Luke 6:12-19 & Intro to Luke's Sermon on the Mount

Luke 6:12-19


12 Now it was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer with God.13 And when day came, He called His disciples to Him and chose twelve of them, whom He also named as apostles:14 Simon, whom He also named Peter, and his brother Andrew; and James and John; and Philip and Bartholomew; 15 and Matthew and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot;16 Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.


17 And then Jesus came down with them and stood on a level place; and there was a large crowd of His disciples, and a great multitude of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon, 18 who had come to hear Him and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled by unclean spirits were being cured.19 And all the people were trying to touch Him, because power was coming from Him and healing them all.
