People's Bible Notes for Luke 13:1


Lu 13:1 Christ Still Teaching SUMMARY OF LUKE 13: The Galileans Slain by Pilate. Those on Whom the Tower of Siloam Fell. The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree. The Suffering Woman Healed in the Synagogue. Parable of the Mustard Seed. Parable of the Leaven. Entering in at the Strait Gate. The Warning about Herod. The Woe of Jerusalem. Some that told him of the Galileans, etc. The incident referred to is not mentioned elsewhere. Tumults at the temple and bloody interference by the Romans were common. On this occasion, no doubt, many had been slain in the temple courts, and from what follows it is evident that those who brought the word thought it a judgment.

Discussion for Luke 13

  • Anna
    Irene: No contradiction. Reading the bible will not save us. We can read it with a prayer that God will feed us with what we need. There are people who repent just before death who have never read the bible. (the thief on the cross) Someone with the holy spirit can preach to them. First the law and then to a broken and contrite heart- the forgiveness of sins.
  • Irene123
    Anna - first you agreed with Steph, then you disagreed with him; you've got me confused. Do we need to read the Bible or not?
  • Lu2677
    Bruce, please read Luke 13:27-30 and Matthew 20:16 "Many will be called, few will be chosen"
    Don't let this be you. Furthermore, in your attempt to sway me from the truth you may just be causing a weaker one to fall. I believe God said "Woe to you" in this case. You have not made an impression on me. I will leave you to your unbelief and hope the Lord will deliver you from your deception.
  • Anna
    Steph: That's right. Nobody needs to be a bible scholar to be saved. We can be simple sheep. First we need to hear the two edged sword, word of God, preaching of sins and need for repentance. It must burn our conscience that only hell is before us. Find His own flock for release. We need to have the right self knowledge and put away the daily sins that burden us and make our walk difficult.
  • Steve morrow
    LUKE 13:4 OR THOSE EIGHTEEN UPON WHOM THE TOWER IN SILOAM FELL AND SLEW THEM THINK YOU THAT THEY WERE SINNERS ABOVE ALL MEN THAT DWELT IN JERUSALEM 13:5 I TELL YOU NO BUT EXCEPT YOU REPENT YOU SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH
  • Stephende
    Chap.13 tells us that what you assume is not necessarily so. We shall all perish if we don't repent, which is to say that we depend no longer on our assumptions but on the Word of God. It is the most difficult thing, the strait gate and is not for everyone but this is the calling! This is why Jesus came, not to the religious but to the people. He came to criticise, not to cajole. So be it
