Teaching at Nazareth

1 Jesus R168 went out from there and came into His R169 F76 hometown; and His disciples followed Him. 2 When the Sabbath came, He began to R170 teach in the synagogue; and the many R171 listeners were astonished, saying, "Where did this man get these things, and what is this wisdom given to Him, and such miracles F77 as these performed by His hands? 3 "Is not this the R172 carpenter, the R173 son of Mary, and brother of James F78 and Joses and Judas and Simon? Are not His R174 sisters here with us?" And they took offense R175 at Him. 4 Jesus said to them, "A R176 prophet is not without honor except in his R177 F79 hometown and among his own relatives and in his own household." 5 And He could do no miracle F80 there except that He laid R178 His hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6 And He wondered at their unbelief.

And R179 He was going around the villages teaching.

The Twelve Sent Out

7 And R180 He R181 summoned the twelve and began to send them out in R182 pairs, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits; 8 and R183 He instructed them that they should take nothing for their journey, except a mere staff--no bread, no bag, F81 no money in their belt-- 9 but to F82 wear sandals; and He added, "Do not put on two tunics." F83 10 And He said to them, "Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave F84 town. 11 "Any place that does not receive you or listen to you, as you go out from there, shake R184 the dust off F85 the soles of your feet for a testimony against them." 12 They R185 went out and preached F86 that men should repent. 13 And they were casting out many demons and were R186 anointing with oil many sick people and healing them.

John's Fate Recalled

14 And R187 King Herod heard of it, for His name had become well known; and people were saying, "John R188 the Baptist has risen from the dead, and that is why these miraculous powers are at work in Him." 15 But others were saying, "He is Elijah." R189 And others were saying, "He is a R190 prophet, like one of the prophets of old." 16 But when Herod heard of it, he kept saying, "John, whom I beheaded, has risen!"

17 For Herod himself had sent and had John arrested and bound in prison on account of Herodias, R191 the wife of his brother Philip, because he had married her. 18 For John had been saying to Herod, "It R192 is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife." 19 Herodias R193 had a grudge against him and wanted to put him to death and could not do so; 20 for Herod R194 was afraid of John, knowing that he was a righteous and holy man, and he kept him safe. And when he heard him, he was very perplexed; but F87 he used F88 to enjoy listening to him. 21 A strategic day came when Herod on his birthday gave R195 a banquet for his lords and military F89 commanders and the leading men of R196 Galilee; 22 and when the daughter of Herodias R197 herself came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his F90 dinner guests; and the king said to the girl, "Ask me for whatever you want and I will give it to you." 23 And he swore to her, "Whatever you ask of me, I will give it to you; up to half R198 of my kingdom." 24 And she went out and said to her mother, "What shall I ask for?" And she said, "The head of John the Baptist." 25 Immediately she came in a hurry to the king and asked, saying, "I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter." 26 And although the king was very sorry, yet because of his oaths and because of his F91 dinner guests, he was unwilling to refuse her. 27 Immediately the king sent an executioner and commanded him to bring back his head. And he went and had him beheaded in the prison, 28 and brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl; and the girl gave it to her mother. 29 When his disciples heard about this, they came and took away his body and laid it in a tomb.

30 The R199 apostles R200 gathered together with Jesus; and they reported to Him all that they had done and taught. 31 And He said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while." (For there were many people coming and going, and they R201 did not even have time to eat.) 32 They R202 went away in the R203 boat to a secluded place by themselves.

Five Thousand Fed

33 The people saw them going, and many recognized them and ran there together on foot from all the cities, and got there ahead of them. 34 When Jesus went ashore, F92 He saw R204 a large crowd, and He felt compassion for them because they R205 were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things. 35 When it was already quite late, His disciples came to Him and said, "This F93 place is desolate and it is already quite late; 36 send them away so that they may go into the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something F94 to eat." 37 But He answered them, "You give them something to eat!" And R206 they said to Him, "Shall we go and spend two hundred denarii R207 F95 on bread and give them something to eat?" 38 And He said to them, "How many loaves do you have? Go look!" And when they found out, they said, "Five, and two fish." 39 And He commanded them all to sit F96 down by groups on the green grass. 40 They sat F97 down in groups of hundreds and of fifties. 41 And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed R208 the food and broke the loaves and He kept giving them to the disciples to set before them; and He divided up the two fish among them all. 42 They all ate and were satisfied, 43 and they picked up twelve full baskets R209 of the broken pieces, and also of the fish. 44 There were five R210 thousand men who ate the loaves.

Jesus Walks on the Water

45 Immediately R211 Jesus made His disciples get into the R212 boat and go ahead of Him to the other side to Bethsaida, R213 while He Himself was sending the crowd away. 46 After bidding R214 them farewell, He left for R215 the mountain to pray.

47 When it was evening, the boat was in the middle of the sea, and He was alone on the land. 48 Seeing them straining F98 at the oars, for the wind was against them, at about the fourth R216 F99 watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea; and He intended to pass by them. 49 But when they saw Him walking on the sea, they supposed that it was a ghost, and cried out; 50 for they all saw Him and were terrified. F100 But immediately He spoke with them and said to them, "Take R217 courage; it is I, do R218 not be afraid." 51 Then He got into the R219 boat with them, and the wind stopped; and they were utterly astonished, 52 for they R220 had F101 not gained any insight from the incident of the loaves, but their F102 heart was R221 hardened.

Healing at Gennesaret

53 When R222 they had crossed over they came to land at Gennesaret, and moored to the shore. 54 When they got out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, 55 and ran about that whole country and began to carry here and there on their pallets those who were sick, to the F103 place they heard He was. 56 Wherever He entered villages, or cities, or countryside, they were laying the sick in the market places, and imploring Him that they might just touch R223 the R224 fringe of His cloak; and as many as touched it were being cured.
