The Beheading of John
(Mark 6:14-29; Luke 9:7-9)

1At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the news of Jesus, 2and he said to his servants, “This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead, and because of this, the miraculous powers are working in him.”

3For Herod, having seized John, bound him and put him in prison, on account of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip. 4For John had been saying to him, “It is not lawful for you to have her.” 5Although wishing to kill him, he feared the multitude, because they were holding him as a prophet.

6But on the birthday of Herod having been celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced in the midst, and pleased Herod, 7whereupon he promised with an oath to give to her whatever she should ask.

8And having been urged on by her mother she says, “Give me here upon a platter the head of John the Baptist.”

9And the king having been grieved, on account of the oaths and those reclining with him, he commanded it to be given. 10And having sent, he beheaded John in the prison.

11And his head was brought on a platter and was given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother. 12And his disciples having come, took the body and buried it, and having come, they told Jesus.

The Feeding of the Five Thousand
(Mark 6:30-44; Luke 9:10-17; John 6:1-15)

13And Jesus having heard, withdrew from there by boat to a secluded place by Himself. And the crowds having heard of it, followed Him on foot from the towns. 14And having gone out, He saw a great crowd and was moved with compassion toward them, and He healed their sick.

15And evening having come, the disciples came to Him saying, “This place is desolate, and the time already is gone by. Therefore dismiss the crowds, that having gone into the villages, they might buy food for themselves.”

16And Jesus said to them, “They have no need to go away. You give to them something to eat.”

17And they say to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.”

18And He said, “Bring them here to Me.” 19And having commanded the crowds to sit down on the grass, having taken the five loaves and the two fish, having looked up to heaven, He spoke a blessing. And having broken, He gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples to the crowds.

20And all ate and were satisfied, and they took up that being over and above of the fragments, twelve hand-baskets full. 21And those eating were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

Jesus Walks on Water
(Mark 6:45-52; John 6:16-25)

22And immediately He compelled the disciples to enter into the boat and to go before Him to the other side, until He would have dismissed the crowds. 23And having dismissed the crowds, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. And evening having arrived, He was there alone, 24and the boat being now many stadiaa from the land, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary.

25And in the fourth watch of the night, He went to them, walking on the sea. 26And the disciples having seen Him walking on the sea, were troubled saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear.

27But immediately Jesus spoke to them saying, “Take courage! It is I. Fear not.”

28And Peter answering said to Him, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You upon the waters.”

29And He said, “Come.”

And Peter having descended from the boat, walked upon the water and came to Jesus. 30And seeing the charging wind, he was afraid, and having begun to sink, he cried out saying, “Lord, save me!”

31And immediately Jesus having stretched out the hand, took hold of him and says to him, “O Little faith, why did you waver?”

32And they having entered into the boat, the wind ceased. 33And those in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are Son of God.”

Jesus Heals at Gennesaret
(Mark 6:53-56)

34And having crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret. 35And the men of that place having recognized Him, sent to all that surrounding region, and brought to Him all those being sick, 36and were begging Him that only they might touch the fringe of His garment, and as many as touched were cured.
