Matthew 22
1Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered and spoke to them again in the words of a parable.
2“The Kingdom of heaven is like a king who made a wedding ceremony”
3“He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the wedding ceremony, but they did not wish to come”.
4“He again sent other servants saying: ‘Tell those who are invited, behold I have prepared a feast, I have killed oxen and fowl, and all is ready. Come to the wedding ceremony’”.
5“But they scorned and went away, some into the city and some to their businesses”.
6“Others took his servants, abused them, and killed them”.
7“The king heard this, was angry, sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burnt their house with fire”.
8“Then he said to his servants: ‘The marriage ceremony is ready, but those who were invited were unworthy’”.
9“Now, go out unto the roads and all whom you find invite to the marriage ceremony”.
10“His servants went out unto the ways and assembled all those who were found, good and bad; so the marriage ceremony was filled with those who were eating”.
11“The king entered to see those who were eating and saw there a man who was not clothed in wedding garments”.
12“He said to him: ‘My friend how did you come in here without wedding garments?’ He was silent”.
13“Then the king said to his servants: ‘Bind his hands and feet and cast him to the lower most and lowest hell; in that place will be weeping and gnashing of teeth’”.
14“Many are called but few are chosen.”
15Then the P’rushim (Pharisees) [separatists] came and took counsel how to trap him in what he said.
16They sent him some of their disciples, with violent men from Herod [heroic] saying: ‘Rabbi, we know that you are faithful, you faithfully study the way of Elohim (The Many Powered) [The Living Word of God], you fear nothing, and are impartial’.
17‘Tell us your opinion: Is it right to give tribute to Caesar [venerable] or not?’
18Yeshua [God is Salvation] recognized their deceit and said: “Why do you entice me, hypocrites?”
19“Show me a tax coin”. They brought a plain one to him.
20He said to them: “Whose likeness is this and inscription?”
21They said: ‘Caesar [venerable]’s’. Then Yeshua [God is Salvation] said to them: “Return to Caesar [venerable] that which is Caesar [venerable]’s and to Elohim (The Many Powered) [The Living Word of God] that which is Elohim (The Many Powered) [The Living Word of God]’s”.
22They heard and were amazed. They left him and went away.
23On that day, the Tz’dukim (Sadducees) [followers of the right] and those who deny the resurrection of the dead met him. They asked him
24saying: ‘Rabbi, Moshe [drawn out] surely said to us: “When brothers dwell together and one of them dies and has no son, his brother should take his wife to raise up the seed of his brother”.
25‘Behold there were seven brothers among us. The first one took a wife, died without seed and his brother married his wife’.
26‘Likewise the second and third unto the seventh’.
27‘After them the woman died’.
28‘Since she had already belonged to all of them, to which of the seven will she be a wife, in the resurrection?’
29Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered and said to them: “You err and do not understand the Writings or the power of The Mighty One”.
30“In the day of resurrection, men will not take women nor women men, but they will be like the angels of Elohim (The Many Powered) [The Living Word of God] in heaven”.
31“Have you not read concerning the resurrection of the dead that Yehovah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] spoke to you saying”:
32“I, Yehovah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], am Elohe Avraham [the God of Exalted Father], Elohe Yitz’chak [the God of Laughter], and Elohe Ya’akov [the God if He who grabs onto the heal of]”?. If so He is not Elohim (The Many Powered) [The Living Word of God] of the dead but Elohim (The Many Powered) [The Living Word of God] of the living”
33The crowds heard and were amazed at his wisdom.
34When the P’rushim (Pharisees) [separatists] saw that the Tz’dukim (Sadducees) [followers of the right] had no answer, they gathered together.
35Then a scribe asked him, tempting him:
36‘Rabbi, tell us which is the greatest commandment in the Torah?’
37He said to him: “Thou shalt love Yehovah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] your Elohim (The Many Powered) [The Living Word of God] with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength”.
38“This is the first and great commandment.”
39“The second is like it: “Thou shalt love your neighbour as yourself”
40“Upon these two commandments the whole law hangs and the prophets”
41The P’rushim (Pharisees) [separatists] assembled and Yeshua [God is Salvation] asked them
42saying: “What is your opinion concerning Ha-Moshiach [Messiah] [The Messiah], whose son will he be? They said to him: ‘The son of David [Beloved].’
43He said to them: “How is it that David [Beloved] by Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit [Ruach]) called him saying ‘Adon [Lord - Kurios of the Earth]’”,;
44“as it is written: “Yehovah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] said to my Adon [Lord - Kurios of the earth] sit at My right hand until I make your enemies your footstool”
45“If David [Beloved] called him ‘Adon [Lord - Kurios of the Earth]’, how is he his son?”
46They were not able to answer him a word and from then on they feared to ask him anything.
