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

  • Htrixmon
    If you look at the word men it is in italics. This means the word men was supplied by the translator or added. Read the verse without the word men because that is how it is in the original text. I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed the one will be taken and the other left.
  • Brianna vs. 1-4
    These scriptures reminds us that problems with our fellow man are sure to come. However, it all reminds us of how to deal with "stumbling". It's not wrong to rebuke our brother for the wrong they made have made against us, but if they ask for forgiveness, then we are to sincerely forgive them from the heart. A hard but valuable lesson.
  • Spirit Child of God
    The Bible is a three-fold message, within the message. The material for the body, the psychological for righteous thinking of the mind, and the spiritual for our spirit salvation in God, which is of supreme importance! If our bodies are the temple of God and his kingdom is within us it doesn t take rocket science to figure out that our spirit is God and his kingdom in us! For God is the kingdom
  • Servant of God
    Who among you is sharp enough to discern what this doctrine is about. It surely is not about political power, abortion reversal, 2nd amendment, presumption of salvation, self-righteousness, ad nauseum. It is about work! And not for personal gain, but secretly, to warrant grace from the Father. He alone can reward or punish, bless or correct. That is what this chapter is about. Give glory!
  • A disciple
    (continued) This is not to further argue with those who want to believe fantasies rather than receive instruction from the Spirit of Truth; but that everyone knows, it was APOSTASY OF BELIEVERS that caused the destruction of all piety and fear of God in the world, by their casting off the bonds of the Spirit and moral restraint. The flood of Noah however did not wash this evil out of men's hearts.
  • A disciple
    "But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation: and as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man." In Genesis 6 is first shown the root cause of the complete and utter ruin of the world, and of its being filled with violence and every thought of men's hearts every day only evil continually: REJECTION OF GOD'S SPIRIT BY THOSE WHO KNEW!
