Luke 20:1-8 And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the people in the temple and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon him with the elders, And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority do you these things? or who is he that gave you this authority? And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing and answer me. The baptism of John, was it from heaven or of men?  And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven, he will say, Why then didn't you believe him? But and if we say, Of men, all the people will stone us, for they be persuaded that John was a prophet. And they answered, that they could not tell whence it was. And Emmanuel said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.

Luke 20:9-18 Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard and let it forth to husbandmen.(farmers).and went into a far country for a long time. And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard. But the husbandmen beat him and sent him away empty. And again he sent another servant. And they beat him also and entreated him shamefully and sent him away empty. And again he sent a third. And they wounded him also and cast him out. Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son. It may be they will reverence him when they see him. But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours. So they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them? He shall come and destroy these husbandmen and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid. And he beheld them and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner? Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken, but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Luke 20:19 And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him and they feared the people, for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them. 

Luke 20:20,21 And they watched him and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men.(Luke 11:39), that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor. And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that you say and teach rightly.(but they were out to get him nonetheless), neither accept you the person of any, but teach the way of God truly.

Luke 20:22-26 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no? But he perceived their craftiness and said unto them, Why are you tempting me.(they were trying to lead Him into error so they could accuse Him to the Romans of wrong, thereby getting Him into trouble; they were not of sincere.motives, so corrupt were they)? Show me a penny. Whose image and superscription is on it? They answered and said, Caesar's. And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's and unto God the things which be God's. And they could not take hold of his words before the people and they marveled at his answer and held their peace.

Luke 20:27-33 Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection. And they asked him saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife and raise up seed unto his brother. There were therefore seven brethren and the first took a wife and died without children. And the second took her to wife and he died childless. And the third took her and in like manner the seven also and they left no children and died. Last of all the woman died also. Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife.

Luke 20:34 And Emmanuel answering said unto them, The children of this world marry and are given in marriage.(Comprised with.Clarke's Commentary:.procreation being necessary to restore the waste made by death:.1Corinthians 15:26).

Luke 20:35 But they which are worthy to obtain.(original 'hit the mark', that is, their main focus is on spirituality, not on a physical sexual relationships).that world and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage.
   Closer to the original and paraphrased:.'But they of high consciousness obtain the unified field.(that world; the world of causative consciousness, the world or energy field out of which all manifest things come; your world is a direct reflection of what you are; change your world by changing your consciousness to that of high consciousness things).firmly standing in the midst of the dead.(those in ego level living).and are concerned far less over physical things of that level such as male and female relationships because they are forever in harmony with all things.'.Well then, does this mean that it's better not to have a partner?)

Luke 20:36 Neither can they die any more, for they are equal unto the angels.(not equal in all regards yet, but in this one they are now).and are the children of God being the children of the resurrection..(they have superseded the grip ego level thinking has on humanity; they were mature)

Luke 20:38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living, for all live because of him.

Luke 20:38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living.(if you believe in the Creator {John 3:36; 5:24; 6:39,40; 10:27-29; 14:19; 1John 3:1,2; 5:13; Romans 8:19,23; Colossians 3:4; 2Timothy 4:8}, then you're not in the category of those of low consciousness considered, as we all were, 'already dead', until resurrected in mind by being awakened to a better way of living; most even today don't realize that no one really dies; example for us {1Corinthians 10:11} being that of Enoch, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Elijah and others). For all live unto.(word 'unto' not in original; could just as easily and more correctly mean 'because of').him..('for all live because of Him') (Ecclesiastes 9:5)

Luke 20:39,40 Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, you have well said. And after that they durst not ask him any question at all.
