Samaritans

In cataloging some of Jesus thoughts about Gentiles – here is a good one – pay attention to the footnotes I left in —

As the time drew near for him to ascend to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.  He sent messengers ahead to a Samaritan village to prepare for his arrival.  But the people of the village did not welcome Jesus because he was on his way to Jerusalem.  When James and John saw this, they said to Jesus, “Lord, should we call down fire from heaven to burn them up[a]?”  But Jesus turned and rebuked them.[b]  So they went on to another village. — Luke 9:51-56

Footnotes:

  1. 9:54Some manuscripts add as Elijah did.
  2. 9:55Some manuscripts add an expanded conclusion to verse 55 and an additional sentence in verse 56: And he said, “You don’t realize what your hearts are like. 56 For the Son of Man has not come to destroy people’s lives, but to save them.”
