Matthew 21:43-46 (Gospel)
- Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing the fruits of it.
- And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.”
- Now when the chief priests and Pharisees heard His parables, they perceived that He was speaking of them.
- But when they sought to lay hands on Him, they feared the multitudes, because they took Him for a prophet.
