The Mission of John the Baptist
(Isaiah 40:1-5; Matthew 3:1-12; Luke 3:1-20; John 1:19-28)
1The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
2As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare
thy way before thee.
3The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
4John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
5And 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. 6And 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; 7And preached,
saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to
stoop down and unloose. 8I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the
Holy Ghost.
The Baptism of Jesus
(Matthew 3:13-17; Luke 3:21-22; John 1:29-34)
9And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of
John in Jordan. 10And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and
the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: 11And there came a voice from heaven, [saying], Thou
art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
The Temptation of Jesus
(Matthew 4:1-11; Luke 4:1-13)
12And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness. 13And he was there in the wilderness
forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
Jesus Preaches in Galilee
(Isaiah 9:1-7; Matthew 4:12-17; Luke 4:14-15)
14Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the
kingdom of God, 15And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye,
and believe the gospel.
Jesus Calls His First Disciples
(Matthew 4:18-22; Matthew 13:47-52; Luke 5:1-11; John 1:35-42)
16Now 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. 17And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you
to become fishers of men. 18And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him. 19And
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. 20And straightway he called them: and they
left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.
Jesus Expels an Evil Spirit
(Luke 4:31-37)
21And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the
synagogue, and taught. 22And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one
that had authority, and not as the scribes. 23And there was in their synagogue a man with an
unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24Saying, 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.
25And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. 26And when the unclean
spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27And 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. 28And
immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
Jesus Heals at Peter's House
(Matthew 8:14-17; Luke 4:38-41)
29And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon
and Andrew, with James and John. 30But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they
tell him of her. 31And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the
fever left her, and she ministered unto them.
32And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that
were possessed with devils. 33And all the city was gathered together at the door. 34And 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.
Jesus Prays and Preaches
(Luke 4:42-44)
35And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary
place, and there prayed. 36And Simon and they that were with him followed after him. 37And when
they had found him, they said unto him, All [men] seek for thee. 38And he said unto them, Let us
go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth. 39And he
preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.
The Leper's Prayer
(Leviticus 14:1-32; Matthew 8:1-4; Luke 5:12-16)
40And 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. 41And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth [his] hand,
and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. 42And as soon as he had spoken,
immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. 43And he straitly charged him,
and forthwith sent him away; 44And 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. 45But 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.

Jesus Heals a Paralytic
(Matthew 9:1-8; Luke 5:17-26)
1And again he entered into Capernaum, after [some] days; and it was noised that he was in the
house. 2And 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. 3And
they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four. 4And 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. 5When Jesus saw their
faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. 6But there were certain of
the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, 7Why doth this [man] thus speak
blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only? 8And 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? 9Whether 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? 10But that ye may know that the Son of man hath
power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,) 11I say unto thee, Arise, and take
up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. 12And 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.
Jesus Calls Levi
(Matthew 9:9-13; Luke 5:27-32)
13And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught
14And 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.
15And 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. 16And 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? 17When 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.
Jesus Questioned about Fasting
(Matthew 9:14-15; Luke 5:33-35)
18And 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? 19And 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. 20But the days will come, when the
bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.
The Patches and Wineskins
(Matthew 9:16-17; Luke 5:36-39)
21No 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. 22And 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.
The Lord of the Sabbath
(1 Samuel 21:1-9; Matthew 12:1-8; Luke 6:1-5)
23And 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. 24And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do
they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful? 25And 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? 26How
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? 27And
he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: 28Therefore the
Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

Jesus Heals on the Sabbath
(Matthew 12:9-14; Luke 6:6-11)
1And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.
2And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse
him. 3And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth. 4And 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. 5And 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. 6And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway
took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
Great Crowds Follow Jesus
7But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee
followed him, and from Judaea, 8And 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. 9And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him
because of the multitude, lest they should throng him. 10For he had healed many; insomuch that
they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues. 11And unclean spirits, when they
saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. 12And he straitly
charged them that they should not make him known.
The Twelve Apostles
(Matthew 10:1-4; Luke 6:12-16)
13And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth [unto him] whom he would: and they came unto
him. 14And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to
preach, 15And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils: 16And Simon he surnamed
Peter; 17And James the [son] of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them
Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder: 18And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and
Matthew, and Thomas, and James the [son] of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the
Canaanite, 19And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
A House Divided
(Matthew 12:22-30; Luke 11:14-23)
20And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. 21And
when his friends heard [of it], they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.
22And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of
the devils casteth he out devils. 23And he called them [unto him], and said unto them in parables,
How can Satan cast out Satan? And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot
stand. 25And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26And if Satan rise up
against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. 27No 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.
The Unpardonable Sin
(Matthew 12:31-32)
28Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith
soever they shall blaspheme: 29But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never
forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: 30Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
Jesus' Mother and Brothers
(Matthew 12:46-50; Luke 8:19-21)
31There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him.
32And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren
without seek for thee. 33And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
34And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my
brethren! 35For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and

The Parable of the Sower
(Matthew 13:1-9; Luke 8:4-15)
1And 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. 2And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine, 3Hearken;
Behold, there went out a sower to sow: 4And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way
side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. 5And some fell on stony ground, where it
had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: 6But when
the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. 7And some fell
among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. 8And 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. 9And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him
The Purpose of Jesus' Parables
(Matthew 13:10-17)
10And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.
11And 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: 12That 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.
The Parable of the Sower Explained
(Matthew 13:18-23)
13And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables? 14The
sower soweth the word. 15And 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. 16And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have
heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; 17And 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. 18And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear
the word, 19And 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. 20And 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.
The Lesson of the Lamp
(Luke 8:16-18)
21And 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? 22For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any
thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. 23If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
24And 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. 25For he that hath, to him shall be
given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.
The Seed Growing Secretly
26And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; 27And
should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not
how. 28For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full
corn in the ear. 29But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because
the harvest is come.
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
(Matthew 13:31-32; Luke 13:18-19)
30And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we
compare it? 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: 32But 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.
33And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear [it]. 34But
without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to
his disciples.
Jesus Stills the Storm
(Matthew 8:23-27; Luke 8:22-25)
35And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other
side. 36And 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. 37And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves
beat into the ship, so that it was now full. 38And 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? 39And he
arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and
there was a great calm. 40And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no
faith? 41And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that
even the wind and the sea obey him?

Demons Cast into Pigs
(Matthew 8:28-34; Luke 8:26-39)
1And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. 2And when
he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean
spirit, 3Who had [his] dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
4Because 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. 5And always,
night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
6But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, 7And 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. 8For he said unto him, Come out of the man, [thou] unclean spirit. 9And
he asked him, What [is] thy name? And he answered, saying, My name [is] Legion: for we are
many. 10And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. 11Now
there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. 12And all the devils
besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13And 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
14And 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. 15And 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.
16And they that saw [it] told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and
[also] concerning the swine. 17And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts. 18And
when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he
might be with him. 19Howbeit 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.
20And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him:
and all [men] did marvel.
The Healing Touch of Jesus
(Matthew 9:18-26; Luke 8:40-56)
21And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto
him: and he was nigh unto the sea. 22And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the
synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, 23And 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. 24And [Jesus] went with him; and much people
followed him, and thronged him.
25And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, 26And had suffered many things
of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew
worse, 27When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. 28For
she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. 29And straightway the fountain of her
blood was dried up; and she felt in [her] body that she was healed of that plague. 30And Jesus,
immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and
said, Who touched my clothes? 31And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude
thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 32And he looked round about to see her that
had done this thing. 33But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came
and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 34And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith
hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
35While 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? 36As soon as Jesus heard the word
that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. 37And he
suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38And he
cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and
wailed greatly. 39And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and
weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. 40And 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. 41And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto
her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. 42And straightway
the damsel arose, and walked; for she was [of the age] of twelve years. And they were astonished
with a great astonishment. 43And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and
commanded that something should be given her to eat.

Jesus Rejected at Nazareth
(Isaiah 61:1-11; Matthew 2:19-23; Matthew 13:53-58; Luke 2:39-40; Luke 4:16-30)
1And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him. 2And
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? 3Is 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. 4But 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. 5And he
could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed
[them]. 6And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages,
The Ministry of the Twelve
(Matthew 10:5-15; Luke 9:1-6)
7And he called [unto him] the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave
them power over unclean spirits; 8And commanded them that they should take nothing for [their]
journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in [their] purse: 9But [be] shod with
sandals; and not put on two coats. 10And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an
house, there abide till ye depart from that place. 11And 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. 12And they went out, and preached that men should repent. 13And they cast out
many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed [them].
The Beheading of John
(Matthew 14:1-12; Luke 9:7-9)
14And 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.
15Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.
16But when Herod heard [thereof], he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the
17For 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. 18For John had said unto Herod, It is not
lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife. 19Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and
would have killed him; but she could not: 20For 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. 21And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his
lords, high captains, and chief [estates] of Galilee; 22And 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. 23And he sware unto her,
Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give [it] thee, unto the half of my kingdom. 24And she
went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the
Baptist. 25And 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. 26And the king was exceeding sorry;
[yet] for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her. 27And
immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went
and beheaded him in the prison, 28And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel:
and the damsel gave it to her mother. 29And when his disciples heard [of it], they came and took
up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.
The Feeding of the Five Thousand
(Matthew 14:13-21; Luke 9:10-17; John 6:1-15)
30And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what
they had done, and what they had taught. 31And 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. 32And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
33And 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. 34And 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. 35And 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: 36Send
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. 37He 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? 38He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew,
they say, Five, and two fishes. 39And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies
upon the green grass. 40And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties. 41And 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. 42And they did all eat, and were filled. 43And they took up twelve baskets full of the
fragments, and of the fishes. 44And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
Jesus Walks on Water
(Matthew 14:22-33; John 6:16-25)
45And 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. 46And when he had sent them away, he
departed into a mountain to pray.
47And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. 48And
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. 49But
when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out: 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. 51And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind
ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. 52For they
considered not [the miracle] of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.
Jesus Heals at Gennesaret
(Matthew 14:34-36)
53And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.
54And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him, 55And ran through that
whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they
heard he was. 56And 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.

Tradition and Vain Worship
(Matthew 15:1-9)
1Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from
Jerusalem. 2And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with
unwashen, hands, they found fault. 3For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash [their]
hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders. 4And [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. 5Then the Pharisees and scribes
asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with
unwashen hands?
6He 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.
7Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.
8For 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.
9And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own
tradition. 10For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or
mother, let him die the death: 11But 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].
12And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; 13Making the word of God of
none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
What Defiles a Man
(Matthew 15:10-20)
14And when he had called all the people [unto him], he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one
[of you], and understand: 15There 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. 16If any man have
ears to hear, let him hear.
17And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the
parable. 18And 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; 19Because it entereth
not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats? 20And he
said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 21For from within, out of the heart
of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22Thefts, covetousness,
wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23All these evil
things come from within, and defile the man.
The Faith of the Syrophoenician Woman
(Matthew 15:21-28)
24And 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. 25For a [certain] woman, whose
young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet: 26The woman
was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil
out of her daughter. 27But 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. 28And she answered and said unto him,
Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs. 29And he said unto her, For
this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter. 30And when she was come to her
house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.
Jesus Heals a Deaf and Mute Man
(Isaiah 35:1-10; Matthew 9:32-34)
31And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through
the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. 32And 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. 33And he took him
aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue;
34And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. 35And
straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.
36And 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]; 37And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath
done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

The Feeding of the Four Thousand
(Matthew 15:29-39)
1In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples
[unto him], and saith unto them, 2I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now
been with me three days, and have nothing to eat: 3And if I send them away fasting to their own
houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far. 4And his disciples answered
him, From whence can a man satisfy these [men] with bread here in the wilderness? 5And he
asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven. 6And 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. 7And they had a few
small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before [them]. 8So they did eat,
and were filled: and they took up of the broken [meat] that was left seven baskets. 9And they that
had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away. 10And straightway he entered into a
ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.
The Pharisees Seek a Sign
(Matthew 16:1-4; Luke 12:54-56)
11And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from
heaven, tempting him. 12And 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. 13And he
left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.
Leaven of the Pharisees and Herod
(Matthew 16:5-12)
14Now [the disciples] had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than
one loaf. 15And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and
[of] the leaven of Herod. 16And they reasoned among themselves, saying, [It is] because we have
no bread. 17And 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? 18Having eyes,
see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? 19When I brake the five
loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him,
Twelve. 20And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye
up? And they said, Seven. 21And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?
A Blind Man Healed at Bethsaida
22And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch
him. 23And 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. And he looked up, and
said, I see men as trees, walking. 25After that he put [his] hands again upon his eyes, and made
him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. 26And he sent him away to his
house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell [it] to any in the town.
Peter's Confession of Christ
(Matthew 16:13-20; Luke 9:18-20; John 6:66-71)
27And 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? 28And they answered, John
the Baptist: but some [say], Elias; and others, One of the prophets. 29And he saith unto them, But
whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ. 30And he
charged them that they should tell no man of him.
Jesus Predicts His Death and Resurrection
(Matthew 16:21-23; Luke 9:21-22)
31And 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.
32And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him. 33But 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.
Take up Your Cross
(Matthew 10:37-39; Matthew 16:24-28; Luke 9:23-27)
34And 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. 35For
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. 36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul? 37Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38Whosoever
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

The Transfiguration
(Matthew 17:1-13; Luke 9:28-36; 2 Peter 1:16-21)
1And 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.
2And 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. 3And his raiment
became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. 4And there
appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. 5And 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. 6For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid. 7And
there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my
beloved Son: hear him. 8And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any
more, save Jesus only with themselves.
9And 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. 10And they kept that saying
with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean. 11And
they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? 12And 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. 13But I say unto you, That Elias is
indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.
Jesus Heals a Boy with an Evil Spirit
(Matthew 17:14-21; Luke 9:37-42; Luke 17:5-10)
14And when he came to [his] disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes
questioning with them. 15And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly
amazed, and running to [him] saluted him. 16And he asked the scribes, What question ye with
them? 17And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son,
which hath a dumb spirit; 18And 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. 19He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be
with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me. 20And they brought him unto him: and
when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed
foaming. 21And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a
child. 22And 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. 23Jesus said unto him, If thou canst
believe, all things [are] possible to him that believeth. 24And straightway the father of the child
cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. 25When 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. 26And [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. 27But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose. 28And when he was
come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? 29And he
said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
Jesus Again Foretells Death, Resurrection
(Matthew 17:22-23)
30And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should
know [it]. 31For 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. 32But
they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.
The Greatest in the Kingdom
(Matthew 18:1-6; Luke 9:46-50)
33And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye disputed
among yourselves by the way? 34But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed
among themselves, who [should be] the greatest. 35And 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.
36And 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, 37Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and
whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
Intolerance Rebuked
38And 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. 39But 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.
40For he that is not against us is on our part. 41For 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.
Temptations and Trespasses
(Matthew 18:7-9; Luke 17:1-4)
42And 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. 43And 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: 44Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not
quenched. 45And 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: 46Where their worm
dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 47And 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:
48Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
49For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 50Salt [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.

Jesus' Teaching about Divorce
(Matthew 19:1-12)
1And 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.
2And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away [his] wife?
tempting him. 3And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you? 4And they
said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put [her] away. 5And Jesus answered
and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. 6But from the
beginning of the creation God made them male and female. 7For this cause shall a man leave his
father and mother, and cleave to his wife; 8And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no
more twain, but one flesh. 9What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
10And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same [matter]. 11And he saith unto them,
Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. 12And if a
woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.
Jesus Blesses the Children
(Matthew 19:13-15; Luke 18:15-17)
13And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and [his] disciples rebuked
those that brought [them]. 14But 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. 15Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he
shall not enter therein. 16And he took them up in his arms, put [his] hands upon them, and blessed
The Rich Young Man
(Matthew 19:16-30; Luke 18:18-30)
17And 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? 18And Jesus said unto him,
Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God. 19Thou 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. 20And he answered and said unto him, Master, all
these have I observed from my youth. 21Then 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. 22And he was sad at that
saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches
enter into the kingdom of God! 24And 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! 25It 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. 26And they were astonished out of measure, saying
among themselves, Who then can be saved? 27And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men [it is]
impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
28Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. 29And 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, 30But 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. 31But many [that are]
first shall be last; and the last first.
Third Prediction of Death, Resurrection
(Matthew 20:17-19)
32And 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, 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: 34And 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.
The Request of James and John
(Matthew 20:20-28)
35And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou
shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire. 36And he said unto them, What would ye that I
should do for you? 37They 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. 38But 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?
39And 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: 40But 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
41And when the ten heard [it], they began to be much displeased with James and John. 42But
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.
43But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:
44And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. 45For even the Son of man
came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
Jesus Heals Bartimaeus
(Matthew 20:29-34; Luke 18:35-43)
46And 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. 47And 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. 48And 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. 49And 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. 50And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. 51And 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. 52And 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.

The Triumphal Entry
(Zechariah 9:9-13; Matthew 21:1-11; Luke 19:28-40; John 12:12-19)
1And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he
sendeth forth two of his disciples, 2And 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]. 3And 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. 4And they went their way, and found the colt
tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him. 5And certain of them
that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt? 6And they said unto them even as
Jesus had commanded: and they let them go. 7And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their
garments on him; and he sat upon him. 8And many spread their garments in the way: and others
cut down branches off the trees, and strawed [them] in the way.
9And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed [is] he that
cometh in the name of the Lord:
10Blessed [be] the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in
the highest.
11And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about
upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
Jesus Curses the Fig Tree
(Matthew 21:18-22; Mark 11:20-26)
12And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: 13And 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]. 14And Jesus answered and said
unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard [it].
Jesus Cleanses the Temple
(Matthew 21:12-17; Luke 19:45-48; John 2:12-25)
15And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that
sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of
them that sold doves; 16And would not suffer that any man should carry [any] vessel through the
temple. 17And 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. 18And the scribes and chief priests
heard [it], and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was
astonished at his doctrine.
19And when even was come, he went out of the city.
The Withered Fig Tree
(Matthew 21:18-22; Mark 11:12-14)
20And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. 21And Peter
calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered
away. 22And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23For verily I say unto you, That
whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall
not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he
shall have whatsoever he saith. 24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye
pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them]. 25And when ye stand praying,
forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you
your trespasses. 26But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your
Jesus' Authority Challenged
(Matthew 21:23-27; Luke 20:1-8)
27And 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, 28And say unto him, By what authority doest thou
these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things? 29And 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. 30The baptism of John, was [it] from heaven, or of men? answer me. 31And they
reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not
believe him? 32But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all [men] counted John,
that he was a prophet indeed. 33And 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.

The Parable of the Wicked Tenants
(Matthew 21:33-46; Luke 20:9-18)
1And 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. 2And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a
servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard. 3And they caught
[him], and beat him, and sent [him] away empty. 4And 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. 5And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and
killing some. 6Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them,
saying, They will reverence my son. 7But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the
heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours. 8And they took him, and killed [him],
and cast [him] out of the vineyard. 9What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come
and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
10And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of
the corner:
11This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
12And 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.
Paying Taxes to Caesar
(Matthew 22:15-22; Luke 20:19-26)
13And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in [his]
words. 14And 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? 15Shall 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]. 16And
they brought [it]. And he saith unto them, Whose [is] this image and superscription? And they said
unto him, Caesar's. 17And 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.
Sadducees Question the Resurrection
(Matthew 22:23-33; Luke 20:27-40)
18Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him,
saying, 19Master, 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.
20Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed. 21And the
second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise. 22And the seven had
her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also. 23In the resurrection therefore, when they
shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife. 24And Jesus answering
said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of
God? 25For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but
are as the angels which are in heaven. 26And 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? 27He is not the God of the dead, but the
God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
The Greatest Commandment
(Deuteronomy 6:1-19; Matthew 22:34-40)
28And 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? 29And Jesus answered
him, The first of all the commandments [is], Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30And
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. 31And the second [is] like, [namely] this,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
32And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and
there is none other but he: 33And 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. 34And 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
Whose Son is the Christ?
(Matthew 22:41-46; Luke 20:41-44)
35And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is
the Son of David?
36For 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.
37David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he [then] his son? And the common
people heard him gladly.
Beware of the Scribes
(Luke 20:45-47)
38And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing,
and [love] salutations in the marketplaces, 39And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the
uppermost rooms at feasts: 40Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long
prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
The Poor Widow's Offering
(Luke 21:1-4)
41And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury:
and many that were rich cast in much. 42And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in
two mites, which make a farthing. 43And 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: 44For all [they] did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that
she had, [even] all her living.

Temple Destruction Foretold
(Matthew 24:1-4; Luke 21:5-9)
1And 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]! 2And 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.
3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and
Andrew asked him privately, 4Tell us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign
when all these things shall be fulfilled? 5And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest
any [man] deceive you: 6For many shall come in my name, saying, I am [Christ]; and shall deceive
many. 7And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for [such things]
must needs be; but the end [shall] not [be] yet. 8For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and
troubles: these [are] the beginnings of sorrows.
9But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye
shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony
against them.
Witnessing to All Nations
(Matthew 24:9-14; Luke 21:10-19)
10And the gospel must first be published among all nations. 11But when they shall lead [you], and
deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but
whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy
Ghost. 12Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children
shall rise up against [their] parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. 13And ye shall be
hated of all [men] for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be
The Abomination of Desolation
(Matthew 24:15-25; Luke 21:20-24)
14But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing
where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the
mountains: 15And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter
[therein], to take any thing out of his house: 16And let him that is in the field not turn back again
for to take up his garment. 17But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in
those days! 18And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. 19For [in] those days shall be
affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time,
neither shall be. 20And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved:
but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. 21And then if any man
shall say to you, Lo, here [is] Christ; or, lo, [he is] there; believe [him] not: 22For false Christs and
false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if [it were] possible, even
the elect. 23But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
The Return of the Son of Man
(Matthew 24:26-31; Luke 21:25-28)
24But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give
her light, 25And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
26And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27And
then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the
uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
The lesson of the Fig Tree
(Matthew 24:32-35; Luke 21:29-33)
28Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye
know that summer is near: 29So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass,
know that it is nigh, [even] at the doors. 30Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not
pass, till all these things be done. 31Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not
pass away.
Be Ready at Any Hour
(Genesis 6:1-7; Matthew 24:36-51; Luke 12:35-48)
32But of that day and [that] hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither
the Son, but the Father.
33Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 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. 35Watch 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:
36Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

The Plot to Kill Jesus
(Matthew 26:1-5; Luke 22:1-6; John 11:45-57)
1After 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. 2But they said, Not
on the feast [day], lest there be an uproar of the people.
Jesus Anointed at Bethany
(Matthew 26:6-13; John 12:1-8)
3And 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. 4And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was
this waste of the ointment made? 5For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence,
and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her. 6And Jesus said, Let her alone;
why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. 7For ye have the poor with you always,
and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always. 8She hath done what
she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying. 9Verily 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.
Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus
(Zechariah 11:10-17; Matthew 26:14-16; Matthew 27:3-10)
10And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them.
11And when they heard [it], they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how
he might conveniently betray him.
The Last Supper
(Psalm 41:1-13; Matthew 26:17-25; Luke 22:7-13; John 13:18-30)
12And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him,
Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover? 13And he sendeth
forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man
bearing a pitcher of water: follow him. 14And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of
the house, The Master saith, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my
disciples? 15And he will shew you a large upper room furnished [and] prepared: there make ready
for us. 16And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them:
and they made ready the passover.
17And in the evening he cometh with the twelve. 18And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I
say unto you, One of you which eateth with me shall betray me. 19And they began to be sorrowful,
and to say unto him one by one, [Is] it I? and another [said, Is] it I? 20And he answered and said
unto them, [It is] one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in the dish. 21The Son of man indeed
goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good
were it for that man if he had never been born.
The Lord's Supper Instituted
(Matthew 26:26-30; Luke 22:14-23; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34)
22And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake [it], and gave to them, and said,
Take, eat: this is my body. 23And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave [it] to
them: and they all drank of it. 24And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament,
which is shed for many. 25Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until
that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
26And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
Jesus Predicts Peter's Denial
(Matthew 26:31-35; Luke 22:31-38; John 13:36-38)
27And 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. 28But after that I am risen, I will go
before you into Galilee. 29But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet [will] not I.
30And 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. 31But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die
with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all.
Jesus Prays at Gethsemane
(Matthew 26:36-46; Luke 22:39-46)
32And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye
here, while I shall pray. 33And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore
amazed, and to be very heavy; 34And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death:
tarry ye here, and watch. 35And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if
it were possible, the hour might pass from him. 36And he said, Abba, Father, all things [are]
possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
37And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest
not thou watch one hour? 38Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly [is]
ready, but the flesh [is] weak. 39And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.
40And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist
they what to answer him. 41And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and
take [your] rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands
of sinners. 42Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
Jesus' Betrayal and Arrest
(Matthew 26:47-56; Luke 22:47-53; John 18:1-14)
43And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great
multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. 44And he
that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take
him, and lead [him] away safely. 45And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and
saith, Master, master; and kissed him. 46And they laid their hands on him, and took him. 47And
one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his
ear. 48And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords
and [with] staves to take me? 49I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not:
but the scriptures must be fulfilled. 50And they all forsook him, and fled.
51And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about [his] naked [body];
and the young men laid hold on him: 52And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
Jesus Before the Sanhedrin
(Isaiah 53:1-8; Matthew 26:57-68; John 18:19-24; 1 Peter 2:21-25)
53And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and
the elders and the scribes. 54And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high
priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire. 55And the chief priests and all
the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none. 56For many bare
false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together. 57And there arose certain, and
bare false witness against him, saying, 58We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made
with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands. 59But neither so did
their witness agree together. 60And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying,
Answerest thou nothing? what [is it which] these witness against thee? 61But 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? 62And 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. 63Then the high priest rent his clothes, and
saith, What need we any further witnesses? 64Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And
they all condemned him to be guilty of death. 65And 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.
Peter Denies Jesus
(Matthew 26:69-75; Luke 22:54-62; John 18:15-18)
66And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest: 67And
when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with
Jesus of Nazareth. 68But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest.
And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew. 69And a maid saw him again, and began to say
to them that stood by, This is [one] of them. 70And he denied it again. 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]. 71But he began to curse and to swear, [saying], I know not this man of
whom ye speak. 72And 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.

Jesus Delivered to Pilate
(Matthew 27:1-2)
1And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes
and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried [him] away, and delivered [him] to Pilate.
2And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto him, Thou
sayest [it]. 3And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing. 4And
Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness
against thee. 5But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.
The Crowd Chooses Barabbas
(Matthew 27:15-23; Luke 23:13-25)
6Now at [that] feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired. 7And there
was [one] named Barabbas, [which lay] bound with them that had made insurrection with him,
who had committed murder in the insurrection. 8And the multitude crying aloud began to desire
[him to do] as he had ever done unto them. 9But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I
release unto you the King of the Jews? 10For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for
envy. 11But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.
Pilate Delivers Jesus to Be Crucified
(Matthew 27:24-26)
12And 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? 13And they cried out again, Crucify him. 14Then Pilate said unto them,
Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him. 15And [so]
Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he
had scourged [him], to be crucified.
The Soldiers Mock Jesus
(Isaiah 50:4-11; Matthew 27:27-31; Luke 22:63-65; John 19:1-15)
16And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole
band. 17And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his
[head], 18And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! 19And they smote him on the head with
a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing [their] knees worshipped him. 20And when they had
mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to
crucify him.
The Crucifixion
(Psalm 69:1-36; Matthew 27:32-44; Luke 23:26-43; John 19:16-27)
21And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of
Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
22And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.
23And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received [it] not. 24And when they
had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.
25And it was the third hour, and they crucified him. 26And the superscription of his accusation was
written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
27And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left. 28And
the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors. 29And they
that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the
temple, and buildest [it] in three days, 30Save thyself, and come down from the cross. 31Likewise
also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he
cannot save. 32Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and
believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
The Death of Jesus
(Psalm 22:1-31; Matthew 27:45-56; Luke 23:44-49; John 19:28-30)
33And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
34And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which
is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 35And some of them that
stood by, when they heard [it], said, Behold, he calleth Elias. 36And one ran and filled a spunge full
of vinegar, and put [it] on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias
will come to take him down. 37And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. 38And the
veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. 39And when the centurion, which
stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man
was the Son of God.
40There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the
mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; 41(Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed
him, and ministered unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.
The Burial of Jesus
(Isaiah 53:9-12; Matthew 27:57-61; Luke 23:50-56; John 19:38-42)
42And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the
sabbath, 43Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counseller, which also waited for the kingdom of
God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus. 44And Pilate marvelled if
he were already dead: and calling [unto him] the centurion, he asked him whether he had been
any while dead. 45And when he knew [it] of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph. 46And he
bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre
which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre. 47And Mary
Magdalene and Mary [the mother] of Joses beheld where he was laid.

The Resurrection
(Psalm 16:1-11; Psalm 49:1-20; Matthew 28:1-10; Luke 24:1-12; John 20:1-9)
1And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome,
had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. 2And very early in the morning the
first [day] of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. 3And they said
among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? 4And when
they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. 5And entering into the
sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and
they were affrighted. 6And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which
was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him. 7But go your way,
tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said
unto you. 8And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were
amazed: neither said they any thing to any [man]; for they were afraid.
Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene
(John 20:10-18)
9Now 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. 10[And] she went and told them that had been
with him, as they mourned and wept. 11And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had
been seen of her, believed not.
Jesus Appears to Two Disciples
(Luke 24:13-24)
12After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the
country. 13And they went and told [it] unto the residue: neither believed they them.
The Great Commission
(Matthew 28:16-20)
14Afterward 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. 15And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall
speak with new tongues; 18They 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.
The Ascension
(Luke 24:50-53; Acts 1:6-11)
19So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the
right hand of God. 20And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with
[them], and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
