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 13:1

  • Stephen M Njiro for verse 1
    Death, or the manner of death, whether through teh cruelty of others, through an accident or through any other means, is not important as such. What is important is that by the time it is our turn to walk that road, that we should have made our peace with God. He holds the key to the life to come and He alone can guarantee our personal safety and security in this life as well as in eternity.
