Lu 10:17 The seventy returned again with joy. How long after they were sent forth is unknown. Even the devils are subject to us through thy name. In accordance with the promise made to the twelve, and probably repeated to the seventy (Mt 10:8). All was wrought by the power of Christ's name.

Discussion for Luke 10

  • Son of David
    You see that Jesus was every bit as human as you or me, even subject to emotions of doubt and distress. What a teacher! He demonstrates not as rhe hypocrites who say and who does not practice. What is love but the word of the Father which Jesus received and gave to whosoever he would. Their is no respect of persons with Jesus, the Christ. He came to earth miraculously and went his way sowing

    Anna - I guess your Bible says - "locked"; the KJV just says shut. That's okay, they very well could have been locked - for fear of the unbelieving Jews.
