Teaching about Divorce  Mk.10.1-12 (Borders of Samaria)[ Mk.10.1-12 → ] - Mt.19.1-12

1ON LEAVING THOSE PARTS he came into the regions of Judaea and Transjordan; and when a crowd gathered round him once again, he followed his usual practice and taught them. 2The question was put to him: 'Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?' This was to test him. 3He asked in return, 'What did Moses command you?' 4 [ Dt.24.1-3. ] They answered, 'Moses permitted a man to divorce his wife by note of dismissal.' 5Jesus said to them, 'It was because you were so unteachable that he made this rule for you; 6 [ Gn.1.27, Gn.5.2. ] but in the beginning, at the creation. God made them male and female.

7 [ Gn.2.24. ] For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother, and be made one with his wife; Some witnesses omit: and be made ... wife. 8and the two shall become one flesh. It follows that they are no longer two individuals: they are one flesh. 9What God has joined together, man must not separate.'

10When they were indoors again the disciples questioned him about this matter; 11he said to them, 'Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her: 12so too, if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.'

Little Children Blessed  Mk.10.13-16 (Borders of Samaria)[ Mk.10.13-16 → ] - Mt.19.13-15, Lk.18.15-17

13They brought children for him to touch; and the disciples scolded them for it. 14But when Jesus saw this he was indignant, and said to them, 'Let the children come to me; do not try to stop them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15I tell you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.' 16And he put his arms round them, laid his hands upon them, and blessed them.

The Rich Man  Mk.10.17-31 (Borders of Samaria)[ Mk.10.17-31 → ] - Mt.19.16-30, Lk.18.18-30

17As he was starting out on a journey, a stranger ran up, and, kneeling before him, asked, 'Good Master, is what must I do to win eternal life?' 18Jesus said to him, 'Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone. 19 [ Ex.20.12-16, Dt.5.16. ] You know the commandments: "Do not murder; do not commit adultery; do not steal; do not give false evidence; do not defraud; honour your father and mother." ' 20'But, Master,' he replied, 'I have kept all these since I was a boy.' 21Jesus looked straight at him; his heart warmed to him, and he said, 'One thing you lack: go, sell everything you have, and give to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven; and come, follow me.' 22At these words his face fell and he went away with a heavy heart; for he was a man of great wealth.

23Jesus looked round at his disciples and said to them, 'How hard it will be for the wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!' 24They were amazed that he should say this, but Jesus insisted, 'Children, how hard it is Some witnesses insert: for those who trust in riches. to enter the kingdom of God! 25It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.' 26They were more astonished than ever, and said to one another, 'Then who can be saved?' 27Jesus looked at them and said, 'For men it is impossible, but not for God; to God everything is possible.'

28At this Peter spoke. 'We here', he said, 'have left everything to become your followers.' 29Jesus said, 'I tell you this: there is no one who has given up home, brothers or sisters, mother, father or children, or land, for my sake and for the Gospel, 30who will not receive in this age a hundred times as much-houses, brothers and sisters, mothers and children, and land—and persecutions besides; and in the age to come eternal life. 31But many who are first will be last and the last first.'

A Third Time Jesus foretells His Death and Resurrection  Mk.10.32-34 (Borders of Samaria)[ Mk.10.32-34 → ] - Mt.20.17-19, Lk.18.31-34

32THEY WERE ON THE ROAD, going up to Jerusalem, Jesus leading the way; and the disciples were filled with awe; while those who followed behind were afraid. He took the Twelve aside and began to tell them what was to happen to him. 33'We are now going to Jerusalem,' he said; 'and the Son of Man will be given up to the chief priests and the doctors of the law; they will condemn him to death and hand him over to the foreign power. 34He will be mocked and spat upon, flogged and killed; and three days afterwards, he will rise again.'

The Request of James and John  Mk.10.35-45 (Borders of Samaria)[ Mk.10.35-45 → ] - Mt.20.20-28

35James and John, the sons of Zebedee, approached him and said, 'Master, we should like you to do us a favour.' 36'What is it you want me to do?' he asked. 37They answered, 'Grant us the right to sit in state with you, one at your right and the other at your left.' 38Jesus said to them, 'You do not understand what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?' 39'We can', they answered. Jesus said, 'The cup that I drink you shall drink, and the baptism I am baptized with shall be your baptism; 40but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant; it is for those to whom it has already been assigned.' Some witnesses add: by my Father.

41When the other ten heard this, they were indignant with James and John. 42Jesus called them to him and said, 'You know that in the world the recognized rulers lord it over their subjects, and their great men make them feel the weight of authority. 43That is not the way with you; among you, whoever wants to be great must be your servant, 44and whoever wants to be first must be the willing slave of all. 45For even the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to surrender his life as a ransom for many.'

The Healing of Blind Bartimaeus  Mk.10.46-52 (near Jericho)[ Mk.10.46-52 → ] - Mt.20.29-34, Lk.18.35-43

46They came to Jericho; and as he was leaving the town, with his disciples and a large crowd, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was seated at the roadside. 47Hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, 'Son of David, Jesus, have pity on me!' 48Many of the people rounded on him: 'Be quiet', they said; but he shouted all the more, 'Son of David, have pity on me.' 49Jesus stopped and said, 'Call him'; so they called the blind man and said, 'Take heart; stand up; he is calling you.' 50At that he threw off his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus. 51Jesus said to him, 'What do you want me to do for you?' 'Master,' the blind man answered, 'I want my sight back.' 52Jesus said to him, 'Go; your faith has cured you.' And at once he recovered his sight and followed him on the road.
