A Sabbath Controversy

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:1 -

One Sabbath, when he went in to eat[fn] at the house of one of the leading Pharisees, they were watching him closely.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:2 -

There in front of him was a man whose body was swollen with fluid.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:3 -

In response, Jesus asked the law experts and the Pharisees, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath or not? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:4 -

But they kept silent. He took the man, healed him, and sent him away.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:5 -

And to them, he said, “Which of you whose son or ox falls into a well, will not immediately pull him out on the Sabbath day? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:6 -

They could find no answer to these things.

Teachings on Humility

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:7 -

He told a parable to those who were invited, when he noticed how they would choose the best places for themselves:

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:8 -

“When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, don’t recline at the best place, because a more distinguished person than you may have been invited by your host.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:9 -

“The one who invited both of you may come and say to you, ‘Give your place to this man,’ and then in humiliation, you will proceed to take the lowest place.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:10 -

“But when you are invited, go and recline in the lowest place, so that when the one who invited you comes, he will say to you, ‘Friend, move up higher.’ You will then be honored in the presence of all the other guests.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:11 -

“For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:12 -

He also said to the one who had invited him, “When you give a lunch or a dinner, don’t invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbors, because they might invite you back, and you would be repaid.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:13 -

“On the contrary, when you host a banquet, invite those who are poor, maimed, lame, or blind.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:14 -

“And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”

The Parable of the Large Banquet

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:15 -

When one of those who reclined at the table with him heard these things, he said to him, “Blessed is the one who will eat bread in the kingdom of God! ”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:16 -

Then he told him: “A man was giving a large banquet and invited many.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:17 -

“At the time of the banquet, he sent his servant to tell those who were invited, ‘Come, because everything is now ready.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:18 -

“But without exception[fn] they all began to make excuses. The first one said to him, ‘I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it. I ask you to excuse me.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:19 -

“Another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m going to try them out. I ask you to excuse me.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:20 -

“And another said, ‘I just got married, and therefore I’m unable to come.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:21 -

“So the servant came back and reported these things to his master. Then in anger, the master of the house told his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the city, and bring in here the poor, maimed, blind, and lame.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:22 -

“ ‘Master,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, and there’s still room.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:23 -

“Then the master told the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges and make them come in, so that my house may be filled.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:24 -

“For I tell you, not one of those people who were invited will enjoy my banquet.’ ”

The Cost of Following Jesus

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:25 -

Now great crowds were traveling with him. So he turned and said to them:

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:26 -

“If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters ​— ​yes, and even his own life ​— ​he cannot be my disciple.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:27 -

“Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:28 -

“For which of you, wanting to build a tower, doesn’t first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it?

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:29 -

“Otherwise, after he has laid the foundation and cannot finish it, all the onlookers will begin to ridicule him,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:30 -

“saying, ‘This man started to build and wasn’t able to finish.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:31 -

“Or what king, going to war against another king, will not first sit down and decide if he is able with ten thousand to oppose the one who comes against him with twenty thousand?

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:32 -

“If not, while the other is still far off, he sends a delegation and asks for terms of peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:33 -

“In the same way, therefore, every one of you who does not renounce[fn] all his possessions cannot be my disciple.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:34 -

“Now, salt is good, but if salt should lose its taste, how will it be made salty?

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 14:35 -

“It isn’t fit for the soil or for the manure pile; they throw it out. Let anyone who has ears to hear listen.”
