Jesus' ministry of healing and deliverance.
Jesus speaks again about His death While everyone was amazed at all the things He was dong, He told His disciples. Let these words sink in; the Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men.
But they did not understand this statement; it was concealed from them so that they could not grasp it, and they were afraid to ask Him about it.
Payment of the Temple tax When he went into the house, Jesus spoke to him first, "What do you think, Simon? Who do earthly kings collect tariffs or taxes from? From their sons or from strangers?"
"From strangers" he said.
Then the sons are free," Jesus told him. But so we won't offend them, go to the sea, cast in a fish hook, and catch the first fish that comes up. When you open its mouth you'll find a coin, Take it and gfive it to them for Me and you.
Who's the greatest? Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
"Then He called a child to Him and had him stand among them. I assure you, He said "Unless you are converted and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child this one is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one child like this in My name welcomes Me.
Causes of sin For everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is good, but if the salt should lose its flavour, how can you make it salty? Have salt among yourselves and be at peace with one another.
The parable of the lost sheep
John is rebuked Don't stop him. said Jesus, Because there is no one who will perform a miracle in My name who can soon afterwards speak evil of Me. For whoever is not against us is for us. And whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because of My name, since you belong to Messiah - I assure you; He will never lose his reward.
Teaching on forgiveness and prayer. I assure you; Whatever you bind on earth is already bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth is already loosed in heaven. Again, I assure you; If two of you on earth agree about any matter that you pray for, it will be done for you by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there among them.
The greatest among you will be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted' Matthew 23: 11-12
