Matthew 15
6 of 39
Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
7 of 39
Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
8 of 39
But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
9 of 39
For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
10 of 39
But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
11 of 39
And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
12 of 39
Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
13 of 39
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
14 of 39
But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
15 of 39
And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
16 of 39
Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
17 of 39
Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
18 of 39
But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
19 of 39
Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
20 of 39
Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.
21 of 39
And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
22 of 39
Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
23 of 39
But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
24 of 39
For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
25 of 39
These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
26 of 39
Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.
27 of 39
And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
28 of 39
But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
29 of 39
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
30 of 39
Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
31 of 39
But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.
32 of 39
And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.
33 of 39
Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
34 of 39
And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.
35 of 39
And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:
36 of 39
Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.
37 of 39
Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.
38 of 39
And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?
39 of 39
And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
40 of 39
And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.
41 of 39
And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
42 of 39
And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.
43 of 39
And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.
44 of 39
And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala.

  BIBLE CANON: 5
A biblical canon is a set of texts (or "books") which a particular religious community regards as authoritative scripture. Christians were the first to use the term in reference to scripture.

These bible canons have developed through debate and agreement by the religious authorities.

1. Marcion Canon | BIBLE CANON 140 AD
Marcionism was a religious movement based on the teachings of the 2nd-century Marcion of Sinope. Marcions Canon lists 14 books out of the 27 books in the New Testament. More specifically, these were Luke and Paul's 13 writings. Marcion even rejected the entire Old Testament of 39 books.

2. Muratorian Canon | BIBLE CANON 170 AD
The Muratorian Canon is an ancient list of New Testament books - the oldest such list we have found and lists 22 of the 27 books that were later included in the New Testament of the Christian Bible.

It is noteworthy that the Muratorian Canon omits several epistles that later did win acceptance in the Christian New Testament such as the books of James and 2 Peter.

IMPORTANT: All Scripture text has context and background. Scripture should never be read literally or in isolation. Always seek clarification from religious scholars and teachers. In general, Scripture adheres to four principles: (1) Literal Meaning - What the Scripture says (2) Historical Setting - The story events; how the Scripture was understood in its time (3) Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context (4) Synthesis - A comparison with similar Scripture to give a better contextual understanding
