Amos 2:4— Thus saith the Lord; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have despised the law of the Lord, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked: People also reject the Lord because they have deceived themselves into thinking they don't need Him or there is nothing wrong with them. It is also not clear what "work" Jesus had done for He had only spoken and then touched the woman. The longer sinners wait, the harder their hearts become. This is the same prophecy as we see here in Luke 13, and there is no reason to not accept that He spoke it on separate occasions. Try to find by searching for what is lost.

Galilaios - 11x in 10v  - Galilean(4), Galileans(5), Galilee(2). The point is that we must be vigilant all the time, not just when the times feel perilous. Have you personally entered through the narrow door? In this approach the literal is superficial, the allegorical is the true meaning." "Break off your sins . All those roads. Pilate ignored their protests and ordered them, on pain of death, to stop bothering him. 18:25; Lk. True Christianity will cost a man his sins. Their name is legion, who are so bound together by the love of the world that they cannot lift their faces to Heaven. And this woman - He has just spoken of the acceptable practice of one treating his ox or his donkey in a humane manner, and carries this logic over to this poor woman's horrible condition. In an immeasurably more dramatic and important way, God would demonstrate through the church how a handful of believers, totally weak and inept in themselves, would in His power turn the world upside down. Yes, God has a mercifully "long fuse", but it will not last forever for those who continually reject His Son. He must give up every false way. 2:13; Ps. 20:19; Acts 1:12; Acts 13:14; Acts 13:27; Acts 13:42; Acts 13:44; Acts 15:21; Acts 16:13; Acts 17:2; Acts 18:4; Acts 20:7; 1 Co. 16:2; Col. 2:16--note, Sabbaton - 90v in the Septuagint Ex 16:23,25-26,29; 20:8,10; 31:13-16; 35:2-3; Lev.

They would falsely reason that the victims of Pilate's wrath must have been especially sinful or wicked or otherwise God would not have allowed them to be killed.

Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven (Equates with genuine salvation); but he who does (present tense = their habitual practice, the general direction of their life.

I am not afraid of Herod threatening to kill me, for I am immortal till my work is done.” He is not even flurried, or put about by such a message as that. We learn first from this passage that where God gives spiritual privileges He expects proportionate returns..... We learn, secondly, from this passage, that it is a most dangerous thing to be unfruitful under great religious privileges..... We learn, lastly, from this parable, what an infinite debt we all owe to God’s mercy and Christ’s intercession.... Steven Cole summarizes the Parable of the Fig Tree - “But,” you may ask, “how can I know that my repentance is genuine? Jesus’ first reference to weeping and gnashing of teeth comes in Matthew 8:12+ where He compares the kingdom of heaven to a feast where “many” come from all parts of the world to “recline at the table with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” The others, however, are thrown into “outer darkness” where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. If this is saving Christianity and will take us to heaven when we die, we must alter the description of the way of life, and write, "Wide is the gate and broad is the way He doesn't force Himself on people. Their hearts will be changed and eyes will be opened. Down through the centuries, Satan, the master counterfeiter, has smuggled religious people into churches in order to keep the others from a genuine, heart-transforming experience with God. And why was Israel literally cursed? This was roughly equivalent to being governor of a region. Thirdly, when the Lord called out to this woman, this would focus the attention of all the people upon her. She probably could not even look up at Him, since she was bent over with her face toward the ground. Christ preaches the necessity of repentance, from the punishment of the Galileans massacred by Pilate, Luk 13:1-3. A mustard seed is a small round seed usually about 1-2 mm diameter and yellowish white to black. 12:38; Lk. I can guarantee that many will try to enter, but they won't succeed.

In this image, Jesus reveals God’s heart. House (household, home) (3624)(oikos) refers to a place of habitation here "your house" (cf Mt 23:38) seems to refer to the Temple (which was the "house of God" - Mt. Iniquity (93)(adikia from a = not + dikê = right) is a condition of not being right, whether with God, according to the standard of His holiness and righteousness or with man, according to the standard of what man knows to be right by his conscience. Then I re-read it and think it is about Jesus' victory over Satan's oppression. Longsuffering Compassion.

Tony Evans says "All the funds necessary to pay for our total redemption were put up by Jesus Christ on the Cross." But what sane man or woman can doubt that it is worth any cost to have the soul saved? In the Septuagint, where hamartōlos appears frequently, it usually translates the Hebrew rāshā‛, “wicked” or “criminal.” It also translates other Hebrew terms, especially those which describe someone who has violated the covenant with God or who has sinned against His law. "To bend over backwards." (Lk 8:14-note, cp Mk 4:19 amplifies Luke's description adding "deceitfulness" and "desires"), John Piper comments on the previous two passages that neither of these "enter through the narrow door. One of them wrote, “Great is peace, in that peace is to the earth as leaven is to the dough.” When a Jewish girl was married, her mother would give her a small piece of leavened dough from a batch baked just before the wedding. Many (pollus) means just that - not a few but a large number of souls. All His opponents - All means "all" without exception. The imperfect tense pictures her as over and over, again and again giving glory to God. Jesus did not answer the question; but he did what was better. Liberal politicians may use legislation to erase Jesus from our society like a little boy that smooths the sand on the beach to cover his footprints, but one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus Christ as Lord. For Herod wants to kill You - Keep in mind that at this time Jesus was either in Perea (favored by MacArthur - cf.    Praise for growth as of leaf or flower  3:17; Hag. 3:10. 6 “I will lay it waste; It will not be pruned or hoed, But briars and thorns will come up. (James 2:10). 3:2). (Luke 13), Whatever others may do in religion the Lord Jesus would have us know that our duty is clear. After saying that we should “strive to enter through the narrow door,” he refers to a master of a house who rises and shuts the door so that no one else can enter (Luke 13:25). This business of getting saved, living a Christian life and winning others, is a full-time occupation. (BECNT- Luke). According to rabbinical ideas, the disciples, by plucking ears of corn (Mt 12:1 ; Mk 2:23 ), and rubbing them (Luke 6:1-note), broke the "Sabbath" in two respects; for to pluck was to reap, and to rub was to thresh. If  is the conjunction kan (2579) which is a combination of two conjunctions kai ( = and) and ean (= if). It boasts in numbers, even if there is open sin in the camp. (Mt 24:44), In explaining to His disciples and the multitudes what it meant to come after Him, denying self, taking up one's cross and following Him, Jesus declared that, whoever wishes to save (sozo) (referring to one's physical life) his life shall lose it (eternally); but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's shall save (sozo) (spiritually) it (eternally). But let none despond either as to themselves or others, for there are last who shall be first, and first who shall be last. (Lk 24:46-47), (Peter) "God raised Him up on the third day, and granted that He should become visible, (Acts 10:40), Allison Trites agrees with the thought that the third day was an allusion to the resurrection writing "The mention of the “third day” here is a strong pointer to Jesus’ coming resurrection.
