282 - Jesus chooses the Twelve.

Kathleen's thoughts.

Matthew 12: 1-21
Mark 2: 23-28, 3: 1-19
Luke 6: 1-20

The question about the Sabbath Look, Your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath!

Or haven't you read in the Law that on Sabbath days the priests in the temple violate the Sabbath and are innocent?
O desire mercy and not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the innocent. For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.

The man with a paralysed hand Stand before us. Then He said to them., Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill? But they were silent.A man is worth far more than a sheep so it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.

But the Pharisees went out and plotted against Him how they might destroy Him

Multitudes healed

Jesus chooses the twelve apostles 
he appointed the Twelve.
To Simon, He gave the name Peter, and to James the son of Zebedee, and to his brother John, He gave the name Boanerges. (that is, "sons of Thunder) Andrew; Philip and Bartholomew; Matthew and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot who also betrayed Him.

Jesus teaches and heals

The Sermon on the Mount
Blessed are the poor in spirit, because the Kingdom of heaven is theirs. 'Blessed are those who mourn, because they will be comforted
Blessed are the gentle, because they will inherit the earth
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, because they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, because they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure i heart, because they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, because they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness, because the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt should lose its taste, how can it be made salty? It's no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled on by men.

You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lamp stand, and it give light for all who are in the house.
In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

Don't assume that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For I assure you; Until heaven  and earth pass away not the smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass from the law until all things are accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches people to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever practices and teaches the commandments will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the  scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
