Laborers in the Vineyard
To many in the day of Jesus, his teachings regarding the Kingdom of God were unfair. Some categorized his teachings as backwards and upside down. It seemed like Jesus' teachings always favored the small, the weak, and the underdog. Those who wanted to be powerful, in first place or the greatest, just didn't get what Jesus was talking about. This is one of those parables that makes people complain "this is backwards" or this is "unfair".
- Matthew 20:1-16
