Jesus and the Pharisees - Mark 12

Mark 12:1 And he began to speak unto them by parables. A  certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about  it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower,  and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.

Mark 12:2 And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a  servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the  fruit of the vineyard.

Mark 12:3 And they caught him, and  beat him, and sent him away empty. 

Mark 12:4 And again he  sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones,  and wounded him in the head, and sent him away  shamefully handled. 

Mark 12:5 And again he sent another; and  him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing  some. 

Mark 12:6 Having yet therefore one son, his  wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They  will reverence my son. 

Mark 12:7 But those husbandmen said  among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him,  and the inheritance shall be ours. 

Mark 12:8 And they took him,  and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. 

Mark 12:9  What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will  come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the  vineyard unto others. 

Mark 12:10 And have ye not read this  scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become  the head of the corner: 

Mark 12:11 This was the Lord’s doing,  and it is marvellous in our eyes? 

Gospel of Mark

Mark 12:12 And they sought  to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that  he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him,  and went their way.  

Mark 12:13 And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees  and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words. 

Mark 12:14  And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we  know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou  regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of  God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?  

Mark 12:15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he,  knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye  me? bring me a penny, that I may see it. 

Mark 12:16 And they  brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image  and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s.  

Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to  Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things  that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.  

Mark 12:18 Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say  there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,  

Mark 12:19 Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man’s brother  die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no  children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up  seed unto his brother. 

Mark 12:20 Now there were seven  brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.   

Mark 12:21 And the second took her, and died, neither left he  any seed: and the third likewise. 

Mark 12:22 And the seven had  her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.  

Mark 12:23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise,  whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to  wife. 

Mark 12:24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye  not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures,  neither the power of God? 

Mark 12:25 For when they shall rise  from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in  marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven. 

Mark 12:26  And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in  the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him,  saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac,  and the God of Jacob? 

Mark 12:27 He is not the God of the  dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.  

Mark 12:28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard  them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had  answered them well, asked him, Which is the first  commandment of all? 

Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him,  The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The  Lord our God is one Lord: 

Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the  Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and  with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first  commandment. 

Mark 12:31 And the second is like, namely  this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none  other commandment greater than these. 

Mark 12:32 And the  scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth:  for there is one God; and there is none other but he: 

Mark 12:33  And to love him with all the heart, and with all the  understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the  strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more  than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. 

Mark 12:34 And  when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto  him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no  man after that durst ask him any question.  

Mark 12:35 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in  the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of  David? 

Mark 12:36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost,  The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I  make thine enemies thy footstool. 

Mark 12:37 David therefore  himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son?  And the common people heard him gladly.   

Mark 12:38 And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of  the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love  salutations in the 


Mark 12:39 And the chief seats  in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:  

Mark 12:40 Which devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence  make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.  

Mark 12:41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and  beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and  many that were rich cast in much. 

Mark 12:42 And there came  a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which  make a farthing. 

Mark 12:43 And he called unto him his  disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That  this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have  cast into the treasury: 

Mark 12:44 For all they did cast in of  their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she  had, even all her living.
