1THEN he called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all evil spirits and the ability to heal disease.

2He sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick,

3with these words: "Take nothing for your journeyneither a stick nor a purse nor food nor money, nor even extra clothes!

4When you come to stay at a house, remain there until you go on your way again.

5And where they will not welcome you, leave that town, and shake the dust off your feet as a protest against them!"

6So they set out, and went from village to village preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere.

7All these things came to the ears of Herod the tetrarch and caused him acute anxiety, because some people were saying that John had risen from the dead,

8some maintaining that the prophet Elijah had appeared, and others that one of the oldtime prophets had come back.

9"I beheaded John," said Herod. "Who can this be that I hear all these things about?" And he tried to find a way of seeing Jesus.

10Then the apostles returned, and when they had made their report to Jesus of what they had done, he took them with him privately and retired into a town called Bethsaida.

11But the crowds observed this and followed him. And he welcomed them and talked to them about the kingdom of God, and cured those who were in need of healing.

12As the day drew to its close the twelve came to him and said, "Please dismiss the crowd now so that they can go to the villages and farms round about and find some food and shelter, for we're quite in the wilds here."

13"You give them something to eat!" returned Jesus. "But we've nothing here," they replied, "except five loaves and two fish, unless you want us to go and buy food for all this crowd?"

14(There were approximately five thousand men there.) Then Jesus said to the disciples, "Get them to sit down in groups of about fifty."

15This they did, making them all sit down.

16Then he took the five loaves and the two fish and looked up to Heaven, blessed them, broke them into pieces and passed them to his disciples to serve to the crowd.

17Everybody ate and was satisfied. Afterwards they collected twelve baskets full of broken pieces which were left over.

18Then came this incident. While Jesus was praying by himself, having only the disciples near him, he asked them this question: "Who are the crowd saying that I am?"

19"Some say that you are John the Baptist," they replied. "Others that you are Elijah, and others think that one of the oldtime prophets has come back to life."

20Then he said, "And who do you say that I am?" "God's Christ!" said Peter.

21But Jesus expressly told them not to say a word to anybody,

22at the same time warning them of the inevitability of the Son of Man's great suffering, of his repudiation by the elders, chief priests and scribes, and of his death and of being raised to life again on the third day.

23Then be spoke to them all: "If anyone wants to follow in my footsteps, he must give up all right to himself, carry his cross every day and keep close behind me.

24For the man who wants to save his life will lose it, but the man who loses his life for my sake will save it.

25For what is the use of a man gaining the whole world if he loses or forfeits his own soul?

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.

27I tell you the simple truththere are men standing here today who will not taste death until they have seen the kingdom of God!"

28About eight days after these sayings, Jesus took Peter, James and John and went off with them to the hillside to pray.

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

30Suddenly two men could be seen talking with Jesus. They were Moses and Elijah

31revealed in heavenly splendor, and their talk was about the way he must take and the end he must fulfill in Jerusalem.

32But Peter and his companions had been overcome by sleep and it was as they struggled into wakefulness that they saw the glory of Jesus and the two men standing with him.

33Just as they were parting from him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is wonderful for us to be here! Let us put up three sheltersone for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah." But he did not know what he was saying.

34While he was still talking, a cloud overshadowed them and awe swept over them as it enveloped them.

35A voice came ant of the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, my chosen! Listen to him!"

36But when the voice had spoken, they found no one there but Jesus. The disciples were reduced to silence, and in those days never breathed a word to anyone of what they had seen.

37Then on the following day, as they came down the hillside, a great crowd met him.

38Suddenly a man from the crowd shouted out, "Master, please come and look at my son! He's my only child,

39and without any warning some spirit gets hold of him and he calls out suddenly. Then it convulses him until he foams at the mouth, and only after a fearful struggle does it go away and leave him bruised all over.

40I begged your disciples to get rid of it, but they couldn't."

41"You really are an unbelieving and difficult people," replied Jesus. "How long must I be with you, how long must I put up with you? Bring him here to me."

42But even while the boy was on his way, the spirit hurled him to the ground in a dreadful convulsion. Then Jesus reprimanded the evil spirit, healed the lad and handed him back to his father.

43And everybody present was amazed at this demonstration of the power of God. And while everybody was full of wonder at all the things they saw him do, Jesus was saying to the disciples,

44"Store up in your minds what I tell you nowadays, for the Son of Man is going to he handed over to the power of men."

45But they made no sense of this sayingsomething made it impossible for them to understand it, and they were afraid to ask him what he meant.

46Then an argument arose among them as to who should be the greatest.

47But Jesus, knowing what they were arguing about, picked up a little child and stood him by his side.

48And then he said to them, "Anyone who accepts a little child in my name is accepting me, and the man who accepts me is accepting the one who sent me. It is the humblest among you all who is really the greatest."

49Then John broke in, "Master, we saw a man driving out evil spirits in your but we stopped him, for he is not one of us who follow you."

50But Jesus told him, "You must not stop him. The man who is not against you is on your side."

51Now as the days before he should be taken back into Heaven were running out, he set his face firmly towards Jerusalem,

52and sent messengers ahead of him. They set out and entered a Samaritan village to make preparations for him.

53But the people there refused to welcome him because he was obviously intending to go to Jerusalem.

54When the disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Master, do you want us to call down fire from heaven and burn them all up?"

55But Jesus turned and reproved them,

56and they all went on to another village.

57As the little company made its way along the road a man said to him, "I'm going to follow you wherever you go."

58And Jesus replied, "Foxes have earths, birds have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head."

59But he said to another man, "Follow me." And he replied, "Let me go and bury my father first."

60But Jesus told him: "Leave the dead to bury their own dead. You must come away and preach the kingdom of God."

61Another man said to him, "I am going to follow you, Lord, but first let me bid farewell to my people at home."

62But Jesus told him, "Anyone who puts his hand to the plough and then looks behind him is useless for the kingdom of God."
