Jesus Heals Ten Lepers

Luke 17:11-18:14 - And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, ‘Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.’

14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, ‘Go show yourselves unto the priests.

And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

17 And Jesus answering said, ‘Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.’

19 And he said unto him, ‘Arise, go your way: your faith has made you whole.’

20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the Kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, ‘The Kingdom of God comes not with observation. 21 Neither shall they say, “Look here!” or, “Look there!” For the Kingdom of God is within you.’

22 And he said unto the disciples, ‘The days will come, when you shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and you shall not see it. 23 And they shall say to you, “See here.” or, “See there.” Go not after them, nor follow them. 24 For as the lightning, that shines out of the one part under heaven, shines unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

25 But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation. 26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. 31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

One Shall Be Taken, the Other Left

32 Remember Lot's wife. 33 Whoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.’

The Parable of the Unjust Judge

37 And they answered and said unto him, ‘Where, Lord?’ And he said unto them, ‘Wherever the body is, there will the eagles be gathered together.’
18And he spoke a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2 Saying, ‘There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, “Avenge me of my adversary.”

4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, “Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5 yet because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.”

6 And the Lord said, ‘Hear what the unjust judge said. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bears long with them?

8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man comes, shall he find faith on the earth?’

The Parable of the Publican and the Pharisee

9 And he spoke this parable unto certain which trusted that they were righteous, and despised others:

10 ‘Two men went up into the temple to pray: the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, “God, I thank you, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.” 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, “God be merciful to me a sinner.” 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalts himself shall be abased; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.’

Jesus on Divorce

Matthew 19:1-12 -And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan; 2 and great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.
3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, ‘Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?’

4 And he answered and said unto them, ‘Have you not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 and said, “For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?” 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.’
7 They said unto him, ‘Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?’

8 He said unto them, ‘Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. 9 And I say unto you, whoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry someone else, commits adultery: and whoso marries her who is put away commits adultery.’

10 His disciples say unto him, ‘If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.’

11 But he said unto them, ‘All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. 12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the Kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.’
‘Suffer the Little Children to Come to Me.’

Mark 10:13-16 - And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. 14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, ‘Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the Kingdom of God. 15 Truly I say unto you, whoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.’

16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.

‘Keep the Commandments’

Matthew 19:16-20:16 - And, behold, one came and said unto him, ‘Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?’ 17 And he said unto him, ‘Why do you call me good? There is none good but one, that is, God: but if you will enter into life, keep the commandments.’
18 He said unto him, ‘Which ones?’

Jesus said, ‘You shall do no murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, 19 Honor your father and your mother: and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

20 The young man said unto him, ‘All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?’

21 Jesus said unto him, ‘If you will be perfect, go and sell that you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.’

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, ‘Truly I say unto you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the Kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say unto you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God.’

25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, ‘Who then can be saved?’ 26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, ‘With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.’

27 Then Peter answered and said unto him, ‘Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed you; what shall we have therefore?’ 28 And Jesus said unto them, ‘Truly I say unto you, That you which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

29 And every one that has forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

The Parable of the Vinedresser

Matthew 20:1 - For the Kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a householder, which went out early in the morning to hire laborers into his vineyard. 2 And when he had agreed with the laborers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.

3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 4 And said unto them; “Go you also into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.” And they went their way. 5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.

6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and said unto them, “Why stand you here all the day idle?” 7 They say unto him, “Because no man has hired us.” He said unto them, “You also go into the vineyard; and whatever is right, that shall you receive.”

8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard said unto his steward, “Call the laborers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.” 9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. 10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.

11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the good man of the house, 12 Saying, “These last have worked but one hour, and you have made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.”

13 But he answered one of them, and said, “Friend, I do you no wrong: did not you agree with me for a penny? 14 Take what is yours, and go your way: I will give unto this last, even as unto you. 15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with my own? Is your eye evil, because I am good?” 16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.’

Jesus Predicts His Death

Mark 10:32-52 - And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him,

33 saying, ‘Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles: 34 And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.’

35 And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, ‘Master, we would that you should do for us whatever we shall desire.’ 36 And he said unto them, ‘What would you have me do for you?’

37 They said unto him, ‘Grant unto us that we may sit, one on your right hand, and the other on your left hand, in your glory.’ 38 But Jesus said unto them, ‘You know not what you ask: can you drink of the cup that I drink of, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?’

39 And they said unto him, ‘We can.’ And Jesus said unto them, ‘You shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall you be baptized: 40 But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not my to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.’

41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John. 42 But Jesus called them to him, and said unto them, ‘You know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.

‘So Shall it Not Be Among You…’

43 But so shall it not be among you: but whoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: 44 And whoever of you will be the chief, shall be servant of all. 45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.’

Jesus Heals Another Blind Man

46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.

47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, ‘Jesus, you Son of David, have mercy on me.’ 48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, ‘You Son of David, have mercy on me!’

49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they called the blind man, saying unto him, ‘Be of good comfort, rise; he’s asking for you.’ 50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.

51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, ‘What will you that I should do for you?’ The blind man said unto him, ‘Lord, that I might receive my sight.’ 52 And Jesus said unto him, ‘Go your way; your faith has made you whole.’ And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
