People's Bible Notes for Luke 17:5


Lu 17:5 Increase our faith. They desire more faith. In the face of the overwhelming odds against them, the general unbelief, and the fact that Jesus would not be the kind of a Christ that they and all the Jews had expected, they felt the need of more faith.

Discussion for Luke 17

  • Times and laws
    two men in the bed, those who sleep in their dusty beds, there are those who are resurrected and those who are not at the days of the son of man, two women : two churches Yahs true church and the Babylon church, two in field: laborers for Yah, laborers for satan, Taken in Everlasting death. As in Noahs day
  • William Iannucci
    Why has our country by the known Churches turned away ,is there not any to make a difference? I am unknown but am well known by my Master for he is in me though I be not Christ and shall continue to do exploits in honor of the Lord God Almighty who rules and reigns forever. SELAH AMEN PS Even thoughs who call on his name shall be delivered from darkness unto light through Christ who alone is JESUS

    And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 2 Thess 2:8 KJB
  • Bruce
    disciple: You have that backwards. Noah and his Family were taken away from the destruction coming. The same with Lots Family. The same is going to happen in the end. He will take The Ones Washed in His Blood away from The Wrath coming on The Whole World and so shall We ever be with The Lord. Has He Tugged on Your Heart? Ask Forgiveness. You will be Washed,Baptized,Changed. Salvation is WOW!!!
  • A disciple
    Peter; from the examples used by the Lord here; who were the ones remaining? not the wicked, but the saved! Only Noah, and they that were with him in the ark were left after the cataclysm. Of all those who lived in the cities of the plain, on the south shore of what is now the Dead Sea; only Lot and his family escaped the overthrow of fire and burning sulfur. Read Matthew 13; the evil are removed.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    May we NOT be among those who will be left behind when the Lord shall come. To ensure that this happens, we must be ready for His Kingdom through our being washed in the Blood of the Lamb. This chapter also underscores the importance of appreciating God's goodness towards us. One out of the ten lepers returned to thank Jesus.
