Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:1 - Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:2 - "The kingdom of heaven can be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:3 - He sent his slaves to summon those who had been invited to the banquet, but they would not come.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:4 - Again he sent other slaves, saying, 'Tell those who have been invited, "Look! The feast I have prepared for you is ready. My oxen and fattened cattle have been slaughtered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet."'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:5 - But they were indifferent and went away, one to his farm, another to his business.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:6 - The rest seized his slaves, insolently mistreated them, and killed them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:7 - The king was furious! He sent his soldiers, and they put those murderers to death and set their city on fire.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:8 - Then he said to his slaves, 'The wedding is ready, but the ones who had been invited were not worthy.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:9 - So go into the main streets and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:10 - And those slaves went out into the streets and gathered all they found, both bad and good, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:11 - But when the king came in to see the wedding guests, he saw a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:12 - And he said to him, 'Friend, how did you get in here without wedding clothes?' But he had nothing to say.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:13 - Then the king said to his attendants, 'Tie him up hand and foot and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth!'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:14 - For many are called, but few are chosen."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:15 - Then the Pharisees went out and planned together to entrap him with his own words.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:16 - They sent to him their disciples along with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that you are truthful, and teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You do not court anyone's favor because you show no partiality.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:17 - Tell us then, what do you think? Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?"

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:18 - But Jesus realized their evil intentions and said, "Hypocrites! Why are you testing me?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:19 - Show me the coin used for the tax." So they brought him a denarius.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:20 - Jesus said to them, "Whose image is this, and whose inscription?"

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:21 - They replied, "Caesar's." He said to them, "Then give to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:22 - Now when they heard this they were stunned, and they left him and went away.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:23 - The same day Sadducees (who say there is no resurrection) came to him and asked him,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:24 - "Teacher, Moses said, 'If a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and father children for his brother.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:25 - Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children he left his wife to his brother.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:26 - The second did the same, and the third, down to the seventh.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:27 - Last of all, the woman died.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:28 - In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife of the seven will she be? For they all had married her."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:29 - Jesus answered them, "You are deceived, because you don't know the scriptures or the power of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:30 - For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:31 - Now as for the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:32 - 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not the God of the dead but of the living!"

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:33 - When the crowds heard this, they were amazed at his teaching.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:34 - Now when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they assembled together.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:35 - And one of them, an expert in religious law, asked him a question to test him:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:36 - "Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?"

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:37 - Jesus said to him, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:38 - This is the first and greatest commandment.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:39 - The second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:40 - All the law and the prophets depend on these two commandments."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:41 - While the Pharisees were assembled, Jesus asked them a question:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:42 - "What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?" They said, "The son of David."

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:43 - He said to them, "How then does David by the Spirit call him 'Lord,' saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:44 - 'The Lord said to my lord, "Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet"'?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:45 - If David then calls him 'Lord,' how can he be his son?"

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:46 - No one was able to answer him a word, and from that day on no one dared to question him any longer.
