Luke xx. 1.

And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought Jerusalem. against any; that your Father also which is in heaven, may forgive your trespasses.

But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven, forgive your trespasses.

MATT. XXI. part of ver. 21.

21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you-if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea

SECTION XIII.

Christ answers the Chief Priests, who inquire concerning
the Authority by which he acted-Parables of the Vine-
yard and Marriage Feast.

to the end, and xii. 1-12. LUKE XX. 1-19.

And it came to pass, that on one of those days,
Mark xi. 27. they come again to Jerusalem:

Mat.xxi. 23.

And when he was come into the temple,

Luke xx. 1. as he taught the people in the temple, and preached the
Gospel, the Chief Priests and the Scribes,

Mat.xxi.23. and the elders of the people came unto him, as he was
teaching,

Mark xi. 27. and as he was walking in the temple,

Luke xx. 2.

And spake unto him, saying, Tell us by what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?

Mark xi. 28. to do these things?

29. And Jesus answered, and said unto them,

Mat. xxi.24. I also will ask you one thing, which if you tell me, I in likewise will tell you by what authority I do these things. The baptism of John, whence was it?

25.

Mark xi.30. was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.

31.

And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say,

Mat. xxi.25. unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?

26.

But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people;
Luke xx. 6. all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that
John was a prophet.

Mark xi. 32. they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he
was a prophet indeed.

33.

And they answered, and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. Luke xx. 7. whence it was.

Mark xi. 33. And Jesus answering, saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.

Mat. xxi.28.

29.

But what think you? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to-day in my vineyard.

He answered, and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.

Mat. xxi.30.

Luke xx. 9.

Mat. xxi.33.

And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he Jerusalem. answered, and said, I go, Sir; and went not.

Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, that the Publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.

For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not; but the Publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterwards that ye might believe him.

Then began he to speak to the people this parable; Hear another parable: There was a certain householder which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, Mark xii. 1. and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the

wine-fat,

Mat. xxi.23. and digged a wine-press in it, and built a tower, and let
it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
And

10. And at the season

Mat. xxi.34, when the time of the fruit drew near,

Lu. xx. 10. he sent a servant to the husbandmen,

Mark xii. 2. that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.

but the husbandmen

caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.

And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones,

and they beat him also,

Mark xii. 4. and wounded him in the head,

Lu. xx. 11. and intreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.

And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out.

And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.

Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved Son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.

Having yet therefore one Son, his well-beloved, he sent him also last

Mat. xxi.37, last of all

Mark xii. 6. unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
Mat.xxi.38. But when the husbandmen saw the son,

Lu. xx. 14. they reasoned among themselves,

Mat. xxi.38, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.

39.

And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

Mat. xxi.40.

When therefore the lord of the vineyard cometh, what Jerusalem. will he do unto those husbandmen?

41. They say unto him,

Mark xii. 9. he will come

Mat. xxi.41. He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

42.

43.

Jesus saith unto them,

Therefore I say unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

Lu. xx. 16. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.

17. And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that
is written?

Mat.xxi.42. Did ye never read in the Scriptures, The stone which the
builders rejected, the same is become the head of the cor-
ner 10: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our
eyes.

And whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

And when the Chief Priests

Lu. xx. 19. and the Scribes

Mat. xxi.45. and Pharisees had heard his parables, they sought to lay hands on him the same hour, for they perceived that he spake of them.

Lu. xx. 19. had spoken this parable against them.

Mat. xxi.46.

But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet. Mark xii.12. and they left him, and went their way.

And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,

The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.

Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner : my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready; come unto the marriage.

But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, and another to his merchandize :

And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them
spitefully, and slew them.

7. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and
he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers,
and burned up their city.

10 To prove that the Jews refer this passage to the Messiah,

Zachar. iv. 13.-Schoetgen Hor. Heb. vol. i. p. 174.

Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, Jerusalem. but they which were bidden were not worthy.

Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye
shall find, bid to the marriage.

10. So those servants went out into the highways, and ga-
thered together all as many as they found, both bad and
good and the wedding was furnished with guests.

14.

And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

For many are called, but few are chosen.

thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?

24 And Jesus answered and said unto them

25-from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with them-

27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And
he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do
these things.

34 he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.

36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

37 But he sent unto them his son, saying, They will rever

27-there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and

28 And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these
things? and who gave thee this authority-

Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they
might entangle him in his talk.

And they watched him, and sent forth

Mark xii.13. unto him certain of
