A Prayer
of Jesus
I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and
 understanding and revealed them to babes; yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will.

Jesus and John the Baptist

Matthew 11

[2] Now John having heard in prison the works of Christ, having sent through his disciples
[3] he said to him: Are you the coming [one] or do we look for another? 
[4] And answering Jesus said to them: Go tell John what you hear and see: 
[5] The blind see again, and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and deaf hear, and dead are raised and [the] poor are good-newsed.
[6] And blessed is he who shall not be offended in me.
[7] Now when these are going, Jesus began to be saying to the crowd concerning John: What did you come out into the wilderness to see, [a] reed shaken by the wind?
[8] So what did you come out to behold? [a] man clothed in soft [things]? Behold those wearing soft [things] are in the houses of the kings.
[9] So why did you come out? To behold [a] prophet? Yes, I say to you, and much more than a prophet.
[10] This is he of whom it is written:

Behold I send my messenger before my face,
Who will prepare the way before me.

[11] Truly I say to you, there has not arisen [one] born of women greater than John the baptizing [one]. But the least in the kingdom of the heavens is greater than he.
[12] But from the days of John the baptizing [one] until now the kingdom of the heavens suffers violence, and violent men ravish her.
[13] For all the prophets and law until John prophesied [it].
[14] And if you wish to accept [it], he himself is Elijah, the [one] destined to be coming.
[15] The [one] having ears to be hearing let him be hearing.

The Sending of the Twelve Apostles
Luke 9

[1] But calling together the twelve he gave to them power and authority over all demons and to be healing diseases,
[2] and he sent them to be preaching the kingdom of God and to be healing,
[3] and said to them: Be taking nothing to the way, neither staff, nor knapsack, nor loaf, nor silver, nor to have two tunics.
[4] And into whose house you enter, there be remaining and from there be departing.
[5] And whoever receive you not, departing from that city be shaking off the dust from your feet as [a] witness upon them.
[6] But going out they were going through the towns proclaiming and healing everywhere.

The Narrow Gate

Matthew 7

[13] Enter in through the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the road leading to destruction, and many are those entering through it.
[14] And confined is the way leading to zoe-life, and few are those finding it.

Going to Jerusalem

Luke 13

[31] In that hour certain Pharisees came and said to him: Get away from here, for Herod wants to kill you.
[32] And he said to them: Go and tell that fox: Behold, I cast out demons and perform healings today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will be completed.
[33] Neverthess I must go [on my way] today and tomorrow and the next day, for it cannot be that [a] prophet should perish away from Jerusalem.
[34] Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the [city] that kills the prophets and stones those sent to it. How often would I have gathered your children together as [a] hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not!
[35] Behold, your house is forsaken. And I tell you, you will not see me until you say: Blessed [is] the one coming in the name of the Lord!

Jesus' Parting Words to His Disciples

John 14

[1] Let not your heart be being troubled. Be believing in God and be believing in me.
[2] In my father's house[hold] are many dwelling-places. If [it were] not [so], I would have told you,
[3] because I go to prepare [a] place for you. And if I go and prepare [a] place for you, again do I come and will take you to myself, in order that where I am you may be also.
[4] And where I go you know the way.
[5] Thomas says to him: Lord, we do not know where you are going. How do we know the way?
[6] Jesus says to him: I am the way, the truth and the zoe-life; no one comes to the father except through me.
[7] If you have known me, you will also know my father. And from now [on] you know him and have seen him.
