Luke 13 Study & Breakdown/ Repent & Strive to be Saved!!!

LUKE 13


WHAT HAPPENS TO THE UNREPENTANT

Luke 13:1-5

13:1-5: THESE TWO HISTORICAL INCIDENTS- ( vv. 1, 4): are only reported in Luke: The slain GALILEANS were more than likely zealots, Jewish Nationalists, who triggered some disturbance against the Romans: The collapse of the TOWER IN SILOAM, could have been by accident or even sabotage, was believed to be divine justice on sinners: Christ denies this suffering was God's judgement; instead, He uses these events as indications on those who PERISH BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT REPENT:


THE CRITICAL TIME OF REPENTANCE

Luke 13:6-9

13:6-8: THE FRITLESS FIG TREE: is interpreted in the Church to be all of the fallen humanity: THE THREE YEARS- represent God's covenants with His people through Abraham, Moses, and Christ, all who were rejected, as well as a three-year earthly ministry of Christ: THE KEEPER OF THE VINEYARD is Christ Himself, who intercedes on our behalf that He should suffer His Passion and send the Holy Spirit to us before the final judgement takes place!!!


A WOMAN HEALED ON THE SABBATH

Luke 13:10-17

13:10-17: HEALING ON THE SABBATH: See my Luke 6:7- Notes:

13:16: THINK OF IT: The early saints and fathers interpret this command as directing us to a spiritual meaning for the EIGHTEEN YEARS: The Greek expression is literally translated ten and eight years, both St. Ambrose and Theophylact see the ten representing the ten commandments and the eight representing grace- for the day of Resurrection is often called the eighth day!!! All of humanity is lifted up by the faith in Christ, who fulfills both law and grace!!!

13:10-17: This passage is read on December 9, The Feast of the Conception of the Theotokos.


PARABLES OF THE KINGDOM- See also (Matthew 13:31-32; Mark 4:30-32)

Luke 13:18-21

13:19: THE MUSTARD PLANT: Grows to a height of about 10 feet in Palestine (see, my notes Matthew 13:31-33): 13:31-33: THE MUSTARD SEED AND THE LEAVEN- Represent the disciples- Started out with 12 and eventually the Message and the Word soon became the entire earth!!!


STRIVE TO BE SAVED

Luke 13:22-30

13:24: See my Matthew 7:13-14- Notes: 7:13-14: This is a two way description and was widespread in Judaism according to Scriptures- (Deuteronomy 30:15-20; Psalm 1; Proverbs 4:17-18; Proverbs 12:28; Proverbs 15:23; WSir 15:17) and with other early Christian writings- like the Didache, The Epistle of Barnabas : See Luke's version (Luke 13:24-30) is more referring to the end of age: For we wrestle against the sins and human weaknesses as well as spiritual forces of evil (Ephesians 6:12), That entering the Kingdom of Heaven isn't easy it's a Narrow Gate and few find it according to the Scriptures!!!

13:25-27: NEITHER VERBAL CONFESSIONS (Lord, Lord; v. 25) nor even sacramental experiences (v. 26) do nothing unless we also do the works of faith (see, Luke 6:46-49):

13:30: EARLY SAINTS: See the FIRST WHO BECOMES THE LAST as not only faithless Jews, but also those in the Church who at first put on a show in Christ and have been taught the Word of God, but who later transgress against it the Word of God!!!


JESUS PRESSES ON TOWARD JERUSALEM

Luke 13:31-35

13:32-35: THIS PASSAGE SHOWS: (1): Christ voluntarily going to His Passion, (2): His great love for Jerusalem regardless of its continual state of rebellion, and lastly (3): His foreknowledge of how He will be received on the first Palm Sunday!!!


-Dark days are ahead of us Bible prophecy is just flying off the pages of the Holy Book...

The times are converging meaning the convergence of things that need to take place are now upon us...The time is now to make your preps- your checks on important items you might need...It's good to stay ahead of the tribulations that are upon us, nothing wrong with taking advantage of the writing on the wall...It's better now to get ready now than put it off only to panic later on...So we must live a life of repentance and strive to be saved in these dark times, be both mentally, physically, but most important spiritually prepared for what's ahead...Yeshua is our salvation chose your redemption, and hold the faith never hold back!!!


THE FATHER IS HOPE, THE SON IS MY REFUGE AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IS MY PROTECTION!!!
