 <<  Lukas 20 >> 

1THEN one day as he was teaching the people in the Temple, and preaching the gospel to them, the chief priests, the scribes and elders confronted him in a body

2and asked him this direct question, "Tell us by whose authority you act as you dowho gave you such authority?"

3"I have a question for you, too," replied Jesus. "John's baptism, nowtell me,

4did it come from Heaven or was it purely human?"

5At this they began arguing with each other, saying, "If we say, 'from Heaven,' he will say to us, 'Then why didn't you believe in him?'

6but if we say it was purely human, this mob will stone us to death, for they are convinced that John was a prophet."

7So they replied that they did not know where it came from.

8"Then," returned Jesus, "neither will I tell you by what authority I do what I am doing."

9Then he turned to the people and told them this parable: "There was once a man who planted a vineyard, let it out to farmworkers, and went abroad for some time.

10Then, when the season arrived, he sent a servant to the formworkers so that they could give him his share of the crop. But the formworkers beat him up and sent him back emptyhanded.

11So be sent another servant, and they beat him up as well, manhandling him disgracefully, and sent him back emptyhanded.

12Then he sent a third servant, but after wounding him severely they threw him out.

13Then the owner of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do now? I will send them my son who is so dear to me. Perhaps they will respect him.'

14But when the farmworkers saw him, they talked the matter over with each other and said, 'This man is the heircome on, let's kill him, and the property will be ours!'

15And they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What then do you suppose the owner will do to them?

16He will come and destroy the men who wore working his property, and hand it over to others." When they heard this, they said, "God forbid!"

17But he looked them straight in the eyes and said, "Then what is the meaning of this scriptureThe stone which the builders rejected, The same was made the head of the corner?

18The man who falls on this stone will be broken, and the man on whom it fails will be crushed to powder."

19The scribes and chief priests longed to get their hands on him at that moment, but they were afraid of the people. They knew well enough that his parable referred to them.

20They watched him, however, and sent some spies into the crowd, pretending that they were honest men, to fasten on something that he might say which could be used to hand him over to the authority and power of the governor.

21These men asked him, "Master, we know that what you say and teach is right, and that you teach the way of God truly without fear or favor.

22Now, is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?"

23But Jesus saw through their cunning and said to them,

24"Show me one of the coins. Whose face is this, and whose name is in the inscription?" "Caesar's," they said.

25"Then give to Caesar," he replied, "what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to God."

26So his reply gave them no sort of handle that they could use against him publicly. And in fact they were so taken aback by his answer that they had nothing more to say.

27Then up came some of the Sadducees (who deny that there is any resurrection) and they asked him,

28"Master, Moses told us in the scripture, 'If a man's brother should die leaving a wife but no children, he should marry the widow and raise up a family for his brother.'

29Now, there were once seven brothers. The first married and died childless,

30and the second

31and the third married the woman, and in fact all the seven married her and died without leaving any children.

32Lastly the woman herself died.

33Now in this 'resurrection' whose wife is she of these seven men, for she was wife to all of them?"

34"People in this world," Jesus replied, "marry and are given in marriage.

35But those who are considered worthy of reaching that world, which means rising from the dead, neither marry nor are they given in marriage.

36They cannot die any more but live like the angels; for being children of the resurrection, they are the sons of God.

37But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed to be true in the story of the bush, when he calls the Lord the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.

38For God is not God of the dead, but of the living. For all men are alive to him."

39To this some of the scribes replied, "Master, that was a good answer."

40And indeed nobody had the courage to ask him any more questions.

41But Jesus went on to say, "How can they say that Christ is David's son?

42For David himself says in the book of psalmsThe Lord said unto my [Lord]. Sit thou on my right hand,

43Till I make thine enemies the footstool of thy feet.

44David is plainly calling him 'Lord'.How then can he be his [son]?"

45Then while everybody was listening, Jesus remarked to his disciples,

46"Be on your guard against the scribes, who enjoy walking round in long robes and love having men bow to them in public, getting front seats in the synagogue, and the best places at dinner parties

47while all the time they are battening on widows' property and covering it up with long prayers. These men are only heading for deeper damnation."
