The Teachings and Miracles of Jesus during His Second Year of Public Ministry - 
Part I (Part 2 Here)
 
This period of Christ's life opened in Jerusalem where He had come for the second Pash of His public Life. His cure of a paralytic on the Sabbath brought on persecution from the Jews and Christ retired promptly to Galilee, where He continued to preach and to work miracles. During this period He chose His twelve Apostles and told them of His Kingdom.

Christ's selection of twelve of His numerous disciples to be Apostles was a big step in the foundation of His Kingdom. This choice was immediately followed by the Sermon on the Mount, which has been called the Charter of His Kingdom. Both the selection of the Apostles and the Sermon on the Mount occured on the hill west of Lake Genesareth.

The pool of Bethsaida was located north of the Temple in Jerusalem. After His discourse with the Jews in the City Christ returned north to Galilee, a journey of about 80 miles. The location of the early cures specified were performed in Capharnaum and on the shore of Lake Genesareth. After the cure of the centurion's son Christ travelled the 24 mile journey from Capharnaum south to Naim. It was also here that the annointing of Christ took place, thought to be by Mary Magdalen.

(The Two Patricks in County Tyrone, Ireland, have written a series of books on the life and times of Jesus and they are a really excellent read - they are published under the titles of Song of The Carpenter I & II. Well worth buying and excellent for schools for Religious Instruction) Below are the biblical references for the various events according to each evangelist. Because of the length of this section it has been divided into two. The links to the next page are above and below.

The Teachings and Miracles of Jesus during His Second Year of Public Ministry - Part 2

Under our section on The Bible we have attempted to give a 'potted history' and some explanations around divine inspiration, translations and interpretation. In order to make your reading of the New Testament teachings of the Life of Christ a little easier we have looked at the time of Jesus from His Conception to His Ascension according to the writings of the four evangelists, and categorised the various events and teachings with reference to the chapter and verse of each writer. 

We start with Jesus' Infancy & Childhood; then move on to the start of Jesus' Public Ministry. There is no historical proof of actual times available but we have used the Douay Challoner version to divide the three years of Jesus' ministry as His First Year of Public Ministry; His Second Year of Public Ministry; His Third Year of Public Ministry; the events leading into His time of betrayal and suffering during Holy Week; the events surrounding Holy Thursday when He instituted the bloodless sacrifice of the Eucharist to be carried out in His name for perpetuity; the events surrounding His suffering, passion and death on Good Friday; and finally His Burial, Resurection and Ascension into Heaven.


Moytura has several other sites with a 'Christian flavour'. Prayerful Thoughts & Thoughtful Prayers is a little collection of prayers and thought-provoking stories, and a few links to some other really nice websites. Reflections for Lent offers a daily meditation for the 40 days of lent and the week leading into Easter. As part of my Journey section of the website join me to learn a little of the Early Christian Church in Ireland by visiting Clonmacnoise, founded by St. Ciaran on the banks of the River Shannon in the 6th. Century. Read about Saint Brendan the Navigator who started a Monastic settlement in the tiny village of Clonfert in the 6th century, located on the Galway/Offaly/Tipperary border. Travel on my journeys to two of Canada's most famous Catholic Shrines - Saint Anne de Beaupré and Cap de la Madeleine, both on the shores of the Saint Lawrence river in Quebec. Finally I welcome you to come with me to see a little of Medugorje, a peaceful haven in a war-torn country - Bosnia-Herzogovina. Please also pay a visit to  Moytura's Irish Bookshop where you can find books on the history of Christianity in IrelandIrish Prayers and Celtic Christianity
