Luke 9:18-50

NLT 18 One day Jesus left the crowds to pray alone. Only his disciples were with him, and he asked them, “Who do people say 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?" NLT 19 “Well,” they replied, “some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say you are one of the other ancient prophets risen from the dead.” 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." NLT 20 Then he asked them, “But who do you say I am?” Peter replied, “You are the Messiah sent from God!” NIV 20 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "The Christ of God." NLT 21 Jesus warned his disciples not to tell anyone who he was. NIV 21 Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone. NLT 22 “The Son of Man must suffer many terrible things,” he said. “He will be rejected by the elders, the leading priests, and the teachers of religious law. He will be killed, but on the third day he will be raised from the dead.” 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." NLT 23 Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. 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. NLT 24 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. NIV 24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. NLT 25 And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but are yourself lost or destroyed? NIV 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ? NLT 26 If anyone is ashamed of me and my message, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in his glory and in the glory of the Father and 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. NLT 27 I tell you the truth, some standing here right now will not die before they see 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." NLT 28 About eight days later Jesus took Peter, John, and James up on a 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. NLT 29 And as he was praying, the appearance of his face was transformed, and his clothes became dazzling white. NIV 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. NLT 30 Suddenly, two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared and began talking with Jesus. NIV 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, NLT 31 They were glorious to see. And they were speaking about his exodus from this world, which was about to be fulfilled 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. NLT 32 Peter and the others had fallen asleep. When they woke up, they saw Jesus’ 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. NLT 33 As Moses and Elijah were starting to leave, Peter, not even knowing what he was saying, blurted out, “Master, it’s wonderful for us to be here! Let’s make three shelters as memorials —one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” 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.) NLT 34 But even as he was saying this, a cloud overshadowed them, and terror gripped them as the cloud covered them. NIV 34 While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. NLT 35 Then a voice from the cloud said, “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." NLT 36 When the voice finished, Jesus was there alone. They didn’t tell anyone at that time 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. NLT 37 The next day, after they had come down the mountain, a large crowd met Jesus. NIV 37 The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him. NLT 38 A man in the crowd called out to him, “Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, 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. NLT 39 An evil spirit keeps seizing him, making him scream. It throws him into convulsions so that he foams at the mouth. It batters him and hardly ever leaves him alone. 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. NLT 40 I begged your disciples to cast out the spirit, but they couldn’t do it.” NIV 40 I begged your disciples to drive it out, but they could not." NLT 41 Jesus said, “You faithless and corrupt people! How long must I be with you and put up with you?” Then he said to the man, “Bring your son here.” 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." NLT 42 As the boy came forward, the demon knocked him to the ground and threw him into a violent convulsion. But Jesus rebuked the evil spirit and healed the boy. Then he gave him back to his father. NIV 42 Even while the boy was coming, the demon threw him to the ground in a convulsion.

While everyone was marveling at all that Jesus did, he said to his disciples, NLT 44 “Listen to me and remember what I say. The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of his enemies.” 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." NLT 45 But they didn’t know what he meant. Its significance was hidden from them, so they couldn’t understand 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. NLT 46 Then his disciples began arguing about which of them was the greatest. NIV 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. NLT 47 But Jesus knew their thoughts, so he brought a little child to his side. NIV 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him. NLT 48 Then he said to them, “Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me also welcomes my Father who sent me. Whoever is the least among you 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." NLT 49 John said to Jesus, “Master, we saw someone using your name to cast out demons, but we told him to stop because he isn’t in our group.” 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." NLT 50 But Jesus said, “Don’t stop him! Anyone who is not against you is for you.” NIV 50 "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you."
