1 G2532 It G1096 happened G1722 on G1520 one G1565 of those G2250 days, G846 as he G1321 was teaching G2992 the people G1722 in G2411 the temple G2532 and G2097 preaching the Good News, G749 that the priests G2532 and G1122 scribes G2186 came to G4862 him with G4245 the elders.
2 G2532 They G2036 asked G4314 G846 him, G3004 G2036 "Tell G2254 us: G1722 by G4169 what G1849 authority G4160 do you G5023 do these things? G2228 Or G5101 who G2076 is G3588 G1325 giving G4671 you G3778 this G1849 authority?"
3 G1161 He G611 answered G846 them, G2036 G4314 G2504 "I also G2065 will G2065 ask G5209 you G1520 one G3056 question. G2532 G2036 Tell G3427 me:
4 G908 the baptism G2491 of John, G2258 was it G1537 from G3772 heaven, G2228 or G1537 from G444 men?"
5 G1161 They G4817 reasoned G4314 with G1438 themselves, G3754 saying, G1437 "If G2036 we say, G1537 ‘From G3772 heaven,' G1223 he will say, G5101 ‘Why G3767 G3756 didn't G4100 you G846 believe him?'
6 G1437 But G1437 if G2036 we say, G1537 ‘From G444 men,' G3956 all G2992 the people G2642 will stone G2248 us, G1063 for G1511 they are G3982 persuaded that G2491 John G2076 was G4396 a prophet."
8 G2424 Jesus G2036 said G846 to them, G3761 "Neither G1473 will I G3004 tell G5213 you G1722 by G4169 what G1849 authority G1473 I G4160 do G5023 these things."
9 G1161 G756 He G3004 began to tell G4314 the G2992 people G3778 this G3850 parable. G5100 "A G444 man G5452 planted G290 a vineyard, G2532 and G1554 rented G846 it G1554 out G1092 to some farmers, G2532 and G589 went into another country G2425 for a long G5550 time.
10 G2532 G1722 At G2540 the proper season, G649 he sent G1401 a servant G4314 to G1092 the farmers G4314 to G1325 collect G846 his G575 share of G2590 the fruit G290 of the vineyard. G1161 But G1092 the farmers G1194 beat G846 him, G1821 and sent G1821 him away G2756 empty.
11 G2532 He G3992 sent G4369 yet G2087 another G1401 servant, G2532 and G2548 they also G1194 beat G1161 him, and G818 treated G818 him shamefully, G1821 and sent G1821 him away G2756 empty.
12 G3992 He sent G5154 yet a third, G2532 and G2532 they also G5135 wounded G5126 him, G1161 and G1544 threw G5126 him G1544 out.
13 G1161 The G2962 lord G290 of the vineyard G2036 said, G5101 ‘What G4160 shall I do? G3992 I will send G3450 my G27 beloved G5207 son. G2481 It may be G5126 that seeing him, G1788 they will respect G5126 him.'
14 G1161 "But G1092 when the farmers G1492 saw G846 him, G1260 they reasoned G4314 among G1438 themselves, G3004 saying, G3778 ‘This G2076 is G2818 the heir. G1205 Come, G615 let's kill G846 him, G2443 that G2817 the inheritance G1096 may be G2257 ours.'
15 G2532 They G1544 threw G846 him G1854 out of G290 the vineyard, G615 and killed G5101 him. What G3767 therefore G4160 will G2962 the lord G290 of the vineyard G4160 do G846 to them?
16 G2064 He will come G2532 and G622 destroy G5128 these G1092 farmers, G2532 and G1325 will give G290 the vineyard G243 to others." G1161 When G191 they heard G3361 it, they said, G1096 "May it never be!"
17 G1161 But G1689 he looked G846 at them, G2036 and said, G3767 "Then G5101 what G2076 is G5124 this G3588 that G1125 is written, G3037 ‘The stone G3739 which G3618 the builders G593 rejected, G3778 the same G1096 was made G1519 the G2776 chief G1137 cornerstone?'
18 G3956 Everyone G4098 who falls G1909 on G1565 that G3037 stone G4917 will be broken G1161 to pieces, but G3039 it will crush G3739 whomever G302 G4098 it falls G1909 on G846 to G3039 dust."
19 G2532 The G749 chief priests G2532 and G1122 the scribes G2212 sought G1911 to lay G5495 hands G1909 on G846 him G1722 that G846 very G5610 hour, G2532 but G5399 they feared G2992 the people — G1063 for G1097 they knew G3754 he G2036 had spoken G3778 this G3850 parable G4314 against G846 them.
20 G1455 They G3906 watched G649 him, and sent out G1455 spies, G5271 who pretended G1438 G1511 G1342 to be righteous, G2443 that G1949 they might trap G846 him in something he G3056 said, G2443 so G3860 as to deliver G846 him G1519 up to G746 the power G2532 and G1849 authority G2232 of the governor.
21 G2532 They G1905 asked G846 him, G3004 G1320 "Teacher, G1492 we know G3754 that G3004 you say G2532 and G1321 teach G2532 what is right, G2532 and G2983 aren't partial G4383 to anyone, G235 but G1909 G225 truly G1321 teach G3598 the way G2316 of God.
23 G1161 But G2657 he perceived G846 their G3834 craftiness, G2036 and said G4314 to G846 them, G5101 "Why G3985 do you G3165 test me?
24 G1925 Show G3427 me G1220 a denarius. G5101 Whose G1504 image G2532 and G1923 inscription G2192 are on it?" G611 They answered, G2541 "Caesar's."
25 G1161 He G2036 said G846 to them, G5106 "Then G591 give G2541 to Caesar G3588 the things G2541 that are Caesar's, G2532 and G2316 to God G3588 the things G2316 that are God's."
26 G2532 They G3756 weren't G2480 able G1949 to trap G846 him G4487 in his words G1726 before G2992 the people. G2296 They marveled G1909 at G846 his G612 answer, G2532 and G4601 were silent.
27 G1161 G5100 Some G4523 of the Sadducees G4334 came to G483 him, those G3588 who G3361 deny G1511 that there is G386 a resurrection.
28 G1905 They asked G846 him, G3004 G1320 "Teacher, G3475 Moses G1125 wrote G2254 to us G1437 that if G5100 a man's G80 brother G599 dies G2192 having G1135 a wife, G2532 and G3778 he G599 is G815 childless, G2443 G846 his G80 brother G2983 should take G1135 the wife, G2532 and G1817 raise up G4690 sons G846 for his G80 brother.
29 G2258 There were G3767 therefore G2033 seven G80 brothers. G4413 The first G2983 took G1135 a wife, G2532 and G599 died G815 childless.
30 G1208 The second G2983 took G3778 her G1135 as wife, G2532 and G3778 he G599 died G815 childless.
31 G2532 The G5154 third G2983 took G846 her, G2532 and G5615 likewise G2033 the seven G2532 all G2641 left G3756 no G5043 sons, G2532 and G599 died.
33 G3767 Therefore G1722 in G386 the resurrection G5101 whose G1135 wife G846 of them G1096 will she G1063 be? For G2033 the seven G2192 had G846 her G1135 as a wife."
34 G2532 G2424 Jesus G611 G2036 said G846 to them, G5207 "The sons G5127 of this G165 age G1060 marry, G2532 and G1548 are given in marriage.
35 G1161 But G3588 those who G2661 are considered worthy G5177 to attain G1565 to that G165 age G2532 and G386 the resurrection G1537 from G3498 the dead, G3777 neither G1060 marry, G3777 nor G1548 are given in marriage.
36 G3777 For G1410 they can't G599 die G2089 any more, G1063 for G1526 they are G2465 like the angels, G2532 and G1526 are G5207 sons G2316 of God, G5607 being G5207 sons G386 of the resurrection.
37 G1161 But G3754 that G3498 the dead G1453 are raised, G2532 even G3475 Moses G3377 showed G1909 at G942 the bush, G5613 when G3004 he called G2962 the Lord G2316 ‘The God G11 of Abraham, G2532 the G2316 God G2464 of Isaac, G2532 and G2316 the God G2384 of Jacob.'
38 G1161 Now G2076 he is G3756 not G2316 the God G3498 of the dead, G235 but G2198 of the living, G1063 for G3956 all G2198 are alive G846 to him."
39 G1161 G5100 Some G1122 of the scribes G2036 answered, G2036 G1320 "Teacher, G2036 you G2036 speak G2573 well."
41 G1161 He G2036 said G4314 to G846 them, G4459 "Why G3004 do they G5547 say that the Christ G1511 is G1138 David's G5207 son?
42 G2532 G1138 David G846 himself G3004 says G1722 in G976 the book G5568 of Psalms, G2962 ‘The Lord G2036 said G3450 to my G2962 Lord, G2521 "Sit G1537 at G3450 my G1188 right hand,
44 G1138 "David G3767 therefore G2564 calls G846 him G2962 Lord, G4459 so how G2076 is he G2532 G846 his G5207 son?"
45 G1161 In G191 the hearing G3956 of all G2992 the people, G2036 he said G846 to his G3101 disciples,
46 G4337 "Beware G575 of G1122 the scribes, G3588 who G2309 like G4043 to walk G1722 in G4749 long robes, G2532 and G5368 love G783 greetings G1722 in G58 the marketplaces, G2532 the G4410 best seats G1722 in G4864 the synagogues, G2532 and G4411 the best places G1722 at G1173 feasts;
