Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:2 - 'I have compassion upon the multitude, because now three days they do continue with me, and they have not what they may eat;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:3 - and if I shall let them away fasting to their home, they will faint in the way, for certain of them are come from far.'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:4 - And his disciples answered him, 'Whence shall any one be able these here to feed with bread in a wilderness?'

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:16 - and they were reasoning with one another, saying -- 'Because we have no loaves.'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:17 - And Jesus having known, saith to them, 'Why do ye reason, because ye have no loaves? do ye not yet perceive, nor understand, yet have ye your heart hardened?
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:18 - Having eyes, do ye not see? and having ears, do ye not hear? and do ye not remember?
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:19 - When the five loaves I did brake to the five thousand, how many hand-baskets full of broken pieces took ye up?' they say to him, 'Twelve.'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:20 - 'And when the seven to the four thousand, how many hand-baskets full of broken pieces took ye up?' and they said, 'Seven.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:23 - and having taken the hand of the blind man, he led him forth without the village, and having spit on his eyes, having put his hands on him, he was questioning him if he doth behold anything:
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:24 - and he, having looked up, said, 'I behold men, as I see trees, walking.'
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:25 - Afterwards again he put his hands on his eyes, and made him look up, and he was restored, and discerned all things clearly,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:26 - and he sent him away to his house, saying, 'Neither to the village mayest thou go, nor tell it to any in the village.'

(Mat 16:21–23; Luk 9:21, 22 )
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:31 - and began to teach them, that it behoveth the Son of Man to suffer many things, and to be rejected by the elders, and chief priests, and scribes, and to be killed, and after three days to rise again;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:32 - and openly he was speaking the word. And Peter having taken him aside, began to rebuke him,
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:33 - and he, having turned, and having looked on his disciples, rebuked Peter, saying, 'Get behind me, Adversary, because thou dost not mind the things of God, but the things of men.'
(Mat 16:24–27; Luk 9:23–26 )
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:34 - And having called near the multitude, with his disciples, he said to them, 'Whoever doth will to come after me -- let him disown himself, and take up his cross, and follow me;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:35 - for whoever may will to save his life shall lose it; and whoever may lose his life for my sake and for the good news' sake, he shall save it;
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:36 - for what shall it profit a man, if he may gain the whole world, and forfeit his life?
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:37 - Or what shall a man give as an exchange for his life?
Unchecked Copy BoxMar 8:38 - for whoever may be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man also shall be ashamed of him, when he may come in the glory of his Father, with the holy messengers.'
