1 At this time the disciples came to Jesus and said, 'Who is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?'
Luke 9:46-48 Matt 20:20-28 Luke 22:24-27 Mark 9:33-37 Mark 10:14-15 Mark 10:35-45 Matt 23:11
2 So he called a little child to him whom he set among them.
1Kgs 3:7 Matt 19:13-14 Jer 1:7 Mark 9:36-37
3 Then he said, 'In truth I tell you, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.
1Pet 2:2 Mark 10:14-15 Matt 19:14 Ps 131:2 1Cor 14:20 Luke 18:16-17 Jas 5:19-20
4 And so, the one who makes himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven.
Matt 23:11-12 Jas 4:10 Luke 9:48 Luke 14:11 1Pet 5:5 Mark 10:43 Matt 18:1
5 'Anyone who welcomes one little child like this in my name welcomes me.
Gal 4:14 Matt 25:40 John 13:20 Luke 9:48 Luke 17:1-2 Mark 9:37 Mark 9:41
6 But anyone who is the downfall of one of these little ones who have faith in me would be better drowned in the depths of the sea with a great millstone round his neck.
Mark 9:42 Rom 14:13-15 1Cor 10:32-33 2Thess 1:6-9 Matt 18:10 Ps 105:15 1Cor 8:9-13
7 Alas for the world that there should be such causes of falling! Causes of falling indeed there must be, but alas for anyone who provides them!
Luke 17:1 1Cor 11:19 Matt 26:24 1Sam 2:17 1Sam 2:22-25 1Tim 4:1-3 1Tim 5:14-15
8 'If your hand or your foot should be your downfall, cut it off and throw it away: it is better for you to enter into life crippled or lame, than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire.
Matt 5:29-30 Deut 13:6-8 Isa 33:14 Luke 16:24 Luke 18:22-23 Matt 25:41 Matt 25:46
9 And if your eye should be your downfall, tear it out and throw it away: it is better for you to enter into life with one eye, than to have two eyes and be thrown into the hell of fire.
Matt 5:22 Matt 5:29 Matt 18:8 Acts 14:22 Heb 4:11 Luke 9:24-25 Mark 9:47
10 'See that you never despise any of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in heaven are continually in the presence of my Father in heaven.
Heb 1:14 Ps 91:11 Ps 34:7 Acts 12:7-11 Gen 32:1-2 2Kgs 6:16-17 Ps 17:15
12 'Tell me. Suppose a man has a hundred sheep and one of them strays; will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hillside and go in search of the stray?
Luke 15:4-7 Ezek 34:12 Ezek 34:28 Ezek 34:6 Ezek 34:16 Jer 50:6 Matt 12:11
13 In truth I tell you, if he finds it, it gives him more joy than do the ninety-nine that did not stray at all.
Jas 2:13 John 4:34-36 Zeph 3:17 Isa 53:11 Isa 62:5 Jer 32:37-41 Luke 15:5-10
14 Similarly, it is never the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost.
2Pet 3:9 John 6:39-40 John 10:27-30 John 17:12 1Cor 8:11-13 1Pet 1:3-5 2Tim 2:10
15 'If your brother does something wrong, go and have it out with him alone, between your two selves. If he listens to you, you have won back your brother.
Lev 19:17 2Thess 3:15 Col 3:13 Luke 17:3-4 Gal 6:1 Matt 18:35 Rom 12:21
16 If he does not listen, take one or two others along with you: whatever the misdemeanour, the evidence of two or three witnesses is required to sustain the charge.
Deut 19:15 1Tim 5:19 2Cor 13:1 Heb 10:28 John 8:17 Num 35:30 Deut 17:6
17 But if he refuses to listen to these, report it to the community; and if he refuses to listen to the community, treat him like a gentile or a tax collector.
2Thess 3:6 2Thess 3:14-15 1Cor 5:3-5 3John 1:9-10 1Cor 5:9-7 Eph 5:11-12 2Cor 2:6-7
18 'In truth I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
Matt 16:19 2Cor 2:10 John 20:23 Rev 3:7-8 1Cor 5:4-5 Acts 15:23-31
19 'In truth I tell you once again, if two of you on earth agree to ask anything at all, it will be granted to you by my Father in heaven.
Matt 7:7 1John 5:14-16 Phil 1:19 Jas 5:14-16 John 15:7 Matt 21:22 John 14:13-14
20 For where two or three meet in my name, I am there among them.'
1Cor 5:4 John 20:26 Rev 21:3 Matt 28:20 Zech 2:5 Exod 20:24 Gen 49:10
21 Then Peter went up to him and said, 'Lord, how often must I forgive my brother if he wrongs me? As often as seven times?'
Luke 17:3-4 Matt 18:15
22 Jesus answered, 'Not seven, I tell you, but seventy-seven times.
Col 3:13 Matt 6:14-15 Eph 4:31-1 Mark 11:25 Eph 4:26 Matt 6:11-12 Rom 12:21
23 'And so the kingdom of Heaven may be compared to a king who decided to settle his accounts with his servants.
Matt 13:24 Rom 14:12 Luke 16:1-2 Luke 19:12-27 Matt 3:2 Matt 13:31 Matt 13:33
24 When the reckoning began, they brought him a man who owed ten thousand talents;
Luke 16:5 Ps 38:4 Ezra 9:6 Luke 13:4 Ps 40:12 Ps 130:3-4 1Chr 29:7
25 he had no means of paying, so his master gave orders that he should be sold, together with his wife and children and all his possessions, to meet the debt.
2Kgs 4:1 Neh 5:5 Lev 25:39 Luke 7:42 Isa 50:1 Neh 5:8 Exod 21:2
26 At this, the servant threw himself down at his master's feet, with the words, "Be patient with me and I will pay the whole sum."
Luke 7:43 Matt 8:2 Matt 18:29 Rom 10:3
27 And the servant's master felt so sorry for him that he let him go and cancelled the debt.
Ps 145:8 Hos 11:8 Judg 10:16 Neh 9:17 Ps 86:15 Ps 78:38 Ps 86:5
28 Now as this servant went out, he happened to meet a fellow-servant who owed him one hundred denarii; and he seized him by the throat and began to throttle him, saying, "Pay what you owe me."
Matt 20:2 Deut 15:2 Ezek 45:9 Neh 5:10-11 Neh 10:31 Isa 58:3 Neh 5:7
29 His fellow-servant fell at his feet and appealed to him, saying, "Be patient with me and I will pay you."
Matt 18:26 Matt 6:12 Phlm 1:18-19
30 But the other would not agree; on the contrary, he had him thrown into prison till he should pay the debt.
1Kgs 21:27-29 1Kgs 22:27
31 His fellow-servants were deeply distressed when they saw what had happened, and they went to their master and reported the whole affair to him.
Luke 14:21 Rom 12:15 Gen 37:2 Heb 13:3 Jer 9:1 Luke 19:41 Mark 3:5
32 Then the master sent for the man and said to him, "You wicked servant, I cancelled all that debt of yours when you appealed to me.
Luke 19:22 Matt 25:26 Rom 3:19
33 Were you not bound, then, to have pity on your fellow-servant just as I had pity on you?"
Col 3:13 Eph 4:32-2 Matt 6:12 Luke 6:35-36 Matt 5:44-45
34 And in his anger the master handed him over to the torturers till he should pay all his debt.
Matt 5:25-26 Jas 2:13 2Thess 1:8-9 Luke 12:58-59 Matt 18:30 Rev 14:10-11
35 And that is how my heavenly Father will deal with you unless you each forgive your brother from your heart.'
Luke 6:37-38 Mark 11:25 Matt 6:14-15 Jas 2:13 Matt 6:12 Matt 7:1-2 Jas 3:14
