As it is written "Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way before you.""The voice of one crying in the wilderness: prepare the wayof the lord make his path straight' "John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.John preached "there comes one after me who is mightier than I, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loose. I indeed baptized you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John. He immediately came up from the water and saw the heavens part and the Holy Spirit descended on him like a dove. Then a voice came from heaven "You are my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased.'Then Jesus was tempted by the devil when he was in the wilderness for forty days, and he was confronted with wild beasts which the ang ...view middle of the document...

And again Jesus entered Capernaum after some days, and it was heard that he was in the house.Immediately many gathered together and he preached the word to them.Then they came to him, bringing a paralytic who was carried by four men. But it was so crowed that they couldn't get in, so they made a hole in the roof where Jesus was staying then they let down the bed where he paralytic was lying.When Jesus saw there faith he said "Son, your sins are forgiven you."The scribes were siting there and reasoning in their hearts, "Why does this man speak blasphemies like this?"But immediately, when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they were reasoning thus within themselves, he said to them, "Why do you reason about these things in your heart?Which is easier to say to a paralytic 'Your sins are forgiven you' or to say, 'Arise take up your bed and walk'?"But that you may know that the Son of Man has the power on earth to forgive sins"Then he said to the paralytic "I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house."Immediately he arose, took up his bed and went out in the presence of them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, "We never saw anything like this!'As he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus siting at the tax collectors office. And said "Follow Me." So he arose and followed him.He was dining at Levi's house which many sinners and tax collectors also sat together, and his disciples said, "How is it that he eats and drinks with sinners and tax collectors?"When Jesus heard it, he said, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but the sinners, to repentance."Now the disciples began to pluck the heads of grain on the Sabbath. And the Pharisees said to him, "Look, why do they do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?"But he said to them, "Have you never read what David did when he was in need and hungry, he arose with those who were with him: "How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiatar the high priest, and ate the showbread, which is not lawful to eat except for the priests, and also gave to those who were with him?"And he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not the man for the Sabbath. Therefore the Son of Man is also lord of the Sabbath."
