And at in the plural, the season 3 when the time of the fruit drew near, in the singular 4 he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard. •And the husbandmen caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty. And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, "and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty, And again he sent him they killed, "and cast him out, l'and many others; beating some, and killing some.

he sent him also last unto them, saying, 13 It may be they will reverence him* when they see him. But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir : come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours. So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. 14 When the Lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those

And the 42 beheld them, and said 'unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say

I unto


The 43 kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall 44 fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. And when the chief 45 priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them. But when they sought 'the same 46 hour 4 to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet; "for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them; and they left him, and went their way.

And Jesus answered and spake unto them i In the temple. again by parables, and said, The kingdom of 2 heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, and sent forth his servants to call them that 3 were bidden to the wedding : and they would not come. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which 4 are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner : my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went 5 their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise : and the remnant took his servants, and entreated them 6 spitefiilly, and slew them. But when the king heard 7 thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. Then 8 saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they

So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and

good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. ll And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw 12 there a man which had not on a wedding garment: and he

saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not

having a wedding garment ? And he was speechless. 13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and

Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. "And they watched him, and sent forth spies, 'certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, which should in the temple. feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor. And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, 6 and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth. Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou ? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Cæsar, or not? 'Shall we give, or shall we not give ? 10 But Jesus perceived their wickedness,* and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites ? shew me the tribute money; "bring me a penny, that I may see it. 2And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription ? They say unto him, Cæsar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Cæsar the things which are Cæsar's; and unto God the things that are God's. 3 And they could not take hold of his words

married to seven brethren in succession ; in which was involved the question of a resurrection to come(219) Jesus' answer to the question concerning the first and great commandment—(220) Jesus inquires of the Pharisees, whose son the Christ was to be ; and then reduces their unswer to an absurdity—(221) Jesus warns his disciples to beware of the scribes-—(222) Jesus declares the widow's mite to be a greater donation than the offerings of the rich--(223) St. John the Evangelist comments on the continued infidelity of the Jews; and adds a last discourse of Jesus relating to the same subject, and probably now delivered—(224) Jesus being about to leave the temple for the night, and at the same time to make an end of his ministry in public, denounces penal retribution, for a series of offences, upon his old and inveterate enemies the scribes and Pharisees, in woes eight times repeated.

tion; and they asked him, saying, Master, Moses In the temple. wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, 3 and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother *shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, "died, * band, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother: 7and the second took her to wife, and he died childless. And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also : and they left no children, and died. Last of all the woman died also. Therefore, in the resurrection, 8 when they shall rise, 'whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her 10 to wife. And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God? The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage : but they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: neither can they die any more : for they are equal unto the angels " of God in heaven; 18 and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection. 4 And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in 1 Mat. xxii. 23. 2 Lu. xx. 27, 8. 3 Mk. xii. 19. 4 Mat. xxii. 24, 5. 5 Lu. xx. 29. * deceased, Mat.)

2 And one of the scribes, 3 which was In the temple. a lawyer, “came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, “asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law ? 6 Which is the first commandment of all ? And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel ; The Lord our God is one Lord: and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength : 'this is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. 31 8 There is none other commandinent greater than these. 32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said

the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other 33 but he: and to love him with all the heart, and with all

the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the

strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than 34 all whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices. And when Jesus

saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question. Mat. xxii. 34,5.2 Mk. xii. 28. 3 Mat. xxii. 35. 4 Mk. xii. 28. 5 Mat. xxii. 35, 6.
