he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over
all devils, and to cure diseases.
2 And he sent them to preach the
kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.
3 And he said unto them, Take
nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread,
neither money; neither have two coats apiece.
whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.
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.
6 And they
departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every
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
8 And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one
of the old prophets was risen again.
9 And Herod said, John have I
beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see
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
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.
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.
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
14 For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his
disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company.
15 And they did so, and made them all sit down.
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.
they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that
remained to them twelve baskets.
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?
answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say,
that one of the old prophets is risen again.
20 He said unto them, But
whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.
he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing;
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
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.
24 For whosoever
will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake,
the same shall save it.
25 For what is a
man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
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 Fathers, and of the holy angels.
I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of
death, till they see the kingdom of God.
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.
29 And as he prayed,
the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and
30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were
Moses and Elias:
31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease
which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.
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.
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.
34 While he thus spake, there
came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the
35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my
beloved Son: hear him.
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.
it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill,
much people met him.
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.
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.
40 And I
besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.
Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation,
how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.
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
they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they wondered every
one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples,
these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered
into the hands of men.
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.
46 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of
them should be greatest.
47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their
heart, took a child, and set him by him,
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
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
50 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him
not: for he that is not against us is for us.
it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he
stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,
52 And sent messengers
before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to
make ready for him.
53 And they did not receive him, because his face
was as though he would go to Jerusalem.
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?
he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what
manner of spirit ye are of.
56 For the
Son of man is not come to destroy mens lives, but to save them.
And they went to another village.
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.
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.
he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord,
suffer me first to go and bury my father.
60 Jesus said unto him, Let
the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them
farewell, which are at home at my house.
62 And Jesus said unto him, No
man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom
