And He went into the congregation again, and a man who had a withered hand was there.
And they were watching Him, whether He would heal him on the Sabbath, so as to accuse Him.
And He said to the man who had the withered hand, 'Get up to the middle.'
And He said to them, 'Is it right to do good on the Sabbath, or to do evil, to save life or to kill?' But they remained silent.
And having looked around on them with displeasure, being grieved at the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, 'Stretch out your hand.' And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored as healthy as the other.
And the Pharisees went out and immediately plotted with the Herodians against Him, how to destroy Him.
Crowds Follow Jesus...
But Yahushua withdrew with His taught ones to the sea. And a great crowd from Galil followed Him, and from Yehudah.
Even from Yerushalayim, and from Edom and beyond the Yarden, and those around Tsor and Tsidon, a large crowd came to Him when they heard how much He was doing.
And He spoke to His taught ones, that a small boat should be kept ready for Him because of the crowd, lest they should press upon Him.
For He healed many, so that as many as had afflictions fell upon Him to touch Him.
And the unclean spirits, whenever they saw Him, fell down before Him and cried out, saying, `You are the Son of Elohim.`
But He warned them many times that they should not make Him known.
The Appointing of the Twelve Apostles...
And He went up on the mountain and called to Him whom He wished, and they came to Him.
And He appointed twelve to be with Him, and to be sent out to proclaim,
and to possess authority to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons.
And He appointed the twelve: Shim'on, to whom He added the name Kepha;
and Ya'aqob the son of Zabdai, and Yohanan the brother of Ya'aqob, to whom He added the name Beni-Reges, that is, 'Sons of Thunder,'
and Andri, and Philip, and Bartholomi, and Mattithyahu, and T'oma, and Ya'aqob son of Alphai, and Taddai, and Shim'on the Kena'anite;
and Yehudah from Qerioth, who did also deliver Him up. And they went into a house,
Jesus and Beelzebub...
and again the crowd came together, so that they were unable even to eat bread.
And when His relatives heard about this, they went out to seize Him, for they said, 'He is out of His mind.'
And the scribes who came down from Yerushalayim said, 'He has Be'elzebul,' and, 'He casts out demons by the ruler of the demons.'
And calling them near He said to them in parables, 'How is Satan able to cast out Satan?
'And if a reign is divided against itself, that reign is unable to stand.
'And if a house is divided against itself, that house is unable to stand.
'And if Satan has risen up against himself, and is divided, he is unable to stand, but has an end.
'No one is able to enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man, and then he shall plunder his house.
'Truly, I say to you, all the sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they speak,
but he who blasphemes against the Set-apart Spirit has no forgiveness forever, but is subject to everlasting judgment,'
because they said, 'He has an unclean spirit.'
Jesus` Mother and Brothers...
And His brothers and His mother came, and standing outside they sent to Him, calling Him.
And a crowd was sitting around Him. And they said to Him, 'See, Your mother and Your brothers are outside seeking You.'
But He answered them, saying, 'Who is My mother, or My brothers?'
And looking about on those sitting round Him, He said, 'See My mother and My brothers!
'For whoever does the desire of Elohim is My brother and My sister and mother.'
