and as he approached the descent of the Mount of Olives all the multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God in a loud voice for all the miracles they had seen,
saying: "Blessed be he who comes as king, in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the heights above!"
I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?'
He said this and then, while they were looking on, he was taken up and a cloud lifted him from their sight.
God placed some in the church first as apostles, secondly as prophets, thirdly as teachers, then miracle-workers, then those with gifts of healing, helpers, administrators, speakers of different kinds of tongues.
Then I saw come out of the mouth of the Dragon and out of the mouth of the Beast and out of the mouth of the False Prophet three impure spirits like frogs.
They are the spirits of demons who work miracles, and they go forth to the kings of the whole habitable world to gather them for the battle of the great day of God the Almighty.
The prayer of faith will save the sick and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins they will be forgiven him.
Confess your sins to one another and pray for one another in order to be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man has great power.
To one are given, through the Spirit, words of wisdom, to another words of knowledge by the same Spirit,
to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the same Spirit,
to another works of power, to another prophecy, to another the discernment of spirits, to another varieties of tongues, to another interpretation of tongues.
But when they saw him walking on the lake, they thought that it was a ghost and cried out.
For they all saw him and were frightened. But he immediately spoke to them and said, "Courage! It is I. Do not be afraid."
Jesus heard it and said to him, "Never fear. Only believe and she will be saved."
Elijah was a man of the same weaknesses as ours, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months.
Then he prayed again and heaven gave rain and the land brought forth its fruits.
Jesus said to them, "I tell you truly, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but if you say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and thrown into the sea,' that will happen,
Because of their unbelief he worked there but few miracles.
Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to him, "Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you."
He answered them, "A wicked and adulterous generation seeks for a sign. But no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
For as Jonah was in the belly of the whale three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights.
This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana in Galilee and displayed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.
Jesus said, "Do not tell him not to do it. For no one who does a miracle in my name can quickly speak evil of me.
For whoever is not against us is for us.
The signs of an apostle were performed among you in all patience by miracles and wonders and deeds of power.
Then the other disciple who had come first to the tomb entered, and he saw and believed.
For they did not yet know the Scripture that he must rise from the dead.
Jesus looked at them and said, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
10 He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.
11 And a woman was there who had had a spirit of weakness eighteen years, and was bent together and could not stand up straight.
12 When Jesus saw her he called to her and said, "Woman, you have been freed from your weakness,"
13 and he laid his hands on her. Immediately she was straightened and gave glory to God.
14 But the synagogue Director, angry because Jesus was healing on the Sabbath, said to the crowd, "There are six days in which work should be done. On those days come and be healed, but not on the Sabbath day."
15 The Master answered him, "Hypocrite, does not each of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the manger and lead him away and water him?
16 And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan had bound for eighteen years, to have been freed from this bond on the Sabbath day?"
17 As he said this, all his opposers were ashamed, and all the crowd rejoiced at all the glorious things that he did.
Jesus said to him, "Because you have seen me you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
Jesus did before the disciples many other signs which are not written in this book.
But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life through his name.
Then the people, seeing the sign that he had done, said, "This is truly the prophet who was to come into the world!"
He said to them, "Because of your lack of faith. I tell you truly, if you have faith like a mustard seed you will say to this mountain, 'Remove from here to there,' and it will remove, and nothing will be impossible for you."
Jesus said, " 'If you can'! All things are possible for one who believes."
Taking the five loaves and the fishes, he looked up to heaven and blessed them and broke them and gave to the disciples to distribute to the crowd.
They all ate and had abundance, and what was left over was picked up \'97 twelve baskets of fragments.
All this happened in fulfillment of what the Lord had spoken through the prophet:
"Behold the virgin will conceive and will bear a son, and they will call his name Immanuel" .
Jesus looked at them and said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God."
Fellow Israelites, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene was a man proved to be sent to you from God by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through him in the midst of you, as you yourselves know.
He said, "The things that are impossible with men are possible with God."
After this prayer the place in which they were assembled was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the message of God with courageous freedom.
Through the hands of Paul, God did miracles of no ordinary kind,
so that handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched his body were carried to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits departed.
For "no word that comes from God will fail."
20 Then he began to reproach the cities in which most of his miracles had been done, because they had not repented:
21 "Alas for you, Chorazin! Alas for you, Bethsaida! For if in Tyre and Sidon the miracles had been done which were done in you, they would long ago have repented in sackcloth and ashes.
22 But I tell you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you.
23 And you, Capernaum! No, you will not be exalted to heaven. You will be abased to Hades. Because if those miracles which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
24 But I tell you it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you."
