These twelve Jesus sent forth after he had charged them, saying: Go not into the road that leads to the Gentiles, and enter not a city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as you go, preach, saying: The kingdom of heaven is at hand. read more.
Cure the sick, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. Provide for yourselves neither gold, nor silver, nor brass, to put into your purses, nor bag for your journey, nor two coats, nor sandals, nor staffs: for the laborer is worthy of his support. Whatever city or village you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and there make your home till you go away. When you go into a house, salute it: and if the house be worthy, your peace shall come upon it; but if it be not worthy, your peace shall return to you. And whoever will not receive you, nor hear your words, when you go out of that house or that city, shake off the dust from your feet. Verily I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah, in the day of judgment, than for that city. Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be, therefore, wise as serpents, and guileless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you to the councils, and scourge you in their synagogues; and you will be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, be not anxious how or what you shall speak; for that which you shall speak shall be given you in that hour: for it is not you that speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father that speaks in you. Brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father the child; and children will rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And you will be hated by all men on my account: but he that endures to the end shall be saved. But when they persecute you in this city, flee into another: for verily I say to you, You will not have made the circuit of the cities of Israel before the Son of man shall come. The disciple is not above his teacher, nor the servant above his master. It is enough for the disciple, that he be as his teacher; and for the servant, that he be as his master. If they call the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more those of his household? Fear them not, therefore; for there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed, nor hidden that shall not be made known. "What I tell you in darkness, speak in the light: and what you hear in the ear, preach on the house-tops. And fear not them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. But rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a far thing? and yet not one of them shall fall upon the ground with out your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore: you are of more value than many sparrows. "Whoever, therefore, will confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven. But whoever will deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father who is in heaven. Think not that I have come to send peace on the earth. I have not come to send peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man at variance with his father, and the daughter with her mother, and the daughter-in-law with her mother-in-law: and a man's enemies shall be those of his own household. He that loves father or mother more than me, is not worthy of me: and he that loves son or daughter more than me, is not worthy of me: and whoever does not take his cross and fol low after me, is not worthy of me. He that finds his life shall lose it; and he that loses his life for my sake, shall find it. He that receives you, receives me: and he that receives me, receives him that sent me. He that receives a prophet be cause he is a prophet, shall receive a prophet's reward: and he that receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man, shall receive a righteous man's reward. And whoever will give one of these little ones only a cup of cold water to drink, because he is a disciple, verily I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.

And whoever will not receive you, nor hear you, when you go out from that place, shake off the dust under your feet, for a testimony against them. Verily I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom or Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.

And after these things, the Lord appointed seventy others, also, and sent them, two and two, before his face, into every city and place to which he himself was about to go. He said, therefore, to them: The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; pray, therefore, the Lord of the harvest that he send out laborers into his harvest. Go; behold, I send you as lambs in the midst of wolves. read more.
Carry no purse, nor bag, nor sandals; and salute no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if a son of peace be there, your peace shall rest on him; but, if not, it shall return upon you. And in that house remain, eating and drinking what they have to give; for the laborer is worthy of his hire; go not from house to house. And whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat what is set before you; and heal those in it who are sick, and say to them: The kingdom of God has come near to you. But whatever city you enter, and they receive you not, go out into the streets of it, and say: Even the dust of your city, which cleaves to us, we do wipe off against you; yet know this, that the kingdom of God has come near to you. I say to you, It shall be more tolerable, in that day, for Sodom, than for that city. Alas for thee, Chorazin! alas for thee, Bethsaida! for, if the mighty works which have been done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But for Tyre and Sidon it shall be more tolerable in the judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, who hast been exalted to heaven, shalt be brought down to hades. He that hears you, hears me; and he that rejects you, rejects me; and he that rejects me, rejects him that sent me.

This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, in accordance with the preceding prophecies concerning you, that by them you may war the good warfare, holding faith and a good conscience, which some having thrust from them, as it respects faith have made shipwreck; of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have delivered to Satan, that they may learn not to revile.

Do not rebuke an elderly man, but entreat him as a father; the younger men, as brothers: the elder women, as mothers; the younger women, as sisters, with all purity. Honor widows that are widows indeed. read more.
But if any widow has children or grand-children, let them learn first to be dutiful to their own family, and to requite their parents; for that is good and acceptable in the sight of God. But she that is a widow indeed, and left alone, trusts in God, and continues in supplications and prayers night and day. But she that lives voluptuously, is dead while she lives. These things also give in charge, that they may be blameless. And if any one provides not for his own, and especially for those of his own house hold, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever. Let a widow be put on the list, if she is not under sixty years, having been the wife of one man, having a good reputation for good works; if she has borne children, if she has entertained strangers, if she has washed the saints feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed every good work. But the younger widows reject: for when they become wanton against the Christ, they desire to marry, incurring condemnation, because they have set aside their former obligation. At the same time, also, they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also, and busybodies, speaking things which are not proper. I will, therefore, that the younger widows marry, bear children, man age the house, and thus give no occasion to the adversaries to speak reproachfully. For some have already turned aside after Satan. If any believing man or woman has widows, let him or her relieve them, and let not the church be burdened, that it may relieve those who are widows indeed. Let the elders who rule well, be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in word and teaching. For the scripture says: You shall not muzzle the ox that treads out the grain; and, The laborer is worthy of his hire. Receive not an accusation against an old man, unless before two or three witnesses. Those who sin rebuke before all, that the rest also may fear. I charge you before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that you observe these things without prejudice, and that you do nothing by partiality. Lay hands hastily on no man, nor be partaker of other men's sins: keep yourself pure.

Wherefore I exhort you to kindle up the gift of God that is in you by the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not, therefore, ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me, his prisoner: but jointly suffer evil in the gospel according to the power of God, read more.
who has saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus be fore the times of the ages, but is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has deprived death of its power, and brought life and incorruptibility to light through the gospel; to which I have been appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles; for which cause I also suffer these things; yet I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have intrusted to him till that day. Hold fast the form of sound words which you have heard from me, in faithfulness and in love which is in Christ Jesus.

I charge you, therefore, before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom, preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound teaching, but according to their own desires they will pro cure for themselves an abundance of teachers to gratify their itching ears: read more.
and they will turn away their ears from the truth, and be turned to fables. But do you be watchful in all things, endure evil, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.? For I am now ready to be poured out, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me at that day; and not to me only, but to all those who love his appearing.

And he said to them: These are the words that I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled that are written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then he opened their mind, that they might understand the scriptures, and he said to them: Thus it is written, and thus was it necessary that the Christ should suffer, and rise again from the dead the third day, read more.
and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.


These twelve Jesus sent forth after he had charged them, saying: Go not into the road that leads to the Gentiles, and enter not a city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as you go, preach, saying: The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

And he called to him the twelve, and began to send them out, two and two, and gave them authority over unclean spirits. And he commanded them to take nothing for their journey, but a staff only; no bag, no bread, no money in their purses; but to be shod with sandals, and not to put on two coats. read more.

Now when Jesus had risen early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven demons. And she went and told it to those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept. And though they heard that he was alive, and had been seen by her, they did not believe. read more.
After this he appeared in another form to two of them, as they walked and went into the country. And they went and told it to the rest. But they did not believe them. Afterward he appeared to the eleven as they reclined at table; and he reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen him after he had risen. And he said to them: Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Jesus said: Let the dead bury their own dead; but do you go and publish abroad the kingdom of God.
