Matthew 22

CJB 1 Yeshua again used parables in speaking to them: NIV 1 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: CJB 2 "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding feast for his son, NIV 2 "The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. CJB 3 but when he sent his slaves to summon the invited guests to the wedding, they refused to come. NIV 3 He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come. CJB 4 So he sent some more slaves, instructing them to tell the guests, `Look, I've prepared my banquet, I've slaughtered my bulls and my fattened cattle, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding!' NIV 4 "Then he sent some more servants and said, 'Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.' CJB 5 But they weren't interested and went off, one to his farm, another to his business; NIV 5 "But they paid no attention and went off--one to his field, another to his business. CJB 6 and the rest grabbed his slaves, mistreated them and killed them. NIV 6 The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. CJB 7 The king was furious and sent his soldiers, who killed those murderers and burned down their city. NIV 7 The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. CJB 8 "Then he said to his slaves, `Well, the wedding feast is ready; but the ones who were invited didn't deserve it. NIV 8 "Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. CJB 9 So go out to the street-corners and invite to the banquet as many as you find.' NIV 9 Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.' CJB 10 The slaves went out into the streets, gathered all the people they could find, the bad along with the good; and the wedding hall was filled with guests. NIV 10 So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests. CJB 11 "Now when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who wasn't dressed for a wedding; so he asked him, NIV 11 "But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. CJB 12 `Friend, how did you get in here without wedding clothes?' The man was speechless. NIV 12 'Friend,' he asked, 'how did you get in here without wedding clothes?' The man was speechless. CJB 13 Then the king said to the servants, `Bind him hand and foot, and throw him outside in the dark!' In that place people will wail and grind their teeth, NIV 13 "Then the king told the attendants, 'Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' CJB 14 for many are invited, but few are chosen." NIV 14 "For many are invited, but few are chosen." CJB 15 Then the P'rushim went away and put together a plan to trap Yeshua with his own words. NIV 15 Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words. CJB 16 They sent him some of their talmidim and some members of Herod's party. They said, "Rabbi, we know that you tell the truth and really teach what God's way is. You aren't concerned with what other people think about you, since you pay no attention to a person's status. NIV 16 They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians. "Teacher," they said, "we know you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren't swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are. CJB 17 So tell us your opinion: does Torah permit paying taxes to the Roman Emperor or not?" NIV 17 Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?" CJB 18 Yeshua, however, knowing their malicious intent, said, "You hypocrites! Why are you trying to trap me? NIV 18 But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, "You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me? CJB 19 Show me the coin used to pay the tax!" They brought him a denarius; NIV 19 Show me the coin used for paying the tax." They brought him a denarius, CJB 20 and he asked them, "Whose name and picture are these?" NIV 20 and he asked them, "Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?" CJB 21 "The Emperor's," they replied. Yeshua said to them, "Nu, give the Emperor what belongs to the Emperor. And give to God what belongs to God!" NIV 21 "Caesar's," they replied. Then he said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's." CJB 22 On hearing this, they were amazed; and they left him and went away. NIV 22 When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away. CJB 23 That same day, some Tz'dukim came to him. They are the ones who say there is no such thing as resurrection, so they put to him a sh'eilah: NIV 23 That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. CJB 24 "Rabbi, Moshe said, `If a man dies childless, his brother must marry his widow and have children to preserve the man's family line.' NIV 24 "Teacher," they said, "Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and have children for him. CJB 25 There were seven brothers. The first one married and then died; and since he had no children, he left his widow to his brother. NIV 25 Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother. CJB 26 The same thing happened to the second brother, and the third, and finally to all seven. NIV 26 The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. CJB 27 After them all, the woman died. NIV 27 Finally, the woman died. CJB 28 Now in the Resurrection -- of the seven, whose wife will she be? For they all married her." NIV 28 Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?" CJB 29 Yeshua answered them, "The reason you go astray is that you are ignorant both of the Tanakh and of the power of God. NIV 29 Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. CJB 30 For in the Resurrection, neither men nor women will marry; rather, they will be like angels in heaven. NIV 30 At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. CJB 31 And as for whether the dead are resurrected, haven't you read what God said to you, NIV 31 But about the resurrection of the dead--have you not read what God said to you, CJB 32 `I am the God of Avraham, the God of Yitz'chak and the God of Ya`akov'? He is God not of the dead but of the living!" NIV 32 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob' ? He is not the God of the dead but of the living." CJB 33 When the crowds heard how he taught, they were astounded; NIV 33 When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching. CJB 34 but when the P'rushim learned that he had silenced the Tz'dukim, they got together, NIV 34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. CJB 35 and one of them who was a Torah expert asked a sh'eilah to trap him: NIV 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: CJB 36 "Rabbi, which of the mitzvot in the Torah is the most important?" NIV 36 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" CJB 37 He told him, "`You are to love ADONAI your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.' NIV 37 Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' CJB 38 This is the greatest and most important mitzvah. NIV 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. CJB 39 And a second is similar to it, `You are to love your neighbor as yourself.' NIV 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' CJB 40 All of the Torah and the Prophets are dependent on these two mitzvot." NIV 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." CJB 41 Then, turning to the assembled P'rushim, Yeshua put a sh'eilah to them: NIV 41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, CJB 42 "Tell me your view concerning the Messiah: whose son is he?" They said to him, "David's." NIV 42 "What do you think about the Christ ? Whose son is he?" "The son of David," they replied. CJB 43 "Then how is it," he asked them, "that David, inspired by the Spirit, calls him `Lord,' when he says, NIV 43 He said to them, "How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him 'Lord'? For he says, CJB 44 `ADONAI said to my Lord, "Sit here at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet"'? NIV 44 " 'The Lord said to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet." ' CJB 45 If David thus calls him `Lord,' how is he his son?" NIV 45 If then David calls him 'Lord,' how can he be his son?" CJB 46 No one could think of anything to say in reply; and from that day on, no one dared put to him another sh'eilah. NIV 46 No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions.
