1. In those days, the multitude being very great and having nothing to eat, Jesus called His disciples to Him and said to them,
2. I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat.
3. And if I send them away hungry to their own houses, they will faint on the way; for some of them have come from afar."
4. Then His disciples answered Him, "How can one satisfy these people with bread here in the wilderness?"
6. So He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. And He took the seven loaves and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and they set them before the multitude.
11. Then the Pharisees came out and began to dispute with Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, testing Him.
12. But He sighed deeply in His spirit, and said, "Why does this generation seek a sign? Assuredly, I say to you, no sign shall be given to this generation."
14. Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, and they did not have more than one loaf with them in the boat.
15. Then He charged them, saying, "Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod."
17. But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, "Why do you reason because you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive nor understand? Is your heart still hardened?
19. When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?" They said to Him, "Twelve."
20. Also, when I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of fragments did you take up?" And they said, "Seven."
23. So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything.
25. Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly.
26. Then He sent him away to his house, saying, "Neither go into the town, nor tell anyone in the town."
27. Now Jesus and His disciples went out to the towns of Caesarea Philippi; and on the road He asked His disciples, saying to them, "Who do men say that I am?"
29. He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered and said to Him, "You are the Christ."
31. And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.
33. But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, "Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men."
34. When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, "Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
35. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it.
