Gospel presentations of Jesus #2

Jesus was at the temple and already teaching when some chief priests and other religious leaders arrived and came up to him. . .

Jesus continued “Tell me what you think about this. There was a man who had two sons. He went and told his older son, ‘Today, I want you to work in my vineyard.’

The son replied ‘'I do not want to,’ but later he had a change of heart, so he went and worked in the vineyard.

Now, the father also gave the same order to his younger son. This one said ‘Yes sir,” right away, but he never went to the vineyard.”

Jesus the asked them, “Now, which son did what his father wanted?”

The religious leaders replied, “It was the older son.”

“I can assure you that this is an absolute truth,” Jesus said. “Tax-collectors and prostitutes are entering into God’s kingdom ahead of you.”

-- Somewhere in Matthew 21

What translation is that?

It's not a Bible translation. I am putting it in my own words. Paraphrasing the scripture is a great way to really learn it and get it by heart.

I am not putting exact references so that people will have to look them up themseleves if they want.
