Jesus instructs and empowers the Twelve Apostles and sends them forth to preach, minister, and heal the sick—Those who receive the Twelve receive the Lord.
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 apublican; James the son of Alphæus, and Lebbæus, whose surname was Thaddæus;
4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also abetrayed him.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven ais at hand.
9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your apurses,
11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall aenter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.
13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of aSodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the aSpirit of your Father which speaketh 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.
23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
24 The adisciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
25 It is enough for the disciple athat he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?
26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing acovered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
29 Are not two asparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
30 But the very ahairs of your head are all numbered.
32 Whosoever therefore shall aconfess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
33 But whosoever shall adeny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
34 Think not that I am come to send apeace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am 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.
41 He that areceiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s breward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.
