ESV 3 and sent his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding feast, but they would not 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.

Come to the wedding feast.' 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.' ESV 5 But they paid no attention 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.

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.'

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.

Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?" ESV 18 But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, "Why put me to the test, you hypocrites?

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. ESV 25 Now there were seven brothers among us.

ESV 28 In the resurrection, therefore, of the seven, whose wife will she be? For they all had her." NIV 28 Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?" ESV 29 But Jesus answered them, "You are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God. NIV 29 Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. ESV 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are 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. ESV 31 And as for the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was said to you by God: NIV 31 But about the resurrection of the dead--have you not read what God said to you, ESV 32 'I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not God 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."

NIV 37 Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' ESV 38 This is the great and first commandment. NIV 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. ESV 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. NIV 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
