1AS they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples ahead

2telling them, "Go into the village in front of you and you will at once find there a donkey tethered, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me.

3Should anyone say anything to you, you are to say, 'The Lord needs them',and he will send them immediately."

4All this happened to fulfill the prophet's saying

5Tell ye the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy King cometh onto thee, Meek, and riding upon an ass, And upon a colt the foal of an ass.

6So the disciples went off and followed Jesus' instructions.

7They brought the donkey and the colt, and put their cloaks on them, and Jesus took his seat upon them.

8Then a vast crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut down branches from the trees and spread them in his path.

9The crowds who went in front of him and the crowds who followed behind him all shouted, "God save the Son of David! Blessed is the man who comes in the name of the Lord! God save him from on high!"

10And as he entered Jerusalem a shock ran through the whole city. "Who [is] this?" men cried.

11"This is Jesus the prophet," replied the crowd, "the man from Nazareth in Galilee!"

12Then Jesus went into the Templeprecincts and drove out all the buyers and sellers there. He overturned the tables of the moneychangers and the benches of those who sold doves,

13crying"It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer.' But you have turned it into a thieves' kitchen!"

14And there in the Temple the blind and the lame came to him, and he healed them.

15But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things he did, and that children were shouting in the Temple the words, "God save the Son of David", they were highly indignant.

16"Can't you hear what these children are saying?" they asked Jesus. "Yes," he replied, "and haven't you ever read the words, 'Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise'?"

17And he turned on his heel and went out of the city to Bethany, where he spent the night.

18In the morning he came hack early to the city and felt hungry.

19He saw a figtree growing by the side of the road, but when he got to it he discovered there was nothing on it but leaves. "No more fruit shall ever grow on you!" he said to it, and all at once the figtree withered away.

20When the disciples saw this happen they were simply amazed. "How on earth did the figtree wither away as suddenly as that?" they asked.

21"Believe me," replied Jesus, "if you have faith and have no doubts in your heart, you will not only do this to a figtree but even if you should say to this hill, 'Be uprooted and thrown into the sea',it will happen!

22Everything you ask for in prayer, if you have faith, you will receive."

23Then when he had entered the Temple and was in the act of teaching, the chief priests and Jewish elders came up to him and said, "What authority have you for what you're doing, and who gave you that authority?"

24"I am also going to ask you one question," Jesus replied to them, "and if you answer it I will tell you what authority I have for what I do.

25John's baptism, now, did it come from Heaven or was it purely human?" At this they began arguing among themselves, "If we say, 'It came from Heaven',he will say to us, 'Then why didn't you believe in him?'

26But if we should say, 'It was purely human'well, we are afraid of the peoplefor all of them consider John was a prophet."

27So they answered Jesus, "We do not know." "Then I will not tell you by what authority I do these things!" returned Jesus.

28"But what is your opinion about this? There was a man with two sons. He went to the first and said, 'Go and work in my vineyard today, my son.'

29He said, 'I won't'.But afterwards he changed his mind and went.

30Then the father approached the second son with the same request. He said, 'All right, sir'but he never went.

31Which of these two did what his father wanted?" "The first one," they replied. "Yes," retorted Jesus, "and I tell you that taxcollectors and prostitutes are going into the kingdom of God in float of you!"

32"For John came to you as a truly good man, and you did not believe in himyet the taxcollectors and the prostitutes did! And, even after seeing that, you would not change your minds and believe him."

33"Now listen to another parable. There was once a man, a landowner, who planted a vineyard, fenced it round, dug out a hole for the winepress and built a watchtower. Then he let it out to farmworkers and went abroad.

34When the vintagetime approached he sent his servants to the farmworkers to receive his share of the crop.

35But they took his servants, beat up one, killed another, and stoned a third.

36Then he sent some more servants, a larger party than the first, but they treated them in just the same way.

37Finally he sent his son, saying, 'They will respect my son.'

38Yet when the farmworkers saw the son they said to each other, 'This fellow is the future owner. Come on, let's kill him and we shall get everything that he would have had!'

39So they took him, threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.

40Now when the owner of the vineyard returns, what will he do to those farmworkers?"

41"He will kill those scoundrels without mercy," they replied, "and will let the vineyard out to other tenants, who will give him the produce at the right season."

42"And have you never read these words of scripture," said Jesus to them: The stone which the builders rejected, The same was made the head of the comer: This was from the Lord, And it is marvelous in our eyes?

43"Here, I tell you, lies the reason why the kingdom of God is going to be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its proper fruit.

44(Any man who falls on this stone will be shattered, and any man upon whom it falls will he ground into dust)."

45When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables they realised that he was speaking about them.

46They longed to get their hands on him, but they were afraid of the crowds, who regarded him as a prophet.
