1 At that time Jesus went through the cornfields one Sabbath day. His disciples were hungry and began to pick ears of corn and eat them.
Deut 23:25 Mark 2:23-28 Luke 6:1-5
2 The Pharisees noticed it and said to him, 'Look, your disciples are doing something that is forbidden on the Sabbath.'
Matt 12:10 John 7:21-24 Exod 20:9-11 Luke 14:3 Mark 3:2-5 Exod 23:12 Exod 31:15-17
3 But he said to them, 'Have you not read what David did when he and his followers were hungry-
1Sam 21:3-6 Luke 6:3 Mark 2:25-26 Mark 12:26 Matt 21:16 Mark 12:10 Matt 12:5
4 how he went into the house of God and they ate the loaves of the offering although neither he nor his followers were permitted to eat them, but only the priests?
Lev 24:5-9 Exod 25:30 Exod 29:32-33 Lev 8:31
5 Or again, have you not read in the Law that on the Sabbath day the Temple priests break the Sabbath without committing any fault?
John 7:22-23 Num 28:9-10 Ezek 24:21 Neh 13:17
6 Now here, I tell you, is something greater than the Temple.
Matt 12:41-42 2Chr 6:18 Col 2:9 Mal 3:1 1Pet 2:4-5 Eph 2:20-22 Hag 2:7-9
7 And if you had understood the meaning of the words: Mercy is what pleases me, not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the blameless.
Hos 6:6 Matt 9:13 Mic 6:6-8 Isa 1:11-17 Acts 13:27 Jas 5:6 Job 32:3
8 For the Son of man is master of the Sabbath.'
Mark 2:28 Luke 6:5 John 5:17-23 Mark 9:4-7 Matt 9:6 1Cor 9:21 1Cor 16:2
9 He moved on from there and went to their synagogue;
Luke 6:6-11 Mark 3:1-6
10 now a man was there with a withered hand. They asked him, 'Is it permitted to cure somebody on the Sabbath day?' hoping for something to charge him with.
Luke 13:14 John 9:16 John 5:10 John 8:6 Luke 11:54 Matt 22:17-18 1Kgs 13:4-6
11 But he said to them, 'If any one of you here had only one sheep and it fell down a hole on the Sabbath day, would he not get hold of it and lift it out?
Deut 22:4 Luke 14:5 Exod 23:4-5 Luke 13:15-17
12 Now a man is far more important than a sheep, so it follows that it is permitted on the Sabbath day to do good.'
Matt 6:26 Luke 6:9 Luke 12:24 Mark 3:4 Matt 10:31
13 Then he said to the man, 'Stretch out your hand.' He stretched it out and his hand was restored, as sound as the other one.
Acts 3:7-8 Luke 13:13
14 At this the Pharisees went out and began to plot against him, discussing how to destroy him.
John 11:53 John 5:18 John 10:39 Luke 6:11 Mark 3:6 John 11:57 Matt 26:4
15 Jesus knew this and withdrew from the district. Many followed him and he cured them all
Matt 10:23 Matt 19:2 1Pet 2:21 Gal 6:9 John 7:1 John 9:4 John 10:40-42
16 but warned them not to make him known.
Matt 8:4 Matt 9:30 Matt 17:9 Luke 5:14-15 Mark 7:36
17 This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah:
Isa 42:1-4 Isa 42:9 Acts 13:27 Isa 41:22-23 Isa 44:26 John 10:35 John 12:38
18 Look! My servant whom I have chosen, my beloved, in whom my soul delights, I will send my Spirit upon him, and he will present judgement to the nations;
Isa 42:1 Luke 4:18 John 3:34 Isa 32:15-16 Acts 10:38 Isa 49:5-6 Isa 61:1-3
19 he will not brawl or cry out, his voice is not heard in the streets,
2Tim 2:24-25 John 18:36-38 2Cor 10:1 Luke 17:20 Matt 11:29 Zech 9:9
20 he will not break the crushed reed, or snuff the faltering wick,
Isa 42:3-4 Ezek 34:16 Isa 61:1-3 Luke 4:18 Ps 147:3 2Kgs 18:21 2Cor 2:7
21 until he has made judgement victorious; in him the nations will put their hope.
Isa 11:10 Col 1:27 Eph 1:12-13 Isa 42:4 Rom 15:12-13
22 Then they brought to him a blind and dumb demoniac; and he cured him, so that the dumb man could speak and see.
Isa 29:18 Acts 26:18 Isa 35:5-6 Isa 32:3-4 Luke 11:14-15 Mark 3:11 Mark 7:35-37
23 All the people were astounded and said, 'Can this be the son of David?'
Matt 9:27 Matt 22:42-43 John 4:29 John 7:40-42 Matt 21:9 Matt 9:33 Matt 15:22
24 But when the Pharisees heard this they said, 'The man drives out devils only through Beelzebul, the chief of the devils.'
Mark 3:22 Matt 9:34 Luke 11:15
25 Knowing what was in their minds he said to them, 'Every kingdom divided against itself is heading for ruin; and no town, no household divided against itself can last.
Gal 5:15 Jer 17:10 Matt 9:4 1Cor 2:11 Isa 9:21 Luke 11:17-22 Mark 3:23-27
26 Now if Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself; so how can his kingdom last?
Col 1:13 1John 5:19 2Cor 4:4 John 12:31 John 14:30 John 16:11 Matt 4:10
27 And if it is through Beelzebul that I drive devils out, through whom do your own experts drive them out? They shall be your judges, then.
Acts 19:13-16 Luke 9:49-50 Luke 11:19 Mark 9:38-39 Matt 12:41-42 Luke 19:22 Rom 3:19
28 But if it is through the Spirit of God that I drive out devils, then be sure that the kingdom of God has caught you unawares.
Luke 11:20 Acts 10:38 Col 1:13 Dan 2:44 Dan 7:14 Isa 9:6-7 Mark 1:15
29 'Or again, how can anyone make his way into a strong man's house and plunder his property unless he has first tied up the strong man? Only then can he plunder his house.
Mark 3:27 Isa 53:12 Isa 49:24 Luke 11:21-22 1John 3:8 1John 4:4 Rev 12:7-10
30 'Anyone who is not with me is against me, and anyone who does not gather in with me throws away.
Luke 11:23 Mark 9:40 Luke 9:50 2Cor 6:15-16 Josh 24:15 Matt 6:24 1John 2:19
31 And so I tell you, every human sin and blasphemy will be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.
Luke 12:10 Mark 3:28-30 1John 5:16 Heb 6:4 Heb 10:26 Heb 10:29 Matt 12:31-32
32 And anyone who says a word against the Son of man will be forgiven; but no one who speaks against the Holy Spirit will be forgiven either in this world or in the next.
Mark 3:29 Eph 1:21 Matt 11:19 1Tim 1:13 Heb 6:4-6 Heb 10:26-29 John 7:12
33 'Make a tree sound and its fruit will be sound; make a tree rotten and its fruit will be rotten. For the tree can be told by its fruit.
Luke 6:43-44 Matt 7:16-20 Amos 5:15 Ezek 18:31 Jas 4:8 John 15:4-7 Luke 11:39-40
34 You brood of vipers, how can your speech be good when you are evil? For words flow out of what fills the heart.
Luke 6:45 Matt 15:18 1John 3:10 1Sam 24:13 Eph 4:29 Jas 3:5-8 John 8:44
35 Good people draw good things from their store of goodness; bad people draw bad things from their store of badness.
Col 4:6 Prov 25:11-12 Col 3:16 Prov 15:28 Matt 12:34 Matt 13:52 Prov 15:4
36 So I tell you this, that for every unfounded word people utter they will answer on Judgement Day,
Eccl 12:14 Rev 20:12 Jude 1:14-15 Rom 2:16 Eph 6:4-6
37 since it is by your words you will be justified, and by your words condemned.'
Prov 13:3 Jas 2:21-25
38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees spoke up. 'Master,' they said, 'we should like to see a sign from you.'
1Cor 1:22 John 2:18 Mark 8:11-12 Luke 11:16 John 4:48 John 6:30 Luke 11:29
39 He replied, 'It is an evil and unfaithful generation that asks for a sign! The only sign it will be given is the sign of the prophet Jonah.
Matt 16:4 Luke 11:29-32 Isa 57:3 Jas 4:4 Mark 8:38
40 For as Jonah remained in the belly of the sea-monster for three days and three nights, so will the Son of man be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights.
Jonah 1:17 Matt 16:21 John 2:19 Matt 17:23 Matt 27:63-64 Jonah 2:2-6 Matt 27:40
41 On Judgement Day the men of Nineveh will appear against this generation and they will be its condemnation, because when Jonah preached they repented; and look, there is something greater than Jonah here.
Matt 12:42 Heb 11:7 Matt 12:6 Ezek 16:51-52 Isa 54:17 Jer 3:11 Jonah 1:2
42 On Judgement Day the Queen of the South will appear against this generation and be its condemnation, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and look, there is something greater than Solomon here.
1Kgs 10:1-13 2Chr 9:1-12 Heb 1:2-4 1Kgs 10:24 1Kgs 5:12 Acts 8:27-28 Isa 7:14
43 'When an unclean spirit goes out of someone it wanders through waterless country looking for a place to rest, and cannot find one.
Luke 11:24-26 Amos 8:11-13 Ezek 47:8-12 Isa 35:6-7 Isa 41:18 Job 1:7 Job 2:2
44 Then it says, "I will return to the home I came from." But on arrival, finding it unoccupied, swept and tidied,
1Cor 11:19 1John 2:19 1John 4:4 1Tim 6:4-5 1Tim 6:9-10 2Thess 2:9-12 Acts 5:1-3
45 it then goes off and collects seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and set up house there, and so that person ends up worse off than before. That is what will happen to this wicked generation.'
Heb 6:4-8 Mark 5:9 Heb 10:26-31 Luke 11:26 Mark 16:9 2Pet 2:14-22 Jude 1:10-13
46 He was still speaking to the crowds when suddenly his mother and his brothers were standing outside and were anxious to have a word with him.
Acts 1:14 Gal 1:19 John 2:12 Matt 13:55 1Cor 9:5 John 7:3 John 7:5
47 still speaking to the crowds when suddenly his mother and his brothers were standing outside and were anxious to have a word with him.
48 But to the man who told him this Jesus replied, 'Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?'
2Cor 5:16 Deut 33:9 Matt 10:37 John 2:3-4 Luke 2:49 Luke 2:52 Mark 3:32-33
49 And stretching out his hand towards his disciples he said, 'Here are my mother and my brothers.
John 17:8-9 John 17:20 John 20:17-20 Mark 3:34 Matt 28:7
50 Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.'
