412-413  : Jesus Walks On Water,Jesus Quotes Isaiah,Jesus Foretells The crucifixion

JESUS sent the multitudes away, and asked his disciples to get into a boat
and to go ahead of him to the other side of the lake toward Capernaum.
 Then he went up into a mountain to pray, and when the evening came, he was there alone.
But the boat was now in the midst of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was against them.
And in the fourth watch of the night, Jesus went to them, walking on the sea.
When the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled and said,
"It is a spirit." And they cried out for fear.
 But Jesus spoke to them, saying, "Be of good cheer. It is I. Be not afraid."
Peter answered him and said, "Lord, if it is you, let me come to you on the water."
"Come," he said. And Peter came down out of the boat, and he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
But when he saw the strong wind, he was afraid and began to sink.
"Lord, save me," he cried, and immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand and caught him, and said to him,
 "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
And when they had come into the boat, the wind ceased.
Then they that were in the boat worshipped him, saying "Truly you are the Son of God." 


When they had crossed the water, they came into the land of Gennesaret,
and when the men of that place learned of him, they brought to him all that were diseased,
 and asked that they might only touch the hem of his garment.
 And as many as touched it were made perfectly well.
Then scribes and Pharisees from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying,

"Why do your disciples revolt against the tradition of the elders? They do not wash their hands when they eat bread."
He answered and said, "You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying:
" 'This people honours me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. And in vain do they worship me,
teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.'
 For, laying aside the commandments of God, you hold to the tradition of men,
attending to such little things as the washing of pots and cups."
Then he called the multitude and said to them, "Hear, and understand. Not that which goes into the mouth,
but that which comes out of the mouth, does harm to a man."
Then his disciples came and said to him,
"Did you know that the Pharisees were offended after they heard this saying?" But he answered and said:
"Every plant which my heavenly Father has not planted shall be rooted up Let them alone.
They are blind,leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."
"Explain to us this parable," Peter said to him. And Jesus said:
"Are you also still without understanding?
 Do you still not understand that whatever goes in at the mouth goes only into the belly.
But those things which come out of the mouth come forth from the heart, and they defile a man.
 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, wrongdoing, thefts, blasphemies, false witness.
 These are the things which defile a man. But to eat with unwashed hands defiles no one."
From there, Jesus went into Tyre and Sidon.
Then he returned to the sea of Galilee, through the region of the Decapolis.
Next he came in a ship to Dalmanutha, then to Bethsaida. In all these places he preached and healed.

And when Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples,
 "Who do men say that I, the Son of man, am?"
 And they said, "Some say you are John the Baptist, some, Elijah, and others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets."
"But who do you say that I am?" he asked.
And Simon Peter answered and said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
Jesus said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood have not revealed it to you,
 but my Father who is in heaven.
"And I say also to you that You are Peter, the rock, and upon this rock I will build my church.
 And the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
 I will give to you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven,
and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
Then he told his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.


From that time forth, Jesus began to tell his disciples how he must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things
from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
 Then Peter began to rebuke him, saying, "Be it far from true, Lord. This shall not happen to you."
But he turned and said to Peter:
 "Get thee behind me, Satan. You are an offence to me, for you are not concerned with the things of God,
 but those of men."
Then Jesus said to his disciples:
 "If any man wishes to come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
For whoever wishes to save his life, shall lose it, and whoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
 For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?
Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Whoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this indulgent and sinful generation,
of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed,
when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels, to reward every man according to his works."
And he said to them,
"Truly I say to you that there are some of them that stand here who shall not taste of death till they have seen the kingdom of God  come with power."
