Matthew 22 ©
The parable of the marriage of the king's son: the unworthiness of those that were first bidden: others called in their place: the punishment of one that came without a wedding garment. The question calculated to entangle proposed concerning paying tribute to Caesar, and Christ's answer. He refuteth conclusively the Sadducees who questioned him concerning the resurrection. He showeth which are the chief commandments of the law. He proposeth to the Pharisees a knotty question concerning Christ.
Again, he sent forth dother 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.
And they sent out unto him their disciples with the tHerodians, saying, uMaster, we know that thou art true, and vteachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and 1superscription?
Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:
Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the 2seventh.
And last of all the woman died also.
Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.
But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
This is the first and great commandment.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?
