The parable of the marriage of the king's son.
Matthew 22:1 And Iesus answered and spake vnto them agayne in similitudes sayinge. Matthew 22:2 The kingdome of heve is lyke vnto a certayne kynge which maryed his sonne Matthew 22:3 and sent forth his servantes to call them that were byd to the weddinge and they wolde not come. Matthew 22:4 Ageyne he sent forth other servauntes sayinge: Tell them which are bydden: beholde I have prepared my dynner myne oxen and my fatlinges are kylled and all thinges are redy come vnto the mariage. Matthew 22:5 But they made light of it and went their wayes: one to his ferme place another about his marchaundise Matthew 22:6 the remnaunt toke his seruantes and intreated them vngodly and slewe them. Matthew 22:7 When the kinge hearde that he was wroth and send forth his warryers and distroyed those murtherers and brent vp their cyte. Matthew 22:8 Then sayde he to his servauutes: the weddinge was prepared. But they which were bydden were not worthy.
The vocation of the Gentiles.
Matthew 22:9 Go ye therfore out into ye hyewayes and as many as ye finde byd them to the mariage. Matthew 22:10 The seruauntes wet out into the hiewayes and gaddered to gedder as many as they coulde fynde both good and bad and ye weddinge was furnysshed with gestes.
Matthew 22:11 Then the kynge came in to viset the gestes and spyed there a ma which had not on a weddinge garment
The punishment of him that wanted the wedding garment.
Matthew 22:12 and sayde vnto him: frende how fortuned it that thou camest in hither and hast not on a weddyng garment? And he was eve spechlesse. Matthew 22:13 Then sayde the kynge to his ministers: take and bynde hym hand and fote and caste hym into vtter darcknes there shalbe wepinge and gnasshinge of teth. Matthew 22:14 For many are called and feawe be chosen.
Tribute ought to be paid to Caesar.
Matthew 22:15 Then wet the Pharises and toke counsell how they might tagle him in his wordes. Matthew 22:16 And they sent vnto him their disciples with Herodes servauntes sayinge: Master we knowe yt thou are true and teachest the waye of god trulie nether carest for eny man for thou consydrest not menes estate. Matthew 22:17 Tell vs therfore: how thynkest thou? Is it lawfull to geve tribute vnto Cesar or not? Matthew 22:18 Iesus perceaved their wikednes and sayde: Why tempte ye me ye ypocrites? Matthew 22:19 Let me se ye tribute money. And they toke hym a peny. Matthew 22:20 And he sayde vnto them: whose is this ymage and superscripcion? Matthew 22:21 They sayde vnto him: Cesars. Then sayde he vnto them. Geve therfore to Cesar that which is Cesars: and geve vnto god that which is goddes. Matthew 22:22 When they hearde that they marveled and lefte hym and went there waye.
Christ confuteth the Sadducees for the resurrection:
Matthew 22:23 The same daye the Saduces came to him (which saye that there is no resurrcecion) and axed him Matthew 22:24 sayinge: Master Moses bade yf a man dye havinge no chyldre that the brother mary his wyfe and reyse vp seed vnto his brother. Matthew 22:25 Ther were wt vs seven brethre and the fyrste maried and deceased wt oute yssue and lefte his wyfe vnto his brother. Matthew 22:26 Lykewise the seconde and ye thryd vnto the sevethe. Matthew 22:27 Laste of all the woman dyed also. Matthew 22:28 Now in the resurreccion whose wyfe shall she be of the seven? For all had her. Matthew 22:29 Iesus answered and sayde vnto the: ye are deceaved and vnderstonde not the scriptures nor yet the power of God. Matthew 22:30 For in the resurreccion they nether mary nor are maryed: but are as the angels of God in heven. Matthew 22:31 As touchynge the resurreccion of the deed: have ye not redde what is sayde vnto you of God which sayeth: Matthew 22:32 I am Abrahams God and Ysaacks God and the God of Iacob? God is not the God of the deed: but of the lyvinge. Matthew 22:33 And when the people hearde that they were astonyed at his doctrine.

Matthew 22:34 When the Pharises had hearde how yt he had put the Saduces to silence they drewe to gedder Matthew 22:35 and one of them which was a doctoure of lawe axed a question teptinge h m and sayinge: Matthew 22:36 Master which is ye chefe comaundment in the lawe? Matthew 22:37 Iesus sayde vnto him: love the Lorde thy God wt all thine herte with all thy soule and with all thy mynde. Matthew 22:38 This is the fyrst and the chefe comaundement. Matthew 22:39 And ther is another lyke vnto this. Love thyne neghbour as thy selfe. Matthew 22:40 In these two commaundemetes hange all the lawe and the Prophetes.
and poseth the Pharisees about the Messias.
Matthew 22:41 Whyll the Pharises were gaddered togeder Iesus axed Matthew 22:42 the sayinge: what thinke ye of Christ? Whose sonne is he? They sayde vnto him: the sonne of David. Matthew 22:43 He sayde vnto the: how then doeth David in spirite call him Lorde sayinge? Matthew 22:44 The Lorde sayde to my Lorde syt on my right honde: tyll I make thyne enemyes thy fote stole. Matthew 22:45 Yf David call him Lorde: how is he then his sonne? Matthew 22:46 And none coulde answere him ageyne one worde: nether dueste eny from that daye forth axe him eny moo questions.
