THE TWELVE APOSTLES CHOSEN

The Lord Jesus resorts to a mountain to pray
MATTHEW 5
1aAnd seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain:
MARK 3
13a And he went up into a mountain,
LUKE 6 [Near Capernaum]
12a And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain
LUKE 6
12b to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

The next day, from his disciples he selects twelve men giving them the title of Apostles [Envoys]*
LUKE 6
13a And when it was day,
MARK 3
13b and called to him whom he would: and they came to him. 14a And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him,
LUKE 6
13b he called his disciples: and he chose twelve from them,
MARK 3
14b so that he might *send them out to preach, 15And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out demons: [*Greek: apostellw]
LUKE 6
13c whom he also named *apostles;
 [*Greek: apostoloV = one who is sent, e.g. an envoy]

The names of the twelve Apostles
MARK 3
16And Simon he surnamed Peter; 17And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, that is, The sons of thunder: 18And Andrew, and Philip, and Bareholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Zealot, 19a And Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him:
LUKE 6 [Near Capernaum]
14Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bareholomew, 15Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes, 16And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, who also was the traitor.
Matthew 10 [Similar topic]
2Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3Philip, and Bareholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
LUKE 6
17And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;18And those who were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed. 19And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for virtue went out of him, and he healed them all.

THE SERMON ON THE MOUNTAIN PLATEAU
MATTHEW 5
1b and when he had sat down, his disciples came to him:
2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
3The poor in spirit: are blest for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
LUKE 6
 
20a And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said,
20b You poor: are blest for yours is the kingdom of God.
4Blessed are those who mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5The meek are blest: for they shall inherit the earth.
6Those who hunger and thirst after righteousness are blest: for they shall be filled.
21bYou who weep now are blest: for you shall laugh.
 
21aYou who hunger now are blest: for you shall be filled.
MATTHEW 5
7The merciful are blest: for they shall obtain mercy. 8The pure in heart are blest: for they shall see God. 9The peacemakers are blest: for they shall be called the children of God. 10Those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake are blest: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
MATTHEW 5
11When men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake: you are blest.
LUKE 6
22When men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake: you are blest.
12Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. 23Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for their fathers did to the prophets in the same manner.
LUKE 6
24But woe to you who are rich! for you have received your consolation. 25Woe to you who are full! for you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now! for you shall mourn and weep. 26Woe to you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so their fathers did to the false prophets.
MATTHEW 5
13You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has lost its savor, how shall it be salted? it is from then on good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. 14You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16Let your light so shine before men, so that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

MATTHEW 5
17Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I have not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say to you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all is fulfilled. 19Who ever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but who ever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I say to you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

MATTHEW 5
21You have heard that it was said by them of old time, You shall not kill; and who ever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22But I say to you, That who ever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and who ever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but who ever shall say, You fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. 23Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has any thing against you; 24Leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be cast into prison. 26Verily I say to you, You shall by no means come out from there till you have paid the last penny.

MATTHEW 5
27You have heard that it was said by them of old time, You shall not commit adultery: 28 But I say to you, That who ever is looking on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart. 29And if your right eye offend you, pluck it out, and cast it from you: for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into hell. 30And if your right hand offend you, cut it off, and cast it from you: for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into hell.

MATTHEW 5
31 It has been said, Whoever puts away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: 32But I say to you, That whoever puts away his wife, except for the cause of fornication, he causes her to be committing adultery: and who ever marries her that is divorced, he is committing adultery.
Matthew 19 [Similar Topic]
9And I say to you, Whoever puts away his wife, except for fornication, and marries another, he is committing adultery: and whoever marries her who is put away, he is committing adultery.

11b whoever puts away his wife, and marries another, he is committing adultery against her. 12And if a woman puts away her husband, and marries another, she is committing adultery.
Luke 16 [Similar Topic]
18Whoever puts away his wife, and marries another, he is committing adultery: and whoever marries her who is put away from her husband, he is committing adultery.
MATTHEW 5
33Again, you have heard that it has been said by them of old time, You shall not forswear yourself, but shall perform to the Lord [Lev.19:12] your oaths: 34But I say to you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: 35Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. 36Neither shall you swear by your head, because you can not make one hair white or black. 37But let your communication be, Yes, yes; No, no: for what ever is more than these comes of evil.
MATTHEW 5
38You have heard that it has been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
MATTHEW 5
39But I say to you, That you do not resist evil: but who ever shall strike you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40And if any man will sue you at the law, and take away your coat, let him have your cloke also.
LUKE 6
29And to him who strikes you on one cheek offer the other also; and he who takes away your cloke do not forbid him to take your coat also.
.MATTHEW 5
41And who ever shall compel you to go a mile, go with him two.
MATTHEW 5
42Give to him who asks you, and from him who would borrow from you do not turn away.
LUKE 6
30 Give to every man that asks of you; and of him who takes away your goods do not ask them again.
Matthew 7 [Similar topic]
12Therefore all things what ever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
LUKE 6
31And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them the same way.
MATTHEW 5
43You have heard that it has been said, You shall love your neighbour, and hate your enemy.
MATTHEW 5
44aBut I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you, and persecute you;
LUKE 6
27But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28Bless those who curse you, and pray for those who despitefully use you.
MATTHEW 5
45That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven: for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
LUKE 6
35b and you shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind to the unthankful and to the evil.
MATTHEW 5
46For if you love them who love you, what reward have you? do not even the publicans the same?
LUKE 6
32For if you love those who love you, what thanks have you? for sinners also love those who love them.
LUKE 6
33And if you do good to those who do good to you, what thanks have you? for even sinners also do the same. 34And if you lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what thanks have you? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
MATTHEW 5
47And if you salute your brothers only, what do you more than others? do not even the publicans so?
LUKE 6
35a But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great,
MATTHEW 5
48Be you therefore perfect, even as your Father who is in heaven is perfect.
LUKE 6
36Therefore be merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
MATTHEW 6
1Take heed that you do not do your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father who is in heaven. 2Therefore when you do your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may have glory of men. Verily I say to you, They have their reward. 3But when you do alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand does: 4So that your alms may be in secret: and your Father who sees in secret himself shall reward you openly.

5And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, so that they may be seen of men. Verily I say to you, They have their reward. 6But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly. 7But when you pray, do not use vain repetitions, as the heathen: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8Therefore do not be like them: for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him.

MATTHEW 6
9Therefor pray after this manner: Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed is your name. 10Your kingdom come. your will be done in earth, as in heaven. 11Give us this day our daily bread. 12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Luke 11 [Similar topic]
2 When you pray, say, Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be your name. your kingdom come. your will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. 3Give us day by day our daily bread. 4And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.
MATTHEW 6
16Moreover when you fast, do not be, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, so that they may appear to men to fast. Verily I say to you, They have their reward. 17But you, when you fast, anoint your head, and wash your face; 18So that you do not appear to men to fast, but to your Father who is in secret: and your Father, who sees in secret, shall reward you openly.

19Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust corrupts, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22The light of the body is the eye: if therefore your eye is single, your whole body shall be full of light. 23But if your eye is evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! 24No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

25Therefore I say to you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit to his stature? 28And why take thought for clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they do not toil, neither do they spin: 29And yet I say to you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30Therefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, how shall we be clothed? 32(For the Gentiles seek after all these things:) for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. 33But seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. 34Therefore take no thought for tomorrow: for tomorrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient to the day is its evil.

MATTHEW 7
1Judge not, so that you are not judged. 2For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you measure, it shall be measured to you again. 3And why do you behold the mote that is in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye? 4Or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull out the mote out of your eye; and, behold, a beam is in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then you shall see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother's eye.
LUKE 6
37 Judge not, and you shall not be judged: condemn not, and you shall not be condemned: forgive, and you shall be forgiven: 38Give, and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you measure it shall be measured to you again. 39And he spoke a parable to them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? 40The disciple is not above his master: but every one who is perfect shall be as his master. 41And why do you behold the mote that is in your brother's eye, but perceive not the beam that is in your own eye? 42Or how can you say to your brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in your eye, when you yourself do not see the beam that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye, and then you shall see clearly to pull out the mote that is in your brother's eye
MATTHEW 7
6Do not give that which is holy to the dogs, neither cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and tear you.

7Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you: 8For every one who asks receives; and he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks it shall be opened. 9Or what man is there of you, whom if his son asks bread, will he give him a stone? 10Or if he asks a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him?

MATTHEW 7
12Therefore all things what ever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
Luke 6 [Similar topic]
31And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them the same way.
MATTHEW 7
13Enter in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there are who go in there: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to life, and few there are who find it.
MATTHEW 7
15Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
MATTHEW 7
16You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20Therefore by their fruits you shall know them.
LUKE 6
43For a good tree does not bring forth corrupt fruit; neither does a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 44For every tree is known by his own fruit. For men do not gather figs of thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. 45A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth that which is evil: for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
MATTHEW 7
21Not every one that says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? 23And then I will profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you who work iniquity.
LUKE 6
46And why do you call me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
MATTHEW 7
24Therefore who ever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house on a rock: 25And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it did not fall: for it was founded on a rock. 26And every one that hears these sayings of mine, and does not do them, shall be likened to a foolish man, who built his house on the sand: 27And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
LUKE 6
47Whoever comes to me, and hears my sayings, and does them, I will show you to whom he is like: 48He is like a man who built a house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently on that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded on a rock. 49But he who hears, and does not, is like a man who without a foundation built a house on the earth; against which the stream beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
MATTHEW 7
28And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:29For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

MATTHEW 8
1When he had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.

THE CENTURION'S SERVANT HEALED
MATTHEW 8
5a And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum,
LUKE 7
1Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum.
LUKE 7
2And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear to him, was sick, and ready to die.
MATTHEW 8
5b a centurion came to him, beseeching him, 6And saying, Lord, my servant lies at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.
LUKE 7
2 And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear to him, was sick, and ready to die.3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent to him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. 4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this: 5 For he loves our nation, and he has built us a synagogue.
MATTHEW 8
7And Jesus said to him, I will come and heal him.
LUKE 7
6a Then Jesus went with them.
8The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that you should come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 9For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my servant, Do this, and he does it. 10When Jesus heard it, he marveled, and said to those who followed, Verily I say to you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 6b And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying to him, Lord, do not trouble yourself: for I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof: 7Therefore I did bot think myself worthy to come to you: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. 8For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say to one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my servant, Do this, and he does it. 9When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turned himself around, and said to the people who followed him, I say to you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
MATTHEW 8
11And I say to you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. 12But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
MATTHEW 8
13And Jesus said to the centurion, Go your way; and as you have believed, so be it done to you. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.
LUKE 7
10 And those who were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole who had been sick.

THE WIDOW OF NAIN'S SON RAISED FROM DEATH
LUKE 7
11 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and many people. 12Now when he came near to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and many people of the city were with her. 13And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said to her, Do not Weep. 14And he came and touched the bier: and those who bore him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say to you, Arise. 15And he who was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. 16And fear came on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God has visited his people.17And this rumor of him went out throughout all Judea, and throughout all the region round about.

ARE YOU "THE COMING ONE" ?

John the Immerser sends two disciples
MATTHEW 11
2Now when John had heard the works of Christ in the prison, he sent two of his disciples, 3And said to him,
Are you he who should come* or do we look for another?
[* "he who should come" - literally: 'the coming one'  'o ercomenoV]
LUKE 7
18And the disciples of John showed him all these things.

19And John calling to him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Are you he who should come? or are we to look for another?

LUKE 7
20 When the men were come to him, they said, John the Baptist has sent us to you, saying, Are you he who should come? or do we look for another? 21 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and to many who were blind he gave sight.
MATTHEW 11
4Jesus answered and said to them, Go and show John again those things which you hear and see: 5The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 6And blessed is who ever shall not be offended in me.
LUKE 7
22 Then Jesus answering said to them, Go your way, and tell John what things you have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the gospel is preached to the poor. 23And blessed is whoever is not offended in me.
MATTHEW 11
7And as they departed, Jesus began to say to the multitudes about John, What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? 8But what did you go out to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, those who wear soft clothing are in kings' houses. 9But what did you go out to see? A prophet? yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet.
LUKE 7
24And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak to the people about John, What did you go out to the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? 25But what did you go out to see? A man clothed in soften raiment? Behold, those who are gorgeously clothed, and live delicately, are in kings' courts. 26But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and much more than a prophet.
MATTHEW 11
10For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who shall prepare your way before you. 11Verily I say to you, Among those who are born of women there has not risen a greater than John the Baptist: but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
LUKE 7
27This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before your face, which shall prepare your way before you. 28For I say to you, Among those who are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.
Malachi 3:1  [The text quoted]
Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.
MATTHEW 11
12And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. 13For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. 14And if you will receive it, this is Elijah, who was to come. 15He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
Matthew 17 [Similar topic]
10And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first? 11And Jesus answered and said to them, Elijah truly does come first, and restores all things. 12But I say to you, That Elijah has come already, and they did not know him, but have done to him what ever they wished. Likewise shall the Son of man also suffer of them. 13Then the disciples understood that he spoke to them of John the Baptist.
Mark 9 [Similar topic]
11And they asked him, saying, Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first? 12And he answered and told them, Elijah verily does come first, and restores all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at naught. 13But I say to you, That Elijah indeed came, and they have done to him what ever they wanted, as it is written of him.
Malachi 4 
[The prediction]
5Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a curse.

16But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like children sitting in the markets, and calling to their fellows, 17And saying, We have piped to you, and you have not danced; we have mourned to you, and you have not lamented. 18For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He has a devil. 19The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a gluttonous man , and a wine bibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

31And the Lord said, To what then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? 32They are like to children sitting in the marketplace, and calling to one another, and saying, We have piped to you, and you have not danced; we have mourned to you, and you have not wept. 33For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and you say, He has a demon. 34The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and you say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a wine bibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! 35But wisdom is justified of all her children.

Chorazon and Bethsaida denounced
MATTHEW 11
20Then he began to upbraid the cities in which most of his mighty works were done, because they did not repent: 21Woe to you, Chorazin! woe to you, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22But I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. 23And you, Capernaum, who is exalted to heaven, shall be brought down to Hades: for if the mighty works, which have been done in you, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24But I say to you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you.

My yolk is easy
MATTHEW 11
25At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them to babes. 26Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in your sight. 27All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knows the Son, but the Father; neither does any man know the Father, save the Son, and he to whomever the Son will reveal him. 28Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke on you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart and you shall find rest to your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

THE LORD JESUS DINED WITH A PHARISEE
LUKE 7
36And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat. 37And, behold, a woman in the city, who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, 38And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.39Now when the Pharisee who had bidden him saw it, he spoke within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is who touches him: for she is a sinner. 40And Jesus answering said to him, Simon, I have somewhat to say to you. And he said, Master, say on. 41There was a certain creditor who had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. 42And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? 43Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said to him, You have rightly judged.44And he turned to the woman, and said to Simon, Do you see this woman? I entered into your house, you gave me no water for my feet: but she has washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. 45You gave me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in has not ceased to kiss my feet. 46 You did not anoint my head with oil: but this woman has anointed my feet with ointment. 47Therefore I say to you, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little. 48And he said to her, your sins are forgiven. 49And those who sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this who also forgives sins? 50And he said to the woman, your faith has saved you; go in peace.

And they murmured against her. 6And Jesus said, Let her alone; why do you trouble her? she has wrought a good work on me. 7For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you will you may do them good: but me you have not always. 8She has done what she could: she is come beforehand to anoint my body for burying. 9Verily I say to you, Whereever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she has done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.
