JESUS FORETELLS HIS DEATH AND RESURRECTION-THE

SONS OF ZEBEDEE.

BEHOLD, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things shall be accomplished which were written by the prophets concerning the Son of man. For he shall be delivered to the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and scourged, and spit upon: and after they have scourged him, they will put him to death; and the third day he shall rise again.

BEHOLD, we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be betrayed to the chief priests and the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death; and shall deliver him to the Gentiles, to be mocked, and scourged, and crucified; and the third day he shall rise again.

BEHOLD, we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be betrayed to the chief priests, and to the scribes and ancients, and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles.

do for you? ... You know not what you ask. Can you drink of the chalice that I drink of: or be baptised with the baptism wherewith I am baptised? ... You shall indeed drink of the chalice that I drink of: and with the baptism wherewith I am baptised, you shall be baptised: but to sit on my right or left hand, is not mine to give to you, but to them for whom it is prepared by my Father.

You know that they who seem to rule over the Gentiles, lord it over them: and their princes have power over them. But it is not so among you: but whosoever will be greater, shall be your minister. And whosoever will be first among you, shall be the servant of all, For the Son of man also is not come to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a redemption for many.

ZACHEUS, make haste and come down; for this day I must abide in thy house. ... This day is salvation come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

his citizens hated him: and they sent an embassage, after him, saying: We will not have this man to reign over us. And it came to pass, that he returned, having received the kingdom: and he commanded his servants to be called, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. And the first came, saying: Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. And he said to him : Well done, thou good servant; because thou hast been faithful in a little, thou shalt have power over ten cities. And the second came, saying: Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. And he said to him: Be thou also over five cities. And another came, saying: Lord, behold here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin; for I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up what thou didst not lay down, and thou reapest that which thou didst not sow. He saith to him: Out of thy own mouth I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up what I laid not down, and reaping that which I did not sow: and why, then, didst thou not give my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have exacted it with usury? And he said

But I say to you, that to every one that hath shall be given, and he shall abound: and from him that hath not, even that which he hath shall be taken from him. But as for those mine enemies, who would not have me reign over them, bring them hither, and kill them before me.

What will ye that I should do to you?-What wilt thou that I should do to thee? ... Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole.

Let her alone; why do you molest her? She hath wrought a good work upon me. For the poor you have always with you: and whensoever you will, you may do them good; but me you have not always.62 What she had, she hath done; she is come beforehand to anoint my body for the burial. Amen I say to you: Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, that also which she hath done shall be told for a memorial of her.

Go ye into the village that is over against you, and immediately you shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her,—on which no man ever hath sitten: - loose them and bring them to me.

them go.

I say to you, that if these shall hold their peace, the stones will cry out.—Yea, have you never read, Out of the mouth of infants and of sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

IF thou also hadst known, and that in this thy day, the things that are to thy peace; but now they are hidden from thy eyes. For the days shall come upon thee: and thy enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and straiten thee on every side, and beat thee flat to the ground, and thy children who are in thee: and they shall not leave in thee a stone upon a stone: because thou hast not known the time of thy visitation.
