Bible Town (2017) Script

What a beautiful day, the perfect day to meet my best friends, Sarah and Tammy.

We're heading down to Bible Town, the most amazing place on earth where children can learn beautiful stories from the Bible.

I just can't wait!

Let's see now, which way is Sarah's house?

Oh yeah, that way.

Let's go.

Hey Jimmy.

Hey Sarah.

Are you ready for our next adventure in Bible Town?

I'm super ready.

I'm always ready to go to Bible Town.

I just can't wait!

Are we picking up Tammy next?

You bet, she's waiting for us.

Let's go.

What a great day, Jimmy, just a perfect day to visit Bible Town.

Yeah, I know, right?

I was so excited to head to Bible Town today, I couldn't fall asleep last night.

My mom warmed me up a glass of milk and read me a Bible story.

Then I could sleep.

That's cool, Sarah.

My mom reads me stories from the Bible all the time.

Which story did she read you?

My very favorite one.

It's about the creation of the world.

Oh, how cool!

That's where God creates Adam and Eve, isn't it?

Yeah.

It's a super cool story.

It's how God created the world we live in.

I think everybody should know it, don't you?

Totally.

Would you like me to tell it to you on our way to Tammy's house?

Yeah, I'd love to hear it.

Okay then, here we go.

In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth, and the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters, and God said, let there be light, and there was light.

And God saw the light, that it was good, and God divided the light from the darkness.

And God called the light day and the darkness he called night.

And the evening and the morning were the first day, and God said, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters, and God made the firmament and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament and it was so.

And God called the firmament Heaven.

And the evening and the morning were the second day.

And God said, let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear, and it was so.

And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters called he seas, and God saw that it was good.

And God said, let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself upon the earth, and it was so.

And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself after his kind, and God saw that it was good.

And the evening and the morning were the third day.

And God said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.

And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and it was so.

And God made two great lights, the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night.

He made the stars also.

And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night and to divide the light from the darkness.

And God saw that it was good.

And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

And God said, let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

And God created great whales and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind.

And God saw that it was good.

And God blessed them, saying be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

And God said, let the earth bring forth the living creatures after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind, and it was so.

And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind.

And God saw that it was good.

And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him, male and female created he them.

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

And God said, behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of the tree yielding seed.

To you it shall be for meat.

And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat, and it was so.

And God saw every thing that he had made, and behold, it was very good.

And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it, because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

The end.

Wow, Sarah, that was so cool!

Thank you, Jimmy.

I know a Bible story too.

Awesome, which one?

It's the story of the great flood.

I learned it last time I visited Bible Town.

It's an amazing story, Sarah.

Do you wanna hear it?

Totally!

It goes like this.

And it came to pass when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, that God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made them.

But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Noah was just man and walked with God.

And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

And God said unto Noah, the end of all flesh is come before me for the earth is filled with violence through them, and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

Make thee an ark of gopher wood, rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of it.

The length of the ark shall be 300 cubits, the breadth of it 50 cubits, and the height of it 30 cubits.

A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above, and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof, with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven, and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

But with thee will I establish my covenant, and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.

And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee.

They shall be male and female.

Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.

Thus did Noah, according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

And the Lord said unto Noah, come thou and all thy house into the ark, for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female, and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.

Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female, to keep the seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth 40 days and 40 nights, and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him.

And Noah was 600 years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.

And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.

Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth, there went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.

And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.

In the 600th year of Noah's life, in the second month, the 17th day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

And the rain was upon the earth 40 days and 40 nights.

In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons with them into the ark.

They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.

And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life.

And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him, and the Lord shut him in.

And the flood was 40 days upon the earth, and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.

And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth, and the ark went upon the face of the waters.

And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth, and all the high hills that were under the whole heaven were covered.

15 cubits upward did the waters prevail, and the mountains were covered.

And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man.

All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

And every living substance was destroyed, which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven, and they were destroyed from the earth, and Noah only remained alive and they that were with him in the ark.

And the waters prevailed upon the earth 150 days.

Whoa, Jimmy, that was incredible!

You told the story so well, too.

Thanks, Sarah.

What a supertastic day!

I'm having so much fun.

Oh look, there's Tammy's house.

That's Tammy over there.

Let's go.

Jimmy, Sarah.

Hey Tammy.

You said you had a surprise for me, guys?

I can't wait to find out what it is.

Jump on board my very special hot air balloon, and we'll tell ya all about it.

All right.

Wow guys, this is so cool.

I love the view from here.

Isn't it awesome?

Yeah.

So, are you gonna tell me what we're up to today?

I can't wait to hear all about it.

We're going to Bible Town!

Whoa, Bible Town?

What is that?

Bible Town is the most awesome place on earth.

Everybody in Bible Town knows all these stories from the Bible.

And because everybody there is so super nice, they will gladly tell you a story from the Bible.

No way!

Tots, all you have to do is ask.

Whoa, that's so awesome, guys.

But, do they really know all the stories from the Bible?

There is a lotta them, you know.

Yeah, they know all of them.

That's why it's so cool.

Even the story about the birth of Jesus?

Oh yes, everybody just loves that Bible story.

That's my favorite one too.

I know that story by heart.

My dad always reads it to me.

Can I tell it to you guys?

I'd love to hear it.

What about you, Sarah?

Oh, tots.

Cool.

This is how it goes.

And it came to pass in those days that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be taxed with Mary his espoused wife who was great with child.

And so it was that while they were there the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you.

Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass which the Lord hath made known unto us.

And they came with haste and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus.

Wow, Tammy, that was so beautiful.

What a great story! Thanks, Sarah.

What about the story about the three wise men from the East that brought gifts to baby Jesus?

That's a beautiful story too.

I know that one.

Tell us, Sarah.

It goes like this.

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, where is he that is born King of the Jews?

For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

And they said unto him, in Bethlehem of Judaea, for thus it is written by the prophet, and thou Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, art not the least among the princes of Judah, for out of thee shall come a Governor that shall rule my people Israel.

Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, go and search diligently for the young child, and when ye have found him, bring me word again that I may come and worship him also.

When they had heard the king, they departed.

And, lo, the star which they saw in the east went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down and worshiped him.

And when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts, gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, arise, and take the young child and his mother and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word, for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt.

And was there until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, out of Egypt have I called my son.

Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.

Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, in Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, saying, arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel, for they are dead which sought the young child's life.

And he arose and took the young child and his mother and came into the land of Israel.

But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither.

Notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee.

And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, he shall be called a Nazarene.

Sarah, that was such a great story, and you told it so well.

Thanks, Jimmy.

Me too, me too!

I wanna tell you guys another Bible story.

Can I?

Yeah, Jimmy, go for it.

Super cool.

Okay guys, this is the story of Jesus in the temple.

Love it.

This is how it goes.

And the child grew and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.

Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.

And when he was 12 years old they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.

And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem, and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.

But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey, and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.

And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.

And it came to pass that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them and asking them questions.

And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.

And when they saw him, they were amazed, and his mother said unto him, son, why hast thou thus dealt with us?

Behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.

And he said unto them, how is it that ye sought me?

Wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?

And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.

And he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them, but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

Wow, amazing!

I love that story.

I wish I had a friend just like Jesus.

You do!

Yeah, Jesus is with you already.

All you have to do is love him with all your heart.

You're right, guys.

I do love him so much.

Me too!

Me too.

Hey guys, check it out, down there.

Is that... Bible Town!

Cool, we're here. And now what, guys?

Now we go and hear some of the most amazing stories from the Bible.

Let's go see Pam.

She always tells amazing Bible stories.

She's the best.

All right, let's go see Pam.

Bible Town, here we come!

Woo hoo!

Hey Pam.

Hey guys, so nice to see you.

Thanks, it's nice to see you too.

This is Tammy, and she's visiting for the first time.

Welcome to Bible Town, Tammy.

I hope you have an awesome visit.

Oh, I'm sure I will.

This place sounds amazing.

You know, I was hoping you'd come by today.

I've been practicing telling a really great Bible story.

Ooh, that's cool.

I think you're the best story teller in all of Bible Town.

I'd love to hear it.

Oh wow, thanks, Sarah.

Which story will you tell us, Pam?

This is the story of Jesus being baptized by John.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

The same came for a witness to bear witness of the light, that all men through him might believe.

He was not that light, but was sent to bear witness of that light.

That was the true light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

He was in the world and the world was made by him and the world knew him not.

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name, which were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

And the word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

In the 15th year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.

And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, the voice of one crying in the wilderness, prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth.

And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair and a leathern girdle about his loins, and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea and all the region round about Jordan, and were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.

Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, oh generations of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, we have Abraham to our father.

For I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees.

Every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

And the people asked him, saying, what shall we do then?

He answereth and saith unto them, we that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none, and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.

Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, master, what shall we do?

And he said unto them, exact no more than that which is appointed you.

And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, and what shall we do?

And he said unto them, do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely, and be content with your wages.

And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John whether he were the Christ or not, John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose.

He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire, whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor and will gather the wheat into his garner, but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.

And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the people.

Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John to be baptized of him.

But John forbade him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

And Jesus answering said unto him, suffer it to be so now, for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness.

Then he suffered him.

And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water, and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, lighting upon him.

And lo a voice from heaven, saying, this is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

And Jesus himself began to be about 30 years of age.

Whoa, Pam, that's incredible!

Tell us another story.

Yeah, we wanna hear more about Jesus.

What about the story of Jesus's first miracle?

Would you like to hear that?

Yeah!

Oh, I'd love to. Me too.

I told you guys, Pam is an amazing story teller.

This is how it goes.

And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee and the mother of Jesus was there.

And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.

And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, they have no wine.

Jesus saith unto her, woman, what have I to do with thee?

Mine hour is not yet come.

His mother saith unto the servants, whatever he saith unto you, do it.

And there were set there six water pots of stone after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.

Jesus saith unto them, fill the water pots with water.

And they filled them up to the brim.

And he saith unto them, draw out now and bear unto the governor of the feast, and they will bare it.

When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, he knew not whence it was, but the servants which drew the water knew.

The governor of the feast called the bridegroom, and saith unto him, every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine, and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse.

But thou hast kept the good wine until now.

This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory and his disciples believed on him.

After this he went down to Capernaum, he and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples, and they continued there not many days.

And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem and found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting.

And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen, and poured out the changers' money and overthrew the tables.

He said unto them that sold doves, take these things hence.

Make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

And his disciples remembered that it was written, the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

Then answered the Jews and said unto them, what sign showest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?

Jesus answered and said unto them, destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

Then said the Jews, 40 and 60 years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

But he spake of the temple of his body.

When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them, and they believed the scripture and the word which Jesus had said.

Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover in the feast day, many believed in his name when they saw the miracles which he did.

But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men and needed not what they should testify of man for he knew what was in man.

Whoa, awesome!

I love that story so much.

Will you tell us another one?

Yeah Pam, please?

Sure, I'll tell you the story of the woman at the well.

Great.

How does it go?

When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples, he left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.

And he must need go through Samaria.

Then cometh he to a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

Now Jacob's well was there.

Jesus therefore being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well, and it was about the sixth hour.

There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water.

Jesus saith unto her, give me a drink.

For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.

Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, how is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria?

For the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

Jesus answered and said unto her, if thou knewest the gift of God and who it is that saith to thee, give me to drink, thou wouldest have asked of him and he would have given thee living water.

The woman saith unto him, sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep.

From whence then hast thou that living water?

Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself and his children, and his cattle?

Jesus answered and said unto her, whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again.

But whoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into the everlasting life.

The woman saith unto him, sir, give me this water that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

Jesus saith unto her, go, call thy husband, and come hither.

The woman answered and said, I have no husband.

Jesus said unto her, thou hast well said, I have no husband, for thou hast had five husbands, and whom thou now hast is not thy husband.

In that saidst thou truly.

The woman saith unto him, sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.

Our fathers worshiped in this mountain, and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

Jesus saith unto her, woman, believe me, the hour cometh when ye shall neither in this mountain nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.

Ye worship ye know not what.

We know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

God is a Spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ, and when he is come he will tell us all things.

Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

And upon this came his disciples, and marveled that he talked with the woman.

Yet no man said, what seekest thou?

Or, why talkest thou with her?

The woman then left her water pot and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did.

Is not this the Christ?

Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.

In the meanwhile his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.

But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.

Therefore said the disciples one to another, hath any man brought him ought to eat?

Jesus saith unto them, my meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

Say not ye, there are yet four months and then cometh harvest?

Behold, I say unto you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields for they are white already to harvest.

And he that reapeth receiveth wages and gathereth fruit unto life eternal, that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

And herein is that saying true, one soweth and another reapeth.

I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labor, other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, he told me all that ever I did.

So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them, and he abode there two days.

And many more believed of his own word and said unto the woman, now we believe, not because of thy saying, for which we have heard him ourselves and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.

Tell us another story, Pam!

Yeah!

Please?

Okay, oh.

And Jesus came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up to read.

And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias.

And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, the Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor.

He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

And he closed the book and gave it again to the minister, and sat down.

And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

And he began to say unto them, this day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth.

And they said, is not this Joseph's son?

And he said unto them, ye will surely say unto me this proverb, physician, heal thyself, whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country.

And he said, verily I say unto you, no prophet is accepted in his own country.

But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land.

But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.

And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet, and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.

And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up, and thrust him out of the city and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong.

But he passing through the midst of them went his way.

This is totally cool, you guys.

I know!

I'm so happy you're having fun, Tammy.

I have a Bible story for you guys.

Guess which one it is?

Give us a clue, Jimmy.

Yeah, give us a clue.

It's about a miracle.

Oh, I got it.

Jesus heals on the Sabbath.

Try again, guys!

Is it the miracle of the draught of the fishes?

Yeah, that's it!

Tell us the story, Jimmy.

This is how it goes.

And it came to pass that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret and saw two ships standing by the lake.

But the fishermen were gone out of them and were washing their nets.

And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land.

And he sat down, and he taught the people out of the ship.

Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.

And Simon answering said unto him, master, we have toiled all the night and have taken nothing, Nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

And when they had this done, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes, and their net brake.

And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them.

And they came and filled both the ships so that they began to sink.

When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, depart from me, for I am a sinful man, oh Lord.

For he was astonished, and all that were with him at the draught of the fishes which they had taken.

And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon.

And Jesus said unto Simon, fear not, from henceforth thou shalt catch men.

And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.

Wait, I know another awesome Bible story about Jesus performing miracles.

Tell us, Tammy.

This is how it begins.

And they went into Capernaum, and straightway on the sabbath day Jesus entered into the synagogue and taught.

And they were astonished at his doctrine, for he taught them as one that had authority and not as the scribes.

And there was in their synagogue a man with unclean spirit, and he cried out, saying, let us alone, what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth?

Art thou come to destroy us?

I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.

And Jesus rebuked him, saying, hold thy peace, and come out of him.

And when the unclean spirit had torn him and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.

And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, what thing is this?

What new doctrine is this?

For with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.

And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John.

But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.

And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased and them that were possessed with devils.

And all the city was gathered together at the door.

And he healed many that were sick of diseases, and cast out many devils, and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place and there prayed.

And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.

And when they had found him, they said unto him, all men seek for thee.

And he said unto them, let us go into the next towns that I may preach there also, for therefore came I forth.

And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.

And there came a leper to him, beseeching him and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand and touched him, and saith unto him, I will, be thou clean.

And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him and he was cleansed.

And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away and saith unto him, see thou say nothing to any man, but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places, and they came to him from every quarter.

And again he entered into Capernaum after some days, and it was noised that he was in the house, and straightway many were gathered together insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door, and he preached the word unto them.

And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.

And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was.

And when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.

When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, why doth this man thus speak blasphemies?

Who can forgive sins but God only?

And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, why reason ye these things in your hearts?

Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, thy sins be forgiven thee, or to say, arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?

But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, he saith to the sick of the palsy.

I say unto thee, arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.

And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all, insomuch that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, we never saw it on this fashion.

And he went forth again by the sea side, and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught them.

And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, follow me.

And he arose and followed him.

And it came to pass, that as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many, and they followed him.

And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with the publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, how is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, they that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick.

I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Wow! Amazing story, Tammy.

Hey guys, look over there.

What is it, Jimmy?

It's Sam.

Who is Sam?

Sam is a super cool friend of ours who lives in Bible Town.

He tells really awesome stories.

Are we gonna visit him, guys?

Yeah, let's go see Sam.

He's gonna have a great story for us, I'm sure.

Hey guys, so cool to see you.

Hey Sam, what's happenin'?

Did you come to hear some amazing Bible stories?

Yeah.

Are you gonna tell us a story, Sam?

Yeah, which story would you like to hear, guys?

What about another miracle story?

Sure guys.

Have you heard of this one?

When he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, Jesus entered into Capernaum.

And a certain centurion's servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die.

And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.

And when they came to Jesus they besought him instantly, saying that he was worthy for whom he should do this.

For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.

Then Jesus went with them.

And when he was now not far, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself, for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof.

Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee, but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.

For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, go, and he goeth, and to another, come, and he cometh, and to my servant, do this, and he doeth it.

When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

And they that were sent returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.

And it came to pass the day after that he went into a city called Nain and many of his disciples went with him, and much people.

Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow, and much people of the city was with her.

And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said unto her, weep not.

And he came and touched the bier, and they that bare him stood still.

And he said, young man, I say unto thee, arise.

And he that was dead sat up and began to speak.

And he delivered him to his mother.

And there came a fear on all, and they glorified God, saying, a great prophet is risen up among us.

God hath visited his people.

And this rumor of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.

Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, and said unto him, art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?

Jesus answered and said unto them, go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see.

The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, what went ye out into the wilderness to see?

A reed shaken with the wind?

But what went ye out for to see?

A man clothed in soft raiment?

Behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.

But what went ye out for to see?

A prophet?

Yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.

For this is he, of whom it is written, behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Verily I say unto you, among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist, notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

But whereunto shall I liken this generation?

It is like unto children sitting in the markets and calling unto their fellows, and saying, we have piped unto you, and ye have not danced.

We have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, he hath a devil.

The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners.

But wisdom is justified of her children.

Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not.

Woe unto thee, Chorazin.

Woe unto thee, Bethsaida.

For if the mighty works which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.

And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell, for if the mighty works which have been done in thee had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.

But I say unto you that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.

At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, oh Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in thy sight.

All things are delivered unto me of my Father.

No man knoweth the Son but the Father, neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Awesome.

What about the miracle of loaves and fishes?

That's an amazing story.

Can you tell us that one?

Wait, I know that story.

Let me tell it to you.

All right, Sarah, go ahead.

It goes like this.

When Jesus heard of the death of John the Baptist, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart, and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.

And Jesus went forth and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, this is a desert place, and the time is now past.

Send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.

But Jesus said unto them, they need not depart.

Give ye them to eat.

And they say unto him, we have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

He said, bring them hither to me.

And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

And they did all eat, and were filled, and they took up of the fragments that remained 12 baskets full.

And they that had eaten were about 5,000 men, besides women and children.

I know what happens next.

Jesus walks on water!

Wait, Jimmy.

Let Tammy tell the story from the beginning.

How does it go, Tammy?

It starts like this.

And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away because he perceived that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, and when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray.

And when the evening was come, he was there alone.

But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves, for the wind was contrary.

And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, it is a spirit, and they cried out for fear.

But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, be of good cheer, it is I, be not afraid.

And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

And he said, come.

And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand and caught him, and said unto him, oh thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

Then they that were in the ship came and worshiped him, saying, of a truth thou art the Son of God.

And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.

And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about and brought unto him all that were diseased, and besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment, and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

I know what happens next.

Tell us, Sarah.

The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone, When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.

And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?

Jesus answered them and said, verily, verily, I say unto you, ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

Labor not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you, for him hath God the Father sealed.

Then said they unto him, what shall we do that we might work the works of God?

Jesus answered and said unto them, this is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

They said therefore unto him, what sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee?

What dost thou work?

Our fathers did eat manna in the desert, as it is written, he gave them bread from heaven to eat.

Then Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven, but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life, he that cometh to me shall never hunger, and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

But I said unto you that ye also have seen me, and believe not.

All that the Father giveth me shall come to me, and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son and believeth on him, may have everlasting life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

The Jews then murmured at him, because he said I am the bread which came down from heaven.

And they said, is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know?

How is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, murmur not among yourselves.

No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him, and I will raise him up at the last day.

It is written in the prophets, and they shall be all taught of God.

Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

I am that bread of life.

Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

I am the living bread which came down from heaven.

If any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever, and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, how can this man give us his flesh to eat?

Then Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, I say unto you, except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood dwelleth in me, and I in him.

As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father, so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

This is that bread which came down from heaven, not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead.

He that eateth of this bread shall live forever.

These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, this is a hard saying, who can hear it?

When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, doth this offend you?

What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?

It is the spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing.

The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

But there are some of you that believe not.

For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

And he said, therefore said I unto you that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

Then said Jesus unto the 12, will ye also go away?

Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go?

Thou hast the words of eternal life.

And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

Jesus answered them, have not I chosen you 12, and one of you is a devil?

He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon, for he it was that should betray him, being one of the 12.

Wow, guys, that was so cool.

I never learned so much about the Bible before.

I know, right?

Don't you love this place?

Yeah, it's awesome.

I just...

What is it, Tammy?

Well, I just wish we had more time to listen to Sam tell more stories.

Well I can tell you another Bible story if you like, Tammy.

Oh wow. Yeah!

I'm gonna tell you the story of the transfiguration.

Oh ho ho, awesome!

Let me see, oh yeah.

This is how it goes.

And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart from themselves.

And was transfigured before them, and his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow so as no fuller on earth can white them.

And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus.

And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here, and let us make three tabernacles.

One for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

For he wist not what to say, for they were sore afraid.

And there was a cloud that overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, this is my beloved Son, hear him.

And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.

And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.

And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.

And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.

And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.

And he asked the scribes, what question ye with them?

And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit.

And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him, and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away, and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out, and they could not.

He answered him and saith, oh faithless generation, how long shall I be with you?

How long shall I suffer you?

Bring him unto me.

And they brought him unto him, and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him, and he fell on the ground and wallowed foaming.

And he asked his father, how long is it ago since this came unto him?

And he said, of a child.

And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him, but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.

Jesus said unto him, if thou canst believe all things are possible to him that believeth.

And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe, help thou mine unbelief.

When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.

And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him, and he was as one dead insomuch that many said, he is dead.

But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.

And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, why could not we cast him out?

And he said unto them, this kind can come forth by nothing but by prayer and fasting.

And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee and he would not that any man should know it.

For he taught his disciples and said unto them, the Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him.

And after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.

But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.

And what happens after that, Sarah?

Well... Oh I know, I know!

Really? Yeah.

I know the next story.

How do you know?

I learned it in Bible Town last time I visited.

It's about Christ teaching humility and forgiveness.

At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

And Jesus called a little child unto him and set him in the midst of them, and said, verily I say unto you, except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones, for I say unto you that in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

How think ye?

If a man have an hundred sheep and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?

And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.

Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone.

If he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church, but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Again I say unto you that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him?

Till seven times?

Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee till seven times, but until 70 times seven.

Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.

And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him which owed him 10,000 talents.

But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.

The servant therefore fell down and worshiped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

But the same servant went out and found one of his fellow servants which owed him an hundred pence and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, pay me that thou owest.

And his fellow servant fell down at his feet and besought him, saying, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

And he would not, but went and cast him into prison till he should pay the debt.

So when his fellow servants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.

Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, oh thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt because thou desiredst me.

Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellow servant, even as I had pity on thee?

And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors till he should pay all that was due unto him.

So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

And he turned him unto his disciples and said privately, blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see, for I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see and have not seen them, and to hear those things which ye hear and have not heard them.

Incredible. Great job, Jimmy!

Thanks.
