Bible: Luke 9:51-56

Rejection in Samaria

9:51 Now when 1  the days drew near 2  for him to be taken up, 3  Jesus 4  set out resolutely 5  to go to Jerusalem. 6  9:52 He 7  sent messengers on ahead of him. 8  As they went along, 9  they entered a Samaritan village to make things ready in advance 10  for him, 9:53 but the villagers 11  refused to welcome 12  him, because he was determined to go to Jerusalem. 13  9:54 Now when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do you want us to call fire to come down from heaven and consume 14  them? 15  9:55 But Jesus 16  turned and rebuked them, 17  9:56 and they went on to another village.
