|Then He went out from there and came to His own country, and His disciples followed Him.
And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, "Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands!
But Jesus said to them,
And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching. |
And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits.
And whoever Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!"
So they went out and preached that people should repent.
And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.
Now King Herod heard of Him, for His name had become well known. And he said, "John the Baptist is risen from the dead, and therefore these powers are at work in him."
Others said, "It is Elijah." And others said, "It is the Prophet, or like one of the prophets."
But when Herod heard, he said, "This is John, whom I beheaded; he has been raised from the dead!"
For Herod himself had sent and laid hold of John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife; for he had married her.
For John had said to Herod, "It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife."
Therefore Herodias held it against him and wanted to kill him, but she could not;
And when Herodias' daughter herself came in and danced, and pleased Herod and those who sat with him, the king said to the girl,
He also swore to her,
So she went out and said to her mother,
Immediately she came in with haste to the king and asked, saying,
And He said to them, For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.
But He answered and said to them,
But He said to them,
for they all saw Him and were troubled. But immediately He talked with them and said to them, "Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid."
Then He went up into the boat to them, and the wind ceased. And they were greatly amazed in themselves beyond measure, and marveled.
For they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened.
When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret and anchored there.
And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him,
ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was.
Wherever He entered into villages, cities, or in the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.
