Castaway?

And returning to the city early in the morning, He [Messiah] became hungry.

And seeing a single fig tree by the way,
fig tree a symbol of Israel Now learn the parable from the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see all these things happening, know that it is near, at the door. Amen, I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things happen. Mark 13:28 -30
He [Haiashua, Yeshua] came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it,Let no fruit grow on you ever again [eis aiōn].” And immediately the fig tree withered. Matthew 21:18,19 (TS98+)


“Listen to another parable. There was a master of a household who planted a vineyard. He put a hedge around it, dug a winepress in it, and built a tower. Then He leased it to some tenant farmers and went on a journey.

Now when fruit season drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his fruit.

But grabbing his servants, the tenants beat up one, killed another, and stoned still another.

Again the master sent other servants, even more than the first, and they did the same thing to them.

Finally he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’

“But when the tenants saw the son, they said among themselves, ‘This is the heir! Come on, let’s kill him and get his inheritance!’

So grabbing him, they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.

Therefore when the master of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?”

“He will bring those miserable men to a miserable end,” they said to Him, “and will lease the vineyard to other tenants, who will give him his share of the fruits in their seasons.”

Haishua said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures? ‘The stone which the builders rejected, this has become the chief cornerstone. [Isaiah 28:16] This came from Adonai, and it is marvelous in our eyes.’

Matthew 21:33-42


Drawing near to Him, a living Stone – rejected indeed by men, but chosen by Elohim and precious –

you also, as living stones, are being built up, a spiritual house, a set-apart priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to Elohim through יהושע Messiah.
Because it is contained in the Scripture, “See, I lay in Zion a chief corner-stone, chosen, precious, and he who believes on Him shall by no means be put to shame.”
This preciousness, then, is for you who believe; but to those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner-stone,”
and “A stone of stumbling and a rock that makes for falling,” who stumble because they are disobedient to the Word, to which they also were appointed.
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a set-apart people, a possession, that you should proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light,
who once were not a people, but now the people of Elohim; who had not obtained compassion, but now obtained compassion.
1Peter 2:4-10


Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of Alohim will be [airō ] taken away [apo] from [humōn] you and [didōmi] given to a [ethnos] people producing its fruits. Matthew 21:43


SHEM TOB (TOV) (oldest preserved text of the Gospel according to Matthew, in the Hebrew) Matthew 21:43

to this (H2063) I (H589) command-answer (H561) to you (H3651) also you shall cut out (H7167) of Kingdom (H4438) of Heavens (H8064) from Highest Most-Elohim your (H5920) these you to give (H5414) to nations-goee (goy, gentile) (H1471) shall grant to them (H6213) sense of running wild (H6501 from 6500 to bear fruit)


Deuteronomy 31:26.27
“Take this scroll of the Torah, and place it beside the Ark of the Covenant of Haiah your Alohim. It will remain there as a witness against you, for I know your rebellion and your stiff neck." 

Whoever falls on this stone will be shattered; but the one upon whom it falls, it will crush him.”

When the ruling kohanim and Pharisees heard Haiashua’s parables, they realized He was talking about them. Matthew 21:44,45 (TLV)

And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. John 10:16
 
Abraham was chosen to become a great nation, which became Israel. It was always possible to enter the sheepfold (eg Caleb, the Kenezite - Numbers 32:12 entered the Promised land.).
Messiah now is speaking, to Yehudah, of a time when He will bring other people(s)

(He [Messiah] told them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the Good News to every creature. Mark 16:15)

to become His sheep and enter His kingdom.

Go ye therefore, and teach all [ethnos] nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit:[Not found in the Hebrew Shem Tob text]

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: Matthew 28:19,20

Let me sing of my beloved, a song of my beloved, about His vineyard. My beloved had a vineyard in a very fertile hill.

He dug it out and cleared its stones, planted it with a choice vine, built a tower in the midst of it, and even cut out a winepress. He expected it to yield good grapes, but it yielded worthless grapes.

So now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and people of Judah, please judge between me and my vineyard.

What more was there to do for my vineyard that I have not done? Why then, when I expected it to yield good grapes, did it yield worthless grapes?

So now, I will make known to you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge, and it will be eaten up. I will break down the fence, and it will be trodden down.

I will lay it waste: it will not be pruned or hoed, but briers and thorns will come up. I will also command the clouds not to rain on it.

For the vineyard of Haiah-Tzva’ot is the house of Israel, and the people of Judah the planting of His delight. He looked for justice, but behold, bloodshed, for righteousness, but behold, a cry! Isaiah 5:1-7


Isaiah describes a vineyard situated on one of the sunny heights visible from Jerusalem. Every care which an experienced vine-dresser could devise had been expended on it, but in vain. The vine-dresser himself is introduced, demanding if more could have been done. Alohim selected a nation (Israel) for high and quodesh work in the world and expended care and pain on the preparation of the instrument, and His plans miscarry through no failure on His part but through the obstinacy of the human soul, the measure of what might have been is the gauge of its doom. The worst weeds grow on the richest soil. This picture is the counterpart of Paul’s fear of being a castaway. His concern, may have been, that Israel, if cast aside, he being an Israelite, might be included.


Rather, I punish my body and bring it into submission, so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be rejected/ disqualified. 1Corinthians 9:27

Therefore, if you have been raised up with Messiah, keep seeking the things above—where Messiah is, sitting at the right hand of Alohim.

Focus your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

For you have died, and your life is hidden with Messiah in Alohim.

When Messiah, who is your life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him, in glory!

Therefore, put to death what is earthly in you— porneia {indulge unlawful lust (of either sex)}, impurity, lust, evil desire, and greed—for that is idolatry. Colossians 3:1-5

 Then He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will freely give from the spring of the water of life.The one who overcomes shall inherit these things, and I will be his Alohim and he shall be My son. Revelation 21:6,7
