4. Being Despised by Men
1 And He went out from there and acame into His own country, and His disciples followed Him.
2 And when the Sabbath had come, He began to 1teach in the asynagogue; and many hearing were bastounded, saying, Where did this man get these things? And what is this wisdom given to this man, and how is it that such works of power take place through His hands?

10 And He said to them, Wherever you enter into a house, there remain until you 1depart from that place.
6. The Martyrdom of the Forerunner
16 But Herod, hearing of it, said, He whom I abeheaded, John, this one was raised!
18 For John had been saying to Herod, It is not lawful for you to have the wife of your abrother.
19 Thus, Herodias had a grudge against him and wanted to kill him and could not,
22 And when the daughter of Herodias herself entered and danced, she pleased Herod and those reclining at table with him. The king said to the girl, Ask of me whatever you want, and I will give it to you.
23 And he swore to her earnestly, Whatever you ask of me, I will give to you, up to ahalf of my kingdom.
24 And she went out and said to her mother, What should I ask for? And she said, The head of John the baptizer.
25 And coming in aimmediately with haste to the king, she asked, saying, I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter.
26 And the king was very grieved, yet because of the oaths and those reclining at table, he did not want to refuse her.
28 And brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl, and the girl gave it to her mother.
29 And when his adisciples heard about it, they came and took his corpse and put it in a tomb.
7. Feeding the Five Thousand
33 And many saw them going away and arecognized them, and they ran together there on foot from all the cities and got there before them.
35 And when the hour had already become late, His disciples came to Him and said, This place is deserted, and the hour is already late;
36 aSend them away so that they may go into the surrounding fields and villages and buy for themselves something to eat.
38 And He said to them, aHow many loaves do you have? Go and see. And when they found out, they said, Five, and two fish.
39 And He ordered them to have all recline 1by companies on the green grass.
40 And they sat down 1in groups, by hundreds and by fifties.
42 And they all ate and were satisfied.
43 And they took up 1twelve full handbaskets of the broken pieces of bread and of the fish.
44 And those who had eaten the loaves were five thousand men.
8. Walking on the Sea
47 And when evening fell, the aboat was in the midst of the sea and He was alone on the land.
48 And seeing them distressed as they rowed, for the wind was contrary to them, He came toward them about the fourth watch of the night, 1walking on the sea, and He intended to pass by them.
49 But when they saw Him walking on the sea, they thought that it was a ghost, and they cried out,
52 For they did not aunderstand concerning the loaves, but rather their heart was hardened.
9. Healing Everywhere
55 And they ran about that whole region and began to carry around on amats those who were ill to any place where they heard that He was.
56 And wherever He entered into avillages or into cities or into the countryside, they laid those who were sick in the bmarketplaces and begged Him that they might touch if even the 1fringe of His garment; and as many as ctouched Him were 2healed.
