Discussion about Divorce and Marriage

10Then Jesus left Capernaum and went down to the region of Judea and into the area east of the Jordan River. Once again crowds gathered around him, and as usual he was teaching them.G2547G450G2547G2064G1519G3725G2449G1223G4008G2446G2532G3793G4848G4314G846G3825G2532G5613G1486G1321G846G3825 2Some Pharisees came and tried to trap him with this question: "Should a man be allowed to divorce his wife?"G2532G5330G4334G1905G846G1487G1832G435G630G1135G3985G846 3Jesus answered them with a question: "What did Moses say in the law about divorce?"G1161G611G2036G846G5101G3475G1781G5213 4"Well, he permitted it," they replied. "He said a man can give his wife a written notice of divorce and send her away."G1161G2036G3475G2010G1125G975G647G2532G630 5But Jesus responded, "He wrote this commandment only as a concession to your hard hearts.G2532G2424G611G2036G846G4314G4641G5216G4641G1125G5213G5026G1785 6But `God made them male and female' from the beginning of creation.G1161G575G746G2937G2316G4160G846G730G2532G2338 7`This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife,G1752G5127G2641G444G2641G846G3962G2532G3384G2532G4347G4314G846G1135 8and the two are united into one.' Since they are no longer two but one,G2532G1417G2071G1519G3391G4561G5620G1526G3765G1417G235G3391G4561 9let no one split apart what God has joined together."G3739G3767G2316G4801G5563G3361G444G5563 10Later, when he was alone with his disciples in the house, they brought up the subject again.G2532G1722G3614G846G3101G1905G846G3825G4012G846 11He told them, "Whoever divorces his wife and marries someone else commits adultery against her.G2532G3004G846G3739G1437G630G846G1135G2532G1060G243G3429G1909G846 12And if a woman divorces her husband and marries someone else, she commits adultery."G2532G1437G1135G630G846G435G2532G1060G243G3429

Jesus Blesses the Children

13One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so he could touch and bless them. But the disciples scolded the parents for bothering him.G2532G4374G3813G846G2443G680G846G1161G3101G2008G4374 14When Jesus saw what was happening, he was angry with his disciples. He said to them, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.G1161G2424G1492G23G2532G2036G846G863G3813G2064G4314G3165G2532G2967G846G3361G1063G5108G2076G932G2316 15I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn't receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it."G281G3004G5213G3739G1209G3362G1209G932G2316G5613G3813G1525G3364G1525G1519G846 16Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them.G2532G1723G846G1723G5087G5495G1909G846G2127G846

The Rich Man

17As Jesus was starting out on his way to Jerusalem, a man came running up to him, knelt down, and asked, "Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?"G2532G1607G1519G846G3598G4370G1520G4370G2532G1120G846G1905G846G18G1320G5101G4160G2443G2816G166G2222 18"Why do you call me good?" Jesus asked. "Only God is truly good.G1161G2424G2036G846G5101G3004G3165G18G3762G18G1508G1520G2316 19But to answer your question, you know the commandments: `You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. You must not cheat anyone. Honor your father and mother.'"G1492G1785G3431G3361G3431G5407G3361G5407G2813G3361G2813G5576G3361G5576G650G3361G5091G4675G3962G2532G3384 20"Teacher," the man replied, "I've obeyed all these commandments since I was young."G1161G611G2036G846G1320G3956G5023G5442G1537G3450G3503 21Looking at the man, Jesus felt genuine love for him. "There is still one thing you haven't done," he told him. "Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."G1161G2424G1689G846G25G846G2532G2036G846G1520G4671G5302G5217G4453G3745G2192G2532G1325G4434G2532G2192G2344G1722G3772G2532G1204G142G4716G190G3427 22At this the man's face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions.G1161G4768G1909G3056G565G3076G1063G2192G2258G4183G2933 23Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God!"G2532G2424G4017G3004G846G3101G4459G1423G2192G5536G1525G1519G932G2316 24This amazed them. But Jesus said again, "Dear children, it is very hard to enter the Kingdom of God.G1161G3101G2284G1909G846G3056G1161G2424G611G3825G3004G846G5043G4459G1422G2076G3982G1909G5536G1525G1519G932G2316 25In fact, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!"G2076G2123G2574G1525G1330G1223G5168G4476G2228G4145G1525G1519G932G2316 26The disciples were astounded. "Then who in the world can be saved?" they asked.G1161G1605G4057G3004G4314G1438G2532G5101G1410G4982 27Jesus looked at them intently and said, "Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God."G1161G2424G1689G846G3004G3844G444G102G235G3756G3844G2316G1063G3844G2316G3956G2076G1415 28Then Peter began to speak up. "We've given up everything to follow you," he said.G2532G4074G756G3004G846G2400G2249G863G3956G2532G190G4671 29"Yes," Jesus replied, "and I assure you that everyone who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or property, for my sake and for the Good News,G1161G2424G611G2036G281G3004G5213G2076G3762G3739G863G3614G2228G80G2228G79G2228G3962G2228G3384G2228G1135G2228G5043G2228G68G1700G1752G2532G2098 30will receive now in return a hundred times as many houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and property—along with persecution. And in the world to come that person will have eternal life.G3362G2983G1542G3568G1722G5129G2540G3614G2532G80G2532G79G2532G3384G2532G5043G2532G68G3326G1375G2532G1722G165G2064G166G2222 31But many who are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then."G1161G4183G4413G2071G2078G2532G2078G4413

Jesus Again Predicts His Death

32They were now on the way up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of them. The disciples were filled with awe, and the people following behind were overwhelmed with fear. Taking the twelve disciples aside, Jesus once more began to describe everything that was about to happen to him.G1161G2258G1722G3598G305G1519G2414G2532G2424G2258G4254G846G2532G2284G2532G190G5399G2532G3880G3825G1427G756G3004G846G3195G4819G846 33"Listen," he said, "we're going up to Jerusalem, where the Son of Man will be betrayed to the leading priests and the teachers of religious law. They will sentence him to die and hand him over to the Romans.G3754G2400G305G1519G2414G2532G5207G444G3860G749G2532G1122G2532G2632G846G2288G2532G3860G846G1484 34They will mock him, spit on him, flog him with a whip, and kill him, but after three days he will rise again."G2532G1702G846G2532G3146G846G2532G1716G846G2532G615G846G2532G5154G2250G450

Jesus Teaches about Serving Others

35Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came over and spoke to him. "Teacher," they said, "we want you to do us a favor."G2532G2385G2532G2491G5207G2199G4365G846G3004G1320G2309G2443G4160G2254G3739G1437G154 36"What is your request?" he asked.G1161G2036G846G5101G2309G3165G4160G5213 37They replied, "When you sit on your glorious throne, we want to sit in places of honor next to you, one on your right and the other on your left."G1161G2036G846G1325G2254G2443G2523G1520G1537G4675G1188G2532G1520G1537G4675G2176G1722G4675G1391 38But Jesus said to them, "You don't know what you are asking! Are you able to drink from the bitter cup of suffering I am about to drink? Are you able to be baptized with the baptism of suffering I must be baptized with?"G1161G2424G2036G846G1492G3756G5101G154G1410G4095G4221G3739G1473G4095G2532G907G908G3739G1473G907 39"Oh yes," they replied, "we are able!" Then Jesus told them, "You will indeed drink from my bitter cup and be baptized with my baptism of suffering.G1161G2036G846G1410G1161G2424G2036G846G4095G3303G4095G4221G3739G1473G4095G2532G908G3739G1473G907G907 40But I have no right to say who will sit on my right or my left. God has prepared those places for the ones he has chosen."G1161G2523G1537G3450G1188G2532G1537G3450G2176G2076G3756G1699G1325G235G3739G2090 41When the ten other disciples heard what James and John had asked, they were indignant.G2532G1176G191G756G23G4012G2385G2532G2491 42So Jesus called them together and said, "You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them.G1161G2424G4341G846G3004G846G1492G3754G1380G757G1484G2634G846G2532G846G3173G2715G846 43But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant,G1161G3779G2071G3756G2071G1722G5213G235G3739G1437G2309G1096G3173G1722G5213G2071G5216G1249 44and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else.G2532G3739G302G5216G2309G1096G4413G2071G1401G3956 45For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many."G1063G2532G5207G444G2064G3756G1247G235G1247G2532G1325G846G5590G3083G473G4183

Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus

46Then they reached Jericho, and as Jesus and his disciples left town, a large crowd followed him. A blind beggar named Bartimaeus was sitting beside the road.G2532G2064G1519G2410G2532G846G1607G575G2410G2532G846G3101G2532G2425G3793G5185G924G5207G5090G2521G3844G3598G4319 47When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus of Nazareth was nearby, he began to shout, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"G2532G191G3754G2076G2424G3480G756G2896G2532G3004G2424G5207G1138G1653G3165 48"Be quiet!" many of the people yelled at him. But he only shouted louder, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"G2532G4183G2008G846G2443G4623G1161G2896G3123G4183G5207G1138G1653G3165 49When Jesus heard him, he stopped and said, "Tell him to come here." So they called the blind man. "Cheer up," they said. "Come on, he's calling you!"G2532G2424G2476G2036G846G5455G2532G5455G5185G3004G846G2293G1453G5455G4571 50Bartimaeus threw aside his coat, jumped up, and came to Jesus.G1161G577G846G2440G450G2064G4314G2424 51"What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked. "My rabbi," the blind man said, "I want to see!"G2532G2424G611G3004G846G5101G2309G4160G4671G1161G5185G2036G846G4462G2443G308 52And Jesus said to him, "Go, for your faith has healed you." Instantly the man could see, and he followed Jesus down the road.G1161G2424G2036G846G5217G4675G4102G4982G4571G4982G2532G2112G308G2532G190G2424G1722G3598
