Luke 20:1-26

GNT 1 One day when Jesus was in the Temple teaching the people and preaching the Good News, the chief priests and the teachers of the Law, together with the elders, came NIV 1 One day as Jesus was teaching the people in the temple courts and proclaiming the good news, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, together with the elders, came up to him. GNT 2 and said to him, "Tell us, what right do you have to do these things? Who gave you such right?" NIV 2 “Tell us by what authority you are doing these things,” they said. “Who gave you this authority?” GNT 3 Jesus answered them, "Now let me ask you a question. Tell me, NIV 3 He replied, “I will also ask you a question. Tell me: GNT 4 did John's right to baptize come from God or from human beings?" NIV 4 John’s baptism—was it from heaven, or of human origin?” GNT 5 They started to argue among themselves, "What shall we say? If we say, "From God,' he will say, "Why, then, did you not believe John?' NIV 5 They discussed it among themselves and said, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will ask, ‘Why didn’t you believe him?’ GNT 6 But if we say, "From human beings,' this whole crowd here will stone us, because they are convinced that John was a prophet." NIV 6 But if we say, ‘Of human origin,’ all the people will stone us, because they are persuaded that John was a prophet.” GNT 7 So they answered, "We don't know where it came from." NIV 7 So they answered, “We don’t know where it was from.” GNT 8 And Jesus said to them, "Neither will I tell you, then, by what right I do these things." NIV 8 Jesus said, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.” GNT 9 Then Jesus told the people this parable: "There was once a man who planted a vineyard, rented it out to tenants, and then left home for a long time. NIV 9 He went on to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time. GNT 10 When the time came to gather the grapes, he sent a slave to the tenants to receive from them his share of the harvest. But the tenants beat the slave and sent him back without a thing. NIV 10 At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed. GNT 11 So he sent another slave; but the tenants beat him also, treated him shamefully, and sent him back without a thing. NIV 11 He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed. GNT 12 Then he sent a third slave; the tenants wounded him, too, and threw him out. NIV 12 He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out. GNT 13 Then the owner of the vineyard said, "What shall I do? I will send my own dear son; surely they will respect him!' NIV 13 “Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him.’ GNT 14 But when the tenants saw him, they said to one another, "This is the owner's son. Let's kill him, and his property will be ours!' NIV 14 “But when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over. ‘This is the heir,’ they said. ‘Let’s kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’ GNT 15 So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. "What, then, will the owner of the vineyard do to the tenants?" Jesus asked. NIV 15 So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. “What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? GNT 16 "He will come and kill those men, and turn the vineyard over to other tenants." When the people heard this, they said, "Surely not!" NIV 16 He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.”When the people heard this, they said, “God forbid!” GNT 17 Jesus looked at them and asked, "What, then, does this scripture mean? "The stone which the builders rejected as worthless turned out to be the most important of all.' NIV 17 Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written: “ ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone’? GNT 18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be cut to pieces; and if that stone falls on someone, that person will be crushed to dust." NIV 18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.” GNT 19 The teachers of the Law and the chief priests tried to arrest Jesus on the spot, because they knew that he had told this parable against them; but they were afraid of the people. NIV 19 The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people. GNT 20 So they looked for an opportunity. They bribed some men to pretend they were sincere, and they sent them to trap Jesus with questions, so that they could hand him over to the authority and power of the Roman Governor. NIV 20 Keeping a close watch on him, they sent spies, who pretended to be sincere. They hoped to catch Jesus in something he said, so that they might hand him over to the power and authority of the governor. GNT 21 These spies said to Jesus, "Teacher, we know that what you say and teach is right. We know that you pay no attention to anyone's status, but teach the truth about God's will for people. NIV 21 So the spies questioned him: “Teacher, we know that you speak and teach what is right, and that you do not show partiality but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. GNT 22 Tell us, is it against our Law for us to pay taxes to the Roman Emperor, or not?" NIV 22 Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?” GNT 23 But Jesus saw through their trick and said to them, NIV 23 He saw through their duplicity and said to them, GNT 24 "Show me a silver coin. Whose face and name are these on it?" "The Emperor's," they answered. NIV 24 “Show me a denarius. Whose image and inscription are on it?”“Caesar’s,” they replied. GNT 25 So Jesus said, "Well, then, pay to the Emperor what belongs to the Emperor, and pay to God what belongs to God." NIV 25 He said to them, “Then give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” GNT 26 There before the people they could not catch him in a thing, so they kept quiet, amazed at his answer. NIV 26 They were unable to trap him in what he had said there in public. And astonished by his answer, they became silent.
