THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO
3. Attracting the Occupied
2 And He 1saw two boats lying by the lake, and the fishermen had gotten out of them and were washing the nets.
4 And when He ceased speaking, He said to Simon, Put out into the deep and let down your anets for a catch.
6 And when they did this, they enclosed a great number of afish, and their nets began to tear apart.
7 And they signaled to their companions in the other boat to come and assist them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
8 And when Simon Peter saw this, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me, for I am a asinful man, Lord.
9 For amazement had taken possession of him and all who were with him, because of the catch of the fish which they took;
4. Cleansing the Contaminated
13 And stretching out His hand, He touched him, saying, I am willing; be cleansed! And immediately the leprosy left him.
5. Healing the Paralytic
17 And on one of the days He was teaching, and there were Pharisees and ateachers of the law sitting there, who had come out of every bvillage of Galilee and cJudea and Jerusalem. And the dpower of the Lord 1was with Him to heal.
19 And since they could not find by what way they might carry him in because of the crowd, they went up onto the housetop and let him down with the cot through the tiles into the midst, in front of Jesus.
22 But Jesus, aknowing fully their reasonings, answered and said to them, Why are you reasoning in your hearts?
23 Which is easier: to say, Your sins are forgiven you, or to say, Rise and walk?
24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on the earth to aforgive sins -- He said to the one paralyzed, To you I say, Rise and take up your cot and go to your house.
25 And he rose up at once before them and took up that upon which he was lying and went away to his house, aglorifying God.
26 And astonishment took hold of all, and they glorified God and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen extraordinary things today.
6. Calling the Despised
28 And leaving all, he rose up and afollowed Him.
31 And Jesus answered and said to them, Those who are healthy have no need of a physician, but those who are ill;
34 And Jesus said to them, You cannot make the sons of the bridechamber fast while the abridegroom is with them, can you?
35 But the adays will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them; then they will fast in those days.
36 And He also spoke a parable to them: No one tears a patch from a new garment and puts it on an old garment; otherwise, 1he will tear the new garment, and also the patch from the new will not match the old.
37 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise, the new wine will burst the wineskins, and it will be poured out and the wineskins will be ruined;
38 But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins.
39 And no one who has drunk the old desires the new, for he says, The old is better.
