- passage: 1Peter 1:1-1:1
Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout
Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
passage: 1Peter 1:2-1:2
Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through
sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the
blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
passage: 1Peter 1:10-1:12
Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently,
who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or
what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify,
when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that
should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves,
but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto
you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost
sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
passage: Mark 12:1-12:12
And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted
a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the
winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into
a far country. And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant,
that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty. And again he
sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded
him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled. And again he
sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some,
and killing some. Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved,
he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come,
let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be our's. And they took him,
and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. What shall therefore
the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen,
and will give the vineyard unto others. And have ye not read this
scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of
the corner: This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they
knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him,
and went their way.
