The idea of karma is what’s reflected in a parable Jesus told. Jesus’ story is this: The landowner planted a vineyard, leased it to some tenants, and left. When the harvest time came, he sent his people to collect the produce, but the tenants refused them and beat, killed, and stoned them. So, as a final attempt, the landowner sent his son. But they killed him.

The question is then asked: Now when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?

And the answer is given: He will put those wretches to a miserable death.
