John the Baptist Beheaded

1 aAt that Itime bHerod the tetrarch heard the news about Jesus, 2 and said to his servants, “aThis is John the Baptist; Ihe has risen from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him.”

3 ¶ For when aHerod had John arrested, he bound him and put him bin prison because of cHerodias, the wife of his brother Philip. 4 For John had been saying to him, “aIt is not lawful for you to have her.” 5 Although Herod wanted to put him to death, he feared the crowd, because they regarded IJohn as aa prophet.

15 ¶ When it was evening, the disciples came to Him and said, “This place is desolate and the hour is already Ilate; so send the crowds away, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” 16 But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away; you give them [something] to eat!” 17 They *said to Him, “We have here only afive loaves and two fish.” 18 And He said, “Bring them here to Me.” 19 Ordering the Ipeople to IIsit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He ablessed [the food], and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples [gave them] to the crowds, 20 and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full abaskets. 21 There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children.

Jesus Walks on the Water

22aImmediately He Imade the disciples get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side, while He sent the crowds away. 23 After He had sent the crowds away, aHe went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone. 24 But the boat was already Ia long distance from the land, IIbattered by the waves; for the wind was IIIacontrary. 25 And in athe Ifourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. 26 When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is aa ghost!” And they cried out Iin fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, aTake courage, it is I; bdo not be afraid.”

28 ¶ Peter said to Him, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” 29 And He said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” 31 Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and *said to him, aYou of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32 When they got into the boat, the wind stopped. 33 And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “You are certainly aGod’s Son!”

Herod's opinion of Christ.

1 ¶ At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus, 2 And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

[1] Mk 6:14; 8:15; Lk 3:1; 9:7; 13:31; 23:8, 15; Ac 4:27.
[2] Mt 11:11; 16:14; Mk 8:28; Jn 10:41.

Wherefore John the Baptist was beheaded.

3 ¶ For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put [him] in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife. 4 For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her. 5 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet. 6 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod. 7 Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask. 8 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger. 9 And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded [it] to be given [her]. 10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison. 11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought [it] to her mother. 12 And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.

Jesus departeth into a desert place:

13 ¶ When Jesus heard [of it], he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard [thereof], they followed him on foot out of the cities. 14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

where he feedeth five thousand men with five loaves and two fishes.

15 ¶ And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. 16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat. 17 And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. 18 He said, Bring them hither to me. 19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to [his] disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. 21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

He walketh on the sea to his disciples:

22 ¶ And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. 23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. 24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth [his] hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? 32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. 33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
