DISCIPLES ARRIVED IN DAMASCUS


Then all the disciples came to Damascus, by the will of God. And on that day Judas the traitor, more than any other, made show of having suffered grief at Jesus’ absence, at which Jesus said: “Let every one beware of him who without occasion labours to give you tokens of love.” And God took away our understanding, that we might not know to what end he said this. After the coming of all the disciples, Jesus said: “Let us return into Galilee, for the angel of God has said to me that I must go there.”

So one Sabbath morning, Jesus came to Nazareth. When the citizens recognized Jesus, everyone desired to see him. A publican named Zacchaeus, who was of small stature, not being able to see Jesus because of the great multitude, climbed to the top of a sycamore, and there waited for Jesus to pass that place when he went to the synagogue. Jesus then, having come to that place, lifted up his eyes and said: “Come down, Zacchaeus, for today I will abide in your house.” The man came down and received him with gladness, making a splendid feast.

The Pharisees murmured, saying to Jesus’ disciples: “Why [has] your master gone in to eat with publicans and sinners?” Jesus answered: “Why does the physician [enter] into a house? Tell me, and I will tell you why I am come in here.” They answered: “To heal the sick.” “You say the truth,” said Jesus, “for [those who are] whole have no need of medicine, only the sick.
