Jesus' Final Public Interaction
In and Around Jerusalem

Arrival at Bethany - John 11:55-12:1

Mary Anoints Jesus

MAT 26:6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, at the home of Simon the leper,
MAT 26:7 a woman came to Him with an alabaster vial of very costly perfume, and she poured it upon His head as He reclined at the table.
MAT 26:8 But the disciples were indignant when they saw this, and said, "Why this waste?
MAT 26:9 "For this perfume might have been sold for a high price and the money given to the poor."
MAT 26:10 But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, "Why do you bother the woman? For she has done a good deed to Me.
MAT 26:11 "For the poor you have with you always; but you do not always have Me.
MAT 26:12 "For when she poured this perfume upon My body, she did it to prepare Me for burial.
MAT 26:13 "Truly I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done shall also be spoken of in memory of her."
MAR 14:3 And while He was in Bethany at the home of Simon the leper, and reclining at the table, there came a woman with an alabaster vial of very costly perfume of pure nard; and she broke the vial and poured it over His head.
MAR 14:4 But some were indignantly remarking to one another, "Why has this perfume been wasted?
MAR 14:5 "For this perfume might have been sold for over three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor." And they were scolding her.
MAR 14:6 But Jesus said, "Let her alone; why do you bother her? She has done a good deed to Me.
MAR 14:7 "For the poor you always have with you, and whenever you wish, you can do them good; but you do not always have Me.
MAR 14:8 "She has done what she could; she has anointed My body beforehand for the burial.
MAR 14:9 "And truly I say to you, wherever the gospel is preached in the whole world, that also which this woman has done shall be spoken of in memory of her."
JOH 12:2 So they made Him a supper there, and Martha was serving; but Lazarus was one of those reclining at the table with Him.
JOH 12:3 Mary therefore took a pound of very costly perfume of pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
JOH 12:4 But Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, who was intending to betray Him, said,
JOH 12:5 "Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii, and given to poor people?"
JOH 12:6 Now he said this, not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief, and as he had the money box, he used to pilfer what was put into it.
JOH 12:7 Jesus therefore said, "Let her alone, in order that she may keep it for the day of My burial.

 

 

JOH 12:8 "For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have Me."
JOH 12:9 The great multitude therefore of the Jews learned that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He raised from the dead.
JOH 12:10 But the chief priests took counsel that they might put Lazarus to death also;
JOH 12:11 because on account of him many of the Jews were going away, and were believing in Jesus.

Triumphal Entry

MAT 21:1 And when they had approached Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples,

MAT 21:2 saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her; untie them, and bring them to Me.

MAT 21:3 "And if anyone says something to you, you shall say, 'The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them."
MAT 21:4 Now this took place that what was spoken through the prophet might be fulfilled, saying,
MAT 21:5 "Say to the daughter of Zion, 'Behold your King is coming to you, Gentle, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.'"
MAT 21:6 And the disciples went and did just as Jesus had directed them,
MAT 21:7 and brought the donkey and the colt, and laid on them their garments, on which He sat.
MAT 21:8 And most of the multitude spread their garments in the road, and others were cutting branches from the trees, and spreading them in the road.
MAT 21:9 And the multitudes going before Him, and those who followed after were crying out, saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David; Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest!"

MAR 11:1 And as they approached Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples,
MAR 11:2 and said to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it and bring it here.
MAR 11:3 "And if anyone says to you, 'Why are you doing this?' you say, 'The Lord has need of it'; and immediately he will send it back here."
MAR 11:4 And they went away and found a colt tied at the door outside in the street; and they untied it.
MAR 11:5 And some of the bystanders were saying to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?"
MAR 11:6 And they spoke to them just as Jesus had told them, and they gave them permission.
MAR 11:7 And they brought the colt to Jesus and put their garments on it; and He sat upon it.


MAR 11:8 And many spread their garments in the road, and others spread leafy branches which they had cut from the fields.
MAR 11:9 And those who went before, and those who followed after, were crying out, "Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord;
MAR 11:10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David; Hosanna in the highest! "

LUK 19:29 And it came about that when He approached Bethphage and Bethany, near the mount that is called Olivet, He sent two of the disciples,

LUK 19:30 saying, "Go into the village opposite you, in which as you enter you will find a colt tied, on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it, and bring it here.

LUK 19:31 "And if anyone asks you, 'Why are you untying it?' thus shall you speak, 'The Lord has need of it.'"
LUK 19:32 And those who were sent went away and found it just as He had told them.
LUK 19:33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, "Why are you untying the colt?"
LUK 19:34 And they said, "The Lord has need of it."
LUK 19:35 And they brought it to Jesus, and they threw their garments on the colt, and put Jesus on it.

 

 

 

LUK 19:36 And as He was going, they were spreading their garments in the road.
LUK 19:37 And as He was now approaching, near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the miracles which they had seen,
LUK 19:38 saying, "Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord; Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


LUK 19:39 And some of the Pharisees in the multitude said to Him, "Teacher, rebuke Your disciples."
LUK 19:40 And He answered and said, "I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!"
LUK 19:41 And when He approached, He saw the city and wept over it,
LUK 19:42 saying, "If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes.
LUK 19:43 "For the days shall come upon you when your enemies will throw up a bank before you, and surround you, and hem you in on every side,
LUK 19:44 and will level you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation. "

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JOH 12:12 On the next day the great multitude who had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
JOH 12:13 took the branches of the palm trees, and went out to meet Him, and began to cry out, "Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel."
JOH 12:14 And Jesus, finding a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written,
JOH 12:15 "Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming, seated on a donkey's colt."

JOH 12:16 These things His disciples did not understand at the first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of Him, and that they had done these things to Him.
JOH 12:17 And so the multitude who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb, and raised him from the dead, were bearing Him witness.
JOH 12:18 For this cause also the multitude went and met Him, because they heard that He had performed this sign.
JOH 12:19 The Pharisees therefore said to one another, "You see that you are not doing any good; look, the world has gone after Him."

MAT 21:10 And when He had entered Jerusalem, all the city was stirred, saying, "Who is this?"
MAT 21:11 And the multitudes were saying, "This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee."

MAT 21:14 And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
MAT 21:15 But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that He had done, and the children who were crying out in the temple and saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David," they became indignant,
MAT 21:16 and said to Him, "Do You hear what these are saying?" And Jesus said to them, "Yes; have you never read, 'Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babes Thou hast prepared praise for Thyself'?"
MAT 21:17 And He left them and went out of the city to Bethany, and lodged there.
MAR 11:11 And He entered Jerusalem

 

 


and came into the temple;

 

 

 

 

 

and after looking all around, He departed for Bethany with the twelve, since it was already late.

The Fig Tree Cursed

MAT 21:18 Now in the morning, when He returned to the city, He became hungry.
MAT 21:19a And seeing a lone fig tree by the road, He came to it, and found nothing on it except leaves only; and He said to it, "No longer shall there ever be any fruit from you."
MAR 11:12 And on the next day, when they had departed from Bethany, He became hungry.
MAR 11:13 And seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to see if perhaps He would find anything on it; and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs.
MAR 11:14 And He answered and said to it, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again!" And His disciples were listening.

Second Cleansing of the Temple

MAT 21:12 And Jesus entered the temple and cast out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who were selling doves.

 

MAT 21:13 And He said to them, "It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer'; but you are making it a robbers' den."

MAR 11:15 And they came to Jerusalem. And He entered the temple and began to cast out those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who were selling doves;
MAR 11:16 and He would not permit anyone to carry goods through the temple.
MAR 11:17 And He began to teach and say to them, "Is it not written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations'? But you have made it a robbers' den."
MAR 11:18 And the chief priests and the scribes heard this, and began seeking how to destroy Him; for they were afraid of Him, for all the multitude was astonished at His teaching.
LUK 19:45 And He entered the temple and began to cast out those who were selling,

 

 

 


LUK 19:46 saying to them, "It is written, 'And My house shall be a house of prayer,' but you have made it a robbers' den."
LUK 19:47 And He was teaching daily in the temple; but the chief priests and the scribes and the leading men among the people were trying to destroy Him,
LUK 19:48 and they could not find anything that they might do, for all the people were hanging upon His words.

Greeks ask to see Jesus - John 12:20-36a
Response to unbelieving multitude - John 12:36b-50

Lesson of the Fig Tree

 

MAT 21:19b And at once the fig tree withered.

MAT 21:20 And seeing this, the disciples marveled, saying, "How did the fig tree wither at once?"
MAT 21:21 And Jesus answered and said to them, "Truly I say to you, if you have faith, and do not doubt, you shall not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it shall happen.
MAT 21:22 "And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive."

MAR 11:19 And whenever evening came, they would go out of the city.
MAR 11:20 And as they were passing by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots up.
MAR 11:21 And being reminded, Peter said to Him, "Rabbi, behold, the fig tree which You cursed has withered."
MAR 11:22 And Jesus answered saying to them, "Have faith in God.
MAR 11:23 "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it shall be granted him.
MAR 11:24 "Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they shall be granted you.
MAR 11:25 "And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your transgressions.
MAR 11:26 [ "But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions."]

Jewish Leaders Question Authority of Jesus


MAT 21:23 And when He had come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to Him as He was teaching, and said, "By what authority are You doing these things, and who gave You this authority?"
MAT 21:24 And Jesus answered and said to them, "I will ask you one thing too, which if you tell Me, I will also tell you by what authority I do these things.
MAT 21:25 "The baptism of John was from what source, from heaven or from men?" And they began reasoning among themselves, saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' He will say to us, 'Then why did you not believe him?'
MAT 21:26 "But if we say, 'From men,' we fear the multitude; for they all hold John to be a prophet."

MAT 21:27 And answering Jesus, they said, "We do not know." He also said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.

 

MAR 11:27 And they came again to Jerusalem. And as He was walking in the temple, the chief priests, and scribes, and elders came to Him,
MAR 11:28 and began saying to Him, "By what authority are You doing these things, or who gave You this authority to do these things?"
MAR 11:29 And Jesus said to them, "I will ask you one question, and you answer Me, and then I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
MAR 11:30 "Was the baptism of John from heaven, or from men? Answer Me."
MAR 11:31 And they began reasoning among themselves, saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' He will say, 'Then why did you not believe him?'
MAR 11:32 "But shall we say, 'From men'?"-- they were afraid of the multitude, for all considered John to have been a prophet indeed.
MAR 11:33 And answering Jesus, they said, "We do not know." And Jesus said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things."

LUK 20:1 And it came about on one of the days while He was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, that the chief priests and the scribes with the elders confronted Him,
LUK 20:2 and they spoke, saying to Him, "Tell us by what authority You are doing these things, or who is the one who gave You this authority?"
LUK 20:3 And He answered and said to them, "I shall also ask you a question, and you tell Me:

LUK 20:4 "Was the baptism of John from heaven or from men?"
LUK 20:5 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' He will say, 'Why did you not believe him?'
LUK 20:6 "But if we say, 'From men,' all the people will stone us to death, for they are convinced that John was a prophet."
LUK 20:7 And they answered that they did not know where it came from.
LUK 20:8 And Jesus said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things."

First parable about responsibility - Matt. 21:28-32

Second Parable About Responsibility

MAT 21:33 "Listen to another parable. There was a landowner who planted a vineyard and put a wall around it and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and rented it out to vine-growers, and went on a journey.
MAT 21:34 "And when the harvest time approached, he sent his slaves to the vine-growers to receive his produce.
MAT 21:35 "And the vine-growers took his slaves and beat one, and killed another, and stoned a third.

 

MAT 21:36 "Again he sent another group of slaves larger than the first; and they did the same thing to them.
MAT 21:37 "But afterward he sent his son to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.'
MAT 21:38 "But when the vine-growers saw the son, they said among themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and seize his inheritance.'
MAT 21:39 "And they took him, and threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him.
MAT 21:40 "Therefore when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vine-growers?"
MAT 21:41 They said to Him, "He will bring those wretches to a wretched end, and will rent out the vineyard to other vine-growers, who will pay him the proceeds at the proper seasons."
MAT 21:42 Jesus said to them, "Did you never read in the Scriptures, 'The stone which the builders rejected, This became the chief corner stone; This came about from the Lord, And it is marvelous in our eyes'?
MAT 21:43 "Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you, and be given to a nation producing the fruit of it.
MAT 21:44 "And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust."
MAT 21:45 And when the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parables, they understood that He was speaking about them.
MAT 21:46 And when they sought to seize Him, they feared the multitudes, because they held Him to be a prophet.

MAR 12:1 And He began to speak to them in parables: "A man planted a vineyard, and put a wall around it, and dug a vat under the wine press, and built a tower, and rented it out to vine-growers and went on a journey.

MAR 12:2 "And at the harvest time he sent a slave to the vine-growers, in order to receive some of the produce of the vineyard from the vine-growers.
MAR 12:3 "And they took him, and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed.
MAR 12:4 "And again he sent them another slave, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully.
MAR 12:5 "And he sent another, and that one they killed; and so with many others, beating some, and killing others.
MAR 12:6 "He had one more to send, a beloved son; he sent him last of all to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.'
MAR 12:7 "But those vine-growers said to one another, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours!'
MAR 12:8 "And they took him, and killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard.

MAR 12:9 "What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the vine-growers, and will give the vineyard to others.

 


MAR 12:10 "Have you not even read this Scripture: 'The stone which the builders rejected, This became the chief corner stone;
MAR 12:11 This came about from the Lord, And it is marvelous in our eyes'? "

 

 

 

 


MAR 12:12 And they were seeking to seize Him; and yet they feared the multitude; for they understood that He spoke the parable against them. And so they left Him, and went away.

LUK 20:9 And He began to tell the people this parable: "A man planted a vineyard and rented it out to vine-growers, and went on a journey for a long time.


LUK 20:10 "And at the harvest time he sent a slave to the vine-growers, in order that they might give him some of the produce of the vineyard; but the vine-growers beat him and sent him away empty-handed.

LUK 20:11 "And he proceeded to send another slave; and they beat him also and treated him shamefully, and sent him away empty-handed.
LUK 20:12 "And he proceeded to send a third; and this one also they wounded and cast out.
LUK 20:13 "And the owner of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; perhaps they will respect him.'
LUK 20:14 "But when the vine-growers saw him, they reasoned with one another, saying, 'This is the heir; let us kill him that the inheritance may be ours.'
LUK 20:15 "And they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.

What, therefore, will the owner of the vineyard do to them?
LUK 20:16 "He will come and destroy these vine-growers and will give the vineyard to others." And when they heard it, they said, "May it never be!"


LUK 20:17 But He looked at them and said, "What then is this that is written, 'The stone which the builders rejected, This became the chief corner stone'?
LUK 20:18 "Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust."

 

 

 


LUK 20:19 And the scribes and the chief priests tried to lay hands on Him that very hour, and they feared the people; for they understood that He spoke this parable against them.

Third parable about duty - Matthew 22:1-14

Question from the Pharisees and Herodians

MAT 22:15 Then the Pharisees went and counseled together how they might trap Him in what He said.
MAT 22:16 And they sent their disciples to Him, along with the Herodians, saying,


"Teacher, we know that You are truthful and teach the way of God in truth, and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any.
MAT 22:17 "Tell us therefore, what do You think? Is it lawful to give a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?"
MAT 22:18 But Jesus perceived their malice, and said, "Why are you testing Me, you hypocrites?
MAT 22:19 "Show Me the coin used for the poll-tax." And they brought Him a denarius.
MAT 22:20 And He said to them, "Whose likeness and inscription is this?"
MAT 22:21 They said to Him, "Caesar's." Then He said to them, "Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's; and to God the things that are God's."
MAT 22:22 And hearing this, they marveled, and leaving Him, they went away.

MAR 12:13 And they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Him, in order to trap Him in a statement.

 

MAR 12:14 And they came and said to Him, "Teacher, we know that You are truthful, and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth.


Is it lawful to pay a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?
MAR 12:15 "Shall we pay, or shall we not pay?" But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, "Why are you testing Me? Bring Me a denarius to look at."

MAR 12:16 And they brought one. And He said to them, "Whose likeness and inscription is this?" And they said to Him, "Caesar's."
MAR 12:17 And Jesus said to them, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they were amazed at Him.

LUK 20:20 And they watched Him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, in order that they might catch Him in some statement, so as to deliver Him up to the rule and the authority of the governor.
LUK 20:21 And they questioned Him, saying, "Teacher, we know that You speak and teach correctly, and You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth.


LUK 20:22 "Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?"
LUK 20:23 But He detected their trickery and said to them,

LUK 20:24 "Show Me a denarius.

 

Whose likeness and inscription does it have?" And they said, "Caesar's."
LUK 20:25 And He said to them, "Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."
LUK 20:26 And they were unable to catch Him in a saying in the presence of the people; and marveling at His answer, they became silent.

Question from the Sadducees

MAT 22:23 On that day some Sadducees (who say there is no resurrection) came to Him and questioned Him,

MAT 22:24 saying, "Teacher, Moses said, 'If a man dies, having no children, his brother as next of kin shall marry his wife, and raise up an offspring to his brother.'
MAT 22:25 "Now there were seven brothers with us; and the first married and died, and having no offspring left his wife to his brother;
MAT 22:26 so also the second, and the third, down to the seventh.

MAT 22:27 "And last of all, the woman died.
MAT 22:28 "In the resurrection therefore whose wife of the seven shall she be? For they all had her."

MAT 22:29 But Jesus answered and said to them, "You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures, or the power of God.
MAT 22:30 "For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.

MAT 22:31 "But regarding the resurrection of the dead, have you not read that which was spoken to you by God, saying,
MAT 22:32 '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. "

MAT 22:33 And when the multitudes heard this, they were astonished at His teaching.

MAR 12:18 And some Sadducees (who say that there is no resurrection) came to Him, and began questioning Him, saying,

MAR 12:19 "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies, and leaves behind a wife, and leaves no child, his brother should take the wife, and raise up offspring to his brother.
MAR 12:20 "There were seven brothers; and the first took a wife, and died, leaving no offspring.
MAR 12:21 "And the second one took her, and died, leaving behind no offspring; and the third likewise;
MAR 12:22 and so all seven left no offspring. Last of all the woman died also.
MAR 12:23 "In the resurrection, when they rise again, which one's wife will she be? For all seven had her as wife."
MAR 12:24 Jesus said to them, "Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the Scriptures, or the power of God?
MAR 12:25 "For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.


MAR 12:26 "But regarding the fact that the dead rise again, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the burning bush, how God spoke to him, saying, 'I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'?
MAR 12:27 "He is not the God of the dead, but of the living; you are greatly mistaken."

LUK 20:27 Now there came to Him some of the Sadducees (who say that there is no resurrection),
LUK 20:28 and they questioned Him, saying, "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies, having a wife, and he is childless, his brother should take the wife and raise up offspring to his brother.
LUK 20:29 "Now there were seven brothers; and the first took a wife, and died childless;
LUK 20:30 and the second


LUK 20:31 and the third took her; and in the same way all seven died, leaving no children.
LUK 20:32 "Finally the woman died also.
LUK 20:33 "In the resurrection therefore, which one's wife will she be? For all seven had her as wife."

LUK 20:34 And Jesus said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage,
LUK 20:35 but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage;
LUK 20:36 for neither can they die anymore, for they are like angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.
LUK 20:37 "But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the passage about the burning bush, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

LUK 20:38 "Now He is not the God of the dead, but of the living; for all live to Him."
LUK 20:39 And some of the scribes answered and said, "Teacher, You have spoken well."
LUK 20:40 For they did not have courage to question Him any longer about anything.

Question from a Scribe

MAT 22:34 But when the Pharisees heard that He had put the Sadducees to silence, they gathered themselves together.
MAT 22:35 And one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him,
MAT 22:36 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?"
MAT 22:37 And He said to him, "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.'
MAT 22:38 "This is the great and foremost commandment.

MAT 22:39 "The second is like it, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'
MAT 22:40 "On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets."
 

MAR 12:28 And one of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, "What commandment is the foremost of all?"
MAR 12:29 Jesus answered, "The foremost is, 'Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord;
MAR 12:30 and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.'
MAR 12:31 "The second is this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."

MAR 12:32 And the scribe said to Him, "Right, Teacher, You have truly stated that He is One; and there is no one else besides Him;
MAR 12:33 and to love Him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as himself, is much more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices. "
MAR 12:34 And when Jesus saw that he had answered intelligently, He said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." And after that, no one would venture to ask Him any more questions.

The Christ's Relationship with David

MAT 22:41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question,
MAT 22:42 saying, "What do you think about the Christ, whose son is He?" They said to Him, "The son of David."
MAT 22:43 He said to them, "Then how does David in the Spirit call Him 'Lord,' saying,
MAT 22:44 'The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at My right hand, Until I put Thine enemies beneath Thy feet"'?

MAT 22:45 "If David then calls Him 'Lord,' how is He his son?"
MAT 22:46 And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor did anyone dare from that day on to ask Him another question.

MAR 12:35 And Jesus answering began to say, as He taught in the temple,

 


"How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David?
MAR 12:36 "David himself said in the Holy Spirit,
'The Lord said to my Lord," Sit at My right hand,

Until I put Thine enemies beneath Thy feet.' "
MAR 12:37 "David himself calls Him 'Lord'; and so in what sense is He his son?" And the great crowd enjoyed listening to Him.

LUK 20:41 And He said to them,

 

 


"How is it that they say the Christ is David's son?
LUK 20:42 "For David himself says in the book of Psalms, 'The Lord said to my Lord," Sit at My right hand,
LUK 20:43 Until I make Thine enemies a footstool for Thy feet. "'
LUK 20:44 "David therefore calls Him 'Lord,' and how is He his son?"

Beware

MAR 12:38 And in His teaching He was saying:
"Beware of the scribes who like to walk around in long robes, and like respectful greetings in the market places,
MAR 12:39 and chief seats in the synagogues, and places of honor at banquets,
MAR 12:40 who devour widows' houses, and for appearance's sake offer long prayers; these will receive greater condemnation. "
LUK 20:45 And while all the people were listening, He said to the disciples,
LUK 20:46 "Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love respectful greetings in the market places, and chief seats in the synagogues, and places of honor at banquets,
LUK 20:47 who devour widows' houses, and for appearance's sake offer long prayers; these will receive greater condemnation. "

Widow's Contribution

MAR 12:41 And He sat down opposite the treasury, and began observing how the multitude were putting money into the treasury; and many rich people were putting in large sums.
MAR 12:42 And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent.
MAR 12:43 And calling His disciples to Him, He said to them, "Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the contributors to the treasury;
MAR 12:44 for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on. "
LUK 21:1 And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury.

LUK 21:2 And He saw a certain poor widow putting in two small copper coins.

LUK 21:3 And He said, "Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all of them;

LUK 21:4 for they all out of their surplus put into the offering; but she out of her poverty put in all that she had to live on. "
