Mark 12:40

Overview - Mark 12
In a parable of the vineyard let out to wicked husbandmen Christ foretells the reprobation of the Jews, and the calling of the Gentiles.
13 He avoids the snare of the Pharisees and Herodians about paying tribute to Caesar;
18 convicts the Sadducees of error, who denied the resurrection;
28 resolves the scribe, who questioned of the first commandment;
35 refutes the opinion that the scribes held of Christ;
38 bidding the people to beware of their ambition and hypocrisy;
41 and commends the poor widow for her two mites, above all.
