Matthew 21
1They drew near to Yerushalayim [abode of peace] and came to Bethpage on the Mount of Olives, and Yeshua [God is Salvation] sent two of his disciples.
2He said unto them: “Go into the fortress which is opposite you and immediately you will find a she-ass and her colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me”.
3“If a man should say anything to you, tell him the Master has need of them and immediately he will let them go.”
4All this was to fulfill the word of the prophet saying:
5“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion, shout, O daughter of Yerushalayim [abode of peace]; behold, thy King cometh unto thee, he is triumphant, and victorious, humble, and riding upon a she-ass, even upon a colt the foal of a she-ass”.
6They went and did as Yeshua [God is Salvation] commanded them.
7They brought the she-ass and the colt, and when the others had placed their garments and clothes upon them, Yeshua [God is Salvation] rode upon them. Then they made the ascent.
8Many of the crowd spread out their garments in the road, and others cut branches from trees and cast them before him and behind him,
9calling out saying: “Please! Deliver us! [Hoshi-annah] in the Highest. Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) is He who comes in the name of Yehovah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]. Please! Deliver us! [Hoshi-annah] in the Highest”
10It came to pass afterwards, when Yeshua [God is Salvation] entered Yerushalayim [abode of peace], all the city was moved saying: ‘Who is this?’
11The people said to one another: ‘Yeshua [God is Salvation] the Prophet from Natzeret [separated] which is in Galil [circuit]’.
12Yeshua [God is Salvation] entered the house of Yehovah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] and found there those who buy and sell. He overturned the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who were selling doves.
13He said unto them: “It is written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations, but you have made it a cave of thieves’”.
14Then the blind and lame came to him in the temple and he healed them.
15The chief priests and the Torah-teachers (Scribes) came to see the wonders which he did. The young children were calling out in the temple saying: “Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) is He who comes in The Name of Yehovah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], the King of Y’sra’el [he who holds onto the heal of God], the Son of The Mighty One”. The Torah-teachers (Scribes) deceived
16and said to Him: ‘Have you not heard what these are saying?’ He answered them and said: “I heard them. Have you not read: ‘From the mouth of children and babes You have established strength’?”
17He left and went out to Beit-Anyah [house of figs] and spent the night there and there he was explaining to them the Kingdom of Elohim (The Many Powered) [The Living Word of God].
18It came to pass in the morning that he returned to the city hungry.
19He saw a fig tree near the road and drew near to it but found nothing on it except leaves. He said to it: “May fruit never come forth from you”. Immediately the fig tree dried up.
20The disciples saw, were amazed, and said: ‘How is it the fig tree dried up immediately?’
21Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered and said to them: “If you have faith without doubt, not only to the fig tree will you do, but should you say to this mountain that it should depart and go into the sea, it will be done”
22“Everything which you shall ask in prayer while believing, you will receive”.
23He went into the temple to teach and there came unto him the Torah-teachers (Scribes), the priests and the rulers of the people saying: ‘By what power do you do this and who gave you this strength?’
24Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered them and said to them: “I also will ask you a question and if you tell me I also will tell you by what power I work”.
25“The baptism of Yochanan [Yah is gracious] from where was it, from heaven or from men?”. They grieved among themselves saying: ‘What will we say. If we say from heaven, he will say to us: Why did you not believe him?’
26‘If we say from men, we fear the crowd because all of them believe Yochanan [Yah is gracious] was a prophet.’
27So they said: ‘We do not know’. He said: “Also, I will not tell you by what power I work”
28“What is your opinion? A certain man had two sons; he approached one and said to him: ‘Go my son today to work in my vineyard’.
29“He said to him: ‘I do not wish to’. But afterward he repented and went”.
30“He said to the other likewise and he answered him: ‘Here I am, Sir’, but he did not go”.
31“Which of the two did the will of the father?” They said to him: ‘The first’. Yeshua [God is Salvation] said to them: “Truly I say to you, tax collectors and harlots will precede you into the Kingdom of heaven,
32“because Yochanan [Yah is gracious] came to you in the Way of righteousness and you did not believe him. But tax collectors and harlots believed him and you saw it and did not turn in repentance. Also afterward you did not repent to believe him. To the one who has ears to hear let him hear in disgrace.”
33At that time Yeshua [God is Salvation] said to his disciples and to a company of the Jews: “Hear now the parable of the sower. A certain honorable man planted a vineyard, walled it up on every side, built a tower in its midst, and also dug a vat in it, entrusted it to servants, and went on his way”.
34“It came to pass at the time of the gathering of the produce, he sent his servants to those who were working to receive his produce”.
35“But the workers took his servants, struck the first, killed the second, and the third they stoned with stones”.
36“Again he sent many more servants than the first and they did to them likewise”.
37“Finally, he sent them his son saying: ‘They will honour my son’”.
38“The workers saw his son and said to one another: ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and we will inherit his estate’.
39“So they took him, cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him”.
40“Now, when the Adon [Lord - Kurios of the earth] of the vineyard comes what will he do to them?”
41They answered him saying: “As for the wicked he will destroy them in misery and his vineyard he will give to other workers who will immediately give to him the portion of his produce.”
42Yeshua [God is Salvation] said to them: “Have you not read the scripture: ‘The stone the builders rejected is become the head of the corner; This was from Yehovah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]; it is a marvel in our eyes’”.
43“Therefore I say to you the Kingdom of heaven will be torn from you and given to a nation producing fruit”.
44“He who falls upon this stone will be cast down; he who falls upon it will be broken apart.”
45The chief priests and the P’rushim (Pharisees) [separatists] heard his parables and understood that he was speaking in regard to them.
46They sought to kill him but they feared the crowds to whom he was a Prophet.
