Divorce (Perea?)

MAT 19:1 And it came about that when Jesus had finished these words, He departed from Galilee, and came into the region of Judea beyond the Jordan;
MAT 19:2 and great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them there.
MAT 19:3 And some Pharisees came to Him, testing Him, and saying, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause at all?"

 

 


MAT 19:4 And He answered and said, "Have you not read, that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female,
MAT 19:5 and said,' For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh'?
MAT 19:6 "Consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."
MAT 19:7 They said to Him, "Why then did Moses command to give her a certificate of divorce and send her away?"
MAT 19:8 He said to them, "Because of your hardness of heart, Moses permitted you to divorce your wives; but from the beginning it has not been this way.
MAT 19:9 "And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery."
MAT 19:10 The disciples said to Him, "If the relationship of the man with his wife is like this, it is better not to marry."
MAT 19:11 But He said to them, "Not all men can accept this statement, but only those to whom it has been given.
MAT 19:12 "For there are eunuchs who were born that way from their mother's womb; and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men; and there are also eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to accept this, let him accept it."

MAR 10:1 And rising up, He went from there to the region of Judea, and beyond the Jordan; and crowds gathered around Him again, and, according to His custom, He once more began to teach them.
MAR 10:2 And some Pharisees came up to Him, testing Him, and began to question Him whether it was lawful for a man to divorce a wife.
MAR 10:3 And He answered and said to them, "What did Moses command you?"
MAR 10:4 And they said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away."
MAR 10:5 But Jesus said to them, "Because of your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment.
MAR 10:6 "But from the beginning of creation, God made them male and female.
MAR 10:7 "For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother,
MAR 10:8 and the two shall become one flesh; consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh.
MAR 10:9 "What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."
MAR 10:10 And in the house the disciples began questioning Him about this again.

 

MAR 10:11 And He said to them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her;
MAR 10:12 and if she herself divorces her husband and marries another man, she is committing adultery. "

Like Little Children

MAT 19:13 Then some children were brought to Him so that He might lay His hands on them and pray; and the disciples rebuked them.
MAT 19:14 But Jesus said, "Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

 

MAT 19:15 And after laying His hands on them, He departed from there.

MAR 10:13 And they were bringing children to Him so that He might touch them; and the disciples rebuked them.
MAR 10:14 But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and said to them, "Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
MAR 10:15 "Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it at all."
MAR 10:16 And He took them in His arms and began blessing them, laying His hands upon them.
LUK 18:15 And they were bringing even their babies to Him so that He might touch them, but when the disciples saw it, they began rebuking them.
LUK 18:16 But Jesus called for them, saying, "Permit the children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
LUK 18:17 "Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it at all."

Riches

MAT 19:16 And behold, one came to Him and said, "Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may obtain eternal life?"
MAT 19:17 And He said to him, "Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments."
MAT 19:18 He said to Him, "Which ones?" And Jesus said, "You shall not commit murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness;
MAT 19:19 Honor your father and mother; and You shall love your neighbor as yourself. "
MAT 19:20 The young man said to Him, "All these things I have kept; what am I still lacking?"
MAT 19:21 Jesus said to him, "If you wish to be complete, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."
MAT 19:22 But when the young man heard this statement, he went away grieved; for he was one who owned much property.
MAT 19:23 And Jesus said to His disciples, "Truly I say to you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.

 

MAT 19:24 "And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
MAT 19:25 And when the disciples heard this, they were very astonished and said, "Then who can be saved?"
MAT 19:26 And looking upon them Jesus said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

MAT 19:27 Then Peter answered and said to Him, "Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?"
MAT 19:28 And Jesus said to them, "Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
MAT 19:29 "And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name's sake, shall receive many times as much, and shall inherit eternal life.

 

 

MAT 19:30 "But many who are first will be last; and the last, first.

MAR 10:17 And as He was setting out on a journey, a man ran up to Him and knelt before Him, and began asking Him, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
MAR 10:18 And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.

MAR 10:19 "You know the commandments, 'Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.'"


MAR 10:20 And he said to Him, "Teacher, I have kept all these things from my youth up."
MAR 10:21 And looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him, and said to him, "One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."
MAR 10:22 But at these words his face fell, and he went away grieved, for he was one who owned much property.
MAR 10:23 And Jesus, looking around, said to His disciples, "How hard it will be for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!"
MAR 10:24 And the disciples were amazed at His words. But Jesus answered again and said to them, "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!
MAR 10:25 "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

MAR 10:26 And they were even more astonished and said to Him, "Then who can be saved?"
MAR 10:27 Looking upon them, Jesus said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God."
MAR 10:28 Peter began to say to Him, "Behold, we have left everything and followed You."

 

 

 

 

 

MAR 10:29 Jesus said, "Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel's sake,
MAR 10:30 but that he shall receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life.
MAR 10:31 "But many who are first, will be last; and the last, first."

LUK 18:18 And a certain ruler questioned Him, saying, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
LUK 18:19 And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.

 

LUK 18:20 "You know the commandments, 'Do not commit adultery, Do not murder, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.'"

 


LUK 18:21 And he said, "All these things I have kept from my youth."
LUK 18:22 And when Jesus heard this, He said to him, "One thing you still lack; sell all that you possess, and distribute it to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."
LUK 18:23 But when he had heard these things, he became very sad; for he was extremely rich.
LUK 18:24 And Jesus looked at him and said, "How hard it is for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!

 


LUK 18:25 "For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

LUK 18:26 And they who heard it said, "Then who can be saved?"

LUK 18:27 But He said, "The things impossible with men are possible with God."

LUK 18:28 And Peter said, "Behold, we have left our own homes, and followed You."


 

 

 

LUK 18:29 And He said to them, "Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God,
LUK 18:30 who shall not receive many times as much at this time and in the age to come, eternal life. "

Landowner and his hired workers - Matthew 20:1-16

Prediction of the Resurrection (road to Jerusalem)

MAT 20:17 And as Jesus was about to go up to Jerusalem,

 

He took the twelve disciples aside by themselves, and on the way He said to them,
MAT 20:18 "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn Him to death,
MAT 20:19 and will deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock and scourge and crucify Him, and on the third day He will be raised up. "

MAR 10:32 And they were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking on ahead of them; and they were amazed, and those who followed were fearful. And again He took the twelve aside and began to tell them what was going to happen to Him,
MAR 10:33 saying, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, and will deliver Him to the Gentiles.
MAR 10:34 "And they will mock Him and spit upon Him, and scourge Him, and kill Him, and three days later He will rise again."
 

 

 


LUK 18:31 And He took the twelve aside and said to them, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and all things which are written through the prophets about the Son of Man will be accomplished.
LUK 18:32 "For He will be delivered to the Gentiles, and will be mocked and mistreated and spit upon,
LUK 18:33 and after they have scourged Him, they will kill Him; and the third day He will rise again. "
LUK 18:34 And they understood none of these things, and this saying was hidden from them, and they did not comprehend the things that were said.

Seek to Serve, Not Be Served

MAT 20:20 Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came to Him with her sons, bowing down, and making a request of Him.
MAT 20:21 And He said to her, "What do you wish?" She said to Him, "Command that in Your kingdom these two sons of mine may sit, one on Your right and one on Your left."
MAT 20:22 But Jesus answered and said, "You do not know what you are asking for. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?"

 


They said to Him, "We are able."
MAT 20:23 He said to them, "My cup you shall drink; but to sit on My right and on My left, this is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by My Father."

MAT 20:24 And hearing this, the ten became indignant with the two brothers.
MAT 20:25 But Jesus called them to Himself, and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them.

MAT 20:26 "It is not so among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant,
MAT 20:27 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave;
MAT 20:28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many. "

MAR 10:35 And James and John, the two sons of Zebedee, came up to Him, saying to Him, "Teacher, we want You to do for us whatever we ask of You."
MAR 10:36 And He said to them, "What do you want Me to do for you?"
MAR 10:37 And they said to Him, "Grant that we may sit in Your glory, one on Your right, and one on Your left."
MAR 10:38 But Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you are asking for. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?"
MAR 10:39 And they said to Him, "We are able." And Jesus said to them, "The cup that I drink you shall drink; and you shall be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized.
MAR 10:40 "But to sit on My right or on My left, this is not Mine to give; but it is for those for whom it has been prepared."
MAR 10:41 And hearing this, the ten began to feel indignant with James and John.
MAR 10:42 And calling them to Himself, Jesus said to them, "You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them; and their great men exercise authority over them.
MAR 10:43 "But it is not so among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant;
MAR 10:44 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all.
MAR 10:45 "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

Blind Bartimaeus (Jericho)

MAT 20:29 And as they were going out from Jericho, a great multitude followed Him.

 

 

MAT 20:30 And behold, two blind men sitting by the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!"
MAT 20:31 And the multitude sternly told them to be quiet; but they cried out all the more, saying, "Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!"

 

 


MAT 20:32 And Jesus stopped and called them, and said, "What do you want Me to do for you?"
MAT 20:33 They said to Him, "Lord, we want our eyes to be opened."
MAT 20:34 And moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes; and immediately they regained their sight and followed Him.

MAR 10:46 And they came to Jericho. And as He was going out from Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the road.

 

MAR 10:47 And when he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
MAR 10:48 And many were sternly telling him to be quiet, but he kept crying out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
MAR 10:49 And Jesus stopped and said, "Call him here." And they called the blind man, saying to him, "Take courage, arise! He is calling for you."
MAR 10:50 And casting aside his cloak, he jumped up, and came to Jesus.
MAR 10:51 And answering him, Jesus said, "What do you want Me to do for you?" And the blind man said to Him, "Rabboni, I want to regain my sight!"
MAR 10:52 And Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your faith has made you well." And immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the road.

LUK 18:35 And it came about that as He was approaching Jericho, a certain blind man was sitting by the road, begging.

LUK 18:36 Now hearing a multitude going by, he began to inquire what this might be.
LUK 18:37 And they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by.
LUK 18:38 And he called out, saying, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
LUK 18:39 And those who led the way were sternly telling him to be quiet; but he kept crying out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
LUK 18:40 And Jesus stopped and commanded that he be brought to Him; and when he had come near, He questioned him,

 

LUK 18:41 "What do you want Me to do for you?" And he said, "Lord, I want to regain my sight!"

LUK 18:42 And Jesus said to him, "Receive your sight; your faith has made you well."
LUK 18:43 And immediately he regained his sight, and began following Him, glorifying God; and when all the people saw it, they gave praise to God.
