Christ teacheth the people out of Peter's ship:
Luke 5:1 It came to passe as the people preased vpon him to heare the worde of God, that he stode by the lake of Genezareth: Luke 5:2 and sawe two shyppes stande by the lake syde, but the fisher men were gone out of them, and were washynge their nettes. Luke 5:3 And he entred into one of the shyppes, which pertayned to Symon, and prayed him, that he woulde thruste out a lytle from the lande. And he sat doune and taught the people out of the shyppe.
in a miraculous taking of fishes, sheweth how he will make him and his partners fishermen of men:
Luke 5:4 When he had left speakynge, he sayed vnto Simon: launce out into the depe, and let slip your nettes to make a draught. Luke 5:5 And Simon aunswered and sayed vnto hym: Mayster, we haue laboured all nyght, and haue taken nothynge. Neuerthelater at thy worde I wyll lose forth the net. Luke 5:6 And when they had so done, they enclosed a greate multytude of fyshes. And their net brake: Luke 5:7 but they made sygnes to their fellowes which were in the other shyp that they shoulde come and helpe them. And they came and fylled both the shyppes that they sonke againe. Luke 5:8 When Simon Peter sawe that, he fell doune at Iesus knees saiynge: Lorde go Luke 5:9 from me for I am a synfull man. For he was vtterlye astonyed and all that were with hym at the draughte of fyshe, which they toke: Luke 5:10 and so was Iames and Iohn the sonnes of Zebede, which were parteners with Symon. And Iesus sayed vnto Simon: feare not, from hence forth thou shalt catche men. Luke 5:11 And they brought the shyppes to lande, and forsoke all and folowed hym.
cleanseth the leper:
Luke 5:12 And it fortuned as he was in a certayne citye: beholde, there was a man full of leprosye: and when he had spyed Iesus, he fell on his face, and besought him saiynge: Lorde, if thou wylt thou canst make me cleane. Luke 5:13 And he stretthed forth the hande and touched him saiynge: I wyl, be thou cleane. And immediatlye the leprosye departed from him. Luke 5:14 And he warned hym that he shoulde tell no man but that he should go and shewe him selfe to the pryeste and offer for his clensyng, accordinge as Moyses commaundement was, for a witnes vnto them. Luke 5:15 But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him, & much people came together to heare and to be healed of him, of their infirmyties.
prayeth in the wilderness:
Luke 5:16 And he kepte him selfe aparte in the wyldernesse, and gaue him selfe to prayer. Luke 5:17 And it happened on a certayne daye, that he taught, and there sate the phariseis and the doctours of lawe, which were come out of all the tounes of Galyle, Iurye, and Hierusalem. And the power of the Lorde was to heale them.
healeth one sick of the palsy:
Luke 5:18 And beholde men brought a man liynge in his bedde which was taken with a palsey: & sought meanes to brynge him in, and to laye him before him. Luke 5:19 And when they could not finde by what way they might bring him in, because of the prease, they went vp on the toppe of þe house, and let him doune thorowe the tyling, bedde & all in the middest before Iesus. Luke 5:20 When he sawe their faith, he sayed to him: man, thy sinnes are forgeuen the. Luke 5:21 And the scribes and pharyseis began to thinke saiynge: What felowe is this which speaketh blasphemy? who can forgeue synnes but God onlye? Luke 5:22 When Iesus perceiued their thoughtes, he aunswered and sayd vnto them: What thinke ye in your hertes? Luke 5:23 Whether is it easyer to say, thy synnes are forgeuen the, or to saye: ryse & walke? Luke 5:24 But that ye may knowe that the sonne of man hath power to forgeue sinnes on earth, he said to the sycke of the paulsye, I say to the, aryse, take vp thy bed & go home to thy house. Luke 5:25 And immediatlye he rose vp before them, and toke vp his bed wheron he laye, and departed to his owne house praysyng God. Luke 5:26 And they were all amased, and they lauded God & were filled with fear saiyng: We haue sene straung thinges to daye.
calleth Matthew the publican:
Luke 5:27 And after that he wente forth and sawe a Publican named Leui, sittinge at the receite of custome and saide vnto him: folowe me. Luke 5:28 And he left al, rose vp and folowed him.
eateth with sinners, as being the physician of souls:
Luke 5:29 And the same Leui made him a great feaste at home in his owne house. And ther was a great companye of publicans and of other that sate at meat with him. Luke 5:30 And the scribes and pharyseis murmured againste his disciples saiynge: Why eate ye, and drinke ye with publicans and sinners? Luke 5:31 Iesus aunswered and sayde vnto them: They that are whole nede not of the phisician: but thei that are sicke. Luke 5:32 I am not come to cal the rightuous, but synners to repentaunce.
Luke 5:33 Then they sayed vnto him: Why do the disciples of Ihon faste often and praye, and the disciples of the phariseis also: and thyne eate and drinke?
foretelleth the fastings and afflictions of the Apostles after his ascension:
Luke 5:34 And he sayed vnto them: Can ye make the children of the weddinge faste, as longe as the bridgrome is present with them? Luke 5:35 The dayes will come, when the bridgrome shall be taken awaye from them: Then shall they faste in those dayes.
and likeneth fainhearted and weak disciples to old bottles and worn garments.
Luke 5:36 Then spake he vnto them in a symylytude. No man putteth a pece of a newe garmente, into an olde vesture: for if he do, then breaketh he the newe and the pece that was taken out of the newe agreeth not with the olde. Luke 5:37 Also no man poureth newe wine into olde vessels. For if he do, the newe wyne breaketh the vessels, and runneth out it selfe, and the vessels perishe: Luke 5:38 But newe wyne muste be poured into newe vessels, and both are preserued. Luke 5:39 Also no man that drinketh olde wyne, strayght waye can awaye with newe, for he sayeth the olde is pleasaunter.
