all the chief priests and Jewish leaders made the decision to kill Jesus.

Early in the morning, all the chief priests and Jewish leaders made the decision to kill Jesus.

And they bound Him and led Him away and handed Him over to Pilate the governor.

When the traitor Judas saw that Jesus had been sentenced to death, he was sorry. Then he returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and Jewish leaders.

He said, "I have sinned betraying innocent people, until he was sentenced to death!" But they replied, "we dont care, That's your own business!

Then Yudas threw down the pieces of silver into the temple and went away and hanged himself.

The chief priests picked up the money and said, "This money is blood money. According to religious law, this money should not be put in place an offering in the Temple."

Then after they agreed, they use the money to buy land, called the potter's field. The land was used for the burial of strangers.

That is why to this day was called "Land of Blood".

Then were fulfilled the words spoken by Jeremiah the prophet when he said, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of Him on Whom a price had been set by some of the sons of Israel, And the money they use to buy the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me."

Peter deny Jesus

Peter was sitting outside in the yard. One of female came, and said to Peter, "You also were with Jesus of Galilee?"

But he denied to them all. "I do not know what you mean," answered Peter,

then he went to the door yard. A servant of another woman who saw Peter, and said to people there, "This man was also together with Jesus of Nazareth."

Then he denied it again, and swear. "Really I do not know the man!" said Peter.

Not long after that, people who were there came to Peter and said: "Surely you also one of them, it is evident from the language."

Then Peter began to swear and said, "I do not know the man!" At that moment the rooster crowed.

And Peter remembered that Jesus had said to him, "Before the cock crows you three times deny Me." Then Peter went out, and cry.

Peter would deny Jesus

And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Then Jesus said to His followers, "On this night you will all run away from me, for the scripture says: God said, 'I will kill the shepherd and his sheep flock will be scattered."

But after I am raised up [to life again], I will go ahead of you to Galilee.

Peter answered him: "Even if they were all shaken his faith because of you, I never."

Jesus said to him: "I say to you, this night, before the cock crows you will deny me three times already."

Peter said to Him, Even if I must die with You, I will not deny or disown You! And all the disciples said the same thing.

Jesus said, this is My blood for the forgiveness of sins.

When they were eating, Jesus took bread, and then said a prayer of gratitude. Then he cut the bread apart with his hands and gave it to His disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body."

Then jesus took a cup of wine, then give thanks to God. Then he gave the cup to the disciples, saying, "Drink all of you.

For this is My blood of the new covenant, which [ ratifies the agreement and] is being poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

I say to you, I shall not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it with you new and of superior quality in My Father's kingdom. "

Jesus ate the Passover with His disciples

On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Him. They asked, "Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover supper?"

He said, Go into the city to a certain man and say to him, The Master says: My time is near; I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.

Followers of Jesus do what Jesus told them. They went to prepare the Passover meal.

After the evening, Jesus and His twelve disciples sat down to eat.

While they were eating, Jesus said, "Listen: one from among you will betray Me."

At that, the followers of Jesus became very sad. And they, one by one began to ask Jesus, "Certainly not me who you mean?"

Jesus answered, "Those who immerse the bread into the bowl together Me, he shall betray me.

Indeed, the Son of Man will die as it is written in the Bible. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It's better for him if he was never born "

Then Judas the traitor was said, "Certainly not me that Rabbi mean?" Jesus replied, "That's how you say!"

Monday, 25 October 2010

Judas betrayed Jesus

Then one of the Twelve [apostles], who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests

He said to them, "What will you give me if I deliver him unto you?" So they counted thirty pieces of silver, then give the money to him.

Starting from that time Judas find opportunity to betray Jesus.

When Jesus was in Bethany, in Simon's house

Now when Jesus came back to Bethany and was in the house of Simon the leper,

A woman came up to Him with an alabaster flask of very precious perfume, and she poured it on His head as He reclined at table.

And when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, For what purpose is all this waste?

For this perfume might have been sold for a large sum and the money given to the poor.

But Jesus, fully aware of this, said to them, Why do you bother the woman? She has done a noble (praiseworthy and beautiful) thing to Me.

For you always have the poor among you, but you will not always have Me.

In pouring this perfume on My body she has done something to prepare Me for My burial.

Truly I tell you, wherever this good news (the Gospel) is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will be told also, in memory of her.

Notice the fourth of the suffering of Jesus - The plan to kill Jesus

WHEN JESUS had ended this discourse, He said to His disciples,

You know that the Passover is in two days--and the Son of Man will be delivered up treacherously to be crucified.

Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in the [ open] court of the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas,

And consulted together in order to arrest Jesus by stratagem secretly and put Him to death.

But they said, It must not be during the Feast, for fear that there will be a riot among the people.

Thursday, 21 October 2010

Jesus said, people who not do the will of God be punished with everlasting punishment, while those who do the will of God will have eternal life.

When the Son of Man comes in His glory (His majesty and splendor), and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.

All nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them [the people] from one another as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats;

And He will cause the sheep to stand at His right hand, but the goats at His left.

Then the King will say to those at His right hand, Come, you blessed of My Father [you favored of God and appointed to eternal salvation], inherit (receive as your own) the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you brought Me together with yourselves and welcomed and entertained and lodged Me,

I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me with help and ministering care, I was in prison and you came to see Me.

Then the just and upright will answer Him, Lord, when did we see You hungry and gave You food, or thirsty and gave You something to drink?

And when did we see You a stranger and welcomed and entertained You, or naked and clothed You?

And when did we see You sick or in prison and came to visit You?

And the King will reply to them, Truly I tell you, in so far as you did it for one of the least [ in the estimation of men] of these My brethren, you did it for Me.

Then He will say to those at His left hand, Begone from Me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels!

For I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink,

I was a stranger and you did not welcome Me and entertain Me, I was naked and you did not clothe Me, I was sick and in prison and you did not visit Me with help and ministering care.

Then they also [in their turn] will answer, Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?

And He will reply to them, Solemnly I declare to you, in so far as you failed to do it for the least [ in the estimation of men] of these, you failed to do it for Me.

Then they will go away into eternal punishment, but those who are just and upright and in right standing with God into eternal life.

Jesus said, kingdom of heaven is like a man who would travel and trusted his property to his servants.

For it is like a man who was about to take a long journey, and he called his servants together and entrusted them with his property.

To one he gave five talents [probably about $5,000], to another two, to another one--to each in proportion to his own personal ability. Then he departed and left the country.

He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he gained five talents more.

And likewise he who had received the two talents--he also gained two talents more.

But he who had received the one talent went and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money.

Now after a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.

And he who had received the five talents came and brought him five more, saying, Master, you entrusted to me five talents; see, here I have gained five talents more.

His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy (the delight, the blessedness) which your master enjoys.

And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, Master, you entrusted two talents to me; here I have gained two talents more.

His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy (the delight, the blessedness) which your master enjoys.

He who had received one talent also came forward, saying, Master, I knew you to be a harsh and hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you had not winnowed [the grain].

So I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is your own.

But his master answered him, You wicked and lazy and idle servant! Did you indeed know that I reap where I have not sowed and gather [grain] where I have not winnowed?

Then you should have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received what was my own with interest.

So take the talent away from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents.

For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will be furnished richly so that he will have an abundance; but from the one who does not have, even what he does have will be taken away.

And throw the good-for-nothing servant into the outer darkness; there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.

Jesus explain about The parable When the Son of Man came to be God

THEN THE kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.

Five of them were foolish (thoughtless, without forethought) and five were wise (sensible, intelligent, and prudent).

For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra] oil with them;

But the wise took flasks of oil along with them [also] with their lamps.

While the bridegroom lingered and was slow in coming, they all began nodding their heads, and they fell asleep.

But at midnight there was a shout, Behold, the bridegroom! Go out to meet him!

Then all those virgins got up and put their own lamps in order.

And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.

But the wise replied, There will not be enough for us and for you; go instead to the dealers and buy for yourselves.

But while they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were prepared went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut.

Later the other virgins also came and said, Lord, Lord, open [the door] to us!

But He replied, I solemnly declare to you, I do not know you [I am not acquainted with you].

Watch therefore [give strict attention and be cautious and active], for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will come.

Tell Me The Story Of Jesus / I Love To Tell The Story

Jesus explain about The parable of the faithful servant and the servant of evil

Who then is the faithful, thoughtful, and wise servant, whom his master has put in charge of his household to give to the others the food and supplies at the proper time?

Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) is that servant whom, when his master comes, he will find so doing.

I solemnly declare to you, he will set him over all his possessions.

But if that servant is wicked and says to himself, My master is delayed and is going to be gone a long time,

And begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with the drunken,

The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour of which he is not aware,

And will punish him [ cut him up by scourging] and put him with the pretenders (hypocrites); there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.

Saturday, 16 October 2010

Jesus said, Son of Man will come at the time that you are not unexpected.

As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.

For just as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, [men] marrying and [women] being given in marriage, until the [very] day when Noah went into the ark,

And they did not know or understand until the flood came and swept them all away--so will be the coming of the Son of Man.

At that time two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one will be left.

Two women will be grinding at the hand mill; one will be taken and one will be left.

Watch therefore [ give strict attention, be cautious and active], for you do not know in what kind of a day [ whether a near or remote one] your Lord is coming.

But understand this: had the householder known in what [part of the night, whether in a night or a morning] watch the thief was coming, he would have watched and would not have allowed his house to be undermined and broken into.

You also must be ready therefore, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him.

Thursday, 14 October 2010

Jesus said, Sky and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.

Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not shed its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn and beat their breasts and lament in anguish, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory [in brilliancy and splendor].

And He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect (His chosen ones) from the four winds, [even] from one end of the universe to the other.

From the fig tree learn this lesson: as soon as its young shoots become soft and tender and it puts out its leaves, you know of a surety that summer is near.

So also when you see these signs, all taken together, coming to pass, you may know of a surety that He is near, at the very doors.

Truly I tell you, this generation ( the whole multitude of people living at the same time, in a definite, given period) will not pass away till all these things taken together take place.

Sky and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.

But of that [exact] day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

Wednesday, 13 October 2010

Jesus said, If anyone says to you then, Behold, here is the Christ (the Messiah)! or, There He is!--do not believe it.

So when you see the appalling sacrilege [the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate], spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place--let the reader take notice and ponder and consider and heed [this]--

Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains;

Let him who is on the housetop not come down and go into the house to take anything;

And let him who is in the field not turn back to get his overcoat.

And alas for the women who are pregnant and for those who have nursing babies in those days!

Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath.

For then there will be great tribulation (affliction, distress, and oppression) such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now--no, and never will be [again].

And if those days had not been shortened, no human being would endure and survive, but for the sake of the elect (God's chosen ones) those days will be shortened.

If anyone says to you then, Behold, here is the Christ (the Messiah)! or, There He is!--do not believe it.

For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect (God's chosen ones).

See, I have warned you beforehand.

So if they say to you, Behold, He is in the wilderness (desert)--do not go out there; if they tell you, Behold, He is in the secret places or inner rooms--do not believe it.

For just as the lightning flashes from the east and shines and is seen as far as the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.

Wherever there is a fallen body (a corpse), there the vultures (or eagles) will flock together.

Monday, 11 October 2010

Jesus said, those who believe to the end shall be saved.

JESUS DEPARTED from the temple area and was going on His way when His disciples came up to Him to call His attention to the buildings of the temple and point them out to Him.

But He answered them, Do you see all these? Truly I tell you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.

While He was seated on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately and said, Tell us, when will this take place, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end (the completion, the consummation) of the age?

Jesus answered them, Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error].

For many will come in (on the strength of) My name [ appropriating the name which belongs to Me], saying, I am the Christ (the Messiah), and they will lead many astray.

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened or troubled, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in place after place;

All this is but the beginning [the early pains] of the birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish].

Then they will hand you over to suffer affliction and tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake.

And then many will be offended and repelled and will begin to distrust and desert [Him Whom they ought to trust and obey] and will stumble and fall away and betray one another and pursue one another with hatred.

And many false prophets will rise up and deceive and lead many into error.

And the love of the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity,

But he who endures to the end will be saved.

And this good news of the kingdom (the Gospel) will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then will come the end.

Sunday, 10 October 2010

Jesus condemned the scribes and Pharisees

THEN JESUS said to the multitudes and to His disciples,

The scribes and Pharisees sit on Moses' seat [of authority].

So observe and practice all they tell you; but do not do what they do, for they preach, but do not practice.

They tie up heavy loads, hard to bear, and place them on men's shoulders, but they themselves will not lift a finger to help bear them.

They do all their works to be seen of men; for they make wide their phylacteries ( small cases enclosing certain Scripture passages, worn during prayer on the left arm and forehead) and make long their fringes [worn by all male Israelites, according to the command].

And they take pleasure in and [thus] love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues,

And to be greeted with honor in the marketplaces and to have people call them rabbi.

But you are not to be called rabbi (teacher), for you have one Teacher and you are all brothers.

And do not call anyone [in the church] on earth father, for you have one Father, Who is in heaven.

And you must not be called masters (leaders), for you have one Master (Leader), the Christ.

He who is greatest among you shall be your servant.

Whoever exalts himself [ with haughtiness and empty pride] shall be humbled (brought low), and whoever humbles himself [whoever has a modest opinion of himself and behaves accordingly] shall be raised to honor.

But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces; for you neither enter yourselves, nor do you allow those who are about to go in to do so.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you swallow up widows' houses and for a pretense to cover it up make long prayers; therefore you will receive the greater condemnation and the heavier sentence.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you travel over sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes one [a proselyte], you make him doubly as much a child of hell (Gehenna) as you are.

Woe to you, blind guides, who say, If anyone swears by the sanctuary of the temple, it is nothing; but if anyone swears by the gold of the sanctuary, he is a debtor [bound by his oath].

You blind fools! For which is greater: the gold, or the sanctuary of the temple that has made the gold sacred?

You say too, Whoever swears by the altar is not duty bound; but whoever swears by the offering on the altar, his oath is binding.

You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar which makes the gift sacred?

So whoever swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it.

And he who swears by the sanctuary of the temple swears by it and by Him Who dwells in it. [I Kings 8:13; Ps. 26:8.]

And whoever swears by heaven swears by the throne of God and by Him Who sits upon it.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you give a tenth of your mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected and omitted the weightier (more important) matters of the Law--right and justice and mercy and fidelity. These you ought [particularly] to have done, without neglecting the others.

You blind guides, filtering out a gnat and gulping down a camel!

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the plate, but within they are full of extortion (prey, spoil, plunder) and grasping self-indulgence.

You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and of the plate, so that the outside may be clean also.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you are like tombs that have been whitewashed, which look beautiful on the outside but inside are full of dead men's bones and everything impure.

Just so, you also outwardly seem to people to be just and upright but inside you are full of pretense and lawlessness and iniquity.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you build tombs for the prophets and decorate the monuments of the righteous,

Saying, If we had lived in the days of our forefathers, we would not have aided them in shedding the blood of the prophets.

Thus you are testifying against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets.

Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers' sins to the brim [so that nothing may be wanting to a full measure].

You serpents! You spawn of vipers! How can you escape the penalty to be suffered in hell (Gehenna)?

Because of this, take notice: I am sending you prophets and wise men (interpreters and teachers) and scribes (men learned in the Mosaic Law and the Prophets); some of them you will kill, even crucify, and some you will flog in your synagogues and pursue and persecute from town to town,

So that upon your heads may come all the blood of the righteous ( those who correspond to the divine standard of right) shed on earth, from the blood of the righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar [of burnt offering].

Truly I declare to you, all these [ evil, calamitous times] will come upon this generation. [II Chron. 36:15, 16.]

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, murdering the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a mother fowl gathers her brood under her wings, and you refused!

Behold, your house is forsaken and desolate (abandoned and left destitute of God's help). [I Kings 9:7; Jer. 22:5.]

For I declare to you, you will not see Me again until you say, Blessed (magnified in worship, adored, and exalted) is He Who comes in the name of the Lord!

Friday, 8 October 2010

The relationship between Jesus and David

While the Pharisees still gathered there, Jesus asked them

What do you think of the Christ? Whose Son is He? They said to Him, The Son of David.

He said to them, How is it then that David, under the influence of the [Holy] Spirit, calls Him Lord, saying,The Lord said to My Lord, Sit at My right hand until I put Your enemies under Your feet?

If then David thus calls Him Lord, how is He his Son?

No one can answer Jesus. And ever since that day, no one dared ask anything more to Him.

Thursday, 7 October 2010

Jesus answered, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind

When the Pharisees heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they come together.

One of them, a religious teacher, tried to trap Jesus with a question.

he said, "Which commandment in the law of most major religions?"

Jesus answered, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect).

This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment.

The second command is the same as the first it: Love your neighbor as you love yourself.

All religious laws given by Moses and the teachings of the prophets, based On these two commandments. "

Wednesday, 6 October 2010

They are asked jesus a question about the dead will not rise again

some Sadducees came to Jesus. They are asked jesus a question about the dead will not rise again.

Teacher, Moses said, 'If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up a family for his brother.

Now there were seven brothers among us; the first married and died, and, having no children, left his wife to his brother.

The second also died childless, and the third, down to the seventh.

Last of all, the woman died also.

Who among the seven brother who became her husband on the day of resurrection? Because they all had married her. "

Jesus replied, "You're wrong once, because you do not understand the Bible, nor the power of God.

For when the dead will rise again, they will not marry again, but they will live like angels in heaven.

But as to the resurrection of the dead--have you never read what was said to you by God,I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead but of the living!

And when the throng heard it, they were astonished and filled with [ glad] amazement at His teaching.

Tuesday, 5 October 2010

Jesus said to them: "Give to Caesar what you must give to Caesar and give to God what you must give to God."

Then Pharisees negotiate how they could trap Jesus with a question.

They sent their disciples together people Herodians asked jesus: "Teacher, we know that you are an honest and truly teach the way of Allah and do not care about anyone else.

Tell us your opinion: Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not? "

But Jesus knew their hearts were evil and said: "Hi, hypocrites! Why do you want to trap me?

show me the money that you use to pay taxes! "Then they gave him a silver coin.And Jesus said to them, Whose likeness and title are these?

They answered, "Caesar's." Then Jesus said to them: "Give to Caesar what you must give to Caesar and give to God what you must give to God."

When they heard this, they were surprised. So they left him.

Monday, 4 October 2010

Jesus said, many are called , but few are chosen.

AND AGAIN Jesus spoke to them in parables (comparisons, stories used to illustrate and explain), saying,

The kingdom of heaven is like a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son

And sent his servants to summon those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they refused to come.

Again he sent other servants, saying, Tell those who are invited, Behold, I have prepared my banquet; my bullocks and my fat calves are killed, and everything is prepared; come to the wedding feast.

But they were not concerned and paid no attention [they ignored and made light of the summons, treating it with contempt] and they went away--one to his farm, another to his business,

While the others seized his servants, treated them shamefully, and put them to death.

[Hearing this] the king was infuriated; and he sent his soldiers and put those murderers to death and burned their city.

Then he said to his servants, The wedding [feast] is prepared, but those invited were not worthy.

So go to the thoroughfares where they leave the city [where the main roads and those from the country end] and invite to the wedding feast as many as you find.

And those servants went out on the crossroads and got together as many as they found, both bad and good, so [the room in which] the wedding feast [was held] was filled with guests.

But when the king came in to view the guests, he looked intently at a man there who had on no wedding garment.

And he said, Friend, how did you come in here without putting on the [appropriate] wedding garment? And he was speechless ( muzzled, gagged).

Then the king said to the attendants, Tie him hand and foot, and throw him into the darkness outside; there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.

For many are called (invited and summoned), but few are chosen.

Sunday, 3 October 2010

Jesus said, for this reason the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce the fruits of it.

Listen to another parable: There was a master of a house who planted a vineyard and put a hedge around it and dug a wine vat in it and built a watchtower. Then he let it out [for rent] to tenants and went into another country.

When the fruit season drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants to get his [share of the] fruit.

But the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another.

Again he sent other servants, more than the first time, and they treated them the same way.

Finally he sent his own son to them, saying, They will respect and give heed to my son.

But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, This is the heir; come on, let us kill him and have his inheritance.

And they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.

Now when the owner of the vineyard comes back, what will he do to those tenants?

They said to Him, He will put those wretches to a miserable death and rent the vineyard to other tenants of such a character that they will give him the fruits promptly in their season.

Jesus asked them, Have you never read in the Scriptures: The very Stone which the builders rejected and threw away has become the Cornerstone; this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?

I tell you, for this reason the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce the fruits of it.

And whoever falls on this Stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom It falls will be crushed to powder [and It will winnow him, scattering him like dust].

And when the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parables (comparisons, stories used to illustrate and explain), they perceived that He was talking about them.

And although they were trying to arrest Him, they feared the throngs because they regarded Him as a prophet.
