Plucking Grain on the Sabbath  Lk.6.1-5 (Galilee)[ Lk.6.1-5 → ] - Mt.12.1-8, Mk.2.23-28

1One Sabbath he was going through the cornfields, and his disciples were plucking the ears of corn, rubbing them in their hands, and eating them. 2Some of the Pharisees said, 'Why are you doing what is forbidden on the Sabbath?' 3Jesus answered, 'So you have not read what David did when he and his men were hungry? 4He went into the House of God and took the consecrated loaves to eat and gave them to his men, though priests alone are allowed to eat them, and no one else.' 5He also said, 'The Son of Man is sovereign even over the Sabbath.'

The Man with a Withered Hand  Lk.6.6-11 (Capernaum)[ Lk.6.6-11 → ] - Mt.12.9-14, Mk.3.1-6

6On another Sabbath he had gone to synagogue and was teaching. There happened to be a man in the congregation whose right arm was withered; 7and the lawyers and the Pharisees were on the watch to see whether Jesus would cure him on the Sabbath, so that they could find a charge to bring against him. 8But he knew what was in their minds and said to the man with the withered arm, 'Get up and stand out here.' So he got up and stood there. 9Then Jesus said to them, 'I put the question to you: is it permitted to do good or to do evil on the Sabbath, to save life or to destroy it?' 10He looked round at them all and then said to the man, 'Stretch out your arm.' He did so, and his arm was restored. 11But they were beside themselves with anger, and began to discuss among themselves what they could do to Jesus.

The Choosing of the Twelve  Lk.6.12-16 (Galilee)[ Lk.6.12-16 → ] - Mt.10.1-4, Mk.3.13-19

12During this time he went out one day into the hills to pray, and spent the night in prayer to God. 13When day broke he called his disciples to him, and from among them he chose twelve and named them Apostles: 14Simon, to whom he gave the name of Peter, and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew, 15Matthew and Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, 16Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot who turned traitor.

Ministering to a Great Multitude  Lk.6.17-19[ Lk.6.17-19 → ] - Mt.4.23-25

17He came down the hill with them and took his stand on level ground. There was a large concourse of his disciples and great numbers of people from Jerusalem and Judaea and from the seaboard of Tyre and Sidon, who had come to listen to him, and to be cured of their diseases. 18Those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured; 19and everyone in the crowd was trying to touch him, because power went out from him and cured them all.

Blessings and Woes  Lk.6.20-26 (Galilee)[ Lk.6.20-26 → ] - Mt.5.1-12

20THEN TURNING TO HIS DISCIPLES he began to speak:

'How blest are you who are poor; the kingdom of God is yours.

21'How blest are you who now go hungry; your hunger shall be satisfied.

'How blest are you who weep now; you shall laugh.

22'How blest you are when men hate you, when they outlaw you and insult you, and ban your very name as infamous, because of the Son of Man. 23On that day be glad and dance for joy; for assuredly you have a rich reward in heaven; in just the same way did their fathers treat the prophets.

24'But alas for you who are rich; you have had your time of happiness.

25'Alas for you who are well-fed now; you shall go hungry.

'Alas for you who laugh now; you shall mourn and weep.

26'Alas for you when all speak well of you; just so did their fathers treat the false prophets.

Love for Enemies  Lk.6.27-36[ Lk.6.27-36 → ] - Mt.5.43-48, Lk.6.27-28

27'But to you who hear me I say:

'Love your enemies; do good to those who hate you; 28bless those who curse you; pray for those who treat you spitefully. 29When a man hits you on the cheek, offer him the other cheek too; when a man takes your coat, let him have your shirt as well. 30Give to everyone who asks you; when a man takes what is yours, do not demand it back. 31Treat others as you would like them to treat you.

32'If you love only those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. 33Again, if you do good only to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do as much. 34And if you lend only where you expect to be repaid, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to each other if they are to be repaid in full. 35But you must love your enemies and do good; and lend without expecting any return; Or: without ever giving up hope; some witnesses read: without giving up hope of anyone. and you will have a rich reward: you will be sons of the Most High, because he himself is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36Be compassionate as your Father is compassionate.

Judging Others  Lk.6.37-42[ Lk.6.37-42 → ] - Mt.7.1-6, Lk.6.37-38

37'Pass no judgement, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; acquit, and you will be acquitted; 38give, and gifts will be given you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap; for whatever measure you deal out to others will be dealt to you in return.'

39He also offered them a parable: 'Can one blind man be guide to another? Will they not both fall into the ditch? 40A pupil is not superior to his teacher; but everyone, when his training is complete, will reach his teacher's level.

41'Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye, with never a thought for the great plank in your own? 42How can you say to your brother, "My dear brother, let me take the speck out of your eye", when you are blind to the plank in your own? You hypocrite! First take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's.

A Tree Known by its Fruit  Lk.6.43-45[ Lk.6.43-45 → ] - Mt.7.17-20, Mt.12.34b-35

43'There is no such thing as a good tree producing worthless fruit, nor yet a worthless tree producing good fruit. 44For each tree is known by its own fruit: you do not gather figs from thistles, and you do not pick grapes from brambles. 45A good man produces good from the store of good within himself; and an evil man from evil within produces evil. For the words that the mouth utters come from the overflowing of the heart.

The Two Foundations  Lk.6.46-49 (Galilee)[ Lk.6.46-49 → ] - Mt.7.24-27

46'Why do you keep calling me "Lord, Lord"—and never do what I tell you? 47Everyone who comes to me and hears what I say, and acts upon it—I will show you what he is like. 48He is like a man who, in building his house, dug deep and laid the foundations on rock. When the flood came, the river burst upon that house, but could not shift it, because it had been soundly built. 49But he who hears and does not act is like a man who built his house on the soil without foundations. As soon as the river burst upon it, the house collapsed, and fell with a great crash.'
