For dyvers of the came from farre. Mark 8:4 And his disciples answered him: where shuld a man have breade here in the wildernes to satisfie these? Mark 8:5 And he axed them: how many loves have ye? They sayde: seven. Mark 8:6 And he commaunded the people to syt doune on the grounde. And he toke the .vii. loves gave thankes brake and gave to his disciples to set before them. And they dyd set the before the people. Mark 8:7 And they had a feawe smale fysshes. And he blessed them and comaunded them also to be set before them. Mark 8:8 And they ate and were suffysed: And they toke vp yf the broken meate that was lefte .vii. baskettes full. Mark 8:9 And they yt ate were in nomber aboute fowre thousand. And he sent them awaye.
refuseth to give a sign to the Pharisees:

Mark 8:11 And the pharises cam forth and begane to dispute with him sekinge of him a signe fro heven and temptinge him. Mark 8:12 And he sygthed in his sprete and sayde: why doth this generacion seke a signe? Verely I saye vnto you ther shall no signe be geven vnto this generacion. Mark 8:13 And he lefte the and went into the ship agayne and departed over the water.
admonisheth his disciples to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod:
Mark 8:14 And they had forgotte to take breed wt the nether had they in the ship with them more then one loofe. Mark 8:15 And he charged the sayinge. Take hede and beware of ye leven of ye pharises and of ye leve of Herode. Mark 8:16 And they reasoned amonge the selves sayinge: we have no breed Mark 8:17 And whe Iesus knewe yt he sayde vnto the: why take ye thought because ye have no bread? perceave ye not yet nether vnderstonde?

How many basketes of the levinges of broken meate toke ye vp? they sayde .vii. Mark 8:21 And he sayde vnto the: how is it yt ye vnderstonde not?
giveth a blind man his sight:
Mark 8:22 And he came to Bethsaida and they brought a blynde man vnto him and desyred him to touche him. Mark 8:23 And he caught the blynde by the honde and leade him out of the toune and spat in his eyes and put his hondes apon him and axed him whether he saw ought. Mark 8:24 And he loked vp and sayde: I se ye men: For I se the walke as they were trees. Mark 8:25 After that he put his hondes agayne apon his eyes and made him see. And he was restored to his sight and sawe every ma clerly. Mark 8:26 And he sent him home to his housse sayinge: nether goo into the toune nor tell it to eny in the toune.
acknowledgeth that he is the Christ, who should suffer and rise again:
Mark 8:27 And Iesus went out and his disciples into the tounes that longe to the cite called Cesarea Philippi. Aud by the waye he axed his disciples sayinge: whom do men saye yt I am? Mark 8:28 And they answered: some saye that thou arte Iohn Baptiste: some saye Helyas: and some one of the Prophetes. Mark 8:29 And he sayde vnto the: But whom saye ye that I am? Peter answered and sayd vnto him: Thou arte very Christe. Mark 8:30 And he charged them that they shuld tell no man of it. Mark 8:31 And he beganne to teache them how that the sonne of man must suffre many thinges and shuld be reproved of the elders and of the hye prestes and scribes and be kylled and after thre dayes aryse agayne. Mark 8:32 And he spake that sayinge openly. And Peter toke him asyde and began to chyde him. Mark 8:33 Then he tourned aboute and looked on his disciples and rebuked Peter sayinge: Goo after me Satan. For thou saverest not ye thinges of God but the thinges of men.
and exhorteth to patience in persecution for the profession of the Gospel.
Mark 8:34 And he called the people vnto him with his disciples also and sayd vnto them: Whosoever will folowe me let him forsake him sylfe and take vp his crosse and folowe me. Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his lyfe shall lose it But whosoever shall lose his lyfe for my sake and ye gospels ye same shall save it. Mark 8:36 What shall it profet a ma yf he shuld wynne all ye worlde and loose his awne soule? Mark 8:37 or els what shall a ma geve to redeme his soule agayne? Mark 8:38 Whosoever therfore shall be asshamed of me and of my wordes amonge this advoutrous and sinfull generacion: of him shall the sonne of man be ashamed when he cometh in the glory of his father wt the holy angels.
