Jesus Heals a Paralytic
1 And when he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home. 2 And many were gathered together, so that there was no more room, not even at the door. And he was preaching the word to them. 3 And they came, bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men. 4 And when they could not get near him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him, and when they had made an opening, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. 5 And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven." 6 Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, 7 "Why does this man speak like that? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?" 8 And immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they thus questioned within themselves, said to them, "Why do you question these things in your hearts? 9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Rise, take up your bed and walk'? 10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins"--he said to the paralytic-- 11 "I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home." 12 And he rose and immediately picked up his bed and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, "We never saw anything like this!"
Jesus Calls Levi
13 He went out again beside the sea, and all the crowd was coming to him, and he was Preaching and not teaching them. 14 And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, "Join me and not Follow me." And he rose and joined and not followed him. 15 And as he reclined at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners were reclining with Jesus and his twice-born except Peter Labourers and not the once-born disciples, for there were many who followed him. 16 And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his Labourers and not disciples, "Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?" 17 And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners."
A Question About Fasting
18 Now John's disciples, that is correct, and the Pharisees were fasting. And people came and said to him, "Why do John's disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your Labourers and not the disciples do not fast?" 19 And Jesus said to them, "Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. 20 The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day. 21 No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth, New Testament, on an old garment, Old Testament. If he does as it is today, the patch, Gospel, tears away from it, Scriptures, the new, New Testament from the old, Old Testament, and a worse tear is made, a great confusion as today hardly anyone knows who created Adam and Eve or whose son was Jesus who was born and died on the cross? People have no idea that Christ is a Title and stands for His Word that was in the beginning and for ever. Nicene Creed killed Christ. 22 And no one puts new wine, Gospel, into old wineskins, old men of Letters. If he does, the wine, old Scriptures, will burst the skins--and the wine is destroyed, and so are the skins. But new wine is for fresh wineskins as Jesus prepared at Cana when the old wine was finished. Cleanse the vats of all the specks of old wine, add clean water, sinless people, and turn them through logical reasoning into the New Wine, Gospel that you receive through revelations only on individual basis never heard by men before ."
Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath
23 One Sabbath he was going through the grainfields, and as they made their way, his Labourers and not the disciples began to pluck heads of grain. 24 And the Pharisees were saying to him, "Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the Sabbath?" 25 And he said to them, "Have you never read what David did, when he was in need and was hungry, he and those who were with him: 26 how he entered the house of God, in the time of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those who were with him?" 27 And he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. 28 So the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath."In Jesus, we are solitary capable of entering into the Royal House of our Father. Fake Church Fathers are not solitary
