Matthew

Matthew 21:12-14
12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. 13 And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’”

14 Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.


The blind and the lame came to Jesus at the temple / in the porticoes and courts of the temple area, and Jesus healed them.

Matthew 17:14-21
14 And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, 15 “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. 16 So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.”

17 Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” 18 And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.

19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”

20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. 21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”


Jesus to His disciples:

“Truly I tell you / I assure you and most solemnly say to you, if you have living faith as small as a mustard seed / the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and if it is God’s will, it will move.

Nothing will be impossible for you.

But this kind of demon does not go except by prayer and fasting.”

Matthew 15:29-31
29 Jesus departed from there, skirted the Sea of Galilee, and went up on the mountain and sat down there. 30 Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus’ feet, and He healed them. 31 So the multitude marveled when they saw the mute speaking, the maimed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.


Great crowds came to Jesus, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute and many others, and they laid them / put them at His feet; and Jesus healed them.

So the people were amazed / the crowd was amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled made well / restored, the lame walking and the blind seeing.

And they praised and glorified the God of Israel.

Matthew 15:21-28
21 Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed.”

23 But He answered her not a word.

And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, “Send her away, for she cries out after us.”

24 But He answered and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, help me!”

26 But He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”

27 And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”

28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.


The woman came and knelt / began to kneel down before Jesus.

She: “Lord, help me!”

Jesus: “It is not right / good, appropriate, fair to take the children’s bread and toss it / throw it to the pet dogs.”

She: “Yes it is, Lord but even the pet dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”

Jesus: “Woman, you have great faith / your faith, your personal trust and confidence in My power is great! Your request is granted / It will be done for you as you wish.”

And her daughter was healed at that moment / from that moment.
