Mar. And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them. And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, aud running to him, saluted him. And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
Mat. And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come and restore all things:
But I say unto you, that Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed:
Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
Mar. And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh irst, and restoreth all things,
And how it is written (i. e. told them how it is written) of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought. But I say unto you, that Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.

And one of the multitude answered and said,
Mat. Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is lunatic, and sore vexed:
For oft-times he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. See Mark, ver. 22. Mar. Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit:
And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him. Luke Master, I beseech thee look upon my son, for he is mine only child, And lo, a spirit taketh him,
"And he suddenly crieth out, and it teareth him, -Luke That he foameth again, and bruising him, hardly departeth from him.

Mar. He answered him and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you?
How long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me. 41 Luke And Jesus answering, said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you,
And suffer you? Bring thy son hither.
42 Luke And as he was yet a-coming,
The devil threw him down, and tare him.

Mar. And he fell on the ground, and wallowed, foaming, And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child. And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters to destroy him: (See Matt. ver. 15.) but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. Mar. When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee come out of him, and enter no more unto him.

And he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
Luke And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit,

Mar. And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately,
Why could not we cast him out?
Mat. Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said,

9 43 Luke And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God:
Luke But while they wondered every one at all things 44 which Jesus did,

Mat. And while they abode in Galilee,
Mar. And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it. For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, Mar. The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, And they shall kill him, and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.
Mat. The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of
And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again.

Sect. 74. The didrachmas are paid in Capernaum. The parable of the servant debtors. Mar. And he came to Capernaum,
Mat. And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the Kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money, that take, and give unto them for me and thee. 46 Luke Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be the greatest. (Or rather, Now there had arisen a dispute, &c. namely, as they went into Capernaum. See Mark, ver. 33.)
Mar. And being in the house, he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way? But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves who should be the greatest. And he sat down and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the -ame shall be last of all, and servant of all.
