Luke: 5

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

1One day as he stood by the Lake of Gennesaret, and the people crowded upon him to listen to the word of God, 2he noticed two boats lying at the water's edge; the fishermen had come ashore and were washing their nets. 3He got into one of the boats, which belonged to Simon, and asked him to put out a little way from the shore; then he went on teaching the crowds from his seat in the boat. 4When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into deep water and let down your nets for a catch.' 5Simon answered, 'Master, we were hard at work all night and caught nothing at all; but if you say so, I will let down the nets.' 6They did so and made a big haul of fish; and their nets began to split. 7So they signalled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. This they did, and loaded both boats to the point of sinking. 8When Simon saw what had happened he fell at Jesus's knees and said, 'Go, Lord, leave me, sinner that I am!' 9For he and all his companions were amazed at the catch they had made; 10so too were his partners James and John, Zebedee's sons. 'Do not be afraid,' said Jesus to Simon; 'from now on you will be catching men.' 11As soon as they had brought the boats to land, they left everything and followed him.

The Cleansing of a Leper  Lk.5.12-16 (Galilee)[ Lk.5.12-16 → ] - Mt.8.1-4, Mk.1.40-45

12He was once in a certain town where there happened to be a man covered with leprosy; seeing Jesus, he bowed to the ground and begged his help. 'Sir,' he said, 'if only you will, you can cleanse me.' 13Jesus stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, 'Indeed I will; be clean again.' The leprosy left him immediately. 14Jesus then ordered him not to tell anybody. 'But go,' he said, 'show yourself to the priest, and make the offering laid down by Moses for your cleansing; that will certify the cure.' 15But the talk about him spread all the more; great crowds gathered to hear him and to be cured of their ailments. 16And from time to time he would withdraw to lonely places for prayer.

The Healing of a Paralytic  Lk.5.17-26[ Lk.5.17-26 → ] - Mt.9.1-8, Mk.2.1-12

17One day he was teaching, and Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting round. People had come from every village of Galilee and from Judaea and Jerusalem, [Some witnesses read: and Pharisees and teachers of the law, who had come from every village of Galilee and from Judaea and Jerusalem, were sitting around.] and the power of the Lord was with him to heal the sick. 18Some men appeared carrying a paralysed man is on a bed. They tried to bring him in and set him down in front of Jesus, 19but finding no way to do so because of the crowd, they went up on to the roof and let him down through the tiling, bed and all, into the middle of the company in front of Jesus. 20When Jesus saw their faith, he said, 'Man, your sins are forgiven you.'

21The lawyers and the Pharisees began saying to themselves, 'Who is this fellow with his blasphemous talk? Who but God alone can forgive sins?' 22But Jesus knew what they were thinking and answered them: 'Why do you harbour thoughts like these? 23Is it easier to say, "Your sins are forgiven you", or to say, "Stand up and walk"? 24But to convince you that the Son of Man has the right on earth to forgive sins'-he turned to the paralysed man-'I say to you, stand up, take your bed, and go home.' 25And at once he rose to his feet before their eyes, took up the bed he had been lying on, and went home praising God. 26They were all lost in amazement and praised God; filled with awe they said, 'You would never believe the things we have seen today.'

The Calling of Levi  Lk.5.27-32 (Capernaum)[ Lk.5.27-32 → ] - Mt.9.9-13, Mk.2.13-17

27Later, when he went out, he saw a tax-gatherer, Levi by name, at his seat in the custom-house. 28He said to him, 'Follow me'; and he rose to his feet, left everything behind, and followed him.

29Afterwards Levi held a big reception in his house for Jesus; among the guests was a large party of tax-gatherers and others. 30The Pharisees and the lawyers of their sect complained to his disciples: 'Why do you eat and drink', they said, 'with tax-gatherers and sinners?' 31Jesus answered them: 'It is not the healthy that need a doctor, but the sick; 32I have not come to invite virtuous people, but to call sinners to repentance.'

The Question about Fasting  Lk.5.33-39[ Lk.5.33-39 → ] - Mt.9.14-17, Mk.2.18-22

33Then they said to him, 'John's disciples are much given to fasting and the practice of prayer, and so are the disciples of the Pharisees; but yours eat and drink.' 34Jesus replied, 'Can you make the bridegroom's friends fast while the bridegroom is with them? 35But a time will come: the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and that will be the time for them to fast.'

36He told them this parable also: 'No one tears a piece from a new cloak to patch an old one; if he does, he will have made a hole in the new cloak, and the patch from the new will not match the old. 37Nor does anyone put new wine into old wine-skins; if he does, the new wine will burst the skins, the wine will be wasted, and the skins ruined. 38Fresh skins for new wine! 39And no one after drinking old wine wants new; for he says, "The old wine is good."'
