Luke 13:1 There were present at that season some that told him of the
Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans
were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them,
think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
6 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in
his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
7 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 cumbereth it the ground?
This Parable is combining the fig tree and the
Jeremiah 24:3 Then said the Lord unto me, What
seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good
figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that
cannot be eaten, they are so evil.
Hosea 9:10 I found Israel like grapes in the
wilderness; I saw your fathers as the first ripe
in the fig tree at her first time: but they went
to Baal-peor, and separated themselves unto that
shame; and their abominations were according as

till I shall dig about it, and dung it:

10 And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.
11 And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity
eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up
12 And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her,
Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.
13 And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight,
and glorified God.
14 And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because
that Jesus had healed on the Sabbath day, and said unto the people,
There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come
and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day.
15 The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each
one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and
lead him away to watering?
Jesus had healed on the Sabbath Day. The ruler of
the synagogue didn't like it.
16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan
hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the
17 And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed:
and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done
18 Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto
shall I resemble it?
19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into
his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the
air lodged in the branches of it.
20 And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?
21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of
meal, till the whole was leavened.
22 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying
23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he
said unto them,
24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will
seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the
door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying,
Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know
you not whence ye are:
26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence,
and thou hast taught in our streets.
27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart
from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see
Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of
God, and you yourselves thrust out.
29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the
north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.

John 11:40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto
thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou
shouldest see the glory of God?
41 Then they took away the stone from the place
where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his
eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou
hast heard me.
42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but
because of the people which stand by I said it,
that they may believe that thou hast sent me.
43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a
loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand
and foot with grave clothes: and his face was
bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto
them, Loose him, and let him go.

Luke 11:43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the
synagogues, and greetings in the markets.
44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves
which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.
45 Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus
saying thou reproachest us also.
46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with
burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens
with one of your fingers.
47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and
fathers killed them.

they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and
apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the
foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;

Acts 28:25 And when they agreed not among
themselves, they departed, after that Paul had
spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Spirit by
Esaias the prophet unto our fathers,
26 Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing
ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and
seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:
27 For the heart of this people is waxed gross,
and their ears are dull of hearing, and their
eyes have they closed; lest they should see with
their eyes, and hear with their ears, and
understand with their heart, and should be
converted, and I should heal them.

salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and
that they will hear it.
