     {Mar 3:1-6 & Mat 12:9-14 & Luk 6:6-11 Probably Galilee.}

     3:1 And he entered again into the synagogue, and a man having a dried up hand was there. 3:2And they were observing him, if he will heal him on the Sabbath day; in order that they may accuse him. 3:3 And he says to the man having the dried up hand, You in the middle, arise. 3:4Now he says to them, Is it legal on the Sabbath day to do good or to do evil? To save a life or to kill? But they were silent. 3:5 And having looked around at them with anger, being sorrowful at the hardening of their heart, he says to the man, Stretch out your hand. And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored as healthy as the other. 3:6 And the Pharisees went out and immediately were making* a counsel against him with the Herodians, how they might destroy him.

     3:7 And Jesus departed to the sea with his disciples, and a large multitude followed him from Galilee and from Judea, 3:8 and from Jerusalem and from Idumaea, and beyond-that of the Jordan, and those around Tyre and Sidon. This large multitude, having heard how-much he was doing, came to him. 3:9 And he spoke to his disciples, in order that a small-boat should wait-on him because of the crowd, in order that they might not press against him; 3:10 for* he healed many; so-that as many as had disorders fell upon him, in order that they might touch him. 3:11 And the unclean spirits, whenever they were viewing him, were falling down before him and cried, saying, You are the Son of God. 3:12 And he was rebuking them much, in order that they might not make* him apparent.

     3:22 And the scribes that came down from Jerusalem were saying, He has Beelzebub, and, He is casting out the demons by the ruler of the demons.

     3:23 And having called them, he was speaking to them in parables: How is the Adversary able to cast out the Adversary? 3:24And if a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom is not able to stand. 3:25And if a house is divided against itself, that house is not able to stand. 3:26And if the Adversary has stood up against himself, and has been divided, he is not able to stand, but hascome to an end. 3:27But no one having entered into the house of the strong man is able to plunder his goods, if he does not first bind the strong man, and then he may plunder his house. 3:28Assuredly I am saying to youĎ, All their sins and blasphemies will be forgiven to the sons of men; as many things as they may blaspheme. 3:29But whoever blasphemes at the Holy Spirit does not have forgiveness, forever, but is liable to an everlasting judgment.3:30 (Because they were saying, 'He has an unclean spirit.')
