VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. An end to the original husband men
"He will come and [utterly] put an end to those tenants and will give the vineyard to others."
The original husband men are the Jewish leaders. Synagogue is not a part of GOD's institution in the Old Testament, it's a part of human institution. If you will notice in the Old Testament, there's the (a) tabernacle, (b) temple, (c) sanctuary, (d) altar but never was there a verse in the Old testament for synagogue.
GOD's instituted or institution of worship:
a. Tabernacle - instituted by GOD thru Moses
Exodus 25:9 (Amplified Bible)
25:9 And you shall make it according to all that I show you, the pattern of the tabernacle or dwelling and the pattern of all the furniture of it.
b. Temple - instituted by Moses and used by the prophets
1 Samuel 3:3 (Amplified Bible)
3:3 The lamp of God had not yet gone out in the temple of the Lord, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was lying down
c. Sanctuary - instituted by Moses and strengthened by major and minor prophets
Exodus 15:17 (Amplified Bible)
15:17 You will bring them in [to the land] and plant them on Your own mountain, the place, O Lord, You have made for Your dwelling, the sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands have established.
d. Altar - very first institution of worship that GOD established, through the hand of Noah
Genesis 8:20 (Amplified Bible)
8:20 And Noah built an altar to the Lord and took of every clean [four-footed] animal and of every clean fowl or bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
