NIV 11 Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. NIRV 12 But I tell you, Elijah has already come. People didn't recognize him. They have done to him everything they wanted to do. In the same way, they are going to make the Son of Man suffer."

NIV 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” NIRV 20 He replied, "Because your faith is much too small. What I'm about to tell you is true. If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, it is enough. You can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there.' And it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." NIV 20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move.

Do they collect from their own sons or from others?" NIV 25 “Yes, he does,” he replied. When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. “What do you think, Simon?” he asked. “From whom do the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes—from their own children or from others?” NIRV 26 "From others," Peter answered. "Then the sons don't have to pay," Jesus said to him. NIV 26 “From others,” Peter answered. “Then the children are exempt,” Jesus said to him. NIRV 27 "But we don't want to make them angry.

NIV 27 “But so that we may not cause offense, 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.”
