Mark 12:28-44

GNT 28 A teacher of the Law was there who heard the discussion. He saw that Jesus had given the Sadducees a good answer, so he came to him with a question: "Which commandment is the most important of all?" NIV 28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” GNT 29 Jesus replied, "The most important one is this: "Listen, Israel! The Lord our God is the only Lord. NIV 29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. GNT 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' NIV 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ GNT 31 The second most important commandment is this: "Love your neighbor as you love yourself.' There is no other commandment more important than these two." NIV 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no commandment greater than these.” GNT 32 The teacher of the Law said to Jesus, "Well done, Teacher! It is true, as you say, that only the Lord is God and that there is no other god but he. NIV 32 “Well said, teacher,” the man replied. “You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him. GNT 33 And you must love God with all your heart and with all your mind and with all your strength; and you must love your neighbor as you love yourself. It is more important to obey these two commandments than to offer on the altar animals and other sacrifices to God." NIV 33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” GNT 34 Jesus noticed how wise his answer was, and so he told him, "You are not far from the Kingdom of God." After this nobody dared to ask Jesus any more questions. NIV 34 When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions. GNT 35 As Jesus was teaching in the Temple, he asked the question, "How can the teachers of the Law say that the Messiah will be the descendant of David? NIV 35 While Jesus was teaching in the temple courts, he asked, “Why do the teachers of the law say that the Messiah is the son of David? GNT 36 The Holy Spirit inspired David to say: "The Lord said to my Lord: Sit here at my right side until I put your enemies under your feet.' NIV 36 David himself, speaking by the Holy Spirit, declared: “ ‘The Lord said to my Lord:“Sit at my right handuntil I put your enemiesunder your feet.” ’ GNT 37 David himself called him "Lord'; so how can the Messiah be David's descendant?" A large crowd was listening to Jesus gladly. NIV 37 David himself calls him ‘Lord.’ How then can he be his son?”The large crowd listened to him with delight. GNT 38 As he taught them, he said, "Watch out for the teachers of the Law, who like to walk around in their long robes and be greeted with respect in the marketplace, NIV 38 As he taught, Jesus said, “Watch out for the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and be greeted with respect in the marketplaces, GNT 39 who choose the reserved seats in the synagogues and the best places at feasts. NIV 39 and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. GNT 40 They take advantage of widows and rob them of their homes, and then make a show of saying long prayers. Their punishment will be all the worse!" NIV 40 They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. These men will be punished most severely.” GNT 41 As Jesus sat near the Temple treasury, he watched the people as they dropped in their money. Many rich men dropped in a lot of money; NIV 41 Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. GNT 42 then a poor widow came along and dropped in two little copper coins, worth about a penny. NIV 42 But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. GNT 43 He called his disciples together and said to them, "I tell you that this poor widow put more in the offering box than all the others. NIV 43 Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. GNT 44 For the others put in what they had to spare of their riches; but she, poor as she is, put in all she had - she gave all she had to live on." NIV 44 They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”
