Galatians 1:1-10
Mark 12:1-12

Galatians 1:1-10
[1] Paul an apostle — not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead —
[2] and all the brethren who are with me, To the churches of Galatia:
[3] Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ,
[4] who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father;
[5] to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
[6] I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel —
[7] not that there is another gospel, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.
[8] But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be accursed.
[9] As we have said before, so now I say again, If any one is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed.
[10] Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ.

Mark 12:1-12
[1] And he began to speak to them in parables. “A man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a pit for the wine press, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country.
[2] When the time came, he sent a servant to the tenants, to get from them some of the fruit of the vineyard.
[3] And they took him and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed.
[4] Again he sent to them another servant, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully.
[5] And he sent another, and him they killed; and so with many others, some they beat and some they killed.
[6] He had still one other, a beloved son; finally he sent him to them, saying, `They will respect my son.’
[7] But those tenants said to one another, `This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’
[8] And they took him and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
[9] What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the tenants, and give the vineyard to others.
[10] Have you not read this scripture: `The very stone which the builders rejected
has become the head of the corner;
[11] this was the Lord’s doing,
and it is marvelous in our eyes’?”
[12] And they tried to arrest him, but feared the multitude, for they perceived that he had told the parable against them; so they left him and went away.
