Christ healeth the withered hand,
Mark 3:1 And he entred agayne into the synagoge, & there was a man there whiche had a wyddred hande. Mark 3:2 And they watched him to se, whether he woulde heale him on the Saboth daye, that they myght accuse hym. Mark 3:3 And he sayde vnto the man whiche had the widdred hande: aryse and stand in þe myddes. Mark 3:4 And he sayde to them: whether is it lawful to do a good dede on the Saboth dayes, or an euyll? to saue lyfe or kyll? But they held theyr peace. Mark 3:5 And he loked rounde aboute on them angerly, mournynge on the blindnes of theyr hertes, & said to þe man: stretch forth thyne hand. And he stretched it out. And hys hande was restored euen as whole as the other. Mark 3:6 And the Pharyses departed, and strayght waye gathered a counsel with them that belonged to Herode agaynste hym that they might destroye hym. Mark 3:7 And Iesus auoyded with hys disciples to the sea. And a great multitude folowed him from Galile, and from Iurie, Mark 3:8 and from Hierusalem, and from Idumea, and from beyonde Iordane, & they that dwelled aboute Tyre and Sydon, a great multitude: whiche when they had hearde what thynges he dyd came vnto hym. Mark 3:9 And he commaunded hys disciples, that a shypp shoulde wayte on hym, because of the people, leste they shoulde throunge him.
and many other infirmities:
Mark 3:10 For he had healed many, in so much that they preased vpon hym, for to touche hym as manye as had plages.
rebuketh the unclean spirits:
Mark 3:11 And when the vncleane spirites sawe hym: they fell doune before hym, and cryed, sayinge: thou art the sonne of God Mark 3:12 And he straytly charged them that they should not vtter hym.
chooseth his twelve Apostles:
Mark 3:13 And he wente vp into a mountayne, and called vnto hym whome he woulde, and they came vnto hym. Mark 3:14 And he ordeyned the .xij. that they shoulde be with hym, & that he myghte sende them to preache, Mark 3:15 and that they myghte haue power to heale sicknesses, and to caste oute deuyls. Mark 3:16 And he gaue Simon, to name Peter. Mark 3:17 And he called Iames the sonne of Zebede and Iohn, Iames brother, and gaue them Boanarges to name: whiche is to saye, the sonnes of thounder, Mark 3:18 and Andrew, and Philip, & Bartelmew, and Mathew, & Thomas, & Iames the sonne of Alphey & Taddeus, & Symon of Cane, Mark 3:19 and Iudas Iscaryoth, which same also betrayed hym. And they came into an house, Mark 3:20 & þe people assembled together agayne, so greately þt they had not leasure so much as to eate bread. Mark 3:21 And when they that longed vnto hym hearde of it, they went out to holde him. For they thought he had bene besyde hym selfe.
convinceth the blasphemy of casting out devils by Beelzebub:
Mark 3:22 And the scribes which came from Ierusalem, sayde: he hathe Beelzebub, and by the power of the chiefe deuyll casteth out deuyls. Mark 3:23 And he called them vnto hym, and sayd vnto them in similitudes. How can Sathan dryue out Satan? Mark 3:24 For if a realme be deuyded agaynst it selfe, that realme can not endure. Mark 3:25 Or yf a house be deuyded against it selfe, that house cannot continue: Mark 3:26 So yf Satan make insurreccyon agaynst hym selfe and be deuyded, he can not contynue, but is at an ende. Mark 3:27 No man can enter into a strong mans house and take awaye hys goodes, except he fyrste bynd that stronge man, and then spoyle hys house. Mark 3:28 Verely I saye vnto you: al synnes shalbe forgeuen vnto mens children and blaspheme wherwith they blaspheme: Mark 3:29 But he that blasphemeth the holye ghost, shall neuer haue forgeuenes, but is in daunger of eternal damnacion, Mark 3:30 because they said: he had an vncleane spirite.
and sheweth who are his brother, sister, and mother.
Mark 3:31 Then came his mother and his brethren, & stode wtout, and sent vnto hym & called hym. Mark 3:32 And the people sate about him, & said vnto him: beholde thy mother and thy brethren seke for þe without. Mark 3:33 And he answered them saying: who is my mother and my brethren? Mark 3:34 And he loked rounde about on hys disciples, which sate in compasse about him, & sayd: behold my mother & my brethren. Mark 3:35 For whosoeuer doth þe wil of god he is my brother, my syster, and mother.
