NAS 1 On one of the days while He was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes with the elders confronted Him, NIV 1 One day as he was teaching the people in the temple courts and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, together with the elders, came up to him. NAS 2 and they spoke, saying to Him, "Tell us by what authority You are doing these things, or who is the one who gave You this authority?" NIV 2 "Tell us by what authority you are doing these things," they said. "Who gave you this authority?" NAS 3 Jesus answered and said to them, "I will also ask you a question, and you tell Me: NIV 3 He replied, "I will also ask you a question. Tell me, NAS 4 "Was the baptism of John from heaven or from men?" NIV 4 John's baptism--was it from heaven, or from men?" NAS 5 They reasoned among themselves, saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' He will say, 'Why did you not believe him?' NIV 5 They discussed it among themselves and said, "If we say, 'From heaven,' he will ask, 'Why didn't you believe him?' NAS 6 "But if we say, 'From men,' all the people will stone us to death, for they are convinced that John was a prophet." NIV 6 But if we say, 'From men,' all the people will stone us, because they are persuaded that John was a prophet." NAS 7 So they answered that they did not know where it came from. NIV 7 So they answered, "We don't know where it was from." NAS 8 And Jesus said to them, "Nor will I tell you by what authority I do these things." NIV 8 Jesus said, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things." NAS 9 And He began to tell the people this parable: "A man planted a vineyard and rented it out to vine-growers, and went on a journey for a long time. NIV 9 He 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. NAS 10 "At the harvest time he sent a slave to the vine-growers, so that they would give him some of the produce of the vineyard; but the vine-growers beat him and sent him away empty-handed. NIV 10 At 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. NAS 11 "And he proceeded to send another slave; and they beat him also and treated him shamefully and sent him away empty-handed. NIV 11 He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed. NAS 12 "And he proceeded to send a third; and this one also they wounded and cast out. NIV 12 He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out. NAS 13 "The owner of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; perhaps they will respect him.' NIV 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.' NAS 14 "But when the vine-growers saw him, they reasoned with one another, saying, 'This is the heir; let us kill him so that the inheritance will be ours.' NIV 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.' NAS 15 "So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What, then, will the owner of the vineyard do to them? NIV 15 So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. "What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? NAS 16 "He will come and destroy these vine-growers and will give the vineyard to others." When they heard it, they said, "May it never be!" NIV 16 He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others." When the people heard this, they said, "May this never be!" NAS 17 But Jesus looked at them and said, "What then is this that is written: 'THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone'? NIV 17 Jesus 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 ' ? NAS 18 "Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust." NIV 18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed." NAS 19 The scribes and the chief priests tried to lay hands on Him that very hour, and they feared the people; for they understood that He spoke this parable against them. NIV 19 The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people. NAS 20 So they watched Him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, in order that they might catch Him in some statement, so that they could deliver Him to the rule and the authority of the governor. NIV 20 Keeping a close watch on him, they sent spies, who pretended to be honest. They hoped to catch Jesus in something he said so that they might hand him over to the power and authority of the governor. NAS 21 They questioned Him, saying, "Teacher, we know that You speak and teach correctly, and You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth. NIV 21 So the spies questioned him: "Teacher, we know that you speak and teach what is right, and that you do not show partiality but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. NAS 22 "Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?" NIV 22 Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?" NAS 23 But He detected their trickery and said to them, NIV 23 He saw through their duplicity and said to them, NAS 24 "Show Me a denarius. Whose likeness and inscription does it have?" They said, "Caesar's." NIV 24 "Show me a denarius. Whose portrait and inscription are on it?" NAS 25 And He said to them, "Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." NIV 25 "Caesar's," they replied. He said to them, "Then give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's." NAS 26 And they were unable to catch Him in a saying in the presence of the people; and being amazed at His answer, they became silent. NIV 26 They were unable to trap him in what he had said there in public. And astonished by his answer, they became silent. NAS 27 Now there came to Him some of the Sadducees (who say that there is no resurrection ), NIV 27 Some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus with a question. NAS 28 and they questioned Him, saying, "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that IF A MAN'S BROTHER DIES, having a wife, AND HE IS CHILDLESS, HIS BROTHER SHOULD MARRY THE WIFE AND RAISE UP CHILDREN TO HIS BROTHER. NIV 28 "Teacher," they said, "Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and have children for his brother. NAS 29 "Now there were seven brothers; and the first took a wife and died childless; NIV 29 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married a woman and died childless. NAS 30 and the second NIV 30 The second NAS 31 and the third married her; and in the same way all seven died, leaving no children. NIV 31 and then the third married her, and in the same way the seven died, leaving no children. NAS 32 "Finally the woman died also. NIV 32 Finally, the woman died too. NAS 33 "In the resurrection therefore, which one's wife will she be? For all seven had married her." NIV 33 Now then, at the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?" NAS 34 Jesus said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, NIV 34 Jesus replied, "The people of this age marry and are given in marriage. NAS 35 but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; NIV 35 But those who are considered worthy of taking part in that age and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage, NAS 36 for they cannot even die anymore, because they are like angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. NIV 36 and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God's children, since they are children of the resurrection. NAS 37 "But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the passage about the burning bush, where he calls the Lord THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB. NIV 37 But in the account of the bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord 'the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.' NAS 38 "Now He is not the God of the dead but of the living; for all live to Him." NIV 38 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive." NAS 39 Some of the scribes answered and said, "Teacher, You have spoken well." NIV 39 Some of the teachers of the law responded, "Well said, teacher!" NAS 40 For they did not have courage to question Him any longer about anything. NIV 40 And no one dared to ask him any more questions. NAS 41 Then He said to them, "How is it that they say the Christ is David's son? NIV 41 Then Jesus said to them, "How is it that they say the Christ is the Son of David? NAS 42 "For David himself says in the book of Psalms, 'THE LORD SAID TO MY LORD , "SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, NIV 42 David himself declares in the Book of Psalms: " 'The Lord said to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand NAS 43 UNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES A FOOTSTOOL FOR YOUR FEET."' NIV 43 until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet." ' NAS 44 "Therefore David calls Him 'Lord ,' and how is He his son?" NIV 44 David calls him 'Lord.' How then can he be his son?" NAS 45 And while all the people were listening, He said to the disciples, NIV 45 While all the people were listening, Jesus said to his disciples, NAS 46 "Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love respectful greetings in the market places, and chief seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets, NIV 46 "Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. NAS 47 who devour widows' houses, and for appearance's sake offer long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation." NIV 47 They devour widows' houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely."
