1 Jesus' call to repentance
1 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galileans were sinners above all the Galileans, because they suffered such things?'
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.'
5 I tell you, Nay: but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.'
6 He spake also this parable; Is. 5:2;Mat. 21:19A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.'
7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?'
8 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:'
9 And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.'
10 A woman healed on the sabbath
10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.
11 And behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.
12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thy infirmity.'
13 Mark 16:18;Acts 9:17And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, Ex. 20:9There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and Mat. 12:10;Mark 3:2;ch. 6:7;& 14:3not on the sabbath day.
15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, ch. 14:5doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?'
16 And ought not this woman, ch. 19:9being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?'
17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.
18 Parables about the kingdom
18 Mat. 13:31;Mark 4:30Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?'
19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.'
20 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?'
22 The strait gate
22 Mat. 9:35;Mark 6:6And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying towards Jerusalem.
23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,
24 Mat. 7:13Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for See John 7:34;& 8:21;& 13:33;Rom. 9:31many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.'
25 Ps. 32:6;Is. 55:6When once the master of the house is risen up, and Mat. 25:10hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, ch. 6:46Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, Mat. 7:23;& 25:12I know you not whence you are:'
26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.'
27 ver. 25;Mat. 7:23;& 25:41But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence you are; Ps. 6:8;Mat. 25:41depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.'
28 Mat. 8:12;& 13:42;& 24:51There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, Mat. 8:11when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.'
29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.'
30 Mat. 19:30;& 20:16;Mark 10:31And behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.'
31 The lament over Jerusalem
31 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hence: for Herod will kill thee.
32 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day Heb. 2:10I shall be perfected.'
33 Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.'
34 Mat. 23:37O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not?'
35 Behold, Lev. 26:31,32;Ps. 69:25;Is. 1:7;Dan. 9:27;Mic. 3:12your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Ps. 118:26;Mat. 21:9;Mark 11:10;ch. 19:38;John 12:13Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.'
