Bible: Luke 13:10-18

Healing on the Sabbath

13:10 Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues 1  on the Sabbath, 13:11 and a woman was there 2  who had been disabled by a spirit 3  for eighteen years. She 4  was bent over and could not straighten herself up completely. 5  13:12 When 6  Jesus saw her, he called her to him 7  and said, “Woman, 8  you are freed 9  from your infirmity.” 10  13:13 Then 11  he placed his hands on her, and immediately 12  she straightened up and praised God. 13:14 But the president of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, said to the crowd, “There are six days on which work 13  should be done! 14  So come 15  and be healed on those days, and not on the Sabbath day.” 13:15 Then the Lord answered him, 16 You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from its stall, 17  and lead it to water? 18  13:16 Then 19  shouldn’t 20  this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan 21  bound for eighteen long 22  years, be released from this imprisonment 23  on the Sabbath day? 13:17 When 24  he said this all his adversaries were humiliated, 25  but 26  the entire crowd was rejoicing at all the wonderful things 27  he was doing. 28 

On the Kingdom of God

13:18 Thus Jesus 29  asked, 30 What is the kingdom of God 31  like? 32  To 33  what should I compare it?
