disciples, `let us go over to the other side'. Leaving
the crowed behind, they took him along, just as he
was, in the boat. there were also other boats with
him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke
over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped.
Jesus was in the stern, with his head resting on a
cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him,
`teacher, do you not care that we are about to

Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea
Philippi. On the way, he asked them, `who do people say I am?'
They replied, ` some say john the Baptist; others say Elijah; and
still others, one of the prophets.'
`but what about you?' he asked. ` who do you say I am?'
Peter answered, `you are christ'.
Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him.
He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer
many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priest and
teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three
days rise again.. he spoke plainly about this, and peter took
him aside and began to rebuke him.
But when jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked
peter. `get behind me satan!' he said. `You do not have in mind
the things of God but the things of men.'…read more
After six days, Jesus took Peter, James and John with him
and led them up a high mountain, where they were all
alone. There he transfigured before them, his clothes
became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world
could bleach them, and there appeared before them
Elijah and Moses, who were talking to Jesus.
Peter said to Jesus, `Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let
us put up three shelters - one for you, one for Elijah ad

The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught.
Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a
chance to eat, he said to them, "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some
So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place. But many who saw them
leaving recognized them and ran on foot from all the towns and got there ahead of them.
When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were
like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.
By this time it was late in the day, so his disciples came to him. "This is a remote place,"
they said, "and it's already very late. Send the people away so that they can go to the
surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat."
But he answered, "You give them something to eat."
They said to him, "That would take more than half a year's wages! Are we to go and spend
that much on bread and give it to them to eat?"
"How many loaves do you have?" he asked. "Go and see."
When they found out, they said, "Five--and two fish."
Then Jesus directed them to have all the people sit down in groups on the green grass. So
they sat down in groups of hundreds and fifties. Taking the five loaves and the two fish
and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his
disciples to distribute to the people. He also divided the two fish among them all. They all
ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces of
bread and fish. The number of the men who had eaten was five thousand.…read more
