The Authority of Jesus Questioned  Lk.20.1-8 Passover, c.30ce (Jerusalem)[ Lk.20.1-8 → ] - Mt.21.23-27, Mk.11.27-33

1ONE DAY, as he was teaching the people in the temple and telling them the good news, the priests and lawyers, and the elders with them, came upon him and accosted him. 2'Tell us', they said, 'by what authority you are acting like this; who gave you this authority?' 3He answered them, 'I have a question to ask you too: tell me, 4was the baptism of John from God or from men?' 5This set them arguing among themselves: 'If we say, "from God", he will say, "Why did you not believe him?" 6And if we say, "from men", the people will all stone us, for they are convinced that John was a prophet.' 7So they replied that they could not tell. 8And Jesus said to them, 'Neither will I tell you by what authority I act.'

The Parable of the Vineyard and the Tenants  Lk.20.9-19 (Jerusalem)[ Lk.20.9-19 → ] - Mt.21.33-46, Mk.12.1-12, Is.5.1

9He went on to tell the people this parable: 'A man planted a vineyard, let it out to vine-growers, and went abroad for a long time. 10When the season came, he sent a servant to the tenants to collect from them his share of the produce; but the tenants thrashed him and sent him away empty-handed. 11He tried again and sent a second servant; but he also was thrashed, outrageously treated, and sent away empty-handed. 12He tried once more with a third; this one too they wounded and flung out. 13Then the owner of the vineyard said, "What am I to do? I will send my own dear son; Or: my only son. perhaps they will respect him." 14But when the tenants saw him they talked it over together. "This is the heir," they said; "let us kill him so that the property may come to us." 15So they flung him out of the vineyard and killed him. What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? 16He will come and put these tenants to death and let the vineyard to others.'

17 [ Ps.118.22. ] When they heard this, they said, 'God forbid!' But he looked straight at them and said, 'Then what does this text of Scripture mean: "The stone which the builders rejected has become the main corner-stone"? 18Any man who falls on that stone will be dashed to pieces; and if it falls on a man he will be crushed by it.'

Paying Taxes to Caesar  Lk.20.19-26[ Lk.20.19-26 → ] - Mt.22.15-22, Mk.12.13-17

19The lawyers and chief priests wanted to lay hands on him there and then, for they saw that this parable was aimed at them; but they were afraid of the people. 20So they watched their opportunity and sent secret agents in the guise of honest men, to seize upon some word of his as a pretext for handing him over to the authority and jurisdiction of the Governor. 21They put a question to him: 'Master,' they said, 'we know that what you speak and teach is sound; you pay deference to no one, but teach in all honesty the way of life that God requires. 22Are we or are we not permitted to pay taxes to the Roman Emperor?' 23He saw through their trick and said, 'Show me a silver piece. 24Whose head does it bear, and whose inscription?' 'Caesar's', they replied. 25'Very well then,' he said, 'pay Caesar what is due to Caesar, and pay God what is due to God.' 26Thus their attempt to catch him out in public failed, and, astonished by his reply, they fell silent.

The Question about the Resurrection  Lk.20.27-40 (Jerusalem)[ Lk.20.27-40 → ] - Mt.22.23-33, Mk.12.18-27

27Then some Sadducees came forward. They are the people who deny that there is a resurrection. Their question was this: 28'Master, Moses laid it down for us that if there are brothers, and one dies leaving a wife but no child, then the next should marry the widow and carry on his brother's family. 29Now, there were seven brothers: the first took a wife and died childless; 30then the second married her, 31then the third. In this way the seven of them died leaving no children. 32Afterwards the woman also died. 33At the resurrection whose wife is she to be, since all seven had married her?' 34Jesus said to them, 'The men and women of this world marry; 35but those who have been judged worthy of a place in the other world and of the resurrection from the dead, do not marry, 36for they are not subject to death any longer. They are like angels; they are sons of God, because they share in the resurrection. 37 [ Ex.3.2-6. ] That the dead are raised to life again is shown by Moses himself in the story of the burning bush, when he calls the Lord, "the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob". 38God is not God of the dead but of the living; for him all are alive.' Or: they are all.

39At this some of the lawyers said, 'Well spoken, Master.' 40For there was no further question that they ventured to put to him.

The Question about David's Son  Lk.20.41-44 (Jerusalem)[ Lk.20.41-44 → ] - Mt.22.41-46, Mk.12.35-37

41He said to them, 'How can they say that the Messiah is son of David? 42 [ Ps.110.1. ] For David himself says in the Book of Psalms: "The Lord said to my Lord, 'Sit at my right hand 43until I make your enemies your footstool.' " 44Thus David calls him "Lord"; how then can he be David's son?'

The Denouncing of the Scribes  Lk.20.45-47[ Lk.20.45-47 → ] - Mt.23.1-36, Mk.12.38-40, Lk.11.37-54

45In the hearing of all the people Jesus said to his disciples: 46'Beware of the doctors of the law who love to walk up and down in long robes, and have a great liking for respectful greetings in the street, the chief seats in our synagogues, and places of honour at feasts. 47These are the men who eat up the property of widows, while they say long prayers for appearance' sake; and they will receive the severest sentence.'
