To forgive sins
And stepping into a boat, He crossed over and came to His 1aown
behold, they brought to Him a paralytic, lying on a bed. And Jesus, 1seeing
, said to the paralytic, Take ccourage
, child; your 2sins
And behold, some of the 1scribes
said within themselves, This man 2ablasphemes
And Jesus, 1aknowing
, said, Why are you bthinking
evil things in your hearts?
For which is 1easier
, to say, Your sins are forgiven, or to say, 2Rise
But that you may know that the aSon
of Man has 1authority
on earth to bforgive
sins — then He said to the paralytic, Rise, 2ctake
up your bed and 3go
to your house.
And he 1rose
and went away to his house.
And when the crowds saw this,
God, who had given such authority to men.
Rejoicing with the sinners
as Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man sitting at the tax office, called 1bMatthew
, and He said to him, 2cFollow
Me. And he rose and 3followed
And as He was reclining at table
in the 1house
, behold, many 2atax
collectors and bsinners
came and reclined together with Jesus and His disciples.
And when the 1Pharisees
they said to His disciples, 2Why
does your Teacher eat with the tax collectors and sinners?
Now when He heard this,
He said, Those who are strong have no need of a 1physician
, but those who are 2ill
But go and 1learn
"I desire 2mercy
and not bsacrifice
,'' for I did not come to call the 3crighteous
, but dsinners
Being incompatible with religion
of John came to Him, saying, 1Why
do we and the Pharisees 2cfast 3much
, but Your ddisciples
And Jesus said to them, The 1sons
of the bridechamber cannot mourn as long as the 2abridegroom
is with them, can they? But bdays
will come when the bridegroom will be 3taken
away from them, and then they will cfast
No one puts a patch of 1unfulled
cloth on an 2old
garment, for that which fills it up pulls away from the garment, and a worse tear is made.
Neither do they put 1new
wine into 2aold
wineskins; otherwise, the wineskins burst, and the wine pours out, and the wineskins are ruined; but they put new wine into 3bfresh
wineskins, and both are preserved.
Signs with dispensational significance repeated
He was speaking these things to them, behold, a 2ruler
came and bworshipped
Him, saying, My daughter has just died, but come and lay Your hand on her, and she will live.
And Jesus rose and followed him, and so did
And behold, a woman who had been suffering from a 1ahemorrhage
from behind and touched the 4bfringe
of His garment,
For she said within herself, If only I atouch
His garment, 1I
will be 2healed
And Jesus, turning and seeing her, said, Take acourage
, daughter; your bfaith
has healed you. And the woman was healed from that hour.
And when Jesus came to the ruler's 1house
and saw the flute players and the crowd making a commotion,
He said, Depart, for the girl has not died but is asleeping
. And they laughed scornfully at Him.
But when the 1crowd
had been aput
out, He entered and btook
hold of her hand, and the girl 2rose
And this areport
went out into all that land.
as Jesus passed on from there, two 1blind
men followed Him, crying out and saying, Have mercy on us, 2bSon
And when He came into the 1house
, the blind men came to Him; and Jesus said to them, Do you believe that I am able to do this? They said to Him, Yes, Lord.
Then He atouched
their eyes, saying, According to your bfaith
, let it be cdone
And their 1aeyes
were opened. And Jesus sternly charged them saying, bSee
that no one knows!
But they went out and aspread
reports about Him in all that land.
And as they were going out, behold, they brought to Him a 1adumb
man possessed with a demon.
And when the demon was cast out, the dumb man 1aspoke
. And the crowds marveled, saying, Never has anything
like this been bseen
But the Pharisees said, By the 1aruler
of the demons He casts out the demons.
The enlargement of the ministry
The need of shepherding and reaping
And Jesus went about all the cities and the avillages
in their synagogues and preaching the 1gospel
of the kingdom and healing 2every
disease and every sickness.
And seeing the crowds, He was moved with acompassion
for them, because they were 1harassed
and cast away like 2bsheep
not having a shepherd.
Then He said to His disciples, The 1aharvest
