1 He went on to speak to them in parables, 'A man planted a vineyard; he fenced it round, dug out a trough for the winepress and built a tower; then he leased it to tenants and went abroad.
Isa 5:1-4 Mark 13:34 Mark 4:2 Mark 4:33-34 Matt 25:14 Ps 80:8-16 Song 8:11-12
2 When the time came, he sent a servant to the tenants to collect from them his share of the produce of the vineyard.
2Chr 36:15 2Kgs 17:13 Ezra 9:11 Heb 1:1 Jer 25:4-5 Jer 35:15 Jer 44:4
3 But they seized the man, thrashed him and sent him away empty handed.
1Thess 2:15 2Chr 36:16 Acts 7:52 Heb 11:36-37 Jer 26:20-24 Jer 29:26 Neh 9:26
4 Next he sent another servant to them; him they beat about the head and treated shamefully.
5 And he sent another and him they killed; then a number of others, and they thrashed some and killed the rest.
Jer 7:25-28 Luke 6:22-23 Luke 6:36 Mark 9:13 Matt 5:12 Matt 21:35-36 Matt 22:6
6 He had still someone left: his beloved son. He sent him to them last of all, thinking, "They will respect my son."
Heb 1:1-2 Matt 3:17 1John 4:9 1John 5:11-12 Gen 22:2 Gen 22:12 Gen 37:3
7 But those tenants said to each other, "This is the heir. Come on, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours."
Acts 2:23 Acts 5:28 Acts 7:52 Acts 13:27-28 Gen 3:15 Gen 37:20 Isa 49:7
8 So they seized him and killed him and threw him out of the vineyard.
Heb 13:11-13 Luke 20:15 Matt 21:33 Matt 21:39
9 Now what will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and make an end of the tenants and give the vineyard to others.
Luke 19:27 Matt 21:43 Acts 13:46-48 Acts 28:23-28 Dan 9:26-27 Deut 4:26-27 Deut 28:15-68
10 Have you not read this text of scripture: The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone;
Ps 118:22-23 1Pet 2:7-8 Isa 28:16 Acts 4:11-12 Eph 2:20-22 Luke 20:17-18 Matt 21:42
11 this is the Lord's doing, and we marvel at it ?'
Acts 2:32-36 Acts 3:12-16 1Tim 3:16 Acts 2:12 Acts 13:40-41 Col 1:27 Eph 3:8-11
12 And they would have liked to arrest him, because they realised that the parable was aimed at them, but they were afraid of the crowds. So they left him alone and went away.
Mark 11:18 John 7:25 John 7:30 John 7:44 Mark 11:32 Matt 22:22 1Kgs 20:38-41
13 Next they sent to him some Pharisees and some Herodians to catch him out in what he said.
Luke 11:54 Luke 20:20-26 Mark 3:6 Mark 8:15 Isa 29:21 Jer 18:18 Matt 16:6
14 These came and said to him, 'Master, we know that you are an honest man, that you are not afraid of anyone, because human rank means nothing to you, and that you teach the way of God in all honesty. Is it permissible to pay taxes to Caesar or not? Should we pay or not?'
1Thess 2:4 2Chr 18:13 2Chr 19:7 2Cor 2:2 2Cor 2:17 Prov 26:23-26 2Cor 5:11
15 Recognising their hypocrisy he said to them, 'Why are you putting me to the test? Hand me a denarius and let me see it.'
1Cor 10:9 Acts 5:9 Ezek 17:2 Heb 4:13 John 2:24-25 John 21:17 Luke 20:23
16 They handed him one and he said to them, 'Whose portrait is this? Whose title?' They said to him, 'Caesar's.'
2Tim 2:19 Luke 20:24-26 Matt 22:19-22 Rev 3:12
17 Jesus said to them, 'Pay Caesar what belongs to Caesar -- and God what belongs to God.' And they were amazed at him.
Rom 13:7 1Cor 6:19-20 1Cor 14:24-25 1Pet 2:17 2Cor 5:14-15 Acts 4:19-20 Eccl 5:4-5
18 Then some Sadducees -- who deny that there is a resurrection -- came to him and they put this question to him,
Acts 4:1-2 Matt 22:23-33 1Cor 15:13-18 2Tim 2:18 Acts 23:6-9 Luke 20:27-40
19 'Master, Moses prescribed for us that if a man's brother dies leaving a wife but no child, the man must marry the widow to raise up children for his brother.
Deut 25:5-10 Gen 38:8 Ruth 1:11-13 Ruth 4:5
20 Now there were seven brothers; the first married a wife and then died leaving no children.
Luke 20:29-33 Matt 22:25-28
21 The second married the widow, and he too died leaving no children; with the third it was the same,
22 and none of the seven left any children. Last of all the woman herself died.
23 Now at the resurrection, when they rise again, whose wife will she be, since she had been married to all seven?'
24 Jesus said to them, 'Surely the reason why you are wrong is that you understand neither the scriptures nor the power of God.
John 20:9 2Tim 3:15-17 Hos 6:2 Acts 17:11 Eph 1:19 Hos 6:6 Isa 25:8
25 For when they rise from the dead, men and women do not marry; no, they are like the angels in heaven.
Luke 20:35-36 Matt 22:30 1Cor 15:42-54 1John 3:2 Heb 12:22-23
26 Now about the dead rising again, have you never read in the Book of Moses, in the passage about the bush, how God spoke to him and said: I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob?
Luke 20:37 Gen 17:7-8 Acts 7:30-32 Exod 3:2-6 Exod 3:16 Gen 26:24 Gen 28:13
27 He is God, not of the dead, but of the living. You are very much mistaken.'
Rom 14:9 Rom 4:17 Heb 11:13-16 Mark 12:24 Heb 3:10 Prov 19:27
28 One of the scribes who had listened to them debating appreciated that Jesus had given a good answer and put a further question to him, 'Which is the first of all the commandments?'
Matt 22:34-40 Luke 10:25-28 Luke 20:39 Luke 11:42 Matt 5:19 Matt 19:18 Matt 23:23
29 Jesus replied, 'This is the first: Listen, Israel, the Lord our God is the one, only Lord,
Deut 6:4 Gal 3:20 Jude 1:25 1Cor 8:4 Luke 10:27 Rom 3:30 Deut 30:6
30 and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength.
31 The second is this: You must love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.'
Rom 13:8-9 Matt 7:12 Matt 19:18-19 Matt 22:39 Gal 5:14 1Cor 13:4-8 1John 4:21
32 The scribe said to him, 'Well spoken, Master; what you have said is true, that he is one and there is no other.
Deut 4:35 Deut 4:39 Isa 44:8 Isa 45:14 Isa 45:18 Isa 46:9 Deut 5:7
33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and strength, and to love your neighbour as yourself, this is far more important than any burnt offering or sacrifice.'
Hos 6:6 Mic 6:6-8 1Sam 15:22 Matt 12:7 Matt 9:13 1Cor 13:1-3 Ps 50:8-15
34 Jesus, seeing how wisely he had spoken, said, 'You are not far from the kingdom of God.' And after that no one dared to question him any more.
Luke 20:40 Matt 22:46 Col 4:6 Titus 1:9-11 Gal 2:19 Job 32:15-16 Matt 12:20
35 While teaching in the Temple, Jesus said, 'How can the scribes maintain that the Christ is the son of David?
Luke 20:41-44 Matt 26:55 John 7:42 John 18:20 Luke 19:47 Luke 20:1 Luke 21:37
36 David himself, moved by the Holy Spirit, said: The Lord declared to my Lord, take your seat at my right hand till I have made your enemies your footstool.
Ps 110:1 1Cor 15:25 Acts 2:34-36 Heb 1:13 Heb 10:12-13 Matt 22:43-45 2Sam 23:2
37 David himself calls him Lord; in what way then can he be his son?' And the great crowd listened to him with delight.
Rom 1:3-4 1Tim 3:16 Jas 2:5 John 7:46-49 John 12:9 Luke 19:48 Luke 21:38
38 In his teaching he said, 'Beware of the scribes who like to walk about in long robes, to be greeted respectfully in the market squares,
Luke 11:43 Luke 20:45-47 Matt 23:1-7 Luke 14:7-11 Mark 4:2 Matt 6:5 Matt 10:17
39 to take the front seats in the synagogues and the places of honour at banquets;
40 these are the men who devour the property of widows and for show offer long prayers. The more severe will be the sentence they receive.'
Luke 20:47 Matt 23:13 Matt 6:7 Matt 23:33 2Tim 3:6 Ezek 22:25 Luke 12:47-48
41 He sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the treasury, and many of the rich put in a great deal.
Luke 21:1-4 2Kgs 12:9 John 8:20 Matt 27:6
42 A poor widow came and put in two small coins, the equivalent of a penny.
43 Then he called his disciples and said to them, 'In truth I tell you, this poor widow has put more in than all who have contributed to the treasury;
2Cor 8:2 2Cor 8:12 2Cor 9:6-8 Acts 11:29 Exod 35:21-29 Matt 10:42
44 for they have all put in money they could spare, but she in her poverty has put in everything she possessed, all she had to live on.'
