33 And as these [men, Moses and Elijah] were leaving Him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is delightful and good for us to be here; we should make three [sacred] tents; one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah”—not realizing what he was saying. 49 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. 60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. How long shall I be with you and put up with you? 47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him. Because of the religious conflict between Samaritans and Jews, the people of Samaria were generally inhospitable to Jews and did not offer overnight accommodations to those who were traveling to Jerusalem to participate in religious events. 16 Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and He looked up to heaven [and gave thanks] and blessed them, and broke them and kept giving them to the disciples to set before the crowd. 40 I begged Your disciples to cast it out, but they could not.” 41 Jesus answered, “You unbelieving and perverted generation! 55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 25 For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world [wealth, fame, success], and loses or forfeits himself? But Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the boy and gave him back to his father. 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that city [to go to another]. 52 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. The women and children were not included in this estimate.

He gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to heal sicknesses. (K) 47 But Jesus, knowing what they were thinking in their heart, took a child and had him stand beside Him, 48 and He told them, “Whoever welcomes this child in My name welcomes Me; and whoever welcomes Me [also] welcomes Him who sent Me; for the one who is least among all of you [that is, the one who is genuinely humble—the one with a realistic self-view]—he is the one who is [truly] great.”, 49 John replied, “Master, we saw someone driving out demons in Your name; and we tried to stop him because he does not follow along with us.”(L) 50 But Jesus told him, “Do not stop him; for he who is not against you is for you.”(M). Peter answering said, The Christ of God. (I) 38 And a man from the crowd shouted for help, “Teacher, I beg You to look at my son, because he is my only child; 39 and a spirit seizes him, and suddenly he cries out, and it throws him into a convulsion so that he foams at the mouth; and only with [great] difficulty does it leave him, mauling and bruising him as it leaves. 51 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem. 46 An argument started among them as to which of them might be the greatest [surpassing the others in esteem and authority]. But while they were still awed by everything Jesus was doing, He said to His disciples, 44 “Let these words sink into your ears: the Son of Man is going to be betrayed and handed over to men [who are His enemies].” 45 However, they did not understand this statement. 23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. “You do not know what kind of spirit you are; “Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head.”, dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and spread the news about the kingdom of God.”, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back. 24 For whoever wishes to save his life [in this world] will [eventually] lose it [through death], but whoever loses his life [in this world] for My sake, he is the one who will save it [from the consequences of sin and separation from God].
