A Samaritan was taking a lamb and going into Judea. He said to his disciples:
"What about that one with the lamb?" They answered: "..So that

while it lives, but he will kill it, and it will become a corpse." They
said to him: "He can not do it any other way!" He said to them:
"You too, yourselves seek after a place of rest in yourself, so that
you do not become corpses, and are eaten!"

one will die and the other will live."
Salome says: "Who are you, man? While one is out, you did climb on my
bed and did eat off my table?" Jesus said to her: "I am He who

some money for some traders who are coming this evening, and I will place orders
with them. I beg excuse from the dinner.' Going to another he said to him: 'My
Lord calls you.' He said to him: 'I have bought a house and it requires a day's
time of me; I will not be free.' He went to another and said to him: 'My Lord
calls you!' He replied; 'My friend is getting married, and I am giving the dinner,
and can't come. I beg excuse from the dinner.' He went to another and said to
him: 'My Lord calls you!' He said to him; 'I have bought a field and I am going
to collect the taxes. I cannot come; I beg to be excused.' The servant returned
and spoke this to his Lord: 'Those whom you called to the dinner have begged to
be excused.' The Lord said to his servant; 'Go out into the streets and those

also. Then the Lord sent his son. He said to himself, 'Perhaps they will be
ashamed before my son.' Because the tenants there knew that he was the heir
to the vineyard, they killed him. He who has ears let him listen!"
