11 Because you say that I cast out demons, because I am their master, and if I, by The Lord Of Demons, cast out demons, by whom do YOUR sons cast them out? Therefore shall they be your judges.
12 But if, with the Finger Of God I cast out demons there is no doubt The Kingdom Of God is upon you.
13 When a strong man's arms keeps his palace his goods are in place, but when a stronger army overcomes him, they take from him all his armor, all his kin, and divide up the spoils.
14 He that is not with me is against me. He that gathers not with me, scatters from me.
15 When the unclean Spirit is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places seeking rest and finds none, and says 'I will return unto my house from where I came.' When he comes he finds it swept and hung with clean curtains then goes he in and takes in with him seven other Spirits more wicked than himself. They enter in and dwell there. Now the man that was clean is worse than he was before."
16 Jesus left them, knowing that some heard, but some did not.
17 It came to pass that a certain woman followed after him and lifted up her voice, crying, "Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the nipples which you sucked."
18 Jesus answered, "Better you bless them that hear the Word Of God and keep it."
19 When the people again gathered around Him, He spoke again, "This is an evil generation. They seek signs, yet there shall be no signs given it, but the signs of the prophet Jonas. For as Jonas was assigned unto the Ninevites, so shall all the sons of man be to this generation.
20 The queen of the south shall rise up in The Judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them. For she came from the farthest parts of the Earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon. Behold! He who is greater than Solomon is here.
21 The men of Nineva shall rise up in the Judgment with this generation and shall condemn it. For they repented at the preaching of Jonas And behold a greater one than Jonas is here
22 No man hides The Light and puts it in a secret place but puts it out where all men might see.
23 The Light of the body is the eye, therefore, when your eye is filled the whole body is filled with Light. But when your eye is evil your whole body is filled with Darkness.
24 Take heed, therefore, that you do not close your eyes, shut out The Light, and find yourself left in Darkness. Without The Light you cannot survive The Darkness.
25 If you take no Light with you into The Eternal Night, The Eternal Night will swallow you up as the flames swallow up the flesh."
26 When He had said these things He went His way.
27 Now, a certain Pharisee asked Christ to dine with him. He went in and sat down to eat. When the Pharisee saw, he marveled that Christ had not washed His hands. Jesus knew his thoughts.
28 "Oh, you poor Pharisees," He remarked, "You make clean the outside of the cup and the platter, but that which is within you you fill with decay and wickedness.
29 Fools! Does not He that makes that which is outside make that which is inside, also? Much better you give notice to the good things you have, and behold, all things are clean unto you.
30 But woe unto you, Pharisees, for you tenth mind, rue, and all manner of herbs, but pass over judgment and the love of God.
31 These you ought to have done and not leave the other. Woe unto you Pharisees. For you love the uppermost seat in the temple and greeting in the market. Woe unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites. For you are as graves which appear not, so that men could walk over them not knowing they are there."
32 Then asked one of the lawyers, "Rabbi, would you reproach us so bitterly, also?"
33 Jesus answered, "Woe unto you, also, you Lawyers, for you load men down with burdens grievous to carry. But you, yourselves, touch NOT the burdens with one of your fingers.
34 Woe unto you, for you build sepulchers of the prophets and your Fathers killed them. Truly you bear witness that you allow the deeds of Your Fathers. For they indeed killed them, and you build their sepulchers.
35 Therefore, also says The Wisdom Of God will send them prophets and apostles and some of them they shall slay and persecute, that the blood of all the prophets which is shed from the foundations of the world may be required of this generation.
36 From the first to the last which perished between the alter and the temple, truly I say to you, it shall be required of this generation.
37 Woe to you, Lawyers for you have taken away The Key Of Knowledge. You enter not in yourselves, and them that were entering in you hindered."
38 When He was done saying these things, the Scribes, the Pharisees and Lawyers did not like His words and tried to provoke Him in many ways, laying in wait for Him, seeking to catch something out of His mouth that they might accuse Him with.
39 Now, when it ccame to pass that there was an innumerable amount of people gathered there, he again stood in a high place and sent His apostles and even some of His disciples out among the crowd, that they might again repeat His words so all might hear.
40 "Beware you the leaven of the Pharisees which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed, nothing hidden that it shall not be made known.
