Mark 3:22–30

Scribes Commit the Unpardonable Sin

Matt. 12:24–32; Luke 11:17–23

22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, s“He has Beelzebub,” and, “By the truler of the demons He casts out demons.”

23 uSo He called them to Himself and said to them in parables: How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan has risen up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. 27 vNo one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.
