A. D. 32. “ by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To J. 10.

“ him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear 3
“ his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by
“ name, and leadeth them out. And when he 4

putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before
“ them, and the sheep follow him: for they
“know his voice. And a stranger will they not 5
“ follow, but will flee from him: for they know
“ not the voice of strangers.” This parable spake 6
Jesus unto them: but they understood not what
things they were which he spake unto them.

Then said Jesus unto them again, “Verily, 7
“ verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the

sheep. All that ever came before me are 8

thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not

86. The parable of the good Samaritan.

L. 10. AND, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, “What 26

“ is written in the law ? how readest thou?" * Deu. 6.5. and he answering said, “Thou shalt love the 27

Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all

thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all Lev. 19. thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And 28

he said unto him, “Thou hast answered right: · Lev.18.5. “ this do, and thou shalt live.” But he, willing 29 Ezek. 20. to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is 11, 13, 21. my neighbour ? And Jesus answering said, “ A 30 Rom. 10.5. « certain man went down from Jerusalem to

Jericho, and fell among 2 thieves, which stripped “ him of his raiment, and wounded him, and de

parted, leaving him half dead. And by chance 31
“ there came down a certain priest that way:

and when he saw him, " he passed by on the
“ other side. And likewise a Levite, when he 32

was at the place, came and looked on him,
“ and passed by on the other side. But a cer- 33
“ tain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where
“ he was: and when he saw him, he had com-
“ passion on him, and went to him, and bound 34

up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and
“ set him on his own beast, and brought him to

an inn, and took care of him. And on the 35
“ morrow when he departed, he took out two

pence, and gave them to the host, and said
“ unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever
“ thou spendest more, when I come again, I
“ will repay thee. Which now of these three, 36
“ thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that
“ fell among the thieves?” And he said, He 37
that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus
unto him, “Go, and do thou likewise.”

87. Christ teacheth to pray. L. 11.

And it came to pass, that, as he was praying A. D. 33. in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, 2 as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, “When ye pray, say, Our Father “ which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy ? kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in 3“ heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our 4“ daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we “ also forgive every one that is indebted to us. “ And lead us not into temptation; but deliver

us from evil.” And he said unto them, “Which “ of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto “ him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, 6" lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine

“ in his journey is come to me, and I have 7“ nothing to set before him? And he from “ within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: “ the door is now shut, and my children are

“ with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. 8“ I say unto you, Though he will not rise and

give him, because he is his friend, yet because
“ of his importunity he will rise and give him
g“ as many as he needeth. “And I say unto you, “Jam. 1.6.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye 22.
“ shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto
10 “ you. For every one that asketh receiveth;

" and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that
11“ knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall

“ ask bread of any of you that is a father, will

“ he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will
12 “ he for a fish give him a serpent? or if he shall
13“ ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion ? If

ye then, being evil, know how to give good
gifts unto your children: how much more

your heavenly Father give the Holy Spi-
“ rit to them that ask him ?”

88. He healeth the crooked woman. Parable of

the mustard seed, and of the leaven. And he was teaching in one of the synagogues L. 13. on the sabbath. And, behold, there was a woman 10, 11 which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. And when Jesus saw her, he 12

called her to him, and said unto her, “Woman,
* Acts 9.17.“ thou art loosed from thine infirmity.” And 13

he laid his hands on her: and immediately she
was made straight, and glorified God. And the 14
ruler of the synagogue answered with indigna-

tion, because that Jesus had healed on the sab• Ex. 20.9. bath day, and said unto the people, There are

six days in which men ought to work: in them
therefore come and be healed, and not on the
sabbath day. The Lord then answered him, and 15
said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you

on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from
“ the stall, and lead him away to watering ? and 16

ought not this woman, being a daughter of
“ Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these

eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on
“ the sabbath day?" And when he had said 17
these things, all his adversaries were ashamed:
and all the people rejoiced for all the
things that were done by him.

Then said he, “ Unto what is the kingdom of 18
“God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?
“ it is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man 19

took, and cast into his garden; and it grew,
“ and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the
“air lodged in the branches of it.” And again 20
he said, “Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom
“ of God? it is like leaven, which a woman 21
“ took and hid in three measures of meal, till
“ the whole was leavened."
