will give him the produce at the proper times."  
He had No choice, but to walk away forsaking all.
