CSB 1 Once more Jesus spoke to them in parables: NIV 1 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: CSB 2 "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. NIV 2 "The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. CSB 3 He sent out his slaves to summon those invited to the banquet, but they didn't want 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. CSB 4 Again, he sent out other slaves, and said, 'Tell those who are invited: Look, I've prepared my dinner; my oxen and fattened cattle have been slaughtered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet. ' 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.' CSB 5 "But they paid no attention and went away, one to his own farm, another to his business. NIV 5 "But they paid no attention and went off--one to his field, another to his business. CSB 6 And the others seized his slaves, treated them outrageously and killed them. NIV 6 The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. CSB 7 The king was enraged, so he sent out his troops, destroyed 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. CSB 8 "Then he told his slaves, 'The banquet is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. NIV 8 "Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. CSB 9 Therefore, go to where the roads exit the city and invite everyone you find to the banquet.' NIV 9 Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.' CSB 10 So those slaves went out on the roads and gathered everyone they found, both evil and good. The wedding banquet 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. CSB 11 But when the king came in to view the guests, he saw a man there who was not dressed for a wedding. NIV 11 "But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. CSB 12 So he said to him, '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. CSB 13 "Then the king told the attendants, 'Tie him up hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of 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.' CSB 14 "For many are invited, but few are chosen." NIV 14 "For many are invited, but few are chosen." CSB 15 Then the Pharisees went and plotted how to trap Him by what He said. NIV 15 Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words. CSB 16 They sent their disciples to Him, with the Herodians. "Teacher," they said, "we know that You are truthful and teach truthfully the way of God. You defer to no one, for You don't show partiality. 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. CSB 17 Tell us, therefore, what You think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not?" NIV 17 Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?" CSB 18 But perceiving their malice, Jesus said, "Why are you testing Me, hypocrites? NIV 18 But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, "You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me? CSB 19 Show Me the coin used for the tax." So they brought Him a denarius. NIV 19 Show me the coin used for paying the tax." They brought him a denarius, CSB 20 "Whose image and inscription is this?" He asked them. NIV 20 and he asked them, "Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?" CSB 21 "Caesar's," they said to Him. Then He said to them, "Therefore, give back to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." 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." CSB 22 When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left Him and went away. NIV 22 When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away. CSB 23 The same day some Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came up to Him and questioned Him: NIV 23 That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. CSB 24 "Teacher, Moses said, if a man dies, having no children, his brother is to marry his wife and raise up offspring for his brother. 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. CSB 25 Now there were seven brothers among us. The first got married and died. Having no offspring, he left his wife 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. CSB 26 The same happened to the second also, and the third, and so to all seven. NIV 26 The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. CSB 27 Then last of all the woman died. NIV 27 Finally, the woman died. CSB 28 Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven? For they all had 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?" CSB 29 Jesus answered them, "You are deceived, because you don't know the Scriptures or the power of God. NIV 29 Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. CSB 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. CSB 31 Now concerning the resurrection of the dead, haven't you read what was spoken to you by God: NIV 31 But about the resurrection of the dead--have you not read what God said to you, CSB 32 I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob ? He is not the 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." CSB 33 And when the crowds heard this, they were astonished at His teaching. NIV 33 When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching. CSB 34 When the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they came together in the same place. NIV 34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. CSB 35 And one of them, an expert in the law, asked a question to test Him: NIV 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: CSB 36 "Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?" NIV 36 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" CSB 37 He said to him, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. NIV 37 Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' CSB 38 This is the greatest and most important commandment. NIV 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. CSB 39 The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. NIV 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' CSB 40 All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commandments." NIV 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." CSB 41 While the Pharisees were together, Jesus questioned them, NIV 41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, CSB 42 "What do you think about the Messiah? Whose Son is He?" "David's," they told Him. NIV 42 "What do you think about the Christ ? Whose son is he?" "The son of David," they replied. CSB 43 He asked them, "How is it then that David, inspired by the Spirit, calls Him 'Lord': NIV 43 He said to them, "How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him 'Lord'? For he says, CSB 44 The Lord declared to my Lord, 'Sit 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." ' CSB 45 "If David calls Him 'Lord,' how then can the Messiah be his Son?" NIV 45 If then David calls him 'Lord,' how can he be his son?" CSB 46 No one was able to answer Him at all, and from that day no one dared to question Him any more. NIV 46 No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions.
