1 And now once again a great crowd had gathered, and they had nothing to eat. So he called his disciples to him and said to them,
Matt 15:32-39 Mark 6:34-44
2 'I feel sorry for all these people; they have been with me for three days now and have nothing to eat.
Matt 9:36 Mark 6:34 Matt 4:2-4 Matt 6:32-33 Mic 7:19 Ps 145:15 Heb 2:17
3 If I send them off home hungry they will collapse on the way; some have come a great distance.'
1Sam 14:28-31 1Sam 30:10-12 Isa 40:31 Judg 8:4-6
4 His disciples replied, 'Where could anyone get these people enough bread to eat in a deserted place?'
2Kgs 4:42-44 2Kgs 7:2 John 6:7-9 Mark 6:36-37 Mark 6:52 Matt 15:33 Num 11:21-23
5 He asked them, 'How many loaves have you?' And they said to him, 'Seven.'
Matt 14:15-17 Luke 9:13 Mark 6:38 Matt 15:34
6 Then he instructed the crowd to sit down on the ground, and he took the seven loaves, and after giving thanks he broke them and began handing them to his disciples to distribute; and they distributed them among the crowd.
1Cor 10:30-31 1Sam 9:13 Col 3:17 John 2:5 John 6:10-11 John 6:23 Luke 9:14-15
7 They had a few small fishes as well, and over these he said a blessing and ordered them to be distributed too.
Matt 14:19 John 21:5 John 21:8-9 Luke 6:41 Luke 24:41-42
8 They ate as much as they wanted, and they collected seven basketfuls of the scraps left over.
2Kgs 4:42-44 1Kgs 17:14-16 2Kgs 4:2-7 John 6:11-13 John 6:27 John 6:32-35 John 6:47-58
9 Now there had been about four thousand people. He sent them away
10 and at once, getting into the boat with his disciples, went to the region of Dalmanutha.
11 The Pharisees came up and started a discussion with him; they demanded of him a sign from heaven, to put him to the test.
Matt 12:38 Luke 11:16 1Cor 1:22-23 1Cor 10:9 Acts 5:9 Deut 6:16 Exod 17:2
12 And with a profound sigh he said, 'Why does this generation demand a sign? In truth I tell you, no sign shall be given to this generation.'
Mark 7:34 Isa 53:3 John 11:33-38 John 12:37-43 Luke 11:29-30 Luke 16:29-31 Luke 19:41
13 And, leaving them again, he re-embarked and went away to the other side.
Acts 13:45-46 Acts 18:6 Hos 4:17 Hos 9:12 Jer 23:33 John 8:21 John 12:36
14 The disciples had forgotten to take any bread and they had only one loaf with them in the boat.
15 Then he gave them this warning, 'Keep your eyes open; look out for the yeast of the Pharisees and the yeast of Herod.'
1Cor 5:6-8 Mark 12:13 Matt 16:6 1Chr 28:9-10 1Chr 28:20 1Tim 5:21 1Tim 6:13
16 And they said to one another, 'It is because we have no bread.'
Luke 9:46 Luke 20:5 Matt 16:7-8
17 And Jesus knew it, and he said to them, 'Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not understand, still not realise? Are your minds closed?
Mark 6:52 Heb 4:12-13 Heb 5:11-12 Isa 63:17 John 2:24-25 John 16:30 John 21:17
18 Have you eyes and do not see, ears and do not hear? Or do you not remember?
Acts 28:26-27 Mark 4:12 Jer 5:21 Matt 13:14-15 Ezek 12:2 John 12:40 Rom 11:8
19 When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of scraps did you collect?' They answered, 'Twelve.'
John 6:5-13 Luke 9:12-17 Mark 6:38-44 Matt 14:17-21
20 'And when I broke the seven loaves for the four thousand, how many baskets full of scraps did you collect?' And they answered, 'Seven.'
Matt 15:34-38 Mark 8:1-9
21 Then he said to them, 'Do you still not realise?'
Mark 6:52 1Cor 6:5 1Cor 15:34 John 14:9 Mark 8:12 Mark 8:17 Mark 9:19
22 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought to him a blind man whom they begged him to touch.
Matt 11:21 Mark 6:45 John 12:21 Luke 10:13 Mark 2:3 Matt 8:3 Matt 8:15
23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. Then, putting spittle on his eyes and laying his hands on him, he asked, 'Can you see anything?'
Mark 7:33 Acts 9:8 John 9:6-7 Mark 5:23 Heb 8:9 Isa 44:2 Isa 51:18
24 The man, who was beginning to see, replied, 'I can see people; they look like trees as they walk around.'
1Cor 13:9-12 Isa 29:18 Isa 32:3 Judg 9:36
25 Then he laid his hands on the man's eyes again and he saw clearly; he was cured, and he could see everything plainly and distinctly.
1Pet 2:9 2Pet 3:18 Matt 13:12 Phil 1:6 Prov 4:18
26 And Jesus sent him home, saying, 'Do not even go into the village.'
Matt 8:4 Mark 5:43 Mark 7:36 Mark 8:23 Matt 9:30 Matt 12:16
27 Jesus and his disciples left for the villages round Caesarea Philippi. On the way he put this question to his disciples, 'Who do people say I am?'
Luke 9:18-20 Matt 16:13-20
28 And they told him, 'John the Baptist, others Elijah, others again, one of the prophets.'
John 1:21 Mal 4:5 Matt 14:2 Luke 9:7-9 Mark 6:14-16 Mark 9:11-13 Matt 16:14
29 'But you,' he asked them, 'who do you say I am?' Peter spoke up and said to him, 'You are the Christ.'
John 11:27 John 6:69 1John 4:15 1John 5:1 Acts 9:20 John 4:42 Luke 9:20
30 And he gave them strict orders not to tell anyone about him.
Luke 9:21 Matt 16:20 Mark 9:9 Mark 7:36 Mark 8:26 Matt 8:4
31 Then he began to teach them that the Son of man was destined to suffer grievously, and to be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and to be put to death, and after three days to rise again;
Hos 6:2 John 2:19 Luke 17:25 Luke 24:26 Mark 10:33-34 Mark 12:10 Matt 12:40
32 and he said all this quite openly. Then, taking him aside, Peter tried to rebuke him.
John 16:25 Matt 16:22 John 16:29 John 13:6-8 John 18:20 Luke 10:40 Mark 4:38
33 But, turning and seeing his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said to him, 'Get behind me, Satan! You are thinking not as God thinks, but as human beings do.'
Matt 4:10 1John 2:15 Phil 3:19 1Cor 5:5 1Pet 4:1 1Tim 5:20 2Sam 19:22
34 He called the people and his disciples to him and said, 'If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross and follow me.
Matt 10:38 John 10:27 Luke 14:26-27 1Kgs 14:8 Num 14:24 Gal 2:20 Gal 5:24
35 Anyone who wants to save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.
2Tim 1:8 1Cor 9:23 2Tim 2:11-13 Luke 17:33 Matt 10:39 Matt 19:29 1Pet 4:12-16
36 What gain, then, is it for anyone to win the whole world and forfeit his life?
Luke 9:25 Jas 1:9-11 Phil 3:7-9 Matt 16:26 Ps 49:17 Job 22:2 Rom 6:21
37 And indeed what can anyone offer in exchange for his life?
Ps 49:7-8 1Pet 1:18-19
38 For if anyone in this sinful and adulterous generation is ashamed of me and of my words, the Son of man will also be ashamed of him when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.'
