The Seventy Return and Report
Interwoven Gospels

Now the seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Thy name!' And He said to them, "I beheld Satan fallen as lightning out of the heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall in any wise injure you. Yet rejoice not in this, that the spirits are subject to you; but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."

In the same hour, Jesus rejoiced greatly in the Holy Spirit, and said, "I thank Thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because Thou didst hide these things from wise and sagacious men and didst reveal them to babes: yea, Father, for so it was well pleasing in Thy sight. All things were delivered to Me by My Father; and no one knoweth who the Son is, but the Father, and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son may choose to reveal Him."

And turning to the disciples privately, He said, "Blessed are the eyes that see what ye are seeing. For I say to you, that many prophets and kings desired to see what ye are seeing, and saw them not, and to hear what you are hearing, and heard them not!"
