NRS 11 When the crowds found out about it, they followed him; and he welcomed them, and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed to be cured. CEB 12 When the day was almost over, the Twelve came to him and said, "Send the crowd away so that they can go to the nearby villages and countryside and find lodging and food, because we are in a deserted place." NRS 12 The day was drawing to a close, and the twelve came to him and said, "Send the crowd away, so that they may go into the surrounding villages and countryside, to lodge and get provisions; for we are here in a deserted place." CEB 13 He replied, "You give them something to eat." But they said, "We have no more than five loaves of bread and two fish—unless we go and buy food for all these people."

Peter answered, "The Christ sent from God." NRS 20 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered, "The Messiah of God."

CEB 26 Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Human One will be ashamed of that person when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.

CEB 27 I assure you that some standing here won't die before they see God's kingdom."

CEB 28 About eight days after Jesus said these things, he took Peter, John, and James, and went up on a mountain to pray. NRS 28 Now about eight days after these sayings Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. CEB 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed and his clothes flashed white like lightning. NRS 29 And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white. CEB 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, were talking with him. NRS 30 Suddenly they saw two men, Moses and Elijah, talking to him. CEB 31 They were clothed with heavenly splendor and spoke about Jesus' departure, which he would achieve in Jerusalem. NRS 31 They appeared in glory and were speaking of his departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. CEB 32 Peter and those with him were almost overcome by sleep, but they managed to stay awake and saw his glory as well as the two men with him. NRS 32 Now Peter and his companions were weighed down with sleep; but since they had stayed awake, they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. CEB 33 As the two men were about to leave Jesus, Peter said to him, "Master, it's good that we're here. We should construct three shrines: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah"—but he didn't know what he was saying. NRS 33 Just as they were leaving him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah"—not knowing what he said. CEB 34 Peter was still speaking when a cloud overshadowed them. As they entered the cloud, they were overcome with awe. NRS 34 While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were terrified as they entered the cloud. CEB 35 Then a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Son, my chosen one. Listen to him!" NRS 35 Then from the cloud came a voice that said, "This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!" CEB 36 Even as the voice spoke, Jesus was found alone. They were speechless and at the time told no one what they had seen. NRS 36 When the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and in those days told no one any of the things they had seen. CEB 37 The next day, when Jesus, Peter, John, and James had come down from the mountain, a large crowd met Jesus. NRS 37 On the next day, when they had come down from the mountain, a great crowd met him. CEB 38 A man from the crowd shouted, "Teacher, I beg you to take a look at my son, my only child. NRS 38 Just then a man from the crowd shouted, "Teacher, I beg you to look at my son; he is my only child. CEB 39 Look, a spirit seizes him and, without any warning, he screams. It shakes him and causes him to foam at the mouth. It tortures him and rarely leaves him alone. NRS 39 Suddenly a spirit seizes him, and all at once he shrieks. It convulses him until he foams at the mouth; it mauls him and will scarcely leave him. CEB 40 I begged your disciples to throw it out, but they couldn't." NRS 40 I begged your disciples to cast it out, but they could not." CEB 41 Jesus answered, "You faithless and crooked generation, how long will I be with you and put up with you? Bring your son here." NRS 41 Jesus answered, "You faithless and perverse generation, how much longer must I be with you and bear with you? Bring your son here." CEB 42 While he was coming, the demon threw him down and shook him violently. Jesus spoke harshly to the unclean spirit, healed the child, and gave him back to his father. NRS 42 While he was coming, the demon dashed him to the ground in convulsions. But Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, healed the boy, and gave him back to his father. CEB 43 Everyone was overwhelmed by God's greatness. While everyone was marveling at everything he was doing, Jesus said to his disciples, NRS 43 And all were astounded at the greatness of God. While everyone was amazed at all that he was doing, he said to his disciples, CEB 44 "Take these words to heart: the Human One is about to be delivered into human hands." NRS 44 "Let these words sink into your ears: The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into human hands." CEB 45 They didn't understand this statement. Its meaning was hidden from them so they couldn't grasp it. And they were afraid to ask him about it. NRS 45 But they did not understand this saying; its meaning was concealed from them, so that they could not perceive it. And they were afraid to ask him about this saying. CEB 46 An argument arose among the disciples about which of them was the greatest. NRS 46 An argument arose among them as to which one of them was the greatest. CEB 47 Aware of their deepest thoughts, Jesus took a little child and had the child stand beside him. NRS 47 But Jesus, aware of their inner thoughts, took a little child and put it by his side, CEB 48 Jesus said to his disciples, "Whoever welcomes this child in my name welcomes me. Whoever welcomes me, welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever is least among you all is the greatest." NRS 48 and said to them, "Whoever welcomes this child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me; for the least among all of you is the greatest." CEB 49 John replied, "Master, we saw someone throwing demons out in your name, and we tried to stop him because he isn't in our group of followers." NRS 49 John answered, "Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he does not follow with us." CEB 50 But Jesus replied, "Don't stop him, because whoever isn't against you is for you." NRS 50 But Jesus said to him, "Do not stop him; for whoever is not against you is for you." CEB 51 As the time approached when Jesus was to be taken up into heaven, he determined to go to Jerusalem. NRS 51 When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. CEB 52 He sent messengers on ahead of him. Along the way, they entered a Samaritan village to prepare for his arrival, NRS 52 And he sent messengers ahead of him. On their way they entered a village of the Samaritans to make ready for him; CEB 53 but the Samaritan villagers refused to welcome him because he was determined to go to Jerusalem. NRS 53 but they did not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem. CEB 54 When the disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to consume them?" NRS 54 When his disciples James and John saw it, they said, "Lord, do you want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?" CEB 55 But Jesus turned and spoke sternly to them, NRS 55 But he turned and rebuked them. CEB 56 and they went on to another village. NRS 56 Then they went on to another village. CEB 57 As Jesus and his disciples traveled along the road, someone said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go." NRS 57 As they were going along the road, someone said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go." CEB 58 Jesus replied, "Foxes have dens and the birds in the sky have nests, but the Human One has no place to lay his head." NRS 58 And Jesus said to him, "Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head." CEB 59 Then Jesus said to someone else, "Follow me." He replied, "Lord, first let me go and bury my father." NRS 59 To another he said, "Follow me." But he said, "Lord, first let me go and bury my father." CEB 60 Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead. But you go and spread the news of God's kingdom." NRS 60 But Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God." CEB 61 Someone else said to Jesus, "I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say good-bye to those in my house." NRS 61 Another said, "I will follow you, Lord; but let me first say farewell to those at my home." CEB 62 Jesus said to him, "No one who puts a hand on the plow and looks back is fit for God's kingdom." NRS 62 Jesus said to him, "No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God."
