Sin  Lk.17.1-4 (Peraea)[ Lk.17.1-4 → ] - Mt.18.6-7, Mt.18.21-22, Mk.9.42

1HE SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES, 'Causes of stumbling are bound to arise; but woe betide the man through whom they come. 2It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone round his neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. 3Keep a watch on yourselves.

'If your brother wrongs you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. 4Even if he wrongs you seven times in a day and comes back to you seven times saying, "I am sorry", you are to forgive him.'

Faith  Lk.17.5-6 (borders of Samaria)

5The apostles said to the Lord, 'Increase our faith'; 6and the Lord replied, 'If you had faith no bigger even than a mustard-seed, you could say to this sycamore-tree, "Be rooted up and replanted in the sea", and it would at once obey you.

A servant's duty  Lk.17.7-10 (borders of Samaria)

7Suppose one of you has a servant ploughing or minding sheep. When he comes back from the fields, will the master say, "Come along at once and sit down"? 8Will he not rather say, "Prepare my supper, fasten your belt, and then wait on me while I have my meal; you can have yours afterwards"? 9Is he grateful to the servant for carrying out his orders? 10So with you: when you have carried out all your orders, you should say, "We are servants and deserve no credit; we have only done our duty." '

The Cleansing of Ten Lepers  Lk.17.11-19 (borders of Samaria)

11In the course of his journey to Jerusalem he was travelling through the borderlands of Samaria and Galilee. 12As he was entering a village he was met by ten men with leprosy. 13They stood some way off and called out to him, 'Jesus, Master, take pity on us.' 14When he saw them he said, 'Go and show yourselves to the priests'; and while they were on their way, they were made clean. 15One of them, finding himself cured, turned back praising God aloud. 16He threw himself down at Jesus's feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. 17At this Jesus said: 'Were not all ten cleansed? The other nine, where are they? 18Could none be found to come back and give praise to God except this foreigner?' 19And he said to the man, 'Stand up and go on your way; your faith has cured you.'

The Coming of the Kingdom  Lk.17.20-37 (borders of Samaria)[ Lk.17.20-37 → ] - Mt.24.23-28, Mt.24.37-41

20THE PHARISEES ASKED HIM, 'When will the kingdom of God come?' He said, 'You cannot tell by observation when the kingdom of God comes. 21There will be no saying, "Look, here it is!" or "there it is!"; for in fact the kingdom of God is among you.' Or: for in fact the kingdom of God is within you; or: for in fact the kingdom of God is within your grasp; or: for suddenly the kingdom of God will be among you.

22He said to the disciples, 'The time will come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. 23They will say to you, "Look! There!" and "Look! Here!" Do not go running off in pursuit. 24For like the lightning-flash that lights up the earth from end to end, will the Son of Man be when his day comes. 25But first he must endure much suffering and be repudiated by this generation.

The Unknown Day and Hour  Lk.17.26-30[ Lk.17.26-30 → ] - Mt.24.36-44, Mk.13.32-37, Lk.17.34-36

26'As things were in Noah's days, so will they be in the days of the Son of Man. 27They ate and drank and married, until the day that Noah went into the ark and the flood came and made an end of them all. 28As things were in Lot's days, also: they ate and drank; they bought and sold; they planted and built; 29but the day that Lot went out from Sodom, it rained fire and sulphur from the sky and made an end of them all? 30it will be like that on the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

31'On that day the man who is on the roof and his belongings in the house must not come down to pick them up; he, too, who is in the fields must not go back. 32Remember Lot's wife. 33Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it; and whoever loses it will save it, and live.

34'I tell you, on that night there will be two men in one bed: one will be taken, the other left.
35There will be two women together grinding corn: one will be taken, the other left.' 36Some manuscripts add: two men in the fields: one will be taken, the other left. 37When they heard this they asked, 'Where, Lord?' He said, 'Where the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.'
