Healing of Centurian's servant (Capernaum)

MAT 8:1 And when He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him.

MAT 8:5 And when He had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, entreating Him,
MAT 8:6 and saying, "Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, suffering great pain."
MAT 8:7 And He said to him, "I will come and heal him."

 

MAT 8:8 But the centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed.
MAT 8:9 "For I, too, am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, 'Go!' and he goes, and to another, 'Come!' and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this!' and he does it."
MAT 8:10 Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled, and said to those who were following, "Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel.
MAT 8:11 "And I say to you, that many shall come from east and west, and recline at the table with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven;
MAT 8:12 but the sons of the kingdom shall be cast out into the outer darkness; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. "
MAT 8:13 And Jesus said to the centurion, "Go your way; let it be done to you as you have believed." And the servant was healed that very hour.

LUK 7:1 When He had completed all His discourse in the hearing of the people, He went to Capernaum.
LUK 7:2 And a certain centurion's slave, who was highly regarded by him, was sick and about to die.
LUK 7:3 And when he heard about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders asking Him to come and save the life of his slave.
LUK 7:4 And when they had come to Jesus, they earnestly entreated Him, saying, "He is worthy for You to grant this to him;
LUK 7:5 for he loves our nation, and it was he who built us our synagogue. "
LUK 7:6 Now Jesus started on His way with them; and when He was already not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to Him, "Lord, do not trouble Yourself further, for I am not worthy for You to come under my roof;
LUK 7:7 for this reason I did not even consider myself worthy to come to You, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed.
LUK 7:8 "For I, too, am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, 'Go!' and he goes; and to another, 'Come!' and he comes; and to my slave, 'Do this!' and he does it."
LUK 7:9 Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled at him, and turned and said to the multitude that was following Him, "I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith."
LUK 7:10 And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health.

John the Baptist and the Kingdom (Galilee)

MAT 11:2 Now when John in prison heard of the works of Christ, he sent word by his disciples,
MAT 11:3 and said to Him, "Are You the Expected One, or shall we look for someone else?"

 

 

MAT 11:4 And Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and report to John what you hear and see:
MAT 11:5 the blind receive sight and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
MAT 11:6 "And blessed is he who keeps from stumbling over Me."
MAT 11:7 And as these were going away, Jesus began to speak to the multitudes about John, "What did you go out into the wilderness to look at? A reed shaken by the wind?
MAT 11:8 "But what did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? Behold, those who wear soft clothing are in kings' palaces.

MAT 11:9 "But why did you go out? To see a prophet? Yes, I say to you, and one who is more than a prophet.
MAT 11:10 "This is the one about whom it is written, 'Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You.'
MAT 11:11 "Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
MAT 11:12 "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force.
MAT 11:13 "For all the prophets and the Law prophesied until John.
MAT 11:14 "And if you care to accept it, he himself is Elijah, who was to come.
MAT 11:15 "He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
MAT 11:16 "But to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the market places, who call out to the other children,
MAT 11:17 and say,' We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn.'
MAT 11:18 "For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon!'
MAT 11:19 "The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, a friend of tax-gatherers and sinners!' Yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds."

LUK 7:18 And the disciples of John reported to him about all these things.
LUK 7:19 And summoning two of his disciples, John sent them to the Lord, saying, "Are You the Expected One, or do we look for someone else?"
LUK 7:20 And when the men had come to Him, they said, "John the Baptist has sent us to You, saying, 'Are You the Expected One, or do we look for someone else?'"
LUK 7:21 At that very time He cured many people of diseases and afflictions and evil spirits; and He granted sight to many who were blind.
LUK 7:22 And He answered and said to them, "Go and report to John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have the gospel preached to them.
LUK 7:23 "And blessed is he who keeps from stumbling over Me."
LUK 7:24 And when the messengers of John had left, He began to speak to the multitudes about John, "What did you go out into the wilderness to look at? A reed shaken by the wind?
LUK 7:25 "But what did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? Behold, those who are splendidly clothed and live in luxury are found in royal palaces.
LUK 7:26 "But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and one who is more than a prophet.
LUK 7:27 "This is the one about whom it is written, 'Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You.'
LUK 7:28 "I say to you, among those born of women, there is no one greater than John; yet he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he."

LUK 7:29 And when all the people and the tax-gatherers heard this, they acknowledged God's justice, having been baptized with the baptism of John.
LUK 7:30 But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected God's purpose for themselves, not having been baptized by John.
LUK 7:31 "To what then shall I compare the men of this generation, and what are they like?
LUK 7:32 "They are like children who sit in the market place and call to one another; and they say, 'We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not weep.'
LUK 7:33 "For John the Baptist has come eating no bread and drinking no wine; and you say, 'He has a demon!'
LUK 7:34 "The Son of Man has come eating and drinking; and you say, 'Behold, a gluttonous man, and a drunkard, a friend of tax-gatherers and sinners!'
LUK 7:35 "Yet wisdom is vindicated by all her children."

Scribes, Pharisees accuse Jesus of being possessed by Beelzebul

MAT 12:22 Then there was brought to Him a demon-possessed man who was blind and dumb, and He healed him, so that the dumb man spoke and saw.
MAT 12:23 And all the multitudes were amazed, and began to say, "This man cannot be the Son of David, can he?"
MAT 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, "This man casts out demons only by Beelzebul the ruler of the demons."

MAT 12:25 And knowing their thoughts He said to them, "Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself shall not stand.
MAT 12:26 "And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then shall his kingdom stand?
MAT 12:27 "And if I by Beelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? Consequently they shall be your judges.
MAT 12:28 "But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
MAT 12:29 "Or how can anyone enter the strong man's house and carry off his property, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.
MAT 12:30 "He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters.
MAT 12:31 "Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven.
MAT 12:32 "And whoever shall speak a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever shall speak against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age, or in the age to come.
MAT 12:33 "Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree bad, and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit.
MAT 12:34 "You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart.
MAT 12:35 "The good man out of his good treasure brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth what is evil.
MAT 12:36 "And I say to you, that every careless word that men shall speak, they shall render account for it in the day of judgment.
MAT 12:37 "For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned."

MAR 3:20 And He came home, and the multitude gathered again, to such an extent that they could not even eat a meal.
MAR 3:21 And when His own people heard of this, they went out to take custody of Him; for they were saying, "He has lost His senses."
MAR 3:22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem were saying, "He is possessed by Beelzebul," and "He casts out the demons by the ruler of the demons."
MAR 3:23 And He called them to Himself and began speaking to them in parables, "How can Satan cast out Satan?
MAR 3:24 "And if a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
MAR 3:25 "And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.
MAR 3:26 "And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but he is finished!
MAR 3:27 "But no one can enter the strong man's house and plunder his property unless he first binds the strong man, and then he will plunder his house.

 

 

 

MAR 3:28 "Truly I say to you, all sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they utter;
MAR 3:29 but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin "--
MAR 3:30 because they were saying, "He has an unclean spirit."

Real family of Jesus

MAT 12:46 While He was still speaking to the multitudes, behold, His mother and brothers were standing outside, seeking to speak to Him.
MAT 12:47 And someone said to Him, "Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside seeking to speak to You."
MAT 12:48 But He answered the one who was telling Him and said, "Who is My mother and who are My brothers?"
MAT 12:49 And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, He said, "Behold, My mother and My brothers!
MAT 12:50 "For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother."
MAR 3:31 And His mother and His brothers arrived, and standing outside they sent word to Him, and called Him.

MAR 3:32 And a multitude was sitting around Him, and they said to Him, "Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are outside looking for You."
MAR 3:33 And answering them, He said, "Who are My mother and My brothers?"

MAR 3:34 And looking about on those who were sitting around Him, He said, "Behold, My mother and My brothers!
MAR 3:35 "For whoever does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother."

LUK 8:19 And His mother and brothers came to Him, and they were unable to get to Him because of the crowd.

LUK 8:20 And it was reported to Him, "Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, wishing to see You."

 

 

LUK 8:21 But He answered and said to them, "My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it."
