Author’s note

This work is an experiment in connecting the four canonical Gospels into one narrative. The content of the work consists only of words and phrases found in the four Gospels; consequently the resulting text is entirely assembled from the canonical Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Hence its name: “United Gospel”. As a source material, we have used the King James Version of the Bible. In some cases, explanatory words were added for clarity, even though they are not found in the King James Version; such words are in brackets.

To align the four Gospels, the tables of synoptic parallels were used. The alignment was based on the Gospel Synopsis from the Orthodox Bible, which reproduces a related publication of the Moscow Patriarchate (Bible. Moscow: Russian Bible Society, 2000) In some cases, the comparison was made based the table borrowed from the Belgian edition of the Holy Scriptures (Bible. Brussels: Life with God, 1983). It is worth noting that, for the goals mentioned above, none of the two tables were acceptable “as is”, for a number of reasons. In this respect, the interpretation of the Gospel narrative about the resurrection of Jesus Christ proved to be the most critical. To solve the apparent conflict, we have used the sequence from the Harmony of the Gospels, quoted in Seraphim Slobodsky’s “The Law of God” (“The Law of God for Families and Schools”. Jordanville: Holy Trinity Monastery, 1967). Based on the analysis of the above mentioned sources, a new table of synoptic parallels was created according to which the following “United Gospel” was drafted.

While working on the “United Gospel”, the issue of chronology was something we could not ignore. This meant not only determining the order of certain events but also their dating. To solve problem with a satisfactory result, we had to made chonological calculations all over again. Such a complex approach to dating of the Gospel events also helped to clarify a number of theological issues and resolve certain problems related to the New Testament Bible studies. For instance, it was clearly seen that Lk 6:1 talks about Pentecost, not Easter.

The above mentioned calculations with commentaries can be found in my book “Biblical Chronology”.

United Gospel

UG 1. Prologue (Mk 1:1; Lk 1:1—4; Jn 1:1—18)

1:1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, (Lk 1:1)

1:2 Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word; (Lk 1:2)

1:3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus, (Lk 1:3)

1:4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed. (Lk 1:4)

1:5 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Mk 1:1)

1:6 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Jn 1:1)

1:7 The same was in the beginning with God. (Jn 1:2)

1:8 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (Jn 1:3)

1:9 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. (Jn 1:4)

1:10 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (Jn 1:5)

1:11 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. (Jn 1:6)

1:12 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. (Jn 1:7)

1:13 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. (Jn 1:8)

1:14 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. (Jn 1:9)

1:15 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. (Jn 1:10)

1:16 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. (Jn 1:11)

1:17 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: (Jn 1:12)

1:18 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (Jn 1:13)

1:19 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. (Jn 1:14)

1:20 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. (Jn 1:15)

1:21 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. (Jn 1:16)

1:22 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. (Jn 1:17)

1:23 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. (Jn 1:18)

UG 2. Genealogy of Jesus Christ (Mt 1:1—17; Lk 3:23b-38)

2:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. (Mt 1:1)

2:2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren; (Mt 1:2)

2:3 And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram; (Mt 1:3)

2:4 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; (Mt 1:4)

2:5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; (Mt 1:5)

2:6 And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias; (Mt 1:6)

2:7 And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa; (Mt 1:7)

2:8 And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias; (Mt 1:8)

2:9 And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias; (Mt 1:9)

2:10 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias; (Mt 1:10)

2:11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon: (Mt 1:11)

2:12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel; (Mt 1:12)

2:13 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor; (Mt 1:13)

2:14 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; (Mt 1:14)

2:15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; (Mt 1:15)

2:16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. (Mt 1:16)

2:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations. (Mt 1:17)

UG 3. Message for Zacharias about the birth of John the Baptist (Lk 1:5—25)

3:1 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. (Lk 1:5)

3:2 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. (Lk 1:6)

3:3 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years. (Lk 1:7)

3:4 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course, (Lk 1:8)

3:5 According to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. (Lk 1:9)

3:6 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense. (Lk 1:10)

3:7 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. (Lk 1:11)

3:8 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. (Lk 1:12)

3:9 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. (Lk 1:13)

3:10 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. (Lk 1:14)

3:11 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb. (Lk 1:15)

3:12 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. (Lk 1:16)

3:13 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. (Lk 1:17)

3:14 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years. (Lk 1:18)

3:15 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. (Lk 1:19)

3:16 And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. (Lk 1:20)

3:17 And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple. (Lk 1:21)

3:18 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless. (Lk 1:22)

3:19 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house. (Lk 1:23)

3:20 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying, (Lk 1:24)

3:21 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men. (Lk 1:25)

UG 4. Message for the Virgin Mary (Lk 1:26—38)

4:1 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, (Lk 1:26)

4:2 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. (Lk 1:27)

4:3 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. (Lk 1:28)

4:4 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. (Lk 1:29)

4:5 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. (Lk 1:30)

4:6 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. (Lk 1:31)

4:7 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: (Lk 1:32)

4:8 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. (Lk 1:33)

4:9 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? (Lk 1:34)

4:10 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. (Lk 1:35)

4:11 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. (Lk 1:36)

4:12 For with God nothing shall be impossible. (Lk 1:37)

4:13 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her. (Lk 1:38)

UG 5. The Virgin Mary in the house of Elisabeth (Lk 1:39—56)

5:1 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; (Lk 1:39)

5:2 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. (Lk 1:40)

5:3 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: (Lk 1:41)

5:4 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. (Lk 1:42)

5:5 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? (Lk 1:43)

5:6 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. (Lk 1:44)

5:7 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. (Lk 1:45)

5:8 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, (Lk 1:46)

5:9 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. (Lk 1:47)

5:10 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. (Lk 1:48)

5:11 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. (Lk 1:49)

5:12 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. (Lk 1:50)

5:13 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. (Lk 1:51)

5:14 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. (Lk 1:52)

5:15 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. (Lk 1:53)

5:16 He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy; (Lk 1:54)

5:17 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever. (Lk 1:55)

5:18 And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house. (Lk 1:56)

UG 6. The birth of John the Baptist (Lk 1:57—58)

6:1 Now Elisabeth’s full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son. (Lk 1:57)

6:2 And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her. (Lk 1:58)

UG 7. Circumcision of John the Baptist. Stay in the desert (Lk 1:59—80)

7:1 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father. (Lk 1:59)

7:2 And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John. (Lk 1:60)

7:3 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name. (Lk 1:61)

7:4 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. (Lk 1:62)

7:5 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all. (Lk 1:63)

7:6 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God. (Lk 1:64)

7:7 And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea. (Lk 1:65)

7:8 And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him. (Lk 1:66)

7:9 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, (Lk 1:67)

7:10 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, (Lk 1:68)

7:11 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; (Lk 1:69)

7:12 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: (Lk 1:70)

7:13 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; (Lk 1:71)

7:14 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant; (Lk 1:72)

7:15 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham, (Lk 1:73)

7:16 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, (Lk 1:74)

7:17 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life. (Lk 1:75)

7:18 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways; (Lk 1:76)

7:19 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins, (Lk 1:77)

7:20 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, (Lk 1:78)

7:21 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. (Lk 1:79)

7:22 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel. (Lk 1:80)

UG 8. Message for Joseph about Jesus (Mt 1:18—25a)

8:1 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. (Mt 1:18)

8:2 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. (Mt 1:19)

8:3 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. (Mt 1:20)

8:4 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. (Mt 1:21)

8:5 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, (Mt 1:22)

8:6 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Mt 1:23)

8:7 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: (Mt 1:24)

8:8 And not knew her. (Mt 1:25a)

UG 9. The nativity of Jesus Christ (Mt 1:25b; Lk 2:1—7)

9:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (Lk 2:1)

9:2 And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria. (Lk 2:2)

9:3 (And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.) (Lk 2:3)

9:4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) (Lk 2:4)

9:5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. (Lk 2:5)

9:6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. (Lk 2:6)

9:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, (Mt 1:25b; Lk 2:7)

9:8 And wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. (Lk 2:7)

UG 10. Message for the shepherds (Lk 2:8—14)

10:1 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. (Lk 2:8)

10:2 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. (Lk 2:9)

10:3 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. (Lk 2:10)

10:4 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (Lk 2:11)

10:5 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. (Lk 2:12)

10:6 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, (Lk 2:13)

10:7 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. (Lk 2:14)

UG 11. Worship of the shepherds (Lk 2:15—20)

11:1 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. (Lk 2:15)

11:2 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. (Lk 2:16)

11:3 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. (Lk 2:17)

11:4 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. (Lk 2:18)

11:5 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. (Lk 2:19)

11:6 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. (Lk 2:20)

UG 12. Circumcision and naming of the name Jesus (Mt 1:25c; Lk 2:21)

12:1 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, (Mt 1:25c; Lk 2:21)

12:2 Which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb. (Lk 2:21)

UG 13. The presentation of Jesus in the temple (Lk 2:22—38)

13:1 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord; (Lk 2:22)

13:2 (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) (Lk 2:23)

13:3 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons. (Lk 2:24)

13:4 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. (Lk 2:25)

13:10 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; (Lk 2:31)

14:8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also. (Mt 2:8)

14:9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. (Mt 2:9)

14:10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. (Mt 2:10)

17:6 And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth: (Mt 2:23; Lk 2:39)

18:11 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them. (Lk 2:50)

18:12 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart. (Lk 2:51)

19:2 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the Baptist, the son of Zacharias, in the wilderness of Judaea. (Mt 3:1; Lk 3:2)

19:3 In those days John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. (Mt 3:1; Mk 1:4; Lk 3:3)

19:4 And he came into all the country about Jordan (Lk 3:3)

19:8 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. (Lk 3:6)

19:9 And the same John was clothed with his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. (Mt 3:4; Mk 1:6)

19:10 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, (Mt 3:5; Mk 1:5)

19:11 And were baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. (Mt 3:6; Mk 1:5)

19:12 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? (Mt 3:7; Lk 3:7)

19:13 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, (Mt 3:8; Lk 3:8)

19:14 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. (Mt 3:9; Lk 3:8)

19:15 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. (Mt 3:10; Lk 3:9)

19:16 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then? (Lk 3:10)

19:17 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise. (Lk 3:11)

19:18 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do? (Lk 3:12)

19:19 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you. (Lk 3:13)

19:20 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages. (Lk 3:14)

19:21 And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not. (Lk 3:15)

19:23 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. (Jn 1:20)

19:24 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No. (Jn 1:21)

19:25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? (Jn 1:22)

19:26 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord. (Jn 1:23)

19:27 As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. (Mt 3:3; Mk 1:3; Lk 3:4; Jn 1:23)

19:28 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees. (Jn 1:24)

19:29 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet? (Jn 1:25)

19:30 John answered them, saying, I baptize you with water unto repentance: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not; (Mt 3:11; Mk 1:8; Lk 3:16; Jn 1:26)

19:31 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, is mightier than I, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose, [and] to bear shoes. (Mt 3:11; Mk 1:7; Lk 3:16; Jn 1:27)

19:32 I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire. (Mt 3:11; Mk 1:8; Lk 3:16)

19:33 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather his wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable. (Mt 3:12; Lk 3:17)

20:3 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. (Mt 3:15)

20:4 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying. (Mt 3:16; Mk 1:9; Lk 3:21)

21:6 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them in a moment of time. (Mt 4:8; Lk 4:5)

21:7 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. (Mt 4:9; Lk 4:6)

21:8 If thou therefore wilt fall down and worship me, all shall be thine. (Mt 4:9; Lk 4:7)

21:9 Then Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. (Mt 4:10; Lk 4:8)

21:10 And the devil brought him to holy city Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, (Mt 4:5; Lk 4:9)

21:11 And said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: (Mt 4:6; Lk 4:9)

21:12 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee, to keep thee: (Mt 4:6; Lk 4:10)

21:13 And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. (Mt 4:6; Lk 4:11)

21:14 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. (Mt 4:7; Lk 4:12)

21:15 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season. (Mt 4:11; Lk 4:13)

24:5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. (Jn 2:5)

26:3 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; (Jn 2:15)

26:4 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise. (Jn 2:16)

26:5 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. (Jn 2:17)

26:6 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? (Jn 2:18)

26:7 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. (Jn 2:19)

27:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? (Jn 3:4)

27:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (Jn 3:5)

27:9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? (Jn 3:9)

27:10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? (Jn 3:10)

27:11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. (Jn 3:11)

27:12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? (Jn 3:12)

27:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. (Jn 3:13)

27:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: (Jn 3:14)

27:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. (Jn 3:15)

27:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (Jn 3:16)

27:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (Jn 3:17)

27:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (Jn 3:18)

27:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. (Jn 3:19)

27:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. (Jn 3:20)

27:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. (Jn 3:21)

UG 28. Jesus with disciples in Judea (Jn 3:22)

28:1 After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized. (Jn 3:22)

UG 29. The last message of John the Baptist about Jesus Christ for disciples (Jn 3:23—36)

29:1 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized. (Jn 3:23)

29:2 For John was not yet cast into prison. (Jn 3:24)

29:3 Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purifying. (Jn 3:25)

29:4 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. (Jn 3:26)

29:5 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. (Jn 3:27)

29:6 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. (Jn 3:28)

29:7 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. (Jn 3:29)

29:8 He must increase, but I must decrease. (Jn 3:30)

29:9 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. (Jn 3:31)

29:10 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. (Jn 3:32)

29:11 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. (Jn 3:33)

29:12 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. (Jn 3:34)

29:13 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. (Jn 3:35)

29:14 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (Jn 3:36)

UG 30. The shut up of John the Baptist in prison (Mt 14:3—5; Mk 6:17—20; Lk 3:19—20)

30:1 But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philip’s wife, for he had married her, and for all the evils which Herod had done, (Mt 14:3; Mk 6:17; Lk 3:19)

30:2 Added yet this above all, that himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him, and shut up John in prison. (Mt 14:3; Mk 6:17; Lk 3:20)

30:3 For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife. (Mt 14:4; Mk 6:18)

30:4 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not: (Mk 6:19)

30:5 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly. (Mk 6:20)

30:6 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet. (Mt 14:5)

UG 31. Return to Galilee. The beginning of the gospel sermon (Mt 4:12; Mk 1:14—15; Lk 4:14—15; Jn 4:1—3)

31:1 When therefore the Lord knew that John was cast into prison, [and] how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, (Mt 4:12; Mk 1:14; Jn 4:1)

31:2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,) (Jn 4:2)

31:3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee, (Mt 4:12; Mk 1:14; Lk 4:14; Jn 4:3)

31:4 Preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God in the power of the Spirit, (Mk 1:14; Lk 4:14)

31:5 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. (Mk 1:15)

31:6 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. (Lk 4:15)

31:7 And there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. (Lk 4:14)

UG 32. Conversation with the Samaritan woman (Jn 4:4—42)

32:1 And he must needs go through Samaria. (Jn 4:4)

32:2 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. (Jn 4:5)

32:3 Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour. (Jn 4:6)

32:4 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. (Jn 4:7)

32:5 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) (Jn 4:8)

32:6 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. (Jn 4:9)

32:7 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. (Jn 4:10)

32:8 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? (Jn 4:11)

32:9 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? (Jn 4:12)

32:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: (Jn 4:13)

32:11 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. (Jn 4:14)

32:12 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. (Jn 4:15)

32:13 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. (Jn 4:16)

32:14 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: (Jn 4:17)

32:15 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly. (Jn 4:18)

32:16 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. (Jn 4:19)

32:17 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. (Jn 4:20)

32:18 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. (Jn 4:21)

32:19 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. (Jn 4:22)

32:20 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. (Jn 4:23)

32:21 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (Jn 4:24)

32:22 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. (Jn 4:25)

32:23 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he. (Jn 4:26)

32:24 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her? (Jn 4:27)

32:25 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, (Jn 4:28)

32:26 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? (Jn 4:29)

32:27 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him. (Jn 4:30)

32:28 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat. (Jn 4:31)

32:29 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. (Jn 4:32)

32:30 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat? (Jn 4:33)

32:31 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. (Jn 4:34)

32:32 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. (Jn 4:35)

32:33 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. (Jn 4:36)

32:34 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. (Jn 4:37)

32:35 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours. (Jn 4:38)

32:36 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did. (Jn 4:39)

32:37 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days. (Jn 4:40)

32:38 And many more believed because of his own word; (Jn 4:41)

32:39 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world. (Jn 4:42)

UG 33. The coming of Jesus Christ to Cana is Galilean. Healing of the son of a capernaum courtier (Jn 4:43—54)

33:1 Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee. (Jn 4:43)

33:2 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country. (Jn 4:44)

33:3 Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast. (Jn 4:45)

33:4 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum. (Jn 4:46)

33:5 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death. (Jn 4:47)

33:6 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. (Jn 4:48)

33:7 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die. (Jn 4:49)

33:8 Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. (Jn 4:50)

33:9 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth. (Jn 4:51)

33:10 Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. (Jn 4:52)

33:11 So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house. (Jn 4:53)

33:12 This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee. (Jn 4:54)

34:2 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, (Lk 4:17)

34:3 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, (Lk 4:18)

34:4 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. (Lk 4:19)

34:5 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. (Lk 4:20)

34:6 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. (Lk 4:21)

34:7 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son? (Lk 4:22)

34:8 And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country. (Lk 4:23)

34:9 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country. (Lk 4:24)

34:10 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land; (Lk 4:25)

34:11 But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow. (Lk 4:26)

34:12 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian. (Lk 4:27)

34:13 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, (Lk 4:28)

34:14 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong. (Lk 4:29)

35:2 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, (Mt 4:14)

35:3 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; (Mt 4:15)

35:4 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. (Mt 4:16)

35:5 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. (Mt 4:17)

35:6 And taught them on the sabbath days. (Lk 4:31)

36:2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. (Lk 5:2)

36:3 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. (Mt 4:18; Mk 1:16)

36:4 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. (Lk 5:3)

36:5 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. (Lk 5:4)

36:6 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. (Lk 5:5)

36:7 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. (Lk 5:6)

36:8 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. (Lk 5:7)

36:9 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. (Lk 5:8)

36:10 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken: (Lk 5:9)

36:11 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not. (Lk 5:10)

36:15 And straightway he called them. (Mt 4:21; Mk 1:20)

37:5 And when the unclean spirit [of the] devil had thrown him in the midst, torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him, and hurt him not. (Mk 1:26; Lk 4:35)

37:6 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority and power commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him, and come out. (Mk 1:27; Lk 4:36)

41:5 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. (Mt 8:4; Mk 1:44; Lk 5:14)

41:6 But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter. (Mk 1:45)

41:7 But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities. (Lk 5:15)

41:8 Insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without. And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed. And they came to him from every quarter. (Mk 1:45; Lk 5:16)

UG 42. Healing of the paralytic in Capernaum (Mt 9:1—8; Mk 2:1—12; Lk 5:17—26)

42:1 After some days he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city, and again he entered into Capernaum; and it was noised that he was in the house. (Mt 9:1; Mk 2:1)

42:2 And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them. (Mk 2:2)

42:3 And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them. (Lk 5:17)

42:4 And, behold, four men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: (Mk 2:3; Lk 5:18)

42:5 And they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him. (Lk 5:18)

42:6 And when they could not find by what way they might bring a man sick of the palsy with his couch in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay through the tiling into the midst before Jesus. (Mt 9:2; Mk 2:4; Lk 5:19)

42:7 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, be of good cheer, thy sins are forgiven thee. (Mt 9:2; Mk 2:5; Lk 5:20)

42:8 But there were certain of the scribes and the Pharisees sitting there, and began to reason, saying within themselves, (Mt 9:3; Mk 2:6; Lk 5:21)

42:9 Who is this? Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only? (Mt 9:3; Mk 2:7; Lk 5:21)

42:10 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said answering unto them, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? (Mt 9:4; Mk 2:8; Lk 5:22)

42:11 For whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk? (Mt 9:5; Mk 2:9; Lk 5:23)

42:12 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) (Mt 9:6; Mk 2:10; Lk 5:24)

42:13 I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. (Mt 9:6; Mk 2:11; Lk 5:24)

42:14 And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all, and departed to his house, glorifying God. (Mt 9:7; Mk 2:12; Lk 5:25)

42:15 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day, we never saw it on this fashion. (Mt 9:8; Mk 2:12; Lk 5:26)

UG 43. The call of Levi Matthew to the apostleship (Mt 9:9—13; Mk 2:13—17; Lk 5:27—32)

43:1 And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught them. (Mk 2:13)

43:2 And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a publican, named Levi Matthew the son of Alphaeus, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me. (Mt 9:9; Mk 2:14; Lk 5:27)

43:3 And he left all, rose up, and followed him. (Mt 9:9; Mk 2:14; Lk 5:28)

43:4 And Levi made him a great feast in his own house: and it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him. (Mt 9:10; Mk 2:15; Lk 5:29)

43:5 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they murmured against his disciples, saying, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? (Mt 9:11; Mk 2:16; Lk 5:30)

43:6 But when Jesus heard that, he answering said unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick, (Mt 9:12; Mk 2:17; Lk 5:31)

43:7 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: (Mt 9:13)

43:8 For I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. (Mt 9:13; Mk 2:17; Lk 5:32)

UG 44. Answer to the disciples of John on fasting (Mt 9:14—17; Mk 2:18—22; Lk 5:33—39)

44:1 And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thy disciples fast not, but thine eat and drink? (Mt 9:14; Mk 2:18; Lk 5:33)

44:2 And Jesus said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast? Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. (Mt 9:15; Mk 2:19; Lk 5:34)

44:3 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days. (Mt 9:15; Mk 2:20; Lk 5:35)

44:4 And he spake also a parable unto them; no man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old; for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. (Mt 9:16; Mk 2:21; Lk 5:36)

44:5 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish. (Mt 9:17; Mk 2:22; Lk 5:37)

44:6 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved. (Mt 9:17; Mk 2:22; Lk 5:38)

44:7 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better. (Lk 5:39)

Events from Pentecost to second Passover

UG 45. Jesus Christ in Jerusalem on the feast of Pentecost. Healing of the paralytic around the Sheep pool (Jn 5:1—16)

45:1 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. (Jn 5:1)

45:2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. (Jn 5:2)

45:3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. (Jn 5:3)

45:4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. (Jn 5:4)

45:5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. (Jn 5:5)

45:6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? (Jn 5:6)

45:7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. (Jn 5:7)

45:8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. (Jn 5:8)

45:9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath. (Jn 5:9)

45:10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed. (Jn 5:10)

45:11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk. (Jn 5:11)

45:12 Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk? (Jn 5:12)

45:13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place. (Jn 5:13)

45:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. (Jn 5:14)

45:15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole. (Jn 5:15)

45:16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. (Jn 5:16)

UG 46. The new message of Jesus Christ about himself (Jn 5:17—47)

46:1 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. (Jn 5:17)

46:2 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. (Jn 5:18)

46:3 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. (Jn 5:19)

46:4 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. (Jn 5:20)

46:5 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. (Jn 5:21)

46:6 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: (Jn 5:22)

46:7 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. (Jn 5:23)

46:8 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (Jn 5:24)

46:9 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. (Jn 5:25)

46:10 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; (Jn 5:26)

46:11 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. (Jn 5:27)

46:12 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, (Jn 5:28)

46:13 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. (Jn 5:29)

46:14 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. (Jn 5:30)

46:15 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. (Jn 5:31)

46:16 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. (Jn 5:32)

46:17 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. (Jn 5:33)

46:18 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. (Jn 5:34)

46:19 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. (Jn 5:35)

46:20 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. (Jn 5:36)

46:21 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. (Jn 5:37)

46:22 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. (Jn 5:38)

46:23 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. (Jn 5:39)

46:24 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. (Jn 5:40)

46:25 I receive not honour from men. (Jn 5:41)

46:26 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. (Jn 5:42)

46:27 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. (Jn 5:43)

46:28 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? (Jn 5:44)

46:29 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. (Jn 5:45)

46:30 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me. (Jn 5:46)

46:31 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words? (Jn 5:47)

UG 47. About the meaning of the sabbath. Pluck the ears of corn (Mt 12:1—8; Mk 2:23—28; Lk 6:1—5)

47:1 And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first [Pentecost], that Jesus went through the corn fields; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat, rubbing them in their hands. (Mt 12:1; Mk 2:23; Lk 6:1)

47:2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day. (Mt 12:2; Mk 2:24; Lk 6:2)

47:3 And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, and they that were with him; (Mt 12:3; Mk 2:25; Lk 6:3)

47:4 How he entered into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone? (Mt 12:4; Mk 2:26; Lk 6:4)

47:5 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless? (Mt 12:5)

47:6 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple. (Mt 12:6)

47:7 But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless. (Mt 12:7)

47:8 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: (Mk 2:27; Lk 6:5)

47:9 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath. (Mt 12:8; Mk 2:28; Lk 6:5)

UG 48. Healing of the man with withered hand (Mt 12:9—13; Mk 3:1—5; Lk 6:6—10)

48:1 And when he was departed thence, it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: (Mt 12:9; Mk 3:1; Lk 6:6)

48:2 And, behold, there was a man whose right hand was withered. (Mt 12:10; Mk 3:1; Lk 6:6)

48:3 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether [Jesus] would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him. (Mk 3:2; Lk 6:7)

48:4 And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him. (Mt 12:10)

48:5 But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth. (Mk 3:3; Lk 6:8)

48:6 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it? But they held their peace. (Mk 3:4; Lk 6:9)

48:7 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? (Mt 12:11)

48:8 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. (Mt 12:12)

48:9 And when he had looked round about on them all with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other. (Mt 12:13; Mk 3:5; Lk 6:10)

UG 49. The pharisees’ anger and the people’s desire for Jesus (Mt 12:14—21; Mk 3:6—12; Lk 6:11)

49:1 And the Pharisees were filled with madness; and then they went out, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus, how they might destroy him. (Mt 12:14; Mk 3:6; Lk 6:11)

49:2 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself with his disciples from thence to the sea: (Mt 12:15; Mk 3:7)

49:3 And great multitudes followed him from Galilee, and from Judaea, (Mt 12:15; Mk 3:7)

49:4 And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him. (Mk 3:8)

49:5 And he healed them all (Mt 12:15)

49:6 And charged them that they should not make him known: (Mt 12:16)

49:7 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, (Mt 12:17)

49:8 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 shew judgment to the Gentiles; (Mt 12:18)

49:9 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets; (Mt 12:19)

49:10 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory; (Mt 12:20)

49:11 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust. (Mt 12:21)

49:12 And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him. (Mk 3:9)

49:13 For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues. (Mk 3:10)

49:14 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. (Mk 3:11)

49:15 And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known. (Mk 3:12)

UG 50. The election of 12 apostles (Mt 10:1—4; Mk 3:13—19; Lk 6:12—16)

50:1 And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. (Mk 3:13; Lk 6:12)

50:2 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples whom he would, and they came unto him: (Mk 3:13; Lk 6:13)

50:3 and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles. (Mt 10:1; Mk 3:14; Lk 6:13)

50:4 And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach. (Mk 3:14)

50:5 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast out devils, and power to heal sicknesses, to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. (Mt 10:1; Mk 3:15)

50:6 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; the first, Simon, (whom he also named Peter [Cephas],) (Mt 10:2; Mk 3:16; Lk 6:14)

50:7 And Andrew his brother; (Mt 10:2; Mk 3:18; Lk 6:14)

50:8 And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder; (Mt 10:2; Mk 3:17; Lk 6:14)

50:9 Philip and Bartholomew; (Mt 10:3; Mk 3:18; Lk 6:14)

50:10 Thomas and [Levi] Matthew the publican; (Mt 10:3; Mk 3:18; Lk 6:15)

50:11 James the son of Alphaeus, and (Mt 10:3; Mk 3:18; Lk 6:15)

50:12 Judas (the [son] of James) Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; (Mt 10:3; Mk 3:18; Lk 6:16)

50:13 Simon the Canaanite, called Zelotes, (Mt 10:4; Mk 3:18; Lk 6:15)

50:14 And Judas Iscariot, who also was the traitor, which betrayed him. (Mt 10:4; Mk 3:19; Lk 6:16)

UG 51. Sermon on a mountain (Mt 5:1—7:29; Lk 6:17—49)

51:1 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; (Lk 6:17)

51:2 And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed. (Lk 6:18)

51:3 And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all. (Lk 6:19)

51:4 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him. (Mt 5:1)

51:5 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, (Mt 5:2; Lk 6:20)

51:6 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of God. (Mt 5:3; Lk 6:20)

51:7 Blessed are they that mourn [and] weep now: for they shall be comforted [and] laugh. (Mt 5:4; Lk 6:21)

51:8 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. (Mt 5:5)

51:9 Blessed are they which do hunger now and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. (Mt 5:6; Lk 6:21)

51:10 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. (Mt 5:7)

51:11 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. (Mt 5:8)

51:12 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. (Mt 5:9)

51:13 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Mt 5:10)

51:14 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. (Mt 5:11; Lk 6:22)

51:15 Rejoice ye in that day, and be exceeding glad: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets which were before you. (Mt 5:12; Lk 6:23)

51:16 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. (Lk 6:24)

51:17 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. (Lk 6:25)

51:18 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets. (Lk 6:26)

51:19 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. (Mt 5:13)

51:20 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. (Mt 5:14)

51:21 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. (Mt 5:15)

51:22 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (Mt 5:16)

51:23 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. (Mt 5:17)

51:24 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. (Mt 5:18)

51:25 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Mt 5:19)

51:26 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Mt 5:20)

51:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: (Mt 5:21)

51:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. (Mt 5:22)

51:29 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; (Mt 5:23)

51:30 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. (Mt 5:24)

51:31 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. (Mt 5:25)

51:32 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing. (Mt 5:26)

51:33 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: (Mt 5:27)

51:34 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. (Mt 5:28)

51:35 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. (Mt 5:29)

51:36 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. (Mt 5:30)

51:37 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: (Mt 5:31)

51:38 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. (Mt 5:32)

51:39 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: (Mt 5:33)

51:40 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne: (Mt 5:34)

51:41 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. (Mt 5:35)

51:42 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. (Mt 5:36)

51:43 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. (Mt 5:37)

51:44 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: (Mt 5:38)

51:45 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn [and] offer to him the other also. (Mt 5:39; Lk 6:29)

51:46 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. (Mt 5:40; Lk 6:29)

51:47 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. (Mt 5:41)

51:48 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. (Mt 5:42; Lk 6:30)

51:49 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. (Lk 6:31)

51:50 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. (Mt 5:43)

51:51 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you; (Mt 5:44; Lk 6:27)

51:52 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. (Mt 5:44; Lk 6:28)

51:53 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. (Mt 5:45)

51:54 For if ye love them which love you, what thank [or] reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? for sinners also love those that love them. (Mt 5:46; Lk 6:32)

51:55 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. (Lk 6:33)

51:56 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. (Lk 6:34)

51:57 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. (Lk 6:35)

51:58 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. (Lk 6:36)

51:59 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? (Mt 5:47)

51:60 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. (Mt 5:48)

51:61 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. (Mt 6:1)

51:62 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. (Mt 6:2)

51:63 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: (Mt 6:3)

51:64 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. (Mt 6:4)

51:65 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. (Mt 6:5)

51:66 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. (Mt 6:6)

51:67 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. (Mt 6:7)

51:68 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. (Mt 6:8)

51:69 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. (Mt 6:9)

51:70 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. (Mt 6:10)

51:71 Give us this day our daily bread. (Mt 6:11)

51:72 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. (Mt 6:12)

51:73 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. (Mt 6:13)

51:74 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: (Mt 6:14)

51:75 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. (Mt 6:15)

51:76 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. (Mt 6:16)

51:77 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; (Mt 6:17)

51:78 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. (Mt 6:18)

51:79 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: (Mt 6:19)

51:80 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: (Mt 6:20)

51:81 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Mt 6:21)

51:82 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. (Mt 6:22)

51:83 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! (Mt 6:23)

51:84 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (Mt 6:24)

51:85 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? (Mt 6:25)

51:86 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? (Mt 6:26)

51:87 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? (Mt 6:27)

51:88 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: (Mt 6:28)

51:89 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. (Mt 6:29)

51:90 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? (Mt 6:30)

51:91 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (Mt 6:31)

51:92 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. (Mt 6:32)

51:93 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Mt 6:33)

51:94 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Mt 6:34)

51:95 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: (Mt 7:1; Lk 6:37)

51:96 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged. (Mt 7:2)

51:97 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. (Mt 7:2; Lk 6:38)

51:98 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? (Lk 6:39)

51:99 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. (Lk 6:40)

51:100 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? (Mt 7:3; Lk 6:41)

51:101 Or either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote out of thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? (Mt 7:4; Lk 6:42)

51:102 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. (Mt 7:5; Lk 6:42)

51:103 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. (Matthew 7:6). (Mt 7:6)

51:104 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: (Mt 7:7)

51:105 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (Mt 7:8)

51:106 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? (Mt 7:9)

51:107 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? (Mt 7:10)

51:108 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? (Mt 7:11)

51:109 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. (Mt 7:12)

51:110 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: (Mt 7:13)

51:111 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Mt 7:14)

51:112 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Mt 7:15)

51:113 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? (Mt 7:16)

51:114 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. (Mt 7:17)

51:115 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. (Mt 7:18; Lk 6:43)

51:116 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. (Lk 6:44)

51:117 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. (Mt 7:19)

51:118 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (Mt 7:20)

51:119 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. (Lk 6:45)

51:120 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? (Lk 6:46)

51:121 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (Mt 7:21)

51:122 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? (Mt 7:22)

51:123 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Mt 7:23)

51:124 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: (Mt 7:24; Lk 6:47)

51:125 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: (Mt 7:24; Lk 6:48)

51:126 And when the rain descended, and the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it; and when the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. (Mt 7:25; Lk 6:48)

51:127 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand without a foundation: (Mt 7:26; Lk 6:49)

51:128 And the rain descended, and the floods came, which the stream did beat vehemently, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and immediately it fell: and the ruin of that house was great. (Mt 7:27; Lk 6:49)

51:129 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: (Mt 7:28)

51:130 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. (Mt 7:29)

UG 52. Healing the centurion’s servant in Capernaum (Mt 8:1, 5—13; Lk 7:1—10)

52:1 Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, (Lk 7:1)

52:2 He was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. (Mt 8:1)

52:3 And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. (Lk 7:2)

52:4 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant, (Mt 8:5; Lk 7:3)

52:5 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. (Mt 8:6)

52:6 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, (Mt 8:5; Lk 7:1)

52:7 They came to Jesus, [and] besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this: (Mt 8:5; Lk 7:4)

52:8 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue. (Lk 7:5)

52:9 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. (Mt 8:7)

52:10 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof: (Mt 8:8; Lk 7:6)

52:11 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. (Mt 8:8; Lk 7:7)

52:12 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. (Mt 8:9; Lk 7:8)

52:13 When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. (Mt 8:10; Lk 7:9)

52:14 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. (Mt 8:11)

52:15 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Mt 8:12)

52:16 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. (Mt 8:13)

52:17 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick. (Lk 7:10)

UG 53. Resurrection of the widow’s son in Nain (Lk 7:11—17)

53:1 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people. (Lk 7:11)

53:2 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. (Lk 7:12)

53:3 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. (Lk 7:13)

53:4 And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. (Lk 7:14)

53:5 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. (Lk 7:15)

53:6 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people. (Lk 7:16)

53:7 And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about. (Lk 7:17)

UG 54. The message of Jesus Christ about himself and John the Baptist before the disciples of John (Mt 11:2—19; Lk 7:18—35)

54:1 Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, [for] the disciples of John shewed him of all these things, (Mt 11:2; Lk 7:18)

54:2 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, (Mt 11:2; Lk 7:19)

54:3 saying unto him, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? (Mt 11:3; Lk 7:19)

54:4 When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another? (Lk 7:20)

54:5 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight. (Lk 7:21)

54:6 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: (Mt 11:4; Lk 7:22)

54:7 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. (Mt 11:5; Lk 7:22)

54:8 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me. (Mt 11:6; Lk 7:23)

54:9 And when the messengers of John were departed, Jesus began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind? (Mt 11:7; Lk 7:24)

54:10 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings’ courts. (Mt 11:8; Lk 7:25)

54:11 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet. (Mt 11:9; Lk 7:26)

54:12 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. (Mt 11:10; Lk 7:27)

54:13 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. (Mt 11:11; Lk 7:28)
