Capon demonstrates how Jesus' message of divine judgment, in contrast to the notions of both his enemies and his friends, is always presented against the backdrop of grace. Indeed, Capon argues, the key to the parables of judgment is inclusion before exclusion, acceptance before judgment: grace ever remains the sovereign consideration.
