People's Bible Notes for Luke 10:1


Lu 10:1 The Seventy Disciples Sent Forth SUMMARY OF LUKE 10: Seventy Preachers Chosen. The Harvest Ready but the Laborers Few. The Charge. The Warning to Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum. The Return of the Seventy. The Lawyer's Question. Who Is My Neighbor?. The Parable of the Good Samaritan. Martha and Mary. After these things. All that we can be certain of as to the time when the seventy were appointed is that it was "after" the events Luke has already related. There are reasons for thinking that it was near the close of our Lord's ministry. It is usually located in the country east of the Jordan, when the Lord began his last journey to Jerusalem. Appointed other seventy. He had already sent forth the apostles (Lu 9:1), and he now sent forth seventy preachers more. That he could find seventy fitted for this mission shows that his teaching was making a deep impression on the Galileans. Sent them two and two. That each one might have a helper, a counselor and a sympathizer. Into every city and place. As the time of his earthly ministry shortened, it increased in earnestness and activity. The Lord in person visited as many places as possible, and these messengers were sent before to preach to the people and to prepare the way.
