Parable of the Vine-growers

1 And R409 He began to speak to them in parables: "A R410 man PLANTED R411 A VINEYARD AND PUT A WALL F199 AROUND IT, AND DUG A VAT UNDER THE WINE PRESS AND BUILT A TOWER, and rented it out to vine-growers F200 and went on a journey. 2 "At the harvest time he sent a slave to the vine-growers, in order to receive some of the produce of the vineyard from the vine-growers. 3 "They took him, and beat him and sent him away empty-handed. 4 "Again he sent them another slave, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully. 5 "And he sent another, and that one they killed; and so with many others, beating some and killing others. 6 "He had one more to send, a beloved son; he sent him last of all to them, saying, `They will respect my son.' 7 "But those vine-growers said to one another, `This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours!' 8 "They took him, and killed him and threw him out of the vineyard. 9 "What will the owner F201 of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the vine-growers, and will give the vineyard to others. 10 "Have you not even read this Scripture: `THE R412 STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone;



12 And R414 they were seeking to seize Him, and yet they feared the people, F202 for they understood that He spoke the parable against them. And so they R415 left Him and went away.

Jesus Answers the Pharisees, Sadducees and Scribes

13 Then R416 they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians R417 to Him in order to trap R418 Him in a statement. 14 They came and said to Him, "Teacher, we know that You are truthful and defer F203 to no one; for You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful F204 to pay a poll-tax to Caesar, or not? 15 "Shall we pay or shall we not pay?" But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, "Why are you testing Me? Bring Me a denarius F205 to look at." 16 They brought one. And He said to them, "Whose likeness and inscription is this?" And they said to Him, "Caesar's." 17 And Jesus said to them, "Render R419 to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they were F206 amazed at Him.

18 Some R420 Sadducees (who say that there is no resurrection) came to Jesus, and began questioning Him, saying, 19 "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that IF R421 A MAN'S BROTHER DIES and leaves behind a wife AND LEAVES NO CHILD, HIS BROTHER SHOULD MARRY F207 THE WIFE AND RAISE UP CHILDREN TO HIS BROTHER. 20 "There were seven brothers; and the first took a wife, and died leaving no children. 21 "The second one married F208 her, and died leaving behind no children; and the third likewise; 22 and so all F209 seven left no children. Last of all the woman died also. 23 "In the resurrection, when F210 they rise again, which one's wife will she be? For all F211 seven had married her." 24 Jesus said to them, "Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand F212 the Scriptures or the power of God? 25 "For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. 26 "But regarding F213 the fact that the dead rise again, have you not read in the book of Moses, in R422 the passage about the burning bush, how God spoke to him, saying, `I R423 AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, and the God of Jacob'? 27 "He R424 is not the God of F214 the dead, but of the living; you are greatly mistaken."

28 One R425 of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing R426 that He had answered them well, asked Him, "What commandment is the foremost F215 of all?" 29 Jesus answered, "The foremost is, `HEAR R427 , O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD; 30 AND R428 YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.' 31 "The second is this, `YOU R429 SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' There is no other commandment greater than these." 32 The scribe said to Him, "Right, Teacher; You have truly stated that HE R430 IS ONE, AND THERE IS NO ONE ELSE BESIDES HIM; 33 AND R431 TO LOVE HIM WITH ALL THE HEART AND WITH ALL THE UNDERSTANDING AND WITH ALL THE STRENGTH, AND TO LOVE ONE'S NEIGHBOR AS HIMSELF, is R432 much more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices." 34 When Jesus saw that he had answered intelligently, He said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." After R433 that, no one would venture to ask Him any more questions.

35 And R434 Jesus began to say, as He taught R435 in the temple, "How is it that the scribes say that the F216 Christ is the son R436 of David? 36 "David himself said in F217 the Holy Spirit, `THE R437 LORD SAID TO MY LORD, "SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, UNTIL I PUT YOUR ENEMIES BENEATH YOUR FEET."' 37 "David himself calls Him `Lord'; so in what sense is He his son?" And the R438 large crowd enjoyed F218 listening to Him.

38 In R439 His teaching He was saying: "Beware of the scribes who like to walk around in long robes, and like respectful R440 greetings in the market places, 39 and chief seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets, 40 who R441 devour widows' houses, and for appearance's sake offer long prayers; these will receive greater condemnation."

The Widow's Mite

41 And R442 He sat down opposite the R443 treasury, and began observing how the people were putting R444 money F219 into the treasury; and many rich people were putting in large sums. 42 A poor widow came and put in two small F220 copper coins, which amount to a cent. F221 43 Calling His disciples to Him, He said to them, "Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the F222 contributors to the treasury; 44 for they all put in out of their surplus, F223 but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all F224 she had to R445 live on."
