Daughter more than me is not worthy of me. & <​And​> he that <​who​> taketh not his cross, & followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that <​who​> findeth <​seeketh to save​> his life shall loose it; & he that <​who​> looseth his life for <​14/​> my sake shall find it. <​14/​> He that <​who​> receiveth you; receiveth me; & he that <​who​> receiveth me, receiveth him that <​who​> sent me. He that receiveth a prophet, in the name of a prophet, shall receive a Prophet’s reward; & he that receiveth a righteous man, in the name of a righteous man; shall receive a righteous man’s reward. & <​And​> whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones, a cup of cold watter only, in the name of a Deciple, Verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise loose his reward.
Matthew, Chapter 11
Chapter XI John sendeth his Deciples to Christ the testimony of Christ concerning John &c
<​1/​> And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve Deciples, he departed thence to teach & to preach in their Cities. <​2/​> Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his deciples, & said unto him, Art thou he of whom it is written in the prophets that should come, or do we look for an other? <​3/​> Jesus answered & said unto them, Go & tell John again of those things which ye <​do​> hear & See; how the blind receive their sight, & the lame walk, & the lepers are cleansed, & the deaf hear, & the dead are raised up, & the poor have the Gospel preached unto them. & <​And​> blessed is John, <​4/​> & whosoever shall not be offended in me. <​4/​> & <​And​> as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? Was it a reed shaken with the wind? And they answered him, No. & <​And​> he said, But what went ye out for to see? Was it a man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they that wear soft raiment are in Kings Houses. But what went ye out for to see? A Prophet? <​yea​> I say unto you, & more than a prophet. For this is the one of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare they <​thy​> way before thee. Verily I say unto you, among them that are born of women, there hath not a risen a greater than John the Baptist; notwithstanding, he that is least in the Kingdom of Heaven, is <​5/​> greater than he. <​5/​> And from the days of John the Baptist, untill now the Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, & the violent take it by force. But the days will come, when the violent will <​shall​> have no power; for all the Prophets & the law prophecied, that it should be thus untill John. Yea, as many as have prophecied, have [p. 20 (first numbering)]

Chapter XI John sendeth his Deciples to Christ the testimony of Christ concerning John &c
1/ And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve Deciples, he departed thence to teach & to preach in their Cities. 2/ Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his deciples, & said unto him, Art thou he of whom it is written in the prophets that should come, or do we look for an other? 3/ Jesus answered & said unto them, Go & tell John again of those things which ye do hear & See; how the blind receive their sight, & the lame walk, & the lepers are cleansed, & the deaf hear, & the dead are raised up, & the poor have the Gospel preached unto them. & And blessed is John, 4/ & whosoever shall not be offended in me. 4/ & And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? Was it a reed shaken with the wind? And they answered him, No. & And he said, But what went ye out for to see? Was it a man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they that wear soft raiment are in Kings Houses. But what went ye out for to see? A Prophet? yea I say unto you, & more than a prophet. For this is the one of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Verily I say unto you, among them that are born of women, there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist; notwithstanding, he that is least in the Kingdom of Heaven, is 5/ greater than he. 5/ And from the days of John the Baptist, untill now the Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, & the violent take it by force. But the days will come, when the violent shall have no power; for all the Prophets & the law prophecied, that it should be thus untill John.
