Jesus Heals on the Sabbath
(Matthew 12:9-14; Luke 6:6-11)
1And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was there a man having his hand dried up.
2And they watched him if he would heal him on the sabbath, that they might accuse him.
3And he says to the man who had his hand dried up, Rise up and come into the midst.
4And he says to them, Is it lawful on the sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill? But they were silent.
5And looking round upon them with anger, distressed at the hardening of their heart, he says to the man, Stretch out thy hand. And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored.
6And the Pharisees going out straightway with the Herodians took counsel against him, how they might destroy him.
Great Crowds Follow Jesus
7And Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea; and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
8and from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea and beyond the Jordan; and they of around Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, having heard what things he did, came to him.
9And he spoke to his disciples, in order that a little ship should wait upon him on account of the crowd, that they might not press upon him.
10For he healed many, so that they beset him that they might touch him, as many as had plagues.
11And the unclean spirits, when they beheld him, fell down before him, and cried saying, Thou art the Son of God.
12And he rebuked them much, that they might not make him manifest.
The Twelve Apostles
(Matthew 10:1-4; Luke 6:12-16)
13And he goes up into the mountain, and calls whom he himself would, and they went to him.
14And he appointed twelve that they might be with him, and that he might send them to preach,
15and to have power to heal diseases, and to cast out demons.
16And he gave to Simon the surname of Peter;
17and James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James, and he gave them the surname of Boanerges, that is, Sons of thunder;
18and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean,
19and Judas Iscariote, who also delivered him up. And they come to the house.
A House Divided
(Matthew 12:22-30; Luke 11:14-23)
20And again a crowd comes together, so that they cannot even eat bread.
21And his relatives having heard of it went out to lay hold on him, for they said, He is out of his mind.
22And the scribes who had come down from Jerusalem said, He has Beelzebub, and, By the prince of the demons he casts out demons.
23And having called them to him, he said to them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
24And if a kingdom has become divided against itself, that kingdom cannot subsist.
25And if a house has become divided against itself, that house cannot subsist.
26And if Satan rise up against himself, and is divided, he cannot subsist, but has an end.
27But no one can, having entered into his house, plunder the goods of the strong man unless he first bind the strong man, and then he will plunder his house.
The Unpardonable Sin
28Verily I say unto you, that all sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men, and all the injurious speeches with which they may speak injuriously;
29but whosoever shall speak injuriously against the Holy Spirit, to eternity has no forgiveness; but lies under the guilt of an everlasting sin;
30because they said, he has an unclean spirit.
Jesus' Mother and Brothers
(Matthew 12:46-50; Luke 8:19-21)
31And his brethren and his mother come, and standing without sent to him calling him.
32And a crowd sat around him. And they said to him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren seek thee without.
33And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother or my brethren?
34And looking around in a circuit at those that were sitting around him, he says, Behold my mother and my brethren:
35for whosoever shall do the will of God, he is my brother, and sister, and mother.
