Hi everyone, so this week we're studying the parable of the vineyard:

Luke 20:9-18: wrote:

9He went on to tell the people this parable: "A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time. 10At
harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him
some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent
him away empty-handed. 11He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed. 12He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out. 13"Then the owner of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him.' 14"But
when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over. 'This is the
heir,' they said. 'Let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' 15So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. "What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? 16He
will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others." When
the people heard this, they said, "May this never be!" 17Jesus looked directly at them and asked, "Then what is the meaning of that which is written:
" 'The stone the builders rejected
has become the capstone[a]'[b]? 18Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed."
Footnotes:

a. Luke 20:17 Or cornerstone
b. Luke 20:17 Psalm 118:22

In particular, last night my small group discussed v.18 at length, and we shared different interpretations. Just wondering, what are your thoughts on this verse - who is being referred to, what does it mean "to fall," "be broken," and "be crushed"?
