But if we say, ‘Of human origin,’ all the people will stone us, because they are persuaded that John was a prophet.”

At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed.

So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. “What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them?

Tools specific to Luk 20:16

He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.” When the people heard this, they said, “God forbid!”

Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written: “ ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone’[fn]?

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:18

Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.”

Tools specific to Luk 20:19

The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people.

Tools specific to Luk 20:20

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:20

Keeping a close watch on him, they sent spies, who pretended to be sincere. They hoped to catch Jesus in something he said, so that they might hand him over to the power and authority of the governor.

Tools specific to Luk 20:21

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:21

So the spies questioned him: “Teacher, we know that you speak and teach what is right, and that you do not show partiality but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.

Tools specific to Luk 20:22

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:22

He said to them, “Then give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”

Tools specific to Luk 20:26

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:26

They were unable to trap him in what he had said there in public. And astonished by his answer, they became silent.

Some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus with a question.

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:29

The second

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:31

and then the third married her, and in the same way the seven died, leaving no children.

Tools specific to Luk 20:32

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:32

Finally, the woman died too.

Tools specific to Luk 20:33

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:33

Now then, at the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”

Tools specific to Luk 20:34

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:34

Jesus replied, “The people of this age marry and are given in marriage.

Tools specific to Luk 20:35

But those who are considered worthy of taking part in the age to come and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage,

Tools specific to Luk 20:36

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:36

and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection.

Tools specific to Luk 20:37

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:37

But in the account of the burning bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’[fn]

He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”

And no one dared to ask him any more questions.

Tools specific to Luk 20:41

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:41

Then Jesus said to them, “Why is it said that the Messiah is the son of David?

Tools specific to Luk 20:42

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:42

David himself declares in the Book of Psalms: “ ‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand

Tools specific to Luk 20:43

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:43

until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.” ’[fn]

Tools specific to Luk 20:44

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:44

David calls him ‘Lord.’ How then can he be his son?”

Tools specific to Luk 20:45

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:45

While all the people were listening, Jesus said to his disciples,

Tools specific to Luk 20:46

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:46

“Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets.

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:47

They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. These men will be punished most severely.”
