WNT 1 Then calling the Twelve together He conferred on them power and authority over all the demons and to cure diseases; NIV 1 When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, WNT 2 and sent them out to proclaim the Kingdom of God and to cure the sick. NIV 2 and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. WNT 3 And He commanded them, "Take nothing for your journey; neither stick nor bag nor bread nor money; and do not have an extra under garment. NIV 3 He told them: "Take nothing for the journey--no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic. WNT 4 Whatever house you enter, make that your home, and from it start afresh. NIV 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town. WNT 5 Wherever they refuse to receive you, as you leave that town shake off the very dust from your feet as a protest against them." NIV 5 If people do not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave their town, as a testimony against them." WNT 6 So they departed and visited village after village, spreading the Good News and performing cures everywhere. NIV 6 So they set out and went from village to village, preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere. WNT 7 Now Herod the Tetrarch heard of all that was going on; and he was bewildered because of its being said by some that John had come back to life, NIV 7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was going on. And he was perplexed, because some were saying that John had been raised from the dead, WNT 8 by others that Elijah had appeared, and by others that some one of the ancient Prophets had come back to life. NIV 8 others that Elijah had appeared, and still others that one of the prophets of long ago had come back to life. WNT 9 And Herod said, "John I have beheaded; but who is this, of whom I hear such reports?" And he sought for an opportunity of seeing Jesus. NIV 9 But Herod said, "I beheaded John. Who, then, is this I hear such things about?" And he tried to see him. WNT 10 The Apostles, on their return, related to Jesus all they had done. Then He took them and withdrew to a quiet retreat, to a town called Bethsaida. NIV 10 When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus what they had done. Then he took them with him and they withdrew by themselves to a town called Bethsaida, WNT 11 But the immense crowd, aware of this, followed Him; and receiving them kindly He proceeded to speak to them of the Kingdom of God, and those who needed to be restored to health, He cured. NIV 11 but the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing. WNT 12 Now when the day began to decline, the Twelve came to Him and said, "Send the people away, that they may go to the villages and farms round about and find lodging and a supply of food; because here we are in an uninhabited district." NIV 12 Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, "Send the crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here." WNT 13 "You yourselves," He said, "must give them food." "We have nothing," they replied, "but five loaves and a couple of fish, unless indeed we were to go and buy provisions for all this host of people." NIV 13 He replied, "You give them something to eat." They answered, "We have only five loaves of bread and two fish--unless we go and buy food for all this crowd." WNT 14 (For there were about 5,000 adult men.) But He said to His disciples, "Make them sit down in parties of about fifty each." NIV 14 (About five thousand men were there.) But he said to his disciples, "Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each." WNT 15 They did so, making them all, without exception, sit down. NIV 15 The disciples did so, and everybody sat down. WNT 16 Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to Heaven He blessed them and broke them into portions which He gave to the disciples to distribute to the people. NIV 16 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to set before the people. WNT 17 So they ate and were fully satisfied, all of them; and what they had remaining over was gathered up, twelve baskets of fragments. NIV 17 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. WNT 18 One day when He was praying by Himself the disciples were present; and He asked them, "Who do the people say that I am?" NIV 18 Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, "Who do the crowds say I am?" WNT 19 "John the Baptist," they replied; "but others say Elijah; and others that some one of the ancient Prophets has come back to life." NIV 19 They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life." WNT 20 "But you," He asked, "who do you say that I am?" "God's Anointed One," replied Peter. NIV 20 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "The Christ of God." WNT 21 And Jesus strictly forbad them to tell this to any one; NIV 21 Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone. WNT 22 and He said, "The Son of Man must suffer much cruelty, be rejected by the Elders and High Priests and Scribes, and be put to death, and on the third day be raised to life again." NIV 22 And he said, "The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life." WNT 23 And He said to all, "If any one is desirous of following me, let him ignore self and take up his cross day by day, and so be my follower. NIV 23 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. WNT 24 For whoever desires to save his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake shall save it. NIV 24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. WNT 25 Why, what benefit is it to a man to have gained the whole world, but to have lost or forfeited his own self. NIV 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ? WNT 26 For whoever shall have been ashamed of me and my teachings, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own and the Father's glory and in that of the holy angels. NIV 26 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. WNT 27 I tell you truly that there are some of those who stand here who will certainly not taste death till they have seen the Kingdom of God." NIV 27 I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God." WNT 28 It was about eight days after this that Jesus, taking with Him Peter, John, and James, went up the mountain to pray. NIV 28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. WNT 29 And while He was praying the appearance of His face underwent a change, and His clothing became white and radiant. NIV 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. WNT 30 And suddenly there were two men conversing with Him, who were Moses and Elijah. NIV 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, WNT 31 They came in glory, and kept speaking about His death, which He was so soon to undergo in Jerusalem. NIV 31 appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem. WNT 32 Now Peter and the others were weighed down with sleep; but, keeping themselves awake all through, they saw His glory, and the two men standing with Him. NIV 32 Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him. WNT 33 And when they were preparing to depart from Him, Peter said to Jesus, "Rabbi, we are thankful to you that we are here. Let us put up three tents--one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." He did not know what he was saying. NIV 33 As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, "Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah." (He did not know what he was saying.) WNT 34 But while he was thus speaking, there came a cloud which spread over them; and they were awe-struck when they had entered into the cloud. NIV 34 While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. WNT 35 Then there came a voice from within the cloud: "This is My Son, My Chosen One: listen to Him." NIV 35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him." WNT 36 After this voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. They kept it to themselves, and said not a word to any one at that time about what they had seen. NIV 36 When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. The disciples kept this to themselves, and told no one at that time what they had seen. WNT 37 On the following day, when they were come down from the mountain, a great crowd came to meet Him; NIV 37 The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him. WNT 38 and a man from the crowd called out, "Rabbi, I beg you to pity my son, for he is my only child. NIV 38 A man in the crowd called out, "Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for he is my only child. WNT 39 At times a spirit seizes him and he suddenly cries out. It convulses him, and makes him foam at the mouth, and does not leave him till it has well-nigh covered him with bruises. NIV 39 A spirit seizes him and he suddenly screams; it throws him into convulsions so that he foams at the mouth. It scarcely ever leaves him and is destroying him. WNT 40 I entreated your disciples to expel the spirit, but they could not." NIV 40 I begged your disciples to drive it out, but they could not." WNT 41 "O unbelieving and perverse generation!" replied Jesus; "how long shall I be with you and bear with you? Bring your son here to me." NIV 41 "O unbelieving and perverse generation," Jesus replied, "how long shall I stay with you and put up with you? Bring your son here." WNT 42 Now while the youth was coming, the spirit dashed him to the ground and cruelly convulsed him. But Jesus rebuked the foul spirit, and cured the youth and gave him back to his father. NIV 42 Even while the boy was coming, the demon threw him to the ground in a convulsion. But Jesus rebuked the evil spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father. WNT 43 And all were awe-struck at the mighty power of God. And while every one was expressing wonder at all that He was doing, He said to his disciples, NIV 43 And they were all amazed at the greatness of God. While everyone was marveling at all that Jesus did, he said to his disciples, WNT 44 "As for you, store these my sayings in your memory; for, before long, the Son of Man will be betrayed into the hands of men." NIV 44 "Listen carefully to what I am about to tell you: The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men." WNT 45 But they did not understand His meaning: it was veiled from them that they might not perceive it, and they were afraid to ask Him about it. NIV 45 But they did not understand what this meant. It was hidden from them, so that they did not grasp it, and they were afraid to ask him about it. WNT 46 Now there arose a dispute among them, which of them was to be the greatest. NIV 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. WNT 47 And Jesus, knowing the reasoning that was in their hearts, took a young child and made him stand by His side NIV 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him. WNT 48 and said to them, "Whoever for my sake receives this little child, receives me; and whoever receives me, receives Him who sent me. For the lowliest among you all--he is the greatest." NIV 48 Then he said to them, "Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all--he is the greatest." WNT 49 "Rabbi," replied John, "we have seen a man making use of your name to expel demons; and we forbad him, because he does not come with us." NIV 49 "Master," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us." WNT 50 "Do not forbid him," said Jesus, "for he who is not against you is on your side." NIV 50 "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you." WNT 51 Now when the time drew near for Him to be received up again into Heaven, He proceeded with fixed purpose towards Jerusalem, and sent messengers before Him. NIV 51 As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. WNT 52 They went and entered a village of the Samaritans to make ready for Him. NIV 52 And he sent messengers on ahead, who went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him; WNT 53 But the people there would not receive Him, because He was evidently going to Jerusalem. NIV 53 but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem. WNT 54 When the disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Master, do you wish us to order fire to come down from Heaven and consume them?" NIV 54 When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them ?" WNT 55 But He turned and rebuked them. NIV 55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them, WNT 56 And they went to another village. NIV 56 and they went to another village. WNT 57 And, as they proceeded on their way, a man came to Him and said, "I will follow you wherever you go." NIV 57 As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go." WNT 58 "The foxes have holes," said Jesus, "and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head." NIV 58 Jesus replied, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head." WNT 59 "Follow me," He said to another. "Master," the man replied, "allow me first to go and bury my father." NIV 59 He said to another man, "Follow me." But the man replied, "Lord, first let me go and bury my father." WNT 60 "Leave the dead," Jesus rejoined, "to bury their own dead; but you must go and announce far and wide the coming of the Kingdom of God." NIV 60 Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God." WNT 61 "Master," said yet another, "I will follow you; but allow me first to go and say good-bye to my friends at home." NIV 61 Still another said, "I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say good-by to my family." WNT 62 Jesus answered him, "No one who has put his hand to the plough, and then looks behind him, is fit for the Kingdom of God. NIV 62 Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."
