Jesus in the Region Around Galilee (2)

Syrophoenician Woman

MAT 15:21 And Jesus went away from there, and withdrew into the district of Tyre and Sidon.
MAT 15:22 And behold, a Canaanite woman came out from that region, and began to cry out, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is cruelly demon-possessed."
MAT 15:23 But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came to Him and kept asking Him, saying, "Send her away, for she is shouting out after us."
MAT 15:24 But He answered and said, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
MAT 15:25 But she came and began to bow down before Him, saying, "Lord, help me!"
MAT 15:26 And He answered and said, "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."
MAT 15:27 But she said, "Yes, Lord; but even the dogs feed on the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."
MAT 15:28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, your faith is great; be it done for you as you wish." And her daughter was healed at once.
MAR 7:24 And from there He arose and went away to the region of Tyre. And when He had entered a house, He wanted no one to know of it; yet He could not escape notice.
MAR 7:25 But after hearing of Him, a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, immediately came and fell at His feet.
MAR 7:26 Now the woman was a Gentile, of the Syrophoenician race. And she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter.

 

 

MAR 7:27 And He was saying to her, "Let the children be satisfied first, for it is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."
MAR 7:28 But she answered and said to Him, "Yes, Lord, but even the dogs under the table feed on the children's crumbs."
MAR 7:29 And He said to her, "Because of this answer go your way; the demon has gone out of your daughter."
MAR 7:30 And going back to her home, she found the child lying on the bed, the demon having departed.

Return to Decapolis

MAT 15:29 And departing from there, Jesus went along by the Sea of Galilee, and having gone up to the mountain, He was sitting there.

 

 

 

 

 

MAT 15:30 And great multitudes came to Him, bringing with them those who were lame, crippled, blind, dumb, and many others, and they laid them down at His feet; and He healed them,
MAT 15:31 so that the multitude marveled as they saw the dumb speaking, the crippled restored, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.

MAR 7:31 And again He went out from the region of Tyre, and came through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, within the region of Decapolis.
MAR 7:32 And they brought to Him one who was deaf and spoke with difficulty, and they entreated Him to lay His hand upon him.
MAR 7:33 And He took him aside from the multitude by himself, and put His fingers into his ears, and after spitting, He touched his tongue with the saliva;
MAR 7:34 and looking up to heaven with a deep sigh, He said to him, "Ephphatha!" that is, "Be opened!"
MAR 7:35 And his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was removed, and he began speaking plainly.
MAR 7:36 And He gave them orders not to tell anyone; but the more He ordered them, the more widely they continued to proclaim it.
MAR 7:37 And they were utterly astonished, saying, "He has done all things well; He makes even the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak."

4,000 Fed

MAT 15:32 And Jesus called His disciples to Him, and said, "I feel compassion for the multitude, because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat; and I do not wish to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way."
MAT 15:33 And the disciples said to Him, "Where would we get so many loaves in a desolate place to satisfy such a great multitude?"
MAT 15:34 And Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven, and a few small fish."
MAT 15:35 And He directed the multitude to sit down on the ground;
MAT 15:36 and He took the seven loaves and the fish; and giving thanks, He broke them and started giving them to the disciples, and the disciples in turn, to the multitudes.

 

 

MAT 15:37 And they all ate, and were satisfied, and they picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, seven large baskets full.
MAT 15:38 And those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children.

MAR 8:1 In those days again, when there was a great multitude and they had nothing to eat, He called His disciples and said to them,
MAR 8:2 "I feel compassion for the multitude because they have remained with Me now three days, and have nothing to eat;
MAR 8:3 and if I send them away hungry to their home, they will faint on the way; and some of them have come from a distance. "
MAR 8:4 And His disciples answered Him, "Where will anyone be able to find enough to satisfy these men with bread here in a desolate place?"
MAR 8:5 And He was asking them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven."
MAR 8:6 And He directed the multitude to sit down on the ground; and taking the seven loaves, He gave thanks and broke them, and started giving them to His disciples to serve to them, and they served them to the multitude.
MAR 8:7 They also had a few small fish; and after He had blessed them, He ordered these to be served as well.
MAR 8:8 And they ate and were satisfied; and they picked up seven large baskets full of what was left over of the broken pieces.
MAR 8:9 And about four thousand were there; and He sent them away.

Testing by Pharisees and Sadduces (Magadan/Dalmanutha)

MAT 15:39 And sending away the multitudes, He got into the boat, and came to the region of Magadan.
MAT 16:1 And the Pharisees and Sadducees came up, and testing Him asked Him to show them a sign from heaven.
MAT 16:2 But He answered and said to them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.'
MAT 16:3 "And in the morning, 'There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.' Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?
MAT 16:4 "An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and a sign will not be given it, except the sign of Jonah." And He left them, and went away.
MAR 8:10 And immediately He entered the boat with His disciples, and came to the district of Dalmanutha.
MAR 8:11 And the Pharisees came out and began to argue with Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, to test Him.

 

 

 

MAR 8:12 And sighing deeply in His spirit, He said, "Why does this generation seek for a sign? Truly I say to you, no sign shall be given to this generation."

Beware of Leaven of Pharisees, Sadduces and Herod (east side of Galilee)

MAT 16:5 And the disciples came to the other side and had forgotten to take bread.
MAT 16:6 And Jesus said to them, "Watch out and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees."
MAT 16:7 And they began to discuss among themselves, saying, "It is because we took no bread."

MAT 16:8 But Jesus, aware of this, said, "You men of little faith, why do you discuss among yourselves that you have no bread?

 

MAT 16:9 "Do you not yet understand or remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets you took up?
MAT 16:10 "Or the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many large baskets you took up?
MAT 16:11 "How is it that you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread? But beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees."
MAT 16:12 Then they understood that He did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

MAR 8:13 And leaving them, He again embarked and went away to the other side.
MAR 8:14 And they had forgotten to take bread; and did not have more than one loaf in the boat with them.
MAR 8:15 And He was giving orders to them, saying, "Watch out! Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod."
MAR 8:16 And they began to discuss with one another the fact that they had no bread.
MAR 8:17 And Jesus, aware of this, said to them, "Why do you discuss the fact that you have no bread? Do you not yet see or understand? Do you have a hardened heart?
MAR 8:18 "Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember,
MAR 8:19 when I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces you picked up? "They said to Him," Twelve. "
MAR 8:20 "And when I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of broken pieces did you pick up?" And they said to Him, "Seven."
MAR 8:21 And He was saying to them, "Do you not yet understand?"

Blind man healed (Bethsaida near Julius) - Mark 8:22-26

"Who Am I?" (Caesarea Philippi)

MAT 16:13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He began asking His disciples, saying, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?"
MAT 16:14 And they said, "Some say John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; but still others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets."
MAT 16:15 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"
MAT 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God."
MAT 16:17 And Jesus answered and said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
MAT 16:18 "And I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades shall not overpower it.
MAT 16:19 "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
MAT 16:20 Then He warned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was the Christ.
MAR 8:27 And Jesus went out, along with His disciples, to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way He questioned His disciples, saying to them, "Who do people say that I am?"
MAR 8:28 And they told Him, saying, "John the Baptist; and others say Elijah; but others, one of the prophets."

MAR 8:29 And He continued by questioning them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered and said to Him, "Thou art the Christ."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAR 8:30 And He warned them to tell no one about Him.

LUK 9:18 And it came about that while He was praying alone, the disciples were with Him, and He questioned them, saying, "Who do the multitudes say that I am?"
LUK 9:19 And they answered and said, "John the Baptist, and others say Elijah; but others, that one of the prophets of old has risen again."

LUK 9:20 And He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" And Peter answered and said, "The Christ of God."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LUK 9:21 But He warned them, and instructed them not to tell this to anyone,

Jesus Explains the Things He Must Undergo

MAT 16:21 From that time Jesus Christ began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised up on the third day.
MAT 16:22 And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, "God forbid it, Lord! This shall never happen to You."
MAT 16:23 But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's."
MAR 8:31 And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.
MAR 8:32 And He was stating the matter plainly. And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.
MAR 8:33 But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter, and said, "Get behind Me, Satan; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's."
LUK 9:22 saying, "The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised up on the third day."

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cost of Discipleship

MAT 16:24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
MAT 16:25 "For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it.

MAT 16:26 "For what will a man be profited, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

MAR 8:34 And He summoned the multitude with His disciples, and said to them, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
MAR 8:35 "For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's shall save it.
MAR 8:36 "For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?
MAR 8:37 "For what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
LUK 9:23 And He was saying to them all, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
LUK 9:24 "For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it.

LUK 9:25 "For what is a man profited if he gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits himself?

Some Will Not Taste Death...

MAT 16:27 "For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels; and will then recompense every man according to his deeds.

MAT 16:28 "Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who shall not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom."

MAR 8:38 "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."
MAR 9:1 And He was saying to them, "Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who shall not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power."
LUK 9:26 "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.

LUK 9:27 "But I say to you truthfully, there are some of those standing here who shall not taste death until they see the kingdom of God."

Transfiguration - Mount Hermon (?)

MAT 17:1 And six days later Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and brought them up to a high mountain by themselves.
MAT 17:2 And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light.
MAT 17:3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him.

 

 

 

 

MAT 17:4 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, I will make three tabernacles here, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah."

MAT 17:5 While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and behold, a voice out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!"
MAT 17:6 And when the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were much afraid.
MAT 17:7 And Jesus came to them and touched them and said, "Arise, and do not be afraid."
MAT 17:8 And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one, except Jesus Himself alone.

MAT 17:9 And as they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, "Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man has risen from the dead."

MAR 9:2 And six days later, Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John, and brought them up to a high mountain by themselves. And He was transfigured before them;
MAR 9:3 and His garments became radiant and exceedingly white, as no launderer on earth can whiten them.

MAR 9:4 And Elijah appeared to them along with Moses; and they were talking with Jesus.

 

 

 

 

MAR 9:5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
MAR 9:6 For he did not know what to answer; for they became terrified.
MAR 9:7 Then a cloud formed, overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, "This is My beloved Son, listen to Him!"

 

 

 

MAR 9:8 And all at once they looked around and saw no one with them anymore, except Jesus alone.

MAR 9:9 And as they were coming down from the mountain, He gave them orders not to relate to anyone what they had seen, until the Son of Man should rise from the dead.
MAR 9:10 And they seized upon that statement, discussing with one another what rising from the dead might mean.

LUK 9:28 And some eight days after these sayings, it came about that He took along Peter and John and James, and went up to the mountain to pray.
LUK 9:29 And while He was praying, the appearance of His face became different, and His clothing became white and gleaming.
LUK 9:30 And behold, two men were talking with Him; and they were Moses and Elijah,
LUK 9:31 who, appearing in glory, were speaking of His departure which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.
LUK 9:32 Now Peter and his companions had been overcome with sleep; but when they were fully awake, they saw His glory and the two men standing with Him.
LUK 9:33 And it came about, as these were parting from Him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah"-- not realizing what he was saying.
LUK 9:34 And while he was saying this, a cloud formed and began to overshadow them; and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.
LUK 9:35 And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My Son, My Chosen One; listen to Him!"

 

 

LUK 9:36 And when the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone.

 

 

And they kept silent, and reported to no one in those days any of the things which they had seen.

Elijah and John the Baptist (returning from the mountain)

MAT 17:10 And His disciples asked Him, saying, "Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?"
MAT 17:11 And He answered and said, "Elijah is coming and will restore all things;


MAT 17:12 but I say to you, that Elijah already came, and they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they wished. So also the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands. "
MAT 17:13 Then the disciples understood that He had spoken to them about John the Baptist.

MAR 9:11 And they asked Him, saying, "Why is it that the scribes say that Elijah must come first?"
MAR 9:12 And He said to them, "Elijah does first come and restore all things. And yet how is it written of the Son of Man that He should suffer many things and be treated with contempt?
MAR 9:13 "But I say to you, that Elijah has indeed come, and they did to him whatever they wished, just as it is written of him."
