Abstract :
Many translations understand the father of the vineyard (parable in Luke 20,9-19) to think that he will send his beloved son to the vineyard workers because they possibly might accept him; this seems faulty reasoning on the part of the father. It seems better to re-read ἴσως (v. 13) in accord with its basic sense, which in turn allows the father a proper logic: 'they will give my son a treatment that is equal to his dignity as my beloved son'.
