And it is marvelous in our eyes’
? ”[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:14 - When they had come, they said to Him, “Teacher, we know that You are true, and care about no one; for You do not regard the person of men, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:15 - “Shall we pay, or shall we not pay?” But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, “Why do you test Me? Bring Me a denarius that I may see it.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:19 - “Teacher, Moses wrote to us that if a man’s brother dies, and leaves his wife behind, and leaves no children, his brother should take his wife and raise up offspring for his brother.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:21 - “And the second took her, and he died; nor did he leave any offspring. And the third likewise.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:22 - “So the seven had her and left no offspring. Last of all the woman died also.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:24 - Jesus answered and said to them, “Are you not therefore mistaken, because you do not know the Scriptures nor the power of God?

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:25 - “For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:26 - “But concerning the dead, that they rise, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the burning bush passage, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’ ?[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:27 - “He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. You are therefore greatly mistaken.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:33 - “And to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, with all the soul,[fn] and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is more than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:34 - Now when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, He said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” But after that no one dared question Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:35 - Then Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the temple, “How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the Son of David?

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 12:36 - “For David himself said by the Holy Spirit:
