King James Version

(Pure Cambridge)


  1. IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD     John 1:1-5
  2. 2901 John 1:1   In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    2902 John 1:2   The same was in the beginning with God.

    2903 John 1:3   All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

    2904 John 1:4   In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

    2905 John 1:5   And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

  3. LUKE ADDRESSES THEOPHILUS     Luke 1:1-4
  4. 1750 Luke 1:1   Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,

    1751 Luke 1:2   Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;

    1752 Luke 1:3   It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,

    1753 Luke 1:4   That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.

  5. GABRIEL APPEARS TO ZACHARIAS     Luke 1:5-22
  6. 1754 Luke 1:5   There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.

    1755 Luke 1:6   And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

    1756 Luke 1:7   And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.

    1757 Luke 1:8   And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course,

    1758 Luke 1:9   According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.

    1759 Luke 1:10  And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.

    1760 Luke 1:11  And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

    1761 Luke 1:12  And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.

    1762 Luke 1:13  But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

    1763 Luke 1:14  And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.

    1764 Luke 1:15  For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.

    1765 Luke 1:16  And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.

    1766 Luke 1:17  And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

    1767 Luke 1:18  And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.

    1768 Luke 1:19  And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

    1769 Luke 1:20  And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.

    1770 Luke 1:21  And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple.

    1771 Luke 1:22  And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless.

  7. JOHN THE BAPTIST CONCEIVED     Luke 1:23-25
  8. 1772 Luke 1:23  And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.

    1773 Luke 1:24  And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying,

    1774 Luke 1:25  Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.

  9. GABRIEL APPEARS TO MARY     Luke 1:26-38
  10. 1775 Luke 1:26  And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

    1776 Luke 1:27  To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.

    1777 Luke 1:28  And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

    1778 Luke 1:29  And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

    1779 Luke 1:30  And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

    1780 Luke 1:31  And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

    1781 Luke 1:32  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

    1782 Luke 1:33  And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

    1783 Luke 1:34  Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

    1784 Luke 1:35  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

    1785 Luke 1:36  And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

    1786 Luke 1:37  For with God nothing shall be impossible.

    1787 Luke 1:38  And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

  11. THE WORD IS MADE FLESH (JESUS CONCEIVED)    John 1:9-14
  12. 2909 John 1:9   That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

    2910 John 1:10  He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

    2911 John 1:11  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

    2912 John 1:12  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

    2913 John 1:13  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

    2914 John 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

  13. MARY VISITS ELISABETH    Luke 1:39-56
  14. 1788 Luke 1:39  And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;

    1789 Luke 1:40  And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.

    1790 Luke 1:41  And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

    1791 Luke 1:42  And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

    1792 Luke 1:43  And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

    1793 Luke 1:44  For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.

    1794 Luke 1:45  And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

    1795 Luke 1:46  And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,

    1796 Luke 1:47  And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

    1797 Luke 1:48  For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

    1798 Luke 1:49  For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.

    1799 Luke 1:50  And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

    1800 Luke 1:51  He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

    1801 Luke 1:52  He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.

    1802 Luke 1:53  He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

    1803 Luke 1:54  He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

    1804 Luke 1:55  As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

    1805 Luke 1:56  And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.

  15. ANGEL APPEARS TO JOSEPH IN A DREAM     Matthew 1:18-25
  16. 0018 Matt 1:18  Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

    0019 Matt 1:19  Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.

    0020 Matt 1:20  But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

    0021 Matt 1:21  And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

    0022 Matt 1:22  Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

    0023 Matt 1:23  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

    0024 Matt 1:24  Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

    0025 Matt 1:25  And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

  17. BIRTH OF JOHN THE BAPTIST    Luke 1:57-80
  18. 1806 Luke 1:57  Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son.

    1807 Luke 1:58  And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.

    1808 Luke 1:59  And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.

    1809 Luke 1:60  And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.

    1810 Luke 1:61  And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.

    1811 Luke 1:62  And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.

    1812 Luke 1:63  And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all.

    1813 Luke 1:64  And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.

    1814 Luke 1:65  And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea.

    1815 Luke 1:66  And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.

    1816 Luke 1:67  And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,

    1817 Luke 1:68  Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,

    1818 Luke 1:69  And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;

    1819 Luke 1:70  As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:

    1820 Luke 1:71  That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;

    1821 Luke 1:72  To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;

    1822 Luke 1:73  The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,

    1823 Luke 1:74  That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,

    1824 Luke 1:75  In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.

    1825 Luke 1:76  And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;

    1826 Luke 1:77  To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,

    1827 Luke 1:78  Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,

    1828 Luke 1:79  To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

    1829 Luke 1:80  And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.

  19. ANCESTRY OF JESUS     Matthew 1:1-17, Luke 3:23b-38
  20. 0001 Matt 1:1   The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

    0002 Matt 1:2   Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;

    0003 Matt 1:3   And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;

    0004 Matt 1:4   And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;

    0005 Matt 1:5   And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;

    0006 Matt 1:6   And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;

    0007 Matt 1:7   And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;

    0008 Matt 1:8   And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias;

    0009 Matt 1:9   And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;

    0010 Matt 1:10  And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;

    0011 Matt 1:11  And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:

    0012 Matt 1:12  And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;

    0013 Matt 1:13  And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;

    0014 Matt 1:14  And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;

    0015 Matt 1:15  And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;

    0016 Matt 1:16  And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

    0017 Matt 1:17  So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

  21. BIRTH OF JESUS     Luke 2:1-7
  22. 1830 Luke 2:1   And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

    1831 Luke 2:2   (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

    1832 Luke 2:3   And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

    1833 Luke 2:4   And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

    1834 Luke 2:5   To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

    1835 Luke 2:6   And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

    1836 Luke 2:7   And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

  23. SHEPHERDS VISIT MANGER AND THEN PROCLAIM JESUS' BIRTH     Luke 2:8-20
  24. 1837 Luke 2:8   And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

    1838 Luke 2:9   And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

    1839 Luke 2:10  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

    1840 Luke 2:11  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

    1841 Luke 2:12  And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

    1842 Luke 2:13  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

    1843 Luke 2:14  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

    1844 Luke 2:15  And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

    1845 Luke 2:16  And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

    1846 Luke 2:17  And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

    1847 Luke 2:18  And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

    1848 Luke 2:19  But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

    1849 Luke 2:20  And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

  25. WISE MEN MEET HEROD     Matthew 2:1-8
  26. 0026 Matt 2:1   Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

    0027 Matt 2:2   Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

    0028 Matt 2:3   When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

    0029 Matt 2:4   And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

    0030 Matt 2:5   And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,

    0031 Matt 2:6   And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

    0032 Matt 2:7   Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

    0033 Matt 2:8   And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.

  27. WISE MEN WORSHIP JESUS     Matthew 2:9-12*
  28. 0034 Matt 2:9   When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

    0035 Matt 2:10  When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

    0036 Matt 2:11  And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

    0037 Matt 2:12  And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

  29. FLIGHT FROM BETHLEHEM TO EGYPT     Matthew 2:13-15*
  30. 0038 Matt 2:13  And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

    0039 Matt 2:14  When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

    0040 Matt 2:15  And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

  31. HEROD SLAUGHTERS MALE CHILDREN     Matthew 2:16-18*
  32. 0041 Matt 2:16  Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.

    0042 Matt 2:17  Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,

    0043 Matt 2:18  In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

  33. CIRCUMCISION OF JESUS     Luke 2:21
  34. 1850 Luke 2:21  And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

  35. RETURN FROM EGYPT TO NAZARETH (AVOIDING JUDEA)    Matthew 2:19-23
  36. 0044 Matt 2:19  But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

    0045 Matt 2:20  Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child's life.

    0046 Matt 2:21  And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.

    0047 Matt 2:22  But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee:

    0048 Matt 2:23  And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

  37. TEMPLE PRESENTATION AND SACRIFICE (SIMEON AND ANNA TESTIFY)     Luke 2:22-38
  38. 1851 Luke 2:22  And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;

    1852 Luke 2:23  (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)

    1853 Luke 2:24  And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.

    1854 Luke 2:25  And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.

    1855 Luke 2:26  And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.

    1856 Luke 2:27  And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,

    1857 Luke 2:28  Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,

    1858 Luke 2:29  Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:

    1859 Luke 2:30  For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,

    1860 Luke 2:31  Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

    1861 Luke 2:32  A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.

    1862 Luke 2:33  And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.

    1863 Luke 2:34  And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;

    1864 Luke 2:35  (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

    1865 Luke 2:36  And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;

    1866 Luke 2:37  And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.

    1867 Luke 2:38  And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.

  39. RETURN FROM JERUSALEM TO NAZARETH     Luke 2:39*
  40. 1868 Luke 2:39  And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.

  41. TEMPLE INCIDENT AT AGE 12     Luke 2:40-50
  42. 1869 Luke 2:40  And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

    1870 Luke 2:41  Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.

    1871 Luke 2:42  And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.

    1872 Luke 2:43  And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.

    1873 Luke 2:44  But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.

    1874 Luke 2:45  And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.

    1875 Luke 2:46  And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.

    1876 Luke 2:47  And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.

    1877 Luke 2:48  And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.

    1878 Luke 2:49  And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?

    1879 Luke 2:50  And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.

  43. ADOLESCENCE TO EARLY MANHOOD     Luke 2:51-52
  44. 1880 Luke 2:51  And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.

    1881 Luke 2:52  And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

  45. THE MESSAGE OF JOHN THE BAPTIST     Matthew 3:1-12, Mark 1:1-8, Luke 3:1-18, John 1:6-8
  46. 0049 Matt 3:1   In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,

    0050 Matt 3:2   And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

    0051 Matt 3:3   For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

    0052 Matt 3:4   And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

    0053 Matt 3:5   Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,

    0054 Matt 3:6   And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

    0055 Matt 3:7   But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

    0056 Matt 3:8   Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

    0057 Matt 3:9   And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

    0058 Matt 3:10  And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    0059 Matt 3:11  I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

    0060 Matt 3:12  Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.


    1072 Mark 1:1   The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;

    1073 Mark 1:2   As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

    1074 Mark 1:3   The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

    1075 Mark 1:4   John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

    1076 Mark 1:5   And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.

    1077 Mark 1:6   And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;

    1078 Mark 1:7   And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.

    1079 Mark 1:8   I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.


    1882 Luke 3:1   Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,

    1883 Luke 3:2   Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.

    1884 Luke 3:3   And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;

    1885 Luke 3:4   As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

    1886 Luke 3:5   Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;

    1887 Luke 3:6   And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

    1888 Luke 3:7   Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

    1889 Luke 3:8   Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

    1890 Luke 3:9   And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    1891 Luke 3:10  And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?

    1892 Luke 3:11  He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.

    1893 Luke 3:12  Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?

    1894 Luke 3:13  And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.

    1895 Luke 3:14  And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

    1896 Luke 3:15  And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;

    1897 Luke 3:16  John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

    1898 Luke 3:17  Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.

    1899 Luke 3:18  And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the people.


    2906 John 1:6   There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

    2907 John 1:7   The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

    2908 John 1:8   He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

  47. BAPTISM OF JESUS     Matthew 3:13-17*, Mark 1:9-11, Luke 3:21-23a
  48. 0061 Matt 3:13  Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

    0062 Matt 3:14  But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

    0063 Matt 3:15  And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

    0064 Matt 3:16  And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

    0065 Matt 3:17  And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.


    1080 Mark 1:9   And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.

    1081 Mark 1:10  And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:

    1082 Mark 1:11  And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.


    1902 Luke 3:21  Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,

    1903 Luke 3:22  And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

    1904 Luke 3:23  And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, ...

  49. FASTING AND TEMPTATION OF JESUS     Matthew 4:1-11*, Mark 1:12-13*, Luke 4:1-13
  50. 0066 Matt 4:1   Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

    0067 Matt 4:2   And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

    0068 Matt 4:3   And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

    0069 Matt 4:4   But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

    0070 Matt 4:5   Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

    0071 Matt 4:6   And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

    0072 Matt 4:7   Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

    0073 Matt 4:8   Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

    0074 Matt 4:9   And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

    0075 Matt 4:10  Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

    0076 Matt 4:11  Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.


    1083 Mark 1:12  And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness.

    1084 Mark 1:13  And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.


    1920 Luke 4:1   And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,

    1921 Luke 4:2   Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.

    1922 Luke 4:3   And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.

    1923 Luke 4:4   And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

    1924 Luke 4:5   And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

    1925 Luke 4:6   And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

    1926 Luke 4:7   If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

    1927 Luke 4:8   And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

    1928 Luke 4:9   And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:

    1929 Luke 4:10  For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:

    1930 Luke 4:11  And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

    1931 Luke 4:12  And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

    1932 Luke 4:13  And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

  51. JOHN THE BAPTIST RESPONDS TO PHARISEES     John 1:15-28
  52. 2915 John 1:15  John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

    2916 John 1:16  And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

    2917 John 1:17  For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

    2918 John 1:18  No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

    2919 John 1:19  And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?

    2920 John 1:20  And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.

    2921 John 1:21  And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.

    2922 John 1:22  Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?

    2923 John 1:23  He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.

    2924 John 1:24  And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.

    2925 John 1:25  And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?

    2926 John 1:26  John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;

    2927 John 1:27  He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

    2928 John 1:28  These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

  53. NEXT DAY: JOHN TESTIFIES OF MIRACULOUS EVENTS AT BAPTISM     John 1:29-34*
  54. 2929 John 1:29  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

    2930 John 1:30  This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.

    2931 John 1:31  And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.

    2932 John 1:32  And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.

    2933 John 1:33  And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.

    2934 John 1:34  And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

  55. NEXT DAY: FOUR FISHERMEN CALLED (ANDREW, PETER, JAMES, JOHN)     Matthew 4:18-22, Mark 1:16-20, John 1:35-42*
  56. 0083 Matt 4:18  And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

    0084 Matt 4:19  And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

    0085 Matt 4:20  And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

    0086 Matt 4:21  And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.

    0087 Matt 4:22  And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.


    1087 Mark 1:16  Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

    1088 Mark 1:17  And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

    1089 Mark 1:18  And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.

    1090 Mark 1:19  And when he had gone a little further thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.

    1091 Mark 1:20  And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.


    2935 John 1:35  Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;

    2936 John 1:36  And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

    2937 John 1:37  And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

    2938 John 1:38  Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?

    2939 John 1:39  He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

    2940 John 1:40  One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.

    2941 John 1:41  He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.

    2942 John 1:42  And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.

  57. NEXT DAY: TWO MORE DISCIPLES CALLED (PHILIP, NATHANAEL)     John 1:43-51*
  58. 2943 John 1:43  The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.

    2944 John 1:44  Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.

    2945 John 1:45  Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

    2946 John 1:46  And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.

    2947 John 1:47  Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!

    2948 John 1:48  Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.

    2949 John 1:49  Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

    2950 John 1:50  Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.

    2951 John 1:51  And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

  59. TWO DAYS LATER: WATER INTO WINE     John 2:1-11*
  60. 2952 John 2:1   And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:

    2953 John 2:2   And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.

    2954 John 2:3   And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.

    2955 John 2:4   Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

    2956 John 2:5   His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

    2957 John 2:6   And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.

    2958 John 2:7   Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.

    2959 John 2:8   And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.

    2960 John 2:9   When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

    2961 John 2:10  And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

    2962 John 2:11  This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

  61. SHORT VISIT TO CAPERNAUM     John 2:12*
  62. 2963 John 2:12  After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.

  63. FIRST PASSOVER: TEMPLE CLEANSED     John 2:13-25
  64. 2964 John 2:13  And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,

    2965 John 2:14  And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:

    2966 John 2:15  And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;

    2967 John 2:16  And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

    2968 John 2:17  And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

    2969 John 2:18  Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?

    2970 John 2:19  Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

    2971 John 2:20  Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

    2972 John 2:21  But he spake of the temple of his body.

    2973 John 2:22  When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

    2974 John 2:23  Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.

    2975 John 2:24  But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,

    2976 John 2:25  And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.

  65. NICODEMUS VISITS JESUS     John 3:1-21
  66. 2977 John 3:1   There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

    2978 John 3:2   The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

    2979 John 3:3   Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    2980 John 3:4   Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

    2981 John 3:5   Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

    2982 John 3:6   That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

    2983 John 3:7   Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

    2984 John 3:8   The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

    2985 John 3:9   Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

    2986 John 3:10  Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

    2987 John 3:11  Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

    2988 John 3:12  If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

    2989 John 3:13  And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

    2990 John 3:14  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

    2991 John 3:15  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

    2992 John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    2993 John 3:17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    2994 John 3:18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    2995 John 3:19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    2996 John 3:20  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

    2997 John 3:21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

  67. DISCIPLES BEGIN BAPTIZING     John 3:22*
  68. 2998 John 3:22  After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.

  69. JOHN THE BAPTIST TESTIFIES OF JESUS' INCREASE     John 3:23-36
  70. 2999 John 3:23  And John also was baptizing in Ænon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.

    3000 John 3:24  For John was not yet cast into prison.

    3001 John 3:25  Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.

    3002 John 3:26  And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.

    3003 John 3:27  John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.

    3004 John 3:28  Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.

    3005 John 3:29  He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

    3006 John 3:30  He must increase, but I must decrease.

    3007 John 3:31  He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

    3008 John 3:32  And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.

    3009 John 3:33  He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

    3010 John 3:34  For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

    3011 John 3:35  The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

    3012 John 3:36  He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

  71. JOHN THE BAPTIST IMPRISONED     Matthew 14:3-5, Mark 6:17-20, Luke 3:19-20
  72. 0456 Matt 14:3  For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.

    0457 Matt 14:4  For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

    0458 Matt 14:5  And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.


    1280 Mark 6:17  For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her.

    1281 Mark 6:18  For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.

    1282 Mark 6:19  Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:

    1283 Mark 6:20  For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.


    1900 Luke 3:19  But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,

    1901 Luke 3:20  Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.

  73. FROM JUDEA TO GALILEE VIA SAMARIA     Matthew 4:12*, Mark 1:14*, John 4:1-4
  74. 0077 Matt 4:12  Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;


    1085 Mark 1:14  Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,


    3013 John 4:1   When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,

    3014 John 4:2   (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)

    3015 John 4:3   He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.

    3016 John 4:4   And he must needs go through Samaria.

  75. SAMARITAN WOMAN AT JACOB'S WELL     John 4:5-42*
  76. 3017 John 4:5   Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

    3018 John 4:6   Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.

    3019 John 4:7   There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

    3020 John 4:8   (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

    3021 John 4:9   Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

    3022 John 4:10  Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

    3023 John 4:11  The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

    3024 John 4:12  Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

    3025 John 4:13  Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

    3026 John 4:14  But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

    3027 John 4:15  The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

    3028 John 4:16  Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

    3029 John 4:17  The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:

    3030 John 4:18  For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

    3031 John 4:19  The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.

    3032 John 4:20  Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

    3033 John 4:21  Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

    3034 John 4:22  Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

    3035 John 4:23  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

    3036 John 4:24  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

    3037 John 4:25  The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.

    3038 John 4:26  Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

    3039 John 4:27  And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?

    3040 John 4:28  The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,

    3041 John 4:29  Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

    3042 John 4:30  Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.

    3043 John 4:31  In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.

    3044 John 4:32  But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

    3045 John 4:33  Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?

    3046 John 4:34  Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

    3047 John 4:35  Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

    3048 John 4:36  And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

    3049 John 4:37  And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

    3050 John 4:38  I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

    3051 John 4:39  And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.

    3052 John 4:40  So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.

    3053 John 4:41  And many more believed because of his own word;

    3054 John 4:42  And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

  77. FAME IN GALILEE     Mark 1:15, Luke 4:14-15, John 4:43-45*
  78. 1086 Mark 1:15  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.


    1933 Luke 4:14  And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.

    1934 Luke 4:15  And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.


    3055 John 4:43  Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.

    3056 John 4:44  For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.

    3057 John 4:45  Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.

  79. NOBLEMAN'S SON HEALED     John 4:46-54
  80. 3058 John 4:46  So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.

    3059 John 4:47  When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.

    3060 John 4:48  Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.

    3061 John 4:49  The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.

    3062 John 4:50  Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.

    3063 John 4:51  And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.

    3064 John 4:52  Then inquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.

    3065 John 4:53  So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.

    3066 John 4:54  This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.

  81. FIRST REJECTION AT NAZARETH: JUBILEE PROCLAIMED     Luke 4:16-30
  82. 1935 Luke 4:16  And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

    1936 Luke 4:17  And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,

    1937 Luke 4:18  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

    1938 Luke 4:19  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

    1939 Luke 4:20  And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

    1940 Luke 4:21  And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

    1941 Luke 4:22  And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?

    1942 Luke 4:23  And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country.

    1943 Luke 4:24  And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.

    1944 Luke 4:25  But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;

    1945 Luke 4:26  But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.

    1946 Luke 4:27  And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.

    1947 Luke 4:28  And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,

    1948 Luke 4:29  And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong.

    1949 Luke 4:30  But he passing through the midst of them went his way,

  83. FROM NAZARETH TO CAPERNAUM     Matthew 4:13-17*, Mark 1:21-22, Luke 4:31-32
  84. 0078 Matt 4:13  And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:

    0079 Matt 4:14  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,

    0080 Matt 4:15  The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;

    0081 Matt 4:16  The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

    0082 Matt 4:17  From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.


    1092 Mark 1:21  And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.

    1093 Mark 1:22  And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.


    1950 Luke 4:31  And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days.

    1951 Luke 4:32  And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.

  85. UNCLEAN SPIRIT CAST OUT     Mark 1:23-28, Luke 4:33-37
  86. 1094 Mark 1:23  And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,

    1095 Mark 1:24  Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.

    1096 Mark 1:25  And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.

    1097 Mark 1:26  And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.

    1098 Mark 1:27  And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

    1099 Mark 1:28  And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.


    1952 Luke 4:33  And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice,

    1953 Luke 4:34  Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God.

    1954 Luke 4:35  And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.

    1955 Luke 4:36  And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.

    1956 Luke 4:37  And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.

  87. SAME DAY: PETER'S WIFE'S MOTHER HEALED     Matthew 8:14-15, Mark 1:29-31*, Luke 4:38-39*
  88. 0215 Matt 8:14  And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.

    0216 Matt 8:15  And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.


    1100 Mark 1:29  And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

    1101 Mark 1:30  But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.

    1102 Mark 1:31  And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.


    1957 Luke 4:38  And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her.

    1958 Luke 4:39  And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them.

  89. SAME DAY: SUNSET MIRACLES     Matthew 8:16-17*, Mark 1:32-34*, Luke 4:40-41*
  90. 0217 Matt 8:16  When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:

    0218 Matt 8:17  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.


    1103 Mark 1:32  And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.

    1104 Mark 1:33  And all the city was gathered together at the door.

    1105 Mark 1:34  And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.


    1959 Luke 4:40  Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.

    1960 Luke 4:41  And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.

  91. NEXT MORNING: FIRST PRAYER WITHDRAWAL     Mark 1:35-38*, Luke 4:42-43*
  92. 1106 Mark 1:35  And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.

    1107 Mark 1:36  And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.

    1108 Mark 1:37  And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee.

    1109 Mark 1:38  And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.


    1961 Luke 4:42  And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them.

    1962 Luke 4:43  And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.

  93. FIRST TOUR OF GALILEE     Matthew 4:23-25, Mark 1:39, Luke 4:44
  94. 0088 Matt 4:23  And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

    0089 Matt 4:24  And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

    0090 Matt 4:25  And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.


    1110 Mark 1:39  And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.


    1963 Luke 4:44  And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.

  95. MIRACULOUS DRAUGHT OF FISH     Luke 5:1-11
  96. 1964 Luke 5:1   And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,

    1965 Luke 5:2   And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.

    1966 Luke 5:3   And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.

    1967 Luke 5:4   Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.

    1968 Luke 5:5   And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

    1969 Luke 5:6   And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.

    1970 Luke 5:7   And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.

    1971 Luke 5:8   When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.

    1972 Luke 5:9   For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:

    1973 Luke 5:10  And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.

    1974 Luke 5:11  And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.

  97. PALSY HEALED     Matthew 9:1-8, Mark 2:1-12, Luke 5:17-26
  98. 0236 Matt 9:1   And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.

    0237 Matt 9:2   And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

    0238 Matt 9:3   And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.

    0239 Matt 9:4   And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?

    0240 Matt 9:5   For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?

    0241 Matt 9:6   But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.

    0242 Matt 9:7   And he arose, and departed to his house.

    0243 Matt 9:8   But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.


    1117 Mark 2:1   And again he entered into Capernaum, after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.

    1118 Mark 2:2   And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.

    1119 Mark 2:3   And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.

    1120 Mark 2:4   And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.

    1121 Mark 2:5   When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

    1122 Mark 2:6   But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,

    1123 Mark 2:7   Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?

    1124 Mark 2:8   And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?

    1125 Mark 2:9   Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?

    1126 Mark 2:10  But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)

    1127 Mark 2:11  I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.

    1128 Mark 2:12  And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.


    1980 Luke 5:17  And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.

    1981 Luke 5:18  And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.

    1982 Luke 5:19  And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.

    1983 Luke 5:20  And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

    1984 Luke 5:21  And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?

    1985 Luke 5:22  But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?

    1986 Luke 5:23  Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?

    1987 Luke 5:24  But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.

    1988 Luke 5:25  And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God.

    1989 Luke 5:26  And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.

  99. SEASIDE TEACHINGS     Mark 2:13
  100. 1129 Mark 2:13  And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught them.

  101. MATTHEW (LEVI) CALLED     Matthew 9:9*, Mark 2:14, Luke 5:27-28*
  102. 0244 Matt 9:9   And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.


    1130 Mark 2:14  And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.


    1990 Luke 5:27  And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me.

    1991 Luke 5:28  And he left all, rose up, and followed him.

  103. ANSWERING CRITICS AT MATTHEW'S FEAST     Matthew 9:10-13, Mark 2:15-17, Luke 5:29-32
  104. 0245 Matt 9:10  And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.

    0246 Matt 9:11  And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?

    0247 Matt 9:12  But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

    0248 Matt 9:13  But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.


    1131 Mark 2:15  And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.

    1132 Mark 2:16  And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

    1133 Mark 2:17  When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.


    1992 Luke 5:29  And Levi made him a great feast in his own house: and there was a great company of publicans and of others that sat down with them.

    1993 Luke 5:30  But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?

    1994 Luke 5:31  And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.

    1995 Luke 5:32  I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

  105. PARABLE OF THE WINESKINS     Matthew 9:14-17*, Mark 2:18-22, Luke 5:33-39
  106. 0249 Matt 9:14  Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?

    0250 Matt 9:15  And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.

    0251 Matt 9:16  No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.

    0252 Matt 9:17  Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.


    1134 Mark 2:18  And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?

    1135 Mark 2:19  And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.

    1136 Mark 2:20  But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

    1137 Mark 2:21  No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse.

    1138 Mark 2:22  And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.


    1996 Luke 5:33  And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink?

    1997 Luke 5:34  And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them?

    1998 Luke 5:35  But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

    1999 Luke 5:36  And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.

    2000 Luke 5:37  And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.

    2001 Luke 5:38  But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.

    2002 Luke 5:39  No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.

  107. JARIUS PLEADS FOR HIS DEAD DAUGHTER     Matthew 9:18-19*, Mark 5:21-24, Luke 8:40-42
  108. 0253 Matt 9:18  While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.

    0254 Matt 9:19  And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.


    1241 Mark 5:21  And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.

    1242 Mark 5:22  And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,

    1243 Mark 5:23  And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.

    1244 Mark 5:24  And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.


    2141 Luke 8:40  And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him.

    2142 Luke 8:41  And, behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and besought him that he would come into his house:

    2143 Luke 8:42  For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.

  109. WOMAN WITH 12-YEAR ISSUE OF BLOOD     Matthew 9:20-22*, Mark 5:25-34, Luke 8:43-48
  110. 0255 Matt 9:20  And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:

    0256 Matt 9:21  For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.

    0257 Matt 9:22  But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.


    1245 Mark 5:25  And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,

    1246 Mark 5:26  And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,

    1247 Mark 5:27  When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.

    1248 Mark 5:28  For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.

    1249 Mark 5:29  And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

    1250 Mark 5:30  And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

    1251 Mark 5:31  And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

    1252 Mark 5:32  And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.

    1253 Mark 5:33  But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.

    1254 Mark 5:34  And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.


    2144 Luke 8:43  And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,

    2145 Luke 8:44  Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

    2146 Luke 8:45  And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

    2147 Luke 8:46  And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

    2148 Luke 8:47  And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.

    2149 Luke 8:48  And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.

  111. JARIUS' 12-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER RAISED     Matthew 9:23-26, Mark 5:35-43*, Luke 8:49-56*
  112. 0258 Matt 9:23  And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,

    0259 Matt 9:24  He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.

    0260 Matt 9:25  But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.

    0261 Matt 9:26  And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.


    1255 Mark 5:35  While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?

    1256 Mark 5:36  As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

    1257 Mark 5:37  And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.

    1258 Mark 5:38  And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.

    1259 Mark 5:39  And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.

    1260 Mark 5:40  And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.

    1261 Mark 5:41  And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.

    1262 Mark 5:42  And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.

    1263 Mark 5:43  And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.


    2150 Luke 8:49  While he yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.

    2151 Luke 8:50  But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.

    2152 Luke 8:51  And when he came into the house, he suffered no man to go in, save Peter, and James, and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden.

    2153 Luke 8:52  And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth.

    2154 Luke 8:53  And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.

    2155 Luke 8:54  And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise.

    2156 Luke 8:55  And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat.

    2157 Luke 8:56  And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.

  113. TWO BLIND MEN HEALED     Matthew 9:27-31*
  114. 0262 Matt 9:27  And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us.

    0263 Matt 9:28  And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.

    0264 Matt 9:29  Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

    0265 Matt 9:30  And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.

    0266 Matt 9:31  But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.

  115. DUMB DEMONIAC     Matthew 9:32-34*
  116. 0267 Matt 9:32  As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a devil.

    0268 Matt 9:33  And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.

    0269 Matt 9:34  But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils.

  117. HARVEST PLENTEOUS, LABOURERS FEW     Matthew 9:35-36
  118. 0270 Matt 9:35  And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

    0271 Matt 9:36  But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.

    0272 Matt 9:37  Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;

    0273 Matt 9:38  Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

  119. SECOND PASSOVER     John 5:1
  120. 3067 John 5:1   After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

  121. SABBATH HEALING AT POOL OF BETHESDA     John 5:2-15
  122. 3068 John 5:2   Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.

    3069 John 5:3   In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.

    3070 John 5:4   For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

    3071 John 5:5   And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

    3072 John 5:6   When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

    3073 John 5:7   The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

    3074 John 5:8   Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.

    3075 John 5:9   And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

    3076 John 5:10  The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.

    3077 John 5:11  He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.

    3078 John 5:12  Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?

    3079 John 5:13  And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.

    3080 John 5:14  Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

    3081 John 5:15  The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.

  123. DEITY AFFIRMED     John 5:16-47
  124. 3082 John 5:16  And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.

    3083 John 5:17  But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

    3084 John 5:18  Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

    3085 John 5:19  Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

    3086 John 5:20  For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

    3087 John 5:21  For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

    3088 John 5:22  For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

    3089 John 5:23  That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

    3090 John 5:24  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

    3091 John 5:25  Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

    3092 John 5:26  For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

    3093 John 5:27  And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

    3094 John 5:28  Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

    3095 John 5:29  And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

    3096 John 5:30  I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

    3097 John 5:31  If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

    3098 John 5:32  There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.

    3099 John 5:33  Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.

    3100 John 5:34  But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.

    3101 John 5:35  He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

    3102 John 5:36  But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

    3103 John 5:37  And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

    3104 John 5:38  And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

    3105 John 5:39  Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

    3106 John 5:40  And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

    3107 John 5:41  I receive not honour from men.

    3108 John 5:42  But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.

    3109 John 5:43  I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

    3110 John 5:44  How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?

    3111 John 5:45  Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.

    3112 John 5:46  For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.

    3113 John 5:47  But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

  125. FINAL FIVE DISCIPLES NAMED, COMPLETING THE TWELVE     Matthew 10:2-4, Mark 3:13-19, Luke 6:12-16
  126. 0275 Matt 10:2  Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;

    0276 Matt 10:3  Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;

    0277 Matt 10:4  Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.


    1157 Mark 3:13  And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him.

    1158 Mark 3:14  And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,

    1159 Mark 3:15  And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

    1160 Mark 3:16  And Simon he surnamed Peter;

    1161 Mark 3:17  And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:

    1162 Mark 3:18  And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,

    1163 Mark 3:19  And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.


    2014 Luke 6:12  And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

    2015 Luke 6:13  And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;

    2016 Luke 6:14  Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,

    2017 Luke 6:15  Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes,

    2018 Luke 6:16  And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.

  127. MIRACLES ON THE PLAIN     Matthew 10:1*, Luke 6:17-19*
  128. 0274 Matt 10:1  And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.


    2019 Luke 6:17  And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;

    2020 Luke 6:18  And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.

    2021 Luke 6:19  And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

  129. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 1: THE BEATITUDES     Matthew 5:1-12, Luke 6:20-26
  130. 0091 Matt 5:1   And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

    0092 Matt 5:2   And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

    0093 Matt 5:3   Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    0094 Matt 5:4   Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

    0095 Matt 5:5   Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

    0096 Matt 5:6   Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

    0097 Matt 5:7   Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

    0098 Matt 5:8   Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

    0099 Matt 5:9   Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

    0100 Matt 5:10  Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    0101 Matt 5:11  Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

    0102 Matt 5:12  Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.


    2022 Luke 6:20  And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.

    2023 Luke 6:21  Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.

    2024 Luke 6:22  Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

    2025 Luke 6:23  Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

    2026 Luke 6:24  But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.

    2027 Luke 6:25  Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.

    2028 Luke 6:26  Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

  131. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 2: THE SALT OF THE EARTH     Matthew 5:13
  132. 0103 Matt 5:13  Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

  133. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 3: THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD     Matthew 5:14-16, [Luke 11:33]
  134. 0104 Matt 5:14  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

    0105 Matt 5:15  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

    0106 Matt 5:16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.


    2294 Luke 11:33 [No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.]

  135. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 4: CHRIST TO FULFIL THE LAW     Matthew 5:17-20
  136. 0107 Matt 5:17  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

    0108 Matt 5:18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

    0109 Matt 5:19  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    0110 Matt 5:20  For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

  137. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 5: ANGER AND RECONCILIATION     Matthew 5:21-26
  138. 0111 Matt 5:21  Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

    0112 Matt 5:22  But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

    0113 Matt 5:23  Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;

    0114 Matt 5:24  Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

    0115 Matt 5:25  Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

    0116 Matt 5:26  Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

  139. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 6: ADULTERY     Matthew 5:27-30
  140. 0117 Matt 5:27  Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

    0118 Matt 5:28  But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

    0119 Matt 5:29  And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

    0120 Matt 5:30  And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

  141. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 7: DIVORCE     Matthew 5:31-32
  142. 0121 Matt 5:31  It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

    0122 Matt 5:32  But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

  143. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 8: SWEARING OF OATHS     Matthew 5:33-37
  144. 0123 Matt 5:33  Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

    0124 Matt 5:34  But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:

    0125 Matt 5:35  Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

    0126 Matt 5:36  Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

    0127 Matt 5:37  But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

  145. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 9: LOVE YOUR ENEMIES     Matthew 5:38-48, Luke 6:27-36
  146. 0128 Matt 5:38  Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

    0129 Matt 5:39  But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

    0130 Matt 5:40  And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.

    0131 Matt 5:41  And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

    0132 Matt 5:42  Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

    0133 Matt 5:43  Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

    0134 Matt 5:44  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

    0135 Matt 5:45  That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

    0136 Matt 5:46  For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

    0137 Matt 5:47  And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

    0138 Matt 5:48  Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.


    2029 Luke 6:27  But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,

    2030 Luke 6:28  Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

    2031 Luke 6:29  And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.

    2032 Luke 6:30  Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.

    2033 Luke 6:31  And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

    2034 Luke 6:32  For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.

    2035 Luke 6:33  And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.

    2036 Luke 6:34  And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

    2037 Luke 6:35  But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

    2038 Luke 6:36  Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

  147. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 10: ALMSGIVING     Matthew 6:1-4
  148. 0139 Matt 6:1   Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

    0140 Matt 6:2   Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

    0141 Matt 6:3   But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

    0142 Matt 6:4   That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

  149. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 11: THE LORD'S PRAYER     Matthew 6:5-15, [Mark 11:25-26], [Luke 11:2-4]
  150. 0143 Matt 6:5   And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

    0144 Matt 6:6   But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

    0145 Matt 6:7   But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

    0146 Matt 6:8   Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

    0147 Matt 6:9   After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

    0148 Matt 6:10  Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

    0149 Matt 6:11  Give us this day our daily bread.

    0150 Matt 6:12  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

    0151 Matt 6:13  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

    0152 Matt 6:14  For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

    0153 Matt 6:15  But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.


    1521 Mark 11:25 [And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

    1522 Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.]


    2263 Luke 11:2  [And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

    2264 Luke 11:3  Give us day by day our daily bread.

    2265 Luke 11:4  And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.]

  151. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 12: FASTING     Matthew 6:16-18
  152. 0154 Matt 6:16  Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

    0155 Matt 6:17  But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;

    0156 Matt 6:18  That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

  153. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 13: TREASURES IN HEAVEN     Matthew 6:19-21
  154. 0157 Matt 6:19  Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

    0158 Matt 6:20  But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

    0159 Matt 6:21  For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

  155. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 14: THE EYE     Matthew 6:22-23, [Luke 11:34-36]
  156. 0160 Matt 6:22  The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

    0161 Matt 6:23  But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!


    2295 Luke 11:34 [The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

    2296 Luke 11:35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.

    2297 Luke 11:36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.]

  157. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 15: TAKE NO THOUGHT (GOD AND MAMMON)     Matthew 6:24-34, [Luke 12:22-32]
  158. 0162 Matt 6:24  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

    0163 Matt 6:25  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

    0164 Matt 6:26  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

    0165 Matt 6:27  Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

    0166 Matt 6:28  And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

    0167 Matt 6:29  And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

    0168 Matt 6:30  Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

    0169 Matt 6:31  Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

    0170 Matt 6:32  (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

    0171 Matt 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    0172 Matt 6:34  Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.


    2337 Luke 12:22 [And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.

    2338 Luke 12:23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

    2339 Luke 12:24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

    2340 Luke 12:25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

    2341 Luke 12:26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

    2342 Luke 12:27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

    2343 Luke 12:28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?

    2344 Luke 12:29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

    2345 Luke 12:30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

    2346 Luke 12:31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    2347 Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.]

  159. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 16: JUDGING OTHERS HYPOCRITICALLY     Matthew 7:1-5, Luke 6:37-42
  160. 0173 Matt 7:1   Judge not, that ye be not judged.

    0174 Matt 7:2   For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

    0175 Matt 7:3   And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

    0176 Matt 7:4   Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

    0177 Matt 7:5   Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.


    2039 Luke 6:37  Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

    2040 Luke 6:38  Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

    2041 Luke 6:39  And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?

    2042 Luke 6:40  The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.

    2043 Luke 6:41  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

    2044 Luke 6:42  Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.

  161. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 17: PEARLS BEFORE SWINE     Matthew 7:6
  162. 0178 Matt 7:6   Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

  163. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 18: ASK, SEEK, KNOCK     Matthew 7:7-11
  164. 0179 Matt 7:7   Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

    0180 Matt 7:8   For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

    0181 Matt 7:9   Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

    0182 Matt 7:10  Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

    0183 Matt 7:11  If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

  165. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 19: THE GOLDEN RULE     Matthew 7:12
  166. 0184 Matt 7:12  Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

  167. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 20: THE STRAIT GATE     Matthew 7:13-14, [Luke 13:23-24]
  168. 0185 Matt 7:13  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

    0186 Matt 7:14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.


    2397 Luke 13:23 [Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,

    2398 Luke 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.]

  169. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 21: A TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS FRUIT     Matthew 7:15-20, Luke 6:43-45
  170. 0187 Matt 7:15  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    0188 Matt 7:16  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    0189 Matt 7:17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    0190 Matt 7:18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    0191 Matt 7:19  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    0192 Matt 7:20  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.


    2045 Luke 6:43  For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    2046 Luke 6:44  For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.

    2047 Luke 6:45  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

  171. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 22: DO THE WILL OF MY FATHER     Matthew 7:21-23, Luke 6:46
  172. 0193 Matt 7:21  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

    0194 Matt 7:22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

    0195 Matt 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.


    2048 Luke 6:46  And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

  173. SERMON ON THE MOUNT 23: HOUSE BUILT ON A ROCK     Matthew 7:24-27, Luke 6:47-49
  174. 0196 Matt 7:24  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

    0197 Matt 7:25  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

    0198 Matt 7:26  And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

    0199 Matt 7:27  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.


    2049 Luke 6:47  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:

    2050 Luke 6:48  He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

    2051 Luke 6:49  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

  175. LEPER HEALED     Matthew 7:28-8:4*, Mark 1:40-45, Luke 5:12-16
  176. 0200 Matt 7:28  And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:

    0201 Matt 7:29  For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

    0202 Matt 8:1   When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.

    0203 Matt 8:2   And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

    0204 Matt 8:3   And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

    0205 Matt 8:4   And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.


    1111 Mark 1:40  And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

    1112 Mark 1:41  And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.

    1113 Mark 1:42  And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.

    1114 Mark 1:43  And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;

    1115 Mark 1:44  And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

    1116 Mark 1:45  But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.


    1975 Luke 5:12  And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

    1976 Luke 5:13  And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.

    1977 Luke 5:14  And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

    1978 Luke 5:15  But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.

    1979 Luke 5:16  And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.

  177. CENTURION'S SERVANT HEALED     Matthew 8:5-13, Luke 7:1-10*
  178. 0206 Matt 8:5   And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,

    0207 Matt 8:6   And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

    0208 Matt 8:7   And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

    0209 Matt 8:8   The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

    0210 Matt 8:9   For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

    0211 Matt 8:10  When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

    0212 Matt 8:11  And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

    0213 Matt 8:12  But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    0214 Matt 8:13  And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.


    2052 Luke 7:1   Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum.

    2053 Luke 7:2   And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die.

    2054 Luke 7:3   And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.

    2055 Luke 7:4   And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:

    2056 Luke 7:5   For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.

    2057 Luke 7:6   Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:

    2058 Luke 7:7   Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.

    2059 Luke 7:8   For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

    2060 Luke 7:9   When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

    2061 Luke 7:10  And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.

  179. NEXT DAY: WIDOW'S SON RAISED     Luke 7:11-17*
  180. 2062 Luke 7:11  And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.

    2063 Luke 7:12  Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.

    2064 Luke 7:13  And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.

    2065 Luke 7:14  And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.

    2066 Luke 7:15  And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.

    2067 Luke 7:16  And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.

    2068 Luke 7:17  And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.

  181. RESPONSE TO JOHN THE BAPTIST'S INQUIRY FROM PRISON     Matthew 11:2-19, Luke 7:18-35*
  182. 0317 Matt 11:2  Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,

    0318 Matt 11:3  And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?

    0319 Matt 11:4  Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:

    0320 Matt 11:5  The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

    0321 Matt 11:6  And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

    0322 Matt 11:7  And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

    0323 Matt 11:8  But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.

    0324 Matt 11:9  But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.

    0325 Matt 11:10 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

    0326 Matt 11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

    0327 Matt 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

    0328 Matt 11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

    0329 Matt 11:14 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.

    0330 Matt 11:15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

    0331 Matt 11:16 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,

    0332 Matt 11:17 And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

    0333 Matt 11:18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.

    0334 Matt 11:19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.


    2069 Luke 7:18  And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things.

    2070 Luke 7:19  And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?

    2071 Luke 7:20  When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?

    2072 Luke 7:21  And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.

    2073 Luke 7:22  Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

    2074 Luke 7:23  And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

    2075 Luke 7:24  And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?

    2076 Luke 7:25  But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings' courts.

    2077 Luke 7:26  But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.

    2078 Luke 7:27  This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

    2079 Luke 7:28  For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.

    2080 Luke 7:29  And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.

    2081 Luke 7:30  But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him.

    2082 Luke 7:31  And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like?

    2083 Luke 7:32  They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept.

    2084 Luke 7:33  For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.

    2085 Luke 7:34  The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!

    2086 Luke 7:35  But wisdom is justified of all her children.

  183. THREE CITIES UPBRAIDED     Matthew 11:20-24*
  184. 0335 Matt 11:20 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:

    0336 Matt 11:21 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

    0337 Matt 11:22 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.

    0338 Matt 11:23 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.

    0339 Matt 11:24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.

  185. COME UNTO ME     Matthew 11:25-30*
  186. 0340 Matt 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

    0341 Matt 11:26 Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.

    0342 Matt 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

    0343 Matt 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

    0344 Matt 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

    0345 Matt 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

  187. SABBATH PLUCKING OF CORN     Matthew 12:1-8*, Mark 2:23-28, Luke 6:1-5
  188. 0346 Matt 12:1  At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat.

    0347 Matt 12:2  But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day.

    0348 Matt 12:3  But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;

    0349 Matt 12:4  How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?

    0350 Matt 12:5  Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?

    0351 Matt 12:6  But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.

    0352 Matt 12:7  But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

    0353 Matt 12:8  For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.


    1139 Mark 2:23  And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.

    1140 Mark 2:24  And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful?

    1141 Mark 2:25  And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him?

    1142 Mark 2:26  How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?

    1143 Mark 2:27  And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

    1144 Mark 2:28  Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.


    2003 Luke 6:1   And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.

    2004 Luke 6:2   And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?

    2005 Luke 6:3   And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him;

    2006 Luke 6:4   How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?

    2007 Luke 6:5   And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

  189. SABBATH HEALING OF WITHERED HAND     Matthew 12:9-14*, Mark 3:1-6, Luke 6:6-11
  190. 0354 Matt 12:9  And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:

    0355 Matt 12:10 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.

    0356 Matt 12:11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?

    0357 Matt 12:12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

    0358 Matt 12:13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.

    0359 Matt 12:14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.


    1145 Mark 3:1   And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.

    1146 Mark 3:2   And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.

    1147 Mark 3:3   And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.

    1148 Mark 3:4   And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.

    1149 Mark 3:5   And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

    1150 Mark 3:6   And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.


    2008 Luke 6:6   And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.

    2009 Luke 6:7   And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.

    2010 Luke 6:8   But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.

    2011 Luke 6:9   Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?

    2012 Luke 6:10  And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

    2013 Luke 6:11  And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.

  191. SEASIDE HEALINGS     Matthew 12:15-21*, Mark 3:7-12*
  192. 0360 Matt 12:15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;

    0361 Matt 12:16 And charged them that they should not make him known:

    0362 Matt 12:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,

    0363 Matt 12:18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.

    0364 Matt 12:19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.

    0365 Matt 12:20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.

    0366 Matt 12:21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.


    1151 Mark 3:7   But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,

    1152 Mark 3:8   And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.

    1153 Mark 3:9   And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.

    1154 Mark 3:10  For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.

    1155 Mark 3:11  And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.

    1156 Mark 3:12  And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.

  193. SINFUL WOMAN ANNOINTS JESUS' FEET (PARABLE OF THE CREDITOR)     Luke 7:36-50
  194. 2087 Luke 7:36  And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.

    2088 Luke 7:37  And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,

    2089 Luke 7:38  And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.

    2090 Luke 7:39  Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.

    2091 Luke 7:40  And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.

    2092 Luke 7:41  There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.

    2093 Luke 7:42  And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?

    2094 Luke 7:43  Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.

    2095 Luke 7:44  And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.

    2096 Luke 7:45  Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.

    2097 Luke 7:46  My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.

    2098 Luke 7:47  Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.

    2099 Luke 7:48  And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.

    2100 Luke 7:49  And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?

    2101 Luke 7:50  And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

  195. SECOND TOUR OF GALILEE     Luke 8:1-3*
  196. 2102 Luke 8:1   And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him,

    2103 Luke 8:2   And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,

    2104 Luke 8:3   And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.

  197. BLIND AND DUMB DEMONIAC     Matthew 12:22-23*, Luke 11:14
  198. 0367 Matt 12:22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.

    0368 Matt 12:23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?


    2275 Luke 11:14 And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.

  199. BLASPHEMY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT     Matthew 12:24-37*, Mark 3:20-30, Luke 11:15-23
  200. 0369 Matt 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

    0370 Matt 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

    0371 Matt 12:26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

    0372 Matt 12:27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.

    0373 Matt 12:28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

    0374 Matt 12:29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

    0375 Matt 12:30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

    0376 Matt 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

    0377 Matt 12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

    0378 Matt 12:33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

    0379 Matt 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

    0380 Matt 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

    0381 Matt 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

    0382 Matt 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.


    1164 Mark 3:20  And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.

    1165 Mark 3:21  And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.

    1166 Mark 3:22  And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.

    1167 Mark 3:23  And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?

    1168 Mark 3:24  And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

    1169 Mark 3:25  And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

    1170 Mark 3:26  And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

    1171 Mark 3:27  No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

    1172 Mark 3:28  Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:

    1173 Mark 3:29  But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

    1174 Mark 3:30  Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.


    2276 Luke 11:15 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils.

    2277 Luke 11:16 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.

    2278 Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.

    2279 Luke 11:18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.

    2280 Luke 11:19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.

    2281 Luke 11:20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.

    2282 Luke 11:21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

    2283 Luke 11:22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

    2284 Luke 11:23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

  201. THE SIGN OF JONAH     Matthew 12:38-42*, [Luke 11:29-32]
  202. 0383 Matt 12:38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.

    0384 Matt 12:39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

    0385 Matt 12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

    0386 Matt 12:41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

    0387 Matt 12:42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.


    2290 Luke 11:29 [And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

    2291 Luke 11:30 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.

    2292 Luke 11:31 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

    2293 Luke 11:32 The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.]

  203. UNCLEAN SPIRIT SHALL RETURN WITH SEVEN MORE     Matthew 12:43-45, Luke 11:24-26
  204. 0388 Matt 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

    0389 Matt 12:44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

    0390 Matt 12:45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.


    2285 Luke 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.

    2286 Luke 11:25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.

    2287 Luke 11:26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

  205. BLESSED ARE THEY WHO HEAR AND KEEP GOD'S WORD     Luke 11:27-28*
  206. 2288 Luke 11:27 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.

    2289 Luke 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

  207. FAMILY INQUIRY 1     Matthew 12:46-50*, Mark 3:31-35*
  208. 0391 Matt 12:46 While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

    0392 Matt 12:47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

    0393 Matt 12:48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?

    0394 Matt 12:49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

    0395 Matt 12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.


    1175 Mark 3:31  There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him.

    1176 Mark 3:32  And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.

    1177 Mark 3:33  And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?

    1178 Mark 3:34  And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

    1179 Mark 3:35  For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.

  209. SEASIDE PARABLE 1: THE SOWER (SAME DAY)     Matthew 13:1-9*, Mark 4:1-9, Luke 8:4-8
  210. 0396 Matt 13:1  The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.

    0397 Matt 13:2  And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.

    0398 Matt 13:3  And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

    0399 Matt 13:4  And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:

    0400 Matt 13:5  Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:

    0401 Matt 13:6  And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.

    0402 Matt 13:7  And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:

    0403 Matt 13:8  But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

    0404 Matt 13:9  Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.


    1180 Mark 4:1   And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.

    1181 Mark 4:2   And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,

    1182 Mark 4:3   Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:

    1183 Mark 4:4   And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.

    1184 Mark 4:5   And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:

    1185 Mark 4:6   But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.

    1186 Mark 4:7   And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

    1187 Mark 4:8   And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.

    1188 Mark 4:9   And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.


    2105 Luke 8:4   And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable:

    2106 Luke 8:5   A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.

    2107 Luke 8:6   And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.

    2108 Luke 8:7   And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.

    2109 Luke 8:8   And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

  211. JESUS EXPLAINS PURPOSE OF PARABLES     Matthew 13:10-17, Mark 4:10-12, Luke 8:9-10
  212. 0405 Matt 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

    0406 Matt 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

    0407 Matt 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

    0408 Matt 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

    0409 Matt 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

    0410 Matt 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

    0411 Matt 13:16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

    0412 Matt 13:17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.


    1189 Mark 4:10  And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.

    1190 Mark 4:11  And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

    1191 Mark 4:12  That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.


    2110 Luke 8:9   And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?

    2111 Luke 8:10  And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

  213. SEASIDE PARABLE 1E: THE SOWER EXPLAINED     Matthew 13:18-23, Mark 4:13-20, Luke 8:11-15
  214. 0413 Matt 13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

    0414 Matt 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

    0415 Matt 13:20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

    0416 Matt 13:21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

    0417 Matt 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

    0418 Matt 13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.


    1192 Mark 4:13  And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?

    1193 Mark 4:14  The sower soweth the word.

    1194 Mark 4:15  And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

    1195 Mark 4:16  And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;

    1196 Mark 4:17  And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.

    1197 Mark 4:18  And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,

    1198 Mark 4:19  And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

    1199 Mark 4:20  And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.


    2112 Luke 8:11  Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

    2113 Luke 8:12  Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.

    2114 Luke 8:13  They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.

    2115 Luke 8:14  And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.

    2116 Luke 8:15  But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

  215. SEASIDE PARABLE 2: THE CANDLE     Mark 4:21-25, Luke 8:16-18
  216. 1200 Mark 4:21  And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick?

    1201 Mark 4:22  For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.

    1202 Mark 4:23  If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

    1203 Mark 4:24  And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.

    1204 Mark 4:25  For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.


    2117 Luke 8:16  No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.

    2118 Luke 8:17  For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.

    2119 Luke 8:18  Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

  217. FAMILY INQUIRY 2     Luke 8:19-21*
  218. 2120 Luke 8:19  Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press.

    2121 Luke 8:20  And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee.

    2122 Luke 8:21  And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

  219. SEASIDE PARABLE 3: THE SEED     Mark 4:26-29
  220. 1205 Mark 4:26  And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;

    1206 Mark 4:27  And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.

    1207 Mark 4:28  For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.

    1208 Mark 4:29  But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.

  221. SEASIDE PARABLE 4: WHEAT AND TARES     Matthew 13:24-30
  222. 0419 Matt 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

    0420 Matt 13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

    0421 Matt 13:26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

    0422 Matt 13:27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

    0423 Matt 13:28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

    0424 Matt 13:29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

    0425 Matt 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

  223. SEASIDE PARABLE 5: THE MUSTARD SEED     Matthew 13:31-32, Mark 4:30-32, [Luke 13:18-19]
  224. 0426 Matt 13:31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:

    0427 Matt 13:32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.


    1209 Mark 4:30  And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?

    1210 Mark 4:31  It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:

    1211 Mark 4:32  But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.


    2392 Luke 13:18 [Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?

    2393 Luke 13:19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.]

  225. SEASIDE PARABLE 6: THE LEAVEN     Matthew 13:33, [Luke 13:20-21]
  226. 0428 Matt 13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.


    2394 Luke 13:20 [And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?

    2395 Luke 13:21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.]

  227. PURPOSE OF PARABLES     Matthew 13:34-35, Mark 4:33-34
  228. 0429 Matt 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

    0430 Matt 13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.


    1212 Mark 4:33  And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it.

    1213 Mark 4:34  But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

  229. SEASIDE PARABLE 4E: WHEAT AND TARES EXPLAINED     Matthew 13:36-43*
  230. 0431 Matt 13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

    0432 Matt 13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

    0433 Matt 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

    0434 Matt 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

    0435 Matt 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

    0436 Matt 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

    0437 Matt 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

    0438 Matt 13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

  231. SEASIDE PARABLE 7 (HOUSE): HIDDEN TREASURE     Matthew 13:44
  232. 0439 Matt 13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

  233. SEASIDE PARABLE 8 (HOUSE): THE PEARL OF GREAT PRICE     Matthew 13:45-46
  234. 0440 Matt 13:45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

    0441 Matt 13:46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

  235. SEASIDE PARABLE 9 (HOUSE): THE NET     Matthew 13:47-50
  236. 0442 Matt 13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

    0443 Matt 13:48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

    0444 Matt 13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

    0445 Matt 13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

  237. SEASIDE PARABLE 10 (HOUSE): THE HOUSEHOLER     Matthew 13:51-53
  238. 0446 Matt 13:51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

    0447 Matt 13:52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

    0448 Matt 13:53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.

  239. TESTS OF DISCIPLESHIP     Matthew 8:18-22, Luke 9:57-62
  240. 0219 Matt 8:18  Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side.

    0220 Matt 8:19  And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

    0221 Matt 8:20  And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

    0222 Matt 8:21  And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

    0223 Matt 8:22  But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.


    2214 Luke 9:57  And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

    2215 Luke 9:58  And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

    2216 Luke 9:59  And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

    2217 Luke 9:60  Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

    2218 Luke 9:61  And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

    2219 Luke 9:62  And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

  241. TEMPEST CALMED     Matthew 8:23-27, Mark 4:35-41*, Luke 8:22-25
  242. 0224 Matt 8:23  And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

    0225 Matt 8:24  And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

    0226 Matt 8:25  And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

    0227 Matt 8:26  And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

    0228 Matt 8:27  But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!


    1214 Mark 4:35  And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.

    1215 Mark 4:36  And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.

    1216 Mark 4:37  And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.

    1217 Mark 4:38  And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?

    1218 Mark 4:39  And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

    1219 Mark 4:40  And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

    1220 Mark 4:41  And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?


    2123 Luke 8:22  Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth.

    2124 Luke 8:23  But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy.

    2125 Luke 8:24  And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.

    2126 Luke 8:25  And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.

  243. GADARENE DEMONIACS     Matthew 8:28-34*, Mark 5:1-20, Luke 8:26-39
  244. 0229 Matt 8:28  And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.

    0230 Matt 8:29  And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

    0231 Matt 8:30  And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding.

    0232 Matt 8:31  So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.

    0233 Matt 8:32  And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.

    0234 Matt 8:33  And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.

    0235 Matt 8:34  And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.


    1221 Mark 5:1   And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.

    1222 Mark 5:2   And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,

    1223 Mark 5:3   Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:

    1224 Mark 5:4   Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.

    1225 Mark 5:5   And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

    1226 Mark 5:6   But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,

    1227 Mark 5:7   And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

    1228 Mark 5:8   For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.

    1229 Mark 5:9   And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

    1230 Mark 5:10  And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.

    1231 Mark 5:11  Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.

    1232 Mark 5:12  And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.

    1233 Mark 5:13  And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

    1234 Mark 5:14  And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.

    1235 Mark 5:15  And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.

    1236 Mark 5:16  And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.

    1237 Mark 5:17  And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.

    1238 Mark 5:18  And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.

    1239 Mark 5:19  Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.

    1240 Mark 5:20  And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.


    2127 Luke 8:26  And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee.

    2128 Luke 8:27  And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city a certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs.

    2129 Luke 8:28  When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not.

    2130 Luke 8:29  (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.)

    2131 Luke 8:30  And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him.

    2132 Luke 8:31  And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep.

    2133 Luke 8:32  And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them.

    2134 Luke 8:33  Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked.

    2135 Luke 8:34  When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and went and told it in the city and in the country.

    2136 Luke 8:35  Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.

    2137 Luke 8:36  They also which saw it told them by what means he that was possessed of the devils was healed.

    2138 Luke 8:37  Then the whole multitude of the country of the Gadarenes round about besought him to depart from them; for they were taken with great fear: and he went up into the ship, and returned back again.

    2139 Luke 8:38  Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him that he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying,

    2140 Luke 8:39  Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him.

  245. SECOND REJECTION AT NAZARETH     Matthew 13:54-58, Mark 6:1-6*
  246. 0449 Matt 13:54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?

    0450 Matt 13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

    0451 Matt 13:56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?

    0452 Matt 13:57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.

    0453 Matt 13:58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.


    1264 Mark 6:1   And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.

    1265 Mark 6:2   And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

    1266 Mark 6:3   Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

    1267 Mark 6:4   But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.

    1268 Mark 6:5   And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.

    1269 Mark 6:6   And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

  247. THIRD TOUR OF GALILEE (SENT BY PAIRS)     Matthew 10:5-15, Mark 6:7-11, Luke 9:1-5*
  248. 0278 Matt 10:5  These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

    0279 Matt 10:6  But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

    0280 Matt 10:7  And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

    0281 Matt 10:8  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

    0282 Matt 10:9  Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,

    0283 Matt 10:10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

    0284 Matt 10:11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.

    0285 Matt 10:12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.

    0286 Matt 10:13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.

    0287 Matt 10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

    0288 Matt 10:15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.


    1270 Mark 6:7   And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

    1271 Mark 6:8   And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:

    1272 Mark 6:9   But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.

    1273 Mark 6:10  And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.

    1274 Mark 6:11  And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.


    2158 Luke 9:1   Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

    2159 Luke 9:2   And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.

    2160 Luke 9:3   And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.

    2161 Luke 9:4   And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.

    2162 Luke 9:5   And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.

  249. FURTHER ADMONISHMENT     Matthew 10:16-42
  250. 0289 Matt 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

    0290 Matt 10:17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

    0291 Matt 10:18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

    0292 Matt 10:19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

    0293 Matt 10:20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

    0294 Matt 10:21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.

    0295 Matt 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

    0296 Matt 10:23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

    0297 Matt 10:24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

    0298 Matt 10:25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

    0299 Matt 10:26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

    0300 Matt 10:27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

    0301 Matt 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

    0302 Matt 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

    0303 Matt 10:30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

    0304 Matt 10:31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    0305 Matt 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

    0306 Matt 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

    0307 Matt 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

    0308 Matt 10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

    0309 Matt 10:36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

    0310 Matt 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

    0311 Matt 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

    0312 Matt 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

    0313 Matt 10:40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

    0314 Matt 10:41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.

    0315 Matt 10:42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

  251. THE TWELVE SENT FORTH     Matthew 11:1*, Mark 6:12-13*, Luke 9:6*
  252. 0316 Matt 11:1  And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.


    1275 Mark 6:12  And they went out, and preached that men should repent.

    1276 Mark 6:13  And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.


    2163 Luke 9:6   And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.

  253. JOHN THE BAPTIST PREVIOUSLY BEHEADED BY HEROD ANTIPAS     Matthew 14:6-12, Mark 6:21-29
  254. 0459 Matt 14:6  But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.

    0460 Matt 14:7  Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.

    0461 Matt 14:8  And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.

    0462 Matt 14:9  And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.

    0463 Matt 14:10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

    0464 Matt 14:11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.

    0465 Matt 14:12 And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.


    1284 Mark 6:21  And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;

    1285 Mark 6:22  And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.

    1286 Mark 6:23  And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.

    1287 Mark 6:24  And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

    1288 Mark 6:25  And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.

    1289 Mark 6:26  And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.

    1290 Mark 6:27  And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,

    1291 Mark 6:28  And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.

    1292 Mark 6:29  And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

  255. HEROD FEARS JESUS IS JOHN THE BAPTIST RISEN     Matthew 14:1-2*, Mark 6:14-16, Luke 9:7-9
  256. 0454 Matt 14:1  At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,

    0455 Matt 14:2  And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.


    1277 Mark 6:14  And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

    1278 Mark 6:15  Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.

    1279 Mark 6:16  But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.


    2164 Luke 9:7   Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from the dead;

    2165 Luke 9:8   And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again.

    2166 Luke 9:9   And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him.

  257. APOSTLES RETURN, WITHDRAWAL TO DESERT     Matthew 14:13a*, Mark 6:30-32, Luke 9:10*
  258. 0466 Matt 14:13 When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: ...


    1293 Mark 6:30  And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.

    1294 Mark 6:31  And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.

    1295 Mark 6:32  And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.


    2167 Luke 9:10  And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida.

  259. FEEDING OF THE FIVE THOUSAND (PASSOVER NEAR)     Matthew 14:13b-21*, Mark 6:33-44*, Luke 9:11-17*, John 6:1-14*
  260. 0466 Matt 14:13 ... and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.

    0467 Matt 14:14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

    0468 Matt 14:15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.

    0469 Matt 14:16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.

    0470 Matt 14:17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

    0471 Matt 14:18 He said, Bring them hither to me.

    0472 Matt 14:19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

    0473 Matt 14:20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

    0474 Matt 14:21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.


    1296 Mark 6:33  And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.

    1297 Mark 6:34  And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

    1298 Mark 6:35  And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:

    1299 Mark 6:36  Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.

    1300 Mark 6:37  He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?

    1301 Mark 6:38  He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.

    1302 Mark 6:39  And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.

    1303 Mark 6:40  And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.

    1304 Mark 6:41  And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.

    1305 Mark 6:42  And they did all eat, and were filled.

    1306 Mark 6:43  And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.

    1307 Mark 6:44  And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.


    2168 Luke 9:11  And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.

    2169 Luke 9:12  And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place.

    2170 Luke 9:13  But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people.

    2171 Luke 9:14  For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company.

    2172 Luke 9:15  And they did so, and made them all sit down.

    2173 Luke 9:16  Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude.

    2174 Luke 9:17  And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.


    3114 John 6:1   After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.

    3115 John 6:2   And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.

    3116 John 6:3   And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.

    3117 John 6:4   And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.

    3118 John 6:5   When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?

    3119 John 6:6   And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.

    3120 John 6:7   Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.

    3121 John 6:8   One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,

    3122 John 6:9   There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

    3123 John 6:10  And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

    3124 John 6:11  And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.

    3125 John 6:12  When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.

    3126 John 6:13  Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.

    3127 John 6:14  Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

  261. WALKING ON WATER     Matthew 14:22-33*, Mark 6:45-52*, John 6:15-21
  262. 0475 Matt 14:22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.

    0476 Matt 14:23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

    0477 Matt 14:24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.

    0478 Matt 14:25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

    0479 Matt 14:26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.

    0480 Matt 14:27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

    0481 Matt 14:28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

    0482 Matt 14:29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

    0483 Matt 14:30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

    0484 Matt 14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

    0485 Matt 14:32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

    0486 Matt 14:33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.


    1308 Mark 6:45  And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.

    1309 Mark 6:46  And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray.

    1310 Mark 6:47  And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land.

    1311 Mark 6:48  And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.

    1312 Mark 6:49  But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:

    1313 Mark 6:50  For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.

    1314 Mark 6:51  And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.

    1315 Mark 6:52  For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.


    3128 John 6:15  When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

    3129 John 6:16  And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,

    3130 John 6:17  And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.

    3131 John 6:18  And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.

    3132 John 6:19  So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.

    3133 John 6:20  But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.

    3134 John 6:21  Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.

  263. TRIUMPHAL HEALING TOUR     Matthew 14:34-36*, Mark 6:53-56*
  264. 0487 Matt 14:34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.

    0488 Matt 14:35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased;

    0489 Matt 14:36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.


    1316 Mark 6:53  And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.

    1317 Mark 6:54  And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,

    1318 Mark 6:55  And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.

    1319 Mark 6:56  And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

  265. THE BREAD OF LIFE     John 6:22-71*
  266. 3135 John 6:22  The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;

    3136 John 6:23  (Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)

    3137 John 6:24  When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.

    3138 John 6:25  And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?

    3139 John 6:26  Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

    3140 John 6:27  Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

    3141 John 6:28  Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

    3142 John 6:29  Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

    3143 John 6:30  They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?

    3144 John 6:31  Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.

    3145 John 6:32  Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

    3146 John 6:33  For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

    3147 John 6:34  Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.

    3148 John 6:35  And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

    3149 John 6:36  But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.

    3150 John 6:37  All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

    3151 John 6:38  For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

    3152 John 6:39  And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

    3153 John 6:40  And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

    3154 John 6:41  The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.

    3155 John 6:42  And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

    3156 John 6:43  Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.

    3157 John 6:44  No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

    3158 John 6:45  It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

    3159 John 6:46  Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

    3160 John 6:47  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

    3161 John 6:48  I am that bread of life.

    3162 John 6:49  Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

    3163 John 6:50  This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

    3164 John 6:51  I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

    3165 John 6:52  The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

    3166 John 6:53  Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

    3167 John 6:54  Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

    3168 John 6:55  For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

    3169 John 6:56  He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

    3170 John 6:57  As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

    3171 John 6:58  This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

    3172 John 6:59  These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

    3173 John 6:60  Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?

    3174 John 6:61  When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?

    3175 John 6:62  What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?

    3176 John 6:63  It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

    3177 John 6:64  But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

    3178 John 6:65  And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

    3179 John 6:66  From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

    3180 John 6:67  Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

    3181 John 6:68  Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

    3182 John 6:69  And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

    3183 John 6:70  Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

    3184 John 6:71  He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.

  267. THIRD PASSOVER: SECRET VISIT     John 7:1*
  268. 3185 John 7:1   After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.

  269. TRADITIONS AND HYPOCRISY CONDEMNED     Matthew 15:1-20*, Mark 7:1-23*
  270. 0490 Matt 15:1  Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,

    0491 Matt 15:2  Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

    0492 Matt 15:3  But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

    0493 Matt 15:4  For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

    0494 Matt 15:5  But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;

    0495 Matt 15:6  And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.

    0496 Matt 15:7  Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

    0497 Matt 15:8  This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

    0498 Matt 15:9  But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    0499 Matt 15:10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:

    0500 Matt 15:11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

    0501 Matt 15:12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?

    0502 Matt 15:13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

    0503 Matt 15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

    0504 Matt 15:15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.

    0505 Matt 15:16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?

    0506 Matt 15:17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?

    0507 Matt 15:18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

    0508 Matt 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

    0509 Matt 15:20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.


    1320 Mark 7:1   Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem.

    1321 Mark 7:2   And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.

    1322 Mark 7:3   For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.

    1323 Mark 7:4   And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.

    1324 Mark 7:5   Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?

    1325 Mark 7:6   He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

    1326 Mark 7:7   Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    1327 Mark 7:8   For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

    1328 Mark 7:9   And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

    1329 Mark 7:10  For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:

    1330 Mark 7:11  But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.

    1331 Mark 7:12  And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;

    1332 Mark 7:13  Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

    1333 Mark 7:14  And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:

    1334 Mark 7:15  There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.

    1335 Mark 7:16  If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

    1336 Mark 7:17  And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.

    1337 Mark 7:18  And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;

    1338 Mark 7:19  Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?

    1339 Mark 7:20  And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.

    1340 Mark 7:21  For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

    1341 Mark 7:22  Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:

    1342 Mark 7:23  All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

  271. SYROPHOENICIAN'S DAUGHTER HEALED     Matthew 15:21-28*, Mark 7:24-30*
  272. 0510 Matt 15:21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.

    0511 Matt 15:22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

    0512 Matt 15:23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

    0513 Matt 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

    0514 Matt 15:25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

    0515 Matt 15:26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

    0516 Matt 15:27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

    0517 Matt 15:28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.


    1343 Mark 7:24  And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could not be hid.

    1344 Mark 7:25  For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:

    1345 Mark 7:26  The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.

    1346 Mark 7:27  But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.

    1347 Mark 7:28  And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs.

    1348 Mark 7:29  And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.

    1349 Mark 7:30  And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.

  273. DECAPOLIS HEALINGS     Matthew 15:29-31*, Mark 7:31-37*
  274. 0518 Matt 15:29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.

    0519 Matt 15:30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:

    0520 Matt 15:31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.


    1350 Mark 7:31  And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.

    1351 Mark 7:32  And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him.

    1352 Mark 7:33  And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;

    1353 Mark 7:34  And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened.

    1354 Mark 7:35  And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.

    1355 Mark 7:36  And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it;

    1356 Mark 7:37  And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

  275. FEEDING OF THE FOUR THOUSAND     Matthew 15:32-39a*, Mark 8:1-9
  276. 0521 Matt 15:32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.

    0522 Matt 15:33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?

    0523 Matt 15:34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.

    0524 Matt 15:35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.

    0525 Matt 15:36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

    0526 Matt 15:37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.

    0527 Matt 15:38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.

    0528 Matt 15:39 And he sent away the multitude, ...


    1357 Mark 8:1   In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,

    1358 Mark 8:2   I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat:

    1359 Mark 8:3   And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.

    1360 Mark 8:4   And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness?

    1361 Mark 8:5   And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.

    1362 Mark 8:6   And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people.

    1363 Mark 8:7   And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them.

    1364 Mark 8:8   So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets.

    1365 Mark 8:9   And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.

  277. PHARISEES AND SADDUCEES SEEK A SIGN     Matthew 15:39b-16:4a, Mark 8:10-12*
  278. 0528 Matt 15:39 ... and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.

    0529 Matt 16:1  The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

    0530 Matt 16:2  He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

    0531 Matt 16:3  And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

    0532 Matt 16:4  A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. ...


    1366 Mark 8:10  And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.

    1367 Mark 8:11  And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.

    1368 Mark 8:12  And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.

  279. THE LEAVEN OF THE PHARISEES     Matthew 16:4b-12*, Mark 8:13-21*
  280. 0532 Matt 16:4  ... And he left them, and departed.

    0533 Matt 16:5  And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread.

    0534 Matt 16:6  Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

    0535 Matt 16:7  And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread.

    0536 Matt 16:8  Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?

    0537 Matt 16:9  Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

    0538 Matt 16:10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

    0539 Matt 16:11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

    0540 Matt 16:12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.


    1369 Mark 8:13  And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.

    1370 Mark 8:14  Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.

    1371 Mark 8:15  And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.

    1372 Mark 8:16  And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread.

    1373 Mark 8:17  And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?

    1374 Mark 8:18  Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?

    1375 Mark 8:19  When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.

    1376 Mark 8:20  And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.

    1377 Mark 8:21  And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?

  281. BLIND MAN: I SEE MEN AS TREES     Mark 8:22-26
  282. 1378 Mark 8:22  And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.

    1379 Mark 8:23  And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.

    1380 Mark 8:24  And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.

    1381 Mark 8:25  After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.

    1382 Mark 8:26  And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.

  283. CONFESSION OF PETER     Matthew 16:13-20, Mark 8:27-30*, Luke 9:18-21
  284. 0541 Matt 16:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

    0542 Matt 16:14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

    0543 Matt 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

    0544 Matt 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

    0545 Matt 16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

    0546 Matt 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    0547 Matt 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

    0548 Matt 16:20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.


    1383 Mark 8:27  And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am?

    1384 Mark 8:28  And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets.

    1385 Mark 8:29  And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.

    1386 Mark 8:30  And he charged them that they should tell no man of him.


    2175 Luke 9:18  And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?

    2176 Luke 9:19  They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.

    2177 Luke 9:20  He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.

    2178 Luke 9:21  And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing;

  285. FIRST PREDICTION OF DEATH AND RESURRECTION     Matthew 16:21-23*, Mark 8:31-33, Luke 9:22*
  286. 0549 Matt 16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

    0550 Matt 16:22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

    0551 Matt 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.


    1387 Mark 8:31  And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

    1388 Mark 8:32  And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.

    1389 Mark 8:33  But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.


    2179 Luke 9:22  Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.

  287. THE COST OF DISCIPLESHIP     Matthew 16:24-28*, Mark 8:34-9:1, Luke 9:23-27, [14:25-27]
  288. 0552 Matt 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

    0553 Matt 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

    0554 Matt 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

    0555 Matt 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

    0556 Matt 16:28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.


    1390 Mark 8:34  And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

    1391 Mark 8:35  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.

    1392 Mark 8:36  For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

    1393 Mark 8:37  Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

    1394 Mark 8:38  Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

    1395 Mark 9:1   And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.


    2180 Luke 9:23  And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

    2181 Luke 9:24  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

    2182 Luke 9:25  For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

    2183 Luke 9:26  For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.

    2184 Luke 9:27  But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.


    2434 Luke 14:25 [And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,

    2435 Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

    2436 Luke 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.]

  289. THE TRANSFIGURATION     Matthew 17:1-9*, Mark 9:2-10*, Luke 9:28-36*
  290. 0557 Matt 17:1  And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,

    0558 Matt 17:2  And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

    0559 Matt 17:3  And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.

    0560 Matt 17:4  Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

    0561 Matt 17:5  While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

    0562 Matt 17:6  And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.

    0563 Matt 17:7  And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.

    0564 Matt 17:8  And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

    0565 Matt 17:9  And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.


    1396 Mark 9:2   And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.

    1397 Mark 9:3   And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.

    1398 Mark 9:4   And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.

    1399 Mark 9:5   And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

    1400 Mark 9:6   For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.

    1401 Mark 9:7   And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

    1402 Mark 9:8   And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.

    1403 Mark 9:9   And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.

    1404 Mark 9:10  And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.


    2185 Luke 9:28  And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.

    2186 Luke 9:29  And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.

    2187 Luke 9:30  And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:

    2188 Luke 9:31  Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.

    2189 Luke 9:32  But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.

    2190 Luke 9:33  And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.

    2191 Luke 9:34  While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.

    2192 Luke 9:35  And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

    2193 Luke 9:36  And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

  291. ELIJAH COMETH FIRST     Matthew 17:10-13, Mark 9:11-13
  292. 0566 Matt 17:10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?

    0567 Matt 17:11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.

    0568 Matt 17:12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.

    0569 Matt 17:13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.


    1405 Mark 9:11  And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?

    1406 Mark 9:12  And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.

    1407 Mark 9:13  But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.

  293. DEMONIAC BOY     Matthew 17:14-21, Mark 9:14-29, Luke 9:37-43a*
  294. 0570 Matt 17:14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,

    0571 Matt 17:15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.

    0572 Matt 17:16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.

    0573 Matt 17:17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.

    0574 Matt 17:18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.

    0575 Matt 17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?

    0576 Matt 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

    0577 Matt 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.


    1408 Mark 9:14  And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.

    1409 Mark 9:15  And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.

    1410 Mark 9:16  And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?

    1411 Mark 9:17  And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;

    1412 Mark 9:18  And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.

    1413 Mark 9:19  He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.

    1414 Mark 9:20  And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.

    1415 Mark 9:21  And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.

    1416 Mark 9:22  And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.

    1417 Mark 9:23  Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

    1418 Mark 9:24  And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

    1419 Mark 9:25  When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.

    1420 Mark 9:26  And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.

    1421 Mark 9:27  But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.

    1422 Mark 9:28  And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?

    1423 Mark 9:29  And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.


    2194 Luke 9:37  And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met him.

    2195 Luke 9:38  And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.

    2196 Luke 9:39  And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him.

    2197 Luke 9:40  And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.

    2198 Luke 9:41  And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.

    2199 Luke 9:42  And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.

    2200 Luke 9:43  And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. ...

  295. SECOND PREDICTION OF DEATH AND RESURRECTION     Matthew 17:22-23, Mark 9:30-32*, Luke 9:43b-45*
  296. 0578 Matt 17:22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:

    0579 Matt 17:23 And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.


    1424 Mark 9:30  And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.

    1425 Mark 9:31  For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.

    1426 Mark 9:32  But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.


    2200 Luke 9:43  ... But while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples,

    2201 Luke 9:44  Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men.

    2202 Luke 9:45  But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.

  297. TAX MONEY IN FISH'S MOUTH     Matthew 17:24-27
  298. 0580 Matt 17:24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?

    0581 Matt 17:25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?

    0582 Matt 17:26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.

    0583 Matt 17:27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

  299. CHILDLIKE HUMILITY     Matthew 18:1-5*, Mark 9:33-37, Luke 9:46-48*
  300. 0584 Matt 18:1  At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

    0585 Matt 18:2  And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

    0586 Matt 18:3  And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    0587 Matt 18:4  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

    0588 Matt 18:5  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.


    1427 Mark 9:33  And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?

    1428 Mark 9:34  But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.

    1429 Mark 9:35  And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

    1430 Mark 9:36  And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,

    1431 Mark 9:37  Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.


    2203 Luke 9:46  Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.

    2204 Luke 9:47  And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him,

    2205 Luke 9:48  And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.

  301. AGAINST SECTARIANISM     Mark 9:38-41*, Luke 9:49-50*
  302. 1432 Mark 9:38  And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.

    1433 Mark 9:39  But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.

    1434 Mark 9:40  For he that is not against us is on our part.

    1435 Mark 9:41  For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.


    2206 Luke 9:49  And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.

    2207 Luke 9:50  And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

  303. OFFENSES AND HELL     Matthew 18:6-10, Mark 9:42-50
  304. 0589 Matt 18:6  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

    0590 Matt 18:7  Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

    0591 Matt 18:8  Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

    0592 Matt 18:9  And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

    0593 Matt 18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.


    1436 Mark 9:42  And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

    1437 Mark 9:43  And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

    1438 Mark 9:44  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

    1439 Mark 9:45  And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

    1440 Mark 9:46  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

    1441 Mark 9:47  And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

    1442 Mark 9:48  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

    1443 Mark 9:49  For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.

    1444 Mark 9:50  Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

  305. PARABLE OF THE LOST SHEEP     Matthew 18:11-14, [Luke 15:3-7]
  306. 0594 Matt 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

    0595 Matt 18:12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?

    0596 Matt 18:13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

    0597 Matt 18:14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.


    2447 Luke 15:3  [And he spake this parable unto them, saying,

    2448 Luke 15:4  What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

    2449 Luke 15:5  And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

    2450 Luke 15:6  And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

    2451 Luke 15:7  I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.]

  307. OFFENDING AND RESTORATION     Matthew 18:15-22
  308. 0598 Matt 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

    0599 Matt 18:16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

    0600 Matt 18:17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

    0601 Matt 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

    0602 Matt 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

    0603 Matt 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

    0604 Matt 18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

    0605 Matt 18:22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

  309. PARABLE OF THE UNMERCIFUL SERVANT     Matthew 18:23-35
  310. 0606 Matt 18:23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.

    0607 Matt 18:24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.

    0608 Matt 18:25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.

    0609 Matt 18:26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

    0610 Matt 18:27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

    0611 Matt 18:28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.

    0612 Matt 18:29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

    0613 Matt 18:30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.

    0614 Matt 18:31 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.

    0615 Matt 18:32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:

    0616 Matt 18:33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?

    0617 Matt 18:34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.

    0618 Matt 18:35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

  311. SECRET ATTENDANCE AT FEAST OF TABERNACLES     John 7:2-10
  312. 3186 John 7:2   Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.

    3187 John 7:3   His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.

    3188 John 7:4   For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.

    3189 John 7:5   For neither did his brethren believe in him.

    3190 John 7:6   Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.

    3191 John 7:7   The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.

    3192 John 7:8   Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.

    3193 John 7:9   When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.

    3194 John 7:10  But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

  313. MARVELLING AND MURMURING     John 7:11-36*
  314. 3195 John 7:11  Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?

    3196 John 7:12  And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people.

    3197 John 7:13  Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.

    3198 John 7:14  Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.

    3199 John 7:15  And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?

    3200 John 7:16  Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

    3201 John 7:17  If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

    3202 John 7:18  He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

    3203 John 7:19  Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?

    3204 John 7:20  The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?

    3205 John 7:21  Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.

    3206 John 7:22  Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a man.

    3207 John 7:23  If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?

    3208 John 7:24  Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

    3209 John 7:25  Then said some of them of Jerusalem, Is not this he, whom they seek to kill?

    3210 John 7:26  But, lo, he speaketh boldly, and they say nothing unto him. Do the rulers know indeed that this is the very Christ?

    3211 John 7:27  Howbeit we know this man whence he is: but when Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.

    3212 John 7:28  Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.

    3213 John 7:29  But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.

    3214 John 7:30  Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

    3215 John 7:31  And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?

    3216 John 7:32  The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.

    3217 John 7:33  Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.

    3218 John 7:34  Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.

    3219 John 7:35  Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?

    3220 John 7:36  What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?

  315. IF ANY MAN THIRST (FAILED ARREST)     John 7:37-49*
  316. 3221 John 7:37  In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

    3222 John 7:38  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

    3223 John 7:39  (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

    3224 John 7:40  Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.

    3225 John 7:41  Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee?

    3226 John 7:42  Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was?

    3227 John 7:43  So there was a division among the people because of him.

    3228 John 7:44  And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.

    3229 John 7:45  Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?

    3230 John 7:46  The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.

    3231 John 7:47  Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?

    3232 John 7:48  Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?

    3233 John 7:49  But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.

  317. NICODEMUS CITES THE LAW     John 7:50-53
  318. 3234 John 7:50  Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)

    3235 John 7:51  Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?

    3236 John 7:52  They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.

    3237 John 7:53  And every man went unto his own house.

  319. WOMAN TAKEN IN ADULTERY     John 8:1-11
  320. 3238 John 8:1   Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

    3239 John 8:2   And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

    3240 John 8:3   And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

    3241 John 8:4   They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

    3242 John 8:5   Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

    3243 John 8:6   This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

    3244 John 8:7   So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

    3245 John 8:8   And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

    3246 John 8:9   And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

    3247 John 8:10  When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

    3248 John 8:11  She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

  321. DEITY REAFFIRMED     John 8:12-59*
  322. 3249 John 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

    3250 John 8:13  The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.

    3251 John 8:14  Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

    3252 John 8:15  Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

    3253 John 8:16  And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

    3254 John 8:17  It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.

    3255 John 8:18  I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.

    3256 John 8:19  Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

    3257 John 8:20  These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.

    3258 John 8:21  Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.

    3259 John 8:22  Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.

    3260 John 8:23  And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

    3261 John 8:24  I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

    3262 John 8:25  Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.

    3263 John 8:26  I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.

    3264 John 8:27  They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.

    3265 John 8:28  Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

    3266 John 8:29  And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

    3267 John 8:30  As he spake these words, many believed on him.

    3268 John 8:31  Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

    3269 John 8:32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    3270 John 8:33  They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

    3271 John 8:34  Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

    3272 John 8:35  And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

    3273 John 8:36  If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

    3274 John 8:37  I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

    3275 John 8:38  I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

    3276 John 8:39  They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

    3277 John 8:40  But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

    3278 John 8:41  Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

    3279 John 8:42  Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

    3280 John 8:43  Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

    3281 John 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    3282 John 8:45  And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

    3283 John 8:46  Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

    3284 John 8:47  He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

    3285 John 8:48  Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?

    3286 John 8:49  Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.

    3287 John 8:50  And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.

    3288 John 8:51  Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

    3289 John 8:52  Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

    3290 John 8:53  Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?

    3291 John 8:54  Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:

    3292 John 8:55  Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.

    3293 John 8:56  Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

    3294 John 8:57  Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

    3295 John 8:58  Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

    3296 John 8:59  Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

  323. SABBATH HEALING OF MAN BORN BLIND     John 9:1-41*
  324. 3297 John 9:1   And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

    3298 John 9:2   And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

    3299 John 9:3   Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

    3300 John 9:4   I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

    3301 John 9:5   As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

    3302 John 9:6   When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

    3303 John 9:7   And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

    3304 John 9:8   The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?

    3305 John 9:9   Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.

    3306 John 9:10  Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?

    3307 John 9:11  He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.

    3308 John 9:12  Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.

    3309 John 9:13  They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.

    3310 John 9:14  And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.

    3311 John 9:15  Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.

    3312 John 9:16  Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.

    3313 John 9:17  They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.

    3314 John 9:18  But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.

    3315 John 9:19  And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?

    3316 John 9:20  His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:

    3317 John 9:21  But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.

    3318 John 9:22  These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.

    3319 John 9:23  Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.

    3320 John 9:24  Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.

    3321 John 9:25  He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.

    3322 John 9:26  Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?

    3323 John 9:27  He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?

    3324 John 9:28  Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.

    3325 John 9:29  We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.

    3326 John 9:30  The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.

    3327 John 9:31  Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

    3328 John 9:32  Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.

    3329 John 9:33  If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.

    3330 John 9:34  They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.

    3331 John 9:35  Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

    3332 John 9:36  He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?

    3333 John 9:37  And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.

    3334 John 9:38  And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.

    3335 John 9:39  And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

    3336 John 9:40  And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also?

    3337 John 9:41  Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

  325. THE GOOD SHEPHERD     John 10:1-21
  326. 3338 John 10:1  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

    3339 John 10:2  But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

    3340 John 10:3  To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

    3341 John 10:4  And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

    3342 John 10:5  And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

    3343 John 10:6  This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.

    3344 John 10:7  Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

    3345 John 10:8  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

    3346 John 10:9  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

    3347 John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

    3348 John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

    3349 John 10:12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

    3350 John 10:13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

    3351 John 10:14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

    3352 John 10:15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

    3353 John 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

    3354 John 10:17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

    3355 John 10:18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

    3356 John 10:19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.

    3357 John 10:20 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?

    3358 John 10:21 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?

  327. REJECTION IN SAMARIA     Luke 9:51-56
  328. 2208 Luke 9:51  And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,

    2209 Luke 9:52  And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.

    2210 Luke 9:53  And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.

    2211 Luke 9:54  And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?

    2212 Luke 9:55  But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.

    2213 Luke 9:56  For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

  329. THE SEVENTY DISCIPLES SENT OUT     Luke 10:1-16*
  330. 2220 Luke 10:1  After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.

    2221 Luke 10:2  Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

    2222 Luke 10:3  Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

    2223 Luke 10:4  Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.

    2224 Luke 10:5  And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

    2225 Luke 10:6  And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.

    2226 Luke 10:7  And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

    2227 Luke 10:8  And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:

    2228 Luke 10:9  And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

    2229 Luke 10:10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,

    2230 Luke 10:11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

    2231 Luke 10:12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.

    2232 Luke 10:13 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.

    2233 Luke 10:14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you.

    2234 Luke 10:15 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.

    2235 Luke 10:16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

  331. THE SEVENTY DISCIPLES RETURN     Luke 10:17-24
  332. 2236 Luke 10:17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

    2237 Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

    2238 Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

    2239 Luke 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

    2240 Luke 10:21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

    2241 Luke 10:22 All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

    2242 Luke 10:23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:

    2243 Luke 10:24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

  333. THE GOOD SAMARITAN     Luke 10:25-37*
  334. 2244 Luke 10:25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

    2245 Luke 10:26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

    2246 Luke 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

    2247 Luke 10:28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

    2248 Luke 10:29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

    2249 Luke 10:30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

    2250 Luke 10:31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

    2251 Luke 10:32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

    2252 Luke 10:33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

    2253 Luke 10:34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

    2254 Luke 10:35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

    2255 Luke 10:36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

    2256 Luke 10:37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

  335. MARTHA AND MARY     Luke 10:38-42
  336. 2257 Luke 10:38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

    2258 Luke 10:39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.

    2259 Luke 10:40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

    2260 Luke 10:41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

    2261 Luke 10:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

  337. THE LORD'S PRAYER REITERATED TO THE DISCIPLES     Luke 11:1-4
  338. 2262 Luke 11:1  And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

    2263 Luke 11:2  And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

    2264 Luke 11:3  Give us day by day our daily bread.

    2265 Luke 11:4  And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

  339. PARABLE OF THE PERSISTENT FRIEND     Luke 11:5-13
  340. 2266 Luke 11:5  And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves;

    2267 Luke 11:6  For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him?

    2268 Luke 11:7  And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee.

    2269 Luke 11:8  I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.

    2270 Luke 11:9  And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

    2271 Luke 11:10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

    2272 Luke 11:11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?

    2273 Luke 11:12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

    2274 Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

  341. THE SIGN OF JONAH REITERATED    Luke 11:29-32
  342. 2290 Luke 11:29 And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

    2291 Luke 11:30 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.

    2292 Luke 11:31 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

    2293 Luke 11:32 The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

  343. CANDLESTICK TEACHING REITERATED     Luke 11:33
  344. 2294 Luke 11:33 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.

  345. EYE TEACHING REITERATED     Luke 11:34-36
  346. 2295 Luke 11:34 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

    2296 Luke 11:35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.

    2297 Luke 11:36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

  347. REBUKE OF HYPOCRISY     Luke 11:37-54*
  348. 2298 Luke 11:37 And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.

    2299 Luke 11:38 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner.

    2300 Luke 11:39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.

    2301 Luke 11:40 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?

    2302 Luke 11:41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.

    2303 Luke 11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

    2304 Luke 11:43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.

    2305 Luke 11:44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.

    2306 Luke 11:45 Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.

    2307 Luke 11:46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.

    2308 Luke 11:47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.

    2309 Luke 11:48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.

    2310 Luke 11:49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:

    2311 Luke 11:50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;

    2312 Luke 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

    2313 Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

    2314 Luke 11:53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things:

    2315 Luke 11:54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

  349. THE LEAVEN OF THE PHARISEES     Luke 12:1-12*
  350. 2316 Luke 12:1  In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

    2317 Luke 12:2  For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

    2318 Luke 12:3  Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

    2319 Luke 12:4  And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

    2320 Luke 12:5  But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

    2321 Luke 12:6  Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?

    2322 Luke 12:7  But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    2323 Luke 12:8  Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:

    2324 Luke 12:9  But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.

    2325 Luke 12:10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

    2326 Luke 12:11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:

    2327 Luke 12:12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

  351. COVETOUSNESS     Luke 12:13-15*
  352. 2328 Luke 12:13 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.

    2329 Luke 12:14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?

    2330 Luke 12:15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

  353. PARABLE OF THE RICH FOOL     Luke 12:16-21
  354. 2331 Luke 12:16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

    2332 Luke 12:17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

    2333 Luke 12:18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

    2334 Luke 12:19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

    2335 Luke 12:20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

    2336 Luke 12:21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

  355. TAKE NO THOUGHT REITERATED    Luke 12:22-34
  356. 2337 Luke 12:22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.

    2338 Luke 12:23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

    2339 Luke 12:24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

    2340 Luke 12:25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

    2341 Luke 12:26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

    2342 Luke 12:27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

    2343 Luke 12:28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?

    2344 Luke 12:29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

    2345 Luke 12:30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

    2346 Luke 12:31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    2347 Luke 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

    2348 Luke 12:33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.

    2349 Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

  357. PARABLE OF THE WATCHFUL SERVANT     Luke 12:35-48
  358. 2350 Luke 12:35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;

    2351 Luke 12:36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.

    2352 Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

    2353 Luke 12:38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.

    2354 Luke 12:39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

    2355 Luke 12:40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

    2356 Luke 12:41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?

    2357 Luke 12:42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?

    2358 Luke 12:43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

    2359 Luke 12:44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.

    2360 Luke 12:45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;

    2361 Luke 12:46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

    2362 Luke 12:47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

    2363 Luke 12:48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

  359. CHRIST TO BRING FIRE AND HOUSEHOLD DIVISION (NOT PEACE)     Luke 12:49-53
  360. 2364 Luke 12:49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?

    2365 Luke 12:50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!

    2366 Luke 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

    2367 Luke 12:52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

    2368 Luke 12:53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

  361. HYPOCRITICAL JUDGING     Luke 12:54-59
  362. 2369 Luke 12:54 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.

    2370 Luke 12:55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.

    2371 Luke 12:56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

    2372 Luke 12:57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

    2373 Luke 12:58 When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.

    2374 Luke 12:59 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.

  363. REPENT OR PERISH     Luke 13:1-5*
  364. 2375 Luke 13:1  There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.

    2376 Luke 13:2  And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?

    2377 Luke 13:3  I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

    2378 Luke 13:4  Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?

    2379 Luke 13:5  I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

  365. PARABLE OF THE FRUITLESS FIG TREE     Luke 13:6-9
  366. 2380 Luke 13:6  He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.

    2381 Luke 13:7  Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?

    2382 Luke 13:8  And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:

    2383 Luke 13:9  And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

  367. SABBATH HEALING OF WOMAN WITH 18-YEAR INFIRMITY     Luke 13:10-17
  368. 2384 Luke 13:10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.

    2385 Luke 13:11 And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.

    2386 Luke 13:12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

    2387 Luke 13:13 And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.

    2388 Luke 13:14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day.

    2389 Luke 13:15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?

    2390 Luke 13:16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?

    2391 Luke 13:17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.

  369. PARABLE OF THE MUSTARD SEED REITERATED     Luke 13:18-19*
  370. 2392 Luke 13:18 Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?

    2393 Luke 13:19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.

  371. PARABLE OF THE LEAVEN REITERATED     Luke 13:20-21
  372. 2394 Luke 13:20 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?

    2395 Luke 13:21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

  373. TRAVEL TOWARD JERUSALEM     Luke 13:22
  374. 2396 Luke 13:22 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.

  375. THE STRAIT GATE EXPOUNDED     Luke 13:23-30*
  376. 2397 Luke 13:23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,

    2398 Luke 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

    2399 Luke 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:

    2400 Luke 13:26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

    2401 Luke 13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

    2402 Luke 13:28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

    2403 Luke 13:29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.

    2404 Luke 13:30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

  377. THAT FOX HEROD     Luke 13:31-33*
  378. 2405 Luke 13:31 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.

    2406 Luke 13:32 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.

    2407 Luke 13:33 Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

  379. FIRST LAMENT OVER JERUSALEM     Luke 13:34-35
  380. 2408 Luke 13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!

    2409 Luke 13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

  381. WINTER FEAST OF THE DEDICATION: I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE     John 10:22-30
  382. 3359 John 10:22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.

    3360 John 10:23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.

    3361 John 10:24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.

    3362 John 10:25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.

    3363 John 10:26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

    3364 John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

    3365 John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

    3366 John 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

    3367 John 10:30 I and my Father are one.

  383. ATTEMPTED STONING     John 10:31-39*
  384. 3368 John 10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

    3369 John 10:32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

    3370 John 10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

    3371 John 10:34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

    3372 John 10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;

    3373 John 10:36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

    3374 John 10:37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.

    3375 John 10:38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

    3376 John 10:39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,

  385. WITHDRAWAL TO PEREA     John 10:40-42*
  386. 3377 John 10:40 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.

    3378 John 10:41 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.

    3379 John 10:42 And many believed on him there.

  387. SABBATH HEALING OF DROPSY     Luke 14:1-6
  388. 2410 Luke 14:1  And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him.

    2411 Luke 14:2  And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy.

    2412 Luke 14:3  And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?

    2413 Luke 14:4  And they held their peace. And he took him, and healed him, and let him go;

    2414 Luke 14:5  And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day?

    2415 Luke 14:6  And they could not answer him again to these things.

  389. PARABLE OF THE AMBITIOUS GUESTS     Luke 14:7-14*
  390. 2416 Luke 14:7  And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,

    2417 Luke 14:8  When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;

    2418 Luke 14:9  And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.

    2419 Luke 14:10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.

    2420 Luke 14:11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

    2421 Luke 14:12 Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.

    2422 Luke 14:13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:

    2423 Luke 14:14 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

  391. PARABLE OF THE GREAT SUPPER     Luke 14:15-24*
  392. 2424 Luke 14:15 And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.

    2425 Luke 14:16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:

    2426 Luke 14:17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.

    2427 Luke 14:18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.

    2428 Luke 14:19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.

    2429 Luke 14:20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.

    2430 Luke 14:21 So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.

    2431 Luke 14:22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.

    2432 Luke 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

    2433 Luke 14:24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.

  393. THE COST OF DISCIPLESHIP EXPOUNDED     Luke 14:25-35
  394. 2434 Luke 14:25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,

    2435 Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

    2436 Luke 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

    2437 Luke 14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

    2438 Luke 14:29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,

    2439 Luke 14:30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.

    2440 Luke 14:31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?

    2441 Luke 14:32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.

    2442 Luke 14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

    2443 Luke 14:34 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?

    2444 Luke 14:35 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

  395. PARABLE OF THE LOST SHEEP REITERATED    Luke 15:1-7*
  396. 2445 Luke 15:1  Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.

    2446 Luke 15:2  And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

    2447 Luke 15:3  And he spake this parable unto them, saying,

    2448 Luke 15:4  What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

    2449 Luke 15:5  And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

    2450 Luke 15:6  And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

    2451 Luke 15:7  I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

  397. PARABLE OF THE LOST COIN     Luke 15:8-10
  398. 2452 Luke 15:8  Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

    2453 Luke 15:9  And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.

    2454 Luke 15:10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

  399. PARABLE OF THE PRODIGAL SON     Luke 15:11-32
  400. 2455 Luke 15:11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:

    2456 Luke 15:12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.

    2457 Luke 15:13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.

    2458 Luke 15:14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.

    2459 Luke 15:15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

    2460 Luke 15:16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.

    2461 Luke 15:17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

    2462 Luke 15:18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,

    2463 Luke 15:19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.

    2464 Luke 15:20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

    2465 Luke 15:21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.

    2466 Luke 15:22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

    2467 Luke 15:23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:

    2468 Luke 15:24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

    2469 Luke 15:25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.

    2470 Luke 15:26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.

    2471 Luke 15:27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.

    2472 Luke 15:28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.

    2473 Luke 15:29 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:

    2474 Luke 15:30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.

    2475 Luke 15:31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.

    2476 Luke 15:32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

  401. PARABLE OF THE UNJUST STEWARD     Luke 16:1-13
  402. 2477 Luke 16:1  And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.

    2478 Luke 16:2  And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.

    2479 Luke 16:3  Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.

    2480 Luke 16:4  I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.

    2481 Luke 16:5  So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?

    2482 Luke 16:6  And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.

    2483 Luke 16:7  Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.

    2484 Luke 16:8  And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.

    2485 Luke 16:9  And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.

    2486 Luke 16:10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

    2487 Luke 16:11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?

    2488 Luke 16:12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?

    2489 Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

  403. PHARISEES COVETOUS     Luke 16:14-18*
  404. 2490 Luke 16:14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.

    2491 Luke 16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

    2492 Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

    2493 Luke 16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

    2494 Luke 16:18 Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.

  405. LAZARUS AND THE RICH MAN     Luke 16:19-31
  406. 2495 Luke 16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

    2496 Luke 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

    2497 Luke 16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

    2498 Luke 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

    2499 Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

    2500 Luke 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

    2501 Luke 16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

    2502 Luke 16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

    2503 Luke 16:27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:

    2504 Luke 16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

    2505 Luke 16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

    2506 Luke 16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

    2507 Luke 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

  407. OFFENDING AND FORGIVENESS     Luke 17:1-4*
  408. 2508 Luke 17:1  Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!

    2509 Luke 17:2  It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

    2510 Luke 17:3  Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

    2511 Luke 17:4  And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

  409. FAITH AND DUTY     Luke 17:5-10
  410. 2512 Luke 17:5  And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.

    2513 Luke 17:6  And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

    2514 Luke 17:7  But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat?

    2515 Luke 17:8  And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink?

    2516 Luke 17:9  Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.

    2517 Luke 17:10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.

  411. LAZARUS RAISED    John 11:1-46
  412. 3380 John 11:1  Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.

    3381 John 11:2  (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

    3382 John 11:3  Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

    3383 John 11:4  When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

    3384 John 11:5  Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

    3385 John 11:6  When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.

    3386 John 11:7  Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.

    3387 John 11:8  His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?

    3388 John 11:9  Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

    3389 John 11:10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

    3390 John 11:11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

    3391 John 11:12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

    3392 John 11:13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

    3393 John 11:14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

    3394 John 11:15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.

    3395 John 11:16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

    3396 John 11:17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.

    3397 John 11:18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:

    3398 John 11:19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

    3399 John 11:20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.

    3400 John 11:21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

    3401 John 11:22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

    3402 John 11:23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

    3403 John 11:24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

    3404 John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

    3405 John 11:26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

    3406 John 11:27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

    3407 John 11:28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

    3408 John 11:29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.

    3409 John 11:30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.

    3410 John 11:31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.

    3411 John 11:32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

    3412 John 11:33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,

    3413 John 11:34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

    3414 John 11:35 Jesus wept.

    3415 John 11:36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

    3416 John 11:37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

    3417 John 11:38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

    3418 John 11:39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

    3419 John 11:40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

    3420 John 11:41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

    3421 John 11:42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

    3422 John 11:43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

    3423 John 11:44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

    3424 John 11:45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.

    3425 John 11:46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.

  413. CAIAPHAS PROPHESIES UNWITTINGLY     John 11:47-53*
  414. 3426 John 11:47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.

    3427 John 11:48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

    3428 John 11:49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

    3429 John 11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

    3430 John 11:51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

    3431 John 11:52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

    3432 John 11:53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

  415. WITHDRAWAL TO EPHRAIM     John 11:54*
  416. 3433 John 11:54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.

  417. TEN LEPERS HEALED     Luke 17:11-19
  418. 2518 Luke 17:11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.

    2519 Luke 17:12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:

    2520 Luke 17:13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.

    2521 Luke 17:14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.

    2522 Luke 17:15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,

    2523 Luke 17:16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

    2524 Luke 17:17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?

    2525 Luke 17:18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.

    2526 Luke 17:19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

  419. THE KINGDOM IS WITHIN     Luke 17:20-37
  420. 2527 Luke 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

    2528 Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

    2529 Luke 17:22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.

    2530 Luke 17:23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.

    2531 Luke 17:24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

    2532 Luke 17:25 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.

    2533 Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

    2534 Luke 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

    2535 Luke 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

    2536 Luke 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

    2537 Luke 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

    2538 Luke 17:31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

    2539 Luke 17:32 Remember Lot's wife.

    2540 Luke 17:33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

    2541 Luke 17:34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.

    2542 Luke 17:35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    2543 Luke 17:36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    2544 Luke 17:37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

  421. PARABLE OF THE PERSISTENT WIDOW     Luke 18:1-8
  422. 2545 Luke 18:1  And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

    2546 Luke 18:2  Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:

    2547 Luke 18:3  And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.

    2548 Luke 18:4  And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;

    2549 Luke 18:5  Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.

    2550 Luke 18:6  And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.

    2551 Luke 18:7  And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?

    2552 Luke 18:8  I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

  423. PARABLE OF THE PHARISEE AND THE PUBLICAN     Luke 18:9-14
  424. 2553 Luke 18:9  And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:

    2554 Luke 18:10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

    2555 Luke 18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

    2556 Luke 18:12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

    2557 Luke 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

    2558 Luke 18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

  425. FROM GALILEE TO PEREA     Matthew 19:1-2*, Mark 10:1*
  426. 0619 Matt 19:1  And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;

    0620 Matt 19:2  And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.


    1445 Mark 10:1  And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea by the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again.

  427. DIVORCE     Matthew 19:3-12, Mark 10:2-12
  428. 0621 Matt 19:3  The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

    0622 Matt 19:4  And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,

    0623 Matt 19:5  And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?

    0624 Matt 19:6  Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

    0625 Matt 19:7  They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?

    0626 Matt 19:8  He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

    0627 Matt 19:9  And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

    0628 Matt 19:10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.

    0629 Matt 19:11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.

    0630 Matt 19:12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.


    1446 Mark 10:2  And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him.

    1447 Mark 10:3  And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?

    1448 Mark 10:4  And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.

    1449 Mark 10:5  And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.

    1450 Mark 10:6  But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

    1451 Mark 10:7  For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

    1452 Mark 10:8  And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

    1453 Mark 10:9  What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

    1454 Mark 10:10 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.

    1455 Mark 10:11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

    1456 Mark 10:12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

  429. SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN     Matthew 19:13-15*, Mark 10:13-16, Luke 18:15-17
  430. 0631 Matt 19:13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.

    0632 Matt 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

    0633 Matt 19:15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.


    1457 Mark 10:13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.

    1458 Mark 10:14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

    1459 Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

    1460 Mark 10:16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.


    2559 Luke 18:15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.

    2560 Luke 18:16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

    2561 Luke 18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

  431. THE RICH YOUNG RULER     Matthew 19:16-26*, Mark 10:17-27*, Luke 18:18-27
  432. 0634 Matt 19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

    0635 Matt 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

    0636 Matt 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

    0637 Matt 19:19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

    0638 Matt 19:20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

    0639 Matt 19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

    0640 Matt 19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

    0641 Matt 19:23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    0642 Matt 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

    0643 Matt 19:25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

    0644 Matt 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.


    1461 Mark 10:17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

    1462 Mark 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

    1463 Mark 10:19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

    1464 Mark 10:20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.

    1465 Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

    1466 Mark 10:22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

    1467 Mark 10:23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

    1468 Mark 10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

    1469 Mark 10:25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

    1470 Mark 10:26 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?

    1471 Mark 10:27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.


    2562 Luke 18:18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

    2563 Luke 18:19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

    2564 Luke 18:20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.

    2565 Luke 18:21 And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.

    2566 Luke 18:22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

    2567 Luke 18:23 And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.

    2568 Luke 18:24 And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

    2569 Luke 18:25 For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

    2570 Luke 18:26 And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?

    2571 Luke 18:27 And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

  433. HUNDRED-FOLD REWARD     Matthew 19:27-30*, Mark 10:28-31*, Luke 18:28-30*
  434. 0645 Matt 19:27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

    0646 Matt 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

    0647 Matt 19:29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

    0648 Matt 19:30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.


    1472 Mark 10:28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.

    1473 Mark 10:29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,

    1474 Mark 10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

    1475 Mark 10:31 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.


    2572 Luke 18:28 Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.

    2573 Luke 18:29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake,

    2574 Luke 18:30 Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.

  435. PARABLE OF THE LABOURERS     Matthew 20:1-16
  436. 0649 Matt 20:1  For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.

    0650 Matt 20:2  And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.

    0651 Matt 20:3  And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,

    0652 Matt 20:4  And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.

    0653 Matt 20:5  Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.

    0654 Matt 20:6  And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?

    0655 Matt 20:7  They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.

    0656 Matt 20:8  So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.

    0657 Matt 20:9  And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.

    0658 Matt 20:10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.

    0659 Matt 20:11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,

    0660 Matt 20:12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.

    0661 Matt 20:13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?

    0662 Matt 20:14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.

    0663 Matt 20:15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?

    0664 Matt 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

  437. THIRD PREDICTION OF DEATH AND RESURRECTION     Matthew 20:17-19, Mark 10:32-34, Luke 18:31-34*
  438. 0665 Matt 20:17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,

    0666 Matt 20:18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death,

    0667 Matt 20:19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.


    1476 Mark 10:32 And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,

    1477 Mark 10:33 Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:

    1478 Mark 10:34 And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.


    2575 Luke 18:31 Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.

    2576 Luke 18:32 For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:

    2577 Luke 18:33 And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again.

    2578 Luke 18:34 And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.

  439. AMBITIOUS MOTHER OF JAMES AND JOHN     Matthew 20:20-28*, Mark 10:35-45
  440. 0668 Matt 20:20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.

    0669 Matt 20:21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.

    0670 Matt 20:22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.

    0671 Matt 20:23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.

    0672 Matt 20:24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren.

    0673 Matt 20:25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.

    0674 Matt 20:26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;

    0675 Matt 20:27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:

    0676 Matt 20:28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.


    1479 Mark 10:35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.

    1480 Mark 10:36 And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?

    1481 Mark 10:37 They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.

    1482 Mark 10:38 But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?

    1483 Mark 10:39 And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized:

    1484 Mark 10:40 But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.

    1485 Mark 10:41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.

    1486 Mark 10:42 But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.

    1487 Mark 10:43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:

    1488 Mark 10:44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.

    1489 Mark 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

  441. TWO BLIND MEN (INCLUDING BARTIMAEUS)     Matthew 20:29-34, Mark 10:46-52, Luke 18:35-43
  442. 0677 Matt 20:29 And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.

    0678 Matt 20:30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.

    0679 Matt 20:31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.

    0680 Matt 20:32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?

    0681 Matt 20:33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.

    0682 Matt 20:34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.


    1490 Mark 10:46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.

    1491 Mark 10:47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

    1492 Mark 10:48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

    1493 Mark 10:49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.

    1494 Mark 10:50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.

    1495 Mark 10:51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.

    1496 Mark 10:52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.


    2579 Luke 18:35 And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:

    2580 Luke 18:36 And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.

    2581 Luke 18:37 And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.

    2582 Luke 18:38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

    2583 Luke 18:39 And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

    2584 Luke 18:40 And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him,

    2585 Luke 18:41 Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight.

    2586 Luke 18:42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.

    2587 Luke 18:43 And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

  443. ZACCHAEUS (CHIEF PUBLICAN) CONVERTED     Luke 19:1-10
  444. 2588 Luke 19:1  And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.

    2589 Luke 19:2  And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.

    2590 Luke 19:3  And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.

    2591 Luke 19:4  And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.

    2592 Luke 19:5  And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.

    2593 Luke 19:6  And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.

    2594 Luke 19:7  And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.

    2595 Luke 19:8  And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

    2596 Luke 19:9  And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

    2597 Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

  445. PARABLE OF THE POUNDS     Luke 19:11-28*
  446. 2598 Luke 19:11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.

    2599 Luke 19:12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

    2600 Luke 19:13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

    2601 Luke 19:14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.

    2602 Luke 19:15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.

    2603 Luke 19:16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.

    2604 Luke 19:17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

    2605 Luke 19:18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.

    2606 Luke 19:19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

    2607 Luke 19:20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:

    2608 Luke 19:21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.

    2609 Luke 19:22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

    2610 Luke 19:23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?

    2611 Luke 19:24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

    2612 Luke 19:25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

    2613 Luke 19:26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

    2614 Luke 19:27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

    2615 Luke 19:28 And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.

  447. FOURTH PASSOVER AT HAND     John 11:55-57
  448. 3434 John 11:55 And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.

    3435 John 11:56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?

    3436 John 11:57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.

  449. SATURDAY: MARY OF BETHANY ANNOINTS JESUS SIX DAYS BEFORE PASSOVER     Matthew 26:6-13, Mark 14:3-9, John 12:1-8
  450. 0916 Matt 26:6  Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,

    0917 Matt 26:7  There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.

    0918 Matt 26:8  But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?

    0919 Matt 26:9  For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.

    0920 Matt 26:10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.

    0921 Matt 26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.

    0922 Matt 26:12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.

    0923 Matt 26:13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.


    1613 Mark 14:3  And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.

    1614 Mark 14:4  And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made?

    1615 Mark 14:5  For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.

    1616 Mark 14:6  And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.

    1617 Mark 14:7  For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.

    1618 Mark 14:8  She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.

    1619 Mark 14:9  Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.


    3437 John 12:1  Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.

    3438 John 12:2  There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.

    3439 John 12:3  Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.

    3440 John 12:4  Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,

    3441 John 12:5  Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?

    3442 John 12:6  This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

    3443 John 12:7  Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.

    3444 John 12:8  For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.

  451. PEOPLE SEEK JESUS AND LAZARUS     John 12:9-11*
  452. 3445 John 12:9  Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.

    3446 John 12:10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;

    3447 John 12:11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.

    0684 Matt 21:2  Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.

    0685 Matt 21:3  And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.

    0686 Matt 21:4  All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,

    0687 Matt 21:5  Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

    0688 Matt 21:6  And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

    0689 Matt 21:7  And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.

    0690 Matt 21:8  And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.

    0691 Matt 21:9  And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.


    1497 Mark 11:1  And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,

    1498 Mark 11:2  And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him.

    1499 Mark 11:3  And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.

    1500 Mark 11:4  And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.

    1501 Mark 11:5  And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?

    1502 Mark 11:6  And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.

    1503 Mark 11:7  And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.

    1504 Mark 11:8  And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.

    1505 Mark 11:9  And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:

    1506 Mark 11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.


    2616 Luke 19:29 And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,

    2617 Luke 19:30 Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.

    2618 Luke 19:31 And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.

    2619 Luke 19:32 And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them.

    2620 Luke 19:33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt?

    2621 Luke 19:34 And they said, The Lord hath need of him.

    2622 Luke 19:35 And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.

    2623 Luke 19:36 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.

    2624 Luke 19:37 And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;

    2625 Luke 19:38 Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

    2626 Luke 19:39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.

    2627 Luke 19:40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.


    3448 John 12:12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

    3449 John 12:13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

    3450 John 12:14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,

    3451 John 12:15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.

    3452 John 12:16 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.

    3453 John 12:17 The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.

    3454 John 12:18 For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.

    3455 John 12:19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.

    2630 Luke 19:43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,

    1508 Mark 11:12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:

    1509 Mark 11:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.

    1510 Mark 11:14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

    1512 Mark 11:16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.

    1513 Mark 11:17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.

    0704 Matt 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

  474. 0705 Matt 21:23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?

    0706 Matt 21:24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things.

    0707 Matt 21:25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?

    0708 Matt 21:26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet.

    0709 Matt 21:27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.


    1523 Mark 11:27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,

    1524 Mark 11:28 And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things?

    1525 Mark 11:29 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.

    1526 Mark 11:30 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.

    1527 Mark 11:31 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?

    1528 Mark 11:32 But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.

    1529 Mark 11:33 And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.


    2636 Luke 20:1  And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon him with the elders,

    2637 Luke 20:2  And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?

    2638 Luke 20:3  And he answered and said unto them, I will also ask you one thing; and answer me:

    2639 Luke 20:4  The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men?

    2640 Luke 20:5  And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not?

    2641 Luke 20:6  But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet.

    2642 Luke 20:7  And they answered, that they could not tell whence it was.

    2643 Luke 20:8  And Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.

  475. RESPONSE PARABLE 1: THE TWO SONS     Matthew 21:28-32
  476. 0710 Matt 21:28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.

    0711 Matt 21:29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.

    0712 Matt 21:30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.

    0713 Matt 21:31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.

    0714 Matt 21:32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.

  477. RESPONSE PARABLE 2: THE WICKED HUSBANDMEN     Matthew 21:33-46, Mark 12:1-12, Luke 20:9-19*
  478. 0715 Matt 21:33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:

    0716 Matt 21:34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

    0717 Matt 21:35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.

    0718 Matt 21:36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

    0719 Matt 21:37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.

    0720 Matt 21:38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.

    0721 Matt 21:39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

    0722 Matt 21:40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

    0723 Matt 21:41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

    0724 Matt 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

    0725 Matt 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

    0726 Matt 21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

    0727 Matt 21:45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

    0728 Matt 21:46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.


    1530 Mark 12:1  And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.

    1531 Mark 12:2  And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.

    1532 Mark 12:3  And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.

    1533 Mark 12:4  And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.

    1534 Mark 12:5  And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.

    1535 Mark 12:6  Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.

    1536 Mark 12:7  But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.

    1537 Mark 12:8  And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.

    1538 Mark 12:9  What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.

    1539 Mark 12:10 And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:

    1540 Mark 12:11 This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

    1541 Mark 12:12 And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way.


    2644 Luke 20:9  Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time.

    2645 Luke 20:10 And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty.

    2646 Luke 20:11 And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.

    2647 Luke 20:12 And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out.

    2648 Luke 20:13 Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.

    2649 Luke 20:14 But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.

    2650 Luke 20:15 So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?

    2651 Luke 20:16 He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.

    2652 Luke 20:17 And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?

    2653 Luke 20:18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

    2654 Luke 20:19 And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them.

  479. RESPONSE PARABLE 3: THE WEDDING GARMENT     Matthew 22:1-14*
  480. 0729 Matt 22:1  And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,

    0730 Matt 22:2  The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

    0731 Matt 22:3  And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.

    0732 Matt 22:4  Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

    0733 Matt 22:5  But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:

    0734 Matt 22:6  And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.

    0735 Matt 22:7  But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

    0736 Matt 22:8  Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.

    0737 Matt 22:9  Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.

    0738 Matt 22:10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

    0739 Matt 22:11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

    0740 Matt 22:12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

    0741 Matt 22:13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    0742 Matt 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

  481. PHARISEES/HERODIANS: PAY TRIBUTE TO CAESAR OR NOT?     Matthew 22:15-22*, Mark 12:13-17, Luke 20:20-26*
  482. 0743 Matt 22:15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.

    0744 Matt 22:16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.

    0745 Matt 22:17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

    0746 Matt 22:18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?

    0747 Matt 22:19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

    0748 Matt 22:20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

    0749 Matt 22:21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

    0750 Matt 22:22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.


    1542 Mark 12:13 And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.

    1543 Mark 12:14 And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?

    1544 Mark 12:15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.

    1545 Mark 12:16 And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar's.

    1546 Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.


    2655 Luke 20:20 And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor.

    2656 Luke 20:21 And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly:

    2657 Luke 20:22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?

    2658 Luke 20:23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me?

    2659 Luke 20:24 Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar's.

    2660 Luke 20:25 And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's.

    2661 Luke 20:26 And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.

  483. SADDUCEES: ESPOUSAL IN THE RESURRECTION?     Matthew 22:23-33*, Mark 12:18-27*, Luke 20:27-40*
  484. 0751 Matt 22:23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,

    0752 Matt 22:24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

    0753 Matt 22:25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:

    0754 Matt 22:26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.

    0755 Matt 22:27 And last of all the woman died also.

    0756 Matt 22:28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.

    0757 Matt 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

    0758 Matt 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

    0759 Matt 22:31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,

    0760 Matt 22:32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

    0761 Matt 22:33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.


    1547 Mark 12:18 Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,

    1548 Mark 12:19 Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

    1549 Mark 12:20 Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.

    1550 Mark 12:21 And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.

    1551 Mark 12:22 And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.

    1552 Mark 12:23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.

    1553 Mark 12:24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?

    1554 Mark 12:25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.

    1555 Mark 12:26 And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?

    1556 Mark 12:27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.


    2662 Luke 20:27 Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked him,

    2663 Luke 20:28 Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

    2664 Luke 20:29 There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children.

    2665 Luke 20:30 And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.

    2666 Luke 20:31 And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and they left no children, and died.

    2667 Luke 20:32 Last of all the woman died also.

    2668 Luke 20:33 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife.

    2669 Luke 20:34 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:

    2670 Luke 20:35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:

    2671 Luke 20:36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

    2672 Luke 20:37 Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

    2673 Luke 20:38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.

    2674 Luke 20:39 Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast well said.

    2675 Luke 20:40 And after that they durst not ask him any question at all.

  485. PHARISEES: WHICH IS THE GREAT COMMANDMENT?     Matthew 22:34-40*, Mark 12:28-34*
  486. 0762 Matt 22:34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

    0763 Matt 22:35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

    0764 Matt 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

    0765 Matt 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

    0766 Matt 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.

    0767 Matt 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

    0768 Matt 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


    1557 Mark 12:28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?

    1558 Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

    1559 Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

    1560 Mark 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

    1561 Mark 12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:

    1562 Mark 12:33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

    1563 Mark 12:34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

  487. JESUS: HOW IS THE CHRIST DAVID'S SON?     Matthew 22:41-46*, Mark 12:35-37, Luke 20:41-44
  488. 0769 Matt 22:41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,

    0770 Matt 22:42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.

    0771 Matt 22:43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,

    0772 Matt 22:44 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?

    0773 Matt 22:45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?

    0774 Matt 22:46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.


    1564 Mark 12:35 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?

    1565 Mark 12:36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

    1566 Mark 12:37 David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.


    2676 Luke 20:41 And he said unto them, How say they that Christ is David's son?

    2677 Luke 20:42 And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

    2678 Luke 20:43 Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

    2679 Luke 20:44 David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?

  489. WOES UPON THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES     Matthew 23:1-36*, Mark 12:38-40, Luke 20:45-47*
  490. 0775 Matt 23:1  Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

    0776 Matt 23:2  Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:

    0777 Matt 23:3  All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

    0778 Matt 23:4  For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

    0779 Matt 23:5  But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,

    0780 Matt 23:6  And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,

    0781 Matt 23:7  And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

    0782 Matt 23:8  But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

    0783 Matt 23:9  And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

    0784 Matt 23:10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

    0785 Matt 23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

    0786 Matt 23:12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

    0787 Matt 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

    0788 Matt 23:14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

    0789 Matt 23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

    0790 Matt 23:16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

    0791 Matt 23:17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

    0792 Matt 23:18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.

    0793 Matt 23:19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?

    0794 Matt 23:20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.

    0795 Matt 23:21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.

    0796 Matt 23:22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.

    0797 Matt 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

    0798 Matt 23:24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

    0799 Matt 23:25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

    0800 Matt 23:26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

    0801 Matt 23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

    0802 Matt 23:28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

    0803 Matt 23:29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

    0804 Matt 23:30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

    0805 Matt 23:31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.

    0806 Matt 23:32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

    0807 Matt 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

    0808 Matt 23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:

    0809 Matt 23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

    0810 Matt 23:36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.


    1567 Mark 12:38 And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,

    1568 Mark 12:39 And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:

    1569 Mark 12:40 Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.


    2680 Luke 20:45 Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples,

    2681 Luke 20:46 Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;

    2682 Luke 20:47 Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.

  491. THIRD LAMENT OVER JERUSALEM     Matthew 23:37-39
  492. 0811 Matt 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

    0812 Matt 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

    0813 Matt 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

  493. POOR WIDOW GIVES TWO MITES     Mark 12:41-44, Luke 21:1-4*
  494. 1570 Mark 12:41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.

    1571 Mark 12:42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.

    1572 Mark 12:43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:

    1573 Mark 12:44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.


    2683 Luke 21:1  And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.

    2684 Luke 21:2  And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.

    2685 Luke 21:3  And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:

    2686 Luke 21:4  For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

  495. A VOICE FROM HEAVEN     John 12:20-36
  496. 3456 John 12:20 And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast:

    3457 John 12:21 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.

    3458 John 12:22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.

    3459 John 12:23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.

    3460 John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

    3461 John 12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

    3462 John 12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

    3463 John 12:27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

    3464 John 12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

    3465 John 12:29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.

    3466 John 12:30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.

    3467 John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

    3468 John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

    3469 John 12:33 This he said, signifying what death he should die.

    3470 John 12:34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?

    3471 John 12:35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

    3472 John 12:36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

  497. BLINDNESS AND HARDENED HEARTS     John 12:37-43
  498. 3473 John 12:37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:

    3474 John 12:38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?

    3475 John 12:39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,

    3476 John 12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

    3477 John 12:41 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

    3478 John 12:42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

    3479 John 12:43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

  499. DESTRUCTION OF TEMPLE FORETOLD     Matthew 24:1-2*, Mark 13:1-2*, Luke 21:5-6
  500. 0814 Matt 24:1  And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

    0815 Matt 24:2  And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.


    1574 Mark 13:1  And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!

    1575 Mark 13:2  And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.


    2687 Luke 21:5  And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,

    2688 Luke 21:6  As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

  501. EVENING WITHDRAWAL TO MOUNT OF OLIVES     Luke 21:37*
  502. 2719 Luke 21:37 And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.

  503. OLIVET DISCOURSE 1: FALSE TEACHERS     Matthew 24:3-5, Mark 13:3-6, Luke 21:7-8
  504. 0816 Matt 24:3  And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

    0817 Matt 24:4  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

    0818 Matt 24:5  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.


    1576 Mark 13:3  And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,

    1577 Mark 13:4  Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?

    1578 Mark 13:5  And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:

    1579 Mark 13:6  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.


    2689 Luke 21:7  And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?

    2690 Luke 21:8  And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

  505. OLIVET DISCOURSE 2: THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS     Matthew 24:6-8, Mark 13:7-8, Luke 21:9-11
  506. 0819 Matt 24:6  And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

  524. 0850 Matt 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    0851 Matt 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

    0852 Matt 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

    0853 Matt 24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    0854 Matt 24:41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.


    2533 Luke 17:26 [And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

    2534 Luke 17:27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

    2535 Luke 17:28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

    2536 Luke 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

    2537 Luke 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

    2538 Luke 17:31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

    2539 Luke 17:32 Remember Lot's wife.

    2540 Luke 17:33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

  525. OLIVET DISCOURSE 12: WATCHFULNESS URGED     Matthew 24:42-44*, Mark 13:33-37, Luke 21:34-36
  526. 0855 Matt 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

    0856 Matt 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

    0857 Matt 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.


    1606 Mark 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

    1607 Mark 13:34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

    1608 Mark 13:35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

    1609 Mark 13:36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

    1610 Mark 13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.


    2716 Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

    2717 Luke 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

    2718 Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

    0859 Matt 24:46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

    0860 Matt 24:47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

    0861 Matt 24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

    0862 Matt 24:49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

    0863 Matt 24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

    0864 Matt 24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

  529. OLIVET DISCOURSE 14: WATCH PARABLE 2: THE TEN VIRGINS     Matthew 25:1-13
  530. 0865 Matt 25:1  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

    0866 Matt 25:2  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

    0867 Matt 25:3  They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

    0868 Matt 25:4  But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

    0869 Matt 25:5  While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

    0870 Matt 25:6  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

    0871 Matt 25:7  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

    0872 Matt 25:8  And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

    0873 Matt 25:9  But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

    0874 Matt 25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

    0875 Matt 25:11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

    0876 Matt 25:12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

    0877 Matt 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

  531. OLIVET DISCOURSE 15: WATCH PARABLE 3: THE TALENTS     Matthew 25:14-30
  532. 0878 Matt 25:14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

    0879 Matt 25:15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

    0880 Matt 25:16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.

    0881 Matt 25:17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.

    0882 Matt 25:18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.

    0883 Matt 25:19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

    0884 Matt 25:20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

    0885 Matt 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

    0886 Matt 25:22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.

    0887 Matt 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

    0888 Matt 25:24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

    0889 Matt 25:25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

    0890 Matt 25:26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

    0891 Matt 25:27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

    0892 Matt 25:28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

    0893 Matt 25:29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

    0894 Matt 25:30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

  533. OLIVET DISCOURSE 16: WATCH PARABLE 4: THE SHEEP AND THE GOATS     Matthew 25:31-46
  534. 0895 Matt 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

    0896 Matt 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

    0897 Matt 25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

    0898 Matt 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

    0899 Matt 25:35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

    0900 Matt 25:36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

    0901 Matt 25:37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

    0902 Matt 25:38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

    0903 Matt 25:39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

    0904 Matt 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

    0905 Matt 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

    0906 Matt 25:42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

    0907 Matt 25:43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

    0908 Matt 25:44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

    0909 Matt 25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

    0910 Matt 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

  535. SANHEDRIN MEMBERS DISCUSS DEATH PLOT     Matthew 26:1-5*, Mark 14:1-2, Luke 22:1-2
  536. 0911 Matt 26:1  And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,

    0912 Matt 26:2  Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.

    0913 Matt 26:3  Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,

    0914 Matt 26:4  And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.

    0915 Matt 26:5  But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.


    1611 Mark 14:1  After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death.

    1612 Mark 14:2  But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people.

    2746 Luke 22:26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

    2747 Luke 22:27 For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.

    2748 Luke 22:28 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.

    2749 Luke 22:29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

    2750 Luke 22:30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

    3488 John 13:2  And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;

    3489 John 13:3  Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

    3490 John 13:4  He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

    3491 John 13:5  After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.

    3492 John 13:6  Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?

    3493 John 13:7  Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

    3494 John 13:8  Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

    3495 John 13:9  Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

    3496 John 13:10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

    3497 John 13:11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

    3498 John 13:12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?

    3499 John 13:13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

    3500 John 13:14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.

    3501 John 13:15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

    3502 John 13:16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

    3503 John 13:17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

    3504 John 13:18 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.

    3505 John 13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.

    3506 John 13:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

    0932 Matt 26:22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?

    0933 Matt 26:23 And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.

    0934 Matt 26:24 The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.

    3509 John 13:23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.

    3510 John 13:24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.

    3511 John 13:25 He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?

    3512 John 13:26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

    3514 John 13:28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.

    3515 John 13:29 For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

    3516 John 13:30 He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.

    2753 Luke 22:33 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.

    2754 Luke 22:34 And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.


    3523 John 13:37 Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.

    3527 John 14:3  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

    3528 John 14:4  And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

    3529 John 14:5  Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

    3530 John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    3534 John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

    3535 John 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

    3536 John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

    3547 John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

    3548 John 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

    3549 John 14:25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

    3551 John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

    3552 John 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

    3553 John 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

    3554 John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

    2757 Luke 22:37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

    3558 John 15:3  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

    3559 John 15:4  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

    3560 John 15:5  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

    3567 John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

    3568 John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

    3569 John 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

    3570 John 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

    3571 John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

    3572 John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

  575. FAREWELL DISCOURSE 3: THE WORLD HATETH     John 15:18-16:3
  576. 3573 John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

    3574 John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

    3575 John 15:20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

    3576 John 15:21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.

    3577 John 15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.

    3578 John 15:23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

    3579 John 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.

    3580 John 15:25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

    3581 John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

    3582 John 15:27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

    3583 John 16:1  These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.

    3584 John 16:2  They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

    3585 John 16:3  And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

  577. FAREWELL DISCOURSE 4: CONVICTION AND PERSONALITY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT     John 16:4-15
  578. 3586 John 16:4  But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.

    3587 John 16:5  But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?

    3588 John 16:6  But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.

    3589 John 16:7  Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

    3590 John 16:8  And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

    3591 John 16:9  Of sin, because they believe not on me;

    3592 John 16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

    3593 John 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

    3594 John 16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

    3595 John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

    3596 John 16:14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

    3597 John 16:15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

  579. FAREWELL DISCOURSE 5: SORROW INTO JOY     John 16:16-24
  580. 3598 John 16:16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.

    3599 John 16:17 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?

    3600 John 16:18 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.

    3601 John 16:19 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye inquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?

    3602 John 16:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

    3603 John 16:21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.

    3604 John 16:22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

    3605 John 16:23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

    3606 John 16:24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

  581. FAREWELL DISCOURSE 6: PLAIN TEACHING     John 16:25-30
  582. 3607 John 16:25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.

    3608 John 16:26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:

    3609 John 16:27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

    3610 John 16:28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.

    3611 John 16:29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.

    3612 John 16:30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.

  583. PROPHECY OF SCATTERING (PETER'S DENIAL REITERATED)     Matthew 26:31-35*, Mark 14:27-31, John 16:31-33*
  584. 0941 Matt 26:31 Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.

    0942 Matt 26:32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.

    0943 Matt 26:33 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.

    0944 Matt 26:34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

    0945 Matt 26:35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.


    1637 Mark 14:27 And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.

    1638 Mark 14:28 But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.

    1639 Mark 14:29 But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I.

    1640 Mark 14:30 And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.

    1641 Mark 14:31 But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.


    3613 John 16:31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?

    3614 John 16:32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

    3615 John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

  585. PRAYER OF GLORIFICATION     John 17:1-5
  586. 3616 John 17:1  These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

    3617 John 17:2  As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

    3618 John 17:3  And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

    3619 John 17:4  I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

    3620 John 17:5  And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

  587. PRAYER OF INTERCESSION     John 17:6-26
  588. 3621 John 17:6  I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

    3622 John 17:7  Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

    3623 John 17:8  For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

    3624 John 17:9  I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

    3625 John 17:10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

    3626 John 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

    3627 John 17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

    3628 John 17:13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

    3629 John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

    3630 John 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

    3631 John 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

    3632 John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

    3633 John 17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

    3634 John 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

    3635 John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

    3636 John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

    3637 John 17:22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

    3638 John 17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

    3639 John 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

    3640 John 17:25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.

    3641 John 17:26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

    2763 Luke 22:43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

  608. 0965 Matt 26:55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.

  609. TRIAL 1: BEFORE ANNAS (JEWISH)     John 18:13-14, 19-23*
  610. 3654 John 18:13 And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.

    3655 John 18:14 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.

                                        . . .

    3660 John 18:19 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.

    3661 John 18:20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.

    3662 John 18:21 Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.

    3663 John 18:22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?

    3664 John 18:23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?

                                        . . .

    0969 Matt 26:59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;

    0970 Matt 26:60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,

    0971 Matt 26:61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.

    0972 Matt 26:62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

    0973 Matt 26:63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.

    0974 Matt 26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

    0975 Matt 26:65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.

    0976 Matt 26:66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.

    0977 Matt 26:67 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,

    0978 Matt 26:68 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?


    1663 Mark 14:53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.

                                        . . .

    1665 Mark 14:55 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.

    1666 Mark 14:56 For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.

    1667 Mark 14:57 And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,

    1668 Mark 14:58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.

    1669 Mark 14:59 But neither so did their witness agree together.

    1670 Mark 14:60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

    1671 Mark 14:61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?

    1672 Mark 14:62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

    1673 Mark 14:63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?

    1674 Mark 14:64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.

    1675 Mark 14:65 And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.


    2774 Luke 22:54 Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest's house. ...

                                        . . .

    2783 Luke 22:63 And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.

    2784 Luke 22:64 And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?

    2785 Luke 22:65 And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.


    3665 John 18:24 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.

    1664 Mark 14:54 ... and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.

                                        . . .

    1676 Mark 14:66 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest:

    1677 Mark 14:67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.

    1678 Mark 14:68 But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest. ...


    2775 Luke 22:55 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.

    2776 Luke 22:56 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.

    2777 Luke 22:57 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.


    3658 John 18:17 Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not.

  618. 0981 Matt 26:71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.

    0982 Matt 26:72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.


    1678 Mark 14:68 ... And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.

    1679 Mark 14:69 And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.

    1680 Mark 14:70 And he denied it again. ...


    2778 Luke 22:58 And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.

    0984 Matt 26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.

    0985 Matt 26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.


    1680 Mark 14:70 ... And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.

    1681 Mark 14:71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.

    1682 Mark 14:72 And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

    2786 Luke 22:66 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,

    2787 Luke 22:67 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:

    2788 Luke 22:68 And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.

  623. DEITY REAFFIRMED     Luke 22:69-71

    2791 Luke 22:71 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.

  625. TRIAL 4: BEFORE PILATE (ROMAN)     Matthew 27:2, 11-14, Mark 15:1b-5, Luke 23:1-7, John 18:28-38*
  626. 0987 Matt 27:2  And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

                                        . . .

    0996 Matt 27:11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.

    0997 Matt 27:12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.

    0998 Matt 27:13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?

    0999 Matt 27:14 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.


    1683 Mark 15:1  ... and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate.

    1684 Mark 15:2  And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto him, Thou sayest it.

    1685 Mark 15:3  And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.

    1686 Mark 15:4  And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee.

    1687 Mark 15:5  But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.


    2792 Luke 23:1  And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.

    2793 Luke 23:2  And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King.

    2794 Luke 23:3  And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.

    2795 Luke 23:4  Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man.

    2796 Luke 23:5  And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.

    2797 Luke 23:6  When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean.

    2798 Luke 23:7  And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.


    3669 John 18:28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.

    3670 John 18:29 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?

    3671 John 18:30 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.

    3672 John 18:31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:

    3673 John 18:32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die.

    3674 John 18:33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?

    3675 John 18:34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?

    3676 John 18:35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?

    3677 John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

    3678 John 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

    3679 John 18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.

  627. JUDAS' REMORSE AND SUICIDE     Matthew 27:3-10*
  628. 0988 Matt 27:3  Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

    0989 Matt 27:4  Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.

    0990 Matt 27:5  And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

    0991 Matt 27:6  And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.

    0992 Matt 27:7  And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in.

    0993 Matt 27:8  Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.

    0994 Matt 27:9  Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;

    0995 Matt 27:10 And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me.

  629. TRIAL 5: BEFORE HEROD ANTIPAS (ROMAN)     Luke 23:8-12
  630. 2799 Luke 23:8  And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.

    2800 Luke 23:9  Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.

    2801 Luke 23:10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him.

    2802 Luke 23:11 And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.

    2803 Luke 23:12 And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.

  631. TRIAL 6: BEFORE PILATE (ROMAN)     Luke 23:13-16
  632. 2804 Luke 23:13 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people,

    2805 Luke 23:14 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:

    2806 Luke 23:15 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.

    2807 Luke 23:16 I will therefore chastise him, and release him.

  633. BARABBAS RELEASED     Matthew 27:15-26a, Mark 15:6-15a, Luke 23:17-25, John 18:39-40
  634. 1000 Matt 27:15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.

    1001 Matt 27:16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

    1002 Matt 27:17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?

    1003 Matt 27:18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

    1004 Matt 27:19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

    1005 Matt 27:20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

    1006 Matt 27:21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

    1007 Matt 27:22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

    1008 Matt 27:23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

    1009 Matt 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

    1010 Matt 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

    1011 Matt 27:26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: ...


    1688 Mark 15:6  Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.

    1689 Mark 15:7  And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.

    1690 Mark 15:8  And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them.

    1691 Mark 15:9  But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?

    1692 Mark 15:10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.

    1693 Mark 15:11 But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.

    1694 Mark 15:12 And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?

    1695 Mark 15:13 And they cried out again, Crucify him.

    1696 Mark 15:14 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.

    1697 Mark 15:15 And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, ...


    2808 Luke 23:17 (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)

    2809 Luke 23:18 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:

    2810 Luke 23:19 (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)

    2811 Luke 23:20 Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.

    2812 Luke 23:21 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.

    2813 Luke 23:22 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go.

    2814 Luke 23:23 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.

    2815 Luke 23:24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.

    2816 Luke 23:25 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.


    3680 John 18:39 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?

    3681 John 18:40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.

  635. CROWN OF THORNS AND ROBE (SCOURGING AND MOCKING)     Matthew 27:26b-30*, Mark 15:15b-19*, John 19:1-3
  636. 1011 Matt 27:26 ... and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

    1012 Matt 27:27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.

    1013 Matt 27:28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

    1014 Matt 27:29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!

    1015 Matt 27:30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.


    1697 Mark 15:15 ... and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.

    1698 Mark 15:16 And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band.

    1699 Mark 15:17 And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,

    1700 Mark 15:18 And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!

    1701 Mark 15:19 And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.

    3686 John 19:5  Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

    3687 John 19:6  When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.

    3688 John 19:7  The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

    3689 John 19:8  When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;

    3690 John 19:9  And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.

    3691 John 19:10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?

    3692 John 19:11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.

    3693 John 19:12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.

    3694 John 19:13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.

    3695 John 19:14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

    3696 John 19:15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.

    3697 John 19:16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. ...

    3731 John 20:8  Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.

    3732 John 20:9  For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.

    3733 John 20:10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.

  691. RESURRECTION 7: APPEARANCE TO MARY MAGDALENE UPON REVISITING THE TOMB     Mark 16:9, John 20:11-17
  692. 1738 Mark 16:9  Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.


    3734 John 20:11 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,

    3735 John 20:12 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

    3736 John 20:13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.

    3737 John 20:14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.

    3738 John 20:15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.

    3739 John 20:16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.

    3740 John 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

  693. RESURRECTION 8: APPEARANCE TO THE OTHER WOMEN EN ROUTE TO THE DISCIPLES     Matthew 28:9-10*
  694. 1060 Matt 28:9  And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.

    1061 Matt 28:10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

  695. RESURRECTION 9: CHIEF PRIESTS PAY ROMAN GUARDS TO SPREAD FALSEHOOD     Matthew 28:11-15*
  696. 1062 Matt 28:11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.

    1063 Matt 28:12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,

    1064 Matt 28:13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.

    1065 Matt 28:14 And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.

    1066 Matt 28:15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

  697. RESURRECTION 10: MARY MAGDALENE REPORTS APPEARANCE     Mark 16:10-11, John 20:18
  698. 1739 Mark 16:10 And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.

    1740 Mark 16:11 And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.


    3741 John 20:18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.

  699. RESURRECTION 11: THE OTHER WOMEN REPORT APPEARANCE     Luke 24:9-11
  700. 2856 Luke 24:9  And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.

    2857 Luke 24:10 It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.

    2858 Luke 24:11 And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.

  701. RESURRECTION 12: RAISED SAINTS SEEN IN JERUSALEM     Matthew 27:52-53
  702. 1037 Matt 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

    1038 Matt 27:53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

  703. RESURRECTION 13: APPEARANCE TO PETER     [Luke 24:34]
  704. 2881 Luke 24:34 [Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.]

  705. RESURRECTION 14: APPEARANCE TO THE EMMAUS DISCIPLES     Mark 16:12*, Luke 24:13-32*
  706. 1741 Mark 16:12 After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.


    2860 Luke 24:13 And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.

    2861 Luke 24:14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.

    2862 Luke 24:15 And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.

    2863 Luke 24:16 But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.

    2864 Luke 24:17 And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?

    2865 Luke 24:18 And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?

    2866 Luke 24:19 And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:

    2867 Luke 24:20 And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.

    2868 Luke 24:21 But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.

    2869 Luke 24:22 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;

    2870 Luke 24:23 And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.

    2871 Luke 24:24 And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.

    2872 Luke 24:25 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:

    2873 Luke 24:26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?

    2874 Luke 24:27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

    2875 Luke 24:28 And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.

    2876 Luke 24:29 But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.

    2877 Luke 24:30 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.

    2878 Luke 24:31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

    2879 Luke 24:32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

  707. RESURRECTION 15: EMMAUS DISCIPLES REPORT TO THE ELEVEN (INCLUDING MATTHIAS, PETER ABSENT)     Mark 16:13, Luke 24:33-35*
  708. 1742 Mark 16:13 And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.


    2880 Luke 24:33 And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,

    2881 Luke 24:34 Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.

    2882 Luke 24:35 And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

  709. RESURRECTION 16: APPEARANCE TO THE ELEVEN (INCLUDING MATTHIAS, THOMAS ABSENT)     Mark 16:14, Luke 24:36-48*, John 20:19-23*
  710. 1743 Mark 16:14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.


    2883 Luke 24:36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

    2884 Luke 24:37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.

    2885 Luke 24:38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

    2886 Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

    2887 Luke 24:40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.

    2888 Luke 24:41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?

    2889 Luke 24:42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.

    2890 Luke 24:43 And he took it, and did eat before them.

    2891 Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

    2892 Luke 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

    2893 Luke 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

    2894 Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

    2895 Luke 24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.


    3742 John 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

    3743 John 20:20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.

    3744 John 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

    3745 John 20:22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

    3746 John 20:23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

  711. RESURRECTION 17: THOMAS DOUBTS     John 20:24-25
  712. 3747 John 20:24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.

    3748 John 20:25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

  713. APPEARANCE TO THOMAS     John 20:26-29*
  714. 3749 John 20:26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

    3750 John 20:27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

    3751 John 20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

    3752 John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

  715. APPEARANCE AT MIRACULOUS CATCH OF 153 FISH     John 21:1-14*
  716. 3755 John 21:1  After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.

    3756 John 21:2  There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.

    3757 John 21:3  Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.

    3758 John 21:4  But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.

    3759 John 21:5  Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.

    3760 John 21:6  And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.

    3761 John 21:7  Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.

    3762 John 21:8  And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.

    3763 John 21:9  As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.

    3764 John 21:10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.

    3765 John 21:11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.

    3766 John 21:12 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.

    3767 John 21:13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.

    3768 John 21:14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.

  717. PETER RESTORED     John 21:15-23*
  718. 3769 John 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

    3770 John 21:16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

    3771 John 21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

    3772 John 21:18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

    3773 John 21:19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.

    3774 John 21:20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?

    3775 John 21:21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?

    3776 John 21:22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.

    3777 John 21:23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?

  719. THE GREAT COMMISSION     Matthew 28:16-20*, Mark 16:15-18
  720. 1067 Matt 28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

    1068 Matt 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.

    1069 Matt 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

    1070 Matt 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

    1071 Matt 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


    1744 Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

    1745 Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

    1746 Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

    1747 Mark 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

  721. TARRY IN JERUSALEM     Luke 24:49
  722. 2896 Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

  723. THE ASCENSION     Mark 16:19-20*, Luke 24:50-53
  724. 1748 Mark 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

    1749 Mark 16:20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.


    2897 Luke 24:50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.

    2898 Luke 24:51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.

    2899 Luke 24:52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:

    2900 Luke 24:53 And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.

  725. PURPOSE AND CONCLUSION OF JOHN     John 20:30-31, 21:24-25
  726. 3753 John 20:30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:

    3754 John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

                                        . . .

    3778 John 21:24 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.

    3779 John 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
