Matthew 5:17-20 17 “Don’t think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete.18 Yes indeed! I tell you that until heaven and earth pass away, not so much as a yud or a stroke will pass from the Torah— not until everything that must happen has happened.19 So whoever disobeys the least of these mitzvot (commands) and teaches others to do so will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever obeys them and so teach
Matthew 5:13-16 13 “You are salt for the Land. But if salt becomes tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except being thrown out for people to trample on. 14 “You are light for the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Likewise, when people light a lamp, they don’t cover it with a bowl but put it on a lampstand, so that it shines for everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they
Matthew 5:1-11 5 Seeing the crowds, Yeshua walked up the hill. After he sat down, his talmidim (disciples) came to him, 2 and he began to speak. This is what he taught them: 3 “How blessed are the poor in spirit!
for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. 4 “How blessed are those who mourn!
for they will be comforted. 5 “How blessed are the meek!
for they will inherit the Land! (Psalm 37:11) 6 “How blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness!
for they will be fill
Matthew 4:23-25 23 Yeshua went all over the Galil (Galilee) teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Good News of the Kingdom, and healing people from every kind of disease and sickness.24 Word of him spread throughout all Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill, suffering from various diseases and pains, and those held in the power of demons, and epileptics and paralytics; and he healed them.25 Huge crowds followed him from the Galil, the Ten Towns (the Decapo
Matthew 4:18-22 18 As Yeshua walked by Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee), he saw two brothers who were fishermen — Shim‘on (Simon), known as Kefa (Peter), and his brother Andrew — throwing their net into the lake. 19 Yeshua said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers for men!” 20 At once they left their nets and went with him. 21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers — Ya’akov Ben-Zavdai (James, son of Zebedee) and Yochanan (John) his brother — in the boat
Matthew 4:12-17 12 When Yeshua heard that Yochanan had been put in prison, he returned to the Galil (Galilee); 13 but he left Natzeret (Nazareth) and came to live in K’far-Nachum (Capernaum), a lake shore town near the boundary between Z’vulun (Zebulun) and Naftali (Naphtali). 14 This happened in order to fulfill what Yesha‘yahu (Isaiah) the prophet had said, 15 “Land of Z’vulun and land of Naftali,
toward the lake, beyond the Yarden, Galil-of-the-Goyim —

Matthew 4:1-11 4 Then the Spirit led Yeshua up into the wilderness to be tempted by the Adversary. 2 After Yeshua had fasted forty days and nights, he was hungry. 3 The Tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, order these stones to become bread.” 4 But he answered, “The Tanakh says, ‘Man does not live on bread alone,
but on every word that comes from the mouth of Adonai’” (Deut. 8:3) 5 Then the Adversary took him to the holy city and set him on the highest po
Matthew 3:13-17 13 Then Yeshua came from the Galil to the Yarden to be immersed by Yochanan.14 But Yochanan tried to stop him. “You are coming to me? I ought to be immersed by you!”15 However, Yeshua answered him, “Let it be this way now, because we should do everything righteousness requires.” Then Yochanan let him.16 As soon as Yeshua had been immersed, he came up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, he saw the Spirit of God coming down upon him like a dove,1
Matthew 3:7-12 7 But when Yochanan saw many of the P’rushim and Tz’dukim (Pharisees and Saduccees) coming to be immersed by him, he said to them, “You snakes! Who warned you to escape the coming punishment?8 If you have really turned from your sins to God, produce fruit that will prove it!9 And don’t suppose you can comfort yourselves by saying, ‘Avraham is our father’! For I tell you that God can raise up for Avraham sons from these stones!10 Already the axe is at the root o
Matthew 3:1-6 It was during those days that Yochanan the Immerser arrived in the desert of Y’hudah and began proclaiming the message, 2 “Turn from your sins to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near!” 3 This is the man Yesha‘yahu was talking about when he said, “The voice of someone crying out:
