Matthew: 4

The Temptation of Jesus  Mt.4.1-11 (Wilderness of Judaea)[ Mt.4.1-11 → ] - Mk.1.12-13, Lk.4.1-13

1JESUS WAS THEN led away by the Spirit into the wilderness, to be tempted by the devil.

2For forty days and nights he fasted, and at the end of them he was famished. 3The tempter approached him and said, 'If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.' 4 [ Dt.8.3. ] Jesus answered, 'Scripture says, "Man cannot live on bread alone; he lives on every word that God utters." '

5The devil then took him to the Holy City and set him on the parapet of the temple. 6 [ Ps.91.11-12. ] 'If you are the Son of God,' he said, 'throw yourself down; for Scripture says, "He will put his angels in charge of you and they will support you in their arms, for fear you should strike your foot against a stone." ' 7 [ Dt.6.16. ] Jesus answered him, 'Scripture says again you are not to put the Lord your God to the test." '

8Once again, the devil took him to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in their glory. 9'All these', he said, 'I will give you, if you will only fall down and do me homage.' 10 [ Dt.6.13. ] But Jesus said, 'Begone, Satan! Scripture says, "You shall do homage to the Lord your God and worship him alone." '

11Then the devil left him, and angels appeared and waited on him.

The Beginning of the Galilean Ministry  Mt.4.12-17 (Machaerus-Capernaum)[ Mt.4.12-17 → ] - Mk.1.14-15, Lk.4.14-15

12When he heard that John had been arrested, Jesus withdrew to Galilee; 13and leaving Nazareth he went and settled at Capernaum on the Sea of Galilee, in the district of Zebulun and Naphtali. 14This was in fulfilment of the passage in the prophet Isaiah which tells of 15 [ Is.9.1-2, Is.42.7. ] 'the land of Zebulun, the land of Naphtali, the road by the sea, the land beyond Jordan, heathen Galilee', and says:

17From that day Jesus began to proclaim the message: 'Repent; for [Some witnesses omit: Repent; for] the kingdom of Heaven is upon you.'

The Calling of Four Fishermen  Mt.4.18-22 (Capernaum)[ Mt.4.18-22 → ] - Mk.1.16-20, Lk.5.1-11

18JESUS WAS WALKING by the Sea of Galilee when is he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the lake; for they were fishermen. 19Jesus said to them, 'Come with me, and I will make you fishers of men.' 20They left their nets at once and followed him.

21He went on, and saw another pair of brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they were in the boat with their father Zebedee, overhauling their nets. He called them, 22and at once they left the boat and their father, and followed him.

Ministering to a Great Multitude  Mt.4.23-25 (Galilee)[ Mt.4.23-25 → ] - Lk.6.17-19

23He went round the whole of Galilee, teaching in the synagogues, preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, and curing whatever illness or infirmity there was among the people. 24His fame reached the whole of Syria; and sufferers from every kind of illness, racked with pain, possessed by devils, epileptic, or paralysed, were all brought to him, and he cured them. 25Great crowds also followed him, from Galilee and the Ten Towns [Greek: Decapolis], from Jerusalem and Judaea, and from Transjordan.
