15. Teaching with Parables
4 And while a great crowd was coming together and those from city to city were journeying to Him, He spoke by way of a aparable:
5 The 1sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some seed fell beside the way, and it was trampled underfoot, and the birds of heaven devoured it.
6 And other seed fell on the rock, and as it grew, it withered because it had no moisture.
7 And other seed fell in the midst of the athorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it off.
9 And His disciples questioned Him as to what this parable might be.
10 And He said, To you it has been given to know the amysteries of the 1kingdom of God, but to the rest they are in parables, in order that bseeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.
12 And those beside the way are those who heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their heart, so that they would not believe and be asaved.
17 For nothing is ahidden which shall not become manifest, nor concealed which shall not by all means be made known and come into the open.

23 And while they were sailing, He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down upon the lake, and they began to fill with water and were in danger.
25 And He said to them, Where is your faith? And they abecame frightened and marveled, saying to one another, Who then is this, that He orders even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?
18. Casting Out a Legion of Demons
27 And when He went out onto the land, a certain man out of the city, who had demons, met Him, and for a considerable time he had not put on clothes and did not remain in a house but among the tombs.
29 For He had charged the aunclean spirit to come out from the man; for many times it had seized him and he had been bound with chains and shackles and was kept under watch, yet every time he tore the bonds apart and was driven by the demon into the wilderness.
30 And Jesus questioned him, What is your name? And he said, Legion, because many demons had entered into him.
31 And they entreated Him not to order them to depart into the aabyss.
32 Now there was a herd of many ahogs feeding there on the mountain. And they entreated Him to permit them to enter into them, and He gave them permission.
33 And the demons came out from the man and entered into the hogs, and the herd rushed down the steep slope into the alake and was drowned.
34 And when those who were feeding them saw what had happened, they fled and reported it in the city and in the countryside.
35 And the people went out to see what had happened. And they came to Jesus and found the man from whom the demons had come out, asitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and sane, and they became frightened.
36 And those who had seen it reported to them how the demon possessed man had been 1healed.
38 And the man from whom the demons had come out begged to be with Him, but He sent him away, saying,
39 Return to your house, and relate what great things God has done for you. And he departed, proclaiming throughout the whole city what great things Jesus had done for him.

46 But Jesus said, Someone touched Me, for I perceived that apower had gone out from Me.
47 And when the woman saw that she had not escaped notice, she came trembling and fell down before Him and declared before all the people the reason why she had touched Him and how she had been instantly healed.
50 But Jesus, hearing it, answered him, Do not be afraid -- only believe, and she will be healed.
