From Textus Receptus

  • 1 Now it happened on one of those days, as He taught the people in the temple and preached the gospel, that the chief priests and the scribes, together with the elders, confronted Him
  • 2 and spoke to Him, saying, “Tell us, by what authority are You doing these things? Or who is he who gave You this authority?”
  • 3 But He answered and said to them, “I also will ask you one thing, then answer Me:
  • 4 The baptism of John, was it from heaven or from men?”
  • 5 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ He will say, ‘Why then did you not believe him?’
  • 6 But if we say, ‘From men,’ all the people will stone us, because they are persuaded that John was a prophet.”
  • 7 So they answered that they did not know where it was from.
  • 8 And Jesus said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.”
  • 9 Then He began to tell the people this parable: “A certain man planted a vineyard, leased it to vinedressers, and went into a far country for a long time.
  • 10 Now at harvest time he sent a servant to the vinedressers, that they might give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the vinedressers beat him and sent him away empty handed.
  • 11 And again he sent another servant; and they beat him also, treated him shamefully, and sent him away empty handed.
  • 12 And again he sent a third; and they wounded him also and cast him out.
  • 13 “Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my beloved son. It mat be they will respect him when they see him.’
  • 14 But when the vinedressers saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.’
  • 15 So they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. Therefore what shall the owner of the vineyard do to them?
  • 16 He will come and destroy those vinedressers and give the vineyard to others.” And when they heard it they said, “God forbid!”
  • 17 Then He looked at them and said, “What then is this that is written: ‘The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone’?
  • 18 Whoever falls on that stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.”
  • 19 And the chief priests and the scribes that very hour sought to lay hands on Him, but they feared the people, because they perceived He had spoken this parable against them.
  • 20 So they watched Him, and sent out spies who pretended to be righteous men, that they might seize on His words, in order to deliver Him to the power and the authority of the governor.
  • 21 Then they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You do not show any personal favoritism, but teach the way of God in truth:
  • 22 Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”
  • 23 But He perceived their craftiness, and said to them, “Why do you test Me?
  • 24 Show Me a denarius. Whose image and inscription does it have?” They answered and said, “Caesar’s.”
  • 25 And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”
  • 26 But they could not catch Him in His words in the presence of the people. And they marveled at His answer and kept silent.
  • 27 Then some of the Sadducees, who deny that there is a resurrection, came to Him and asked Him,
  • 28 saying: “Teacher, Moses wrote to us that if a man’s brother dies, having a wife, and he dies without children, that his brother should take his wife and raise up offspring for his brother.
  • 29 Then there were seven brothers. And the first took a wife, and died without children.
  • 30 And the second took her as wife, and he died childless.
  • 31 Then the third took her, and in like manner the seven also; and they left no children, and died.
  • 32 Last of all the woman died also.
  • 33 Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife of them is she? Because all seven had her as wife.”
  • 34 And answering Jesus said to them, “The children of this age marry and are given in marriage.
  • 35 But those who will be counted worthy to attain that age, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage;
  • 36 nor can they die anymore, because, they are equal to the angels and are children of God, being children of the resurrection.
  • 37 But even Moses revealed at the bush that the dead are raised, when he called the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’
  • 38 Because, He is not the God of the dead but of the living, because all live to Him.”
  • 39 Then some of the scribes replied and said, “Teacher, You have spoken well.”
  • 40 But after that they dared not ask Him any more questions.
  • 41 And He said to them, “How can they say that the Christ is David's Son?
  • 42 Now David himself said in the Book of Psalms: ‘The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand,
  • 43 until I make Your enemies Your footstool.”’
  • 44 Therefore David calls Him ‘Lord’; how is He then his Son?”
  • 45 Then, in the hearing of all the people, He said to His disciples,
  • 46 “Beware of the scribes, who desire to go around in long robes, love greetings in the marketplaces, the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts,
  • 47 who devour widows’ houses, and for a show make long prayers. These will receive greater damnation.”
