22:1 Jesus answered and spoke again in parables to them, saying,
22:2 The Kingdom of Heaven is like a certain king, who made a marriage feast for his son,
22:3 and sent forth his servants to call those who were invited to the marriage feast, but they would not come.
22:4 Again he sent forth other servants, saying, `Tell those who are invited, "Behold, I have made ready my dinner. My oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the marriage feast."`
22:6 and the rest grabbed his servants, and treated them shamefully, and killed them.
22:7 But the king was angry, and he sent his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city.
22:8 Then he said to his servants, `The wedding is ready, but they who were invited were not worthy.
22:9 Go therefore to the intersections of the highways, and as many as you may find, invite to the marriage feast.`
22:10 Those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together as many as they found, both bad and good. The wedding was filled with guests.
22:11 But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who didn`t have on wedding-clothing,
22:12 and he said to him, `Friend, how did you come in here not having wedding-clothing?` He was speechless.
22:14 For many are called, but few chosen."
22:15 Then the Pharisees went and took counsel how they might entrap him in his talk.
22:16 They sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that you are honest, and teach the way of God in truth, no matter who you teach, for you aren`t partial to anyone.
22:17 Tell us therefore, what do you think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?"
22:18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, "Why do you test me, you hypocrites?
22:19 Show me the tax money." They brought to him a denarius.
22:20 He asked them, "Whose is this image and inscription?"
22:21 They said to him, "Caesar`s." Then he said to them, "Give therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar`s, and to God the things that are God`s."
22:22 When they heard it, they marveled, and left him, and went away.
22:23 On that day Sadducees (those who say that there is no resurrection) came to him. They asked him,
22:24 saying, "Teacher, Moses said, `If a man dies, having no children, his brother will marry his wife, and raise up seed for his brother.`
22:25 Now there were with us seven brothers. The first married and died, and having no seed left his wife to his brother.
22:26 In like manner the second also, and the third, to the seventh.
22:27 After them all, the woman died.
22:28 In the resurrection therefore, whose wife will she be of the seven? For they all had her."
22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like God`s angels in heaven.
22:31 But concerning the resurrection of the dead, haven`t you read that which was spoken to you by God, saying,
22:33 When the multitudes heard it, they were astonished at his teaching.
22:34 But the Pharisees, when they heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, gathered themselves together.
22:35 One of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him.
22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
22:39 A second likewise is this, `You shall love your neighbor as yourself.`
22:41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question,
22:42 saying, "What do you think of the Christ? Whose son is he?" They said to him, "Of David."
22:43 He said to them, "How then does David in the Spirit call him Lord, saying,
22:45 If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son?"
