1 And he began to tell them in parables: a certain man planted a vineyard and enclosed a fence, and dug up a grindstone, and built a tower, and, giving it to the winegrowers, went away.
2 And in due time he sent a servant to the wine-growers - to receive from the wine-growers fruits from the vineyard.
3 They seized him, beat him, and sent him away with nothing.
4 Again sent another servant to them; and they broke his head with stones and released him with dishonor.
5 And again he sent another: and they killed him; and many others were either beaten or killed.
6 Having one more son, kind to him, he finally sent him to them, saying: My son will be ashamed.
7 But the winegrowers said to each other: this is the heir; let’s go, kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.
eight And, seizing him, they killed and threw him out of the vineyard.
nine What will the owner of the vineyard do? “He will come and put to death the winegrowers, and give the vineyard to others.”
ten Surely you have not read this in the Scriptures: the stone that the builders rejected has become the head of the corner;
eleven it is from the Lord, and it is marvelous in our eyes.
12 And they tried to seize Him, but were afraid of the people, for they realized that they had told a parable about them; and having left him, they departed.

13 And they send to him some of the Pharisees and Herodians to catch him in the word.
fourteen And they, having come, say to Him: Teacher! we know that You are fair and do not care about pleasing anyone, because you do not look at any person, but truly teach the ways of God. Is Caesar allowed to give or not? Should we give or not give?
fifteen But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them: Why are you tempting Me? bring me a denarius to see me.
16 They brought. Then he says to them: whose image and inscription is this? They said unto him, Caesar's.
17 Jesus answered them: give Caesar to Caesar, and God to God. And they marveled at him.

18 Then the Sadducees came to Him, who said that there was no resurrection, and asked Him, saying:
19 Teacher! Moses wrote to us: if anyone has a brother who dies and leaves his wife, but does not leave children, then his brother will take his wife and restore the seed to his brother.
20 There were seven brothers: the first took his wife and, dying, did not leave the children.
21 He took her second and died, and he did not leave the children; also the third one.
22 Seven took [for themselves] and did not leave children. After all, the wife also died.
23 So, in the resurrection, when they are resurrected, which of them will she be a wife? For seven had her wife?
24 Jesus answered them: Do you mislead you by not knowing the Scriptures or the power of God?
25 For when they rise from the dead, [then] they will neither marry nor marry, but will be like angels in heaven.
26 And about the dead, that they will be resurrected, haven't you read in the book of Moses, as God at the dome said to him: I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
27 [God] is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. So, you are very mistaken.

28 One of the scribes, hearing their debate and seeing that [Jesus] answered them well, came up and asked Him: what is the first of all the commandments?
29th Jesus answered him: the first of all the commandments: listen, Israel! The Lord our God is the one Lord;
thirty and love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength, - this is the first commandment!
31 The second is like her: love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other greater commandment.
32 The scribe said to him: well, Master! You have said the truth that alone is God and there is none other than Him;
33 and to love Him with all my heart and with all my mind, and with all my soul, and with all my strength, and to love my neighbor as myself, is more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.
34 Jesus, seeing that he reasonably answered, said to him: You are not far from the Kingdom of God. After that, no one dared to ask Him.

35 Continuing to teach in the temple, Jesus said: how do the scribes say that Christ is the Son of David?
36 For David himself said by the Holy Spirit: the Lord said unto my Lord: Sit on my right hand, until I put thy enemies at the foot of thy feet.
37 So David himself calls Him Lord: how is He His Son? And many people listened to him with delight.
38 And he said unto them in his doctrine: beware of the scribes who love to walk in long robes and [receive] greetings in public gatherings,
39 to sit in front in the synagogues and recline in the first [place] at the feasts, -
40 These, devoured by the houses of widows and for a long time praying, will receive grave condemnation.

41 And Jesus sat against the treasury and watched as the people put money into the treasury. Many rich put a lot.
42 Arriving, one poor widow put two mites, which makes up the codrant.
43 Having called His disciples, [Jesus] said to them: Verily I say unto you, that this poor widow laid more than all who were in the treasury,
44 for they all laid down from her abundance, and from her poverty she put all that she had, all her food.
