And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.
15 of 27
And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
16 of 27
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
17 of 27

Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.
21 of 27
And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
22 of 27
Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
23 of 27
And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
24 of 27
Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
25 of 27
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
26 of 27
Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
27 of 27
And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:
28 of 27
And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.
29 of 27
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?
30 of 27
He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?
31 of 27
Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.
32 of 27
Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

  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.

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
