    [*Note: The three years into which I have divided the Great
      Galilaean Ministry are not exact years. The First Year begins
      shortly after the Passover mentioned in John 2:13. The Second Year
      begins at the Passover mentioned in John 5:1. And the Third Year
      begins shortly before the Passover mentioned in John 6:4. The
      Great Galilaean Ministry ends a few months before the Passover
      mentioned in John 13:1.]

Plate A*

    [*Note: I have divided the Great Galilaean Ministry into 13
      "plates" (lettered A through M). Within each of these plates the
      gospel writers generally agree as to chronology. Matthew arranges
      his plates A-C-G-B-J-D-E-L-H-F-I-K-M. Mark arranges his plates A-
      B-C-D-F-I-J-E-K-L-M. And Luke arranges his plates A-B-C-D-F-G-H-I-
      J-E-L-M. Matthew appears to have arranged his stories more by
      topic than by chronology. Luke 4:42 links Plates B and C. Matthew
      9:18 links Plates D and E. Luke 7:1 links Plates F and G. Luke
      7:18 links Plates G and H. And Mark 4:35 links Plates I and J.]

30. John the Baptist Jailed
    [Luke 3:19-20]

Lk 3:19
    [Lk]  But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias
            his brother Philip's wife,
            and for all the evils which Herod had done,
Lk 3:20
    [Lk]  added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.

31. Jesus Begins His Galilaean Ministry
    [Matthew 4:12, 17; Mark 1:14-15; & Luke 4:14-15]

Mt 4:12
Mk 1:14
Lk 4:14
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And Jesus,
    [Mt Mk   ]  when
    [Mt      ]  he had heard that
    [Mt Mk   ]  John was cast into prison,
    [Mt    Lk]  returned
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk   ]  came
    [      Lk]  in the power of the Spirit
    [Mt Mk Lk]  into Galilee.
Mt 4:17
    [Mt      ]  From that time Jesus began
    [Mt Mk   ]  preaching
    [   Mk   ]  the gospel of the kingdom of God,
Mk 1:15
    [Mt Mk   ]  and saying,
    [   Mk   ]  The time is fulfilled, and
    [Mt Mk   ]  the kingdom of
    [   Mk   ]  God
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  heaven
    [Mt Mk   ]  is at hand: repent,
    [   Mk   ]  and believe the gospel.
    [      Lk]  And there went out a fame of him
                  through all the region round about.
Lk 4:15
    [      Lk]  And he taught in their synagogues,
                  being glorified of all.

32. Jesus Rejected at Nazareth
    [Luke 4:16-30]

Lk 4:16
    [Lk]  And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up:
            and, as his custom was,
            he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day,
            and stood up for to read.
Lk 4:17
    [Lk]  And there was delivered unto him
            the book of the prophet Esaias.
            And when he had opened the book,
            he found the place where it was written,
Lk 4:18
    [Lk]  The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me,
            because he hath anointed me
            to preach the gospel to the poor;
            he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,
            to preach deliverance to the captives,
            and recovering of sight to the blind,
            to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Lk 4:19
    [Lk]  to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Lk 4:20
    [Lk]  And he closed the book,
            and he gave [it] again to the minister, and sat down.
            And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue
            were fastened on him.
Lk 4:21
    [Lk]  And he began to say unto them,
            This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
Lk 4:22
    [Lk]  And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words
            which proceeded out of his mouth.
            And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?
Lk 4:23
    [Lk]  And he said unto them,
            Ye will surely say unto me this proverb,
            Physician, heal thyself:
            whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum,
            do also here in thy country.
Lk 4:24
    [Lk]  And he said, Verily I say unto you,
            No prophet is accepted in his own country.
Lk 4:25
    [Lk]  But I tell you of a truth,
            many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias,
            when the heaven was shut up three years and six months,
            when great famine was throughout all the land;
Lk 4:26
    [Lk]  but unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta,
            [a city] of Sidon, unto a woman [that was] a widow.
Lk 4:27
    [Lk]  And many lepers were in Israel
            in the time of Eliseus the prophet;
            and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.
Lk 4:28
    [Lk]  And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things,
            were filled with wrath,
Lk 4:29
    [Lk]  and rose up, and thrust him out of the city,
            and led him unto the brow of the hill
            whereon their city was built,
            that they might cast him down headlong.
Lk 4:30
    [Lk]  But he passing through the midst of them went his way.

33. Jesus Settles in Capernaum
    [Matthew 4:13-16 & Luke 4:31a ( of Galilee,)]

Mt 4:13
Lk 4:31a
    [Mt Lk]  And
    [Mt   ]  leaving Nazareth,
    [Mt Lk]  he came
    [   Lk]  down
    [Mt   ]  and dwelt
    [Mt Lk]  in Capernaum,
    [   Lk]  a city of Galilee,
    [Mt   ]  which is upon the sea coast,
               in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:
Mt 4:14
    [Mt   ]  that it might be fulfilled
               which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
Mt 4:15
    [Mt   ]  The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim,
               [by] the way of the sea, beyond Jordan,
               Galilee of the Gentiles;
Mt 4:16
    [Mt   ]  the people which sat in darkness saw great light;
               and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death
               light is sprung up.

34. Jesus Calls Four Fishermen
    [Matthew 4:18-22 & Mark 1:16-20]

Mt 4:18
Mk 1:16
    [Mt Mk]  And
    [Mt   ]  Jesus,
    [Mt Mk]  walking by the sea of Galilee, saw
    [Mt   ]  two brethren,
    [Mt Mk]  Simon
    [Mt   ]  called Peter,
    [Mt Mk]  and Andrew his brother,
               casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
Mt 4:19
Mk 1:17
    [Mt Mk]  And
    [   Mk]  Jesus
    [Mt Mk]  said unto them, Follow me, and I will make you
    [   Mk]  to become
    [Mt Mk]  fishers of men.
Mt 4:20
Mk 1:18
    [Mt Mk]  And straightway they left
    [   Mk]  their
    [Mt Mk]  nets, and followed him.
Mt 4:21
Mk 1:19
    [Mt Mk]  And going on
    [   Mk]  a little further
    [Mt Mk]  thence, he saw
    [Mt   ]  other two brethren,
    [Mt Mk]  James the [son] of Zebedee, and John his brother,
    [   Mk]  who also were
    [Mt Mk]  in the ship
    [Mt   ]  with Zebedee their father,
    [Mt Mk]  mending their nets.
Mk 1:20
    [Mt Mk]  And
    [   Mk]  straightway
    [Mt Mk]  he called them:
Mt 4:22
    [Mt Mk]  and they
    [Mt   ]  immediately
    [Mt Mk]  left
    [Mt   ]  the ship and
    [Mt Mk]  their father
    [   Mk]  Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants,
    [Mt Mk]  and followed him.

    [At this point Matthew jumps to Plate C. But Luke 4:42 reveals
      that the events which begin Plate C took place the morning after
      the events which close Plate B. Hence I follow Mark and Luke at
      this point.]

Plate B

35. The Capernaum Demoniac
    [Mark 1:21-28 & Luke 4:31b-37 (and taught them...)]

Mk 1:21
    [Mk   ]  And they went into Capernaum;
Lk 4:31b
    [Mk Lk]  and
    [Mk   ]  straightway
    [Mk Lk]  on the sabbath days
    [Mk   ]  he entered into the synagogue, and
    [Mk Lk]  taught
    [   Lk]  them.
Mk 1:22
Lk 4:32
    [Mk Lk]  And they were astonished at his doctrine: for
    [Mk   ]  he taught them as one that had authority,
               and not as the scribes,
    [     ]  [and]
    [   Lk]  his word was with power.
Mk 1:23
Lk 4:33
    [Mk Lk]  And there was in
    [Mk   ]  their
    [Mk Lk]  synagogue a man with a spirit
    [   Lk]  of an
    [Mk Lk]  unclean
    [   Lk]  devil;
    [Mk Lk]  and he cried out
    [   Lk]  with a loud voice,
Mk 1:24
Lk 4:34
    [Mk Lk]  saying, Let [us] alone; what have we to do with thee,
               [thou] Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us?
               I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.
Mk 1:25
Lk 4:35
    [Mk Lk]  And Jesus rebuked him, saying,
               Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
Mk 1:26
    [Mk Lk]  And when the
    [Mk   ]  spirit
    [     ]  [of the]
    [Mk   ]  unclean
    [   Lk]  devil
    [Mk Lk]  had
    [Mk   ]  torn him,
    [     ]  [and]
    [   Lk]  thrown him in the midst,
    [Mk   ]  and cried with a loud voice,
    [Mk Lk]  he came out of him,
    [   Lk]  and hurt him not.
Mk 1:27
Lk 4:36
    [Mk Lk]  And they were all amazed,
    [Mk   ]  insomuch that
    [Mk Lk]  they
    [   Lk]  spake
    [     ]  [and]
    [Mk   ]  questioned
    [Mk Lk]  among themselves, saying,
    [Mk   ]  What thing is this?
    [Mk Lk]  what
    [Mk   ]  new
    [Mk Lk]  doctrine [is] this? for with authority
    [   Lk]  and power
    [Mk Lk]  he commandeth
    [Mk   ]  even
    [Mk Lk]  the unclean spirits, and they
    [Mk   ]  do obey him
    [     ]  [and]
    [   Lk]  come out.
Mk 1:28
Lk 4:37
    [Mk Lk]  And
    [Mk   ]  immediately
    [Mk Lk]  the fame of him went out into
    [   Lk]  every place of
    [Mk   ]  all
    [Mk Lk]  the region round about
    [Mk   ]  Galilee.

36. Jesus Heals Peter's Mother-in-law
    [Matthew 8:14-15; Mark 1:29-31; & Luke 4:38-39]

Mt 8:14
Lk 4:38
    [Mt    Lk]  And
    [Mt      ]  Jesus
    [      Lk]  arose:
Mk 1:29
    [   Mk   ]  and forthwith, when they were come
    [   Mk Lk]  out of the synagogue,
    [   Mk   ]  they
    [Mt Mk Lk]  entered into the house of
    [   Mk Lk]  Simon
    [Mt      ]  Peter
    [   Mk   ]  and Andrew, with James and John.
Mk 1:30
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt      ]  he saw
    [   Mk Lk]  Simon's
    [Mt Mk Lk]  wife's mother
    [      Lk]  was
    [Mt Mk   ]  laid,
    [Mt      ]  and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  sick of a
    [      Lk]  great
    [Mt Mk Lk]  fever;
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [   Mk   ]  anon
    [   Mk Lk]  they
    [   Mk   ]  tell him of her
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  besought him for her.
Mt 8:15
Mk 1:31
Lk 4:39
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And he
    [   Mk   ]  came
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  stood over her, and rebuked the fever,
    [       ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  touched
    [   Mk   ]  and took
    [Mt Mk   ]  her
    [   Mk   ]  by the
    [Mt Mk   ]  hand,
    [   Mk   ]  and lifted her up;
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [   Mk   ]  immediately
    [Mt Mk   ]  the fever
    [Mt Mk Lk]  left her: and
    [      Lk]  immediately
    [Mt Mk Lk]  she
    [Mt    Lk]  arose and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  ministered unto them.

37. Jesus Heals Many after Sunset*
    [Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 1:32-34; & Luke 4:40-41]

    [*Note: The Jewish Sabbath ends at sunset. Hence the people waited
      until sunset to approach Jesus for healing.]

Mt 8:16a
Mk 1:32
Lk 4:40
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  at even,
    [   Mk Lk]  when the sun did set,
    [Mt Mk   ]  they brought unto him
    [   Mk   ]  all that were diseased, and
    [Mt      ]  many
    [Mt Mk   ]  that were possessed with devils;
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  all they that had any sick with divers diseases
                  brought them unto him.
Mk 1:33
    [   Mk   ]  And all the city was gathered together at the door.
Mt 8:16c
Mk 1:34
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And he
    [      Lk]  laid his hands on every one of them, and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  healed
    [Mt      ]  all
    [        ]  [of the]
    [   Mk   ]  many
    [Mt Mk   ]  that were sick
    [   Mk   ]  of divers diseases:
Mt 8:17
    [Mt      ]  that it might be fulfilled
                  which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
                  Himself took our infirmities,
                  and bare [our] sicknesses.
Mt 8:16b
Lk 4:41
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  he
    [      Lk]  also
    [Mt Mk   ]  cast out
    [   Mk   ]  many
    [Mt      ]  spirits
    [        ]  [of]
    [   Mk Lk]  devils
    [Mt      ]  with [his] word;
    [        ]  [and they]
    [      Lk]  came out of many, crying out, and saying,
                  Thou art Christ the Son of God.
    [   Mk Lk]  And he
    [      Lk]  rebuking
    [   Mk   ]  the devils
    [   Mk Lk]  suffered
    [      Lk]  them
    [   Mk Lk]  not to speak; because they knew
    [   Mk   ]  him,
    [      Lk]  that he was Christ.

    [At this point Matthew jumps to Plate J. But Luke 4:42 reveals
      that the events which begin Plate C took place the morning after
      the events which close Plate B. Hence I follow Mark and Luke at
      this point.]

Plate C

38. Jesus Rises Early to Pray
    [Mark 1:35-38 & Luke 4:42-43]

Mk 1:35
Lk 4:42
    [Mk Lk]  And in the morning,
    [Mk   ]  rising up a great while before day,
    [Mk Lk]  he went
    [Mk   ]  out,
    [Mk Lk]  and departed into a desert place,
    [Mk   ]  and there prayed.
Mk 1:36
    [Mk Lk]  And
    [Mk   ]  Simon and
    [   Lk]  the people
    [Mk   ]  that were with him followed after
    [     ]  [and]
    [   Lk]  sought
    [Mk Lk]  him.
Mk 1:37
    [Mk Lk]  And
    [Mk   ]  when they had found him, they
    [   Lk]  came
    [     ]  [and]
    [Mk   ]  said
    [Mk Lk]  unto him,
    [Mk   ]  All [men] seek for thee.
Mk 1:38
    [Mk   ]  And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns,
               that I may preach there also.
    [   Lk]  And
    [     ]  [they]
    [   Lk]  stayed him, that he should not depart from them.
Lk 4:43
    [   Lk]  And he said unto them,
               I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also:
    [Mk Lk]  for therefore
    [   Lk]  am
    [Mk Lk]  I
    [   Lk]  sent
    [     ]  [and]
    [Mk   ]  came forth.

39. Jesus' First Circuit through Galilee
    [Matthew 4:23-25; Mark 1:39; & Luke 4:44]

Mt 4:23
Mk 1:39
Lk 4:44
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt      ]  Jesus went
    [Mt Mk   ]  throughout all
    [Mt Mk Lk]  Galilee,
    [Mt      ]  teaching
    [Mt Mk Lk]  in
    [Mt Mk   ]  their
    [Mt Mk Lk]  synagogues,
    [Mt      ]  and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  preaching
    [Mt      ]  the gospel of the kingdom,
    [   Mk   ]  and casting out devils,
    [Mt      ]  and healing all manner of sickness
                  and all manner of disease among the people.
Mt 4:24
    [Mt      ]  And his fame went throughout all Syria:
                  and they brought unto him all sick people
                  that were taken with divers diseases and torments,
                  and those which were possessed with devils,
                  and those which were lunatick,
                  and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.
Mt 4:25
    [Mt      ]  And there followed him great multitudes of people
                  from Galilee, and [from] Decapolis,
                  and [from] Jerusalem, and [from] Judaea,
                  and [from] beyond Jordan.

40. The Sermon on the Mount
    [Matthew 5:1-8:1]

Mt 5:1
    [Mt]  And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain:
            and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
Mt 5:2
    [Mt]  and he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
Mt 5:3
    [Mt]  Blessed [are] the poor in spirit:
            for their's is the kingdom of heaven.
Mt 5:4
    [Mt]  Blessed [are] they that mourn:
            for they shall be comforted.
Mt 5:5
    [Mt]  Blessed [are] the meek:
            for they shall inherit the earth.
Mt 5:6
    [Mt]  Blessed [are] they
            which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:
            for they shall be filled.
Mt 5:7
    [Mt]  Blessed [are] the merciful:
            for they shall obtain mercy.
Mt 5:8
    [Mt]  Blessed [are] the pure in heart:
            for they shall see God.
Mt 5:9
    [Mt]  Blessed [are] the peacemakers:
            for they shall be called the children of God.
Mt 5:10
    [Mt]  Blessed [are] they
            which are persecuted for righteousness' sake:
            for their's is the kingdom of heaven.
Mt 5:11
    [Mt]  Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you,
            and persecute [you], and shall say all manner of evil
            against you falsely, for my sake.
Mt 5:12
    [Mt]  Rejoice, and be exceeding glad:
            for great [is] your reward in heaven:
            for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Mt 5:13
    [Mt]  Ye are the salt of the earth:
            but if the salt have lost his savour,
            wherewith shall it be salted?
            it is thenceforth good for nothing,
            but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Mt 5:14
    [Mt]  Ye are the light of the world.
            A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Mt 5:15
    [Mt]  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel,
            but on a candlestick;
            and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Mt 5:16
    [Mt]  Let your light so shine before men,
            that they may see your good works,
            and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Mt 5:17
    [Mt]  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets:
            I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Mt 5:18
    [Mt]  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass,
            one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law,
            till all be fulfilled.
Mt 5:19
    [Mt]  Whosoever therefore shall break
            one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so,
            he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:
            but whosoever shall do and teach [them],
            the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Mt 5:20
    [Mt]  For I say unto you,
            That except your righteousness shall exceed
            [the righteousness] of the scribes and Pharisees,
            ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Mt 5:21
    [Mt]  Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time,
            Thou shalt not kill;
            and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
Mt 5:22
    [Mt]  but I say unto you,
            That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause
            shall be in danger of the judgment:
            and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca,
            shall be in danger of the council:
            but whosoever shall say, Thou fool,
            shall be in danger of hell fire.
Mt 5:23
    [Mt]  Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar,
            and there rememberest
            that thy brother hath ought against thee;
Mt 5:24
    [Mt]  leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way;
            first be reconciled to thy brother,
            and then come and offer thy gift.
Mt 5:25
    [Mt]  Agree with thine adversary quickly,
            whiles thou art in the way with him;
            lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge,
            and the judge deliver thee to the officer,
            and thou be cast into prison.
Mt 5:26
    [Mt]  Verily I say unto thee,
            Thou shalt by no means come out thence,
            till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
Mt 5:27
    [Mt]  Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time,
            Thou shalt not commit adultery:
Mt 5:28
    [Mt]  but I say unto you,
            That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her
            hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Mt 5:29
    [Mt]  And if thy right eye offend thee,
            pluck it out, and cast [it] from thee:
            for it is profitable for thee
            that one of thy members should perish,
            and not [that] thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Mt 5:30
    [Mt]  And if thy right hand offend thee,
            cut it off, and cast [it] from thee:
            for it is profitable for thee
            that one of thy members should perish,
            and not [that] thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Mt 5:31
    [Mt]  It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife,
            let him give her a writing of divorcement:
Mt 5:32
    [Mt]  but I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife,
            saving for the cause of fornication,
            causeth her to commit adultery:
            and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced
            committeth adultery.
Mt 5:33
    [Mt]  Again, ye have heard
            that it hath been said by them of old time,
            Thou shalt not forswear thyself,
            but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
Mt 5:34
    [Mt]  but I say unto you, Swear not at all;
            neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:
Mt 5:35
    [Mt]  nor by the earth; for it is his footstool:
            neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
Mt 5:36
    [Mt]  Neither shalt thou swear by thy head,
            because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
Mt 5:37
    [Mt]  But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay:
           for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
Mt 5:38
    [Mt]  Ye have heard that it hath been said,
            An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
Mt 5:39
    [Mt]  but I say unto you, That ye resist not evil:
            but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek,
            turn to him the other also.
Mt 5:40
    [Mt]  And if any man will sue thee at the law,
            and take away thy coat, let him have [thy] cloke also.
Mt 5:41
    [Mt]  And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile,
            go with him twain.
Mt 5:42
    [Mt]  Give to him that asketh thee,
            and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
Mt 5:43
    [Mt]  Ye have heard that it hath been said,
            Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
Mt 5:44
    [Mt]  But I say unto you, Love your enemies,
            bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,
            and pray for them which despitefully use you,
            and persecute you;
Mt 5:45
    [Mt]  that ye may be the children
            of your Father which is in heaven:
            for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good,
            and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Mt 5:46
    [Mt]  For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye?
            do not even the publicans the same?
Mt 5:47
    [Mt]  And if ye salute your brethren only,
            what do ye more [than others]?
            do not even the publicans so?
Mt 5:48
    [Mt]  Be ye therefore perfect,
            even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Mt 6:1
    [Mt]  Take heed that ye do not your alms before men,
            to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward
            of your Father which is in heaven.
Mt 6:2
    [Mt]  Therefore when thou doest [thine] alms,
            do not sound a trumpet before thee,
            as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets,
            that they may have glory of men.
            Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Mt 6:3
    [Mt]  But when thou doest alms,
            let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
Mt 6:4
    [Mt]  that thine alms may be in secret:
            and thy Father which seeth in secret
            himself shall reward thee openly.
Mt 6:5
    [Mt]  And when thou prayest,
            thou shalt not be as the hypocrites [are]:
            for they love to pray standing in the synagogues
            and in the corners of the streets,
            that they may be seen of men.
            Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Mt 6:6
    [Mt]  But thou, when thou prayest,
            enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door,
            pray to thy Father which is in secret;
            and thy Father which seeth in secret
            shall reward thee openly.
Mt 6:7
    [Mt]  But when ye pray,
            use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]:
            for they think that they shall be heard
            for their much speaking.
Mt 6:8
    [Mt]  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father
            knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
Mt 6:9
    [Mt]  After this manner therefore pray ye:
            Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Mt 6:10
    [Mt]  Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done
            in earth, as [it is] in heaven.
Mt 6:11
    [Mt]  Give us this day our daily bread.
Mt 6:12
    [Mt]  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
Mt 6:13
    [Mt]  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
            For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
            and the glory, for ever. Amen.
Mt 6:14
    [Mt]  For if ye forgive men their trespasses,
            your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
Mt 6:15
    [Mt]  but if ye forgive not men their trespasses,
            neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Mt 6:16
    [Mt]  Moreover when ye fast,
            be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance:
            for they disfigure their faces,
            that they may appear unto men to fast.
            Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
Mt 6:17
    [Mt]  But thou, when thou fastest,
            anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
Mt 6:18
    [Mt]  that thou appear not unto men to fast,
            but unto thy Father which is in secret:
            and thy Father, which seeth in secret,
            shall reward thee openly.
Mt 6:19
    [Mt]  Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
            where moth and rust doth corrupt,
            and where thieves break through and steal:
Mt 6:20
    [Mt]  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
            where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
            and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
Mt 6:21
    [Mt]  for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Mt 6:22
    [Mt]  The light of the body is the eye:
            if therefore thine eye be single,
            thy whole body shall be full of light.
Mt 6:23
    [Mt]  But if thine eye be evil,
            thy whole body shall be full of darkness.
            If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness,
            how great [is] that darkness!
Mt 6:24
    [Mt]  No man can serve two masters:
            for either he will hate the one, and love the other;
            or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.
            Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Mt 6:25
    [Mt]  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life,
            what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink;
           nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.
            Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Mt 6:26
    [Mt]  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not,
            neither do they reap, nor gather into barns;
            yet your heavenly Father feedeth them.
            Are ye not much better than they?
Mt 6:27
    [Mt]  Which of you by taking thought
            can add one cubit unto his stature?
Mt 6:28
    [Mt]  And why take ye thought for raiment?
            Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow;
            they toil not, neither do they spin:
Mt 6:29
    [Mt]  and yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory
            was not arrayed like one of these.
Mt 6:30
    [Mt]  Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field,
            which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven,
            [shall he] not much more [clothe] you, O ye of little faith?
Mt 6:31
    [Mt]  Therefore take no thought, saying,
            What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink?
            or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
Mt 6:32
    [Mt]  (for after all these things do the Gentiles seek:)
            for your heavenly Father knoweth
            that ye have need of all these things.
Mt 6:33
    [Mt]  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
            and all these things shall be added unto you.
Mt 6:34
    [Mt]  Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
            for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
            Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof.
Mt 7:1
    [Mt]  Judge not, that ye be not judged.
Mt 7:2
    [Mt]  For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged:
            and with what measure ye mete,
            it shall be measured to you again.
Mt 7:3
    [Mt]  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye,
           but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Mt 7:4
    [Mt]  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother,
            Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye;
            and, behold, a beam [is] in thine own eye?
Mt 7:5
    [Mt]  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye;
            and then shalt thou see clearly
            to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
Mt 7:6
    [Mt]  Give not that which is holy unto the dogs,
            neither cast ye your pearls before swine,
            lest they trample them under their feet,
            and turn again and rend you.
Mt 7:7
    [Mt]  Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;
            knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Mt 7:8
    [Mt]  for every one that asketh receiveth;
            and he that seeketh findeth;
            and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Mt 7:9
    [Mt]  Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread,
            will he give him a stone?
Mt 7:10
    [Mt]  or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
Mt 7:11
    [Mt]  If ye then, being evil,
            know how to give good gifts unto your children,
            how much more shall your Father which is in heaven
            give good things to them that ask him?
Mt 7:12
    [Mt]  Therefore all things whatsoever ye would
            that men should do to you, do ye even so to them:
            for this is the law and the prophets.
Mt 7:13
    [Mt]  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate,
            and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction,
            and many there be which go in thereat:
Mt 7:14
    [Mt]  because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way,
            which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Mt 7:15
    [Mt]  Beware of false prophets,
            which come to you in sheep's clothing,
            but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Mt 7:16
    [Mt]  Ye shall know them by their fruits.
            Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mt 7:17
    [Mt]  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit;
            but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mt 7:18
    [Mt]  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit,
            neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Mt 7:19
    [Mt]  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit
            is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mt 7:20
    [Mt]  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Mt 7:21
    [Mt]  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord,
            shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;
            but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Mt 7:22
    [Mt]  Many will say to me in that day,
            Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?
            and in thy name have cast out devils?
            and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mt 7:23
    [Mt]  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you:
            depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Mt 7:24
    [Mt]  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine,
            and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man,
            which built his house upon a rock:
Mt 7:25
    [Mt]  and the rain descended, and the floods came,
            and the winds blew, and beat upon that house;
            and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
Mt 7:26
    [Mt]  And every one that heareth these sayings of mine,
            and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man,
            which built his house upon the sand:
Mt 7:27
    [Mt]  and the rain descended, and the floods came,
            and the winds blew, and beat upon that house;
            and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Mt 7:28
    [Mt]  And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings,
            the people were astonished at his doctrine:
Mt 7:29
    [Mt]  for he taught them as [one] having authority,
            and not as the scribes.
Mt 8:1
    [Mt]  When he was come down from the mountain,
            great multitudes followed him.

41. The Catch of Fish
    [Luke 5:1-11]

Lk 5:1
    [Lk]  And it came to pass, that,
            as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God,
            he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,
Lk 5:2
    [Lk]  and saw two ships standing by the lake:
            but the fishermen were gone out of them,
            and were washing [their] nets.
Lk 5:3
    [Lk]  And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's,
            and prayed him
            that he would thrust out a little from the land.
            And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.
Lk 5:4
    [Lk]  Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon,
            Launch out into the deep,
            and let down your nets for a draught.
Lk 5:5
    [Lk]  And Simon answering said unto him, Master,
            we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing:
            nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
Lk 5:6
    [Lk]  And when they had this done,
            they inclosed a great multitude of fishes:
            and their net brake.
Lk 5:7
    [Lk]  And they beckoned unto [their] partners,
            which were in the other ship,
            that they should come and help them. And they came,
            and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
Lk 5:8
    [Lk]  When Simon Peter saw [it], he fell down at Jesus' knees,
            saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
Lk 5:9
    [Lk]  For he was astonished, and all that were with him,
            at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:
Lk 5:10
    [Lk]  and so [was] also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee,
            which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon,
            Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.
Lk 5:11
    [Lk]  And when they had brought their ships to land,
            they forsook all, and followed him.

42. Jesus Cleanses a Leper
    [Matthew 8:2-4; Mark 1:40-45; & Luke 5:12-16]

Mt 8:2
Mk 1:40
Lk 5:12
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  it came to pass, when he was in a certain city,
    [Mt    Lk]  behold,
    [Mt Mk   ]  there came
    [   Mk   ]  to him
    [Mt Mk Lk]  a
    [      Lk]  man full of
    [Mt Mk Lk]  lepr
    [      Lk]  -osy, who seeing Jesus
    [   Mk   ]  kneeled down to him,
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  fell on [his] face,
    [Mt      ]  and worshipped him,
    [   Mk Lk]  and besought him,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  saying
    [   Mk   ]  unto him,
    [Mt    Lk]  Lord,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
Mt 8:3
Mk 1:41
Lk 5:13
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  Jesus,
    [   Mk   ]  moved with compassion,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  put forth [his] hand, and touched him,
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  saith
    [   Mk   ]  unto him,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  I will; be thou clean.
Mk 1:42
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk   ]  as soon as he had spoken,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  immediately
    [Mt      ]  his
    [Mt Mk Lk]  leprosy
    [   Mk Lk]  departed from him,
    [   Mk   ]  and he
    [Mt Mk   ]  was cleansed.
Mt 8:4
Mk 1:43
Lk 5:14
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt      ]  Jesus
    [   Mk   ]  straitly
    [   Mk Lk]  charged him,
    [   Mk   ]  and forthwith sent him away;
Mk 1:44
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [Mt Mk   ]  saith unto him, See thou
    [Mt Mk Lk]  tell no man
    [   Mk   ]  any thing:
    [Mt Mk Lk]  but go,
    [      Lk]  and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  shew thyself to the priest, and offer
    [   Mk Lk]  for thy cleansing
    [Mt Mk   ]  the
    [Mt      ]  gift
    [Mt Mk Lk]  which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
Mk 1:45
Lk 5:15
    [   Mk Lk]  But
    [   Mk   ]  he went out, and began to publish [it]
    [      Lk]  so
    [   Mk Lk]  much
    [      Lk]  the more,
    [   Mk   ]  and to blaze abroad the matter;
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  there went a fame abroad of him,
    [   Mk   ]  insomuch that Jesus could no more openly
                  enter into the city, but was without in desert places:
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [      Lk]  great multitudes
    [   Mk Lk]  came
    [      Lk]  together
    [   Mk   ]  to him from every quarter
    [      Lk]  to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.
Lk 5:16
    [      Lk]  And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.

    [At this point Matthew jumps to Plate G. But Luke 7:1 reveals
      that the events which begin Plate G took place directly after
      the events which close Plate F. Hence I follow Mark and Luke at
      this point.]

Plate D

43. Jesus Forgives a Paralytic's Sins
    [Matthew 9:1b-8 (and came into...); Mark 2:1-12; & Luke 5:17-26]

Mt 9:1b
Mk 2:1
    [Mt Mk   ]  And
    [   Mk   ]  again he
    [Mt Mk   ]  came into
    [Mt      ]  his own city,
    [   Mk   ]  Capernaum, after [some] days;
                  and it was noised that he was in the house.
Mk 2:2
    [   Mk   ]  And straightway many were gathered together,
                  insomuch that there was no room to receive [them],
                  no, not so much as about the door:
                  and he preached the word unto them.
Lk 5:17
    [      Lk]  And it came to pass on a certain day,
                  as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees
                  and doctors of the law sitting by,
                  which were come out of every town of Galilee,
                  and Judaea, and Jerusalem:
                  and the power of the Lord was [present] to heal them.
Mt 9:2
Mk 2:3
Lk 5:18
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And,
    [Mt    Lk]  behold,
    [      Lk]  men
    [   Mk   ]  come
    [Mt Mk   ]  unto him,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  bringing a
    [      Lk]  man
    [Mt Mk Lk]  sick of the palsy,
    [Mt      ]  lying
    [Mt    Lk]  on a bed,
    [   Mk   ]  which was borne of four:
    [      Lk]  and they sought [means] to bring him in,
                  and to lay [him] before him.
Mk 2:4
Lk 5:19
    [   Mk Lk]  And when they could not
    [      Lk]  find by what [way] they might
    [   Mk   ]  come nigh
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  bring him in
    [   Mk   ]  unto him
    [   Mk Lk]  because of the multitude, they
    [      Lk]  went upon the house top,
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk   ]  uncovered the roof where he was:
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [   Mk   ]  when they had broken [it] up, they
    [   Mk Lk]  let
    [   Mk   ]  the sick of the palsy
    [   Mk Lk]  down
    [      Lk]  through the tiling, with
    [   Mk Lk]  the bed
    [   Mk   ]  wherein
    [        ]  [he]
    [   Mk   ]  lay,
    [      Lk]  into the midst before Jesus.
Mk 2:5
Lk 5:20
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  Jesus
    [Mt Mk Lk]  seeing their faith, said unto
    [Mt Mk   ]  the sick of the palsy; Son,
    [      Lk]  man,
    [Mt      ]  be of good cheer;
    [Mt Mk Lk]  thy sins are forgiven thee.
Mt 9:3
Mk 2:6
Lk 5:21
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And,
    [Mt      ]  behold,
    [   Mk   ]  there were
    [Mt Mk   ]  certain of
    [Mt Mk Lk]  the scribes
    [      Lk]  and the Pharisees
    [   Mk   ]  sitting there; and
    [        ]  [they]
    [      Lk]  began
    [   Mk Lk]  reasoning
    [Mt Mk   ]  within their
    [   Mk   ]  hearts,
    [Mt    Lk]  saying,
    [      Lk]  Who is
Mk 2:7
    [Mt Mk Lk]  this
    [Mt Mk   ]  [man],
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk   ]  why doth
    [        ]  [he]
    [   Mk   ]  thus
    [Mt Mk Lk]  speak blasphemies?
    [   Mk Lk]  who can forgive sins, but God alone?
Mt 9:4
Mk 2:8
Lk 5:22
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk   ]  immediately
    [Mt Mk Lk]  when Jesus perceived
    [   Mk   ]  in his spirit that
    [Mt Mk Lk]  they
    [   Mk   ]  so
    [Mt Mk Lk]  reasoned
    [   Mk   ]  within themselves,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  he
    [      Lk]  answering
    [Mt Mk Lk]  said
    [   Mk Lk]  unto them,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  Why reason ye
    [   Mk   ]  these
    [Mt      ]  evil
    [   Mk   ]  things
    [Mt Mk Lk]  in your hearts?
Mt 9:5
    [Mt      ]  For
Mk 2:9
Lk 5:23
    [Mt Mk Lk]  whether is easier, to say
    [   Mk   ]  to the sick of the palsy,
    [      Lk]  Thy
    [Mt Mk Lk]  sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise,
    [   Mk   ]  and take up thy bed,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and walk?
Mt 9:6
Mk 2:10
Lk 5:24
    [Mt Mk Lk]  But that ye may know that the Son of man
                  hath power on earth to forgive sins,
    [Mt      ]  (then
    [Mt Mk Lk]  saith he to the sick of the palsy,)
Mk 2:11
    [   Mk Lk]  I say unto thee,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  Arise,
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
Mt 9:7
Mk 2:12
Lk 5:25
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk Lk]  immediately
    [Mt Mk Lk]  he arose
    [   Mk Lk]  before them
    [   Mk   ]  all,
    [      Lk]  and
    [   Mk Lk]  took up
    [   Mk   ]  the bed
    [      Lk]  whereon he lay,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and departed
    [Mt    Lk]  to his house,
    [      Lk]  glorifying God;
    [   Mk   ]  insomuch that
Mt 9:8
    [Mt      ]  when the multitudes saw [it],
Lk 5:26
    [Mt Mk Lk]  they were
    [   Mk Lk]  all
    [Mt Mk Lk]  amazed, and glorified God,
    [Mt      ]  which had given such power unto men;
    [      Lk]  and were filled with fear,
    [   Mk Lk]  saying,
    [      Lk]  We have seen strange things to day.
    [   Mk   ]  We never saw it on this fashion.

44. Jesus Calls Matthew
    [Matthew 9:9-13; Mark 2:13-17; & Luke 5:27-32]

Mk 2:13
Lk 5:27
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  after these things
    [   Mk Lk]  he went forth
    [   Mk   ]  again by the sea side;
                  and all the multitude resorted unto him,
                  and he taught them.
Mt 9:9
Mk 2:14
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  as
    [Mt      ]  Jesus
    [Mt Mk   ]  passed by
    [Mt      ]  from thence,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  he saw
    [Mt      ]  a man
    [Mt Mk Lk]  sitting at the receipt of custom,
    [      Lk]  a publican
    [Mt    Lk]  named
    [   Mk Lk]  Levi
    [Mt      ]  Matthew,
    [   Mk   ]  the [son] of Alphaeus:
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and he said unto him, Follow me.
Lk 5:28
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And he
    [      Lk]  left all,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  arose, and followed him.
Lk 5:29
    [      Lk]  And Levi made him a great feast in his own house.
Mt 9:10
Mk 2:15
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in
    [   Mk   ]  his
    [Mt Mk   ]  house,
    [Mt      ]  behold,
    [      Lk]  there was a great company of
    [Mt Mk   ]  many
    [Mt Mk Lk]  publicans and
    [      Lk]  of other
    [Mt Mk   ]  sinners
    [      Lk]  that
    [Mt      ]  came and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  sat down with
    [   Mk   ]  Jesus
    [Mt Mk   ]  and his disciples:
    [   Mk   ]  for there were many, and they followed him.
Mt 9:11
Mk 2:16
Lk 5:30
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  when
    [      Lk]  their
    [   Mk Lk]  scribes and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  Pharisees
    [Mt Mk   ]  saw
    [   Mk   ]  him eat with publicans and sinners,
    [Mt Mk   ]  they
    [      Lk]  murmured
    [Mt Mk Lk]  unto his disciples, saying, Why do
    [      Lk]  ye
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  your Master
    [Mt Mk Lk]  eat
    [   Mk Lk]  and drink
    [Mt Mk Lk]  with publicans and sinners?
Mt 9:12
Mk 2:17
Lk 5:31
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  when
    [Mt Mk Lk]  Jesus
    [Mt Mk   ]  heard [it], he
    [      Lk]  answering
    [Mt Mk Lk]  said unto them, They that are whole
                  have no need of a physician, but they that are sick.
Mt 9:13
    [Mt      ]  But go ye and learn what [that] meaneth,
                  I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for
Lk 5:32
    [Mt Mk Lk]  I came not to call the righteous,
                  but sinners to repentance.

45. The Question about Fasting
    [Matthew 9:14-17; Mark 2:18-22; & Luke 5:33-39]

Mk 2:18
    [   Mk   ]  And
Mt 9:14
    [Mt Mk   ]  the disciples of John
    [   Mk   ]  and of the Pharisees used to fast:
Lk 5:33
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [Mt      ]  then
    [   Mk Lk]  they

    [Mt Mk   ]  came
    [Mt      ]  to him,
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  said
    [   Mk Lk]  unto him,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  Why do
    [Mt      ]  we
    [   Mk Lk]  the disciples of John
    [Mt Mk Lk]  fast
    [Mt    Lk]  often,
    [      Lk]  and make prayers,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [      Lk]  likewise [the disciples]
    [   Mk Lk]  of
    [Mt Mk Lk]  the Pharisees; but thy
    [Mt Mk   ]  disciples fast not,
    [        ]  [but]
    [      Lk]  eat and drink?
Mt 9:15
Mk 2:19
Lk 5:34
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  Jesus
    [Mt Mk Lk]  said unto them, Can
    [      Lk]  ye make
    [Mt Mk Lk]  the children of the bridechamber
    [Mt      ]  mourn
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk Lk]  fast,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  while the bridegroom is with them?
    [   Mk   ]  as long as they have the bridegroom with them,
                  they cannot fast.
Mk 2:20
Lk 5:35
    [Mt Mk Lk]  But the days will come,
                  when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them,
                  and then shall they fast
    [   Mk Lk]  in those days.
Mt 9:16
Mk 2:21
Lk 5:36
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  he spake also a parable unto them;
    [Mt Mk Lk]  No man
    [   Mk   ]  seweth
    [Mt Mk Lk]  a piece
    [Mt Mk   ]  of cloth
    [      Lk]  of a
    [Mt Mk Lk]  new
    [      Lk]  garment
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt    Lk]  putteth
    [        ]  [it]
    [Mt Mk Lk]  on an old
    [Mt Mk   ]  garment:
    [Mt      ]  for
    [   Mk Lk]  else
    [      Lk]  both
    [   Mk Lk]  the new
    [   Mk   ]  piece
    [Mt Mk   ]  that filled it up taketh away from the
    [   Mk   ]  old
    [Mt      ]  garment,
    [Mt Mk   ]  and the
    [Mt Mk Lk]  rent
    [Mt Mk   ]  is
    [Mt Mk Lk]  made
    [Mt Mk   ]  worse,
    [      Lk]  and the piece that was [taken] out of the new
                  agreeth not with the old.
Mk 2:22
Lk 5:37
    [   Mk Lk]  And
Mt 9:17
    [Mt Mk Lk]  neither do
    [Mt      ]  men
    [Mt Mk Lk]  put new wine into old bottles: else
    [   Mk Lk]  the new wine will
    [Mt Mk Lk]  burst the bottles, and
    [Mt Mk   ]  the wine
    [Mt Mk Lk]  is spilled, and the bottles shall perish:
Lk 5:38
    [Mt Mk Lk]  but
    [Mt      ]  they
    [   Mk Lk]  must
    [Mt Mk Lk]  put new wine into new bottles;
    [Mt    Lk]  and both are preserved.
Lk 5:39
    [      Lk]  No man also having drunk old [wine]
                  straightway desireth new:
                  for he saith, The old is better.

    [At this point Mark and Luke jump to Plate F. But Matthew 9:18
      reveals that the events which begin Plate E took place directly
      after the events which close Plate D. Hence I follow Matthew at
      this point.]

Plate E

46. Jairus' Daughter Raised
    [Matthew 9:18-26; Mark 5:22-43; & Luke 8:41-56]

Mk 5:22
Lk 8:41
    [   Mk Lk]  And
Mt 9:18
    [Mt      ]  while he spake these things unto them,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  behold, there came
    [Mt    Lk]  a
    [Mt      ]  certain
    [      Lk]  man
    [   Mk Lk]  named Jairus,
    [      Lk]  and he was
    [   Mk   ]  one of the
    [Mt Mk Lk]  ruler-
    [   Mk   ]  s
    [   Mk Lk]  of the synagogue: and
    [   Mk   ]  when he saw him,
    [   Mk Lk]  he fell down at
    [      Lk]  Jesus'
    [   Mk Lk]  feet,
    [Mt      ]  and worshipped him,
Mk 5:23
    [   Mk Lk]  and besought him
    [   Mk   ]  greatly
    [      Lk]  that he would come into his house,
    [Mt Mk   ]  saying, My
    [   Mk   ]  little
    [Mt Mk   ]  daughter
    [Mt      ]  even now
    [   Mk   ]  lieth at the point of
    [Mt Mk   ]  death:
    [Mt      ]  but
    [Mt Mk   ]  come and lay thy hand-
    [   Mk   ]  s
    [Mt Mk   ]  on her,
    [   Mk   ]  that she may be healed;
    [Mt Mk   ]  and she shall live.
Lk 8:42
Mk 5:42b
    [   Mk Lk]  For
    [      Lk]  he had one only daughter,
    [   Mk   ]  (she was
    [      Lk]  about
    [   Mk Lk]  twelve years [of age],)
    [      Lk]  and she lay a dying.
Mt 9:19
Mk 5:24
    [Mt Mk   ]  And
    [Mt      ]  Jesus arose, and
    [Mt Mk   ]  went with him,
    [Mt      ]  and [so did] his disciples:
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [      Lk]  as he went
    [   Mk   ]  much
    [   Mk Lk]  people
    [   Mk   ]  followed him, and
    [   Mk Lk]  thronged him.
Mt 9:20
Mk 5:25
Lk 8:43
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And,
    [Mt      ]  behold,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  a
    [   Mk   ]  certain
    [Mt Mk Lk]  woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
Mk 5:26
    [   Mk   ]  and had suffered many things of many physicians, and
    [   Mk Lk]  had spent all her
    [      Lk]  living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
    [   Mk   ]  and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
Mk 5:27
    [   Mk   ]  when she had heard of Jesus,
Lk 8:44
    [Mt Mk Lk]  came
    [   Mk   ]  in the press
    [Mt Mk Lk]  behind, and touched
    [Mt    Lk]  the border of
    [Mt Mk Lk]  his garment.
Mt 9:21
Mk 5:28
    [Mt Mk   ]  For she said
    [Mt      ]  within herself,
    [Mt Mk   ]  If I may
    [Mt      ]  but
    [Mt Mk   ]  touch
    [   Mk   ]  but
    [Mt Mk   ]  his garment-
    [   Mk   ]  s,
    [Mt Mk   ]  I shall be whole.
Mk 5:29
    [   Mk Lk]  And straightway
    [   Mk   ]  the fountain
    [   Mk Lk]  of
    [   Mk   ]  her
    [   Mk Lk]  blood
    [   Mk   ]  was dried up,
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  her issue stanched;
    [   Mk   ]  and she felt in [her] body
                  that she was healed of that plague.
Mt 9:22
Mk 5:30
Lk 8:45
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And Jesus,
    [   Mk   ]  immediately knowing in himself
                  that virtue had gone out of him,
    [Mt Mk   ]  turned him about
    [   Mk   ]  in the press, and
    [   Mk Lk]  said, Who touched my
    [   Mk   ]  clothes?
Mk 5:31
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  when all denied,
    [   Mk   ]  his disciples,
    [      Lk]  Peter and they that were with him,
    [   Mk Lk]  said
    [   Mk   ]  unto him,
    [      Lk]  Master,
    [   Mk   ]  thou seest
    [   Mk Lk]  the multitude thronging thee
    [      Lk]  and pressing [thee],
    [   Mk Lk]  and sayest thou, Who touched me?
Lk 8:46
    [      Lk]  And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me:
                  for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.
Mk 5:32
    [   Mk   ]  And he looked round about
                  to see her that had done this thing.
Mk 5:33
Lk 8:47
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  when
    [   Mk Lk]  the woman
    [      Lk]  saw that she was not hid, she
    [   Mk Lk]  came
    [   Mk   ]  fearing and
    [   Mk Lk]  trembling,
    [   Mk   ]  knowing what was done in her,
    [   Mk Lk]  and fell down before him,
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [   Mk Lk]  told him
    [   Mk   ]  all the truth
    [      Lk]  before all the people,
    [        ]  [to wit],
    [      Lk]  for what cause she had touched him,
                  and how she was healed immediately.
Mk 5:34
Lk 8:48
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt      ]  when he saw her,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  he said
    [   Mk Lk]  unto her,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  Daughter,
    [Mt    Lk]  be of good comfort:
    [Mt Mk Lk]  thy faith hath made thee whole;
    [   Mk Lk]  go in peace,
    [   Mk   ]  and be whole of thy plague.
    [Mt      ]  And the woman was made whole from that hour.
Mk 5:35
Lk 8:49
    [   Mk Lk]  While he yet spake, there cometh
    [      Lk]  one
    [   Mk Lk]  from the ruler of the synagogue's [house], saying
    [      Lk]  to him,
    [   Mk Lk]  Thy daughter is dead;
    [      Lk]  trouble not
    [   Mk Lk]  the Master:
    [   Mk   ]  why troublest thou
    [        ]  [him]
    [   Mk   ]  any further?
Mk 5:36
Lk 8:50
    [   Mk Lk]  But
    [   Mk   ]  as soon
    [   Mk Lk]  as Jesus heard
    [   Mk   ]  the word that was spoken,
    [   Mk Lk]  he
    [      Lk]  answered
    [   Mk   ]  the ruler of the synagogue,
    [   Mk Lk]  saying
    [   Mk   ]  unto
    [      Lk]  him,
    [   Mk Lk]  Fear not: only believe,
    [      Lk]  and she shall be made whole.
Mt 9:23
Mk 5:38a
Lk 8:51
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt    Lk]  when
    [Mt      ]  Jesus
    [Mt Mk Lk]  came into the house
    [Mt Mk   ]  of the ruler
    [   Mk   ]  of the synagogue,
Mk 5:37
    [   Mk Lk]  he suffered no man to
    [   Mk   ]  follow him
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  go in,
    [   Mk Lk]  save Peter, and James, and John
    [   Mk   ]  the brother of James,
    [      Lk]  and the father and the mother of the maiden.
Mk 5:38b
    [Mt Mk   ]  And
    [        ]  [he]
    [Mt Mk   ]  saw
    [Mt      ]  the minstrels and the people making a
    [Mt Mk   ]  tumult:
Lk 8:52
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [      Lk]  all
    [   Mk Lk]  wept, and bewailed
    [      Lk]  her
    [   Mk   ]  greatly.
Mk 5:39
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk   ]  when he was come in,
Mt 9:24
    [Mt Mk Lk]  he saith
    [Mt Mk   ]  unto them,
    [   Mk   ]  Why make ye this ado, and weep?
    [Mt      ]  Give place;
    [      Lk]  weep not:
    [Mt      ]  for
    [Mt Mk   ]  the damsel
    [Mt Mk Lk]  is not dead, but sleepeth.
Mk 5:40
Lk 8:53
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And they laughed him to scorn,
    [      Lk]  knowing that she was dead.
Mt 9:25
Lk 8:54
    [Mt Mk Lk]  But when
    [   Mk Lk]  he had
    [Mt Mk Lk]  put forth
    [   Mk Lk]  all
    [Mt      ]  the people,
    [Mt Mk   ]  he
    [   Mk   ]  taketh the father and the mother of the damsel,
                  and them that were with him, and
    [Mt Mk   ]  entereth in
    [   Mk   ]  where the damsel was lying.
Mk 5:41
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk Lk]  he
    [Mt Mk Lk]  took
    [   Mk   ]  the damsel
    [Mt Mk Lk]  by the hand,
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [      Lk]  called
    [   Mk   ]  unto her,
    [   Mk Lk]  saying,
    [   Mk   ]  Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted,
    [   Mk Lk]  Maid,
    [   Mk   ]  I say unto thee,
    [   Mk Lk]  arise.
Lk 8:55a
    [      Lk]  And her spirit came again:
Mk 5:42a
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [   Mk Lk]  straightway
    [Mt Mk   ]  the damsel
    [Mt Mk Lk]  arose,
    [   Mk   ]  and walked.
Mk 5:42c
Lk 8:56
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  her parents
    [   Mk Lk]  were astonished
    [   Mk   ]  with a great astonishment.
Mk 5:43
    [   Mk Lk]  And he charged them
    [   Mk   ]  straitly
    [      Lk]  that they should tell no man what was done,
    [   Mk   ]  that no man should know it.
Lk 8:55b
    [   Mk Lk]  And he commanded
                  that something should be given her to eat.
Mt 9:26
    [Mt      ]  And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.

47. Jesus Heals Two Blind Men
    [Matthew 9:27-31]

Mt 9:27
    [Mt]  And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him,
            crying, and saying, [Thou] Son of David, have mercy on us.
Mt 9:28
    [Mt]  And when he was come into the house,
            the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them,
            Believe ye that I am able to do this?
            They said unto him, Yea, Lord.
Mt 9:29
    [Mt]  Then touched he their eyes, saying,
            According to your faith be it unto you.
Mt 9:30
    [Mt]  And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them,
            saying, See [that] no man know [it].
Mt 9:31
    [Mt]  But they, when they were departed,
            spread abroad his fame in all that country.

48. Jesus Heals a Mute
    [Matthew 9:32-34]

Mt 9:32
    [Mt]  As they went out, behold, they brought to him
            a dumb man possessed with a devil.
Mt 9:33
    [Mt]  And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake:
            and the multitudes marvelled, saying,
            It was never so seen in Israel.
Mt 9:34
    [Mt]  But the Pharisees said,
            He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils.

    [At this point Matthew and Luke jump to Plate L. But in Plate L
      Jesus sends forth the Twelve Apostles (Mark 6:7), who are not
      selected until Plate F (Luke 6:13). Mark jumps to Plate K, which
      records Jesus' final rejection in his hometown of Nazareth. But
      both Matthew and Mark place this event near the close of Jesus'
      Galilaean ministry. The best solution is to follow Mark and Luke
      in placing Plate F directly after Plate D, with Plate E inserted
      between them.]
