But if we say, 'From men,' all the people will stone us; for they are convinced that John was a prophet."

Tools specific to Luk 20:15

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:15

And they cast 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 destroy those tenants, and give the vineyard to others." When they heard this, they said, "God forbid!"

Tools specific to Luk 20:17

But he looked at them and said, "What then is this that is written: 'The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner'?

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:18

Every one who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; but when it falls on any one it will crush him."

Tools specific to Luk 20:19

So they watched him, and sent spies, who pretended to be sincere, that they might take hold of what he said, so as to deliver him up to the authority and jurisdiction of the governor.

Tools specific to Luk 20:21

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:21

They asked him, "Teacher, we know that you speak and teach rightly, and show no partiality, but truly teach the way of God.

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:22

Is it lawful for us to give tribute to Caesar, or not?"

But he perceived their craftiness, and said to them,

Tools specific to Luk 20:24

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:24

"Show me a coin. Whose likeness and inscription has it?" They said, "Caesar's."

Tools specific to Luk 20:25

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:25

He said to them, "Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."

Tools specific to Luk 20:26

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:26

And they were not able in the presence of the people to catch him by what he said; but marveling at his answer they were silent.

Tools specific to Luk 20:27

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:27

There came to him some Sadducees, those who say that there is no resurrection,

Tools specific to Luk 20:28

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:28

Tools specific to Luk 20:29

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:29

Now there were seven brothers; the first took a wife, and died without children;

Tools specific to Luk 20:30

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:30

and the second

Tools specific to Luk 20:31

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:31

and the third took her, and likewise all seven left no children and died.

Tools specific to Luk 20:32

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:32

Afterward the woman also died.

Tools specific to Luk 20:33

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:33

In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be? For the seven had her as wife."

Tools specific to Luk 20:34

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:34

And Jesus said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage;

Tools specific to Luk 20:35

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:35

but those who are accounted worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage,

Tools specific to Luk 20:36

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:36

for they cannot die any more, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.

Tools specific to Luk 20:37

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:37

But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the passage about the bush, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.

Tools specific to Luk 20:38

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:38

Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living; for all live to him."

Tools specific to Luk 20:39

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:39

And some of the scribes answered, "Teacher, you have spoken well."

Tools specific to Luk 20:40

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:40

Tools specific to Luk 20:41

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:41

But he said to them, "How can they say that the Christ is David's son?

Tools specific to Luk 20:42

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:42

For David himself says 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

till I make thy enemies a stool for thy feet.'

Tools specific to Luk 20:44

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:44

David thus calls him Lord; so how is he his son?"

Tools specific to Luk 20:45

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:45

And in the hearing of all the people he said to his disciples,

Tools specific to Luk 20:46

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:46

"Beware of the scribes, who like to go about in long robes, and love salutations in the market places and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts,

Tools specific to Luk 20:47

Unchecked Copy Box Luk 20:47

who devour widows' houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation."
