Mark 3:1-6;13-19

1. Another time he went into the synagogue, and a man with a shriveled hand was there.
2. Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath.
3. Jesus said to the man with the shriveled hand, "Stand up in front of everyone."
4. Then Jesus asked them, "Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?" But they remained silent.
5. He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored.
6. Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians how they might kill Jesus.

13. Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to him those he wanted, and they came to him.
14. He appointed twelve--designating them apostles --that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach
15. and to have authority to drive out demons.
16. These are the twelve he appointed: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter);
17. James son of Zebedee and his brother John (to them he gave the name Boanerges, which means Sons of Thunder);
18. Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Thaddaeus, Simon the Zealot
19. and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
