11And He began to speak to them in parables: "2A man3PLANTED A VINEYARD AND PUT A aWALLAROUND IT, AND DUG A VATUNDER THE WINEPRESS AND BUILT A TOWER, and rented it out to bvine-growers 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 awayempty-handed.4"Again he sent them anotherslave, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully.5"And he sentanother, and that one they killed; and so with manyothers, beatingsome and killingothers .6"He hadonemore to send, a belovedson; he sent him last of all to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.'7"But thosevine-growerssaid to oneanother, '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 cowner of the vineyarddo? He will come and destroy the vine-growers, and will give the vineyard to others.10"Have you not evenreadthisScripture:'4THE STONEWHICH THE BUILDERSREJECTED,THISBECAME THE CHIEFCORNER stone;115THISCAME ABOUT FROM THE LORD,AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES '?"126And they were seeking to seize Him, and yet they feared the dpeople, for they understood that He spoke the parableagainst them. And so 7they left Him and wentaway.
138Then they sentsome of the Pharisees and 9Herodians to Him in order to 10trap Him in a statement.
They came and said to Him, "Teacher, we know that You are truthful and edefer to noone; for You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it flawful to pay a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?
"Shall we payor shall we not pay?" But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, "Why are you testing Me? Bring Me a gdenarius to look at."16
They brought one. And He said to them, "Whoselikeness and inscription is this?" And they said to Him, "Caesar's."
And Jesussaid to them, "11Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they hwere amazed at Him.
1812Some Sadducees (whosay that there is noresurrection ) came to Jesus, and began questioning Him, saying,
19"Teacher, Moseswrote for us that 13IF A MAN'SBROTHERDIES and leavesbehind a wife AND LEAVESNOCHILD, HIS BROTHER SHOULD iMARRY THE WIFE AND RAISE UP CHILDREN TO HIS BROTHER.
"There were sevenbrothers; and the firsttook a wife, and diedleavingnochildren.
"The secondonejmarried her, and diedleavingbehindnochildren; and the thirdlikewise;
and so kallsevenleftnochildren. Last of all the womandiedalso.
"In the resurrection, lwhen they riseagain, whichone'swife will she be? For mallsevenhad married her."
24Jesussaid to them, "Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not nunderstand the Scripturesor the power of God?25"For when they rise from the dead, they neithermarrynor are given in marriage, but are likeangels in heaven.26"But oregarding the fact that the deadriseagain, have you not read in the book of Moses, 14in the passage about the burning bush, howGodspoke to him, saying, '15I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, and the God of Jacob '?27"16He is not the Godpof the dead, but of the living; you are greatlymistaken."
