Discussion for Luke 17

    LUKE 17:1 then said HE unto the disciples it is impossible but that offences will come but woe unto him through whom they come --17:2-- it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and he cast into the sea than that he should offend one of these little ones --17:3-- take heed to yourselves if thy brother trespass against thee --- REBUKE HIM ---and if he repent forgive him

    Verse 6~True faith can result in miracles. Having strong faith in Jesus Christ and Jehovah God can help us to overcome any obstacle.
  • BSP
    Verses 20,21~Jesus indicated that it would take discernment to recognize the signs of the last days and perceive where we are in the stream of time.
  • A disciple
    "And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger." The Lord knows when the crowds are thronging and pressing at Him, and when one touches Him in faith that virtue goes out from Him. Jesus also is aware of how many take His healing and salvation and go their way NOT returning to give God glory.
  • A disciple
    "Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I expect not. So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do." When we have been explicitly told what we are to believe and do, and how to think of ourselves, how then is obedience something special or extra?
  • A disciple
    "Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!" Keeping with the context and continuance of the previous chapters, it was the covetous and hostile disobedient rich who derided the Lord and let Lazarus perish with poverty and hunger right at their own front gate. This kind treat Christians the same way, without any concern.
