Matthew 21:28Matthew 21:32

(a) The Shifting of the Birthright

28 But what do you think? A man had two children. And he came to his first son and said, Child, go today and work in the avineyard.

29 And he answered and said, I do not want to; yet later he regretted and went.

30 And he came to the other and said likewise. And he answered and said, I will, sir; yet he did not go.

31 Which of the two did the will of the father? They said, The 1first. Jesus said to them, Truly I say to you that the atax collectors and the bharlots are going into the kingdom of cGod before you.

32 For John came to you in the away of 1righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the harlots believed him. And you, when you saw it, did not later regret it to believe him.
