Jesus in the Region Around Galilee (1)

Attempt to Withdraw (Bethsaida near Julias)

 

 

 

 

MAT 14:13 Now when Jesus heard it, He withdrew from there in a boat, to a lonely place by Himself; and when the multitudes heard of this, they followed Him on foot from the cities.

MAT 14:14 And when He went ashore, He saw a great multitude, and felt compassion for them, and healed their sick.

MAR 6:31 And He said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest a while." (For there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.)
MAR 6:32 And they went away in the boat to a lonely place by themselves.
MAR 6:33 And the people saw them going, and many recognized them, and they ran there together on foot from all the cities, and got there ahead of them.
MAR 6:34 And when He went ashore, He saw a great multitude, and He felt compassion for them because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things.
 

 

 

 

LUK 9:10b And taking them with Him, He withdrew by Himself to a city called Bethsaida.

 

 

 

LUK 9:11 But the multitudes were aware of this and followed Him; and welcoming them, He began speaking to them about the kingdom of God and curing those who had need of healing.

 

 

 

 

JOH 6:1 After these things Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee (or Tiberias).
JOH 6:2 And a great multitude was following Him, because they were seeing the signs which He was performing on those who were sick.
JOH 6:3 And Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat with His disciples.

5000 Fed

MAT 14:15 And when it was evening, the disciples came to Him, saying, "The place is desolate, and the time is already past; so send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves."

MAT 14:16 But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat!"

 

 

 

MAT 14:17 And they said to Him, "We have here only five loaves and two fish."
MAT 14:18 And He said, "Bring them here to Me."
MAT 14:19 And ordering the multitudes to recline on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave to the multitudes,
MAT 14:20 and they all ate, and were satisfied. And they picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets.
MAT 14:21 And there were about five thousand men who ate, aside from women and children.

MAR 6:35 And when it was already quite late, His disciples came up to Him and began saying, "The place is desolate and it is already quite late;
MAR 6:36 send them away so that they may go into the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat. "
MAR 6:37 But He answered and said to them, "You give them something to eat!" And they said to Him, "Shall we go and spend two hundred denarii on bread and give them something to eat?"
MAR 6:38 And He said to them, "How many loaves do you have? Go look!" And when they found out, they said, "Five and two fish."
MAR 6:39 And He commanded them all to recline by groups on the green grass.
MAR 6:40 And they reclined in companies of hundreds and of fifties.
MAR 6:41 And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed 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.
MAR 6:42 And they all ate and were satisfied.
MAR 6:43 And they picked up twelve full baskets of the broken pieces, and also of the fish.
MAR 6:44 And there were five thousand men who ate the loaves.
LUK 9:12 And the day began to decline, and the twelve came and said to Him, "Send the multitude away, that they may go into the surrounding villages and countryside and find lodging and get something to eat; for here we are in a desolate place."

LUK 9:13 But He said to them, "You give them something to eat!"

 

 

 

And they said, "We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless perhaps we go and buy food for all these people."
LUK 9:14 (For there were about five thousand men.) And He said to His disciples, "Have them recline to eat in groups of about fifty each."
LUK 9:15 And they did so, and had them all recline.
LUK 9:16 And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed them, and broke them, and kept giving them to the disciples to set before the multitude.
LUK 9:17 And they all ate and were satisfied; and the broken pieces which they had left over were picked up, twelve baskets full.

JOH 6:4 Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand.
JOH 6:5 Jesus therefore lifting up His eyes, and seeing that a great multitude was coming to Him, said to Philip, "Where are we to buy bread, that these may eat?"

JOH 6:6 And this He was saying to test him; for He Himself knew what He was intending to do.
JOH 6:7 Philip answered Him, "Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, for everyone to receive a little."
JOH 6:8 One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to Him,
JOH 6:9 "There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are these for so many people?"
JOH 6:10 Jesus said, "Have the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
JOH 6:11 Jesus therefore took the loaves; and having given thanks, He distributed to those who were seated; likewise also of the fish as much as they wanted.
JOH 6:12 And when they were filled, He said to His disciples, "Gather up the leftover fragments that nothing may be lost."
JOH 6:13 And so they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves, which were left over by those who had eaten.

Jesus Withdraws to a Mountain

MAT 14:22 And immediately He made the disciples get into the boat, and go ahead of Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away.
MAT 14:23 And after He had sent the multitudes away, He went up to the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone.
MAR 6:45 And immediately He made His disciples get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side to Bethsaida, while He Himself was sending the multitude away.
MAR 6:46 And after bidding them farewell, He departed to the mountain to pray.

JOH 6:14 When therefore the people saw the sign which He had performed, they said, "This is of a truth the Prophet who is to come into the world."
JOH 6:15 Jesus therefore perceiving that they were intending to come and take Him by force, to make Him king, withdrew again to the mountain by Himself alone.

Jesus Walks on the Water (Sea of Galilee)

MAT 14:24 But the boat was already many stadia away from the land, battered by the waves; for the wind was contrary.
MAT 14:25 And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea.
MAT 14:26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were frightened, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear.
MAT 14:27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, "Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid."
MAT 14:28 And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water."
MAT 14:29 And He said, "Come!" And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
MAT 14:30 But seeing the wind, he became afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!"
MAT 14:31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
MAT 14:32 And when they got into the boat, the wind stopped.
MAT 14:33 And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, "You are certainly God's Son!"
MAR 6:47 And when it was evening, the boat was in the midst of the sea, and He was alone on the land.
MAR 6:48 And seeing them straining at the oars, for the wind was against them, at about the fourth watch of the night, He came to them, walking on the sea; and He intended to pass by them.
MAR 6:49 But when they saw Him walking on the sea, they supposed that it was a ghost, and cried out;
MAR 6:50 for they all saw Him and were frightened. But immediately He spoke with them and said to them, "Take courage; it is I, do not be afraid."

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAR 6:51 And He got into the boat with them, and the wind stopped; and they were greatly astonished,
MAR 6:52 for they had not gained any insight from the incident of the loaves, but their heart was hardened.
MAR 6:53 And when they had crossed over they came to land at Gennesaret, and moored to the shore.

JOH 6:16 Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea,
JOH 6:17 and after getting into a boat, they started to cross the sea to Capernaum. And it had already become dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them.
JOH 6:18 And the sea began to be stirred up because a strong wind was blowing.
JOH 6:19 When therefore they had rowed about three or four miles, they beheld Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near to the boat; and they were frightened.
JOH 6:20 But He said to them, "It is I; do not be afraid."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JOH 6:21 They were willing therefore to receive Him into the boat; and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going.

Healings (Gennesaret)

MAT 14:34 And when they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret.

MAT 14:35 And when the men of that place recognized Him, they sent into all that surrounding district and brought to Him all who were sick;

 

MAT 14:36 and they began to entreat Him that they might just touch the fringe of His cloak; and as many as touched it were cured.

MAR 6:53 And when they had crossed over they came to land at Gennesaret, and moored to the shore.
MAR 6:54 And when they had come out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him,
MAR 6:55 and ran about that whole country and began to carry about on their pallets those who were sick, to the place they heard He was.
MAR 6:56 And wherever He entered villages, or cities, or countryside, they were laying the sick in the market places, and entreating Him that they might just touch the fringe of His cloak; and as many as touched it were being cured.

Warning About Jewish Leaders

MAT 15:1 Then some Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem, saying,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAT 15:2 "Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread."
MAT 15:3 And He answered and said to them, "And why do you yourselves transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?
MAT 15:4 "For God said, 'Honor your father and mother,' and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be put to death.'
MAT 15:5 "But you say, 'Whoever shall say to his father or mother," Anything of mine you might have been helped by has been given to God, "
MAT 15:6 he is not to honor his father or his mother.' And thus you invalidated the word of God for the sake of your tradition.

 

 

 

 

 

 


MAT 15:10 And after He called the multitude to Him, He said to them, "Hear, and understand.
MAT 15:11 "Not what enters into the mouth defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man."
MAT 15:12 Then the disciples came and said to Him, "Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this statement?"
MAT 15:13 But He answered and said, "Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be rooted up.
MAT 15:14 "Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit."
MAT 15:15 And Peter answered and said to Him, "Explain the parable to us."
MAT 15:16 And He said, "Are you still lacking in understanding also?
MAT 15:17 "Do you not understand that everything that goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and is eliminated?
MAT 15:18 "But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man.

MAT 15:19 "For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders.

MAT 15:20 "These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the man."

MAR 7:1 And the Pharisees and some of the scribes gathered together around Him when they had come from Jerusalem,
MAR 7:2 and had seen that some of His disciples were eating their bread with impure hands, that is, unwashed.
MAR 7:3 (For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they carefully wash their hands, thus observing the traditions of the elders;
MAR 7:4 and when they come from the market place, they do not eat unless they cleanse themselves; and there are many other things which they have received in order to observe, such as the washing of cups and pitchers and copper pots.)
MAR 7:5 And the Pharisees and the scribes asked Him, "Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat their bread with impure hands?"
MAR 7:6 And He said to them, "Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, 'This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far away from Me.
MAR 7:7 'But in vain do they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.'
MAR 7:8 "Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men."
MAR 7:9 He was also saying to them, "You nicely set aside the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition.
MAR 7:10 "For Moses said, 'Honor your father and your mother'; and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be put to death';
MAR 7:11 but you say,' If a man says to his father or his mother, anything of mine you might have been helped by is Corban (that is to say, given to God),'
MAR 7:12 you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or his mother;
MAR 7:13 thus invalidating the word of God by your tradition which you have handed down; and you do many things such as that. "
MAR 7:14 And after He called the multitude to Him again, He began saying to them, "Listen to Me, all of you, and understand:
MAR 7:15 there is nothing outside the man which going into him can defile him; but the things which proceed out of the man are what defile the man.
MAR 7:16 [ "If any man has ears to hear, let him hear."]

 

 

 

 

 

MAR 7:17 And when leaving the multitude, He had entered the house, His disciples questioned Him about the parable.
MAR 7:18 And He said to them, "Are you so lacking in understanding also? Do you not understand that whatever goes into the man from outside cannot defile him;
MAR 7:19 because it does not go into his heart, but into his stomach, and is eliminated? "(Thus He declared all foods clean.)
MAR 7:20 And He was saying, "That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man.
MAR 7:21 "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries,
MAR 7:22 deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness.
MAR 7:23 "All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man."

JOH 7:1 And after these things Jesus was walking in Galilee; for He was unwilling to walk in Judea, because the Jews were seeking to kill Him.
