12:1And he beganne to speake vnto them by parables. A certayne man planted a vyneyarde, and compassed it aboute wt an hedge, and ordeined a wyne presse, and bylt a toure, and let it out to hyre vnto husbandmen, and went into a straunge countre.
12:2And when the tyme was come, he sent to the husbandmen a seruaunt, that he myght receaue of the husbandmen of the frute of the vyneyarde.
12:3And they caught hym, and bet hym, and sent hym awaye agayne emptye.
12:4And moreouer, he sent vnto them another seruaunt, and at hym they cast stones and brake hys heed, & sent him awaye agayne all to reuyled.
12:5And agayne, he sent another, and him they kylled: and many other, beatynge some, and kyllinge some.
12:6And so whan he had yet but one beloued sonne, he sent him also at the last vnto them, sayinge: they wyll feare my sonne.
12:7But the husbandmen sayd amongest them selues: this is the heyre: come let vs kyl him, & the inheritaunce shalbe oures.
12:8And they toke him & kylled him, & cast hym out of the vyneyard.
12:9What shall therfore the Lorde of the vyneyarde do? He shall come, ad destroye the husbandmen, & let out the vyneyarde vnto other.
12:10Haue ye not red this scrypture? The stone whych the buylders dyd refuse, is become the chefe stoone of the corner?
12:11this is the Lordes doynge, & it is meruelous in oure eyes.
12:12They went about also to take him, & feared the people. For they knewe, that he had spoken the parable agaynst them. And they left hym and went theyr waye:
12:13And they sent vnto hym certayne of the Pharises & Herodes seruauntes, to take him in his wordes.
12:14And assone as they were come, they sayd vnto him: Master, we knowe that thou arte true, & carest for no man: for thou consyderest not the outward appearaunce of men, but teachest the waye of God truly: Is it laufull to paye tribute to Cesar, or not?
12:15Ought we to geue, or ought we not to geue? But he vnderstode theyr symulacyon, and sayd vnto them: Why tempte ye me? Bringe me a peny, that I maye se it.
12:16And they brought it. And he sayeth vnto them: Whose is thys ymage & superscripcyon? And they sayde vnto hym: Cesars.
12:17And Iesus answered, and sayde vnto them: Geue to Cesar the thinges that belonge to Cesar: and to God, the thynges whych perteyne to God. And they meruelled at hym.
12:18There came also vnto hym the Saduces, whych saye that ther is no resurreccyon. And they asked hym sayinge:
12:19Master Moses wrote vnto vs, yf eny mans brother dye, and leaue hys wyfe behynde hym, and leaue no chyldren: that hys brother shuld take hys wyfe, and reyse vp seed vnto hys brother.
12:20There were seuen brethren, and the fyrst toke a wyfe: and when he dyed, left no seed behynde hym.
12:21And the seconde toke hyr, and dyed: nether left he any seed. And the thyrde lykewyse.
12:22And seuen had her, and left no seed behynde them. Last of all the wyfe dyed also.
12:23In the resurreccyon therfore when they shall ryse agayne: whose wyfe shall she be of them? For seuen had her to wyfe.
12:24And Iesus answered, and sayd vnto them: Do ye not therfore erre, because ye vnderstande not the scriptures, nether the power of God?
12:25For when they shall ryse agayne from deeth, they nether mary, nor are maryed: but are as the angels, whych are in heauen.
12:26As touching the deed, that they ryse agayne: haue ye not redde in the boke of Moses, how in the bushe, God spake vnto hym, sayinge: I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac, and the God of Iacob?
12:27He is no God of deed, but the God of lyuynge. Ye are therfore greatly deceaued.
12:28And whan ther came one of the Scrybes, and had hearde them disputynge to gether (and perceaued that he had answered them well) he asked hym: whych is the fyrst of all the commaundementes?
12:29Iesus answered him, the fyrste of all the commaundementes is: Heare O Israell: The Lorde oure God, is Lord onely:
12:30And thou shalt loue the Lorde thy God with all thy hert, & wyth all thy soule, and wyth all thy mynde, and with all thy strength. This is the fyrste commaundment.
12:31And the seconde is lyke vnto thys: Thou shalt loue thy neyghbour as thy selfe. Ther is none other commaundment greater then these.
12:32And the Scrybe sayde vnto him: well master, thou hast sayd the truthe, for ther is one God, & ther is none but he.
12:33And to loue hym wyth all the herte, and wyth all the mynde, & wyth all the soule, & wyth all the strength: and to loue a mans neyghbour as hym selfe, is a greater thynge, then all burt offerynges and sacrifyces.
12:34And when Iesus sawe that he answered discretly, he sayde vnto hym: Thou art not farre from the kyngdome of God. And no man after that, durst aske hym any questyon.
12:35And Iesus answered & sayde, teachinge in the temple: how saye the Scrybes that Chryst is the sonne of Dauid?
12:36for Dauid him selfe inspired wt the holy goost, sayd: The Lorde sayde to my Lorde, syt on my ryght hande tyll I make thyne enemyes thy fote stole.
12:37Dauid him selfe calleth him Lord: & how is he then hys sonne? And moche people hearde him gladly:
12:38And he sayde vnto them in his doctrine: beware of the Scribes, which loue to go in longe clothynge: & loue salutacions in the market places,
12:39and the chefe seates in the congregacyons, and the vppermost roumes at feastes:
12:40whych deuoure wydowes houses, and vnder a pretence, make longe prayers. These shall receaue greater dampnacyon.
12:41And whan Iesus sat ouer agaynst the treasury, he behelde, how the people put money into the treasury. And many that were ryche, cast in moch.
12:42And ther cam a certayne poore wydowe, and she threwe in two mytes, whych make a farthynge.
12:43And he called vnto him hys discyples & sayeth vnto them. Uerely I saye vnto you, that thys poore wydowe hath cast moare in, then all they which haue cast into the treasury.
12:44For they all dyd cast in of their superfluyte: but she of her pouerte, dyd cast in all that she had, euen all her lyuynge.

The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible of 1539 was the first authorized edition of the Bible in English, authorized by King Henry VIII of England to be read aloud in the church services of the Church of England. The Great Bible was prepared by Myles Coverdale, working under commission of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Secretary to Henry VIII and Vicar General. In 1538, Cromwell directed the clergy to provide "one book of the bible of the largest volume in English, and the same set up in some convenient place within the said church that ye have care of, whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it."
