Matthew: 18

The Greatest in the Kingdom  Mt.18.1-5 (Capernaum)[ Mt.18.1-5 → ] - Mk.9.33-37, Lk.9.46-48

1At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" 2And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, 3and said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4Whoever humbles himself like this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Temptations to Sin  Mt.18.5-9 (Capernaum)[ Mt.18.5-9 → ] - Mk.9.42-48, Lk.17.1-2

5"Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me; 6but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin Greek: causes ... to stumble, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.

7"Woe to the world for temptations to sin! Greek: stumbling blocks For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the man by whom the temptation comes! 8And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin Greek: causes ... to stumble, cut it off and throw it away; it is better for you to enter life maimed or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. 9And if your eye causes you to sin Greek: causes ... to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell Greek: Gehenna of fire.

The Parable of the Lost Sheep  Mt.18.10-14 (Capernaum)[ Mt.18.10-14 → ] - Lk.15.3-7

10"See that you do not despise one of these little ones; for I tell you that in heaven their angels always behold the face of my Father who is in heaven. 11Other ancient authorities add verse 11 ... For the Son of man came to save the lost. 12What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray? 13And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray. 14So it is not the will of my Other ancient authorities read: your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.

A Brother who Sins  Mt.18.15-20[ Mt.18.15-20 → ] - Lk.17.3

15"If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. 16 [ Dt.19.15. ] But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses. 17If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. 18Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant  Mt.18.21-35 (Capernaum)

21Then Peter came up and said to him, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?" 22Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven Or: seventy-seven times.

23"Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants. 24When he began the reckoning, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents; This talent was more than fifteen years' wages to a labourer 25and as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and payment to be made. 26So the servant fell on his knees, imploring him, 'Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.' 27And out of pity for him the lord of that servant released him and forgave him the debt. 28But that same servant, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; The denarius was a day's wage for a labourer and seizing him by the throat he said, 'Pay what you owe.' 29So his fellow servant fell down and besought him, 'Have patience with me, and I will pay you.' 30He refused and went and put him in prison till he should pay the debt. 31When his fellow servants saw what had taken place, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place. 32Then his lord summoned him and said to him, 'You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you besought me; 33and should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?' 34And in anger his lord delivered him to the jailers Greek: torturers, till he should pay all his debt. 35So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart."
