the kingdom of the heavens is like a 2man
, who is
a householder, who went out early in the 3morning
to hire 4workmen
for his 5avineyard
with the workmen for a 2denarius
a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
he went out about the 1third
hour and saw others standing 2idle
in the 3marketplace
to those he said, You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you. And they went.
again he went out about the 1sixth
and the 2ninth
hour and did likewise.
about the 1eleventh
hour he went out and found others standing, and said to them, Why have you been standing here all the day idle?
said to him, Because 1no
one has hired us. He said to them, You 2also
go into the vineyard.
fell, the master of the vineyard said to his steward, Call the workmen and pay them their wages, beginning from the 2last
ones to the first.
when those hired
about the eleventh hour came, they received each a denarius.
when the 1first
ones came, they supposed that they would receive more. And they themselves also received each a denarius.
when they received it,
they murmured against the householder,
, These last ones worked one hour, and you have made them 2equal
to us who bore the burden of the day and the scorching heat.
he answered 1one
of them and said, 2aFriend
, I am doing nothing unrighteous to you. Did you not 3agree
with me for a denarius?
what is yours and go. I want to give to this last one even as I have given to you.
it not lawful for me to do what I 1wish
with what is mine? Or is your eye 2evil
because I am good?
shall the 1alast
be first and the first last.
On the way to Jerusalem
The third unveiling of the crucifixion and resurrection
as Jesus was going up to bJerusalem
, He took the twelve disciples aside privately, and on the way He said to them,
, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and scribes. And they will condemn Him to 1adeath
Him to the Gentiles to bmock
and to scourge and to ccrucify Him,
and on the dthird
day He will be raised.
The throne of the kingdom and the cup of the cross
the mother of the 1sons
came to Him with her sons, worshipping and asking something of Him.
He said to her, What do you want? She said to Him, Say that these two sons of mine will asit
, one on Your right and one on Your left, in Your kingdom.
Jesus answered and said to them,
You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to 1drink
which I am about to drink? They said to Him, We are able.
said to them, My cup you shall indeed adrink
, but to sit on My right and on My left, this is 1not
Mine to give, but it is for
those for whom it has been prepared by My Father.
when the ten heard this,
they were indignant concerning the two brothers.
Jesus called them to Him
and said, You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and the great exercise authority over them.
shall not be so among you; but whoever wants to become agreat
among you shall be your 1servant
whoever wants to be first among you shall be your 1aslave
as the aSon
did not come to be served, but to bserve
and to give His 2life
as a cransom
The healing of the two blind men
as they were going out from Jericho, a great crowd followed Him.
behold, two ablind
men sitting by the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, Lord, 1bSon
the crowd arebuked
them so that they would be silent, but they cried out the more, saying, Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David!
Jesus, standing still, called them and said, What do you want Me to do for you?
said to Him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
Jesus, moved with acompassion
, touched their eyes, and immediately they received their sight and followed Him.
