路加福音 20

質問耶穌的權柄

1有一天,耶穌正在聖殿裡教導人、傳講福音,祭司長、律法教師和長老上前, 質問祂:「告訴我們,你憑什麼權柄做這些事?誰授權給你了?」

耶穌回答說:「我也問你們一個問題。你們告訴我, 約翰的洗禮是從天上來的還是從人來的?」

他們彼此議論說:「如果我們說『是從天上來的』,祂一定會問,『那你們為什麼不相信他?』 如果我們說『是從人來的』,百姓會拿石頭打死我們,因為他們相信約翰是先知。」 於是,他們回答說:「我們不知道約翰的洗禮是從哪裡來的。」

耶穌說:「我也不告訴你們我憑什麼權柄做這些事。」

利慾薰心的佃戶

接著耶穌對眾人講了個比喻:「有人開墾了一個葡萄園,把園子租給幾個佃戶,就出遠門了。 10 到了收穫的季節,他差奴僕去葡萄園向佃戶收取他應得的收成,但那些佃戶卻把奴僕揍了一頓,使他空手而歸。 11 園主又派另一個奴僕去,那些佃戶照樣將他毆打並羞辱一番,使他空手而歸。 12 園主又派第三個奴僕去,他們又把他打傷,拋在園外。

13 「園主說,『我該怎樣辦呢?不如叫我所疼愛的兒子去吧。他們大概會尊敬他。』

14 「豈料那些佃戶看見來人是園主的兒子,便彼此商量說,『這個人是產業繼承人,我們把他殺掉,這葡萄園就歸我們了!』 15 於是他們把園主的兒子拖到葡萄園外殺了。

「那麼,園主會怎樣處治他們呢? 16 他必來殺掉這些佃戶,把葡萄園轉租給別人。」

眾人聽了就說:「但願這種事永遠不會發生!」

17 耶穌定睛看著他們,問道:「那麼,聖經上說,

『工匠丟棄的石頭已成了房角石』,

這句話是什麼意思呢? 18 凡跌在這石頭上的人,將粉身碎骨;這石頭落在誰身上,將把誰砸爛。」

納稅問題

19 律法教師和祭司長聽出這比喻是針對他們說的,便想立刻下手捉拿耶穌,但又害怕百姓。 20 於是,他們密切地監視耶穌,又派遣密探假裝好人,想從祂的話裡找把柄抓祂去見總督。

21 那些密探問耶穌:「老師,我們知道你所講所傳的道都是正確的,也知道你不看人的情面,只按真理傳上帝的道。 22 那麼,我們向凱撒納稅對不對呢?」

23 耶穌看破他們的陰謀, 24 就叫他們拿一個銀幣來,問他們:「上面刻的是誰的像和名號?」他們說:「凱撒的。」

25 耶穌說:「屬於凱撒的,要給凱撒;屬於上帝的,要給上帝。」

26 耶穌的回答令他們驚奇,他們無法當眾找到把柄,只好閉口不言。

論死人復活

27 撒督該人向來不相信有復活的事。有幾個這一派的人來問耶穌: 28 「老師,按摩西為我們寫的律例,如果有人娶妻後沒有孩子就死了,他的兄弟應當娶嫂嫂,替哥哥傳宗接代。 29 有弟兄七人,老大結了婚,沒有孩子就死了。 30 二弟、 31 三弟、一直到七弟都相繼娶了嫂嫂,都沒有留下孩子就死了。 32 最後那個女人也死了。 33 那麼,到復活的時候,她將是誰的妻子呢?因為七個人都娶過她。」

34 耶穌說:「今世的人才有嫁娶, 35 但那些配得將來的世界、從死裡復活的人也不娶也不嫁, 36 就像天使一樣永遠不會死。他們既然從死裡復活,就是上帝的兒女。 37 在記載關於燃燒的荊棘的篇章中,摩西也證實死人會復活,因為他稱主是『亞伯拉罕的上帝,以撒的上帝,雅各的上帝』。 38 上帝不是死人的上帝,而是活人的上帝。因為在祂那裡的人都是活人。」

39 幾位律法教師說:「老師答得好!」 40 此後,再沒有人敢問耶穌問題了。

論基督

41 耶穌問他們:「人怎麼說基督是大衛的後裔呢? 42 大衛曾在詩篇裡說,

『主對我主說,
你坐在我的右邊,
43 等我使你的仇敵成為你的腳凳。』

44 既然大衛稱基督為主,基督又怎麼會是大衛的後裔呢?」

45 大家正在細聽,耶穌對門徒說: 46 「你們要提防律法教師。他們愛穿著長袍招搖過市,喜歡人們在大街上問候他們,又喜歡會堂裡的上座和宴席中的首位。 47 他們侵吞寡婦的財產,還假意做冗長的禱告。這種人必受到更嚴厲的懲罰!」

New International Version

Luke 20

The Authority of Jesus Questioned

1One day as Jesus was teaching the people in the temple courts and proclaiming the good news, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, together with the elders, came up to him. “Tell us by what authority you are doing these things,” they said. “Who gave you this authority?”

He replied, “I will also ask you a question. Tell me: John’s baptism—was it from heaven, or of human origin?”

They discussed it among themselves and said, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will ask, ‘Why didn’t you believe him?’ But if we say, ‘Of human origin,’ all the people will stone us, because they are persuaded that John was a prophet.”

So they answered, “We don’t know where it was from.”

Jesus said, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.”

The Parable of the Tenants

He went on to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time. 10 At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed. 11 He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed. 12 He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out.

13 “Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him.’

14 “But when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over. ‘This is the heir,’ they said. ‘Let’s kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’ 15 So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.

“What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? 16 He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.”

When the people heard this, they said, “God forbid!”

17 Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written:

“‘The stone the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone’[a]?

18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.”

19 The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people.

Paying Taxes to Caesar

20 Keeping a close watch on him, they sent spies, who pretended to be sincere. They hoped to catch Jesus in something he said, so that they might hand him over to the power and authority of the governor. 21 So the spies questioned him: “Teacher, we know that you speak and teach what is right, and that you do not show partiality but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. 22 Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”

23 He saw through their duplicity and said to them, 24 “Show me a denarius. Whose image and inscription are on it?”

“Caesar’s,” they replied.

25 He said to them, “Then give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”

26 They were unable to trap him in what he had said there in public. And astonished by his answer, they became silent.

The Resurrection and Marriage

27 Some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus with a question. 28 “Teacher,” they said, “Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and raise up offspring for his brother. 29 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married a woman and died childless. 30 The second 31 and then the third married her, and in the same way the seven died, leaving no children. 32 Finally, the woman died too. 33 Now then, at the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”

34 Jesus replied, “The people of this age marry and are given in marriage. 35 But those who are considered worthy of taking part in the age to come and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage, 36 and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection. 37 But in the account of the burning bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’[b] 38 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”

39 Some of the teachers of the law responded, “Well said, teacher!” 40 And no one dared to ask him any more questions.

Whose Son Is the Messiah?

41 Then Jesus said to them, “Why is it said that the Messiah is the son of David? 42 David himself declares in the Book of Psalms:

“‘The Lord said to my Lord:
    “Sit at my right hand
43 until I make your enemies
    a footstool for your feet.”’[c]

44 David calls him ‘Lord.’ How then can he be his son?”

Warning Against the Teachers of the Law

45 While all the people were listening, Jesus said to his disciples, 46 “Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. 47 They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. These men will be punished most severely.”
