20 "Because of your little faith," He told them. "For I assure you: If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will tell this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. [ 20 He replied, "Because you have so little faith.

21 However, this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting.]" 21 When they came together in Galilee, he said to them, "The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men.

25 "Yes," he said. When he went into the house, Jesus spoke to him first, "What do you think, Simon? Who do earthly kings collect tariffs or taxes from? From their sons or from strangers?" 25 "From others," Peter answered. "Then the sons are exempt," Jesus said to him.
26 "From strangers," he said. "Then the sons are free," Jesus told him. 26 "But so that we may not offend them, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours."
