My Insights from the Bible
Jesus' Destiny Revealed
And he began to speak to them in parables. "A man planted a vineyard and put a fence around it and dug a pit for the winepress and built a tower, and leased it to tenants and went into another country. When the season came, he sent a servant to the tenants to get from them some of the fruit of the vineyard. And they took him and beat him and sent him away empty-handed. Again he sent to them another servant, and they struck him on the head and treated him shamefully. And he sent another, and him they killed. And so with many others: some they beat, and some they killed. He had still one other, a beloved son. Finally he sent him to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.' But those tenants said to one another, 'This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' And they took him and killed him and threw him out of the vineyard. What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the tenants and give the vineyard to others. Have you not read this Scripture: 'The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes'?" And they were seeking to arrest him but feared the people, for they perceived that he had told the parable against them. So they left him and went away. (Mark 12: 1 - 12 ESV)

A parable showing the fate awaiting Jesus
We learn in the Bible that many of the Scribes and Pharisees hated Jesus because He didn't mince words exposing their hipocricy and evil. The message of this passage was directed at them but Jesus also spoke of His death and resurrection to His disciples. At least three times He warned them about the coming events. But each time they did not understand or were afraid to ask questions.
Jesus death and resurrection was planned ahead of time by God. Unfortunately there are many today who blame the Jews for Jesus' death because they were mainly responsible. However it was ultimately God's plan for His Son to die on a cross, to save us from the penalty of our sin so we can have eternal life.
God did not make the Scribes and Pharisees hate Jesus but used their evil plot for good to bring life and hope to all who are willing to accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
