CHAPTER FOUR: THE GREAT GALILAEAN MINISTRY--
              PART TWO: THE YEAR OF OPPOSITION

Plate F

49. Jesus Heals a Man by a Pool
    [John 5:1-47; 7:1]

Jn 5:1
    [Jn]  After this there was a feast of the Jews*;
            and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
    [*Note: The Greek, literally translated, says, "THE feast of the
      Jews" (i.e. the Passover). Hence "the second sabbath after the
      first," mentioned in the next story (Luke 6:1), would be a week
      later.]
Jn 5:2
    [Jn]  Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep [market] a pool,
            which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda,
            having five porches.
Jn 5:3
    [Jn]  In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind,
            halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
Jn 5:4
    [Jn]  For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool,
            and troubled the water:
            whosoever then first after the troubling of the water
            stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
Jn 5:5
    [Jn]  And a certain man was there,
            which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
Jn 5:6
    [Jn]  When Jesus saw him lie,
            and knew that he had been now a long time [in that case],
            he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
Jn 5:7
    [Jn]  The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man,
            when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool:
            but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
Jn 5:8
    [Jn]  Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
Jn 5:9
    [Jn]  And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed,
            and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
Jn 5:10
    [Jn]  The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured,
            It is the sabbath day:
            it is not lawful for thee to carry [thy] bed.
Jn 5:11
    [Jn]  He answered them, He that made me whole,
            the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
Jn 5:12
    [Jn]  Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee,
            Take up thy bed, and walk?
Jn 5:13
    [Jn]  And he that was healed wist not who it was:
            for Jesus had conveyed himself away,
            a multitude being in [that] place.
Jn 5:14
    [Jn]  Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple,
            and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole:
            sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
Jn 5:15
    [Jn]  The man departed, and told the Jews
            that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
Jn 5:16
    [Jn]  And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus,
            and sought to slay him,
            because he had done these things on the sabbath day.
Jn 5:17
    [Jn]  But Jesus answered them,
            My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
Jn 5:18
    [Jn]  Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him,
            because he not only had broken the sabbath,
            but said also that God was his Father,
            making himself equal with God.
Jn 5:19
    [Jn]  Then answered Jesus and said unto them,
            Verily, verily, I say unto you,
            The Son can do nothing of himself,
            but what he seeth the Father do:
            for what things soever he doeth,
            these also doeth the Son likewise.
Jn 5:20
    [Jn]  For the Father loveth the Son,
            and sheweth him all things that himself doeth:
            and he will shew him greater works than these,
            that ye may marvel.
Jn 5:21
    [Jn]  For as the Father raiseth up the dead,
            and quickeneth [them];
            even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
Jn 5:22
    [Jn]  For the Father judgeth no man,
            but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
Jn 5:23
    [Jn]  that all [men] should honour the Son,
            even as they honour the Father.
            He that honoureth not the Son
            honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
Jn 5:24
    [Jn]  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word,
            and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life,
            and shall not come into condemnation;
            but is passed from death unto life.
Jn 5:25
    [Jn]  Verily, verily, I say unto you,
            The hour is coming, and now is,
            when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God:
            and they that hear shall live.
Jn 5:26
    [Jn]  For as the Father hath life in himself;
            so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
Jn 5:27
    [Jn]  and hath given him authority to execute judgment also,
            because he is the Son of man.
Jn 5:28
    [Jn]  Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which
            all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
Jn 5:29
    [Jn]  and shall come forth; they that have done good,
            unto the resurrection of life;
            and they that have done evil,
            unto the resurrection of damnation.
Jn 5:30
    [Jn]  I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge:
            and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will,
            but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
Jn 5:31
    [Jn]  If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
Jn 5:32
    [Jn]  There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know
            that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
Jn 5:33
    [Jn]  Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
Jn 5:34
    [Jn]  But I receive not testimony from man:
            but these things I say, that ye might be saved.
Jn 5:35
    [Jn]  He was a burning and a shining light:
            and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.
Jn 5:36
    [Jn]  But I have greater witness than [that] of John:
            for the works which the Father hath given me to finish,
            the same works that I do, bear witness of me,
            that the Father hath sent me.
Jn 5:37
    [Jn]  And the Father himself, which hath sent me,
            hath borne witness of me.
            Ye have neither heard his voice at any time,
            nor seen his shape.
Jn 5:38
    [Jn]  And ye have not his word abiding in you:
            for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
Jn 5:39
    [Jn]  Search the scriptures;
            for in them ye think ye have eternal life:
            and they are they which testify of me.
Jn 5:40
    [Jn]  And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
Jn 5:41
    [Jn]  I receive not honour from men.
Jn 5:42
    [Jn]  But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.
Jn 5:43
    [Jn]  I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not:
            if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
Jn 5:44
    [Jn]  How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another,
            and seek not the honour that [cometh] from God only?
Jn 5:45
    [Jn]  Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father:
            there is [one] that accuseth you,
            [even] Moses, in whom ye trust.
Jn 5:46
    [Jn]  For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me:
            for he wrote of me.
Jn 5:47
    [Jn]  But if ye believe not his writings,
            how shall ye believe my words?
Jn 7:1
    [Jn]  After these things Jesus walked in Galilee:
            for he would not walk in Jewry,
            because the Jews sought to kill him.
 

50. The Disciples Pick Grain on the Sabbath
    [Matthew 12:1-8; Mark 2:23-28; & Luke 6:1-5]

Mk 2:23
Lk 6:1
    [   Mk Lk]  And it came to pass
Mt 12:1
    [Mt      ]  at that time,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  on the
    [      Lk]  second
    [Mt Mk Lk]  sabbath
    [      Lk]  after the first,
    [   Mk Lk]  that
    [Mt      ]  Jesus
    [Mt Mk Lk]  went through the corn fields; and his disciples
    [Mt      ]  were an hungred, and
    [Mt Mk   ]  began,
    [   Mk   ]  as they went,
    [Mt Mk   ]  to
    [Mt Mk Lk]  pluck the ears of corn,
    [Mt    Lk]  and
    [Mt      ]  to
    [Mt    Lk]  eat,
    [      Lk]  rubbing [them] in [their] hands.
Mt 12:2
Mk 2:24
Lk 6:2
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt      ]  when
    [      Lk]  certain of
    [Mt Mk Lk]  the Pharisees
    [Mt      ]  saw [it], they
    [Mt Mk Lk]  said unto
    [      Lk]  them,
    [Mt Mk   ]  Behold,
    [   Mk Lk]  why
    [Mt Mk Lk]  dost
    [      Lk]  thou
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  thy disciples
    [Mt Mk Lk]  that which is not lawful
    [Mt    Lk]  to do
    [Mt Mk Lk]  on the sabbath day-
    [   Mk Lk]  s?
Mt 12:3
Mk 2:25
Lk 6:3
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  Jesus answering
    [Mt Mk Lk]  said unto them, Have ye not
    [   Mk   ]  ever
    [Mt Mk Lk]  read
    [      Lk]  so much as this,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  what David did, when he
    [   Mk   ]  had need, and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  was an hungred,
    [   Mk Lk]  he,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and they that were with him;
Mt 12:4
Mk 2:26
Lk 6:4
    [Mt Mk Lk]  how he entered into the house of God
    [   Mk   ]  in the days of Abiathar the high priest,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and did
    [      Lk]  take and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  eat the shewbread,
    [   Mk Lk]  and gave also to them that were with him;
    [Mt Mk Lk]  which
    [Mt      ]  was
    [Mt Mk Lk]  not lawful
    [Mt      ]  for him
    [Mt Mk Lk]  to eat,
    [Mt      ]  neither for them which were with him,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  but for the priests
    [Mt    Lk]  alone?
Mt 12:5
    [Mt      ]  Or have ye not read in the law,
                  how that on the sabbath days
                  the priests in the temple profane the sabbath,
                  and are blameless?
Mt 12:6
    [Mt      ]  But I say unto you,
                  That in this place is [one] greater than the temple.
Mt 12:7
    [Mt      ]  But if ye had known what [this] meaneth,
                  I will have mercy, and not sacrifice,
                  ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
Mk 2:27
Lk 6:5
    [   Mk Lk]  And he said unto them,
Mt 12:8
    [Mt      ]  For
    [   Mk   ]  the sabbath was made for man,
                  and not man for the sabbath:
Mk 2:28
    [   Mk   ]  therefore
    [Mt Mk Lk]  the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath.
 

51. Jesus Heals a Withered Hand on the Sabbath
    [Matthew 12:9-14; Mark 3:1-6; & Luke 6:6-11]

Mt 12:9
Mk 3:1
Lk 6:6
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  it came to pass also,
    [Mt      ]  when he was departed thence,
    [      Lk]  that
    [Mt Mk Lk]  he entered
    [   Mk   ]  again
    [Mt Mk Lk]  into
    [Mt      ]  their
    [Mt Mk Lk]  synagogue
    [      Lk]  on another sabbath, and taught:
Mt 12:10
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and,
    [Mt      ]  behold,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  there was a man
    [   Mk Lk]  there
    [Mt Mk Lk]  whose
    [      Lk]  right
    [Mt Mk Lk]  hand was withered.
Mk 3:2
Lk 6:7
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  the scribes and Pharisees
    [   Mk Lk]  watched him, whether he would heal
    [   Mk   ]  him
    [   Mk Lk]  on the sabbath day.
    [Mt      ]  And they asked him, saying,
                  Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days?
    [Mt Mk Lk]  that they might
    [      Lk]  find an
    [Mt Mk Lk]  accus-
    [      Lk]  ation against
    [Mt Mk Lk]  him.
Lk 6:8
    [      Lk]  But he knew their thoughts,
Mk 3:3
    [   Mk Lk]  and said to the man which had the withered hand,
                  Rise up,
    [      Lk]  and stand forth
    [   Mk Lk]  in the midst.
    [      Lk]  And he arose and stood forth.
Mk 3:4
    [   Mk   ]  And
Lk 6:9
    [      Lk]  then Jesus
    [   Mk Lk]  said unto them,
    [      Lk]  I will ask you one thing;
    [   Mk Lk]  Is it lawful on the sabbath days
                  to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to
    [   Mk   ]  kill
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  destroy [it]?
    [   Mk   ]  But they held their peace.
Mt 12:11
    [Mt      ]  And he said unto them,
                  What man shall there be among you,
                  that shall have one sheep,
                  and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day,
                  will he not lay hold on it, and lift [it] out?
Mt 12:12
    [Mt      ]  How much then is a man better than a sheep?
                  Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
Mk 3:5
Lk 6:10
    [   Mk Lk]  And
Mt 12:13
    [Mt      ]  then
    [   Mk Lk]  when he had looked round about on them
    [      Lk]  all
    [   Mk   ]  with anger, being grieved
                  for the hardness of their hearts,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  he saith unto the man,
                  Stretch forth thine hand. And he
    [      Lk]  did so,
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt Mk   ]  stretched [it] forth:
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [   Mk Lk]  his hand
    [Mt Mk Lk]  was restored whole as the other.
Mt 12:14
Mk 3:6
Lk 6:11
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  the Pharisees
    [      Lk]  were filled with madness,
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt Mk   ]  went out,
    [      Lk]  and communed one with another
                  what they might do to Jesus.
    [Mt Mk   ]  And
    [   Mk   ]  straightway
    [        ]  [they]
    [Mt Mk   ]  took counsel
    [   Mk   ]  with the Herodians
    [Mt Mk   ]  against him, how they might destroy him.
 

52. Jesus Withdraws to the Sea
    [Matthew 12:15-21 & Mark 3:7-12]

Mt 12:15
Mk 3:7
    [Mt Mk]  But
    [Mt   ]  when
    [Mt Mk]  Jesus
    [Mt   ]  knew [it], he
    [Mt Mk]  withdrew himself
    [   Mk]  with his disciples
    [Mt   ]  from thence
    [   Mk]  to the sea:
    [Mt Mk]  and great multitude-
    [Mt   ]  s
    [   Mk]  from Galilee
    [Mt Mk]  followed him,
    [   Mk]  and from Judaea,
Mk 3:8
    [   Mk]  and from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea,
               and [from] beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon,
               a great multitude, when they had heard
               what great things he did, came unto him.
Mk 3:9
    [   Mk]  And he spake to his disciples,
               that a small ship should wait on him
               because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.
Mk 3:10
    [   Mk]  For he had healed many;
               insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him,
               as many as had plagues.
Mk 3:11
    [   Mk]  And unclean spirits, when they saw him,
               fell down before him, and cried, saying,
               Thou art the Son of God.
Mk 3:12
    [Mt Mk]  And he
    [Mt   ]  healed them all;
Mt 12:16
    [Mt   ]  and
    [   Mk]  straitly
    [Mt Mk]  charged them that they should not make him known:
Mt 12:17
    [Mt   ]  that it might be fulfilled
               which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
Mt 12:18
    [Mt   ]  Behold my servant, whom I have chosen;
               my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased:
               I will put my spirit upon him,
               and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
Mt 12:19
    [Mt   ]  He shall not strive, nor cry;
               neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
Mt 12:20
    [Mt   ]  A bruised reed shall he not break,
               and smoking flax shall he not quench,
               till he send forth judgment unto victory.
Mt 12:21
    [Mt   ]  And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
 

53. The Twelve Apostles Chosen
    [Mark 3:13-19a (...also betrayed him:) & Luke 6:12-16]

Mk 3:13
Lk 6:12
    [Mk Lk]  And
    [   Lk]  it came to pass in those days, that
    [Mk Lk]  he went
    [Mk   ]  up
    [Mk Lk]  into a mountain
    [   Lk]  to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
Lk 6:13
    [Mk Lk]  And
    [   Lk]  when it was day, he
    [Mk Lk]  called [unto him]
    [Mk   ]  whom he would
    [     ]  [of]
    [   Lk]  his disciples:
    [Mk   ]  and they came unto him.
Mk 3:14
    [Mk Lk]  And
    [   Lk]  of them
    [Mk Lk]  he
    [   Lk]  chose
    [     ]  [and]
    [Mk   ]  ordained
    [Mk Lk]  twelve,
    [   Lk]  whom also he named apostles,
    [Mk   ]  that they should be with him,
               and that he might send them forth to preach,
Mk 3:15
    [Mk   ]  and to have power to heal sicknesses,
               and to cast out devils:
Mk 3:16
Lk 6:14
    [Mk Lk]  Simon,
    [   Lk]  (whom
    [Mk Lk]  he also
    [Mk   ]  sur-
    [Mk Lk]  named Peter,)
Mk 3:18a
    [Mk Lk]  and Andrew
    [   Lk]  his brother;
Mk 3:17
    [Mk   ]  and
    [Mk Lk]  James
    [Mk   ]  the [son] of Zebedee,
    [Mk Lk]  and John
    [Mk   ]  the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges,
               which is, The sons of thunder:
Mk 3:18b
    [Mk   ]  and
    [Mk Lk]  Philip and Bartholomew,
    [Mk   ]  and
Lk 6:15
    [Mk Lk]  Matthew and Thomas,
    [Mk   ]  and
    [Mk Lk]  James the [son] of Alphaeus, and Simon
    [Mk   ]  the Canaanite
    [   Lk]  called Zelotes,
Lk 6:16
    [Mk Lk]  and
    [   Lk]  Judas
    [Mk   ]  Thaddaeus
    [   Lk]  [the brother] of James,
Mk 3:19a
    [Mk Lk]  and Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed
    [Mk   ]  him.
 

54. The Sermon on the Plain
    [Luke 6:17-49]

Lk 6:17
    [Lk]  And he came down with them, and stood in the plain,
            and the company of his disciples,
            and a great multitude of people
            out of all Judaea and Jerusalem,
            and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon,
            which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;
Lk 6:18
    [Lk]  and they that were vexed with unclean spirits:
            and they were healed.
Lk 6:19
    [Lk]  And the whole multitude sought to touch him:
            for there went virtue out of him, and healed [them] all.
Lk 6:20
    [Lk]  And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said,
            Blessed [be ye] poor: for your's is the kingdom of God.
Lk 6:21
    [Lk]  Blessed [are ye] that hunger now: for ye shall be filled.
            Blessed [are ye] that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
Lk 6:22
    [Lk]  Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you,
            and when they shall separate you [from their company],
            and shall reproach [you], and cast out your name as evil,
            for the Son of man's sake.
Lk 6:23
    [Lk]  Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy:
            for, behold, your reward [is] great in heaven:
            for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
Lk 6:24
    [Lk]  But woe unto you that are rich!
            for ye have received your consolation.
Lk 6:25
    [Lk]  Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger.
            Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
Lk 6:26
    [Lk]  Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you!
            for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
Lk 6:27
    [Lk]  But I say unto you which hear,
            Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Lk 6:28
    [Lk]  bless them that curse you,
            and pray for them which despitefully use you.
Lk 6:29
    [Lk]  And unto him that smiteth thee on the [one] cheek
            offer also the other;
            and him that taketh away thy cloke
            forbid not [to take thy] coat also.
Lk 6:30
    [Lk]  Give to every man that asketh of thee;
            and of him that taketh away thy goods ask [them] not again.
Lk 6:31
    [Lk]  And as ye would that men should do to you,
            do ye also to them likewise.
Lk 6:32
    [Lk]  For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye?
            for sinners also love those that love them.
Lk 6:33
    [Lk]  And if ye do good to them which do good to you,
            what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
Lk 6:34
    [Lk]  And if ye lend [to them] of whom ye hope to receive,
            what thank have ye?
            for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
Lk 6:35
    [Lk]  But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend,
            hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great,
            and ye shall be the children of the Highest:
            for he is kind unto the unthankful and [to] the evil.
Lk 6:36
    [Lk]  Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
Lk 6:37
    [Lk]  Judge not, and ye shall not be judged:
            condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned:
            forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
Lk 6:38
    [Lk]  give, and it shall be given unto you;
            good measure, pressed down, and shaken together,
            and running over, shall men give into your bosom.
            For with the same measure that ye mete
            withal it shall be measured to you again.
Lk 6:39
    [Lk]  And he spake a parable unto them,
            Can the blind lead the blind?
            shall they not both fall into the ditch?
Lk 6:40
    [Lk]  The disciple is not above his master:
            but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.
Lk 6:41
    [Lk]  And why beholdest thou
            the mote that is in thy brother's eye,
            but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Lk 6:42
    [Lk]  Either how canst thou say to thy brother,
            Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye,
            when thou thyself beholdest not
            the beam that is in thine own eye?
            Thou hypocrite, cast out first
            the beam out of thine own eye,
            and then shalt thou see clearly
            to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.
Lk 6:43
    [Lk]  For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit;
            neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Lk 6:44
    [Lk]  For every tree is known by his own fruit.
            For of thorns men do not gather figs,
            nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
Lk 6:45
    [Lk]  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart
            bringeth forth that which is good;
            and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart
            bringeth forth that which is evil:
            for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
Lk 6:46
    [Lk]  And why call ye me, Lord, Lord,
            and do not the things which I say?
Lk 6:47
    [Lk]  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings,
            and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
Lk 6:48
    [Lk]  he is like a man which built an house,
            and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock:
            and when the flood arose,
            the stream beat vehemently upon that house,
            and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
Lk 6:49
    [Lk]  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man
            that without a foundation built an house upon the earth;
            against which the stream did beat vehemently,
            and immediately it fell;
            and the ruin of that house was great.

    [At this point Matthew jumps to Plate I. 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 Luke at this
      point.]

55. Jesus Heals a Centurion's Servant
    [Matthew 8:5-13 & Luke 7:1-10]

Mt 8:5a
Lk 7:1
    [Mt Lk]  And when
    [Mt   ]  Jesus
    [Mt Lk]  had
    [   Lk]  ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he
    [Mt Lk]  entered into Capernaum.
Lk 7:2
    [   Lk]  And
Mt 8:5c
    [Mt Lk]  a
    [   Lk]  certain
    [Mt Lk]  centurion-
    [   Lk]  's servant, who was dear unto him,
               was sick, and ready to die.
Lk 7:3
    [   Lk]  And when he heard of Jesus,
               he sent unto him the elders of the Jews,
    [Mt Lk]  beseeching him
    [   Lk]  that he would come and heal his servant,
Mt 8:6
    [Mt   ]  and saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home
               sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.
Lk 7:4
    [   Lk]  And when they
Mt 8:5b
    [Mt Lk]  came to
    [   Lk]  Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying,
               That he was worthy for whom he should do this:
Lk 7:5
    [   Lk]  for he loveth our nation,
               and he hath built us a synagogue.
Mt 8:7
    [Mt   ]  And Jesus saith unto
    [     ]  [them],
    [Mt   ]  I will come and heal him.
Lk 7:6
    [   Lk]  Then Jesus went with them.
Mt 8:8
    [Mt Lk]  And
    [   Lk]  when he was now not far from the house,
    [Mt Lk]  the centurion
    [   Lk]  sent friends to him,
    [Mt   ]  answering and
    [Mt Lk]  saying
    [   Lk]  unto him,
    [Mt Lk]  Lord,
    [   Lk]  trouble not thyself: for
    [Mt Lk]  I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof:
Lk 7:7
    [   Lk]  wherefore neither thought I myself worthy
               to come unto thee:
    [Mt Lk]  but say the word
    [Mt   ]  only,
    [Mt Lk]  and my servant shall be healed.
Mt 8:9
Lk 7:8
    [Mt Lk]  For I also am a man
    [   Lk]  set
    [Mt Lk]  under authority, having soldiers under me;
               and I say to this [man], Go, and he goeth;
               and to another, Come, and he cometh;
               and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth [it].
Mt 8:10
Lk 7:9
    [Mt Lk]  When Jesus heard
    [   Lk]  these things,
    [Mt Lk]  he marvelled
    [   Lk]  at him, and turned him about,
    [Mt Lk]  and said unto
    [   Lk]  the people
    [Mt Lk]  that followed
    [   Lk]  him,
    [Mt   ]  Verily,
    [Mt Lk]  I say unto you, I have not found so great faith,
               no, not in Israel.
Mt 8:11
    [Mt   ]  And I say unto you,
               That many shall come from the east and west,
               and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob,
               in the kingdom of heaven.
Mt 8:12
    [Mt   ]  But the children of the kingdom
               shall be cast out into outer darkness:
               there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mt 8:13
    [Mt   ]  And Jesus said unto the centurion-
    [     ]  [s friends],
    [Mt   ]  Go, and
    [     ]  [tell him],
    [Mt   ]  As thou hast believed, [so] be it done unto thee.
Lk 7:10
    [Mt Lk]  And
    [   Lk]  they that were sent, returning to the house
    [Mt   ]  in the selfsame hour,
    [   Lk]  found
    [Mt   ]  his
    [Mt Lk]  servant
    [   Lk]  that had been sick
    [Mt   ]  was made
    [Mt Lk]  whole.
 

56. Jesus Raises a Widow's Son
    [Luke 7:11-17]

Lk 7:11
    [Lk]  And it came to pass the day after,
            that he went into a city called Nain;
            and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.
Lk 7:12
    [Lk]  Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city,
            behold, there was a dead man carried out,
            the only son of his mother, and she was a widow:
            and much people of the city was with her.
Lk 7:13
    [Lk]  And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her,
            and said unto her, Weep not.
Lk 7:14
    [Lk]  And he came and touched the bier:
            and they that bare [him] stood still.
            And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.
Lk 7:15
    [Lk]  And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak.
            And he delivered him to his mother.
Lk 7:16
    [Lk]  And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God,
            saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us;
            and, That God hath visited his people.
Lk 7:17
    [Lk]  And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea,
            and throughout all the region round about.

    [At this point Matthew jumps to Plate B. But Luke 7:18 reveals
      that the events which begin Plate H took place as a direct result
      of the events which close Plate G. Hence I follow Luke at this
      point.]

57. John the Baptist's Inquiry
    [Matthew 11:2-19 & Luke 7:18-35]

Lk 7:18
    [   Lk]  And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things.
Mt 11:2
Lk 7:19
    [Mt Lk]  And
    [Mt   ]  when
    [Mt Lk]  John
    [Mt   ]  had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he
    [   Lk]  called [unto him]
    [Mt Lk]  two of his disciples,
    [     ]  [and]
    [Mt Lk]  sent
    [   Lk]  [them] to Jesus,
Mt 11:3
    [Mt Lk]  saying
    [Mt   ]  unto him,
    [Mt Lk]  Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
Lk 7:20
    [   Lk]  When the men were come unto him, they said,
               John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying,
               Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
Lk 7:21
    [   Lk]  And in that same hour he cured many
               of [their] infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits;
               and unto many [that were] blind he gave sight.
Mt 11:4
Lk 7:22
    [Mt Lk]  Then Jesus answered and said unto them,
               Go and tell John those things which ye
    [   Lk]  have
    [Mt Lk]  see-
    [   Lk]  n
    [Mt Lk]  and hear-
    [   Lk]  d; how that
Mt 11:5
    [Mt Lk]  the blind receive their sight,
    [Mt   ]  and
    [Mt Lk]  the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed,
    [Mt   ]  and
    [Mt Lk]  the deaf hear, the dead are raised up,
    [Mt   ]  and
    [Mt Lk]  the poor have the gospel preached to them.
Mt 11:6
Lk 7:23
    [Mt Lk]  And blessed is [he],
               whosoever shall not be offended in me.
Mt 11:7
Lk 7:24
    [Mt Lk]  And when
    [   Lk]  the messengers of John were
    [Mt Lk]  departed,
    [Mt   ]  Jesus
    [Mt Lk]  began to say unto the multitudes concerning John,
               What went ye out into the wilderness for to see?
               A reed shaken with the wind?
Mt 11:8
Lk 7:25
    [Mt Lk]  But what went ye out for to see?
               A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they that wear
    [Mt   ]  soft
    [     ]  [and]
    [   Lk]  gorgeous apparel, and live delicately,
    [Mt Lk]  are in kings' houses.
Mt 11:9
Lk 7:26
    [Mt Lk]  But what went ye out for to see? A prophet?
               Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.
Mt 11:10
    [Mt   ]  For
Lk 7:27
    [Mt Lk]  this is [he], of whom it is written,
               Behold, I send my messenger before thy face,
               which shall prepare thy way before thee.
Lk 7:28
    [   Lk]  For
Mt 11:11
    [Mt   ]  verily
    [Mt Lk]  I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there
    [Mt   ]  hath
    [Mt Lk]  not
    [Mt   ]  risen
    [Mt Lk]  a greater
    [   Lk]  prophet
    [Mt Lk]  than John the Baptist:
               but he that is least in the kingdom of
    [   Lk]  God
    [     ]  [and]
    [Mt   ]  heaven
    [Mt Lk]  is greater than he.
Mt 11:12
    [Mt   ]  And from the days of John the Baptist until now
               the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence,
               and the violent take it by force.
Mt 11:13
    [Mt   ]  For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
Mt 11:14
    [Mt   ]  And if ye will receive [it],
               this is Elias, which was for to come.
Mt 11:15
    [Mt   ]  He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Lk 7:29
    [   Lk]  And all the people that heard [him], and the publicans,
               justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John.
Lk 7:30
    [   Lk]  But the Pharisees and lawyers
               rejected the counsel of God against themselves,
               being not baptized of him.
Lk 7:31
    [   Lk]  And the Lord said,
Mt 11:16
    [Mt   ]  But
    [Mt Lk]  whereunto
    [   Lk]  then
    [Mt Lk]  shall I liken
    [   Lk]  the men of
    [Mt Lk]  this generation?
    [   Lk]  and to what are they like?
Lk 7:32
    [   Lk]  They are
    [Mt Lk]  like unto children sitting in the marketplace-
    [Mt   ]  s,
    [Mt Lk]  and calling
    [   Lk]  one to another
    [Mt   ]  unto their fellows,
Mt 11:17
    [Mt Lk]  and saying,
               We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced;
               we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.
Mt 11:18
Lk 7:33
    [Mt Lk]  For John
    [   Lk]  the Baptist
    [Mt Lk]  came neither eating
    [   Lk]  bread
    [Mt Lk]  nor drinking
    [   Lk]  wine;
    [Mt Lk]  and
    [   Lk]  ye
    [Mt Lk]  say, He hath a devil.
Mt 11:19
Lk 7:34
    [Mt Lk]  The Son of man came eating and drinking; and
    [   Lk]  ye
    [Mt Lk]  say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber,
               a friend of publicans and sinners!
Lk 7:35
    [Mt Lk]   But wisdom is justified of
    [   Lk]   all
    [Mt Lk]   her children.
 

58. Woe to the Impenitent Cities
    [Matthew 11:20-24]

Mt 11:20
    [Mt]  Then began he to upbraid the cities
            wherein most of his mighty works were done,
            because they repented not:
Mt 11:21
    [Mt]  Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida!
            for if the mighty works, which were done in you,
            had been done in Tyre and Sidon,
            they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
Mt 11:22
    [Mt]  But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable
            for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
Mt 11:23
    [Mt]  And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven,
            shalt be brought down to hell:
            for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee,
            had been done in Sodom,
            it would have remained until this day.
Mt 11:24
    [Mt]  But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable
            for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
 

59. Come unto Me
    [Matthew 11:25-30]

Mt 11:25
    [Mt]  At that time Jesus answered and said,
            I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
            because thou hast hid these things
            from the wise and prudent,
            and hast revealed them unto babes.
Mt 11:26
    [Mt]  Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
Mt 11:27
    [Mt]  All things are delivered unto me of my Father:
            and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father;
            neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son,
            and [he] to whomsoever the Son will reveal [him].
Mt 11:28
    [Mt]  Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden,
            and I will give you rest.
Mt 11:29
    [Mt]  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
            for I am meek and lowly in heart:
            and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Mt 11:30
    [Mt]  For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.
 

60. A Sinful Woman Anoints Jesus' Feet
    [Luke 7:36-50]

Lk 7:36
    [Lk]  And one of the Pharisees desired him
            that he would eat with him.
            And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.
Lk 7:37
    [Lk]  And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner,
            when she knew that [Jesus] sat at meat
            in the Pharisee's house,
            brought an alabaster box of ointment,
Lk 7:38
    [Lk]  and stood at his feet behind [him] weeping,
            and began to wash his feet with tears,
            and did wipe [them] with the hairs of her head,
            and kissed his feet, and anointed [them] with the ointment.
Lk 7:39
    [Lk]  Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw [it],
            he spake within himself, saying,
            This man, if he were a prophet, would have known
            who and what manner of woman [this is] that toucheth him:
            for she is a sinner.
Lk 7:40
    [Lk]  And Jesus answering said unto him,
            Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee.
            And he saith, Master, say on.
Lk 7:41
    [Lk]  There was a certain creditor which had two debtors:
            the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
Lk 7:42
    [Lk]  And when they had nothing to pay,
            he frankly forgave them both.
            Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
Lk 7:43
    [Lk]  Simon answered and said,
            I suppose that [he], to whom he forgave most.
            And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
Lk 7:44
    [Lk]  And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon,
            Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house,
            thou gavest me no water for my feet:
            but she hath washed my feet with tears,
            and wiped [them] with the hairs of her head.
Lk 7:45
    [Lk]  Thou gavest me no kiss:
            but this woman since the time I came in
            hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
Lk 7:46
    [Lk]  My head with oil thou didst not anoint:
            but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
Lk 7:47
    [Lk]  Wherefore I say unto thee,
           Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much:
            but to whom little is forgiven, [the same] loveth little.
Lk 7:48
    [Lk]  And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
Lk 7:49
    [Lk]  And they that sat at meat with him
            began to say within themselves,
            Who is this that forgiveth sins also?
Lk 7:50
    [Lk]  And he said to the woman,
            Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

      7:1 links Plate F with Plate G, I choose to follow Luke in going
      directly to Plate I.]

61. Jesus' Second Circuit through Galilee
    [Luke 8:1-3]

Lk 8:1
    [Lk]  And it came to pass afterward,
            that he went throughout every city and village,
            preaching and shewing the glad tidings
            of the kingdom of God: and the twelve [were] with him,
Lk 8:2
    [Lk]  and certain women, which had been healed
            of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene,
            out of whom went seven devils,
Lk 8:3
    [Lk]  and Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward,
            and Susanna, and many others,
            which ministered unto him of their substance.
 

62. Jesus Accused of Using Satanic Power
    [Matthew 12:22-37 & Mark 3:19b-30 (and they went...)]

Mk 3:19b
    [   Mk]  And they went into an house.
Mk 3:20
    [   Mk]  And the multitude cometh together again,
               so that they could not so much as eat bread.
Mk 3:21
    [   Mk]  And when his friends heard [of it],
               they went out to lay hold on him:
               for they said, He is beside himself.
Mt 12:22
    [Mt   ]  Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil,
               blind, and dumb: and he healed him,
               insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.
Mt 12:23
    [Mt   ]  And all the people were amazed,
               and said, Is not this the son of David?
Mt 12:24
    [Mt   ]  But when the Pharisees heard [it], they
Mk 3:22
    [   Mk]  and the scribes which came down from Jerusalem
    [Mt Mk]  said,
    [   Mk]  He hath Beelzebub, and
    [Mt Mk]  he doth
    [Mt   ]  not
    [Mt Mk]  cast out devils,
    [Mt   ]  but
    [Mt Mk]  by
    [Mt   ]  Beelzebub
    [Mt Mk]  the prince of the devils.
Mt 12:25
Mk 3:23
    [Mt Mk]  And
    [Mt   ]  Jesus knew their thoughts,
    [     ]  [and]
    [   Mk]  called them [unto him],
    [Mt Mk]  and said unto them
    [   Mk]  in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
Mk 3:24
    [   Mk]  And if
    [Mt Mk]  a kingdom
    [   Mk]  be
    [Mt Mk]  divided against itself,
    [   Mk]  that kingdom cannot stand,
    [     ]  [but]
    [Mt   ]  is brought to desolation.
Mk 3:25
    [Mt Mk]  And
    [   Mk]  if
    [Mt Mk]  a
    [Mt   ]  city or
    [Mt Mk]  house
    [   Mk]  be
    [Mt Mk]  divided against itself,
    [   Mk]  that
    [     ]  [city or]
    [   Mk]  house
    [Mt Mk]  shall not
    [   Mk]  be able to
    [Mt Mk]  stand.
Mt 12:26
Mk 3:26
    [Mt Mk]  And if Satan
    [Mt   ]  cast out Satan, he
    [   Mk]  hath risen up
    [Mt Mk]  against himself,
    [   Mk]  and
    [Mt Mk]  is divided,
    [Mt   ]  how shall then his kingdom stand?
    [     ]  [yea,]
    [   Mk]  he cannot stand, but hath an end.
Mt 12:27
    [Mt   ]  And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils,
               by whom do your children cast [them] out?
               therefore they shall be your judges.
Mt 12:28
    [Mt   ]  But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God,
               then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
Mt 12:29
    [Mt   ]  Or else how can one
Mk 3:27
    [Mt Mk]  enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods?
    [   Mk]  No man can
    [Mt Mk]  except he first bind the strong man;
               and then he will spoil his house.
Mt 12:30
    [Mt   ]  He that is not with me is against me;
               and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
Mt 12:31
    [Mt   ]  Wherefore
Mk 3:28
    [   Mk]  verily
    [Mt Mk]  I say unto you, All sin-
    [   Mk]  s
    [Mt Mk]  shall be forgiven unto
    [   Mk]  the sons of
    [Mt Mk]  men, and blasphemi-
    [   Mk]  es wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
Mk 3:29
    [Mt Mk]  but
    [Mt   ]  the
    [Mt Mk]  blasphemy
    [Mt   ]  [against] the [Holy] Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
Mt 12:32
    [Mt   ]  And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man,
               it shall be forgiven him: but
    [Mt Mk]  whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost,
    [Mt   ]  it
    [Mt Mk]  shall not
    [   Mk]  ever
    [Mt Mk]  be forgiven
    [Mt   ]  him, neither in this world,
               neither in the [world] to come:
    [   Mk]  but
    [     ]  [he]
    [   Mk]  is in danger of eternal damnation.
Mt 12:33
    [Mt   ]  Either make the tree good, and his fruit good;
               or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt:
               for the tree is known by [his] fruit.
Mt 12:34
    [Mt   ]  O generation of vipers,
               how can ye, being evil, speak good things?
               for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Mt 12:35
    [Mt   ]  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart
               bringeth forth good things:
               and an evil man out of the evil treasure
               bringeth forth evil things.
Mt 12:36
    [Mt   ]  But I say unto you,
               That every idle word that men shall speak,
               they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
Mt 12:37
    [Mt   ]  For by thy words thou shalt be justified,
               and by thy words thou shalt be condemned:
Mk 3:30
    [   Mk]  because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
 

63. The Pharisees Demand a Sign
    [Matthew 12:38-45]

Mt 12:38
    [Mt]  Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered,
            saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
Mt 12:39
    [Mt]  But he answered and said unto them,
            An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign;
            and there shall no sign be given to it,
            but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
Mt 12:40
    [Mt]  for as Jonas was three days and three nights
            in the whale's belly;
            so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights
            in the heart of the earth.
Mt 12:41
    [Mt]  The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment
            with this generation, and shall condemn it:
            because they repented at the preaching of Jonas;
            and, behold, a greater than Jonas [is] here.
Mt 12:42
    [Mt]  The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment
            with this generation, and shall condemn it:
            for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth
            to hear the wisdom of Solomon;
            and, behold, a greater than Solomon [is] here.
Mt 12:43
    [Mt]  When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man,
            he walketh through dry places,
            seeking rest, and findeth none.
Mt 12:44
    [Mt]  Then he saith, I will return into my house
            from whence I came out; and when he is come,
            he findeth [it] empty, swept, and garnished.
Mt 12:45
    [Mt]  Then goeth he, and taketh with himself
            seven other spirits more wicked than himself,
            and they enter in and dwell there:
            and the last [state] of that man is worse than the first.
            Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
 

64. Jesus' Mother & Brothers
    [Matthew 12:46-50; Mark 3:31-35; & Luke 8:19-21]

Mt 12:46
Mk 3:31a
Lk 8:19
    [Mt Mk Lk]  Then
    [Mt      ]  while he yet talked to the people, behold,
    [   Mk   ]  his
    [Mt Mk Lk]  mother and
    [Mt    Lk]  his
    [Mt Mk Lk]  brethren
    [   Mk Lk]  came
    [      Lk]  to him,
Mk 3:32a
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [      Lk]  could not come at him for
    [   Mk Lk]  the multitude
    [        ]  [that]
    [   Mk   ]  sat about him.
Mk 3:31b
    [   Mk   ]  And,
    [Mt Mk   ]  standing without,
    [        ]  [they]
    [   Mk   ]  sent unto him, calling him,
    [Mt      ]  desiring to speak with him.
Mt 12:47
Mk 3:32b
Lk 8:20
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt      ]  one
    [        ]  [of]
    [   Mk   ]  them
    [      Lk]  told
    [Mt Mk Lk]  him, saying,
    [Mt Mk   ]  Behold,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  thy mother and thy brethren
    [Mt    Lk]  stand
    [Mt Mk Lk]  without, desiring
    [      Lk]  to see
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  to speak with
    [Mt Mk Lk]  thee.
Mt 12:48
Mk 3:33
Lk 8:21
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And he answered
    [Mt    Lk]  and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  said
    [Mt    Lk]  unto
    [Mt      ]  him that told him,
    [Mt Mk   ]  Who is my mother? and
    [Mt      ]  who are
    [Mt Mk   ]  my brethren?
Mt 12:49
Mk 3:34
    [Mt Mk   ]  And he
    [   Mk   ]  looked round about on them which sat about him,
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  stretched forth his hand toward his disciples,
    [Mt Mk   ]  and said, Behold
    [Mt Mk Lk]  my mother and my brethren
    [      Lk]  are these which hear the word of God, and do it.
Mt 12:50
Mk 3:35
    [Mt Mk   ]  For whosoever shall do the will of
    [   Mk   ]  God
    [Mt      ]  my Father which is in heaven,
    [Mt Mk   ]  the same is my brother, and
    [   Mk   ]  my
    [Mt Mk   ]  sister, and mother.
 

65. Jesus Teaches in Parables
    [Matthew 13:1-53; Mark 4:1-34; & Luke 8:4-18]

Mt 13:1
    [Mt      ]  The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat,
Mk 4:1
    [   Mk   ]  and began again to teach
    [Mt Mk   ]  by the sea side.
Mt 13:2
Lk 8:4
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And great multitude-
    [Mt      ]  s
    [Mt Mk Lk]  were gathered together,
    [      Lk]  and were come
    [Mt Mk Lk]  unto him
    [      Lk]  out of every city,
    [Mt Mk   ]  so that he entered into a ship, and sat
    [   Mk   ]  in the sea;
    [Mt Mk   ]  and the whole multitude
    [Mt      ]  stood
    [   Mk   ]  by the sea
    [Mt Mk   ]  on the land.
Mt 13:3
Mk 4:2
    [Mt Mk   ]  And
    [Mt Mk Lk]  he
    [Mt    Lk]  spake
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk   ]  taught them
    [Mt Mk   ]  many things
    [Mt Mk Lk]  by parable-
    [Mt Mk   ]  s,
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [Mt Mk   ]  said unto them
    [   Mk   ]  in his doctrine,
Mk 4:3
    [   Mk   ]  Hearken;
    [Mt Mk   ]  Behold,
Lk 8:5
    [Mt Mk Lk]  a sower went out to sow
    [      Lk]  his seed:
Mt 13:4
Mk 4:4
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [   Mk   ]  it came to pass,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  as he sowed, some fell by the way side;
    [      Lk]  and it was trodden down,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and the fowls
    [   Mk Lk]  of the air
    [Mt Mk   ]  came and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  devoured
    [   Mk Lk]  it.
Mt 13:5
Mk 4:5
Lk 8:6
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And some fell upon rock-
    [Mt Mk   ]  y place-
    [Mt      ]  s,
    [Mt Mk   ]  where
    [   Mk   ]  it
    [Mt Mk   ]  had not much earth;
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [Mt Mk   ]  immediately
    [   Mk Lk]  it
    [Mt Mk Lk]  sprang up,
    [Mt Mk   ]  because
    [   Mk   ]  it
    [Mt Mk   ]  had no depth of earth:
Mt 13:6
Mk 4:6
    [Mt Mk   ]  but when the sun was up,
    [   Mk   ]  it
    [Mt Mk   ]  was scorched; and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  because
    [   Mk Lk]  it
    [Mt Mk Lk]  had no
    [Mt Mk   ]  root
    [        ]  [or]
    [      Lk]  moisture,
    [   Mk Lk]  it
    [Mt Mk Lk]  withered away.
Mt 13:7
Mk 4:7
Lk 8:7
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up
    [      Lk]  with it,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and choked
    [   Mk Lk]  it,
    [   Mk   ]  and it yielded no fruit.
Mt 13:8
Mk 4:8
Lk 8:8
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And other fell on good ground,
    [      Lk]  and sprang up,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [Mt Mk   ]  did yield
    [Mt Mk Lk]  fruit
    [   Mk   ]  that sprang up and increased; and
    [   Mk Lk]  brought forth,
    [Mt Mk   ]  some thirty,
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [Mt Mk   ]  some sixty,
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [Mt Mk   ]  some
    [Mt Mk Lk]  an hundred-
    [      Lk]  fold.
Mk 4:9
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  when he had said these things,
    [   Mk Lk]  he
    [      Lk]  cried
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk   ]  said unto them,
Mt 13:9
    [Mt Mk Lk]  He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Mt 13:10
Mk 4:10
Lk 8:9
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk   ]  when he was alone, they that were about him with
    [      Lk]  his
    [   Mk   ]  twelve
    [Mt    Lk]  disciples
    [Mt      ]  came, and
    [   Mk Lk]  asked
    [Mt Mk Lk]  him,
    [Mt    Lk]  saying,
    [      Lk]  What might this
    [   Mk Lk]  parable
    [      Lk]  be?
    [        ]  [And,]
    [Mt      ]  Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
Mt 13:11
Mk 4:11
Lk 8:10
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And he
    [Mt      ]  answered and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  said
    [Mt Mk   ]  unto them,
    [Mt      ]  Because
    [Mt Mk Lk]  unto you it is given to know the mysteri-
    [Mt    Lk]  es
    [Mt Mk Lk]  of the kingdom of
    [   Mk Lk]  God
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  heaven:
    [Mt Mk Lk]  but to
    [      Lk]  others
    [   Mk   ]  that are without
    [Mt      ]  it is not given.
Mt 13:13
    [Mt      ]  Therefore
    [   Mk   ]  all [these] things
    [Mt      ]  speak I to them
    [Mt Mk Lk]  in parables:
Mk 4:12
    [   Mk Lk]  that
    [Mt Mk Lk]  seeing they
    [   Mk Lk]  might
    [Mt    Lk]  not see;
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and hearing they
    [   Mk Lk]  might
    [Mt    Lk]  not
    [Mt      ]  hear, nor
    [Mt    Lk]  understand.
Mt 13:14
    [Mt      ]  And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias,
                  which saith, By hearing ye shall
    [Mt Mk   ]  hear, and
    [Mt      ]  shall
    [Mt Mk   ]  not understand;
    [Mt      ]  and seeing ye shall
    [Mt Mk   ]  see, and
    [Mt      ]  shall
    [Mt Mk   ]  not perceive:
Mt 13:15
    [Mt      ]  for this people's heart is waxed gross,
                  and [their] ears are dull of hearing,
                  and their eyes they have closed;
    [Mt Mk   ]  lest at any time they
    [Mt      ]  should see with [their] eyes,
                  and hear with [their] ears,
                  and should understand with [their] heart, and
    [Mt Mk   ]  should be converted,
    [   Mk   ]  and [their] sins should be forgiven them,
    [Mt      ]  and I should heal them.
Mt 13:16
    [Mt      ]  But blessed [are] your eyes, for they see:
                  and your ears, for they hear.
Mt 13:17
    [Mt      ]  For verily I say unto you,
                  That many prophets and righteous [men] have desired
                  to see [those things] which ye see,
                  and have not seen [them];
                  and to hear [those things] which ye hear,
                  and have not heard [them].
Mk 4:13
    [   Mk   ]  And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable?
                  and how then will ye know all parables?
Lk 8:11
    [      Lk]  Now
Mt 13:18
    [Mt      ]  hear ye therefore;
    [Mt    Lk]  the parable
    [Mt      ]  of the sower
    [      Lk]  is this: The seed
    [        ]  [which]
Mk 4:14
    [   Mk   ]  the sower soweth
    [      Lk]  is
    [   Mk Lk]  the word
    [      Lk]  of God.
Mk 4:15
    [   Mk   ]  And
Mt 13:19
    [Mt Mk   ]  when the word
    [Mt      ]  of the kingdom
    [   Mk   ]  is sown,
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  any
Lk 8:12
    [Mt Mk Lk]  hear,
    [Mt      ]  and understand [it] not,
    [Mt    Lk]  then
    [   Mk   ]  immediately
    [Mt Mk Lk]  cometh
    [Mt      ]  the wicked [one],
    [      Lk]  the devil
    [   Mk   ]  Satan,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and taketh away
    [   Mk Lk]  the word
    [Mt Mk   ]  that was sown
    [Mt Mk Lk]  in
    [   Mk Lk]  their
    [Mt Mk Lk]  heart-
    [   Mk   ]  s,
    [      Lk]  lest they should believe and be saved.
    [   Mk Lk]  These are they
    [Mt Mk   ]  which
    [Mt      ]  received seed
    [Mt Mk Lk]  by the way side.
Mt 13:20
Mk 4:16
Lk 8:13
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk   ]  these are
    [   Mk Lk]  they
    [   Mk   ]  likewise
    [Mt Mk   ]  which
    [   Mk   ]  are
    [Mt Mk   ]  sown
    [Mt Mk Lk]  on the rock-
    [Mt Mk   ]  y places;
    [Mt Mk Lk]  who,
    [   Mk Lk]  when they
    [Mt Mk Lk]  hear the word,
    [Mt Mk   ]  immediately
    [Mt Mk Lk]  receive
    [Mt Mk   ]  it
    [Mt Mk Lk]  with joy;
Mt 13:21
Mk 4:17
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [      Lk]  these
    [Mt Mk Lk]  have no root
    [Mt Mk   ]  in
    [   Mk   ]  themselves,
    [Mt Mk   ]  but endure
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  believe
    [Mt Mk Lk]  for a while:
    [Mt    Lk]  and
    [   Mk   ]  afterward,
    [      Lk]  in time of temptation,
    [Mt Mk   ]  when tribulation or persecution
                  ariseth because of the word, immediately
    [   Mk   ]  they are
    [Mt Mk   ]  offended
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  fall away.
Mt 13:22
Mk 4:18
Lk 8:14
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk Lk]  these are they which
    [   Mk   ]  are
    [Mt Mk   ]  sown
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  fell
    [Mt Mk Lk]  among the thorns; which,
    [      Lk]  when they
    [Mt Mk Lk]  hear
    [Mt Mk   ]  the word,
    [      Lk]  go forth,
Mk 4:19
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [Mt Mk   ]  the
    [Mt Mk Lk]  care-
    [   Mk Lk]  s
    [Mt Mk Lk]  of
    [Mt Mk   ]  this
    [Mt Mk Lk]  life, and
    [Mt Mk   ]  the deceitfulness of
    [Mt Mk Lk]  riches,
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [   Mk   ]  the
    [   Mk Lk]  lusts
    [   Mk   ]  of other things entering in,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  choke
    [Mt Mk   ]  the word,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [Mt Mk   ]  it
    [Mt Mk Lk]  bringeth no fruit
    [      Lk]  to perfection.
Mt 13:23
Mk 4:20
Lk 8:15
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk Lk]  these are they
    [Mt Mk Lk]  which
    [   Mk   ]  are
    [Mt Mk   ]  sown
    [Mt Mk Lk]  on the good ground; which
    [      Lk]  in an honest and good heart,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  hear the word,
    [Mt      ]  and understand
    [   Mk   ]  and receive
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  keep
    [Mt Mk Lk]  [it],
    [Mt      ]  which
    [Mt Mk Lk]  also bear fruit
    [      Lk]  with patience,
    [Mt      ]  and bring forth,
    [Mt Mk   ]  some thirty, some sixty,
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [Mt Mk   ]  some an hundred.
Mk 4:21
    [   Mk   ]  And he said unto them,
Lk 8:16
    [   Mk Lk]  No
    [      Lk]  man, when he hath
    [   Mk   ]  brought
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  lighted
    [   Mk Lk]  a candle,
    [      Lk]  covereth it
    [        ]  [by]
    [   Mk Lk]  put-
    [        ]  ting
    [      Lk]  [it]
    [   Mk   ]  under
    [   Mk Lk]  a vessel, or under a bed;
    [      Lk]  but
    [   Mk Lk]  set-
    [      Lk]  teth [it]
    [   Mk Lk]  on a candlestick,
    [      Lk]  that they which enter in may see the light.
Mk 4:22
Lk 8:17
    [   Mk Lk]  For nothing is hid,
                  that shall not be made manifest; neither
    [   Mk   ]  was any thing kept
    [   Mk Lk]  secret, but
    [   Mk   ]  that it
    [   Mk Lk]  should
    [      Lk]  be known and
    [   Mk Lk]  come abroad.
Mk 4:23
    [   Mk   ]  If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
Mk 4:24
    [   Mk   ]  And he said unto them,
Lk 8:18
    [   Mk Lk]  Take heed
    [      Lk]  therefore
    [   Mk   ]  what
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  how
    [   Mk Lk]  ye hear:
    [   Mk   ]  with what measure ye mete,
                  it shall be measured to you:
                  and unto you that hear shall more be given.
Mt 13:12
Mk 4:25
    [Mt Mk Lk]  For whosoever hath, to him shall be given,
    [Mt      ]  and he shall have more abundance:
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and whosoever hath not,
                  from him shall be taken even that which he
    [      Lk]  seemeth to
    [Mt Mk Lk]  have.
Mk 4:26
    [   Mk   ]  And he said, So is the kingdom of God,
                  as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
Mk 4:27
    [   Mk   ]  and should sleep, and rise night and day,
                  and the seed should spring and grow up,
                  he knoweth not how.
Mk 4:28
    [   Mk   ]  For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself;
                  first the blade, then the ear,
                  after that the full corn in the ear.
Mk 4:29
    [   Mk   ]  But when the fruit is brought forth,
                  immediately he putteth in the sickle,
                  because the harvest is come.
Mt 13:24
    [Mt      ]  Another parable put he forth unto them, saying,
                  The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man
                  which sowed good seed in his field:
Mt 13:25
    [Mt      ]  but while men slept, his enemy came
                  and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
Mt 13:26
    [Mt      ]  But when the blade was sprung up,
                  and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
Mt 13:27
    [Mt      ]  So the servants of the householder came
                  and said unto him,
                  Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field?
                  from whence then hath it tares?
Mt 13:28
    [Mt      ]  He said unto them, An enemy hath done this.
                  The servants said unto him,
                  Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
Mt 13:29
    [Mt      ]  But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares,
                  ye root up also the wheat with them.
Mt 13:30
    [Mt      ]  Let both grow together until the harvest:
                  and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers,
                  Gather ye together first the tares,
                  and bind them in bundles to burn them:
                  but gather the wheat into my barn.
Mk 4:30
    [   Mk   ]  And
Mt 13:31
    [Mt      ]  another parable put
    [Mt Mk   ]  he
    [Mt      ]  forth unto them,
    [Mt Mk   ]  saying,
    [   Mk   ]  Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God?
                  or with what comparison shall we compare it?
    [Mt      ]  The kingdom of heaven is
Mk 4:31
    [Mt Mk   ]  like to a grain of mustard seed,
    [Mt      ]  which a man took, and sowed in his field:
Mt 13:32
    [Mt Mk   ]  which
    [Mt      ]  indeed,
    [   Mk   ]  when it is sown in the earth,
    [Mt Mk   ]  is less than all the seeds
    [   Mk   ]  that be in the earth:
Mk 4:32
    [Mt Mk   ]  but when it
    [   Mk   ]  is sown, it
    [Mt Mk   ]  groweth up,
    [   Mk   ]  and becometh
    [Mt Mk   ]  greater than
    [   Mk   ]  all
    [Mt Mk   ]  herbs,
    [   Mk   ]  and shooteth out great branches,
    [Mt      ]  and becometh a tree;
    [Mt Mk   ]  so that the birds of the air
    [   Mk   ]  may
    [Mt      ]  come and
    [Mt Mk   ]  lodge
    [   Mk   ]  under the shadow
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  in the branches
    [Mt Mk   ]  thereof.
Mt 13:33
    [Mt      ]  Another parable spake he unto them;
                  The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven,
                  which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal,
                  till the whole was leavened.
Mt 13:34
    [Mt      ]  All these things,
Mk 4:33
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [Mt Mk   ]  with
    [   Mk   ]  many such
    [Mt Mk   ]  parables, spake
    [Mt      ]  Jesus
    [   Mk   ]  the word
    [Mt Mk   ]  unto
    [Mt      ]  the multitude,
    [   Mk   ]  as they were able to hear [it];
Mk 4:34
    [Mt Mk   ]  and without a parable spake he not unto them:
Mt 13:35
    [Mt      ]  that it might be fulfilled
                  which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
                  I will open my mouth in parables;
                  I will utter things which have been kept secret
                  from the foundation of the world.
    [   Mk   ]  And when they were alone,
                  he expounded all things to his disciples.
Mt 13:36
    [Mt      ]  Then Jesus sent the multitude away,
                  and went into the house:
                  and his disciples came unto him, saying,
                  Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
Mt 13:37
    [Mt      ]  He answered and said unto them,
                  He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
Mt 13:38
    [Mt      ]  the field is the world;
                  the good seed are the children of the kingdom;
                  but the tares are the children of the wicked [one];
Mt 13:39
    [Mt      ]  the enemy that sowed them is the devil;
                  the harvest is the end of the world;
                  and the reapers are the angels.
Mt 13:40
    [Mt      ]  As therefore the tares are gathered
                  and burned in the fire;
                  so shall it be in the end of this world.
Mt 13:41
    [Mt      ]  The Son of man shall send forth his angels,
                  and they shall gather out of his kingdom
                  all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
Mt 13:42
    [Mt      ]  and shall cast them into a furnace of fire:
                  there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Mt 13:43
    [Mt      ]  Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun
                  in the kingdom of their Father.
                  Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Mt 13:44
    [Mt      ]  Again, the kingdom of heaven
                  is like unto treasure hid in a field;
                  the which when a man hath found, he hideth,
                  and for joy thereof goeth and selleth
                  all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
Mt 13:45
    [Mt      ]  Again, the kingdom of heaven
                  is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
Mt 13:46
    [Mt      ]  who, when he had found one pearl of great price,
                  went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Mt 13:47
    [Mt      ]  Again, the kingdom of heaven
                  is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea,
                  and gathered of every kind:
Mt 13:48
    [Mt      ]  which, when it was full, they drew to shore,
                  and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels,
                  but cast the bad away.
Mt 13:49
    [Mt      ]  So shall it be at the end of the world:
                  the angels shall come forth,
                  and sever the wicked from among the just,
Mt 13:50
    [Mt      ]  and shall cast them into the furnace of fire:
                  there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Mt 13:51
    [Mt      ]  Jesus saith unto them,
                  Have ye understood all these things?
                  They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
Mt 13:52
    [Mt      ]  Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe
                  [which is] instructed unto the kingdom of heaven
                  is like unto a man [that is] an householder,
                  which bringeth forth out of his treasure
                  [things] new and old.
Mt 13:53
    [Mt      ]  And it came to pass,
                  [that] when Jesus had finished these parables,
                  he departed thence.

    [At this point Matthew jumps to Plate K. But Mark 4:35 reveals
      that the events which begin Plate J took place the same day as the
      events which close Plate I. Hence I follow Mark and Luke at this
      point.]
 

Plate J

66. Jesus Calms a Storm
    [Matthew 8:18, 23-27; Mark 4:35-41; & Luke 8:22-25]

Mt 8:18
Mk 4:35
Lk 8:22
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  it came to pass
    [   Mk Lk]  on
    [   Mk   ]  the same
    [   Mk Lk]  day,
    [      Lk]  that,
    [Mt Mk   ]  when
    [   Mk   ]  the even was come,
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  Jesus saw great multitudes about him,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  he
    [Mt      ]  gave commandment,
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk Lk]  said unto them, Let us
    [Mt Mk Lk]  go
    [   Mk Lk]  over
    [Mt Mk Lk]  unto the other side
    [      Lk]  of the lake.
Mt 8:23
Mk 4:36
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  when
    [   Mk   ]  they had sent away the multitude,
    [Mt    Lk]  he entered into a ship,
    [      Lk]  and
    [Mt    Lk]  his disciples
    [Mt      ]  followed him.
    [      Lk]  And
    [   Mk Lk]  they
    [   Mk   ]  took him even as he was in the ship,
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  launched forth.
    [   Mk   ]  And there were also with him other little ships.
Mt 8:24
Mk 4:38a
Lk 8:23
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  as they sailed
    [Mt Mk Lk]  he
    [      Lk]  fell
    [Mt Mk Lk]  asleep
    [   Mk   ]  on a pillow in the hinder part of the ship.
Mk 4:37
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And,
    [Mt      ]  behold,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  there came
    [      Lk]  down
    [Mt Mk Lk]  a
    [Mt Mk   ]  great
    [Mt Mk Lk]  tempest
    [   Mk Lk]  of wind
    [Mt    Lk]  on the lake;
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [Mt Mk   ]  the waves
    [   Mk   ]  beat into
    [Mt Mk   ]  the ship, so that
    [   Mk   ]  it
    [Mt Mk   ]  was
    [   Mk   ]  now
    [Mt      ]  covered;
    [      Lk]  and they were
    [   Mk Lk]  filled
    [Mt      ]  with
    [      Lk]  [water], and were in jeopardy.
Mt 8:25
Mk 4:38b
Lk 8:24
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt      ]  his disciples
    [Mt    Lk]  came to [him], and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  awoke him,
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  said
    [   Mk   ]  unto him,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  Master,
    [      Lk]  master,
    [Mt      ]  save us:
    [   Mk   ]  carest thou not that
    [Mt Mk Lk]  we perish?
Mt 8:26
Mk 4:40a
    [Mt Mk   ]  And he saith unto them, Why are ye
    [   Mk   ]  so
    [Mt Mk   ]  fearful,
    [Mt      ]  O ye of little faith?
Mk 4:39
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt      ]  then
    [Mt Mk Lk]  he arose, and rebuked the wind-
    [Mt      ]  s
    [Mt    Lk]  and
    [      Lk]  the raging of the water,
    [   Mk   ]  and said unto
    [Mt Mk   ]  the sea,
    [   Mk   ]  Peace, be still.
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk   ]  the wind
    [   Mk Lk]  ceased,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and there was a
    [Mt Mk   ]  great
    [Mt Mk Lk]  calm.
Lk 8:25
    [      Lk]  And he said unto them, Where is your faith?
Mk 4:40b
    [   Mk   ]  How is it that ye have no faith?
Mt 8:27
Mk 4:41
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt      ]  the men
    [   Mk Lk]  being
    [   Mk   ]  exceedingly
    [   Mk Lk]  afraid
    [Mt    Lk]  marvelled,
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  said
    [   Mk Lk]  one to another,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  What manner of man is this, that
    [      Lk]  he commandeth
    [Mt Mk Lk]  even the wind-
    [Mt    Lk]  s
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [      Lk]  water
    [        ]  [of]
    [Mt Mk   ]  the sea,
    [      Lk]  and they
    [Mt Mk Lk]  obey him!
 

67. The Gadarene Demoniacs
    [Matthew 8:28-9:1a (...and passed over,); Mark 5:1-21;
    & Luke 8:26-40]

Mt 8:28
Mk 5:1
Lk 8:26
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk Lk]  they
    [Mt Mk Lk]  came
    [Mt Mk   ]  to the other side
    [   Mk   ]  of the sea,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  into the country of the
    [   Mk Lk]  Gadarenes
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  Gergesenes,
    [      Lk]  which is over against Galilee.
Mk 5:2
Lk 8:27
    [   Mk Lk]  And when he went forth
    [   Mk   ]  out of the ship
    [      Lk]  to land,
    [   Mk   ]  immediately
    [Mt Mk Lk]  there met him,
    [Mt      ]  coming
    [Mt Mk Lk]  out of
    [Mt Mk   ]  the tombs
    [        ]  [of]
    [      Lk]  the city,
    [Mt      ]  two
    [   Mk Lk]  m-
    [        ]  [e]-
    [   Mk Lk]  n
    [Mt Mk Lk]  which had
    [   Mk   ]  unclean
    [Mt    Lk]  devil
    [   Mk   ]  spirit-
    [Mt    Lk]  s
    [      Lk]  long time, and ware no clothes,
                  neither abode in [any] house, but
Mk 5:3
    [   Mk   ]  had
    [        ]  [their]
    [   Mk   ]  dwelling
    [   Mk Lk]  in the tombs;
    [Mt      ]  exceeding fierce,
                  so that no man might pass by that way.
    [   Mk   ]  And no man could bind
    [        ]  [them],
    [   Mk   ]  no, not with chains:
Mk 5:4
    [   Mk   ]  neither could any [man] tame
    [        ]  [them].
Lk 8:29b
    [   Mk Lk]  For oftentimes
    [        ]  [the devils]
    [      Lk]  had caught
    [        ]  [them]:
    [      Lk]  and
    [        ]  [they]
    [   Mk   ]  had been
    [      Lk]  kept
    [   Mk Lk]  bound with fetters and chains, and the chains
    [   Mk   ]  had been plucked
    [   Mk Lk]  asunder
    [   Mk   ]  by
    [        ]  [them],
    [   Mk   ]  and the fetters
    [   Mk Lk]  broken
    [   Mk   ]  in pieces:
    [      Lk]  and
    [        ]  [they were]
    [      Lk]  driven of the devil into the wilderness.
Mk 5:5
    [   Mk   ]  And always, night and day,
    [        ]  [they were]
    [   Mk   ]  in the mountains, and in the tombs,
                  crying, and cutting
    [        ]  [themselves]
    [   Mk   ]  with stones.
Mt 8:29
Mk 5:6
Lk 8:28
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk Lk]  when
    [        ]  [they]
    [   Mk Lk]  saw Jesus
    [   Mk   ]  afar off,
    [Mt      ]  behold, they
    [   Mk   ]  ran,
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  fell down before him
    [   Mk   ]  and worshipped him,
Mk 5:7
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  cried out,
    [   Mk Lk]  and with a loud voice
    [Mt Mk Lk]  said, What have
    [Mt      ]  we
    [Mt Mk Lk]  to do with thee, Jesus, [thou] Son of
    [   Mk Lk]  the most high
    [Mt Mk Lk]  God?
    [Mt      ]  art thou come hither to torment us before the time?
    [   Mk Lk]  I adjure thee
    [   Mk   ]  by God,
    [   Mk Lk]  torment
    [        ]  [us]
    [   Mk Lk]  not.
Mk 5:8
Lk 8:29a
    [   Mk Lk]  For he
    [      Lk]  had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the
    [        ]  [first]
    [      Lk]  man,
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk   ]  said unto him,
                  Come out of the man, [thou] unclean spirit.
Mk 5:9
Lk 8:30
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  Jesus
    [   Mk Lk]  asked him,
    [      Lk]  saying,
    [   Mk Lk]  What
    [      Lk]  is
    [   Mk Lk]  thy name? And he
    [   Mk   ]  answered,
    [   Mk Lk]  saying,
    [   Mk   ]  My name [is]
    [   Mk Lk]  Legion;
    [   Mk   ]  for we are many:
    [      Lk]  because many devils were entered into him.
Mk 5:10
Lk 8:31
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  they
    [   Mk Lk]  besought him
    [   Mk   ]  much
    [   Mk Lk]  that he would not
    [   Mk   ]  send them away out of the country,
    [        ]  [nor]
    [      Lk]  command them to go out into the deep.
Mt 8:30
Mk 5:11
Lk 8:32
    [Mt Mk Lk]  Now there was
    [   Mk Lk]  there,
    [Mt      ]  a good way off from them,
    [   Mk   ]  nigh
    [      Lk]  on
    [   Mk Lk]  the mountain-
    [   Mk   ]  s,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  a great herd of swine feeding.
Mt 8:31
Mk 5:12
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk   ]  all
    [Mt Mk   ]  the devils
    [Mt Mk Lk]  besought him
    [      Lk]  that he would suffer them to enter into them,
    [Mt Mk   ]  saying,
    [Mt      ]  If thou cast us out,
    [   Mk   ]  send us
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  suffer us to go away
    [Mt Mk   ]  into the
    [Mt      ]  herd of
    [Mt Mk   ]  swine,
    [   Mk   ]  that we may enter into them.
Mt 8:32
Mk 5:13
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [   Mk   ]  forthwith Jesus
    [   Mk Lk]  gave them leave,
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  said unto them, Go.
Lk 8:33
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And when
    [   Mk Lk]  the
    [   Mk   ]  unclean
    [      Lk]  devil
    [   Mk   ]  spirit-
    [   Mk Lk]  s
    [Mt Mk Lk]  were come out
    [      Lk]  of the m-
    [        ]  [e]-
    [      Lk]  n,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  they went into the
    [Mt      ]  herd of
    [Mt Mk Lk]  swine: and,
    [Mt      ]  behold,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  the
    [Mt      ]  whole
    [Mt Mk Lk]  herd
    [Mt      ]  of swine
    [Mt Mk Lk]  ran violently down a steep place into the sea,
    [   Mk   ]  (they were about two thousand;)
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and
    [   Mk Lk]  were choked
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt      ]  perished
    [Mt Mk   ]  in the
    [Mt      ]  waters
    [        ]  [of the]
    [   Mk   ]  sea.
Mt 8:33
Mk 5:14
Lk 8:34
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  when
    [Mt Mk Lk]  they that fed
    [   Mk   ]  the swine
    [      Lk]  saw what was done, they
    [Mt Mk Lk]  fled,
    [Mt    Lk]  and went their ways
    [Mt      ]  into the city,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and told
    [Mt      ]  every thing
    [   Mk Lk]  in the city and in the country,
    [Mt      ]  and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.
Mt 8:34
Lk 8:35
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And,
    [Mt      ]  behold, the whole city
    [Mt Mk Lk]  came out
    [Mt      ]  to meet Jesus
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk Lk]  to see what
    [   Mk   ]  it was that
    [   Mk Lk]  was done.
Mk 5:15
    [   Mk Lk]  And they came to Jesus, and saw
    [      Lk]  the m-
    [        ]  [e]-
    [      Lk]  n
    [   Mk   ]  that
    [        ]  [were]
    [   Mk   ]  possessed with
    [   Mk Lk]  the devils,
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [      Lk]  out of whom
    [   Mk Lk]  had
    [      Lk]  departed
    [   Mk   ]  the legion,
    [   Mk Lk]  sitting
    [      Lk]  at the feet of Jesus,
    [   Mk   ]  and
    [   Mk Lk]  clothed, and in
    [        ]  [their]
    [   Mk Lk]  right mind: and they were afraid.
Mk 5:16
Lk 8:36
    [   Mk Lk]  And they
    [      Lk]  also
    [   Mk Lk]  which saw [it] told them how
    [   Mk   ]  it befell
    [        ]  [that they]
    [   Mk Lk]  that
    [        ]  [were]
    [   Mk Lk]  possessed of the devils
    [        ]  [were]
    [      Lk]  healed,
    [   Mk   ]  and [also] concerning the swine.
Mk 5:17
Lk 8:37
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [Mt      ]  when
    [Mt Mk   ]  they
    [Mt      ]  saw him,
    [      Lk]  the whole multitude
                  of the country of the Gadarenes round about
    [   Mk   ]  began to
    [Mt Mk Lk]  beseech
    [   Mk Lk]  him
    [Mt      ]  that he would
    [Mt Mk Lk]  depart from
    [Mt Mk   ]  their coasts;
    [      Lk]  for they were taken with great fear:
Mt 9:1a
Mk 5:18
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and he entered into the ship,
    [   Mk Lk]  and
    [      Lk]  returned back again.
Lk 8:38
    [      Lk]  Now
    [        ]  [one of]
    [      Lk]  the m-
    [        ]  [e]-
    [      Lk]  n
    [   Mk   ]  that had been possessed with
    [   Mk Lk]  the devils,
    [      Lk]  out of whom
    [        ]  [they]
    [      Lk]  were departed,
    [   Mk Lk]  besought him that he might be with him.
Mk 5:19
    [   Mk Lk]  Howbeit Jesus
    [   Mk   ]  suffered him not, but
    [      Lk]  sent him away,
    [   Mk Lk]  saying
    [   Mk   ]  unto him, Go,
Lk 8:39
    [      Lk]  return
    [   Mk Lk]  to thy house
    [   Mk   ]  unto thy friends,
    [   Mk Lk]  and tell
    [   Mk   ]  them
    [   Mk Lk]  how great things
    [   Mk   ]  the Lord
    [      Lk]  God
    [   Mk Lk]  hath done for thee,
    [   Mk   ]  and hath had compassion on thee.
Mk 5:20
    [   Mk Lk]  And he went his way, and
    [   Mk   ]  began to
    [   Mk Lk]  publish
    [      Lk]  throughout the whole city
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk   ]  in Decapolis
    [   Mk Lk]  how great things Jesus had done for him:
    [   Mk   ]  and all [men] did marvel.
Mk 5:21
Lk 8:40
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  it came to pass, that,
    [   Mk Lk]  when Jesus was
    [Mt Mk   ]  passed over
    [   Mk   ]  again by ship
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  returned
    [   Mk   ]  unto the other side, much
    [   Mk Lk]  people
    [      Lk]  [gladly] received him
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk   ]  gathered unto him:
    [      Lk]  for they were all waiting for him.
    [   Mk   ]  And he was nigh unto the sea.

    [At this point Matthew jumps to Plate D. But Mark 4:35 links
      Plates I and J. And in Plate I Mark mentions the Twelve Apostles
      (Mark 4:10). But Matthew, who was one of the Twelve, was not even
      a disciple until he was called by Jesus in Plate D (Matthew 9:9).
      This makes it impossible to place Plate J before Plate D. Mark
      inserts Plate E between Plates J and K. But Matthew 9:18 links
      Plates E and F. Hence I go directly from Plate J to Plate K.]

68. Jesus Again Rejected at Nazareth
    [Matthew 13:54-58 & Mark 6:1-6a (...of their unbelief.)]

Mt 13:54
Mk 6:1
    [Mt Mk]  And he
    [   Mk]  went out from thence, and
    [Mt Mk]  came into his own country;
    [   Mk]  and his disciples follow him.
Mk 6:2
    [   Mk]  And when the sabbath day was come,
    [Mt Mk]  he
    [   Mk]  began to
    [Mt Mk]  teach
    [Mt   ]  them
    [Mt Mk]  in
    [Mt   ]  their
    [Mt Mk]  synagogue,
    [Mt   ]  insomuch that
    [   Mk]  many hearing [him]
    [Mt Mk]  were astonished,
    [Mt   ]  and
    [Mt Mk]  said, Whence hath this [man]
    [   Mk]  these things? and what
    [Mt Mk]  wisdom
    [   Mk]  [is]
    [Mt Mk]  this
    [   Mk]  which is given unto him, that
    [Mt Mk]  even
    [   Mk]  such
    [Mt Mk]  mighty works
    [   Mk]  are wrought by his hands?
Mt 13:55
Mk 6:3
    [Mt Mk]  Is not this
    [   Mk]  the carpenter,
    [Mt Mk]  the son of
    [Mt   ]  the carpenter? is not his mother called
    [Mt Mk]  Mary? and
    [     ]  [is he not]
    [   Mk]  the brother of
    [Mt   ]  his brethren,
    [Mt Mk]  James, and Joses, and Simon, and Juda-
    [Mt   ]  s?
Mt 13:56
    [Mt Mk]  and are not his sisters
    [Mt   ]  all
    [   Mk]  here
    [Mt Mk]  with us?
    [Mt   ]  Whence then hath this [man] all these things?
Mt 13:57
    [Mt Mk]  And they were offended in him.
Mk 6:4
    [Mt Mk]  But Jesus said unto them,
               A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country,
    [   Mk]  and among his own kin,
    [Mt Mk]  and in his own house.
Mt 13:58
Mk 6:5
    [Mt Mk]  And he
    [   Mk]  could
    [Mt Mk]  not do
    [Mt   ]  many
    [Mt Mk]  mighty work-
    [Mt   ]  s
    [Mt Mk]  there
    [Mt   ]  because of their unbelief,
    [   Mk]  save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk,
               and healed [them].
Mk 6:6a
    [   Mk]  And he marvelled because of their unbelief.

    [At this point Matthew jumps directly to Plate M, and places Plate
      L before Plate H. But Luke 7:18 links Plates G and H. Hence I
      follow Mark and Luke at this point.]

69. Jesus' Third Circuit through Galilee
    [Matthew 9:35-38 & Mark 6:6b (And he went...)]

Mt 9:35
Mk 6:6b
    [Mt Mk]  And
    [Mt   ]  Jesus
    [Mt Mk]  went
    [   Mk]  round
    [Mt Mk]  about
    [Mt   ]  all the cities and
    [Mt Mk]  the villages, teaching
    [Mt   ]  in their synagogues,
               and preaching the gospel of the kingdom,
               and healing every sickness
               and every disease among the people.
Mt 9:36
    [Mt   ]  But when he saw the multitudes,
               he was moved with compassion on them,
               because they fainted, and were scattered abroad,
               as sheep having no shepherd.
Mt 9:37
    [Mt   ]  Then saith he unto his disciples,
               The harvest truly [is] plenteous,
               but the labourers [are] few;
Mt 9:38
    [Mt   ]  pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest,
               that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
 

70. The Twelve Apostles Sent Out
    [Matthew 10:1-11:1; Mark 6:7-13; & Luke 9:1-6]

Mt 10:1
Mk 6:7
Lk 9:1
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And he called
    [      Lk]  together
    [Mt Mk   ]  unto [him]
    [Mt    Lk]  his
    [Mt Mk Lk]  twelve
    [Mt    Lk]  disciples,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  and gave them
    [      Lk]  power and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  authority over
    [      Lk]  all devils
    [        ]  [and]
    [Mt Mk   ]  unclean spirits,
    [Mt      ]  to cast them out,
    [Mt    Lk]  and to heal
    [Mt      ]  all manner of
    [Mt    Lk]  sickness-
    [      Lk]  es
    [Mt      ]  and all manner of disease.
Mt 10:2
    [Mt      ]  Now the names of the twelve apostles are these;
                  The first, Simon, who is called Peter,
                  and Andrew his brother;
                  James [the son] of Zebedee, and John his brother;
Mt 10:3
    [Mt      ]  Philip, and Bartholomew;
                  Thomas, and Matthew the publican;
                  James [the son] of Alphaeus,
                  and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;
Mt 10:4
    [Mt      ]  Simon the Canaanite,
                  and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
Lk 9:2
    [   Mk Lk]  And
Mt 10:5
    [Mt      ]  these twelve Jesus
    [   Mk   ]  began to
    [Mt Mk Lk]  send forth
    [   Mk   ]  by two and two,
    [      Lk]  to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.
    [Mt      ]  And
    [        ]  [he]
    [Mt      ]  commanded them, saying,
                 Go not into the way of the Gentiles,
                  and into [any] city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
Mt 10:6
    [Mt      ]  but go rather
                  to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Mt 10:7
    [Mt      ]  And as ye go, preach, saying,
                  The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Mt 10:8
    [Mt      ]  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead,
                  cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Mk 6:8
Lk 9:3
    [   Mk Lk]  And he
    [   Mk   ]  commanded
    [        ]  [and]
    [      Lk]  said unto
    [   Mk Lk]  them
    [   Mk   ]  that they should
    [   Mk Lk]  take nothing
Mt 10:10b
    [Mt Mk Lk]  for
    [   Mk   ]  [their]
    [Mt Mk Lk]  journey,
    [   Mk   ]  save a staff only:
Mt 10:9
    [Mt      ]  Provide neither gold,
    [Mt    Lk]  nor silver,
    [Mt Mk   ]  nor brass in
    [Mt      ]  your
    [Mt Mk   ]  purse-
    [Mt      ]  s,
Mt 10:10a
    [Mt Mk Lk]  nor scrip,
    [   Mk Lk]  nor bread:
Mk 6:9
    [   Mk   ]  but [be] shod with sandals;
Mt 10:10c
    [Mt Mk Lk]  neither
    [      Lk]  have
    [Mt Mk Lk]  two coats
    [      Lk]  apiece
    [        ]  [to]
    [   Mk   ]  put on,
    [Mt      ]  nor shoes,
    [Mt    Lk]  nor staves:
    [Mt      ]  for the workman is worthy of his meat.
Mk 6:10
    [   Mk   ]  And he said unto them,
Mt 10:11
Lk 9:4
    [Mt    Lk]  And
    [Mt Mk   ]  in-
    [Mt      ]  to
    [Mt Mk Lk]  whatsoever
    [Mt      ]  city or town ye shall enter,
                  enquire who in it is worthy; and
    [Mt Mk Lk]  there abide
    [Mt Mk   ]  till ye
    [Mt Mk Lk]  depart
    [   Mk Lk]  thence.
Mt 10:12
    [Mt      ]  And when
    [Mt Mk Lk]  ye enter into
    [Mt Mk   ]  an
    [Mt Mk Lk]  house,
    [Mt      ]  salute it.
Mt 10:13
    [Mt      ]  And if the house be worthy,
                  let your peace come upon it:
                  but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
Mt 10:14
Mk 6:11
Lk 9:5
    [Mt Mk Lk]  And whosoever will not receive you,
    [Mt Mk   ]  nor hear you-
    [Mt      ]  r words,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  when ye depart
    [   Mk   ]  thence
    [Mt    Lk]  out of that
    [Mt      ]  house or
    [Mt    Lk]  city,
    [Mt Mk Lk]  shake off the
    [      Lk]  very
    [Mt Mk Lk]  dust
    [      Lk]  from
    [   Mk   ]  under
    [Mt Mk Lk]  your feet
    [   Mk Lk]  for a testimony against them.
Mt 10:15
    [Mt Mk   ]  Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for
    [Mt      ]  the land of
    [Mt Mk   ]  Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment,
                  than for that city.
Mt 10:16
    [Mt      ]  Behold, I send you forth as sheep
                  in the midst of wolves:
                  be ye therefore wise as serpents,
                  and harmless as doves.
Mt 10:17
    [Mt      ]  But beware of men:
                  for they will deliver you up to the councils,
                  and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
Mt 10:18
    [Mt      ]  and ye shall be brought
                  before governors and kings for my sake,
                  for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
Mt 10:19
    [Mt      ]  But when they deliver you up,
                  take no thought how or what ye shall speak:
                  for it shall be given you in that same hour
                  what ye shall speak.
Mt 10:20
    [Mt      ]  For it is not ye that speak,
                  but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
Mt 10:21
    [Mt      ]  And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death,
                  and the father the child: and the children
                  shall rise up against [their] parents,
                  and cause them to be put to death.
Mt 10:22
    [Mt      ]  And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name's sake:
                  but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Mt 10:23
    [Mt      ]  But when they persecute you in this city,
                  flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you,
                  Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel,
                  till the Son of man be come.
Mt 10:24
    [Mt      ]  The disciple is not above [his] master,
                  nor the servant above his lord.
Mt 10:25
    [Mt      ]  It is enough for the disciple
                  that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord.
                  If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub,
                  how much more [shall they call] them of his household?
Mt 10:26
    [Mt      ]  Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered,
                  that shall not be revealed;
                  and hid, that shall not be known.
Mt 10:27
    [Mt      ]  What I tell you in darkness, [that] speak ye in light:
                  and what ye hear in the ear,
                  [that] preach ye upon the house tops.
Mt 10:28
    [Mt      ]  And fear not them which kill the body,
                  but are not able to kill the soul:
                  but rather fear him which is able to destroy
                  both soul and body in hell.
Mt 10:29
    [Mt      ]  Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing?
                  and one of them shall not fall on the ground
                  without your Father.
Mt 10:30
    [Mt      ]  But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Mt 10:31
    [Mt      ]  Fear ye not therefore,
                  ye are of more value than many sparrows.
Mt 10:32
    [Mt      ]  Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men,
                  him will I confess also
                  before my Father which is in heaven.
Mt 10:33
    [Mt      ]  But whosoever shall deny me before men,
                  him will I also deny
                  before my Father which is in heaven.
Mt 10:34
    [Mt      ]  Think not that I am come to send peace on earth:
                  I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Mt 10:35
    [Mt      ]  For I am come to set a man
                  at variance against his father,
                  and the daughter against her mother,
                  and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Mt 10:36
    [Mt      ]  And a man's foes [shall be] they of his own household.
Mt 10:37
    [Mt      ]  He that loveth father or mother more than me
                  is not worthy of me:
                  and he that loveth son or daughter more than me
                  is not worthy of me.
Mt 10:38
    [Mt      ]  And he that taketh not his cross,
                  and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
Mt 10:39
    [Mt      ]  He that findeth his life shall lose it:
                  and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
Mt 10:40
    [Mt      ]  He that receiveth you receiveth me,
                  and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
Mt 10:41
    [Mt      ]  He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet
                  shall receive a prophet's reward;
                  and he that receiveth a righteous man
                  in the name of a righteous man
                  shall receive a righteous man's reward.
Mt 10:42
    [Mt      ]  And whosoever shall give to drink
                  unto one of these little ones
                  a cup of cold [water] only in the name of a disciple,
                  verily I say unto you,
                  he shall in no wise lose his reward.
Mt 11:1
    [Mt      ]  And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end
                  of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence
                  to teach and to preach in their cities.
Mk 6:12
Lk 9:6
    [   Mk Lk]  And they departed,
    [      Lk]  and went through the towns,
    [   Mk Lk]  preaching
    [      Lk]  the gospel
    [        ]  [and]
    [   Mk   ]  that men should repent.
Mk 6:13
    [   Mk Lk]  And
    [      Lk]  every where
    [   Mk   ]  they cast out many devils,
                  and anointed with oil many that were sick, and
    [   Mk Lk]  healed
    [   Mk   ]  [them].

      Plates G and H. Hence I follow Mark and Luke at this point.]
