Luke 9:1 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them
power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.
The call ones, Jesus gave them power over
devils, evil spirits and to cure diseases.
3 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves,
nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.
Jesus sent the disciples to teach the word and
to heal the sick.
Which we know only God can heal, but we ask God to heal, and if it be His
will, they will be healed.
4 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.
5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake
off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.
6 And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel,
and healing every where.
7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was
perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from
8 And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the
old prophets was risen again.
9 And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear
such things? And he desired to see him.
10 And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all that they had
done. And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place
belonging to the city called Bethsaida.
John have I beheaded
11 And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received
them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that
had need of healing.
Bethsaida = house of the fish = symbolized
12 And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said
unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and
country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a
13 But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no
more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat
for all this people.
14 For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples,
Make them sit down by fifties in a company.
15 And they did so, and made them all sit down.
16 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to
heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set
before the multitude.
17 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of
fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.
18 And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with
him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?
Matthew 16:8 Which when Jesus perceived,
he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why
reason ye among yourselves, because ye have
brought no bread?
9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the
five loaves of the five thousand, and how many
baskets ye took up?
10 Neither the seven loaves of the four
thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?
11 How is it that ye do not understand that I
spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye
should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and
of the Sadducees?
12 Then understood they how that he bade them
not beware of the leaven of bread, but of
the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the
19 They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and
others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.
20 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said,
The Christ of God.
21 And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that
Matthew 16:12 Then understood they how
that he bade them not beware of the leaven of
bread, but of the doctrine of the
Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea
Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom
do men say that I the Son of man am?
14 And they said, Some say that thou art John
the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias,
or one of the prophets.
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art
the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed
art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood
hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father
which is in heaven.
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art
Peter, and upon this rock I will build my
church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail
19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the
kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt
bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and
whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be
loosed in heaven.
20 Then charged he his disciples that they
should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.
22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of
the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised
the third day.
That thing = this = Thus closes the second of
the four great periods of the Lord's ministry.
Enough had been said and done by Him Ap.119
23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny
himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
Sufferings and Glory First, Foretold
Suffer = to suffer
This is the first mention of His sufferings.
Be rejected = After trial, therefore trial
premeditation, and deliberate, "after three
Matthew 27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet
alive, After three days I will rise again.
24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will
lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose
himself, or be cast away?
26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall
the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in
his Father's, and of the holy angels.
27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall
not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took
Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.
- Kingdom = There can be no
kingdom apart from a king.
- Messiah's Kingdom on earth
- Jesus Is King of Kings and Lord of Lords = 7th trumpet =
first day of the millennium = The Lord's day!!
- Many of them just spend forty days with him, fifty day the
Holy Spirit came to them
- Verse 22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many
things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and
scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.
29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his
raiment was white and glistering.
To pass about an eight days after these sayings
30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and
31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should
accomplish at Jerusalem.
32 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when
they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with
33 And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto
Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three
tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not
knowing what he said.
34 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and
they feared as they entered into the cloud.
Elias = Elijah
Moses and Elijah
35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved
Son: hear him.
36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it
close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had
God saying listen to Him, Jesus
37 And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down
from the hill, much people met him.
They kept it close = they all left together
38 And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I
beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.
39 And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it
teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth
40 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.
41 And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how
long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.
Why couldn't the Disciples cast the devil out?
Matthew 17:15 Lord, have mercy on
my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for oft times he
falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.
16 And I
brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse
generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I
suffer you? bring him hither to me.
18 And Jesus rebuked
the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured
from that very hour.
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus
apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say
unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall
say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it
shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Man only can do nothing, but with God they can,
if they have faith.
42 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him.
And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and
delivered him again to his father.
Because, they didn't have the faith
Faithless = unbelieving
43 And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they
wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his
44 Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall
be delivered into the hands of men.
45 But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that
they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.
Delivered = delivered up. The second
announcement of His sufferings.
46 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be
47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and
set him by him,
48 And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name
receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me:
for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.
Jesus could read their minds
49 And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in
thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.
50 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against
us is for us.
Who was the greatest?
51 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be
received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,
If, they are doing the same work as us
52 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into
a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
When the time was come = the fulfilling of the
Marking a certain stage of the Lord's ministry.
53 And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would
go to Jerusalem.
Samaritans didn't care for Israel at this time
54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt
thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them,
even as Elias did?
55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of
spirit ye are of.
The disciples has already saw Elijah, verse 30
56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save
them. And they went to another village.
57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man
said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
Jesus came to save lives, not to destroy man
You are here to help people
58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have
nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
59 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me
first to go and bury my father.
60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and
preach the kingdom of God.
61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go
bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.
What's comes first?
The word of God.
Help the people, teach the word.
62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough,
and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
Plough = has blade
Never look back
