B. From Galilee to Jerusalem
1. Rejected by the Samaritans
53 And they did not receive Him, because His aface was set to go to Jerusalem.
2. Instructing People How to Follow Him
58 And Jesus said to him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of heaven have roosts, but the Son of Man does 1not have a place where He may lay His head.
59 And He said to 1another, Follow Me. But he said, Lord, permit me to go first and bury my father.
3. Appointing Seventy Disciples
to Spread His Ministry
to Spread His Ministry
3 Go; behold, I send you as alambs in the midst of wolves.
5 And into whatever house you enter, first say, aPeace to this house.
8 And into whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat what is aset before you;
10 But into whatever city you enter and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say,
11 Even the adust from your city which clings to our feet, we wipe off against you; yet know this, that the kingdom of God has drawn near.
13 Woe to you, aChorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the bworks of power which took place in you had taken place in cTyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in dsackcloth and ashes.
14 Yet it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the judgment than for you.
17 And the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject to us ain Your name.
18 And He said to them, I was watching Satan 1fall like lightning out of heaven.
21 1In that hour He exulted in the Holy Spirit and asaid, I extol You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the bwise and intelligent and have revealed them to cbabes. Yes, Father, for thus it has been dwell pleasing in Your sight.
23 And turning to the disciples, He said privately, aBlessed are the eyes which see the things that you see.
4. Portraying Himself as the Good Samaritan
with the Highest Morality
with the Highest Morality
26 And He said to him, What is written in the law? How do you read it?
27 And he answered and said, a"You shall love the Lord your God from your whole heart and 1with your whole soul and 1with your whole strength and 1with your whole mind, and byour neighbor as yourself.''
28 And He said to him, You have answered correctly; ado this, and you shall have life.
29 But he, wanting to 1justify himself, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbor?
30 Jesus, taking up the question, said, A 1certain man was going 2down from 3Jerusalem to 3aJericho, and he fell among 4robbers, who having both 5stripped him and 6beaten him, went away, 7leaving him half dead.
31 And by coincidence a certain 1priest was going down on that road; and when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side.
32 And likewise also a 1Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the opposite side.
36 Which of these three, does it seem to you, has 1become a neighbor to him who fell into the hands of the robbers?
37 And he said, 1The one who showed mercy to him. And Jesus said to him, Go, and you do likewise.
5. Received by Martha
40 But Martha was 1abeing drawn about with much serving, and she came up to Him and said, Lord, does it not matter to You that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to do her part with me.
41 But the Lord answered and said to her, Martha, Martha, you are aanxious and troubled about many things;
6. Teaching concerning Prayer
1 And while He was in a certain place praying, when He ceased, a certain one of His disciples said to Him, Lord, teach us to pray, even as John also taught his disciples.
3 Give us each day our daily abread.
5 And He said to them, Who among you will have a friend and will go to him at midnight and say to him, Friend, lend me three loaves,
6 Since a friend of mine has come to me from a journey and I have nothing to set before him;
7 And that one, from inside, will answer and say, Do not trouble me; the door is already shut and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise up and give you anything?
8 I say to you, Even though he will not rise up and give him anything because he is his friend, surely because of his shameless persistence he will rise and give him what he needs.
10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it shall be opened.
11 But what father among you 1whose son shall ask for a fish will instead of a fish hand him a snake?
12 Or if he shall also ask for an egg will hand him a scorpion?
7. Rejected by the Evil Generation
18 And if Satan also is divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? For you say that it is by Beelzebul that I cast out the demons.
19 But if I by Beelzebul acast out the demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges.
23 1He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters.
25 And it comes and finds it swept and decorated.
26 Then it goes and takes along other spirits more evil than itself, seven of them, and they enter and settle down there. And the last state of that man becomes aworse than the first.
27 And as He said these things, a certain woman out of the crowd lifted up her voice and said to Him, aBlessed is the womb that bore You and the breasts at which You nursed.
28 But He said, Blessed rather are those who ahear the word of God and keep it.
30 For even as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so also will the Son of Man be to this generation.
31 The aqueen of the south will rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation and will bcondemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the cwisdom of Solomon, and behold, something dmore than Solomon is here.
8. Warning Not to Remain in Darkness
35 Watch out therefore that the 1light which is in you is not darkness.
36 If therefore your whole body is full of light and does not have any dark part, the whole will be full of light as when the lamp with its rays illuminates you.
9. Rebuking the Pharisees and Lawyers
39 But the Lord said to him, Again, you Pharisees acleanse the outside of the cup and of the platter, but your inside is full of extortion and wickedness.
40 aFoolish ones! Did not He who made the outside make the inside also?
44 Woe to you! For you are like the unseen atombs, and the men who walk over them do not know it.
