Jesus Heals a Paralytic
(Mark 2:1–12; Luke 5:17–26)

1AND going on board the vessel, he passed over, and came to his own city.

2And lo! they brought him a paralytic stretched on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, Be of good cheer, son; thy sins are forgiven thee. 3And lo! some of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. 4And Jesus, seeing their thoughts, said, wherefore do ye imagine evil things in your hearts? 5For which is the easier, to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? 6But that ye may know that the Son of man hath authority upon earth to forgive sins, (then he saith to the paralytic,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go into thy house. 7And he arose, and went to his house. 8But when the multitude saw it, they were astonished, and glorified God, who had given such power unto men.

Jesus Calls Matthew
(Mark 2:13–17; Luke 5:27–32)

9And Jesus passing from thence, saw a man sitting at the custom house, called Matthew: and saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.

10And it came to pass, as he sat in his house, many tax-gatherers and sinners came, and sat down at table with Jesus and his disciples. 11And the Pharisees observing it, said to his disciples, How is this, that your Master eateth with publicans and sinners? 12But Jesus hearing it, said unto them, They who are in the vigour of health have no need of the physician, but they who have illness. 13Go then, and learn what is said, ?I require mercy and not sacrifice:? for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Questions about Fasting
(Mark 2:18–20; Luke 5:33–35)

14Then came unto him disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees keep many fasts, but thy disciples fast not? 15And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber weep, whilst the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then will they fast.

The Patches and the Wineskins
(Mark 2:21–22; Luke 5:36–39)

16But no man ingrafts a patch of undressed cloth into an old garment, for the piece supplied taketh from the garment, and the rent becomes worse. 17Nor do they put new wine into old bottles: but if they do, the bottles burst, and the wine is spilt, and the bottles are destroyed: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

The Healing Touch of Jesus
(Mark 5:21–43; Luke 8:40–56)

18As he was speaking these things to them, behold, there came a ruler, and prostrated himself before him, saying, My daughter hath just now died: but come and lay thine hand upon her, and she shall live. 19And Jesus arose, and followed him, and his disciples also.

20And, behold, a woman, who had an h‘morrage twelve years, came behind, and touched the fringe of his garment: 21for she said within herself, If I only touch his garment, I shall be cured. 22Then Jesus, turning about and beholding her, said, Be encouraged, daughter; thy faith hath saved thee. And the woman was cured from that hour.

23And when Jesus was come into the ruler?s house, and saw the flute-players, and a multitude confusedly lamenting,

24he saith to them, Retire; for the little girl is not dead, but sleeping. And they derided him. 25So when the multitude was put out, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the little girl arose. 26And the fame of it went forth into all that country.

Jesus Heals the Blind and Mute
(Mark 7:31–37)

27And as Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying out, and saying, Have mercy on us, son of David! 28So when he came into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus said to them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yes, Lord. 29Then he touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. 30And their eyes were opened; and Jesus strictly charged them, saying, Take care that no person know it. 31But they going forth, blazoned his fame through all that country.

32And when they were coming out, behold, they brought unto him a man, dumb, a demoniac. 33And when the devil was cast out, the dumb man spoke: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, Never at any time was the like to this seen in Israel. 34But the Pharisees said, By the prince of the devils doth he cast the devils out.

The Lord of the Harvest
(Luke 10:1–12)

35And Jesus took a circuit through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of disease, and every malady among the people.

36And beholding the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them, because they were fainting, and lying here and there, as sheep that had no shepherd. 37Then said he to his disciples, The harvest indeed is abundant, but the labourers are few; 38entreat therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth workmen for his harvest.
