Messiah Scriptures



Matthew 1: (Back)

§ 1 This book of the generation of Messiah Yeshua, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 2 Abraham begot Isaac; and Isaac begot Jacob; and Jacob begot Judas and his brethren; 3 and Judas begot Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begot Esrom; and Esrom begot Aram; 4 and Aram begot Aminadab; and Aminadab begot Naasson; and Naasson begot Salmon; 5 and Salmon begot Booz of Rachab; and Booz begot Obed of Ruth; and Obed begot Jesse; 6 and Jesse begot David the king; and David the king begot Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias. 7 Solomon begot Roboam; and Roboam begot Abia; and Abia begot Asa; 8 and Asa begot Josaphat; and Josaphat begot Joram; and Joram begot Ozias; 9 and Ozias begot Joatham; and Joatham begot Achaz; and Achaz begot Ezekias; 10 and Ezekias begot Manasses; and Manasses begot Amon; and Amon begot Josias; 11 and Josias begot Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon. 12 After they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begot Salathiel; and Salathiel begot Zorobabel; 13 and Zorobabel begot Abiud; and Abiud begot Eliakim; and Eliakim begot Azor; 14 and Azor begot Sadoc; and Sadoc begot Achim; and Achim begot Eliud; 15 and Eliud begot Eleazar; and Eleazar begot Matthan; and Matthan begot Jacob; 16 and Jacob begot Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Yeshua, who is called Messiah. 17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Messiah Yeshua, are fourteen generations. § {Geneologies}
18 Now, the birth of Messiah Yeshua was on this wise: When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with Child of the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately. 20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of The Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying: Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take unto yourself Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit, 21 and she shall bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name, Yeshua {Salvation}, for He shall save His people from their sins! 22 Now, all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of The Lord, by the prophet, saying: 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His name {designation} Immanuel, which being interpreted is, Elohim with us! (Isa 7:14) 24 Then Joseph, being raised from sleep, did as the angel of The Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife, 25 and knew her not until she had brought forth her firstborn Son, and he called His name Yeshua!

Matthew 2: (Back)

1 Now, when Yeshua was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2 saying: Where is He that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the east, and come to worship Him. 3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Messiah should be born. 5 And they said unto him: In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet: 6 Bethlehem in the land of Judah, you are not the least among the princes of Judah, for out of you shall come a Governor that shall rule My people Israel! (Mic 5:2) 7 Then Herod, when he had privately called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem and said: Go and search diligently for the young Child, and when you have found Him, bring me word again that I may come and worship Him also. 9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, until it came and stood over where the young Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. 11 And when they came into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him, and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold and frankincense and myrrh. 12 But being warned by Elohim in a dream, that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way. 13 When they were departed, behold, the angel of The Lord appears to Joseph in a dream, saying: Arise and take the young Child and His mother, and flee into Egypt, and you all wait there until I bring you word, for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him! 14 When he arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night, and departed into Egypt, 15 and was there until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of The Lord by the prophet, saying: Out of Egypt have I called My Son! (Hos 11:1) 16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men. 17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying: 18 In Rama there was a voice heard; lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning; Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they were no more! (Jer 31:15) 19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of The Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, 20 saying: Arise, and take the young Child and His mother, and go into the land of Israel, for they are dead which sought the young Child's life! 21 So he arose and took the young Child and His mother, and came into the land of Israel. 22 But when he heard that Archelaus reigned in Judea, in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there; notwithstanding, being warned of Elohim in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee. 23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by prophets: He shall be called a Nazarene.

Matthew 3: (Back)

1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, 2 and saying: Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. 3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying: The voice of one crying in the wilderness; prepare the way of The Lord; make His paths straight! (Isa 40:3) 4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leather girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then went out to him, Jerusalem, and all Judea, and the entire region round about Jordan, 6 and were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins. 7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them: O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits right for repentance, 9 and think not to say within yourselves: We have Abraham as our father! For I say unto you that Adonai is able, from these stones, to raise up children unto Abraham. 10 And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees. Therefore, every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire; 12 whose fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly purge His floor, and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. 13 Then comes Yeshua from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbids Him, saying: I have the need to be baptized of You, and You come to me? 15 And Yeshua answering said unto him: Suffer it to be so now, for thus it becomes us to fulfill all righteousness! Then he suffered Him. 16 And Yeshua, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water; and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of Elohim descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him: 17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying: This is My beloved Son, in whom I Am well pleased!

Matthew 4: (Back)

1 When Yeshua was led up of the Spirit, into the wilderness, He was tempted by the devil. 2 Once He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He was afterward hungered. 3 When the tempter came to Him, he said: If you are the Son of Elohim, command that these stones be made bread! 4 But He answered and said: It is written: Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of Elohim! (Deu 8:3) 5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city and set Him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said unto Him: If you are the Son of Elohim, cast yourself down, for it is written: He shall give His angels charge concerning You, and, in their hands they shall bear You up, lest at any time You dash Your foot against a stone! (Psa 91:11–12) 7 Yeshua said unto him: It is written again: You shall not tempt Adonai your Elohim! (Deu 6:16) 8 Again, the devil took Him up into an exceeding high mountain, and shown Him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them, 9 and said unto Him: All these things will I give You, if You will fall down and worship me! 10 Then said Yeshua unto him: Get thee hence, Satan, for it is written: You shall worship Adonai your Elohim, and Him only shall you serve! (Deu 6:13) 11 Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered unto Him. 12 Now, when Yeshua had heard that John was cast into prison He departed into Galilee. 13 And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim: 14 That it might be fulfilled, which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: 15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles, 16 the people that sat in darkness saw great light, and to them that sat in the region and shadow of death light are sprung up! (Isa 9:1–2) 17 From that time, Yeshua began to preach and to say: Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! 18 And Yeshua, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishers. 19 And He said unto them: Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men! 20 And they straightway left their nets and followed Him. 21 And going on from there, He saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them, 22 and they immediately left the ship, and their father, and followed Him. 23 So Yeshua went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24 And His fame went throughout all Syria, and they brought unto Him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and He healed them. 25 And there followed Him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judea, and from beyond Jordan.

Matthew 5: (Back)

1 And seeing the multitudes, He went up into a mountain, and when He was set, His disciples came unto Him: 2 And He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: 3 Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. 4 Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled. 7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see Elohim. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of Elohim. 10 Blessed are they that are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. 11 Blessed are you, when men shall revile you and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in Heaven; for so they persecuted the prophets that were before you. 13 You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt has lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is henceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and trodden under the foot of men. 14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick, so it gives light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father, which is in Heaven. 17 Think not that I have come to destroy Torah or of the Prophets: I have not come to destroy, but to fulfill! 18 Amen, I say unto you: Until heaven and Earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the Torah, until all is fulfilled! (Rom 13:8–10; Gal 5:14) 19 Whoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven; but whoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. 20 For I say unto you that; except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 21 You have heard that it was said by them of old time: You shall not kill; and, whoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment! (Exo 20:13; Deu 5:17) 22 But I say unto you, that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment, and whoever shall say to his brother, Raca! shall be in danger of the council, but whoever shall say, you fool! shall be in danger of hell fire! 23 Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar, and there, remember that your brother has ought against you, 24 leave there your gift before the altar, and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are in the way with him, lest at any time the adversary delivers you to the judge, and the judge delivers you to the officer, and you are cast into prison. 26 Amen, I say unto you: You shall by no means come out there until you have paid the uttermost farthing. 27 You have heard that it was said by them of old time: You shall not commit adultery! (Exo 20:14; Deu 5:18) 28 But I say unto you that whoever looks on a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery with her already in his heart. 29 Therefore, if your right eye offends you, pluck it out and cast it from you, for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not your whole body to be cast into hell. 30 And if your right hand offends you, cut it off and cast it from you, for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into hell. 31 It has been said: Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement! 32 But I say unto you that whoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causes her to commit adultery, and whoever shall marry her that is divorced commits adultery. 33 Again, you have heard that it has been said by them of old time: You shall not forswear yourself, but shall perform unto The Lord your oaths! 34 But I say unto you: Swear not at all, neither by Heaven, for it is the throne of Elohim: 35 Nor by Earth, for it is His footstool: Neither by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 Neither shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 But let your communication be; Yea, yea! and, Nay, nay! For whatsoever is more than these comes of evil. 38 You have heard that it has been said: An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth! 39 But I say unto you that you resist not evil, but whoever shall smite you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if anyone will sue you in court, and take away your coat, let him have your cloak also! 41 And whoever shall compel you to go one mile, go with him two! 42 Give to him that asks you, and from him that would borrow of you, turn him not away. 43 You have heard that it has been said: You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy! 44 But I say unto you: Love your enemies; bless them that curse you; do good to them that hate you; pray for them that spitefully use you and persecute you; 45 so that you may be the children of your Father which is in Heaven, for He makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust! 46 For if you love them that love you, what reward have you? Do not even the publicans do the same? 47 And if you salute your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the publicans do so? 48 Therefore, you be perfect, even as your Father in Heaven is perfect!

Matthew 6: (Back)

1 Take heed that you do not your alms before men, to be seen of them, otherwise you have no reward of your Father, which is in Heaven. 2 Therefore, when you do your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Amen, I say unto you: They have their reward! 3 But when you do alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand does, 4 that your alms may be in secret, and your Father which sees in secret, Himself shall reward you openly. 5 And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Amen, I say unto you: They have their reward! 6 But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door and pray to your Father, which is in secret; your Father, which sees in secret, shall reward you openly. 7 But when you pray, use not vain repetitions as the heathens do, for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8 Be not therefore, like unto them, for your Father knows what things you have need of even before you ask. 9 After this manner therefore, you pray: Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your name. 10 May Your Kingdom come so Your will can be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread, 12 and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the Kingdom of power and of glory, forever: Amen! 14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. 16 Moreover, when you fast, do not be as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance, for they disfigure their faces that they may appear unto men to fast. Amen, I say unto you: They have their reward! 17 But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face so 18 that you appear not unto men to fast, but unto your Father which is in secret, and your Father, which sees in secret, shall reward you openly. 19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon Earth, where moth and rust does corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where neither moth nor rust can corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also! 22 The light of the body is the eye; if therefore your eye is single, your whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if your eye is evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! 24 No one can serve two masters, for either they will forsake the one and love the other, or else they will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve Elohim and mammon! 25 Therefore I say unto you: Take no thought for your life; what you shall eat or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than meat and the body more than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air, for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why do you take thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin, 29 and yet I say unto you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Therefore, if Elohim so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore, take no thought, saying: What shall we eat? Or: What shall we drink? Or: With what shall we be clothed? 32 For after all these things do the worldly seek! For your Heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. 33 But you, seek first the Kingdom of YHVH and its righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for tomorrow, for tomorrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof!

Matthew 7: (Back)

1 Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged, and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why do you behold the mote that is in your brother's eye, but do not consider the beam that is in your own eye? 4 Or how will you say to your brother: Let me pull out the mote out of your eye; and behold, a beam is in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite! First cast out the beam out of your own eye, and then you shall see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother's eye. 6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet and turn again and rend you. 7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For everyone that asks, receives; and he that seeks, finds; and to him that knocks, it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then being evil, knows how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father, which is in Heaven, give good things to them that ask Him? 12 Therefore, all things whatsoever you would that men should do to you; you do even so to them, for this is Torah and the Prophets. 13 Enter in at the strait gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it: 14 Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it! 15 Beware of false prophets, which comes to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit; neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore, by their fruits you shall know them! 21 Not everyone that says unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but those that do the will of My Father which is in Heaven. 22 Many will say to Me on that Day: Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name? And in Your name have cast out devils? And in Your name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them: I never knew you! Depart from Me, you that work iniquity. 24 Therefore, whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken them unto a wise man who built his house upon a rock: 25 The rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house; yet it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And everyone that hears these sayings of Mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 The rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it! 28 It came to pass, when Yeshua had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at His doctrine, 29 for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Matthew 8: (Back)

1 When He came down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. 2 And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying: Lord, if You will, You can make me clean. 3 And Yeshua put forth His hand and touched him, saying: I will; you, be clean! And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4 Then Yeshua said unto him: See that you tell no man; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 5 When Yeshua was entering into Capernaum, there came to Him a centurion, beseeching Him 6 and saying: Lord, my servant lies at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7 So Yeshua said unto him: I will come and heal him! 8 The centurion answered and said: Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof, but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. I say to this man: Go! And he goes; and to another: Come! And he comes; and to my servant: Do this! And he does it. 10 When Yeshua heard it, He marveled, and said to them that followed: Amen, I say unto you; I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, in the Kingdom of Heaven. 12 But the children of this kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness; there, shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13 Then Yeshua said unto the centurion: Go your way; and as you have believed, so be it done unto you. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour. 14 When Yeshua came into Peter's house, He saw his wife's mother, laid and sick of a fever. 15 So He touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she arose and ministered unto them. 16 When the evening came, they brought unto Him, many that were possessed with devils, and He cast out the spirits with His word, and healed all that were sick, 17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: Himself took our infirmities, and bore our sicknesses! (Isa 53:4) 18 Now, when Yeshua saw great multitudes about Him, He gave commandment to depart unto the other side. 19 A certain scribe came and said unto Him: Master, I will follow You wherever You go. 20 But Yeshua said unto him: The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head. 21 And another of His disciples said unto him: Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 22 But Yeshua said unto him: Follow Me, and let the dead bury their dead! 23 When He had entered into a ship, His disciples followed Him. 24 And behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, so that the ship was covered with the waves; but He was asleep. 25 So His disciples came to Him and woke Him, saying: Lord save us, we perish! 26 But He said unto them: Why are you fearful, O you of little faith? Then He arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27 The men marveled, saying: What manner of Man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him! 28 And when He came to the other side into the country of the Gadarenes, there met Him, two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceedingly fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. 29 And behold, they cried out, saying: What have we to do with You, Yeshua, Son of Elohim? Have You come here to torment us before the time? 30 And there was a good way off from them, a herd of many swine feeding. 31 So the devils besought Him, saying: If you cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. 32 And He said unto them: Go! And when they came out, they went into the herd of swine: And behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters. 33 And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told everything, and what was befallen to those possessed of the devils. 34 And behold, the whole city came out to meet Yeshua, and when they saw Him, they besought Him that He would depart out of their coasts.

Matthew 9: (Back)

1 So He entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into His own city. 2 And behold, they brought to Him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed, and Yeshua, seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy: Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you. 3 And behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves: This Man blasphemes! 4 So Yeshua, knowing their thoughts, said: Why do you think evil in your hearts? 5 For whether is easier to say: Your sins be forgiven you; or to say: Arise and walk? 6 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on Earth to forgive sins: (this He said to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up your bed, and go unto your house. 7 And he arose and departed to his house. 8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marveled and glorified Elohim, which had given such power unto men. 9 As Yeshua passed forth from there, He saw a man named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom, and He said unto him: Follow Me! And he arose and followed Him. 10 And it came to pass, as Yeshua sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto His disciples: Why does your Master eat with publicans and sinners? 12 But when Yeshua heard that He said unto them: They that are whole do not need a physician, but they that are sick. 13 But you, go and learn what this means: I will have mercy, and not sacrifice! (Hos 6:6) For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 14 Then came to Him the disciples of John, saying: Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but Your disciples do not fast? 15 And Yeshua said unto them: Can the children of the bride chamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast. 16 No man puts a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up, took from the garment, and the rent is made worse. 17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles, or else the bottles break and the wine runs out, and the bottles perish; but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved. 18 While He spoke these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshiped Him, saying: My daughter is even now dead; but come and lay your hand upon her, and she shall live. 19 And Yeshua arose and followed him, as did His disciples. 20 And behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind Him, and touched the hem of His garment. 21 For she said within herself: If I may but touch His garment I shall be whole! 22 But Yeshua turned around, and when He saw her He said: Daughter, be of good comfort; your faith has made you whole! And the woman was made whole from that hour. 23 And when Yeshua came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise, 24 He said unto them: Give place, for the maid is not dead, but sleeps! And they laughed Him to scorn. 25 But when the people were put forth, He went in and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. 26 And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land. 27 When Yeshua departed there, two blind men followed Him, crying and saying: Son of David, have mercy on us. 28 And when He came into the house, the blind men came to Him, and Yeshua said unto them: Do you believe that I Am able to do this? They said unto Him: Yea Lord! 29 Then He touched their eyes, saying: According to your faith, be it unto you! 30 And their eyes were opened, and Yeshua directly charged them, saying: See that no man knows it! 31 But they, when they departed, spread abroad His fame in all that country. 32 As they went out, behold, they brought to Him a mute man possessed with a devil. 33 And when the devil was cast out, the mute spoke, and the multitudes marveled, saying: It was never so seen in Israel. 34 But the Pharisees said: He casts out devils through the prince of the devils! 35 And Yeshua went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad as sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said unto His disciples: The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few; 38 pray therefore, The Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into His harvest.

Matthew 10: (Back)

1 And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. 2 Now, the names of the twelve apostles are these; the first, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him. 5 These twelve Yeshua sent forth, and commanded them saying: Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans, do not enter. 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel: 7 And as you go, preach saying: The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and cast out devils: Freely you have received; freely give! 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10 nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves; for the workman is worthy of his meat. 11 And into whatsoever city or town you shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and there abide until you go there. 12 And when you come into a house, salute it. 13 And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it, but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And whoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. 15 Amen, I say unto you: It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment, than for that city. 16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: Therefore, you be as wise as serpents and harmless as doves! 17 But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues, 18 and you shall be brought before governors and kings for My sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. 19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what you shall speak; for it shall be given to you in that same hour what you shall speak. 20 For it is not you that speaks, but the Spirit of your Father that speaks in you. 21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child, and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. 22 You shall be hated by all for My Name's sake, but those that endure to the end shall be Saved! 23 But when they persecute you in this city, you flee into another, for verily I say unto you: You shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, until the Son of Man has come. 24 The disciple is not above his teacher, nor is the slave above his owner. 25 It is enough for the disciple that he is as his teacher, and the slave be as his owner. If they have called the master of the house, Beelzebub, how much more the children of that household? 26 Fear them not therefore, for there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; or hid that shall not be made known. 27 What I tell you in darkness, you speak that in light, and what you hear in the ear; that, you preach upon the housetops. 28 And fear not that, which can kill the body, but are unable to kill the soul: But rather, fear that which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And yet one of them shall not fall to the ground without your Father; 30 the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not therefore, for you are of more value than many sparrows. 32 Whoever therefore, shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in Heaven. 33 But whoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in Heaven. 34 Think not that I came to send peace on Earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword! 35 For I have come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter–in–law against her mother–in–law, 36 and a man's foes shall be they of his own household! (Mic 7:6) 37 He that loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me, and he that loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me! 38 And he that takes not his cross and follows after Me is not worthy of Me! 39 He that finds his life shall lose it, and he that loses his life for My sake shall find it! 40 He that receives you, receives Me, and he that receives Me, receives Him that sent Me! 41 He that receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. 42 And whoever shall give drink unto one of these little ones, a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple; verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

Matthew 11: (Back)

1 And it came to pass, when Yeshua had made an end of commanding His twelve disciples, He departed there to teach and to preach in their cities. 2 Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Messiah, he sent two of his disciples to Him, 3 And said unto Him: Are you He that should come, or do we look for another? 4 Yeshua answered and said unto them: Go; show John again those things, which you do hear and see: 5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 6 And blessed is he, whoever shall not be offended in Me! 7 And as they departed, Yeshua began to say unto the multitudes concerning John: What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? 8 But what did you go out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings houses! 9 But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. 10 For this is he of whom it is written: Behold, I send my messenger before your face, which shall prepare your way before you! (Mal 3:1) 11 Amen, I say unto you: Among them that are born of women there has not risen a greater than John the Baptist: Notwithstanding, he that is least in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he! 12 From the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. 13 For all Prophets and Torah, prophesied until John. 14 And if you will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come. 15 He that has ears to hear, let him hear! 16 But where unto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, 17 and saying: We have piped unto you, and you have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and you have not lamented. 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say: He has a devil! 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say: Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! But wisdom is justified of her children. 20 Then He began to upbraid the cities wherein most of His mighty works were done, because they repented not: 21 Woe unto you, Chorazin! Woe unto you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I say unto you: It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon, on the Day of Judgment, than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, which is exalted unto heaven, shall be brought down to hell; for if the mighty works, which have been done in you, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day! 24 But I say unto you: That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the Day of Judgment, than for you! 25 At that time Yeshua answered and said: I thank You, O Father, Elohim of Heaven and Earth, because You have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them unto babes. 26 Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight! 27 All things are delivered unto Me of My Father, and no one knows the Son, but the Father; neither knows anyone of the Father, save the Son, and those to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him to. 28 Come unto Me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me, for I Am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light!

Matthew 12: (Back)

1 At that time Yeshua went on the sabbath day through the corn; His disciples were hungered and began to pluck the ears of corn to eat. 2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him: Behold, your disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day! 3 But He said unto them: Have you not read what David did, when he was hungered, and they that were with him, 4 how he entered into the house of Elohim, and ate the showbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests? 5 Or have you not read in the Torah, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profaned the sabbath, and are blameless? 6 But I say unto you that in this place, is One greater than the temple! 7 But if you had known what this means: I will have mercy and not sacrifice (Hos 6:6), you would not have condemned the guiltless. 8 For the Son of Man is Lord even of the sabbath day! 9 When He was departed there, He went into their synagogue, 10 and behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked Him, saying: Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? That they might accuse Him! 11 And He said unto them: What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? 12 How much then, is a man better than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. 13 Then He said to the man: Stretch forth your hand! And he stretched forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other. 14 Then the Pharisees went out and held a council against Him, how they might destroy Him. 15 But when Yeshua knew it, He withdrew Himself from there: Great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all, 16 and charged them that they do not make Him known, 17 so that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet saying: 18 Behold My servant, whom I uphold; My Elect, in whom My Soul delights! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. 19 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause His voice to be heard in the street. 20 A bruised reed He shall not break, and the smoking flax He shall not quench; He shall bring forth judgment to truth. (Isa 42:1–3) 21 And in His name shall the Gentiles trust! 22 Then they brought unto Him ones possessed with a devil; blind and mute, and He healed them, in so much that the blind and mute both spoke and saw. 23 And all the people were amazed, and said: Is not this the son of David? 24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said: This fellow does cast out devils, by Beelzebub the prince of the devils! 25 And Yeshua knew their thoughts, and said unto them: Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: 26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? 27 And if by Beelzebub I cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore, they shall be your judges. 28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of Elohim, the Kingdom of YHVH has come unto you. 29 Or else, how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? And then he will spoil his house. 30 He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathers not with Me scatters abroad! 31 Therefore I say unto you; all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men, but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. 33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else, make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt, for the tree is known by his fruit! 34 O generation of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof on their Day of Judgment. 37 For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned. 38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying: Master, we would see a sign from you! 39 But He answered and said unto them: An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: 40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here! 42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it, for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the Wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here! 43 When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. 44 Then he said: I will return into my house from where I came out, and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then he goes and took with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so, shall it be also unto this wicked generation. 46 While He yet talked to the people, behold, His mother and His brethren stood without, desiring to speak with Him. 47 Then one said unto Him: Behold, your mother and your brethren stand without, desiring to speak with you. 48 But He answered and said unto him that told Him: Who is My mother? And who are My brethren? 49 And He stretched forth His hand toward His disciples and said: Behold My mother and My brethren! 50 For whoever shall do the will of My Father, which is in Heaven; the same is My brother, and sister, and mother.

Matthew 13: (Back)

1 The same day Yeshua went out of the house, and sat by the seaside. 2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto Him, so that He went into a ship and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. 3 And He spoke many things unto them in parables, saying: Behold, a sower went forth to sow, 4 and when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up. 5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth, and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched, and because they had no root, they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them. 8 But others fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit; some a hundred fold, some sixty fold, some thirty fold. 9 Who has ears to hear, let him hear! 10 And the disciples came and said unto Him: Why do you speak unto them in parables? 11 He answered and said unto them: Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it is not given. 12 For whoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: But whoever has not, from him shall be taken away, even that he has. 13 Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing, they see not; and hearing, they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled a prophecy from Isaiah, who said: By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive, 15 for these people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be transformed, and I should heal them! (Isa 6:9–10) 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear! 17 For verily I say unto you that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them. 18 Hear therefore the parable of the sower: 19 When any one hears the word of the Kingdom, and understands it not, then comes the wicked one and catches away that, which was sown in his heart. This is he, which received seed by the way side. 20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that hears the word, and anon with joy receives it, 21 yet he has not root in himself, but endures for a while, for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, by and by he is offended. 22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that hears the word, but the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word and he becomes unfruitful! 23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that hears the word and understands it; which also bears fruit, and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty! 24 Another parable He put forth unto them, saying: The Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man that sowed good seed in his field, 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him: Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? From where then has it tares? 28 And he said unto them: An enemy has done this! The servants said unto him: Will you then, that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said: Nay, lest while you gather up the tares, you root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let them both grow together until the harvest, and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers: Gather together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn. 31 Another parable He put forth unto them, saying: The Kingdom of Heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field, 32 which indeed is the least of all seeds, but when it is grown it is the greatest among herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come to lodge in the branches thereof. 33 Another parable He spoke unto them: The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, until the whole was leavened. 34 All these things Yeshua spoke unto the multitude in parables, and without a parable He spoke not unto them, 35 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things that have been kept secret from the foundation of the world! (Psa 78:2) 36 Then Yeshua sent the multitude away, and went into the house, and His disciples came unto Him saying: Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them: He that sows the good seed is the Son of Man, 38 the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the Kingdom, but the tares are the children of the wicked one! 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels! 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of Man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and them that do iniquity, 42 and shall cast them into a furnace of fire; there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth! 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Who has ears to hear, let him hear! 44 Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man has found, he hides, and for joy thereof goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. 45 Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a merchantman, seeking goodly pearls, 46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. 47 Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a net, which was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind, 48 which, when it was full, they drew to shore and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. 49 So shall it be at the end of the world. The angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 and shall cast them into the furnace of fire; there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth! 51 Yeshua said unto them: Have you understood all these things? They said unto Him: Yea, Lord! 52 Then said He unto them: Therefore, every scribe which is instructed unto the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a man that is a householder, which brings forth out of his treasure things new and old. 53 And it came to pass, that when Yeshua had finished these parables, He departed there. 54 And when He came into His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, inasmuch that they were astonished and said: Where has this Man this wisdom, and these mighty works? 55 Is He not the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brethren, James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? 56 And His sisters; are they not all with us? Where then, has this Man all these things? 57 And they were offended in Him. But Yeshua said unto them: A prophet is not without honor, save in His own country, and in His own house! 58 And He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

Matthew 14: (Back)

1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the fame of Yeshua, 2 and said unto his servants: This is John the Baptist; he is raised from the dead and therefore, mighty works do show forth themselves in him. 3 For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias sake, his brother Philip's wife. 4 For John said unto him: It is not lawful for you to have her. 5 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet. 6 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod. 7 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask. 8 So she, being before instructed of her mother, said: Give me here, John the Baptist's head in a charger. 9 And the king was sorry; nevertheless, for the oath's sake and them that sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her. 10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison. 11 His head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel, and she brought it to her mother. 12 Then his disciples came, took up the body and buried it, and went and told Yeshua. 13 When Yeshua heard of it, He departed there by ship into a desert place apart. When the people had heard thereof, they followed Him on foot out of the cities. 14 And Yeshua went forth, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion toward them, and He healed their sick. 15 And when it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying: This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. 16 But Yeshua said unto them: They need not depart; you give them to eat! 17 And They said unto Him: We have here only five loaves and two fishes. 18 He said: Bring them here to Me! 19 And He commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves and the two fishes; and looking up to heaven, He blessed, and broke, and gave the loaves to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 20 And they did all eat, and were filled, and they took up of the fragments that remained, twelve baskets full. 21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside the women and children. 22 And straightway, Yeshua constrained His disciples to get into a ship, and to go before Him unto the other side while He sent the multitudes away. 23 And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening came, He was there alone. 24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves, for the wind was contrary. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night Yeshua went unto them, walking on the sea. 26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying: It is a spirit! They cried out for fear. 27 But straightway Yeshua spoke unto them, saying: Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28 And Peter answered Him and said: Lord, if it is You, bid me come unto You on the water. 29 And He said: Come! And when Peter came down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Yeshua. 30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying: Lord, save me! 31 And immediately Yeshua stretched forth His hand and caught him, and said unto him: O you of little faith, why did you doubt? 32 And when they came into the ship, the wind ceased. 33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshiped Him, saying: Of a truth You are the Son of Elohim. 34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret. 35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of Him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto Him all that were diseased, 36 and besought Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment; and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

Matthew 15: (Back)

1 Then came to Yeshua, scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying: 2 Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread. 3 But He answered and said unto them: Why do you also transgress the commandment of Elohim by your tradition? 4 For Elohim commanded, saying: Honor your father and mother; and, He that curses father or mother; let him die the death! (Exo 20:12; 21:17) 5 But you say: Whoever shall say to his father or his mother: It is a gift; by whatsoever you might be profited by me; 6 And honor not his father or his mother; he shall be free. Thus have you made the commandment of Elohim of none effect by your tradition. 7 You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you saying: 8 This people draws nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honors Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me: 9 But in vain they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Isa 29:13–14; 1Jo 2:8–10) 10 And He called the multitude, and said unto them: Hear and understand: 11 Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man, but that which comes out of the mouth; this defiles a man. 12 Then His disciples came and said to Him: Do You know that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 13 But He answered and said: Every plant, which My Heavenly Father has not planted, shall be rooted up. 14 Let them alone; they are the blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. 15 Then Peter answered and said unto Him: Declare unto us this parable. 16 And Yeshua said: Are you still without understanding? 17 Do you not yet understand that whatsoever enters in at the mouth goes into the belly, and is cast out into the cesspool? 18 But those things, which proceed out of the mouth, come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts: murders, adultery and fornication, theft, false witness, and blasphemies. 20 These are among the things that defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands defiles not a man. 21 Then Yeshua went there, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried to Him, saying: Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. 23 But He answered her not a word. And His disciples besought Him, saying: Send her away, for she cried after us. 24 But He answered and said: I was not sent, but unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel. 25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying: Lord help me! 26 But He answered and said: It is not right to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. 27 And she said: Truth, Lord, yet the dogs eat of the crumbs that fall from their masters table. 28 Then Yeshua answered and said unto her: O woman, great is your faith: Be it unto you even as you will. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. 29 And Yeshua departed from there, and came nigh unto the Sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there. 30 And great multitudes came unto Him, having with them those that were lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Yeshua's feet; and He healed them: 31 Inasmuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the mute to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see, and they glorified Adonai, the Elohim of Israel. 32 Then Yeshua called His disciples unto Him and said: I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with Me now three days, and have nothing to eat: I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way. 33 And His disciples say unto Him: Where should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude? 34 And Yeshua said unto them: How many loaves have you? And they said, seven, and a few little fishes. 35 And He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. 36 And He took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and broke them, and gave to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 37 And they all ate and were filled: And they took up of the broken meat that was left, seven baskets full. 38 And they that ate were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And He sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.

Matthew 16: (Back)

1 The Pharisees and the Sadducees came, and tempting, desired Him that He would show them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered and said unto them: When it is evening you say: It will be fair weather, for the sky is red. 3 And in the morning: It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and lowering. O you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times? 4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And He left them, and departed. 5 And when His disciples came to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. 6 Then Yeshua said unto them: Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees! 7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying: It is because we have taken no bread. 8 Which when Yeshua perceived, He said unto them: O you of little faith, why do you reason among yourselves, because you have brought no bread? 9 Do you not yet understand? Nor remember the five loaves of the five thousand and how many baskets you took up? 10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets you took up? 11 How is it that you do not understand that I spoke it not to you concerning bread; that you should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? 12 Then they understood how that He bade them not to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. 13 When Yeshua came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying: Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am? 14 And they said: Some say that You are John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the Prophets. 15 He said unto them: But who say you that I Am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said: You are the Messiah, the Son of the living Elohim! 17 And Yeshua answered and said unto him: Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, for flesh and blood has not revealed it unto you, but My Father which is in Heaven. 18 And I say also unto you; that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Koinonia, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven: Whatsoever you shall bind on Earth, shall be bound in Heaven, and whatsoever you shall loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heaven. 20 Then He charged His disciples that they should tell no man that He was Messiah Yeshua. 21 From that time forth Yeshua began to show unto His disciples, how that He must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. 22 Then Peter took Him, and began to rebuke Him, saying: Be it far from You, Lord; this shall not be unto You. 23 But He turned, and said unto Peter: Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense unto Me, for you savor not the things that are of Elohim, but those that are of men. 24 Then Yeshua said unto His disciples: If anyone will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 For whoever will save his life shall lose it, and whoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it. 26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of Man shall come in the glory of His Father with His angels; and then He shall reward every man according to his works. 28 Amen, I say unto you: There is some standing here, which shall not taste of death, until they see the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom. (Luke 17:20–21)

Matthew 17: (Back)

1 After six days, Yeshua took Peter, James, and John his brother, and brought them up into a high mountain apart, 2 and was transfigured before them. His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light. 3 And behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with Him. 4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Yeshua: Lord, it is good for us to be here! If you will, let us make here three tabernacles; one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 5 While he yet spoke, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said: This is My beloved Son, in whom I Am well pleased; you hear Him! 6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. 7 But Yeshua came and touched them, and said: Arise, and be not afraid. 8 When they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no one, save Yeshua only. 9 As they came down from the mountain, Yeshua charged them, saying: Tell the vision to no one, until the Son of Man is raised again from the dead. 10 And His disciples asked Him, saying: Why then did the scribes say that Elias must first come? 11 And Yeshua answered and said unto them: Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. 12 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. 13 Then the disciples understood that He spoke unto them of John the Baptist. 14 And when they came to the multitude, there came to Him a certain man, kneeling down to Him, and saying: 15 Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is lunatic and sore vexed; for he often falls into the fire, and often into the water. 16 And I brought him to your disciples, and they could not cure him. 17 Then Yeshua answered and said: O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? Bring him to Me. 18 And Yeshua rebuked the devil and he departed out of him, and the child was cured from that very hour. 19 Then came the disciples to Yeshua apart, and said: Why could not we cast him out? 20 And Yeshua said unto them: Because of your unbelief, for verily I say unto you; if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain; remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove; nothing shall be impossible unto you. 21 Howbeit, this kind does not go out, but by prayer and fasting. 22 While they abode in Galilee, Yeshua said unto them: The Son of Man shall be betrayed into the hands of men, 23 and they shall kill Him; but on the third day He shall be raised again! Yet they were exceeding sorry. 24 Later, when they arrived at Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter and said: Does not your Master pay tribute? 25 And he said: Yes! But when he returned to enter the house, Yeshua prevented him, saying: What do you think, Simon? Of whom do the kings of Earth take custom or tribute; of their own children or of strangers? 26 Peter said unto Him: Of strangers! Yeshua said unto him: Then the children are free! 27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, you go to the sea, cast a hook, and take up the fish that first comes up; when you have opened his mouth, you shall find a piece of money. Take that and give unto them for Me and you.

Matthew 18: (Back)

1 At the same time the disciples came unto Yeshua, saying: Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven? 2 And Yeshua called a little child unto Him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 and said: Amen, I say unto you; except you are transformed, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever shall humble themselves, as this little child, the same is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. 5 And whoever shall receive one such little child in My name, receives Me. 6 But whoever shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe unto the world because of offenses! For it must needs be that offenses come, but woe unto those by whom the offense comes! 8 Therefore if your hand or your foot offends you, cut them off and cast them from you: It is better for you to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire. 9 And if your eye offends you, pluck it out and cast it from you: It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10 Take heed that you despise not one of these little ones, for I say unto you that in Heaven, their angels do always behold the face of My Father, which is in Heaven. 11 For the Son of Man comes to save that which was lost. 12 How do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them is gone astray, does he not leave the ninety nine, and goes into the mountains, and seeks that which is gone astray? 13 And if so be that he finds it, verily I say unto you; he rejoices more of that sheep, than of the ninety nine which went not astray. 14 Even so it is not the will of your Father in Heaven that one of these little ones should perish. 15 Moreover, if your brother shall trespass against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone: If he shall hear you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he will not hear you, then take with you, one or two more; that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established! (Deu 19:15) 17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the Koinonia: But if he neglects to hear the Koinonia, let him be unto you as a heathen man and a publican. 18 Amen, I say unto you: Whatsoever you shall bind on Earth shall be bound in Heaven, and whatsoever you shall loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heaven. 19 Again I say unto you: That if two of you shall agree on Earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in Heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there I Am, in the midst of them! 21 Then came Peter to Him and said: Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Until seven times? 22 Yeshua said unto him: I did not say unto you; until seven times: but; until seventy times seven! 23 Therefore is the Kingdom of Heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. 24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents. 25 But inasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. 26 The servant therefore fell down and worshiped him, saying: Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay you all. 27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. 28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellow servants, which owed him an hundred pence: And he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying: Pay me all that you owe! 29 And his fellow servant fell down at his feet and besought him, saying: Have patience with me, and I will pay you all. 30 And he would not, but went and cast him into prison, until he should pay the debt. 31 So when his fellow servants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. 32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him: O you wicked servant; I forgave you all that debt, because you desired me: 33 Should not you also have had compassion on your fellow servant, even as I had pity on you? 34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, until he should pay all that was due unto him. 35 So likewise shall my Heavenly Father do also unto you, if you from your hearts forgive not everyone his brother their trespasses.

Matthew 19: (Back)

1 And it came to pass, that when Yeshua had finished these sayings, He departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judea beyond Jordan; 2 And great multitudes followed Him; and He healed them there. 3 The Pharisees also came unto Him, tempting Him, and saying unto Him: Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? 4 And He answered and said unto them: Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning, made them male and female, 5 and said: For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh? (Gen 1:27; 2:24) 6 Therefore, they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore Elohim has joined together, let not man put asunder. 7 They said unto Him: Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 8 He said unto them: Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, suffered you to put away your wives; but from the beginning it was not so. 9 And I say unto you: Whoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, commits adultery, and who so marries her which is put away does also commit adultery. 10 His disciples said to Him: If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. 11 But He said unto them: All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. 12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb, and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men, and there are eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it! 13 Then there were brought unto Him, little children, so that He should put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 But Yeshua said: Suffer the little children, and forbid them not to come unto Me, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven. 15 And He laid His hands on them, and departed there. 16 Then one came and said unto Him: Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17 And He said unto him: Why do you call Me good? There is none good but One; that is, Elohim! But if you will to enter into life, keep the commandments! 18 He said unto Him: Which? Yeshua said: You shall do no murder; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; 19 honor your father and mother; you shall Love your neighbor as yourself! (Exo 20:12–16; Deu 5:16–20; Lev 19:18) 20 The young man said unto Him: All these things have I kept from my youth up! What do I yet lack? 21 Yeshua said unto him: If you will to be perfect, go and sell all that you have, and give it to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven; then come and follow Me! 22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. 23 Then Yeshua said unto His disciples: Amen, I say unto you that a rich man shall hardly enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 24 And again I say unto you; it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of YHVH! 25 When His disciples heard it they were exceedingly amazed, saying: Who then can be saved? 26 But Yeshua beheld them, and said unto them: With men this is impossible, but with Elohim all things are possible! 27 Then Peter answered and said unto Him: Behold, we forsook all, and followed You: What shall we have therefore? 28 Yeshua said unto them: Amen, I say unto you; that you which have followed Me, in the Regeneration when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of His glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (Titus 3:4–7; Acts 3:19–24) 29 And everyone that has forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

Matthew 20: (Back)

1 For the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a man that is a householder, which went out early in the morning to hire laborers into his vineyard. 2 And when he had agreed with the laborers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3 Then he went out about the third hour {9am} and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 4 and said unto them: You also, go into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you! So they went their way. 5 Again he went out about the sixth & ninth hour, and did likewise. 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and said unto them: Why stand here all the day idle? 7 They said unto him: Because no man has hired us. He said unto them, you go also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall you receive. 8 So when evening came, the lord of the vineyard said unto his steward: Call the laborers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. 9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. 10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; they likewise received every man a penny. 11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the good man of the house, 12 saying: These last have worked but one hour, and you have made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day! 13 But he answered one of them, and said: Friend, I do you no wrong! Did not you agree with me for a penny? 14 Take what is yours, and go your way. I will give unto this last, even as unto you. 15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is your eye evil, because I Am good? 16 So, the last shall be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen! 17 Then Yeshua, going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them: 18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn Him to death, 19 and shall deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify Him. But on the third day He shall rise again! 20 Then came to Him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshiping Him, and desiring a certain thing of Him. 21 And He said unto her: What will you? She said unto Him: Grant that these, my two sons may sit, the one on your right hand and the other on the left, in your Kingdom. 22 But Yeshua answered and said: You know not what you ask! Are you able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I Am baptized with? They said unto Him: We are able! 23 So He said unto them: You shall indeed drink of My cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I Am baptized with: But to sit on My right hand and on My left is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them, for whom it is prepared of My Father. 24 When the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren. 25 But Yeshua called them unto Him, and said: You know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them, 26 but it shall not be so among you. But whoever will be great among you, let him be your minister, 27 and whoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant. 28 Even as the Son of Man came, not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many. 29 As they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed Him. 30 And behold, two blind men sitting by the wayside, when they heard that Yeshua passed by, cried out, saying: Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David! 31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace, but they cried all the more saying: Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David! 32 And Yeshua stood still, and called them and said: What will you that I shall do unto you? 33 They said unto Him: Lord, that our eyes may be opened. 34 So Yeshua had compassion on them, and touched their eyes, and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.

Matthew 21: (Back)

1 Now, when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, unto the Mount of Olives, Yeshua then sent two disciples, 2 saying unto them: Go into the village over against you, and straightway you shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: Loose them and bring them unto Me. 3 And if anyone say ought unto you, you shall say: The Lord has need of them, and straightway he will send them. 4 All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: 5 Tell the daughter of Sion, behold, your King comes unto you, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass! (Zec 9:9) 6 So the disciples went and did as Yeshua commanded, 7 and brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set Him thereon. 8 A very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strewed them in the way. 9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried saying: Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is He that comes in the name of The Lord: Hosanna in the highest! (Psa 118:26–29) 10 And when He came into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying: Who is this? 11 And the multitude said: This is Yeshua the Prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. 12 Yeshua went into the temple of Elohim, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money–changers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13 and said to them: It is written: My house shall be called the house of prayer! But you have made it a den of thieves! (Isa 56:7; Jer 7:11) 14 And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them. 15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying: Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased, 16 and said unto Him: Do you hear what these say? And Yeshua said unto them: Yea, have you never read: Out of the mouth of babes and suckling you have perfected praise? (Psa 8:2) 17 And He left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and He lodged there. 18 Now, in the morning as He returned into the city, He hungered. 19 And when He saw a fig tree in the way, He came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it: Let no fruit grow on you henceforward forever! And presently the fig tree withered away. 20 And when the disciples saw it, they marveled saying: How soon the fig tree is withered away! 21 Yeshua answered and said unto them: Amen, I say unto you; If you have faith, and doubt not, you shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also, if you shall say unto this mountain, be removed and cast into the sea, it shall be done. 22 And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive. 23 And when He came into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto Him as He was teaching, and said: By what authority do you these things? And who gave you this authority? 24 And Yeshua answered and said unto them: I also will ask you one thing, which if you tell Me, I likewise will tell you by what authority I do these things. 25 The baptism of John, where was it? From Heaven or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying: If we shall say: From Heaven! He will say unto us: Why did you not then believe him? 26 But if we shall say: Of men! we fear the people, for all hold John as a prophet. 27 So they answered Yeshua and said: We cannot tell! And He said unto them: Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things. 28 But what you think? A certain man had two sons; he came to the first, and said: Son, go work today in my vineyard. 29 But he answered and said: I will not! But afterward he repented, and went. 30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said: I go, sir! And went not. 31 Which of the two did the will of his father? They said unto Him: The first! Yeshua said unto them: Amen, I say unto you that the publicans and the harlots go into the Kingdom of YHVH before you. 32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and you believed him not. But the publicans and the harlots believed him. And you, when you had seen it, repented not afterward, that you might believe him. 33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country. 34 When the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen that they might receive the fruits of it. 35 But the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. 36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first, and they did unto them likewise. 37 But last of all he sent them his son, saying: They will reverence my son. 38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves: This is the heir! Come, let us kill him and let us seize on his inheritance. 39 And they caught him and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. 40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard comes, what will he do unto those husbandmen? 41 They said unto Him: He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. 42 Yeshua said unto them: Did you never read in the scriptures: The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner, this is The Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes? (Psa 118:22–23) 43 Therefore I say unto you: The Kingdom of YHVH shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. 44 And whoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken, but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. 45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard His parables, they perceived that He spoke of them. 46 But when they sought to lay hands on Him, they feared the multitude, because they took Him for a Prophet.

Matthew 22: (Back)

1 And Yeshua answered and spoke unto them again by parables, and said: 2 The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, 3 and sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding; but they would not come. 4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying: Tell them which are bidden, behold, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fattened cattle are killed, and all things are ready; come unto the marriage. 5 But they made light of it and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise. 6 So the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. 7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth, so he sent forth his armies and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. 8 Then said he to his servants: The wedding is ready, but they that were bidden were not worthy. 9 You go therefore into the highways, and as many as you shall find, bid to the marriage. 10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good, and the wedding was furnished with guests. 11 When the king came in to see the guests, he saw there, a man that did not have on a wedding garment, 12 and he said unto him: Friend, how did you get in here not having a wedding garment? But he was speechless. 13 Then said the king to the servants: Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14 For many are called, but few are chosen! 15 Then the Pharisees went and took counsel how they might entangle Him in His words. 16 And they sent out unto Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying: Master, we know that you are true, and teach the way of Elohim in truth, neither care for a man for you regard not the person of men. 17 Tell us therefore: What do you think? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? 18 But Yeshua perceived their wickedness and said: Why do you tempt Me, you hypocrites? 19 Show me the tribute money. And they brought unto Him a penny. 20 And He said unto them: Whose is this image and superscription? 21 They said unto Him: Caesar's! Then said He unto them: Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's, and unto Elohim the things that are of Elohim. 22 When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left Him and went their way. 23 The same day came to Him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked Him, saying: 24 Master, Moses said that if a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up seed for his brother. 25 Now, there were with us seven brethren: The first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and having no issue, left his wife unto his brother. 26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh. 27 And last of all, the woman died also. 28 Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife shall she be, of the seven? For they all had her. 29 Yeshua answered and said unto them: You do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of Elohim. 30 For in the resurrection, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of Elohim in Heaven. 31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have you not read that which was spoken unto you by Elohim, saying: 32 I Am the El of your ancestors; the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! (Exo 3:6,15) Adonai is not the Elohim of the dead, but of the living! 33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at His doctrine. 34 But when the Pharisees had heard that He had put the Sadducees to silence, they gathered together. 35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked Him a question, tempting Him, and saying: 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the Torah? 37 Yeshua said unto him: And you shall Love Adonai your Elohim, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might! (Deu 6:5) 38 This is the first and great commandment! 39 And the second is like unto it: You all shall Love your neighbor as yourself! 40 On these two commandments hang all Torah and that of the Prophets! (Lev 19:18) 41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Yeshua asked them, saying: 42 What do you think of the Messiah? Whose son is He? They said: The son of David! 43 He said unto them: How then does David, in spirit, call him sovereign, saying: 44 Abide as My right hand until I make your enemies your footstool! (Psa 110) 45 If David then called him sovereign, how is he his son? 46 And no one was able to answer Him a word, neither did anyone from that day forth, ask Him any more questions.

Matthew 23: (Back)

1 Then Yeshua spoke to the multitude, and to His disciples, saying: 2 The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses seat: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you to observe, that observe and do. But you; do not do after their works, for they say, and do not. 4 For they bind heavy burdens grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do just to be seen of men. They make broad their phylacteries and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6 and love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 and greetings in the markets, and to be called of men: Rabbi, Rabbi. 8 But you all; do not be called Rabbi, for One is your Master, The Messiah, and all you are brethren. 9 And call no man your father upon Earth; for One is your Father, which is in Heaven. 10 Neither be called masters, for One is your Master: The Messiah! 11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. 13 But woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the Kingdom of Heaven against men, for you neither go in yourselves, neither do you suffer them that are entering to go in. 14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows houses, and for a pretense make long prayer, therefore you shall receive the greater damnation. 15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, you make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. 16 Woe unto you, you blind guides that say: Whoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! 17 You fools, and blind, for which is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifies the gold? 18 And: Whoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. 19 You fools, and blind, for which is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifies the gift? 20 Who so therefore shall swear by the altar, swears by it, and by all things thereon. 21 And who so shall swear by the temple, swears by it, and by him that dwelt therein. 22 And he that shall swear by Heaven, swears by the throne of Elohim, and by Him that sits thereon. 23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the Torah; judgment, mercy, and faith! These ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 You blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. 25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees; hypocrites! For you make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. 26 You blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter; that the outside of them may be clean also. 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like unto white sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, 30 and say: If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Therefore you are witnesses unto yourselves, that you are the children of them that killed the prophets. 32 You fill up then, the measure of your fathers. 33 You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell? 34 Therefore, behold, I send unto you prophets and wise men, and scribes, and some of them, you shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall you scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city, 35 so that upon you, may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel, unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom you slew between the temple and the altar. {2Ch 24:20} 36 Amen, I say unto you: All these things shall come upon this generation. 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, all you that killed the prophets, and stoned them which are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say to you: You shall not see Me henceforth, until you shall say: Blessed is He that comes in the name of The Lord! (Psa 118:26)

Matthew 24: (Back)

1 Yeshua went out, and departed from the temple. And His disciples came to Him to show Him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Yeshua said unto them: Do you not see all these things? Amen, I say unto you: There shall not be left here one stone upon another, which shall not be thrown down. 3 As He sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying: Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Yeshua answered and said unto them: Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many shall come in My name, implying: I am Messianic! But they shall deceive many. 6 And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not troubled, for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in diverse places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you. You shall be hated of all nations for My Name's sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall forsake one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold, 13 but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the nations for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 15 When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (who so reads, let him understand: (Dan 11:31; 12:11)), 16 then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains. 17 Let him that is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house, 18 neither let him that is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But you pray that your flight is not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day. 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved, but for the Elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 23 Then if anyone shall say unto you, Lo, here is Messiah, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Messiahs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, inasmuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very Elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Therefore, if they shall say unto you: Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth! Behold, He is in the secret chambers; believe it not! 27 For as the lightning comes out of the east and shines even to the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For where ever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven, and then shall all the tribes of Earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His Elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 32 Now, learn a parable of the fig tree: When its branch is yet tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is nigh. 33 So likewise, when you shall see all these things, will know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Amen, I say unto you: This generation shall not pass until all these things are fulfilled. 35 Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour, no man knows; no, not the angels of Heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the Ark, 39 and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away. So shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you know not what hour your Lord does come. 43 But know this, if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore, are you also ready, for in such an hour as you think not, the Son of Man comes. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord has made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he comes shall find so doing. 47 Amen, I say unto you that he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart: My lord delays his coming! 49 And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 the lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looks not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth!

Matthew 25: (Back)

1 Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins who took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them, 4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 At midnight there was a cry made: Behold, the bridegroom comes, you go out to meet him! 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 But the foolish said unto the wise: Give us of your oil for our lamps have gone out! 9 But the wise answered, saying: Not so, lest there is not enough for you and us; but rather, you all go to them that sell and buy for yourselves. 10 So while they went to buy the bridegroom came, and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage, and the door was shut. 11 Afterward, came also the other virgins, saying: Lord, Lord, open to us! 12 But he answered and said: Amen, I say unto you; I know you not! 13 Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of Man comes. 14 For the Kingdom of Heaven is as a man traveling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained another two. 18 But he that had received one went and dug in the earth, and hid his lord's money. 19 After a long time the lord of those servants comes, and reckoned with them. 20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying: Lord, you all delivered unto me five talents; behold, I have gained beside them five talents more! 21 His lord said unto him: Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things, enter into the joy of your lord. 22 He also that had received two talents came and said: Lord, you delivered unto me two talents; behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 23 His lord said unto him: Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things, enter into the joy of your lord. 24 Then he that had received the one talent came saying: Lord, I knew you, that you are a hard man, reaping where you all have not sown and gathering where you have not strewed. 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the earth; lo, there you have what is yours! 26 His lord answered and said unto him: You wicked and slothful servant, you knew that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strewed. 27 You ought therefore to have put my money to the changers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him that has ten talents. 29 For unto everyone that has shall be given, and he shall have abundance, but from him that has not shall be taken away even that which he has. 30 And cast you, the unprofitable servant into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 31 When the Son of Man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He shall sit upon the throne of His glory. 32 And before Him shall be gathered all nations, and He shall separate them, one from another, as a shepherd divides the sheep from the goats. 33 And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on the right hand: Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave Me meat; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came unto Me! 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see You hungry and fed You? Or thirsty and gave You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and took You in? Or naked and clothed You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and came unto You? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them: Amen, I say unto you; inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these, My brethren, you have done it unto Me! 41 Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand: Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave Me no meat; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 I was a stranger and you took Me not in; naked and you clothed Me not; sick, and in prison, and you visited Me not! 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see You hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto You? 45 Then shall He answer them, saying: Amen, I say unto you; inasmuch as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to Me! 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment. But the righteous into life eternal! {cf. Luke 16}

Matthew 26: (Back)

1 And it came to pass, when Yeshua had finished all these sayings, He said unto His disciples: 2 You know that after two days is the feast of the Passover, and the Son of Man is betrayed to be crucified. 3 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, 4 and consulted that they might take Yeshua by subtlety, and kill Him. 5 But they said: Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people. 6 Now, when Yeshua was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, 7 there came unto Him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on His head, as He sat at meat. 8 But when His disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying: To what purpose is this waste? 9 For this ointment might have been sold for much and given to the poor! 10 When Yeshua understood it, He said unto them: Why do you trouble the woman? For she has wrought a good work upon Me. 11 For you have the poor always with you, but Me you have not always. 12 For in that she has poured this ointment on My body, she did it for My burial. 13 Amen, I say unto you: Where ever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, what this woman has done, be told for a memorial of her. 14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, 15 and said unto them: What will you give me, and I will deliver Him unto you? And they all agreed for thirty pieces of silver. 16 From that time he sought opportunity to betray Him. 17 Now, the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Yeshua, saying unto Him: Where will You that we prepare for You to eat the Passover? 18 And He said: Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, the Master said: My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples! 19 And the disciples did as Yeshua had appointed them; and they made ready the Passover. 20 Now when evening came, He sat down with the twelve. 21 And as they ate, He said: Amen, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray Me. 22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began everyone of them to say unto Him: Lord, is it I? 23 But He answered and said: He that dips his hand with Me in the dish, the same shall betray Me. 24 The Son of Man goes, as it is written of Him, but woe unto that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed. It had been good for that man if he had not been born. 25 Then Judas, which betrayed Him, answered and said: Master, is it I? He said unto him: You have said! 26 And as they were eating, Yeshua took bread, and blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples, and said: Take, eat; this is My body! 27 And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them all, saying: Drink of it, 28 for this is My blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. 29 But I say unto you; I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's Kingdom. 30 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out into the Mount of Olives. 31 Then said Yeshua unto them: All you shall be offended because of Me this night, for it is written: I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad! (Zec 13:7) 32 But after I Am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee. 33 Peter answered and said unto Him: Though all men shall be offended because of You, yet will I never be offended. 34 Yeshua said unto him: Amen, I say unto you; that this night, before the cockcrow, you all shall deny Me thrice. 35 Peter said unto Him: Though I should die with You, yet I will not deny You! Likewise also said all the disciples. 36 Then Yeshua, coming with them to a place called Gethsemane, said unto all the disciples: Sit here, while I go and pray yonder. 37 And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. 38 Then said He unto them: My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death; you tarry here and watch with Me. 39 And He went a little further, and fell on His face, and prayed, saying: O My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless not as I will, but as You will. 40 And He came to the disciples and found them asleep, and said unto Peter: What, you could not watch with Me one hour? 41 Watch and pray, that you do not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak! 42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying: O My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me, except I drink it, Your will be done! 43 And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy. 44 And He left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45 Then He comes to His disciples and said unto them: Sleep on now and take your rest; behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise and let us be going; behold, he is at hand that does betray Me. 47 And while He yet spoke, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people. 48 Now he that betrayed Him gave them a sign, saying: Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is He: hold Him fast. 49 And forthwith he came to Yeshua, and said: Hail, Master! and kissed Him. 50 And Yeshua said unto him: Friend, Why have you come? Then they came, and laid hands on Yeshua, and took Him. 51 And behold, one of them that was with Yeshua stretched out his hand, drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear. 52 Then said Yeshua unto him: Put up again your sword into its place, for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. 53 You think that I cannot now pray to my Father, and He shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? 54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? 55 In that same hour Yeshua said to the multitudes: Have you come out as against a thief with swords and staves to take Me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and you laid no hold on Me. 56 But all this was done that the scriptures of the Prophets might be fulfilled! Then all the disciples forsook Him, and fled. 57 And they that had laid hold on Yeshua led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. 58 But Peter followed Him afar off unto the high priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end. 59 Now, the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Yeshua, to put Him to death, 60 but found none; yea, though many false witnesses came, yet they found none. At the last came two false witnesses 61 and said: This fellow said: I am able to destroy the temple of Elohim and to build it in three days! 62 Then the high priest arose and said unto Him: You answer nothing? What is it, which these witness against You? 63 But Yeshua held His peace. And the high priest answered and said unto Him: I adjure You by the only living Elohim that You tell us whether You are The Messiah, the Son of Elohim. 64 Yeshua said unto him: You have said; nevertheless I say unto you that hereafter, you shall see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of Power, and coming in the clouds of heaven! 65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying: He has spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now you have heard His blasphemy. 66 What do you think? They answered and said: He is guilty of death! 67 Then they spit in His face, and buffeted Him; and others smote Him with the palms of their hands, 68 saying: Prophesy unto us, Messiah! Who is he that smote You? 69 Now, Peter sat without in the palace, and a damsel came unto him, saying: You also were with Yeshua of Galilee. 70 But he denied before them all, saying: I know not what you all say! 71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him and said unto them that were there: This fellow was also with Yeshua of Nazareth. 72 And again he denied with an oath: I do not know the Man! 73 And after a while they that stood by came unto him, and said to Peter: Surely you are also one of them, for your speech betrays you. 74 Then he began to curse and to swear, saying: I know not the Man! And immediately the cock crew. 75 Then Peter remembered the word of Yeshua, which said unto him: Before the cockcrow you shall deny Me thrice! And he went out, and wept bitterly.

Matthew 27: (Back)

1 When the morning came, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Yeshua to put Him to death. 2 And when they had bound Him, they led Him away, and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor. 3 Then Judas, which had betrayed Him, when he saw that He was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 saying: I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said: What is that to us? You see to that. 5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. 6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said: It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. 7 So they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. 8 Therefore, that field was called: The Field of Blood, unto this day. 9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying: And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of Him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value, 10 and gave them for the potter's field, as The Lord appointed me! (Jer 32:6–9) 11 Yeshua stood before the governor, and the governor asked Him, saying: Are You the King of the Jews? And Yeshua said unto him: You say! 12 But when He was accused of the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing. 13 Then said Pilate unto Him: Do you not hear how many things they witness against You? 14 But He answered him never a word; inasmuch that the governor marveled greatly. 15 Now at that feast, the governor wanted to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would. 16 And they had then, a notable prisoner called Barabbas. 17 Therefore, when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them: Whom will you that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Yeshua, which is called The Messiah? 18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered Him. 19 When he sat down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying: Have nothing to do with that just Man, for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of Him. 20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask for Barabbas, and destroy Yeshua. 21 The governor answered and said unto them: Which of the two will you that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas! 22 Pilate said unto them: What shall I do then with Yeshua, which is called The Messiah? They all say unto him: Let Him be crucified. 23 And the governor said: Why? What evil has He done? But they cried out the more saying: Let Him be crucified! 24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather, a tumult was made, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying: I am innocent of the blood of this just Person; you see to it. 25 Then all the people answered and said: His blood is on us, and on our children. 26 Then he released Barabbas unto them, and when he had scourged Yeshua, he delivered Him to be crucified. 27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Yeshua into the common hall, and gathered unto Him the whole band of soldiers. 28 And they stripped Him and put on Him a scarlet robe. 29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, a reed in His right hand, and then bowed the knee before Him, and mocked Him, saying: Hail, King of the Jews! 30 And they spit upon Him, and took the reed, and smote Him on the head. 31 After they had mocked Him, they took the robe off from Him, and put on His own raiment, and led Him away to crucify Him. 32 As they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name; they compelled him to bear His cross. 33 And when they came unto a place called Golgotha; that is to say, a place of a skull, 34 they gave Him vinegar to drink mingled with gall. And when He had tasted thereof, He would not drink. 35 Then they crucified Him, and parted His garments, casting lots; that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet: They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots! (Psa 22:18) 36 And sitting down, they watched Him there. 37 And set up over His head His accusation written: This is Yeshua, the King of the Jews! 38 Then there were two thieves crucified with Him, one on the right hand, and another on the left. 39 And they that passed by reviled Him, wagging their heads 40 and saying: He that destroys the temple and builds it in three days; save Yourself! If you are the Son of Elohim, come down from the cross. 41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking Him with the scribes and elders, said: 42 He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He is the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe Him. 43 He trusted in Elohim; let Him deliver Him now, if He will have Him, for He said: I Am the Son of Elohim! 44 The thieves also, which were crucified with Him, reviled Him the same way. 45 Now, from the sixth hour {12 pm} there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. 46 At about the ninth hour, Yeshua cried with a loud voice, saying: Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say: Elohim, Elohim, why abandon Me? (Psa 22:1) 47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said: This Man calls for Elias! 48 And straightway one of them ran, took a sponge and filled it with vinegar, put it on a reed, and gave Him to drink. 49 The rest said: Let Him be, let us see whether Elias will come to save Him! 50 Yeshua, when He had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the Spirit. 51 And behold, the veil of the temple was rent in two, from the top to the bottom, and the earth did quake and the rocks rent; 52 and the graves were opened, and many bodies of the Saints that slept, arose, 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared unto many. 54 Now, when the centurion and they that were with him watching Yeshua, saw the earthquake and those things that were done, feared greatly, saying: Truly this was the Son of Elohim. 55 Many women were there, beholding afar off, who followed Yeshua from Galilee ministering unto Him: 56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children. 57 When it was evening, there came a rich man of Arimathaea named Joseph, who also himself was Yeshua's disciple. 58 He went to Pilate and begged the body of Yeshua. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. 59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock. And he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulcher, and departed. 61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulcher. 62 Now, the next day that followed the Day of the Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate, 63 saying: Sir, we remember what that deceiver said while He was yet alive: After three days I will rise again! 64 Command therefore that the sepulcher be made sure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night and steal Him away, and say unto the people: He is risen from the dead! So the last error shall be worse than the first. 65 Pilate said unto them: You have the watch; go your way and make it as sure as you can. 66 So they went and made the sepulcher sure, sealing the stone and setting a watch.

Matthew 28: (Back)

1 By the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the sepulcher. 2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for the angel of The Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow. 4 And for fear of him, the keepers became as dead men. 5 Then the angel answered and said unto the women: Fear not, for I know that you seek Yeshua, which was crucified. 6 He is not here, for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where The Lord lay. 7 Go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead; and behold, He goes before you into Galilee; there you shall see Him. Lo, I have told you. 8 And they departed quickly from the sepulcher with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word. 9 As they went to tell His disciples, behold, Yeshua met them, saying: All hail! And they came and held Him by the feet, and worshiped Him. 10 Then said Yeshua unto them: Be not afraid; go tell My brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see Me. 11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and showed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. 12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, 13 saying: You say that His disciples came by night and stole Him away while we slept. 14 And if this comes to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. 15 So they took the money and did as they were taught. This saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day. 16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Yeshua had appointed them. 17 And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him. But some doubted. 18 So Yeshua came and spoke unto them, saying: All power is given unto Me in Heaven and on Earth. 19 Go therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I have commanded you. And, lo, I Am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen!
