disciples pick grain on Sabbath; Jesus Lord of Sabbath (maybe Galilee)
|MAT 12:1 At that time Jesus went on the Sabbath through the
grainfields, and His disciples became hungry and began to pick the heads of grain and eat.
MAT 12:2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Him, "Behold, Your disciples do what is not lawful to do on a Sabbath."
MAT 12:3 But He said to them, "Have you not read what David did, when he became hungry, he and his companions;
MAT 12:4 how he entered the house of God, and they ate the consecrated bread, which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those with him, but for the priests alone?
MAT 12:5 "Or have you not read in the Law, that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple break the Sabbath, and are innocent?
MAT 12:6 "But I say to you, that something greater than the temple is here.
MAT 12:7 "But if you had known what this means, 'I desire compassion, and not a sacrifice,' you would not have condemned the innocent.
MAT 12:8 "For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."
|MAR 2:23 ¶ And it came about that He was passing
through the grainfields on the Sabbath, and His disciples began to make their way along
while picking the heads of grain.
MAR 2:24 And the Pharisees were saying to Him, "See here, why are they doing what is not lawful on the Sabbath?"
MAR 2:25 And He said to them, "Have you never read what David did when he was in need and became hungry, he and his companions:
MAR 2:26 how he entered the house of God in the time of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the consecrated bread, which is not lawful for anyone to eat except the priests, and he gave it also to those who were with him?"
MAR 2:27 And He was saying to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.
MAR 2:28 "Consequently, the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath."
|LUK 6:1 Now it came about that on a certain
Sabbath He was passing through some grainfields; and His disciples were picking and eating
the heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands.
LUK 6:2 But some of the Pharisees said, "Why do you do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?"
LUK 6:3 And Jesus answering them said, "Have you not even read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him,
LUK 6:4 how he entered the house of God, and took and ate the consecrated bread which is not lawful for any to eat except the priests alone, and gave it to his companions? "
LUK 6:5 And He was saying to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."
withered hand healed on Sabbath (synagogue in Galilee)
|MAT 12:9 ¶ And departing from there, He went
into their synagogue.
MAT 12:10 And behold, there was a man with a withered hand. And they questioned Him, saying, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?"-- in order that they might accuse Him.
MAT 12:11 And He said to them, "What man shall there be among you, who shall have one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will he not take hold of it, and lift it out?
MAT 12:12 "Of how much more value then is a man than a sheep! So then, it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath."
MAT 12:13 Then He said to the man, "Stretch out your hand!" And he stretched it out, and it was restored to normal, like the other.
MAT 12:14 But the Pharisees went out, and counseled together against Him, as to how they might destroy Him.
|MAR 3:1 And He entered again into a synagogue;
and a man was there with a withered hand.
MAR 3:2 And they were watching Him to see if He would heal him on the Sabbath, in order that they might accuse Him.
MAR 3:3 And He said to the man with the withered hand, "Rise and come forward!"
MAR 3:4 And He said to them, "Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save a life or to kill?" But they kept silent.
MAR 3:5 And after looking around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart, He said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored.
MAR 3:6 And the Pharisees went out and immediately began taking counsel with the Herodians against Him, as to how they might destroy Him.
|LUK 6:6 ¶ And it came about on another Sabbath, that He
entered the synagogue and was teaching; and there was a man there whose right hand was
LUK 6:7 And the scribes and the Pharisees were watching Him closely, to see if He healed on the Sabbath, in order that they might find reason to accuse Him.
LUK 6:8 But He knew what they were thinking, and He said to the man with the withered hand, "Rise and come forward!" And he rose and came forward.
LUK 6:9 And Jesus said to them, "I ask you, is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good, or to do harm, to save a life, or to destroy it?"
LUK 6:10 And after looking around at them all, He said to him, "Stretch out your hand!" And he did so; and his hand was restored.
LUK 6:11 But they themselves were filled with rage, and discussed together what they might do to Jesus.
multitude follows Jesus to Sea of Galilee
|MAT 12:15 ¶ But Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there.
And many followed Him, and He healed them all,
MAT 12:16 and warned them not to make Him known,
MAT 12:17 in order that what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, might be fulfilled, saying,
MAT 12:18 "Behold, My Servant whom I have chosen; My Beloved in whom My soul is well-pleased; I will put My Spirit upon Him, And He shall proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
MAT 12:19 "He will not quarrel, nor cry out; Nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets.
MAT 12:20 "A battered reed He will not break off, And a smoldering wick He will not put out, Until He leads justice to victory.
MAT 12:21 "And in His name the Gentiles will hope."
MAT 4:25 And great multitudes followed Him from Galilee and Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judea and from beyond the Jordan.
|MAR 3:7 ¶ And Jesus withdrew to the sea with His
disciples; and a great multitude from Galilee followed; and also from Judea,
MAR 3:8 and from Jerusalem, and from Idumea, and beyond the Jordan, and the vicinity of Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude heard of all that He was doing and came to Him.
MAR 3:9 And He told His disciples that a boat should stand ready for Him because of the multitude, in order that they might not crowd Him;
MAR 3:10 for He had healed many, with the result that all those who had afflictions pressed about Him in order to touch Him.
MAR 3:11 And whenever the unclean spirits beheld Him, they would fall down before Him and cry out, saying, "You are the Son of God!"
MAR 3:12 And He earnestly warned them not to make Him known.
Jesus goes to mountain, names as apostles (mountain near Sea of Galilee)
|MAR 3:13 ¶ And He went up to the mountain and summoned those
whom He Himself wanted, and they came to Him.
MAR 3:14 And He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him, and that He might send them out to preach,
MAR 3:15 and to have authority to cast out the demons.
MAR 3:16 And He appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom He gave the name Peter),
MAR 3:17 and James, the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James (to them He gave the name Boanerges, which means, "Sons of Thunder");
MAR 3:18 and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Zealot;
MAR 3:19 and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.
|LUK 6:12 ¶ And it was at this time that He went
off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to God.
LUK 6:13 And when day came, He called His disciples to Him; and chose twelve of them, whom He also named as apostles:
LUK 6:14 Simon, whom He also named Peter, and Andrew his brother; and James and John; and Philip and Bartholomew;
LUK 6:15 and Matthew and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot;
LUK 6:16 Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
Sermon on the Mount
|MAT 5:1 And when He saw the multitudes, He went
up on the mountain; and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him.
MAT 5:2 And opening His mouth He began to teach them, saying,
MAT 5:3 ¶ "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
MAT 5:4 ¶ "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
MAT 5:5 ¶ "Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.
MAT 5:6 ¶ "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
MAT 5:7 ¶ "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
MAT 5:8 ¶ "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
MAT 5:9 ¶ "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
MAT 5:10 ¶ "Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
MAT 5:11 "Blessed are you when men cast insults at you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, on account of Me.
MAT 5:12 "Rejoice, and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
|LUK 6:17 And He descended with them, and stood on a level
place; and there was a great multitude of His disciples, and a great throng of people from
all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon,
LUK 6:18 who had come to hear Him, and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were being cured.
LUK 6:19 And all the multitude were trying to touch Him, for power was coming from Him and healing them all.
LUK 6:20 ¶ And turning His gaze on His disciples, He began to say, "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
LUK 6:21 "Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.
LUK 6:22 "Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and cast insults at you, and spurn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man.
LUK 6:23 "Be glad in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for in the same way their fathers used to treat the prophets.
LUK 6:24 "But woe to you who are rich, for you are receiving your comfort in full.
LUK 6:25 "Woe to you who are well-fed now, for you shall be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep.
LUK 6:26 "Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for in the same way their fathers used to treat the false prophets.

understanding Old and New Laws
|MAT 5:21 ¶ "You have heard that the ancients were told,
'You shall not commit murder' and 'Whoever commits murder shall be liable to the court.'
MAT 5:22 "But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever shall say to his brother, 'Raca,' shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever shall say, 'You fool,' shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell.
MAT 5:23 "If therefore you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you,
MAT 5:24 leave your offering there before the altar, and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your offering.
MAT 5:25 "Make friends quickly with your opponent at law while you are with him on the way, in order that your opponent may not deliver you to the judge, and the judge to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.
MAT 5:26 "Truly I say to you, you shall not come out of there, until you have paid up the last cent.
MAT 5:27 ¶ "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery';
MAT 5:28 but I say to you, that everyone who looks on a woman to lust for her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.
MAT 5:29 "And if your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out, and throw it from you; for it is better for you that one of the parts of your body perish, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.
MAT 5:30 "And if your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off, and throw it from you; for it is better for you that one of the parts of your body perish, than for your whole body to go into hell.
MAT 5:31 "And it was said, 'Whoever sends his wife away, let him give her a certificate of divorce';
MAT 5:32 but I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the cause of unchastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
MAT 5:33 ¶ "Again, you have heard that the ancients were told, 'You shall not make false vows, but shall fulfill your vows to the Lord.'
MAT 5:34 "But I say to you, make no oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God,
MAT 5:35 or by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.
MAT 5:36 "Nor shall you make an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black.
MAT 5:37 "But let your statement be, 'Yes, yes' or 'No, no'; and anything beyond these is of evil.
MAT 5:38 ¶ "You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.'
MAT 5:39 "But I say to you, do not resist him who is evil; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.
MAT 5:40 "And if anyone wants to sue you, and take your shirt, let him have your coat also.

MAT 5:42 "Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.
MAT 5:43 ¶ "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.'
MAT 5:44 "But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you
MAT 5:45 in order that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
MAT 5:46 "For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax-gatherers do the same?
MAT 5:47 "And if you greet your brothers only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?
MAT 5:48 "Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

MAT 7:2 "For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.
MAT 7:3 "And why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do
not notice the log that is in your own eye?

be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be
LUK 6:38 "Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, they will pour into your lap. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return."
LUK 6:39 ¶ And He also spoke a parable to them: "A blind man cannot guide a blind man, can he? Will they not both fall into a pit?
LUK 6:40 "A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher.
LUK 6:41 "And why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
LUK 6:42 "Or how can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,' when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye.

treatment of others; narrow gate; fruit; understanding of lordship; wise and foolish men
|MAT 7:12 "Therefore, however you want people
to treat you, so treat them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
MAT 7:13 ¶ "Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it.
MAT 7:14 "For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.
MAT 7:15 ¶ "Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
MAT 7:16 "You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they?
MAT 7:17 "Even so, every good tree bears good fruit; but the bad tree bears bad fruit.
MAT 7:18 "A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.
MAT 7:19 "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
MAT 7:20 "So then, you will know them by their fruits.
MAT 7:21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.
MAT 7:22 "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?'
MAT 7:23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.'
MAT 7:24 ¶ "Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house upon the rock.
MAT 7:25 "And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded upon the rock.
MAT 7:26 "And everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does not act upon them, will be like a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand.
MAT 7:27 "And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and it fell, and great was its fall."
|LUK 6:31 "And just as you want people to
treat you, treat them in the same way.

hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit.

show you whom he is like:
