Jesus Questions the Leaders

Matt. 22:41–45; Luke 20:41–44

35 xThen Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the temple, “How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the Son of David? 36 For David himself said yby the Holy Spirit:

z‘The Lord said to my Lord,

“Sit at My right hand,

Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” ’

37 Therefore David himself calls Him Lord; how is He then his aSon?”

And the common people heard Him gladly.

Jesus Condemns the Leaders

Matt. 23:1–14; Luke 20:45–21:4

38 Then bHe said to them in His teaching, c “Beware of the scribes, who desire to go around in long robes, dlove greetings in the marketplaces, 39 the ebest seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts, 40 fwho devour widows’ houses, and 5for a pretense make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation.”

41 gNow Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money hinto the treasury. And many who were rich put in much. 42 Then one poor widow came and threw in two 6mites, which make a 7quadrans. 43 So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that ithis poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; 44 for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, jher whole livelihood.”
