Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Luke 13:3


13:3 Ye shall all likewise perish - All ye of Galilee and of Jerusalem shall perish in the very same manner. So the Greek word implies. And so they did. There was a remarkable resemblance between the fate of these Galileans and of the main body of the Jewish nation; the flower of which was slain at Jerusalem by the Roman sword, while they were assembled at one of their great festivals. And many thousands of them perished in the temple itself, and were literally buried under its ruins.


People's Bible Notes for Luke 13:3


Lu 13:3 I tell you, Nay. He does not deny that they were sinners, but that they were greater sinners than others. Except ye repent. All were so great sinners that only repentance could save them. It was only a generation until the words of the Lord were strikingly fulfilled. The impenitent Jewish nation was destroyed by the Roman sword, as were those Galileans.

Discussion for Luke 13

  • A disciple
    "Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbers it the ground?" We were not born into this world for ourselves to idly "cumber the ground" that we occupy. We are made by God and for God and God has provided all things for us to live and be saved. If we don't produce good fruit we are worthless!
  • The Knight
    Oh ye of little faith, who trust in riches as a reward! Little do you know the apocalypse is at your door and the fox is in the henhouse. You have let him in for your perversions and greed. The evil one cut thru your armor which you trusted in and tear you to pieces. Oh that you were even somewhat conscious of what is to come. Your so called armor won't even save. It will make it easier for.
  • A disciple
    Cross Faith (cont.); Yes! Putting on the WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD means, THE ENTIRE WORD OF GOD! Many fantasize and pretend they have a walk with Jesus because they go to a certain church and parrot their favorite preachers' lingo; thinking that they are serving God, while their responses indicate that the Holy Spirit and sound understanding of the Scriptures is completely foreign to them and a threat.
  • A disciple
    Cross Faith; I'm sorry, I don't understand your comment; are you agreeing with what I wrote, and seek a friendly conversation, or are you assuming something else? If you like to talk about the things of the Lord, that's wonderful; and I hope we can edify each other. But if you're just another one with a churchy-spirit who is full of "another gospel" than the Word of God... How can I help you?
  • Cross Faith
    Hey disciple. I've been reading several of your comments throughout the gospels. Put on the full armor of God everyday is a great thing to do.
  • A disciple
    "Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbers it the ground?" I put these posts in, seeking discussion about the things of the Lord, and when I write to open a discussion with others, its the same; NO REPLY! Our responsiveness to the Spirit of the LORD should be out of a ready mind of love.
