Bible: Luke 17:11-37

The Grateful Leper

17:11 Now on 1  the way to Jerusalem, 2  Jesus 3  was passing along 4  between Samaria and Galilee. 17:12 As 5  he was entering 6  a village, ten men with leprosy 7  met him. They 8  stood at a distance, 17:13 raised their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy 9  on us.” 17:14 When 10  he saw them he said, “Go 11  and show yourselves to the priests.” 12  And 13  as they went along, they were cleansed. 17:15 Then one of them, when he saw he was healed, turned back, praising 14  God with a loud voice. 17:16 He 15  fell with his face to the ground 16  at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. 17  (Now 18  he was a Samaritan.) 19  17:17 Then 20  Jesus said, 21 Were 22  not ten cleansed? Where are the other 23  nine? 17:18 Was no one found to turn back and give praise to God except this foreigner? 24  17:19 Then 25  he said to the man, 26 Get up and go your way. Your faith has made you well.” 27 

The Coming of the Kingdom

17:20 Now at one point 28  the Pharisees 29  asked Jesus 30  when the kingdom of God 31  was coming, so he answered, “The kingdom of God is not coming with signs 32  to be observed, 17:21 nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is 33  in your midst.” 34 

The Coming of the Son of Man

17:22 Then 35  he said to the disciples, “The days are coming when you will desire to see one of the days 36  of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. 17:23 Then people 37  will say to you, ‘Look, there he is!’ 38  or ‘Look, here he is!’ Do not go out or chase after them. 39  17:24 For just like the lightning flashes 40  and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. 41  17:25 But first he must 42  suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 17:26 Just 43  as it was 44  in the days of Noah, 45  so too it will be in the days of the Son of Man. 17:27 People 46  were eating, 47  they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage – right up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then 48  the flood came and destroyed them all. 49  17:28 Likewise, just as it was 50  in the days of Lot, people 51  were eating, drinking, buying, selling, planting, building; 17:29 but on the day Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. 52  17:30 It will be the same on the day the Son of Man is revealed. 17:31 On that day, anyone who is on the roof, 53  with his goods in the house, must not come down 54  to take them away, and likewise the person in the field must not turn back. 17:32 Remember Lot’s wife! 55  17:33 Whoever tries to keep 56  his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life 57  will preserve it. 17:34 I tell you, in that night there will be two people in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. 58  17:35 There will be two women grinding grain together; 59  one will be taken and the other left.”

17:36 [[EMPTY]] 60 

17:37 Then 61  the disciples 62  said 63  to him, “Where, 64  Lord?” He replied to them, “Where the dead body 65  is, there the vultures 66  will gather.” 67
