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.
