12:3 They took him, beat him, and sent him away empty.
12:4 Again, he sent another servant to them; and they threw stones at him, wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully treated.
12:5 Again he sent another; and they killed him; and many others, beating some, and killing some.
12:6 Therefore he had yet one, a beloved son, he sent him last to them, saying, `They will respect my son.`
12:7 But those farmers said among themselves, `This is the heir. Come, let`s kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.`
12:8 They took him, 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 farmers, and will give the vineyard to others.
12:11 This was from the Lord, It is marvelous in our eyes`?"
12:12 They tried to seize him, but they feared the multitude; for they perceived that he spoke the parable against them. They left him, and went away.
12:13 They sent some of the Pharisees and of the Herodians to him, that they might catch him in words.
12:14 When they had come, they asked him, "Teacher, we know that you are honest, and don`t defer to anyone; for you aren`t partial to anyone, but truly teach the way of God. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?
12:15 Shall we give, or shall we not give?" But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, "Why do you test me? Bring me a denarius, that I may see it."
12:16 They brought it. He said to them, "Whose is this image and inscription?" They said to him, "Caesar`s."
12:17 Jesus answered them, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar`s, and to God the things that are God`s." They marveled greatly at him.
12:18 There came to him Sadducees, who say that there is no resurrection. They asked him, saying,
12:20 There were seven brothers. The first took a wife, and dying left no children.
12:21 The second took her, and died, leaving no children behind him. The third likewise;
12:22 and the seven took her and left no children. Last of all the woman also died.
12:23 In the resurrection, when they rise, whose wife will she be of them? For the seven had her as a wife."
12:25 For when they will rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.
12:28 One of the scribes came, and heard them questioning together. Knowing that he had answered them well, asked him, "What commandment is the greatest of all?"
12:29 Jesus answered, "The greatest is, `Hear, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one:
12:31 The second is like this, `You shall love your neighbor as yourself.` There is no other commandment greater than these."
12:32 The scribe said to him, "Truly, teacher, you have said well that he is one, and there is none other but he,
12:33 and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices."
12:35 Jesus responded, as he taught in the temple, "How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David?
12:37 Therefore David himself calls him Lord, so how can he be his son?" The common people heard him gladly.
12:39 and chief seats in the synagogues, and chief places at feasts:
12:40 those who devour widows` houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation."
12:42 There came a poor widow, and she cast in two lepta, which make a quadrans.
12:43 He called his disciples to himself, and said to them, "Most assuredly I tell you, this poor widow gave more than all those who are giving into the treasury,
12:44 for they all gave out of their abundance, but she, out of her poverty, gave all that she had to live on.
