Jesus and the Twelve

1CALLING the Twelve together he gave them power and authority to overcome all demons and to cure diseases,

2and sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.

3“Take nothing for the journey,” he told them, “neither stick nor pack, neither bread nor money; nor are you to have a second coat.

4When you enter a house, stay there until you leave that place.

5As for those who will not receive you, when you leave their town shake the dust off your feet as a warning to them.”

6So they set out and travelled from village to village, and everywhere they announced the good news and healed the sick.

7Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was happening, and did not know what to make of it; for some were saying that John had been raised from the dead,

8others that Elijah had appeared, others again that one of the prophets of old had come back to life.

9Herod said, “As for John, I beheaded him; but who is this I hear so much about?” And he was anxious to see him.

10On their return the apostles gave Jesus an account of all they had done. Then he took them with him and withdrew privately to a town called Bethsaida,

11but the crowds found out and followed. He welcomed them, and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and cured those who were in need of healing.

12When evening was drawing on, the Twelve came to him and said, “Send the people off, so that they can go into the villages and farms round about to find food and lodging, for this is a remote place we are in.”

13“Give them something to eat yourselves,” he replied. But they said, “All we have is five loaves and two fish, nothing more -- or do you intend us to go and buy food for all these people?”

14For there were about five thousand men. Then he said to his disciples, “Make them sit down in groups of about fifty.”

15They did so and got them all seated.

16Then, taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, said the blessing over them, broke them, and gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people.

17They all ate and were satisfied; and the scraps they left were picked up and filled twelve baskets.

18One day, when he had been praying by himself in the company of his disciples, he asked them, “Who do the people say I am?”

19They answered, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, others that one of the prophets of old has come back to life.”

20“And you,” he said, “who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “God's Messiah.”

21Then he gave them strict orders not to tell this to anyone.

22And he said, “The Son of Man has to endure great sufferings, and to be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and scribes, to be put to death, and to be raised again on the third day.”

23To everybody he said, “Anyone who wants to be a follower of mine must renounce self; day after day he must take up his cross, and follow me.

24Whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.

25What does anyone gain by winning the whole world at the cost of destroying himself?

26If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him, when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and the holy angels.

27In truth I tell you: there are some of those standing here who will not taste death before they have seen the kingdom of God.”

28About a week after this he took Peter, John, and James and went up a mountain to pray.

29And while he was praying the appearance of his face changed and his clothes became dazzling white.

30Suddenly there were two men talking with him -- Moses and Elijah --

31who appeared in glory and spoke of his departure, the destiny he was to fulfil in Jerusalem.

32Peter and his companions had been overcome by sleep; but when they awoke, they saw his glory and the two men who stood beside him.

33As these two were moving away from Jesus, Peter said to him, “Master, it is good that we are here. Shall we make three shelters, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah?” but he spoke without knowing what he was saying.

34As he spoke there came a cloud which cast its shadow over them; they were afraid as they entered the cloud,

35and from it a voice spoke: “This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him.”

36After the voice had spoken, Jesus was seen to be alone. The disciples kept silence and did not at that time say a word to anyone of what they had seen.

37Next day when they came down from the mountain a large crowd came to meet him.

38A man in the crowd called out: “Teacher, I implore you to look at my son, my only child.

39From time to time a spirit seizes him and with a sudden scream throws him into convulsions so that he foams at the mouth; it keeps on tormenting him and can hardly be made to let him go.

40I begged your disciples to drive it out, but they could not.”

41Jesus answered, “What an unbelieving and perverse generation! How long shall I be with you and endure you? Bring your son here.”

42But before the boy could reach him the demon dashed him to the ground and threw him into convulsions. Jesus spoke sternly to the unclean spirit, cured the boy, and gave him back to his father.

43And they were all struck with awe at the greatness of God. Amid the general astonishment at all he was doing, Jesus said to his disciples,

44“Listen to what I have to tell you. The Son of Man is to be given up into the power of men.”

45But they did not understand what he said; its meaning had been hidden from them, so that they could not grasp it, and they were afraid to ask him about it.

46An argument started among them as to which of them was the greatest.

47Jesus, who knew what was going on in their minds, took a child, stood him by his side,

48and said, “Whoever receives this child in my name receives me; and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me. For the least among you all is the greatest.”

49“Master,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name, but as he is not one of us we tried to stop him.”

50Jesus said to him, “Do not stop him, for he who is not against you is on your side.”

The journey to Jerusalem

51AS THE time approached when he was to be taken up to heaven, he set his face resolutely towards Jerusalem,

52and sent messengers ahead. They set out and went into a Samaritan village to make arrangements for him;

53but the villagers would not receive him because he was on his way to Jerusalem.

54When the disciples James and John saw this they said, “Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them?”

55But he turned and rebuked them,

56and they went on to another village.

57As they were going along the road a man said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”

58Jesus answered, “Foxes have their holes and birds their roosts; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.”

59To another he said, “Follow me,” but the man replied, “Let me first go and bury my father.”

60Jesus said, “Leave the dead to bury their dead; you must go and announce the kingdom of God.”

61Yet another said, “I will follow you, sir; but let me first say goodbye to my people at home.”

62To him Jesus said, “No one who sets his hand to the plough and then looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
