The Beheading of John
(Mark 6:14–29; Luke 9:7–9)

1At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the fame of Jesus, 2and said to his servants, This is John the baptist, he is certainly risen from the dead, and therefore miraculous things are done by him:

3for Herod had apprehended John, and bound him, and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife; 4for John said to Him, It is not lawful for thee to have her: and he would have put him to death, 5but that he was afraid of the people; for they esteemed him as a prophet.

6But when Herod's birth-day was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod, so 7that he promised her with an oath to give her whatever she would ask: 8and she, being before instructed by her mother, said, Give me here in a dish the head of John the baptist: 9at which the king was distressed, but because of his oath, and of those who sat at table with him, he ordered it to be given her; 10and he sent and beheaded John in the prison, 11and his head was brought in a dish, and given to the young princess, who carried it to her mother: 12and his disciples came and took up the body and buried it, and then went and told Jesus.

The Feeding of the Five Thousand
(Mark 6:30–44; Luke 9:10–17; John 6:1–15)

13And when Jesus heard it, He departed from thence in a ship to a solitary place of retirement: but the people hearing where He was followed Him on foot from the cities: 14and when Jesus came out of the ship, He saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them; and He healed their sick.

15Now when it was evening his disciples came to Him and said, This is a desert place, and meal-time is now past; dismiss the people, that they may go away to the towns, and buy themselves victuals. 16But Jesus said to them, they have no need to go away, do ye give them something to eat. 17And they said, we have nothing here but five loaves and two fishes: 18and He said, bring them hither to me. 19And having ordered the multitudes to sit down upon the grass, and taken the five loaves and the two fishes, He looked up to heaven and blessed them; and He brake the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples to the people: and they did all eat, and were satisfied; 20and they took up what was left even of fragments twelve baskets full. 21Now they that had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

Jesus Walks on Water
(Mark 6:45–52; John 6:16–21)

22And presently after Jesus obliged the disciples to get into the ship, and to go before Him to the other side, while He dismissed the multitudes: 23and when He had dismissed them, He went up to a hill in private to pray. 24And in the evening He was there alone. Now the ship was by this time in the midst of the sea, and violently tossed by the waves; for the wind was contrary: 25but in the fourth watch of the night Jesus came to them walking on the sea: 26and when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were affrighted and said, It is an apparition; 27and they cried out for fear: but Jesus immediately spake to them, saying, Take courage, it is I, be not afraid.

28Then Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it be thou, command me to come unto thee upon the waters. 29And He said, Come. 30And Peter went down from the ship and walked upon the waters to go to Jesus: but seeing the wind boisterous, he was afraid, and beginning to sink cried out, Lord, save me. 31And Jesus, immediately stretching forth his hand, laid hold of him, and saith to him, O man of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? 32So they got into the ship, and the wind ceased. 33Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped Him, saying, Thou art indeed the Son of God.

Jesus Heals at Gennesaret
(Mark 6:53–56)

34And they passed over and came into the country of Gennesaret. 35And the men of that place getting knowledge of Him, sent into all that country about; and they brought to Him all that were ill; 36and intreated Him that they might but touch the border of his garment; and as many as touched Him were made perfectly well.
