Marriage Feast at Cana by Hieronymus Bosch(c.1450-1516)

Wedding at Cana

John 2.1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2.2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. 2.3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 2.4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. 2.5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. 2.6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. 2.7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 2.8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. 2.9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 2.10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. 2.11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

2.12 After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.

Sheep without a shepherd

Matthew 9.35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 9.36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. 9.37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; 9.38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest. Mark 6.30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught. 6.31 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. 6.32 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately. 6.33 And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him. 6.34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

Feeding of the five thousand

Matthew 14.14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick. 14.15 And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. 14.16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat. 14.17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. 14.18 He said, Bring them hither to me. 14.19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 14.20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. 14.21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children. Mark 6.35 And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed: 6.36 Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat. 6.37 He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat? 6.38 He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. 6.39 And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass. 6.40 And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties. 6.41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all. 6.42 And they did all eat, and were filled. 6.43 And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes. 6.44 And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men. Luke 9.10 And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they had done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida. Luke 9.11 And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing. Luke 9.12 And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place. Luke 9.13 But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people. Luke 9.14 For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company. Luke 9.15 And they did so, and made them all sit down. Luke 9.16 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. Luke 9.17 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets. John 6.1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. 6.2 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased. 6.3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. 6.4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh. 6.5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? 6.6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do. 6.7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little. 6.8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him, 6.9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? 6.10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 6.11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. 6.12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. 6.13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.

Jesus walks on the water

Matthew 14.22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. 14.23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. 14.24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. 14.25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 14.26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 14.27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 14.28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 14.29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 14.30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 14.31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? 14.32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. 14.33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God. 14.34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret. 14.35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased; 14.36 And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole. Mark 6.45 And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people. 6.46 And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray. 6.47 And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land. 6.48 And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them. 6.49 But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out: 6.50 For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid. 6.51 And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered. 6.52 For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened. 6.53 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore. 6.54 And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him, 6.55 And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was. 6.56 And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole. John 6.14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world. 6.15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone. 6.16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea, 6.17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them. 6.18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew. 6.19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. 6.20 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. 6.21 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.

Unwashed hands

Matthew 15.1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, 15.2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. 15.3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? 15.4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. 15.5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; 15.6 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. 15.7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 15.8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 15.9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 15.10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: 15.11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. 15.12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 15.13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 15.14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. 15.15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable. 15.16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? 15.17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? 15.18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. 15.19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: 15.20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man. Mark 7.1 Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem. 7.2 And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault. 7.3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders. 7.4 And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables. 7.5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands? 7.6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. 7.7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctines the commandments of men. 7.8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. 7.9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. 7.10 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death: 7.11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free. 7.12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; 7.13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye. Mark 7.14 And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand: 7.15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. 7.16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. 7.17 And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable. 7.18 And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him; 7.19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats? 7.20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 7.21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 7.22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 7.23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. Luke 11.37 And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat. 11.38 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner. 11.39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness. 11.40 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also? 11.41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you. 11.42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 11.43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets. 11.44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them. 11.45 Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also. 11.46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. 11.47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. 11.48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres. 11.49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: 11.50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; 11.51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. 11.52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. 11.53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things: 11.54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

Curing the non-Jewish girl

Matthew 15.21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. 15.22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. 15.23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. 15.24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 15.25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. 15.26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. 15.27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. 15.28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. Mark 7.24 And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could not be hid. 7.25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet: 7.26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. 7.27 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. 7.28 And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs. 7.29 And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter. 7.30 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.

Curing the deaf

Matthew 15.29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there. 15.30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them: 15.31 Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel. Mark 7.31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. 7.32 And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. 7.33 And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; 7.34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. 7.35 And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. 7.36 And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it; 7.37 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

Feeding of the seven thousand

Matthew 15.32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way. 15.33 And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude? 15.34 And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes. 15.35 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. 15.36 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 15.37 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full. 15.38 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.

15.39 And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala, 16.1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. 16.2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. 16.3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? 16.4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

16.5 And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. 16.6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. 16.7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread. 16.8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread? 16.9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? 16.10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? 16.11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? 16.12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
Mark 8.1 In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them, 8.2 I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat: 8.3 And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far. 8.4 And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness? 8.5 And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven. 8.6 And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people. 8.7 And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them. 8.8 So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets. 8.9 And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.

8.10 And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha. 8.11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. 8.12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. 8.13 And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.

8.14 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf. 8.15 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod. 8.16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread. 8.17 And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened? 8.18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? 8.19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve. 8.20 And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven. 8.21 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?

Curing of a blind man

Mark 8.22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him. 8.23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought. 8.24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. 8.25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. 8.26 And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.

1570-75 Christ Healing the Blind by El Greco (1541-1614)

John 9.1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. 9.2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? 9.3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. 9.4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. 9.5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 9.6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 9.7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing. 9.8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? 9.9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he. 9.10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened? 9.11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight. 9.12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not. 9.13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind. 9.14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. 9.15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see. 9.16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. 9.17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet. 9.18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight. 9.19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see? 9.20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: 9.21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself. 9.22 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. 9.23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him. 9.24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. 9.25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. 9.26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? 9.27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples? 9.28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples. 9.29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is. 9.30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. 9.31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. 9.32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. 9.33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. 9.34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out. 9.35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? 9.36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? 9.37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. 9.38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. 9.39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. 9.40 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? 9.41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

Who is Jesus?

Matthew 16.13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 16.14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 16.15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16.16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 16.17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 16.18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 16.19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 16.20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ. 16.21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. 16.22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. 16.23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. 16.24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 16.25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 16.26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 16.27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. 16.28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. Mark 8.27 And Jesus went out, and his disciples, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and by the way he asked his disciples, saying unto them, Whom do men say that I am? 8.28 And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets. 8.29 And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ. 8.30 And he charged them that they should tell no man of him. 8.31 And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 8.32 And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him. 8.33 But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men. 8.34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 8.35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. 8.36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 8.37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 8.38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. Luke 9.18 And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am? 9.19 They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again. 9.20 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God. 9.21 And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing; 9.22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day. 9.23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. 9.24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 9.25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? 9.26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels. 9.27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God. John 6.67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 6.68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 6.69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God. 6.70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? 6.71 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.

John 21.20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? 21.21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? 21.22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me. 21.23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? 21.24 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.

The transfiguration

Matthew 17.1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 17.2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 17.3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. 17.4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 17.5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. 17.6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. 17.7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. 17.8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. 17.9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead. 17.10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? 17.11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. 17.12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. 17.13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist. Mark 9.1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power. 9.2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. 9.3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. 9.4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. 9.5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 9.6 For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid. 9.7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 9.8 And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves. 9.9 And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead. 9.10 And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean. 9.11 And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? 9.12 And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought. 9.13 But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him. Luke 9.28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. 9.29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. 9.30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias: 9.31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem. 9.32 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him. 9.33 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said. 9.34 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud. 9.35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 9.36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

Curing of the son with fits

Matthew 17.14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, 17.15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. 17.16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. 17.17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. 17.18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 17.19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 17.20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. 17.21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. Mark 9.14 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them. 9.15 And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him. 9.16 And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them? 9.17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; 9.18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not. 9.19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me. 9.20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. 9.21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child. 9.22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us. 9.23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. 9.24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. 9.25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. 9.26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead. 9.27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose. 9.28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? 9.29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting. Luke 9.37 And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met him. 9.38 And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child. 9.39 And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him. 9.40 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not. 9.41 And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither. 9.42 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.

Tribute from the mouth of a fish

Matthew 17.24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? 17.25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? 17.26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. 17.27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

Raising from the dead

Luke

Luke 7.11 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. 7.12 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. 7.13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. 7.14 And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. 7.15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. 7.16 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.

1608-09 The Raising of Lazarus by Caravaggio (1571-1610) John 11.1 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. 11.2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) 11.3 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. 11.4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. 11.5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. 11.6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. 11.7 Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. 11.8 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again? 11.9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. 11.10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him. 11.11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. 11.12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. 11.13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. 11.14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. 11.15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him. 11.16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him. 11.17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already. 11.18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off: 11.19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother. 11.20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house. 11.21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 11.22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. 11.23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. 11.24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 11.25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 11.26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 11.27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. 11.28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee. 11.29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him. 11.30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him. 11.31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there. 11.32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 11.33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, 11.34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see. 11.35 Jesus wept. 11.36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him! 11.37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died? 11.38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. 11.39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. 11.40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? 11.41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. 11.42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. 11.43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. 11.44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. 11.45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. 11.46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done. 11.47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles. 11.48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. 11.49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, 11.50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. 11.51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; 11.52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. 11.53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death. 11.54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.
