'Great Spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds' - Albert Einstein
1 For the kingdom of the heavens is like a
who went out early [in the morning] to hire
2 When he had agreed with the workers [to be paid] out of [ek] a denarius [genitive], [for] the day, he sent them forth into his vineyard.
3 Going out also about the 3rd hour, he saw others standing unemployed in the marketplace,
4 and to those he said, 'You also, go into the vineyard, and whatever is just I will give you.'
5 So off they went. Again he went out about the 6th and the 9th hour and did likewise.
6 But, about the 11th [hour] he went out and found others standing, and he said to them, 'Why have you been standing here all day unemployed?'
7 They said to him, 'Because nobody has hired us.' He said to them, 'You too go into the vineyard.'
8 When it became late, the Lord of the vineyard said to his foreman, 'Call the workers and pay them their wages, proceeding from the last to the first.'
9 When the 11th hour [ones] came, they each received a denarius.
10 So, when the first came, they concluded they would receive more; but they also each received a denarius.
11 On receiving it they began to murmur against [kata] the householder [genitive from kata]
12 and said, 'These last [ones] did one hour, still you made them equal to us who bore the burden of the day and the burning heat!'
13 But in reply to one of them he said, 'Fellow, I do you no wrong. You agreed with me [wages] [Greek thinks it is cool to leave 'obvious' words out] of a denarius, did you not?
14 Take what is yours and go. I want to give to this last [one] the same as to you.
15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I want with my own [things]? Or is your eye wicked because I am good?'
16 In-this-way the last [ones] will be first, and the first [ones] last (Matthew 20).
Account starts Matthew 19:23 and ends Matthew 20:16. This is the only symbolic part.

Multiple Designations: Man, Householder, Lord of Vineyard.
Let us start with the event symbolism of this parable. The obvious first reaction is to relate the Proselyte call made at Pentecost during the 3rd hour of the day and the Samaritan call made during the 6th hour of the day and the Gentile Call to Cornelius made during the 9th hour of the day to the calls made at the same hours in this account. This is correct for the event symbolism.
|Day||Time period of the First Christian church, the congregation of Elijah 1 (John the baptist) the congregation of FDS1|
|Man, Householder, The Master of the Vineyard||Jesus|
|Standing||Repentant, faithful, ready to be spirit baptised|
|Marketplace||The Temple. Attending the congregation meetings|
|Vineyard||True Congregation of FDS1|
|Unemployed||Not baptised in water|
|Denarius||Citizenship of the Kingdom of God in heaven (the blessing of the 1NC). A heavenly Sabbath Day's wage. 'Denarius' means day's wage in Latin.|
Kingdom of God
|Whatever is just||
Ransomed by Jesus, sanctified in holy spirit, angelic life.
|First call for a denarius a day||
The baptism in water of John (not a sanctification), starting in 29Nisan.
|Second call at 3rd hour||Proselyte call into the new covenant, Acts2, 33Sivan5, Pentecost (made at the 3rd hour of the day).|
|Third call at 6th hour||Samaritan call to be sanctified into the new covenant, 34Shebat (made at the 6th hour of the day).|
|Fourth call at 9th hour||Gentile call to be sanctified into the new covenant, 36Tishri (made at the 9th hour of the day)|
|Fifth call at 11th hour||Into Bilhah, the ELC covenant mediated by Paul. Many of these joined TCC1.|
|Burning Heat||Physical Jews who became Christians were persecuted by the Physical Jews who did not. A persecution due to jealousy.|
15 These [people] are, in fact, not drunk, as you suppose, for it is the 3rd hour of the day (Acts 2).
In fact, Jacob's fountain was there. Now Jesus, tired out from the journey,
was sitting at the fountain just as he was. The hour was about the 6th.
7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her: Give me a drink (John 4).
3 Just about the 9th hour of the day he saw plainly in a vision an angel of God come in to him and say to him: Cornelius! (Acts 10)
30 Accordingly Cornelius said: Four days ago counting from this hour I was praying in my house at the 9th hour, when, look! a man in bright raiment stood before me (Acts 10).
The 11th hour guys are paid before the 1st hour guys because the resurrection into the Kingdom of God as humans works in reverse order. The first ones (plural), who complain get a response to only one of them from the householder:
13 Fellow I do you no wrong. You agreed with me for a Denarius, did you not ? (Matthew 20)
This Yes/No question means that at least one of the first ones did not agree this, in the word symbolic meaning. Compare these two scriptures:
1 For the kingdom of the heavens is like a man, a householder, who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard.
33 Hear another illustration: There was a man, a householder, who planted a vineyard and put a fence around it and dug a winepress in it and erected a tower, and let it out to cultivators, and traveled abroad (Matthew 21). (The story involves two fathers and two sons - ed)
The Successive Designations Principle tells us that the account splits into two word symbolic accounts. One for the designation 'man' and the other for the designation 'householder'. Now the word 'man' distinguishes one fulfillment from the other, so one fulfillment does not involve men, so it involves angels. So the two word symbolisms, are one for men and the other for angels (born again men).
|A man||Abraham, the father of the water baptised congregation|
|Master of the vineyard||Jesus|
|Man in charge||Melchizedek (Or possibly Gordon)|
|Denarius||Priesthood in the Kingdom of God|
|Vineyard||True congregation, with some sanctified members|
|Marketplace||The temple, attending the congregation|
|Unemployed||Unbaptised in water|
|Standing||Ready for water baptism (repentant)|
|First call||Baptism into Moses through the sea & cloud & law|
|About 3rd hour call||John the Baptist - Elijah 1 - FDS1|
|About 6th hour call||Paul - Elijah 2 - FDS2|
|About 9th hour call||Russell - Elijah 3 - FDS3|
|About 11th hour call||Ritchie - Elijah 4 - FDS4|
|Day||Abraham’s day from 1943 BC to 2008 AD|
|Evening||Kingdom of God|
Jesus was impaled at the third hour, then a darkness fell at the 6th hour and he died at the 9th hour, when the darkness ended and memorial tombs were opened. So the darkness in this symbolism is between FDS2 to FDS3, which is Christendom, the Christian Babylon period. Moses was sanctified and so was the line to Jesus (both sides - Mother and Father).
The big picture is:
Jesus answered: There are twelve hours of daylight, are there not? If anyone
walks in daylight he does not bump against anything, because he sees the light
of this world.
10 But if anyone walks in the night, he bumps against something, because the light is not in him (John 11)
So what happened on the 1st 2nd 4th 5th 7th 8th 10th and 12th hours of the day? A man who sees the light of this world (who is Jesus Christ) and who walks, is sanctified. 12 hours, 12 tribes, 12 gates, 12 apostles, 12 sons of Jacob, 12 pearls, 12 foundation stones. These are 12 calls to be sanctified. Each hour is a call. The householder is The Aaronic priesthood and then FDS1, FDS2, FDS3, FDS4. The first ones, who received a Denarius, complain:
12 These last put in one hour’s work, still you made them equal to us who bore the burden of the day and the burning heat (Matthew 20)
The expression: '11th hour solution' is used everywhere today, meaning a last minute solution, and it stems from this parable.
But the 11th hour is not the last minute, because the 11th hour is not the last hour of a 12 hour day, the 12th hour has this position in a 12 hour day. Understanding this is a key to understanding this parable. The eleventh hour workers worked two hours, the 11th and the 12th. They worked from 4 pm until 6 pm. 'The last ones' were therefore not the 11th hour workers but the 12th hour workers who bore the burning heat of Armageddon, and the burden of the day of Jehovah (the great and fear inspiring one) being the great crowd. In the parable, the first hour guys bear the day and heat because they work all day in the heat. So in the symbolism, their travails are ‘made equal’. Here it is:
|Day of Abrahamic covenant|
|Late||na||Kingdom of God|
|Denarius||3x||Administrative authority in the second Eden on earth, the Kingdom of God on earth as a human, the sabbath resting of the Lord.|
|Vineyard||5x||True congregation with some sanctified members|
|Workers||3x||Christians (1NC, water baptised and sanctified).|
|Standing||3x||Faithful (but not necessarily repentant - Ephraim is from the world).|
|Unemployed||na||Unsanctified (unbaptised in spirit)|
|Marketplace||1x||Attending the congregation meetings|
|Master (of the vineyard)||1x||Jesus the head of the congregation|
|Man in charge||1x||Me (possibly Melchizedek) in Kingdom of God|
God, the father of the spirit baptised congregation,The Householder of the 3 worshipping arrangements of the Jews, and of FDS1, FDS2, FDS3, FDS4 - His vineyard
House of Aaron:
|0th hour workers||Those sanctified with the inferior wine of Cana, sanctified before Peter was called, before the first miracle at Cana, washed in holy spirit but not into the new covenant.|
|1st hour workers||
Reuben, Jewish call under house of Aaron in 29Heshvan29, 30x after Jesus was circumcised on 2Heshvan29 BC, on the 8th day after his birth on 2Heshvan21 BC the temple ratio prophecy. 29Heshvan29 was the 7th day of the marriage feast of Cana
|2nd hour workers||Simeon, Proselyte call 33Nisan16. A call to the house of Aaron, to proselytes of Moses to join the 1NC. First responders were baptised on 33Sivan5|
House of FDS1 (appointed 33Nisan17 over all saints, it was appointed to feed them on 29Tishri10)
|3rd hour workers||Levi, Samaritan call to the sons of Jacob in the worship house of Samaria, 34Shebat, under FDS1|
|4th hour workers||Judah, Gentile call 36Tishri, first made under FDS1 to 136Tishri under FDS2|
|5th hour workers||Dan, Jewish call 65Tishri, to sons of Jacob independent of worship house, to enter the ELC|
House of FDS2 (appointed to feed the saints in 66Tishri and appointed over the saints on 69Nisan17)
|6th hour workers||
Naphtali, Gentile call, in 72Tishri, under FDS2, to enter the ELC.
|7th hour workers||Gad, Proselyte call still under FDS2 to those in the congregation of TCC2 to be sanctified into HLC|
|8th hour workers||Asher, Samaritan call to the sons of the 1AC outside TCC2 to enter into the HLC|
Before FDS3 is appointed and after FDS2 has become a false church
1887Iyyar10, when Russell was sanctified, starting the presence to 1917Nisan10, to all those who were not physical sons of Israel. A kind of antithesis to the first presence new covenant beginnings. The call was plainly outside any FDS appointment and is therefore not listed as an hour of call. Also Leah had Judah only once so this must be a continuation call.
Don't know when it started. But it was a call into TCC3. HLC helpers for the second presence 1NC Kings. 2Chronicles30 shows that sons of Asher turn up for Hezekiah's Passover?
House of FDS3 (appointed/installed to feed the saints in 1914Heshvan2/Chislev21 and appointed/installed to rule over the saints on 1918Iyyar22/Tammuz11)
|9th hour workers||Issachar, 1914Chislev29 - 1974Chislev29, Jewish Call to the greater Worship house of Judah, those worshipping as Jews who are spiritual virgins, i.e. have not joined a false church and brought someone to baptism into that church. This is in order that those first will also be last. They can enter into the JWs at any time up until 1997Elul28. It must be a 60 year call so that Jesus is born in 1974 according to the pattern of the 3rd holy spirit.|
|10th hour workers||
Zebulun, Proselyte Call, in 1918Iyyar22 - 1948Iyyar22 to be 1NC saints and 1NC reserves, to all spiritual virgins in the Watchtower who had been water baptised and so were sons of Abraham through the 2AC, sons of Isaac through the ICC. Obviously they must join the Watchtower before the end of the call.
House of FDS4 (appointed to feed the saints in 1994Nisan)
|11th hour workers||
1997Tishri2-2002Tishri2, 60 month Manasseh, 'Proselyte' call under FDS4 to ICC spiritual virgins to be 2NC saints
|12th hour workers||
2001Nisan-2009Ab, 100 month Ephraim, 'Samaritan/Gentile' call to 1AC spiritual virgins to be 2NC saints
Leah had 4 children (Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah), then Bilhah Rachel’s maidservant had two (Dan, Naphtali), then Zilpah Leah’s maidservant had two (Gad, Asher) then Rachel had two (Joseph who dropped out and was replaced by Manasseh and Ephraim, and Benjamin). These women stand for covenants as follows:
|Leah||1NC, New Covenant|
|Rachel||2NC, Newer Covenant, 2nd new covenant|
|Bilhah||ELC, Earthly Lord Covenant. Helper covenant to the second new covenant|
|Zilpah||HLC, Heavenly Lord Covenant. Helper covenant to the first new covenant|
See . The first hour guys do indeed get a Denarius. This is entrance into the second Eden on earth as a perfect human. The 3rd hour, 6th hour and 9th hour workers are not said to get a Denarius, and many of them do not, they get something else, 'whatever is just' heavenly citizenship:
4 You also go into the vineyard and whatever is just I will give you (Matthew 20).
The 11th hours workers do get a Denarius.
The above is a pretty complete understanding of Matthew 20. We have basically reached the ocean floor as regards the depth of the symbolic meanings of the bible in the case of this parable - we think!
