NIV 1 He then began to speak to them in parables: "A man planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a pit for the winepress and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and went away on a journey. NRS 2 When the season came, he sent a slave to the tenants to collect from them his share of the produce of the vineyard. NIV 2 At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants to collect from them some of the fruit of the vineyard. NRS 3 But they seized him, and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. NIV 3 But they seized him, beat him and sent him away empty-handed. NRS 4 And again he sent another slave to them; this one they beat over the head and insulted. NIV 4 Then he sent another servant to them; they struck this man on the head and treated him shamefully. NRS 5 Then he sent another, and that one they killed. And so it was with many others; some they beat, and others they killed. NIV 5 He sent still another, and that one they killed. He sent many others; some of them they beat, others they killed. NRS 6 He had still one other, a beloved son. Finally he sent him to them, saying, "They will respect my son.' NIV 6 "He had one left to send, a son, whom he loved. He sent him last of all, saying, 'They will respect my son.' NRS 7 But those tenants said to one another, "This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' NIV 7 "But the tenants said to one another, 'This is the heir. Come, let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' NRS 8 So they seized him, killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard.

NIV 11 the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes' ?" NRS 12 When they realized that he had told this parable against them, they wanted to arrest him, but they feared the crowd. So they left him and went away. NIV 12 Then they looked for a way to arrest him because they knew he had spoken the parable against them. But they were afraid of the crowd; so they left him and went away. NRS 13 Then they sent to him some Pharisees and some Herodians to trap him in what he said. NIV 13 Later they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Jesus to catch him in his words. NRS 14 And they came and said to him, "Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality, but teach the way of God in accordance with truth. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not? NIV 14 They came to him and said, "Teacher, we know you are a man of integrity. You aren't swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are; but you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not? NRS 15 Should we pay them, or should we not?" But knowing their hypocrisy, he said to them, "Why are you putting me to the test? Bring me a denarius and let me see it." NIV 15 Should we pay or shouldn't we?" But Jesus knew their hypocrisy. "Why are you trying to trap me?" he asked. "Bring me a denarius and let me look at it." NRS 16 And they brought one. Then he said to them, "Whose head is this, and whose title?" They answered, "The emperor's." NIV 16 They brought the coin, and he asked them, "Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?" "Caesar's," they replied. NRS 17 Jesus said to them, "Give to the emperor the things that are the emperor's, and to God the things that are God's." And they were utterly amazed at him.

NRS 18 Some Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him and asked him a question, saying, NIV 18 Then the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. NRS 19 "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies, leaving a wife but no child, the man shall marry the widow and raise up children for his brother. NIV 19 "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. NRS 20 There were seven brothers; the first married and, when he died, left no children; NIV 20 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married and died without leaving any children. NRS 21 and the second married the widow and died, leaving no children; and the third likewise; NIV 21 The second one married the widow, but he also died, leaving no child. It was the same with the third. NRS 22 none of the seven left children. Last of all the woman herself died. NIV 22 In fact, none of the seven left any children. Last of all, the woman died too. NRS 23 In the resurrection whose wife will she be? For the seven had married her." NIV 23 At the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?" NRS 24 Jesus said to them, "Is not this the reason you are wrong, that you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God? NIV 24 Jesus replied, "Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God? NRS 25 For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. NIV 25 When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. NRS 26 And as for the dead being raised, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the story about the bush, how God said to him, "I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? NIV 26 Now about the dead rising--have you not read in the book of Moses, in the account of the bush, how God said to him, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob' NRS 27 He is God not of the dead, but of the living; you are quite wrong." NIV 27 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You are badly mistaken!" NRS 28 One of the scribes came near and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, he asked him, "Which commandment is the first of all?" NIV 28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?" NRS 29 Jesus answered, "The first is, "Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; NIV 29 "The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. NRS 30 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.' NIV 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' NRS 31 The second is this, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." NIV 31 The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." NRS 32 Then the scribe said to him, "You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that "he is one, and besides him there is no other'; NIV 32 "Well said, teacher," the man replied. "You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him. NRS 33 and "to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength,' and "to love one's neighbor as oneself,'—this is much more important than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices." NIV 33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices." NRS 34 When Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." After that no one dared to ask him any question. NIV 34 When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions. NRS 35 While Jesus was teaching in the temple, he said, "How can the scribes say that the Messiah is the son of David? NIV 35 While Jesus was teaching in the temple courts, he asked, "How is it that the teachers of the law say that the Christ is the son of David? NRS 36 David himself, by the Holy Spirit, declared, "The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet." ' NIV 36 David himself, speaking by the Holy Spirit, declared: " 'The Lord said to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet." ' NRS 37 David himself calls him Lord; so how can he be his son?" And the large crowd was listening to him with delight. NIV 37 David himself calls him 'Lord.' How then can he be his son?" The large crowd listened to him with delight. NRS 38 As he taught, he said, "Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces, NIV 38 As he taught, Jesus said, "Watch out for the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and be greeted in the marketplaces, NRS 39 and to have the best seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets! NIV 39 and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. NRS 40 They devour widows' houses and for the sake of appearance say long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation." NIV 40 They devour widows' houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely."

NIV 41 Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. NRS 42 A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which are worth a penny. NIV 42 But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny. NRS 43 Then he called his disciples and said to them, "Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. NIV 43 Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. NRS 44 For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on." NIV 44 They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything--all she had to live on."
