Jesus Heals a Paralytic
(Mark 2:1–12; Luke 5:17–26)

1And he entered the ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.

2And behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed. And Jesus, seeing their faith, said to the palsied man: Son, be of good courage; your sins are forgiven you. 3And behold, some of the scribes said within themselves: This man talks impiously. 4And Jesus, perceiving their thoughts, said: "Why do evil thoughts arise in your hearts? 5For, which is easier, to say, Your sins are forgiven; or to say, Arise, and walk? 6But that you may know that the Son of man on earth has authority to forgive sins (then he said to the palsied man): Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house. 7And he arose, and departed to his house. 8And when the multitude saw it, they were astonished, and glorified God, who had given such authority to men.

Jesus Calls Matthew
(Mark 2:13–17; Luke 5:27–32)

9And as Jesus passed by from that place, he saw a man named Matthew, sitting at the custom-house; and he said to him: Follow me. And he arose and followed him.

10And it came to pass that, while Jesus was reclining at table in his house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and reclined at table with him and his disciples. 11And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to his disciples: "Why does your teacher eat with publicans and sinners? 12When Jesus heard it, he said to them: Those who are in health have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13But go and learn what this means: I desire mercy, and not sacrifice. For I came not to call righteous men, but sinners to repentance.

Questions about Fasting
(Mark 2:18–20; Luke 5:33–35)

14Then came to him the disciples of John, saying: Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples fast not? 15And Jesus said to them: Can the sons of the bride-chamber mourn while the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then will they fast.

The Patches and the Wineskins
(Mark 2:21–22; Luke 5:36–39)

16No one puts a patch of new cloth on an old garment; for that which is put in to fill it up, takes from the garment, and a worse rent is made. 17Nor do men put new wine into old bottles; if so, the bottles burst, and the wine runs out, and the bottles are lost. But they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

The Healing Touch of Jesus
(Mark 5:21–43; Luke 8:40–56)

18While he was speaking these things to them, behold, a certain ruler came and did him homage, saying: My daughter is already dead; but come, lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. 19And Jesus and his disciples arose and followed him.

20And behold, a woman that had been diseased with an issue of blood for twelve years, came behind him, and touched the fringe of his mantle. 21For she said within herself: If I may only touch his mantle, I shall be saved. 22But Jesus turned, and saw her, and said: Daughter, be of good courage; your faith has saved you. And the woman was saved from that hour.

23And when Jesus came into the house of the ruler, and saw the minstrels and the multitude making lamentation,

24he said to them: Depart; for the maid is not dead, but sleeps. And they derided him. 25But when the multitude had been sent out, he went in, and took the maiden by the hand, and she arose. 26And the fame of this went abroad in all that land.

Jesus Heals the Blind and Mute
(Mark 7:31–37)

27And as Jesus was departing thence, two blind men followed him, crying out and saying: Son of David, have mercy on us. 28And when he had entered the house, the blind men came to him. And Jesus said to them: Do you believe that I am able to do this? They said to him, Yes, Lord. 29Then he touched their eyes, and said: According to your faith, be it to you. 30And their eyes were opened; and Jesus strictly charged them, saying: See that no one know it, 31But they went out and spread his fame abroad in all that land.

32And as they were going out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a demon. 33And after the demon had been cast out, the dumb man spoke. And the multitudes were astonished, and said: Never was it seen thus in Israel. 34But the Pharisees said: He casts out the demons by the prince of the demons.

The Lord of the Harvest
(Luke 10:1–12)

35And Jesus went through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every infirmity.

36And when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them, because they were troubled and scattered as sheep that had no shepherd. 37Then he said to his disciples: The harvest is abundant, but the laborers are few. 38Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
