The Teachings and Miracles of Jesus during His Third Year of Public Ministry Part 1 
(Part 2 & Part 3)
 
The beginning of the third year of Christ's ministry was quite different from the previous periods of His public life. Opposition by the Jewish leaders had increased; their jealousy of His popularity had grown; and Christ modified His own manner of action by appearing less in public and by devoting most of His time to the training of His Apostles and His closest disciples. However, toward the end of this third year, after He had gone to Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles, Christ vigorously proclaimed His Kingdom in the face of opposition from the Jews.

After denunciation of the Pharises Christ journeyed into the pagan lands northeast of Galilee, where, at the start of this journey, He cured the child of the Syrophoenician woman.

Travelling to with His Apostles to Phoenicia He ministered in Tyre and Sidon then journeyed southeast into Decapolis. He then crossed the Sea of Galilee and landed at Magdala. The incident of Peter's confession took place near Caesarea Philippi. After the descent of Mount Hermon following the Transfiguration, Jesus cured the young boy possessed by a devil. He and His Apostles then returned to Galilee where He continued training the Apostles.

(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 three. The links to the other pages are above and below.

The Teachings and Miracles of Jesus during His Third Year of Public Ministry - Part 2; Part 3

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
