Yehoshua  (יהושע) heals a man on Yom Shabbat

(Mat 12:9-14; Luke 6:6-11)

3:1 And He entered again into the Shul; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.

3:2 And they watched Him, whether He would heal Him on Shabbat; that they might accuse Him.

3:3 And He said to the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.

3:4 And He said to them, Is it mutar (permissive) to do good on Shabbot, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they were silent.

3:5 And when He had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, Stretch forth your hand. And He stretched [it] out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

3:6 And the Prushim went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodianoi against Him, how they might destroy Him.

A Multitude follows Yehoshua  (יהושע) by the sea

3:7 But Yeshua (ישוע) withdrew himself with His Talmidim to the sea: and a great multitude from Galil followed Him, and from Yehudah,

3:8 And from Yerushalayim, and from Idoumaia, and [from] beyond Yarden; and they about Turos and Tzidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things He did, came to Him.

3:9 And He speak to His Talmidim, that a small ship should wait on Him because of the multitude, lest they should throng Him.

3:10 For He had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon Him for to touch Him, as many as had plagues.

3:11 And ruachot hatemeiot (unclean spirits), when they saw Him, fell down before Him, and cried, saying, You art the Ben Elohim.

3:12 And He severely rebuked them that they should not make Him known.

Yehoshua  (יהושע) chooses twelve Shaliach

Matt 10:2-4; Mark 3:16-19; Luke 6:14-16; Acts 1:13

3:13 And He goes up into a mountain, and calls [to him] whom He would: and they came to Him.

3:14 And He ordained twelve, that they should be with Him, and that He might send them forth to proclaim,

3:15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out shedim:

3:16 And Shimon He gaven a name Kefa;

3:17 And Ya'akov Ben Zavdai, and Yochanan the brother of Ya'akov; and He gave them a name Beni-Reges, which is, sons of thunder:

3:18 And Andreas, and Philip, and Bar-Talmai, and Mattityahu, and Toma, and Ya'akov Ben Chalfai, and Thaddaios, and Shimon the Canaanite,

3:19 And Yudah Kriot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.

Yehoshua  (יהושע) and Ba'al Zevuv

(Matt 12:22-32; Luke 11:14-23; 12:10)

3:20 And the multitude comes together again, so that they could not so much as eat lechem.

3:21 And when his friends heard [of it], they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.

3:22 And the Sofrim which came down from Yerushalayim said, He is possessed by Ba'al Zevuv (בַּעַל זְבוּב- Βααλζεβούβ), and by the prince of the shedim casts He out shedim.

3:23 And He called them [to him], and said to them in meshalim (parables), How can satan cast out satan?

3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

3:26 And if satan rise up against himself, and be divided, He cannot stand, but has an end.

3:27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except He will first bind the strong man; and then He will spoil his house.

3:28 Truly I say to you:

All sins shall be forgiven to sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:

3:29 But He that shall blaspheme against Ruach HaKodesh has never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

3:30 Because they said, He has a Ruach hatumah (רוח טמאה) .

Yehoshua's Mother and Brothers

(Matt 12:46-50; Luke 8:19-21)

3:31 Then His brothers and His mother came, and standing outside they sent to Him, calling Him.

3:32 And a multitude was sitting around Him; and they said to Him, "Look, Your mother and Your brothers are outside seeking You."

3:33 And He answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?

3:34 And He looked round about on them which sat about Him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

3:35 For whosoever shall do the will of Elohim, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.

The twelve Shaliach - Matt 10:2-4; Mark 3:16-19; Luke 6:14-16; Acts 1:13

Mattityahu and Markos have the name Taddai while Loukas, in his his two list (Luke and Acts 1)  has Yehuda (of Ya'akov). Some sought Yehudah may have been his original anem and that it was changed later to Taddai ( menaing warm hearded) in order to avoid the stigma attached to the name Yehudah K'riot

unclean spirit is a common rendering of Greek pneuma akatharton (plural pneumata akatharta),the Greek term appears 21 times in the Brit Hadashah in the context of demonic possession. Its single occurrence in the Septuagint translates Hebrew ruach tum'ah (רוח טומאה).

Ba'al Zevuv - is a name derived from a Philistine dieties, formerly worshipped in Ekron.It is also associated with the Canaanite dieties Baal. The name Ba'al Zevuv (Hebrew: בעל זבוב‎) is found in Melachim II 1:2-3, 6, 16, where King Ahazyah of Yisrael, after seriously injuring himself in a fall, sends messengers to inquire of Ba'al Zevuv, the god of the Philistine city of Ekron, to learn if he will recover. EliYahu the Prophet then condemns Ahazyah to die by HaShem's words because Ahaziah sought counsel from Ba'al Zevuv rather than from HaShem. ( Matt 10:25; 10:25; 12:27; Mar 3:22; Luke 11:15, 18, 19)
