|LUKE 019:047 - 048: And he was teaching
daily in the temple. The chief priests and the scribes and the principal
men of the people sought to destroy him; but they did not find anything they
could do, for all the people hung upon his words.
|LUKE 020:001 - 008: ONE DAY, as
he was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, the chief
priests and the scribes with the elders came up and said to him, "Tell us
by what authority you do these things, or who it is that gave you this
authority." He answered them, "I also will ask you
a question; now tell me, Was the baptism of John from heaven or from
men?" And they discussed it with one another, saying, "If we say,
'From heaven,' he will say, 'Why did you not believe him?' But if we say,
'From men,' all the people will stone us; for they are convinced that John
was a prophet." So they answered that they did not know whence it was. And
Jesus said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what
authority I do these things."
|LUKE 020:009 - 015a: And he began
to tell the people this parable: "A man planted a vineyard,
and let it out to tenants, and went into another country for a long while.
When the time came, he sent a servant to the tenants, that they should give
him some of the fruit of the vineyard; but the tenants beat him, and sent
him away empty-handed. And he sent another servant; him also they beat and
treated shamefully, and sent him away empty-handed. And he sent yet a third;
this one they wounded and cast out. Then the owner of the vineyard said,
'What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; it may be they will respect
him.' But when the tenants saw him, they said to themselves, 'This is the
heir; let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.' And they cast him
out of the vineyard and killed him."
||LUKE 020:015b - 018:
"What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them?
He will come and destroy those tenants, and give the vineyard to
others." When they heard this, they said, "God forbid!" 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'?
Every one who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; but when it falls
on any one it will crush him."
|LUKE 020:019 - 020: The scribes
and the chief priests tried to lay hands on him at that very hour, but they
feared the people; for they perceived that he had told this parable against
them. 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.
||LUKE 020:021 -026: They asked him,
"Teacher, we know that you speak and teach rightly, and show no partiality,
but truly teach the way of God. Is it lawful for us to give tribute to Caesar,
or not?" But he perceived their craftiness, and said to them,
"Show me a coin. Whose likeness and inscription has
it?" They said, "Caesar's." He said to them, "Then
render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that
are God's." 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.
||LUKE 020:027 -040: There came to
him some Sadducees, those who say that there is no resurrection, and they
asked him a question, saying, "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's
brother dies, having a wife but no children, the man must take the wife and
raise up children for his brother. Now there were seven brothers; the first
took a wife, and died without children; and the second and the third took
her, and likewise all seven left no children and died. Afterward the woman
also died. In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be?
For the seven had her as wife." And Jesus said to them,
"The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage;
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, for they cannot die
any more, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons
of the resurrection. 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. Now he is not God of the dead, but
of the living; for all live to him." And some of the scribes answered,
"Teacher, you have spoken well." For they no longer dared to ask him any
|LUKE 020:041 - 044: But he said
to them, "How can they say that the Christ is David's
son? For David himself says in the Book of Psalms, 'The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at my right hand, till I make thy enemies a stool for thy feet.' David
thus calls him Lord; so how is he his son?"
|LUKE 020:045 - 047: And in the hearing
of all the people he said to his disciples, "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, who devour widows' houses and for a pretense make long
prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation."
||LUKE 021:001 - 004: HE LOOKED up
and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury; and he saw a poor
widow put in two copper coins. And he said, "Truly
I tell you, this poor widow has put more than all of them; for they all
contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all
the living that she had."
|LUKE 021:005 - 009: And as some
spoke of the temple, how it was adorned with noble stones and offerings,
he said, "As for these things which you see, the days
will come when there shall not be left here one stone upon another that will
not be thrown down." And they asked him, "Teacher, when will this
be, and what will be the sign when this is about to take place?" And he said,
"Take heed that you are not led astray; for many will
come in my name, saying, 'I am he!' and, 'The time is at hand!' Do not go
after them. And when you hear of wars and tumults, do not be terrified; for
this must first take place, but the end will not be at once."
|LUKE 021:010 - 011: Then he said
to them, "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom; there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines
and pestilences; and there will be terrors and great signs from
||LUKE 021:012 - 015:
"But before all this they will lay their hands on you
and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, and you
will be brought before kings and governors for my name's sake. This will
be a time for you to bear testimony. Settle it therefore in your minds, not
to meditate beforehand how to answer; for I will give you a mouth and wisdom,
which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or
||LUKE 021:016 - 019:
"You will be delivered up even by parents and brothers
and kinsmen and friends, and some of you they will put to death; you will
be hated by all for my name's sake. But not a hair of your head will perish.
By your endurance you will gain your lives."
|LUKE 021:020 - 024:
"But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then
know that its desolation has come near. Then let those who are in Judea flee
to the mountains, and let those who are inside the city depart, and let not
those who are out in the country enter it; for these are days of vengeance,
to fulfil all that is written. Alas for those who are with child and for
those who give suck in those days! For great distress shall be upon the earth
and wrath upon this people; they will fall by the edge of the sword, and
be led captive among all nations; and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the
Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled."
|LUKE 021:025 - 028:
"And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars,
and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the
sea and the waves, men fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is
coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then
they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
Now when these things begin to take place, look up and raise your heads,
because your redemption is drawing near."
|LUKE 021:029 - 036: And he told
them a parable: "Look at the fig tree, and all the
trees; as soon as they come out in leaf, you see for yourselves and know
that the summer is already near. So also, when you see these things taking
place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Truly, I say to you, this
generation will not pass away till all has taken place. Heaven and earth
will pass away, but my words will not pass away. "But take heed to yourselves
lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares
of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a snare; for it will
come upon all who dwell upon the face of the whole earth. But watch at all
times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that
will take place, and to stand before the Son of man."
|LUKE 021:037 - 022:002: And every
day he was teaching in the temple, but at night he went out and lodged on
the mount called Olivet. And early in the morning all the people came to
him in the temple to hear him. NOW THE feast of Unleavened Bread drew near,
which is called the Passover. And the chief priests and the scribes were
seeking how to put him to death; for they feared the people.
