12:1 And he began to speak unto them in parables. A man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge about it, and digged a pit for the winepress, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into another country.
12:3 And they took him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
12:4 And again he sent unto them another servant; and him they wounded in the head, and handled shamefully.
12:5 And he sent another; and him they killed: and many others; beating some, and killing some.
12:6 He had yet one, a beloved son: he sent him last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
12:7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.
12:8 And they took him, and killed him, and cast him forth out of the vineyard.
12:9 What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
12:11 This was from the Lord, And it is marvellous in our eyes?
12:12 And they sought to lay hold on him; and they feared the multitude; for they perceived that he spake the parable against them: and they left him, and went away.
12:13 And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, that they might catch him in talk.
12:14 And when they were come, they say unto him, Teacher, we know that thou art true, and carest not for any one; for thou regardest not the person of men, but of a truth teachest the way of God: Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
12:15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why make ye trial of me? bring me a denarius, that I may see it.
12:16 And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar`s.
12:17 And Jesus said unto them, Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar`s, and unto God the things that are God`s. And they marvelled greatly at him.
12:18 And there come unto him Sadducees, who say that there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,
12:20 There were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed;
12:21 and the second took her, and died, leaving no seed behind him; and the third likewise:
12:22 and the seven left no seed. Last of all the woman also died.
12:23 In the resurrection whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
12:25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as angels in heaven.
12:26 But as touching the dead, that they are raised; have ye not read in the book of Moses, in [the place concerning] the Bush, how God spake unto him, saying, I [am] the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
12:28 And one of the scribes came, and heard them questioning together, and knowing that he had answered them well, asked him, What commandment is the first of all?
12:29 Jesus answered, The first is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God, the Lord is one:
12:31 The second is this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Of a truth, Teacher, thou hast well said that he is one; and there is none other but he:
12:35 And Jesus answered and said, as he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that the Christ is the son of David?
12:37 David himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
12:39 and chief seats in the synagogues, and chief places at feasts:
12:40 they that devour widows` houses, and for a pretence make long prayers; these shall receive greater condemnation.
12:42 And there came a poor widow, and she cast in two mites, which make a farthing.
12:43 And he called unto him his disciples, and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, This poor widow cast in more than all they that are casting into the treasury:
12:44 for they all did cast in of their superfluity; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, [even] all her living.
