Yeshua answered, "Faithless and perverse generation, how long will I be with you and bear with you? Bring your son here."
While he was still coming, the demon threw him down and convulsed him violently. But Yeshua rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the boy, and gave him back to his father.
They were all astonished at the majesty of God. But while all were marveling at all the things which Yeshua did, he said to his talmidim,
"Let these words sink into your ears, for the Son of Man will be delivered up into the hands of men."
But they didn't understand this saying. It was concealed from them, that they should not perceive it, and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.
There arose an argument among them about which of them was the greatest.
Yeshua, perceiving the reasoning of their heart, took a little child, and set him by his side,
and said to them, "Whoever receives this little child in my name receives me. Whoever receives me receives him who sent me. For whoever is least among you all, this one will be great."
Yochanan answered, "Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we forbade him, because he doesn't follow with us."
Yeshua said to him, "Don't forbid him, for he who is not against us is for us."
It came to pass, when the days were near that he should be taken up, he intently set his face to go to Yerushalayim,
and sent messengers before his face. They went, and entered into a village of the Shomroni, so as to prepare for him.
They didn't receive him, because he was traveling with his face set towards Yerushalayim.
When his talmidim, Ya`akov and Yochanan, saw this, they said, "Lord, do you want us to command fire to come down from the sky, and destroy them, just as Eliyah did?"
But he turned and rebuked them, "You don't know what kind of spirit you are of.
For the Son of Man didn't come to destroy men's lives, but to save them." They went to another village.
As they went on the way, a certain man said to him, "I want to follow you wherever you go, Lord."
Yeshua said to him, "The foxes have holes, and the birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."
He said to another, "Follow me!" But he said, "Lord, allow me first to go and bury my father."
But Yeshua said to him, "Leave the dead to bury their own dead, but you go and announce the kingdom of God."
Another also said, "I want to follow you, Lord, but first allow me to bid farewell to those who are at my house."
