A. D. 33. “ was wroth: and he sent forth & his armies, M". 22.
" and destroyed those murderers, and burned
“ The wedding is ready, but they which were -Acts 13. “ bidden were not "worthy. Go ye therefore 9
“ into the highways, and as many as ye shall
find, bid to the marriage. So those servants 10 “ went out into the highways, and gathered
together all as many as they found, both bad “ and good : and the wedding was furnished
with guests. And when the king came in to 11
see the guests, he saw there a man i which Eph: 4.24. “ had not on a wedding garment: and he saith 12
speechless. Then said the king to the servants, 13

eth the Sadducees; he answereth the lawyer
which is the first and great commandment. THEN went the Pharisees, and took counsel M". 22. how they might entangle him in his talk. And 15, 16 they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, that they might take hold of his L. 20. words, that so they might deliver him unto the 20 power and authority of the governor. And they 21 asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou MW. 22. art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, 16 neither carest thou for any man : for thou regardest not the person of men. Tell us there- 17 fore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? But Jesus per- 18 ceived their wickedness, and said, “ Why tempt
ye me, ye hypocrites ? shew me the tribute 19 money.” And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, “Whose is this image 20
M". 22.“ and superscription ?" They say unto him, A. D. 33, 21 Cæsar's. Then saith he unto them, “ * Render a Rom. 13.
7. “ Cæsar's; and unto God the things that are L. 20.“ God’s.” And they could not take hold of his
26 words before the people : and they marvelled M". 22. at his answer, and held their peace, and left 22 him, and went their way. .
The same day came to him the Sadducees,

whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they 29 all had her. Jesus answered and said unto them,
“ Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the L. 20.“ power of God. The children of this world 34, 35“ marry, and are given in marriage: but they
