A Leper Healed

    8[1-4] When Yeshua had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed along. And then, a person with leprosy came and begged the Christ, saying, “Christ, if You want to, You can heal me.” And Yeshua reached out, and touched them, saying, “I want to; be healed.” And suddenly the leprosy was healed. And Yeshua said, “See that you tell no one; but go and show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses said to, to show them what you say is true.”

The Faith of a Soldier

    [5-13] And when Yeshua went to Capernaum, a soldier came pleading, asking, “Christ, my worker lies paralyzed at home, and in great pain.” And Yeshua said, “I’ll come and heal your worker.” So the soldier answered, “Christ, I’m not worthy for you to come under my roof: just say the word, and I know my worker will be healed. I too am someone with power, having guards under me: and I say to one, Go, and the soldier goes; and to another, Come, and that soldier comes; and to my worker, Do this, and the worker does it.” When Yeshua heard this, the Christ was amazed, saying to those who followed, “The truth is, I haven’t found a faith so great, no, not in all of Israel. And I tell you, that many will come from the east and west, and will sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, in heaven. But the children of the satanic realm will be put out into utter darkness where they’ll be crying and clenching their teeth.” And Yeshua said to the soldier, “Go now; and it’ll happen just like you believed it would.” And the Centurion’s worker was healed at that very time.

Peter’s Mother-in-Law healed

    [14-22] And when Yeshua came into Peter’s house, the Christ saw Peter’s wife’s mother sick in bed with a fever. And Yeshua touched her hand and the fever left her; and she got up, and took care of them all. And when the evening came, people brought many that were overcome by evil spirits, and the Christ freed them from them with a word, and healed all that were sick. So what was spoken by Isaiah the great preacher, saying, “The Christ took on our weaknesses, and healed our sicknesses,” happened in this way.

    Now when Yeshua saw great crowds surrounding them, the Christ told the faithful followers to go by boat to the other side. And a certain religious leader came, saying to Yeshua, “Christ, I’ll follow you wherever you go.” And Yeshua said, “The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but I have nowhere to call home.” And another follower said to Yeshua, “Christ, let me wait until my parents die so I can bury them.” But Yeshua said, “You follow Me; and let those who are spiritually dead bury their dead.”

The Christ Calms the Storm

    [23-27] And when the Christ went in a ship, the most faithful followers came along. And a great storm came up in the sea, so bad that the ship was covered with the waves. But the Christ was sleeping, so the followers came, and awoke Yeshua, saying, “Christ, save us or we’ll all be destroyed.” So the Christ answered, “Why are you so afraid, don’t you’ve any faith?” Then the Christ got up, and told the winds and the sea to “Be still”; and there was a great calm. But the others were amazed, saying, “What kind of person is this that even the wind and the sea obeys?”

The Gergesenes

    [28-34] And when they came to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, two people overcome by evil spirits came out of the tombs, who were so fierce that no one could pass by that way. And they hollered out, saying, “What do we have to do with you, Yeshua, Child of God? Have you come here punish us before our time?” And there was a herd of many pigs feeding a good way off from them. So the evil spirits begged Yeshua, saying, “If you put us out, let us go into the herd of pigs.” And the Christ said, “Go.” And when they had come out, they went into the herd of pigs, and the whole herd ran madly down a steep cliff into the sea, and drowned in the waters. And those who kept them ran off, and went into the city, and told everybody everything that had happened to the ones who had been overcome by the evil spirits. Then the whole city came out, and when they saw the Christ, they begged Yeshua to leave their coasts.

A Paralytic Healed

   9[1-8] And then Yeshua went back to the ship, and crossed over the sea, and came back. And they brought someone paralyzed, lying on a bed to the Christ. So, Yeshua, seeing their faith said to the paralyzed one; “Child, be happy; your sins are forgiven you.” And some of the religious leaders said, “This person shows disrespect to God.” And Yeshua knowing what they were thinking said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts? Is it easier to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you’; or to say, ‘Get up, and walk?’ But so that you can know that I have the power on earth to forgive sins,” (then the Christ said to the paralyzed one,) “Get up, pick up your bed, and go home.” And the paralyzed one got up, and went home. But when the crowds saw it, they were amazed, and praised God, who had given such power to Yeshua.

Matthew Called

    [9] And as the Christ left from there, Yeshua said to someone, named Matthew, who was sitting where the taxes were collected, “Follow Me.” And Matthew got up, and followed Yeshua.

Eating With Sinners

    [10-13] And then, as Yeshua was eating a meal in the house, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with the Christ and the followers. And when the religious leaders saw it, they said to the followers, “Why does your Christ eat with tax collectors and sinners?” But on hearing that, Yeshua answered, “Those who are well don’t need a doctor, but only those who are sick. But you go and learn what this means, ‘I want mercy, and not a sacrifice’; because I haven’t come to call those who do good things, but sinners to change their ways.”

On Fasting

    [14-17] Then the followers of John came, saying, “Why do we and the religious leaders go without food for religious reasons often, but your followers don’t go without food at all?” And Yeshua answered, “Can those of the bridal party cry, as long as the bridal party is with them? but the time will come, when the bridal party will be taken from them, and then they’ll go without food and cry.  No one puts a new piece of cloth on an old piece of clothing, for what was put in to patch it up will shrink and pull on the tear, and make it worse. Neither does anyone put new wine into old bottles, or else the bottles will break, and the wine will spill out, and the bottles will be broken. But they put new wine into new bottles, and both are kept safely.  

Woman Healed of Bleeding Disorder And A Young Girl Brought Back to Life Again

    [18-26] While the Christ spoke this to them, there came a certain ruler, and bowed before Yeshua, saying, “My daughter is just about dead now: but come and lay your hand on her, and she will live again.” And Yeshua got up, and followed along, and so did the followers. And a woman, who suffered with a flow of blood for twelve years, came up behind Yeshua, and touched the hem of the Christ’s clothing, saying to herself, “If I can only touch the clothing of the Christ, I’ll get well.” But Yeshua turned around, and when the Christ saw her, said, “Daughter, be in good spirits now; your faith has made you well.” And the woman was healed at that very time. And coming into the ruler’s house, and seeing the musicians and the people crying, the Christ told them, “Make way because the girl isn’t dead, but is only sleeping.” And they all laughed disrespectfully. But when everyone was put out, the Christ went in, and took her by the hand and the girl got up. And this story became famous all over the countryside.

Sight Brought Back to the Blind

    [27-31] And when Yeshua left there, two people who were blind followed along, crying, and saying, “Heir of David, have mercy on us.” And when the Christ came into the house, those who were blind came also: and Yeshua answered, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” And they said, “Yes, Christ.” So the Christ touched their eyes, saying, “As your faith is, let it happen to you, now.” And their eyes began to see; and Yeshua told them clearly, saying, “Don’t tell anyone.” But when they left, they made it famous throughout the whole country.

Speech Brought Back to the Dumb

    [32-35] As they went out, someone brought a person who couldn’t speak and who was overcome by an evil spirit to the Christ. And when the evil spirit was put out, the person who was dumb spoke: and the crowds were amazed, saying, “Nothing like this has ever been seen before in all Israel!” But the religious leaders said, “This person puts out evil spirits by the ruler of the evil spirits.” And Yeshua went throughout all the cities and towns, teaching in their worship services, and preaching the New Word of the realm of God, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

Few Workers

    [36-38] But when Yeshua saw the crowds, the Christ had compassion for them, because they were weak, and were scattered out, as animals having no keeper. Then Yeshua said to the followers, “The harvest is great, but the truth is, the workers are few; So pray that the God of the harvest will send workers to gather it in.”

The Twelve Followers Given Power

    10[1-15] And calling the twelve followers, the Christ gave them power over evil spirits, to put them out, and to heal all kinds of sicknesses and diseases. Now the names of the twelve followers are these: The first, Simon Peter, and Andrew, his brother; James and John, the sons of Zebedee; Philip, Bartholomew; Thomas, Matthew, the tax collector; James, the son of Alphaeus, Lebbaeus, who was called Thaddaeus; Simon, from Canaan, and Judas Iscariot, who handed over the Christ. These twelve Yeshua sent out, and told them, saying, “Don’t go to the cities of the other peoples, or into any city of the people of mixed heritage: But instead go to the lost ones of the house of Israel. And as you go, preach, saying, Heaven is here. Heal the sick, heal those with leprosy, give life to the dead, and put out evil spirits: you’ve been given freely, so give them freely. Don’t give money for your personal expenses, nor for your journey, nor bring two coats, nor extra shoes, nor even staples because workers are worthy of the food they eat. And whatever city or town you come to, ask who in it is worthy; and stay there until you leave that place. And when you come into a house, say hello to those there. And if they’re worthy, let your peace come on them: but if they aren’t worthy, let your peace return to you. And whoever won’t accept you, nor hear your words, when you leave out of that house or city, shake the dust off your feet. The truth is, it’ll be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Hated by Others for Christ’s Sake

    [16-25] I send you out as tamed animals to a bunch of wolves: so be as wise as snakes, and harmless as doves. But beware of the others because they’ll bring you to the courts, and punish you; And you’ll be brought to governors and rulers for My sake, for a witness against them. But when they arrest you, don’t worry about how or what you’ll speak because it’ll be given to you at that very time what to say. Because it isn’t you who speaks, but the Spirit of your God who speaks in you. And siblings will hand over siblings to death, and the parents, the children: and the children will go up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And you’ll be hated by everyone because of My Name: but those who are faithful to the end will be saved. But when they mistreat you in one city, run to another. The truth is, you won’t have gone to all the cities of Israel, till I come. The follower isn’t better than the teacher, nor the worker better than the owner. It’s enough for the followers to be like the teacher, and the workers to be like their owner. If they’ve called the owner of the house by the name of the devil, how much more they’ll call the children of the household names?

Pick Up Your Cross And Follow Me

     [26-39] So don’t be afraid of them because there isn’t anything covered, that won’t be uncovered; and secret, that won’t become known. What I tell you in secret, you speak openly: and what you hear whispered in your ear, preach at the top of your voice. And don’t be afraid of those who can kill the body, but aren’t able to kill the soul: but instead fear God, who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Aren’t two sparrows sold for a small coin? Not one of them will fall on the ground without your God knowing it. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid, you’re worth much more than many sparrows. So whoever says that they know Me to others, I’ll also say that I know them to My God who is in heaven. But whoever denies that they know Me to others, I’ll also disown that I know them to My God who is in heaven. Don’t think that I’ve come to send peace on the earth: I didn’t come to send peace, but instead disagreement. I’ve come to set children at odds against their parents, and in-law against in-law. And those who come against you will be those of your own home. Whoever loves their parents more than Me isn’t worthy of Me: and whoever loves their children more than Me isn’t worthy of Me. And whoever doesn’t pick up and carry their own cross of suffering, and follow after Me, isn’t worthy of Me. Whoever tries to save their life will lose it: and whoever willingly gives up their life for my sake will save it.

Accept Yeshua, accept God

    [40-42] Whoever accepts you accepts Me, and whoever accepts Me accepts the One who sent Me. Whoever accepts a great preacher in the name of a great preacher will get a great preacher’s reward; and whoever accepts a good person in the name of a good person will get a good person’s reward. And whoever gives a cup of cold water to drink to anyone, only in the name of a follower of Christ, the truth is; they’ll not lose their reward.”
