Luke

Luke 17:11-19
11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”

14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.

17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”

When one of the men who had leprosy saw that he was healed, came back / turned back, glorifying and praising and honoring God with a loud voice.

He threw himself / lay face down at the feet of Jesus and thanked Him over and over. He was a Samaritan.

Jesus: “Were not all 10 of you cleansed? Where are the other 9? Has no one returned / Was there no one found to return and to give thanks and praise to God except this foreigner?”

Jesus to him: “Rise / Get up and go on your way; your faith, your personal trust in Me and your confidence in God’s power has made you well / has restored you to health.”

Luke 14:1-6
1 Now it happened, as He went into the house of one of the rulers of the Pharisees to eat bread on the Sabbath, that they watched Him closely. 2 And behold, there was a certain man before Him who had dropsy. 3 And Jesus, answering, spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?”

4 But they kept silent. And He took him and healed him, and let him go. 5 Then He answered them, saying, “Which of you, having a donkey or an ox that has fallen into a pit, will not immediately pull him out on the Sabbath day?” 6 And they could not answer Him regarding these things.


One Sabbath, when Jesus went to eat / went for a meal at the house of a prominent Pharisee / at the house of one of the ruling Pharisees, they were watching Him closely and carefully hoping to entrap Him.

In front of Jesus, there was a man suffering from abnormal swelling of his body / dropsy, extreme swelling.

Jesus to the Pharisees and experts in the law / lawyers: “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath or not?”

But they remained silent.

So taking hold of the man, Jesus healed him and sent him on his way.

Luke 9:37-43
37 Now it happened on the next day, when they had come down from the mountain, that a great multitude met Him. 38 Suddenly a man from the multitude cried out, saying, “Teacher, I implore You, look on my son, for he is my only child. 39 And behold, a spirit seizes him, and he suddenly cries out; it convulses him so that he foams at the mouth; and it departs from him with great difficulty, bruising him. 40 So I implored Your disciples to cast it out, but they could not.”

41 Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you and bear with you? Bring your son here.” 42 And as he was still coming, the demon threw him down and convulsed him. Then Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, healed the child, and gave him back to his father.

43 And they were all amazed at the majesty of God.


Jesus rebuked the impure / unclean spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father.

They were all amazed, practically overwhelmed at the evidence of the greatness of God and His majesty and His wondrous work.

Luke 9:10-11
10 And the apostles, when they had returned, told Him all that they had done. Then He took them and went aside privately into a deserted place belonging to the city called Bethsaida. 11 But when the multitudes knew it, they followed Him; and He received them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who had need of healing.


When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus / they told Jesus what / all that they had done.

Then Jesus took the apostles with Him and they withdrew by themselves / they privately withdrew across the Jordan to a town / to a city called Bethsaida.

But when the crowds learned about it, they followed Him.

Jesus welcomed them and spoke to them / began talking to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing / healing those who needed to be healed.
