Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall
find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.
And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and

upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon,
but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And

tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.

But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said,
Son, go work to day in my vineyard.

and went not.
Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first.
Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go
into the kingdom of God before you.
For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but

Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard,
and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it
out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen,

And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned

builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s
doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to
