And he called his twelve disciples to him, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure dis eases: and he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.




And many signs and wonders were done among the people by the hands of the apostles; (and they were all with one con sent in Solomon's porch. And no one of the rest durst join himself to them; but the people magnified them. And believers in the Lord were more and more added to them, multitudes both of men and women;) read more.
so that they brought the sick out along the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that even the shadow of Peter, as he passed along, might fall on some of them. And many people of the cities round about came to Jerusalem, bringing the sick, and those who were troubled by evil spirits, all of whom were cured.








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.

And these signs shall attend those who believe. In my name they shall cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and, if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

While Peter was speaking these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all that heard the word. And the believers that were of the circumcision, as many as had come with Peter, were astonished, because on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Spirit: for they heard them speaking with tongues, and magnifying God. Then Peter answered:









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.

For you know what commandments we gave you by our Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, your sanctification, that you keep yourselves from lewdness; That each one of you know how to keep his vessel in sanctification and in honor, read more.
not in passionate desire, as the Gentiles do, who know not God; That no one take advantage of or injure his brother in this matter; because the Lord takes vengeance for all such things, as we also told you before, and fully testified: for God has not called us for uncleanness, but for holiness. Therefore, he that despises, despises not man, but God, who has given us his Holy Spirit.

And the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into the mountain, where Jesus had appointed to meet them. And when they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying: All authority in heaven and on earth is given to me. read more.
Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations, immersing them (the disciples) into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; teaching them to observe all things whatever I have commanded you: and lo; I am with you all the days, even to the end of the age.

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.
And he said to them: Wherever you enter a house, there make your home till you depart from that place.

And they went out and preached that men should repent; and they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and cured 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. He that believes and is immersed, shall be saved; he that believes not, shall be condemned. read more.
And these signs shall attend those who believe. In my name they shall cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and, if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. The Lord, therefore, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven: and he sat down at the right hand of God. And they went forth and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following.

And whatever house you enter, there remain, and thence depart. And whoever will not receive you, when you go out of that city, shake off even the dust from your feet, for a testimony against them.

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.

I mean this: that each one of you says, I am of Paul, and I of Apollos, and I of Cephas, and I of Christ. Is the Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? or were you immersed into the name of Paul? I thank God that I immersed none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; read more.

But Jesus said to them: A prophet is not without honor, unless in his own country, and among his own relatives, and in his own house.

And Jesus went through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every infirmity. And when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them, because they were troubled and scattered as sheep that had no shepherd.

Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.

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.






I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine-dresser. Every branch in me that bears no fruit, he takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Now are you pure, through the word which I have spoken to you. read more.
Abide in me, and I will abide in you. As the branch can not bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He that abides in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; for apart from me you can do nothing. If any one abide not in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and withers; and such are gathered, and thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done for you. In this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; and in this you will be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love, even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken to you, that my joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is my commandment: That you love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that one should lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you. I no longer call you servants, because the servant knows not what his master does. But I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard from my Father, I have made known to you. You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and appointed you, that you may go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit may remain; that whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he may give you. These things I command you, that you may love one another. If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word which I spoke to you, The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you on my account, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. He that hates me, hates my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no other man has done, they would have had no sin; but now they have both seen, and hated both me and my Father. But this is so, that the word may be fulfilled which is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.



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.
And he said to them: Wherever you enter a house, there make your home till you depart from that place. 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 they went out and preached that men should repent; and they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and cured 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. He that believes and is immersed, shall be saved; he that believes not, shall be condemned. read more.
And these signs shall attend those who believe. In my name they shall cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and, if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. The Lord, therefore, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven: and he sat down at the right hand of God. And they went forth and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following.

And he called his twelve disciples to him, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure dis eases: and he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. And he said to them: Take nothing for your journey, neither staff, nor bag, nor bread, nor money; nor have two coats each. read more.
And whatever house you enter, there remain, and thence depart. And whoever will not receive you, when you go out of that city, shake off even the dust from your feet, for a testimony against them. And they departed, and went through every village, preaching the gospel, and per forming cures everywhere.

And there was a certain man in Lystra, without strength in his feet, who sat, for he was a cripple from his mother's womb, and had never walked. This man heard Paul speak, who, looking earnestly on him, and seeing that he had faith to be saved, said, with a loud voice: Stand erect upon your feet. And he leaped and walked.

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.

Now Peter and John were going up. together into the temple at the hour of prayer, which was the ninth hour. And a certain man, lame from his mother's womb, was carried along, whom they laid daily at that gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, that he might ask charity of those who were going into the temple. This man, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked charity. read more.
But Peter, fixing his eyes on him with John, said: Look on us. And he gave heed to them, expecting to receive something from them. But Peter said: Silver and gold I have none: but what I have, this I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, arise and walk. And he took him by his right hand and raised him up: and immediately his feet and ankles received strength. And leaping up, he stood and walked, and went with them into the temple, walking and leaping and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God; and they recognized him, that it was he that had sat for charity at the Beautiful gate of the temple. And they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him. And while he was holding to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch called Solomon s, greatly astonished. But when Peter saw it, he answered the people: Men of Israel, why are you astonished at this? or, why do you look so earnestly on us, as if by our own power or godliness we had caused this man to walk?

so that they brought the sick out along the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that even the shadow of Peter, as he passed along, might fall on some of them. And many people of the cities round about came to Jerusalem, bringing the sick, and those who were troubled by evil spirits, all of whom were cured.


But he that received seed on the good ground, is he that hears the word and understands it; who also produces fruit, and yields, one a hundred; another, sixty; another, thirty.

And these are they that received seed on the good ground; who hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, one thirty, and one sixty, and one a hundred.


Then Pilate said to him: You are a king, then? Jesus answered; You say that I am a king. For this purpose was I born, and for this purpose I came into the world, that I might testify to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, hears my voice.

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.

Verily, verily I say to you, he that goes not through the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief, and a robber. But he that enters through the door, is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the door-keeper opens; and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out. read more.
And when he puts his own sheep out, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him; for they know his voice. And a stranger they will not follow, but will flee from him; for they know not the voice of strangers.

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.

And Jesus went through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every infirmity.

Then he said to his disciples: The harvest is abundant, but the laborers are few. read more.
Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
