Bible verses about Religious Leaders
(From Forerunner Commentary)

Matthew 21:41-42

Jesus purposes to show the religious leaders the justice of taking away their national privileges and punishing them by destroying their city and nation. Had He stated this at first they would have ignored him, but by using a parable, He forces them to condemn themselves with the truth. However, they still do not grasp the significance of their admission. Jesus expresses the principle by quoting Psalm 118:22-23, making them see that God would do to them what the landowner did to the vinedressers. The cornerstone—Jesus Christ—is the foundation of God's Temple, the church, but the builders rejected it because Jesus did not "fit" their preconceived idea of the Messiah (Romans 9:33; I Peter 2:7). Even though the Jews rejected Jesus, God overruled them and made Him "the chief cornerstone" (Ephesians 2:20), an act proven to be God's doing by the resurrection and the subsequent miraculous founding of the church (Acts 4:11).
