A Restatement of the Gospels

XVI. The Retreat from Galilee

61. At Tyre and Sidon

        21And Jesus went away from there (Capernaum) and withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon. 24And he entered a house and would not have anyone know it; yet he could not be hid.
        22And behold a Canaanite woman from that region came out and cried, “Have mercy on me; my daughter is severely possessed by a demon.”
        28Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.”
        And her daughter was healed instantly.

62. At Magadan

        39Jesus went to the region of Magadan.a 1And the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and to test him they asked him to show them a sign from heaven.
        2He answered them, “When it is evening, you say it will be fair weather, for the sky is red; 3in the morning it will be foul weather, for the sky is red and threatening. You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times. 4An evil generation seeks for a sign, but no sign shall be given.” So he left them and departed.
        6And Jesus said to his disciples, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”
        (Mt. 15:39; 16:1–4, 6)
