Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:3 - I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:4 - Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem?

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:5 - I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:6 - Then he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it but did not find any.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:7 - So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:8 - “ ‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:9 - If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:18 - Then Jesus asked, “What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to?

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:20 - Again he asked, “What shall I compare the kingdom of God to?

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:21 - It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds[fn] of flour until it worked all through the dough.”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:25 - Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Sir, open the door for us.’ “But he will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:26 - “Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:27 - “But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:28 - “There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:29 - People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:33 - In any case, I must press on today and tomorrow and the next day—for surely no prophet can die outside Jerusalem!

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 13:34 - “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.
