INTRODUCTION. These two parables, the rash builder and the king at war, are of- ten called twin parables because they were spoken by Jesus together and teach the same lesson–the cost of discipleship. The parables illustrate that discipleship has a price, and one needs to count the cost if he plans to follow Jesus. The first parable concerns the building of a tower–probably a tower in a vineyard from which a watchman could guard the vineyard. The second parable pertains to a king preparing for war. Jesus had previously warned his disciples regarding the perils they would face as they preached the gospel of the kingdom. • • • • To the twelve: "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves..." (Matt. 10:16) To the twelve: "But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake..." (Matt. 10:17-18) To the twelve: "And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake..." (Matt. 10:22) To the seventy: "...behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves." (Luke 10:3)
