And, seeing it, His disciples, James and John, said, "Lord, dost Thou wish that we bid fire come down from heaven, and consume them?" But, turning, He rebuked them. And they went on to another village.


For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.'

Then came to Him the mother of the sons of Zebedee with her sons, worshiping and asking something of Him. And He said to her, "What do you wish?" She says to Him, "Command, that these my two sons may sit, one on Thy right hand, and one on Thy left, in Thy Kingdom." But Jesus, answering, said, "Ye know not what ye are asking. Are ye able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?" They say to Him, "We are able." read more.
He saith to them, "My cup, indeed, ye shall drink; but to sit on My right hand, and on My left, is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by My Father." And the ten, hearing it, were much displeased with the two brothers.

And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come to Him, saying to Him, "Teacher, we wish that Thou wouldest do for us whatsoever we ask." And He said to them, "What do you wish that I should do for you?" And they said to Him, "Grant to us that we may sit, one on Thy right hand, and one on Thy left, in Thy Kingdom." read more.
But Jesus said to them, "Ye know not what ye are asking. Are ye able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be immersed with the immersion that I am immersed with?" And they said to Him, "We are able." And Jesus said to them, "The cup that I drink ye shall drink; and the immersion with which I am immersed shall ye be immersed; but to sit on My right hand, or on My left, is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared." And the ten, hearing it, began to be much displeased with James and John.

For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.'

for he will be great before the Lord; and he will drink no wine nor strong drink; and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb.

For John, the Immerser, has come, neither eating bread, nor drinking wine; and ye say, 'He has a demon.'


And, as these were going, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John, "What went ye out into the wilderness to behold? a reed shaken by the wind? But what went ye out to see? a man in soft raiment; Behold, those wearing soft raiment are in kings' houses. But why did ye go out? to see a prophet? Yea, I say to you, and much more than a prophet. read more.
This is he of whom it has been written, 'Behold, I send My messenger before Thy face, who shall prepare Thy way before Thee.' "Verily I say to you, there has not arisen, among those born of women, a greater than John the Immerser; yet he that is least in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he. And from the time of John the Immerser until now, the Kingdom of Heaven is taken by storm, and violent men seize upon it; for all the prophets and the law prophesied until John; and, if ye are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who is about to come. He that has ears let him hear. "But to what shall I liken this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces, who, calling to the others, say, 'We piped to you, and ye did not dance; we wailed, and ye did not lament.' For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.' The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Behold, a man gluttonous and a wine-drinker, a friend of tax-collectors and sinners.' And wisdom was justified by her works."

And, the messengers of John having gone away, He began to say to the multitudes concerning John, "What went ye forth into the wilderness to behold? a reed shaken by the wind? But what went ye forth to see? a man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, those clothed in splendid apparel, and living in luxury, are in kingly courts! But what went ye forth to see? a prophet? Yea, I say to you, and much more than a prophet. read more.
This is he concerning whom it has been written, 'Behold, I send forth My messenger before Thy face, who will prepare Thy way before Thee.' I say to you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John; but the least in the Kingdom of God is greater than he." And all the people, having heard, and the tax-collectors, justified God, having been immersed with the immersion of John. But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected the counsel of God as to themselves, not having been immersed by him. "To what, then, shall I liken the men of this generation? And to what are they like? They are like children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, who say, 'We piped to you, and ye did not dance; we wailed, and ye did not weep.' For John, the Immerser, has come, neither eating bread, nor drinking wine; and ye say, 'He has a demon.'


And John, having heard, in the prison, of the works of the Christ, sending by his disciples, said to Him, "Art Thou the Coming One, or are we to look for another?" And Jesus, answering, said to them, "Having gone, report to John what ye are hearing and seeing: read more.
the blind receive sight, and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised, and the poor have the Gospel proclaimed to them. And happy is he, whosoever shall find no occasion of stumbling in Me."

And the disciples of John reported to him concerning all these things. And, calling to him two of his disciples, John sent them to the Lord, saying, "Art Thou the Coming One, or are we to expect another?" And, coming near to Him, the men said, "John, the Immerser, sent us to Thee, saying, 'Art Thou the Coming One, or are we to expect another?'" read more.
In that hour He cured many of diseases, and plagues, and evil spirits; and to many blind He bestowed sight. And, answering, He said to them, "Going your way, announce to John what ye saw and heard: the blind receive sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have the Gospel proclaimed to them. And happy is he, whosoever shall find no cause of stumbling in Me."


There was at the table reclining in Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. Simon Peter, therefore, beckons to this one, and says to him, "Tell us who it is about whom He is speaking." He, leaning back as he was on the breast of Jesus, says to Him, "Lord, who is it?" read more.
Jesus, therefore, answereth, "He it is for whom I shall dip the morsel, and give it to him." Having, therefore, dipped the morsel, He taketh and giveth it to Judas, son of Simon Iscariot.

Peter, turning about, sees the disciple whom Jesus loved following; who also at the Supper leaned back on Jesus' breast, and said, "Lord, who is he that betrays Thee?"


and likewise also James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, "Fear not; henceforth you will catch men."

After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and He manifested Himself in this manner. There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathaniel of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples. Simon Peter says to them, "I am going away to fish." They say to him, We also are coming with you." They went forth, and entered into a boat; and in that night they caught nothing. read more.
But, morning now coming on, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus, therefore, saith to them, "Little children, have ye anything to eat?" They answered Him, "No." And He said to there, "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and ye shall find." They cast it, therefore; and no longer were they able to draw it, for the multitude of the fishes. That disciple, therefore, whom Jesus loved, says to Peter, "It is the Lord!" Simon Peter, therefore, having heard that it was the Lord, girded his outer garment (for he was naked), and cast himself into the sea.

And you will have joy and gladness; and many will rejoice at his birth; for he will be great before the Lord; and he will drink no wine nor strong drink; and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb. And many of the sons of Israel will he turn to the Lord their God. And he will go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the disobedient to walk in the wisdom of the righteous, to make ready for the Lord a people prepared. And Zacharias said to the angel, "By what shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife is far advanced in her days." And the angel, answering, said to him, "I am Gabriel, who have been standing near before God, and I was sent to speak to you, and to proclaim these glad tidings to you. And, behold, you shall be silent, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall come to pass; because you did not believe my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season."

Now the time was completed for Elizabeth, that she should give birth, and she brought forth a son.

And his mother, answering, said; "No; but he shall be called John." And they said to her, "There is no one of your kindred who is called by this name." And they were making signs to his father, what he wished him to be called. And, asking for a writing tablet, he wrote, saying, "John is his name." And they all marveled. And his mouth was instantly opened, and his tongue loosed, and he was speaking, blessing God. And fear came upon all those dwelling around them. And in all the hill country of Judea all these sayings were being much talked of;


And Simon Peter and another disciple were following Jesus. And that disciple was known to the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the court of the high priest; But Peter was standing at the door without. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spake to her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.


Jesus, therefore, seeing His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, saith to His mother, "Woman, behold your Son!" Then saith He to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home.


Now the apostles in Jerusalem, hearing that Samaria had received the word of God, sent to them Peter and John; who, indeed, having come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit; for as yet He had fallen upon no one of them, but they had only been immersed in the name of the Lord Jesus. read more.

Now Peter and John were going up into the temple at the hour of prayer??he ninth hour. And a certain man, lame from his mother's womb, was being carried along, whom they were wont to lay daily at the gate of the temple??hich was called "Beautiful"??o ask alms of those entering the temple; who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, was asking to receive an alms. read more.
And Peter, fixing his eyes upon him, with John, said, "Look on us." And he was giving heed to them, expecting to receive something from them. But Peter said, "Silver and gold have I none; but what I have, this I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ, the Nazarene, walk." And, seizing him by the right hand, he raised him up; and instantly his feet and ankles were strengthened; and, leaping forth, he stood, and was walking about; and he entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking about, and praising God; and they were recognizing him, that this was he who was wont to sit for alms, at the Beautiful gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened to him.

And it came to pass, the next day, that their rulers and elders and scribes were gathered together in Jerusalem, and Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest. And, having set them in the midst, they were inquiring, "In what power or in what name, did ye do this?" Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, "Rulers of the people and elders, if we are this day examined in regard to a good deed done to an impotent man, by what means this person has been made whole; be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Nazarene, Whom ye crucified, Whom God raised from the dead, in Him does this man stand here before you well! This is the Stone That was set at naught by you, the builders, Which was made into a head of a corner. And in no one else is there salvation; for neither is there any other name under Heaven, that has been given among men, in Which we must be saved." Now, beholding the boldness of Peter and John, and perceiving that they were unlettered and ignorant men, they were wondering; they also were recognizing them, that they had been with Jesus; and, seeing the man who had been healed, standing with them, they had nothing to say against it. But, having ordered them to go aside out of the Sanhedrin, they were conferring one with another, saying, "What shall we do to these men? for, indeed, that a notable sign has been done through them is manifest to all those dwelling in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it; but, that it spread no further among the people, let us threaten them, that they speak no more to any man in This Name." And, having called them they charged them not to speak at all, nor teach, in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John, answering, said to them, "Whether it is right in the sight of God to hearken to you, rather than to God, judge ye;
