They who heard it said, "Thenwhocan be saved?"
But He said, "3The things that are impossible with people are possible with God."28Petersaid, "Behold, 4we have leftbour own homes and followed You."
And He said to them, "Truly I say to you, 5there is noonewho has lefthouseorwifeorbrothersorparentsorchildren, for the sake of the kingdom of God,30who will not receivemanytimes as much at thistime and in 6the age to come, eternallife."317Then He took the twelveaside and said to them, "Behold, 8we are going up to Jerusalem, and 9allthings which are writtenthrough the prophets about the Son of Man will be accomplished.32"10For He will be chanded over to the Gentiles, and will be mocked and mistreated and spit upon,33and after they have scourged Him, they will kill Him; and the thirdday He will riseagain."34
