When It Became Apparent That Jesus Would Suffer a Death Sentence...

    Jesus was the messiah but something horribly went wrong.
    The wicked tenants of the land (the Holy Land) killed the Son of God--God who said in the parable, surely, they won't kill my son.

    There are two parts to Jesus' ministry as the Jewish messiah: before and after the wicked tenants concluded no matter who the owner of the Promised Land would send, the wicked tenants were going to kill the messenger, and likely the owner too, had he shown up.

    Similar to the way God put the tree in Eden with inevitable consequences, if the Temple authorities came to the point where they would kill him, the Messiah's life, ministry, and anointed kingship of the Kingdom of Heaven/Righteousness would have a horrible turn. In Platonic fashion, the reality (the thought) happened before it manifested. Once the reality, the thought was concluded, then it could be picked up by God and by Jesus. Then, Jesus turns from the Kingdom of Righteousness and Heaven turns to the reality of the Jewish Messiah under a death sentence, rejected by Jewish authorities. The free will of Jewish authorities overrules the plans of God and the messianic aspirations of Jesus.

    Jesus started off as the Messiah but the tenants of the Holy Land, Jewish authorities, killed him.

    Transforming Jesus from one issuing in a theocratic victory to soley a spiritual messiah is not that for which Jesus campaigned in the first half of his ministry.

    I have no idea what the point or meaning of this is. It's very difficult to read too. Tortured syntax and bordering on incoherent. Could you simplify?

    Crazy people can't be bothered to edit.

    Basically, it is a telling of Jesus's ministry using the Parable of the Wicked Tenants. Without knowing the reference, the OP would be challenging.

    The Parable of the Wicked Tenants

    There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country: And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

    And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

    But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

    When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

    Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

    Also without a good grasp of the Jewish Revolt, the OP would be challenging.

    Basically, "Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you..." refers to Rome taking the kingdom of God from his people, practically in 70 AD.
