Mark 8

1 The crowd was enormous in those days, and they do not have anything to eat. Jesus, having called to him his disciples, says to them, 2 I have compassion upon the crowd, because they already remain with me for three days and do not have anything that they might eat. 3 And if I dismiss them starving to their house, they will be fainting on the road; for* some of them have come from far away. 4 And his disciples answered him, From where will anyone be able to feed these men bread here in the wilderness?
5 And he asked them, How many loaves do you* have? Now they said, Seven. 6 And he commanded the crowd to lean-back upon the soil. And he took the seven loaves, and having given-thanks, he broke them and was giving them to his disciples, in order that they might place them beside them, and they placed them beside the crowd. 7 And they were holding a few small-fish, and having given-thanks, he said to his disciples to also place these beside them. 8 Now they ate and were fully-fed, and they took up an abundance of broken pieces� seven baskets. 9 Now those who ate were approximately four thousand, and he dismissed them.

{Mar 8:10-26 & Mat 15:39-16:12 Near Caesarea Philippi Summer 29 AD.} 10 And immediately he stepped into the ship with his disciples and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.
11 And the Pharisees came forth and began to debate together with him, seeking from him a sign from the heaven, testing him. 12 And having groaned deeply in his spirit, he says, Why is this generation seeking a sign? Assuredly I am saying to you*, As if a sign will be given to this generation. 13 And having left them, he again stepped onto a ship, and went away to the area beyond-that. 14 And they forgot to take bread, and they did not have any bread, except one loaf in the ship with them. 15 And he ordered them, saying, Behold* and beware* of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.
16 And they were reasoning with one another, saying, It is because we have no bread. 17 And Jesus having known it and says to them, Why are you* reasoning so, because you* have no bread? Do you* still not perceive, nor understand? Do you* still have your* heart hardened? 18 Having eyes, do you* not see? Having ears, do you* not hear? And do you* not remember? 19 When I broke the five loaves *for the five thousand, how-many baskets full of broken pieces did you* lift up?
They say to him, Twelve. 20 Now when the seven to the four thousand, how-many baskets full of broken pieces did you* lift up?
Now they said, Seven. 21 And he said to them, How do you* not yet understand?
22 And he comes to Bethsaida. And they bring to him a blind man and plead with him in order that he might touch him. 23 And grabbing the blind man by the hand, he led him outside the village, and having spit into his eyes and laid his hands upon him, he asked him if he sees anything. 24 And having looked up, he said, I see men, because I behold them like walking trees. 25 Thereafter he laid his hands upon his eyes again, and he made* him to look at him. And he was restored and looked at all men distinctly.
26 And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither enter into the village, nor say anything to anyone in the village. {Mar 8:27-30 & Mat 16:13-20 & Luk 9:18-21 Caesarea Philippi.} 27 And Jesus went forth and his disciples, into the villages of Caesarea Philippi, and on the road he asked his disciples, saying to them, Who do men say that I am?
28 Now they answered, John the Immerser* and others, Elijah, but others, One of the prophets. 29 And he asked them, But who do you* say that I am?
Now Peter answering, says to him, You are the Christ. 30 And he rebuked them in order that they should speak to no one concerning him. {Mar 8:31-9:1 & Mat 16:21-28 & Luk 9:22-27 Caesarea Philippi.} 31 And he began to teach them, that it is essential for the Son of Man to suffer many things and to be rejected* from the elders and the high-priests and the scribes, and be killed, and to rise* up after three days. 32 And he was speaking the word frankly. And Peter took him and began to rebuke him. 33 But he turned again, and saw his disciples, and rebuked Peter, saying, Go behind me, adversary, because you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.
34 And having called the crowd together with his disciples to him, he said to them, Whoever wishes to follow after me, let him deny himself, and lift up his cross and follow me. 35 For* whoever wishes to save his life will be losing it, and whoever loses his life because of me and because of the good-news, this one will be saving it. 36 For* what will it profit a man, if he gained the whole world and should forfeit his soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 For* whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this generation, the adulteress and sinner, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him, whenever he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy messengers.
