The Transfiguration
(Matthew 17:1–13; Luke 9:28–36; 2 Peter 1:16–21)

1And He said unto them, Verily I tell you, that there are some of those who stand here, that shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

2And after six days Jesus taketh with Him Peter, and James, and John, and bringeth them up by themselves to a high mountain apart; and was transfigured before them: 3and his raiment shone, being exceeding white as snow, so as no fuller on earth can whiten. 4And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. 5Then said Peter to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: let us make three tabernacles; one for Thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: 6for he knew not what to say, for they were sore afraid. 7And there was a cloud overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, hear ye Him. 8And immediately looking round about, they saw no more of any one, but Jesus alone with them.

9And as they came down from the mountain, He charged them to tell no one what they had seen, till after the Son of man were risen from the dead. 10And they laid hold on that expression, querying among themselves, what means the rising from the dead? 11Then they asked Him, saying, Why do the scribes say, that Elias must come first? 12And He answered and told them, Elias doth indeed come first, and settle all things: He told them likewise how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things and be used contemptuously. 13But I tell you, that Elias is come, and they have done to him whatever they would, as it is written of him.

The Boy with an Evil Spirit
(Matthew 17:14–18; Luke 9:37–42)

14And when He came to the other disciples, He saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes disputing with them. 15And immediately all the people, when they saw Him, were astonished; and running to Him, saluted Him. 16And he asked the scribes, What are ye disputing about? 17And one of the multitude answered, and said, Master I have brought unto thee my son, who is possessed by a dumb spirit: 18and wherever it seizeth him, it convulseth him; and he fometh, and gnasheth his teeth, and thus he pineth away: and I desired thy disciples to cast him out, and they could not. 19And He answered and said, O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? bring him to me. 20And they brought him to Him: and as soon as he saw Him, immediately the spirit threw him into convulsions: and he fell upon the ground, and rolled about foming. 21And He asked his father, How long is it since this befel him? And he said, From a child. 22And it has often thrown him both into the fire and into the waters to destroy him. But if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us and help us. 23And Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. 24And the father of the child immediately cried out and said with tears, Lord, I believe, help thou my unbelief. 25when Jesus saw the people flock together, He rebuked the impure spirit, and said to him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I command thee, Come out of him, and enter no more into him. 26And when he had rored and vehemently convulsed him, he came out of him: and the child was as one dead, so that many said, that he was dead. 27But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. 28And when He was come into the house, his disciples asked Him in private, Why could not we cast him out? 29And He said unto them, This kind cannot be cast out, but by prayer and fasting.

The Second Prediction of the Passion
(Matthew 17:22–23; Luke 9:43–45)

30And they departed from thence and passed through Galilee, and He was not willing that any should know it; 31for He was instructing his disciples, and told them, the Son of man is going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will put Him to death; and on the third day, after his being put to death, He will rise again. 32But they knew not his meaning, and were afraid to ask Him.

The Greatest in the Kingdom
(Matthew 18:1–5; Luke 9:46–50)

33And he came to Capernaum; and when He was in the house, He asked them, What were ye disputing about among yourselves by the way? 34But they held their peace; for they had been disputing with each other by the way who should be the greatest. 35So He sat down and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any one would be first, let him be last of all, and servant of all. 36And He took a child and set him in the midst of them, and taking him in his arms He said unto them,

37Whoever shall receive one of these little children in my name, receiveth me; and whosoever receiveth me, receiveth not me only, but Him that sent me.

38But John answered Him and said, Master, we saw one casting out demons in thy name, who doth not follow us; and we forbade him, because he followeth not us. 39But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no one, that worketh a miracle in my name, and can presently speak evil of me: 40for he that is not against us, is for us. 41For whosoever shall give you but a cup of water to drink, for my sake; because ye are Christ's, I assure you, he shall not lose his reward.

Temptations and Trespasses
(Matthew 18:6–9; Luke 17:1–4)

42And whosoever shall cause one of these little ones, that believe in me, to offend, it were better for him, if a milstone were laid upon his neck, and he were cast into the sea. 43And if thy hand cause thee to offend, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands, to go into hell, into the fire that will never be extinguished; 44where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 45And if thy foot cause thee to offend, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life lame, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the inextinguishable fire; 46where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 47And if thine eye cause thee to offend, cast it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell-fire; 48where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Good Salt
(Matthew 5:13–16; Luke 14:34–35)

49For every one shall be as it were salted by fire, and every sacrifice shall be seasoned as with salt. 50Salt is useful, but if the salt become insipid, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt therefore in yourselves, and as a proof of it be at peace one with another.
