Discussion for Luke 9

    In verses 10 and 11 Jesus even made time for others when he wanted quiet time. He could have been irritated, but Jesus received them kindly instead of making them feel they were a bother.

    Anyone who studies scripture and concludes that the Son of man and antichrist are the same is very disturbed or under demonic deception. I pray to my heavenly Father, in Christ Jesus, asking God to have mercy on your soul and to heal you and save YOU according to His will. Amen Matthew 12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. Matthew 13:37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man Matthew 16:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? Matthew 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. Matthew 26:24 The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born. Luke 22:48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

    Verse 54, James and John were asking for war and death. Jesus rebuked them for they still would not embrace the Law of God, do not kill. They think killing for righteous cause is accepted by God. It is not. Their spirit should be peaceful without hate. The Son of man, Antichrist comes in the name of Peace to save his followers by participating in war and killing and hate.
  • SHIRLEY for verse 23
    I THINK THIS VERSE IS SAYING TO FOLLOW JESUS YOU MUST PICK UP YOUR CROSS, EVERY THING THAT JESUS ACCOMPLISH ON THE CROSS IS YOUR CROSS,
  • A D Prabhaker Rao for verse 49
    Luke 9:49.This episode is written by luke,perhaps because he might have heard from some people speaking about a man not essentially a close follower of neither jesus nor his diciples but he was able to does miracles on the name of Jesus. John did not mention either his name nor where did he see that man.The essence of mention of this verse is simply to tell to the whole world,one need not be a close diciple of Jesus but even one complete believes in Jesus and trusts him,any body can make miracles and preach the word of truth.luke simply wanted to make it clear to the Jews that,christ no necessarly belongs to Jews alone but to the entire man kind. but any how,bible pandits,Theologians,Interpreters,scholars are not very clear about thia verse and always tries to evade the explanation of this verse.Like wise there are many more episodes are there in bible which are kept under dark and not explained properly.Bible need to be recasted entirely with a logical,rational outlook. The concept of this verse is the as per in Jesus words " The one who believe with out seeing,is better than the one who believe on seeing".In other words " believe blidly" thats what it amounts to.
