Jesus Heals a Paralytic
(Matthew 9:1–8; Luke 5:17–26)

1AND again he entered into Capernaum after some days: and it was heard, that he was in the house; 2and immediately many collected round him, so that there was no room, not even at the door; and he spake the word to them. 3And they come to him, carrying a paralytic, borne of four: 4and not being able to come nigh him because of the crowd, they stripped off the roofing of the house where he was; and having broken a way through, they let down with ropes the couch, on which the paralytic lay. 5Then Jesus beholding their faith, saith to the paralytic, Son, thy sins are forgiven thee. 6Now there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, 7Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but the one God? 8And instantly Jesus knowing by his spirit, that they reasoned thus among each other, said to them, Why reason ye about these things in your hearts?

9Which is the easier thing, to say to a paralytic, Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Arise and take up thy couch, and walk away? 10But that ye may know that the Son of man hath authority upon earth to forgive sins, he saith to the paralytic,

11I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thy house. 12And he arose instantly, and taking up his couch, went out before them all; so that they were all astonished, and glorified God, saying, We never before saw any thing like this.

Jesus Calls Levi
(Matthew 9:9–13; Luke 5:27–32)

13And he went forth again to the sea side; and all the people came unto him; and he taught them.

14And passing by, he saw Levi the son of Alpheus sitting at the custom-house, and he saith to him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him

15And it came to pass, as he sat at table in his house, many publicans also, and sinners, sat down with Jesus and his disciples; for they were numerous, and they followed him. 16And the scribes and the Pharisees seeing him eat with publicans and sinners, said to his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners? 17And when Jesus heard it, he said unto them, They who are in strong health have no need of a physician, but they who have illness: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Questions about Fasting
(Matthew 9:14–15; Luke 5:33–35)

18And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees kept fasts; and they came and said to him, Wherefore do the disciples of John, and of the Pharisees, fast? but thy disciples keep no fast. 19And Jesus said to them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. 20But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

The Patches and the Wineskins
(Matthew 9:16–17; Luke 5:36–39)

21And no man seweth on a patch of cloth undressed upon an old garment: but if otherwise, the new piece supplied taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse. 22And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; but if otherwise, the new wine will burst the bottles, and the wine will be spilt, and the bottles destroyed: but new wine must be put into new bottles.

The Lord of the Sabbath
(Matthew 12:1–8; Luke 6:1–5)

23And he was walking through the cornfields on the sabbath; and his disciples as they went on the road plucked the ears of corn. 24And the Pharisees said to him, See, why are they doing on the sabbath, what is not lawful? 25And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he was under necessity, and was hungry, himself and they who were with him? 26How he entered into the house of God to Abiathar the high-priest; and did eat the shewbread, which it was not lawful for any to eat except the priests, and he gave also to those who were with him? 27And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath. 28Wherefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
