Bible: Luke 17:20-25

The Coming of the Kingdom

17:20 Now at one point 1  the Pharisees 2  asked Jesus 3  when the kingdom of God 4  was coming, so he answered, “The kingdom of God is not coming with signs 5  to be observed, 17:21 nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is 6  in your midst.” 7 

The Coming of the Son of Man

17:22 Then 8  he said to the disciples, “The days are coming when you will desire to see one of the days 9  of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. 17:23 Then people 10  will say to you, ‘Look, there he is!’ 11  or ‘Look, here he is!’ Do not go out or chase after them. 12  17:24 For just like the lightning flashes 13  and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. 14  17:25 But first he must 15  suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.
