And he closed the book, and gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, this day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears, And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth And they said, is not this Joseph's son ? And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, physician, heal thyself: Whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in ihy country. And he said, verily, I say unto you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land ; but unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow. And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian. And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill, whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong But he, passing through the midst of them, went his way, and came down 10 Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days. And they were astonished at his doctrine: For his word was with power.

And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw iwo brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew bis brother, casting a net into the sea : for they were fishers. And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And thej straighưway left their nets, and followed him. And going on from thence, he saw other iwo brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.

devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven. Behold, I give unto you power 10 tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding, in this re. joice not that the spirits are subject unto you; bat rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes : even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered to me of my Father : aud no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son. and he to whom the Son will reveal him,

Jee ; and the mother of Jesus was there. And both Jesus was calied, and his disciples, to the marriage. Aud when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, they have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, woman, what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And there were set there six water pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins a piece. Jesus saith unto them, fill the water pots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was, (but the servants which drew the water knew) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, and saith unto him, every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse : but thou hast kept the good wine until now. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifesied forth his glory; and bis disciples believed on him,

shewest thou onto us, seeing that thou doest these things ? Jesus answered and said unto them, destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, forty and six years was this temple in building, and will thou rear it up in three days ? but he spake of the temple of his body. When, therefore, he was risen from the dead, bis disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

I CORINTHIANS XV. 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44.—But some man will say, How are the

dead raised up? And with what body do they come? Thou tool, that which thou sowest is not

quickened except it die. And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain : but God giveth'it a body as it hath pleased Him, and to every seed his own body. All desh is not the saine flesh. but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial : but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one

glory of the sun, and another

glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead: it is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption : it is sown in dishonour, it is raised in glory : it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power : it is sown a patural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

Then said Jesus unto him, except ye see signs and wonders ye will not believe. The nobleman saith unto bim, sir, come down ere my child die. Jesus saith unto him, go thy way, thy sou liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went bis way. And as he was now going down his servants met him, and told him, saying, thy son liveth. 'Then inquired he of them ihe hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, yesterday, at the seventh bour the fever left him. So the father knew that it was at the same hour in the which Jesus said unto him, thy son liveth ; and himself believed, and his whole house.

when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a Centurion, beseecbing him, and saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented, and Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The Centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: But speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me, and I say to this man, go, and he goeth, and to another, come, and he coineth ; and to my servant, do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it he marvelled, and said to them that followed, verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no not in Israel. And I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven : but the chil. dren of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. And Jesus said unto the Centurion, go thy way, and as thou hast believed, so be it done

upto thee. And his servant was healed in the seltsame hour.–Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum. And a certain Centurion's servani, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. And when he heard of Jesus, be sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant. And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, that he was worthy for whom he should do this : for he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue. Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the Centurion sent friends to bim, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself; for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my root: wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee; but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed. For 1 also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers; and I say unto one, go, and he goeth : and to another, come, and he coineth ; and to my servant, do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard these things he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no not in Israel. And ihey that were sent returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.

Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. ' And a great multitude followed him, because they saw bis miracles which he did on them that were diseased. And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh. When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy

bread, that these may eat? (and this he said to prove him : for he himself knew what he would do.)
Philip answered him, ewo hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of
them may take a little. One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him, there
is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes, but what are they among so
many? And Jesus said, make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So
the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had
given thanks he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and like-
wise of the fishes as much as they would. When they were filled, he said unto his disciples.
gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. Therefore they gathered them logeiher,
and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and
above unto them that had eaten. Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did,
said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.
