Remember, O LORD, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesss, for they are from
of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; according to
Your mercy remember me, for Your goodness' sake, O LORD. Psalm 25:6-7 (NKJ)
And they came to Jericho. And as He (Jesus) was going out from Jericho with His
disciples and a great multitude, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus,
was sitting by the road.
And when he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus,
Son of David, have mercy on me!" And many were sternly telling him to be quiet,
but he kept crying out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
And Jesus stopped and said, "Call him." And they called the blind man, saying to
him, "Take courage, arise! He is calling for you." And casting aside his cloak,
he jumped up, and came to Jesus.
And answering him, Jesus said, "What do you want Me to do for you?" And the blind
man said to Him, "Rabboni, I want to regain my sight!" And Jesus said to him, "Go
your way; your faith has made you well." And immediately he regained his sight and
began following Him on the road. Mark 10:46-52 (NAS)
After these things Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee (or Tiberias).
And a great multitude was following Him, because they were seeing the signs which
He was performing on those who were sick. And Jesus went up on the mountain, and
there He sat with His disciples. Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at
Jesus therefore lifting up His eyes, and seeing that a great multitude was coming
to Him, said to Philip, "Where are we to buy bread, that these may eat?" And this
He was saying to test him; for He Himself knew what He was intending to do. Philip
answered Him, "Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, for
everyone to receive a little."
One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to Him, "There is a lad
here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are these for so many people?"
Jesus said, "Have the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place. So
the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
Jesus therefore took the loaves; and having given thanks, He distributed to those
who were seated; likewise also of the fish as much as they wanted. And when they
were filled, He said to His disciples, "Gather up the leftover fragments that nothing
may be lost." And so they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with fragments
from the five barley loaves, which were left over by those who had eaten. When therefore
the people saw the sign which He had performed, they said, "This is of a truth the
Prophet who is to come into the world." John 6:1-14 (NAS)
