THE STORY OF THE PALM BRANCHES



Palm Branches
From Jericho, Jesus and his disciples went up the mountains, and came to Bethany, where
his friends Martha and Mary lived, and where he had raised Lazarus to life. Many people
in Jerusalem heard that Jesus was there, and they went out of the city to see him, for
Bethany was only two miles from Jerusalem.

THE GOOD SHEPHERD AND THE GOOD SAMARITAN



Good Samaritan
Soon afterward Jesus gave to the people in Jerusalem the parable or story of “The Good
Shepherd.”
“Verily, verily (that is, ‘in truth, in truth’), I say to you, if any one does not go into the
sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, it is a sign that he is a thief and a
robber. But the one who comes in by the door is a shepherd of the sheep.

THE STORY OF THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT



Sermon On The Mount
Among the Jews there was one class of men hated and despised by the people more than
any other. That was “the publicans.” These were the men who took from the people the
tax which the Roman rulers had laid upon the land. Many of these publicans were selfish,
grasping, and cruel.

THE STORY OF THE FISHERMEN



The Fisherman
When Jesus began to teach the people by the river Jordan, a few young men came to him
as followers, or disciples. Some of these men were Andrew and John, Peter and Philip and
Nathanael. While Jesus was teaching near Jerusalem and in Samaria, these men stayed
with Jesus; but when he came to Galilee, they went to their homes and work, for most of
them were fishermen from the Sea of Galilee.

THE STORY OF THE STRANGER AT THE WELL



Stranger At The Well
While Jesus was teaching in Jerusalem and in the country places near it, John the Baptist
was still preaching and baptizing. But already the people were leaving John and going to
hear Jesus. Some of the followers of John the Baptist were not pleased as they saw that
fewer people came to their master, and that the crowds were seeking Jesus.

THE STORY OF THE WATER THAT WAS TURNED INTO WINE



Water Turned To Wine

A few days after Jesus met his followers or disciples at the river Jordan, he came with
these men to a town in Galilee called Cana, to be present at a wedding. In those lands a
feast was always held at a wedding, and often the friends of those who were married
stayed several days, eating and drinking together.

THE STORY OF THE CHILD IN THE TEMPLE



Child At Temple

Jesus was brought to Nazareth when he was a little child not more than three years old;
there he grew up as a boy and a young man, and there he lived until he was thirty years of
age. We should like to know many things about his boyhood, but the Bible tells us very
little.
