Yeshua continued, “What do you think about this? A person had two children, and he went to the first and said, ‘My child, go and work today in my vineyard!’
The Source with Hebraic adaptation by Rabbi Lutton
Yeshua began speaking to them in examples: “A person planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, dug a pit for the wine vat and built a tower. Then he leased it to some farmers and went to a far away
country. At vintage time he sent a slave servant to the farmers to collect some of the vineyard produce from the farmers.Mark 12:1-12
The farmers grabbed him, tanned his hide and sent him packing, empty handed. So the vineyard owner sent another slave servant. They banged him on the head, insulted him and sent him packing.
“Again he sent another slave servant, and they killed him. He sent many more slave servants, and they killed some and beat the others up.
But the farmers said to each other, ‘This is the heir – come on, let’s kill him, and then we’ll get the inheritance!’ So they grabbed him, murdered him and hurled him out of the vineyard. So what will the vineyard owner do? He will have the farmers put to death, and give the vineyard to other people.
Haven’t you read the Scripture, ‘The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This was done by the Lord, and it is wonderful to see!’”
Yeshua went on to tell the people this example: “There was a certain person who planted a vineyard, then rented it out to some farmers and went away from home for a long time. At harvest time the owner sent a slave servant to the farmers to collect some of the vineyard’s produce.Luke 20:9-16
But the farmers beat him up and sent him away empty-handed. So he sent another servant, but they also beat him up and insulted him and sent him away empty-handed. Then he sent a third servant, but they injured him and threw him out. Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What am I going to do? I’ll send my own dear son, perhaps they will respect him!’
“But when the farmers saw him, they discussed the matter. They said, ‘This is the heir – let’s kill him, then the inheritance will be ours!’
When the people heard this, they exclaimed, “Let’s hope this never happens!”
has become the cornerstone?’Luke 20:16-18
“Everyone who falls on that stone will be smashed to pieces, and anyone on whom it falls will be crushed to powder!”
“Listen to another example. There was a certain person, a landowner, who planted a vineyard and put a hedge around it, dug a wine press in it and built a tower. He leased it out to farmers and set out on a journey. When vintage time got close, he sent his slave servants to the farmers to collect its fruit. The farmers grabbed his slave servants, beat one, killed one and stoned another.Matthew 21:33-41
“Next he sent other slave servants, more than the first, and they did the same to them. Last of all he sent his son to them. ‘They will respect my son!’ he said to himself.
Yeshua said to them, “Haven’t you ever read in the Scriptures, ‘The stone which the builders rejected, Has become the cornerstone; This was done by the Lord
And it is wonderful to see!”
Upon hearing his examples, the chief priests and Pharisees realized he was talking about them. They fully intended to arrest him, but they weren’t able to carry it out. They were afraid of the crowds’ reaction, as the crowds took him for a prophet.Matthew 21:45-46
Yeshua responded by speaking again in examples. “This is a story about Heaven’s Realm. It is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son,” he explained. “He sent his slave servants to call the invited guests to the wedding but they didn’t want to come.Matthew 22:1-6
Next he sent other slave servants with the instructions, ‘Tell the invited guests, “I have prepared the feast – all the meat is ready! Everything is ready! Come to the wedding.”’
“But they couldn’t care less and they went away. One went to his own farm, another went to his business, but the rest of them grabbed his slave servants and beat them up badly, killing them.
“The king was furious and sent his armies. They destroyed those murderers and burned down their city. Then the king said to his slave servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but the invited guests weren’t worthy of the honor. So go out to the highways and invite anyone you find to the wedding.’Matthew 22:7-14
“The slaves went out to the highways and collected everyone they found, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests reclining at the table. But when the king came in to see the guests reclining at the table, he came across a person who wasn’t wearing wedding clothes.
“‘Friend, why did you come without wedding clothes?’ the king asked, but the person was muzzled and didn’t say a word.
They sent some Pharisees and some friends and supporters of Herod Antipas to Yeshua, to bait a hook for him on what he said. When they arrived, they said to him, “Teacher, we know that you’re sincere and don’t concern yourself about anyone’s opinion as you don’t go by outward appearances, but teach the way of God with all sincerity. So, is it legal to pay the Roman poll-tax to Caesar or not? Are we to pay, or not to pay?”Mark 12:13-17
But Yeshua, knowing they were overly critical, hair-splitting, pedantic religious types, asked, “Why are you putting me to the test? Bring a Roman coin for me to look at!”
“Give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar,” Yeshua remarked, “and give back to God what belongs to God.” And they were completely shocked by him.
The Bible scholars and the chief priests searched for a way to arrest him at this very moment, because they knew that he had addressed this example to them. However, they were afraid of the crowd’s reaction as the crowd favored Yeshua so highly.Luke 20:19-22
So they kept a close watch on Yeshua, and sent spies who pretended to be for real. They were trying to catch Yeshua out on something he said so they could hand him over to the Governor’s jurisdiction and authority.
So the spies put a question to him, “Teacher, we know what you speak and teach is correct, and that you don’t take people on face value, but teach the truth about God’s way. So is it legal to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?”
Yeshua saw through their cunning and said, “Show me a silver coin. Whose face and inscription are on it?”
Then the Pharisees plotted to trick Yeshua by catching him out on something he said. They sent their disciples, along with Herod’s followers and supporters to ask, “Teacher, we know that you’re sincere and teach God’s way accurately, and that you don’t care about anyone’s opinion, and you don’t play favorites. So tell us, what’s your opinion? Is it legal to pay the Roman poll-tax to Caesar, or not?”Matthew 22:15-20
Yeshua knew their evil. He said, “Why are you hassling me, you overly critical, hair splitting, pedantic religious types? Show me the tax money!”
“Give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar,” Yeshua said, “and give back to God what belongs to God!”
The Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, went to Yeshua. They posed the question, “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if someone’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, that brother must marry the widow and have children for his brother. Now say there are seven brothers.Mark 12:18-27
The first gets married and dies with no children. The second one marries the widow, but he dies too without having any children. The same happens with the third. In fact none of the seven had any children. Finally the woman dies too. At the resurrection, whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”
Yeshua said to them, “Aren’t you mistaken on account of the fact that you don’t know the Scriptures or God’s power? When the dead bodies rise they don’t marry, but they are like the Messengers in heaven. Now about the dead bodies being raised – haven’t you read the passage about the burning bush in the Book of Moses, where God said, ‘I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead but the living! You are badly mistaken!”
Some of the Sadducees who say there is no resurrection came up to Yeshua and put the following question to him. “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and have children for his brother. Now, let’s say there were seven brothers. The first one married a woman and died childless.Luke 20:27-33
The second and then the third married her. The seven of them all died in the same way, leaving no children. Finally, the woman died too. Now then, at the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven of them were all married to her?”
They are God’s people, since they are associated with the resurrection. But in the account of the bush, Moses clearly showed that the dead do rise, because he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.’ He is not the God of dead bodies, but the living. Everyone is alive as far as God is concerned.”
Some of the Bible scholars said, “Well said, teacher!” No one else dared to ask him any more questions.Luke 20:39-40
On the same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, went to speak to Yeshua. This is the question they put,
“Let’s say there were seven brothers. The first brother married and died. As he’s childless, he leaves his wife to his brother. The second one dies in the same way, so does the third. This keeps happening right up to the seventh brother. In the end the woman dies too.
Yeshua answered, “You are wandering off the right track because you don’t know the Scriptures or the power of God! In the resurrection they don’t marry or get married, but they’re like Messengers in heaven.Matthew 22:23-28
“But about the resurrection of the dead, haven’t you read what was spoken to you by God, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead, he is the God of the living!”
One of the Bible scholars who had come and been listening to their dispute, saw that Yeshua had answered them well. “Which is the most important of all the commandments?” he asked.
This is the second most important: ‘You will love your neighbor like you love yourself.’ There are no commandments more important than these.”
To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor the way you love yourself is far more far-reaching than all the burnt offerings and sacrifices.”
But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they held a meeting. One of them, a lawyer, asked a question, trying to trap him: “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the Law?”Matthew 22:34-40
He answered, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your understanding.’ This is the great first commandment. The second most important is like it: ‘You must love your neighbor in the same way you love yourself.’ The Law and the Prophets depend on these two commandments!”
While Yeshua was teaching in the temple, he asked, “Why do the Bible scholars say that the Anointed One is David’s descendant? David himself, speaking by the Holy Spirit, said, ‘The Lord said to my master, ‘Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.”’ “David himself calls him ‘master’, so how then can he be David’s son?”Mark 12:35-37
Then Yeshua asked them, “Why do they say that the Anointed One is David’s descendant?” “David himself says in the Book of Psalms, ‘The Lord said to my master, sit here in the place of honor at my right side, until I put your enemies under your feet.’
While the Pharisees were assembled, Yeshua asked them, “What do you think about the Anointed One? Whose descendant is he?”
He said by the leading of the Spirit, ‘The Lord said to my master, Sit here in the place of honor at my right side, until I put your enemies under your feet.”
