it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus
that all the world should be enrolled.
2 (And this enrollment was the first which was made when
Quirinius, was governor of
3 And all went to be enrolled, every one into his own city.
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of
Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem,
because he was of the house and lineage of David,
5 To be enrolled with Mary his betrothed, being then with
6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were
accomplished that she should be delivered.
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in
swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them
in the inn.
8 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising
of the child, his name was called JESUS.
9 And when they had performed all things according to the law
of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city
10 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled
with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
when he was twelve years old, they went up to
, unto the feast according to the custom.
12 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned,
the child Jesus tarried behind in
; and his parents knew not of it.
13 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went
a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances.
14 And when they found him not, they turned back again to
, seeking him.
15 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him
in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both hearing them, and
asking them questions.
16 And all that heard him were astonished at his
understanding and answers.
17 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother
said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I
have sought thee sorrowing.
18 And he went down with them, and came to
, and was subject unto them.
19 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature.
in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being
governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip
tetrarch of Ituraea and of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,
21 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests,
22 Appeared John the Baptist in the wilderness.
23 Now the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a
leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
24 Then went out to him
, and all Judaea, and all the region round about
25 And were baptized of him in
cometh Jesus from Galilee to
unto John, to be baptized of him.
27 And Jesus himself, when he began his ministry, was about
thirty years of age.
28 After this he went down to
, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued
there a few days.
the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to
30 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and
doves, and the changers of money sitting:
31 And when he had made a scourge of cords, he drove them all
out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’
coins, and overthrew their tables;
32 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things
hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.
33 After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the
; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.
when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;
35 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John,
and bound him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife: for
he had married her.
36 For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to
have thy brother’s wife.
37 Therefore Herodias had a grudge against him, and would
have killed him; but she could not:
38 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and
holy, and protected him; and when he heard him, he was sore perplexed, yet he
heard him gladly.
39 And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his
birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief men of Galilee;
40 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and
danced, she pleased Herod and them that sat with him; and the king said unto the
damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.
41 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I
will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.
42 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I
ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.
43 And she came in immediately with haste unto the king, and
asked, saying, I will that thou give me straightway in a charger the head of
John the Baptist.
44 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath’s
sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not refuse her.
45 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and
commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
46 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the
damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.
they went into
; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.
48 And they were astonished at his teaching: for he taught
them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn fields; and his
disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn and to eat.
50 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold,
thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day.
51 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did,
when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;
52 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the
shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with
him, but only for the priests?
53 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath
days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are guiltless?
when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:
55 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered.
And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they
might accuse him.
56 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you,
that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he
not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
57 How much then is a man of more value than a sheep!
Wherefore it is lawful to do good on the sabbath days.
58 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and
not man for the sabbath.
the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy
60 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence:
and great multitudes followed him.
it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and
continued all night in prayer to God.
62 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and
of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;
63 Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother,
James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
64 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon
called the Zealot,
65 And Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became
66 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain; and
there was a great company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out
of all Judaea and
, and from the sea coast of
, which came to hear him.
