Yeshua’s Kin-dom of Heaven, Chapter 10
[Mk7:1-5] 1 Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes gathered together to him. 2 Now when they saw some of his students eating bread with defiled, that is unwashed, hands, they found fault. 3 (For the Pharisees and all the Jews, don’t eat unless they wash their hands and forearms, holding to the tradition of the elders. 4 They don’t eat when they come from the marketplace unless they bathe themselves, and there are many other things, which they have received to hold to: washings of cups, pitchers, bronze vessels, and couches.) 5 The Pharisees and the scribes asked him, “Why don’t your students walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat their bread with unwashed hands?”
[Lk11:39-41] 39 He answered them, “Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the platter, but your inward part is full of extortion and wickedness. 40 You foolish ones, didn’t he who made the outside make the inside also? 41 But give for gifts to the needy those things which are within, and behold, all things will be clean to you.
[Mk7:14-16] 14 He called all the multitude to himself, and said to them, “Hear me, all of you, and understand. 15 There is nothing from outside of a person, that going into them can defile them; but the things which proceed out of a person are those that defile them.
16 If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear!”
[Mk7:24-37] 24 From there he arose, and went away into the borders of Tzor and Tzidon. He entered into a house, and didn’t want anyone to know it, but he couldn’t escape notice. 25 For a woman, whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having heard of him, came and fell down at his feet. 26 Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by race. She begged him that he would cast the demon out of her daughter. 27 But Yeshua said to her, “Let the children be filled first, for it is not appropriate to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.”
28 But she answered him, “Yes, Sir. Yet even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”
29 He said to her, “For this saying, go your way. The demon has gone out of your daughter."
30 She went away to her house, and found the child having been laid on the bed, with the demon gone out.
31 Again he departed from the borders of Tzor and Tzidon, and came to Caesarea Filippi, through the middle of the region of Phoenicia. 32 They brought to him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech. They begged him to lay his hands on him. 33 He took him aside from the multitude, privately, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat, and touched his tongue.
34 Looking up to Heaven, he sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha!” that is, “Be opened!” 35 Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was released, and he spoke clearly. 36 He instructed them that they should tell no one, but the more he instructed them, so much the more widely they proclaimed it. 37 They were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes even the deaf hear, and the mute speak!”
[Mt12:23-28] 23 All the multitudes were amazed, and said, “Can this be the son of David?” 24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, “This man does not cast out demons, except by Baal Zebul (Beelzebul), the prince of the demons.”
25 Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? 27 If I by Baal Zebul cast out demons, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. 28 But if I by Shekhinah cast out demons, then Heaven’s Kin-dom has come upon you.
[Mk3:28-30] 28 Most certainly I tell you, all sins of the descendants of humanity will be forgiven, including their blasphemies with which they may speak; 29 but whoever may blaspheme against the Holy Spirit Shekhinah never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin.
30 He said this because they said, “He has an unclean spirit.”
