In this chapter we have, I. Christ's answer to the
chief priests' question concerning his authority, ver. 1-8. II. The parable of the
vineyard let out to the unjust and rebellious husbandmen, ver. 9-19. III. Christ's answer to
the question proposed to him concerning the lawfulness of paying
tribute to Cæsar, ver.
20-26. IV. His vindication of that great fundamental
doctrine of the Jewish and Christian institutes—the resurrection
of the dead and the future state, from the foolish cavils of the
Sadducees, ver. 27-38.
V. His puzzling the scribes with a question concerning the
Messiah's being the Son of David, ver. 39-44. VI. The caution he gave his
disciples to take heed of the scribes, ver. 45-47. All which passages we had
before in Matthew and Mark, and therefore need not enlarge upon
them here, unless on those particulars which we had not there.
