As Yeshuawas saying this, a woman called out from the crowd, “Happy is the woman who was pregnant with you and breast-fed you.”

As more and more people came crowding around, Yeshuasaid, “This people group is an evil group! You search for a sign, but the only sign you will get is the sign of Jonah! In the same way that Jonah was a
sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this people group.Luke 11:29-32
“The Queen of the South will rise at the Judgment with this group of people and condemn them - she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon’s wisdom, and now someone more important than Solomon is here. The Ninevites will stand up with at the Judgment with this people group and condemn them - they changed their minds when Jonah preached, and now someone more important than Jonah is here.
“No one lights a portable lamp and hides it somewhere, or puts it under a bucket! Instead they put it on a lamp stand, so it shines light on everyone. Your eye is the lamp of your whole body. When your eyes are generous then your whole body is full of light tooLuke 11:33-36
But when they’re stingy, your body is full of darkness. So be careful that the light in you is not dark. If your whole body is full of light, and none of it is dark, then it
will be completely lit up like when a beam of light shines on you!”
Meanwhile, such a vast number of people had gathered that they were all trampling over each other. Yeshuastarted to turn his attention to his disciples, and first of all said, “Avoid the yeast of the Pharisees – by this I mean their overly critical, hair splitting, pedantic religious behavior.
What you have said in the dark will be heard in broad daylight, and what you have whispered in someone’s ear in a storeroom will be shouted from the rooftops.
“My friends, don’t be afraid of those who kill the body but after that can’t do any more. I’ll show you who you should be afraid of - be afraid of him, who, after he can kill your body, has the power to throw you into the Garbage Pit Gehenna! Yes, I’m telling you, be afraid of him!Luke 12:4-7
“Aren’t five sparrows sold for two coins? But God doesn’t even forget one of them. In fact he knows how many hairs you have on your head! So don’t be afraid – you’re worth more than lots of sparrows.
Then someone in the crowd asked, “Teacher, please tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.”
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Beware of all types of greedy grasping behavior - your life is not made up by a lot of possessions!”
He told them the following example. “A certain rich person’s farm produced a good crop. He thought to himself, ‘What am I to do? I don’t have anywhere to store my crops!’ “Then he said, ‘I know what I’ll do. I’ll pull down my barns and build bigger ones, and I’ll store all my grain and other possessions there.Luke 12:16-21
Then I can say to myself, “You have enough good things stored up to last for ages. Take it easy - eat, drink, and party on.”’
“But God said to him, ‘You silly fool! Tonight you’re going to die. And then who’s going to get everything that you’ve stored up!’ “And this will be the case with anyone who stores up things for their
own use but is not wealthy in God’s way.”Luke 12:16-21
Then Yeshuasaid to his disciples, “This is why I tell you not to worry about your life - what you’re going to eat - or about your body - what you’re going to wear. Life is more important than food, and the body
is more important than clothes. Think about the ravens.Luke 12:22-26
They don’t plant or harvest crops, and they don’t have a bank or a barn, and God feeds them. And look how much more valuable you are than birds!
“Think about how the wild lilies grow. They don’t work hard or make clothes. But not even Solomon for all his wealth was dressed as well as one of these! As this is how God clothes the grass of the fields, which is here today and burnt up tomorrow, how more will he clothe you, you people with little faith?Luke 12:27-31
And don’t worry about what you’re going to eat or drink and don’t be unsettled. The people who worship other gods run
around worrying about this sort of thing, but your Father knows that you
need them. Instead, seek out God’s Realm as a priority, and all these things will be given to you!
“Don’t be afraid, my little group, because your Father is pleased to give you the Realm. Sell your possessions and give charitable gifts. Make for yourselves money bags that never wear out, a bank in the heavenly places that never runs out, where there are no thieves to steal it or clothesmoths to eat it. In fact, your thoughts will be where your bank is!Luke 12:32-34
“Be dressed ready to go and keep your lights on, just like people who were waiting for their boss to return from a wedding reception. The minute he comes and knocks, they can open the door for him. Those slave servants are well off if the boss finds them on duty when he arrives.Luke 12:35-40
He will dress up in servant’s clothes and will invite them to sit down to dinner and he will serve them. Those slave servants are well off if the boss finds them ready - even if he comes in the middle of the night or the early hours of the morning.
“But understand this - if the owner of the house had known what time the thief was coming, he wouldn’t have let his house be broken into. You too must be ready, because the Human Being will come at the time you least expect.”
That slave servant will be doing well if the boss finds him doing the right thing when he returns. In fact, he will put him in charge of everything he owns. But what if the slave servant thinks, ‘The boss is taking a long time getting back,’
and then beats up the male and female servants and gobbles up his food and gets drunk! The boss will turn up unexpectedly, on a day he doesn’t expect, and at a time he’s not aware of. He’ll chop him in half and send him to the same fate as the unbelievers!
“A slave servant who knows what the boss wants and doesn’t get ready, or doesn’t do what the boss wants, will be well and truly beaten up. But someone who doesn’t know and does some wrong things will be
beaten less severely. Much will be demanded from those who have been given much. Much more will be asked from those who have been entrusted with much.
“I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it had already started! But I have a baptism I must go to, and how distressed I am until it has been done! Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? Not at all, I tell you - not peace, but division.Luke 12:49-53
From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. They will be divided - father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-inlaw against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.
He said to the crowd, “When you see a cloud coming up in the west, you immediately say, ‘It’s going to rain’- and it does! When the south wind comes up, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot’ - and it is!
“Why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right? As you and your opponent are going to the magistrate, try hard to settle your dispute on the way, otherwise your opponent might drag you off to the judge.
At that time there were a few people present who told Yeshua about the Galileans whose blood Pilate mixed with their sacrifices, by killing them while they were sacrificing!
What about the eighteen people who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them - do you think they were more guilty than everyone else living in Jerusalem? No way! But if you don’t change your minds, you will die too.”
Then he told them this example: “A certain person had a fig tree planted in the vineyard, and went to find fruit on it but there wasn’t any. So the person said to the gardener, ‘For the last three years I’ve been looking for fruit on this fig tree and I still haven’t found any! Cut it down!
“Sir, leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it,” the gardener answered. “Then perhaps it will have figs on it fruit next year. If it doesn’t, you can cut it down.’”
One Sabbath day Yeshuawas teaching in one of the synagogues. There was a woman present who’d had a spirit of sickness for eighteen years. She was bent over double and there was no way she could straighten up. When Yeshuasaw her, he called her over and said, “Lady, you are freed from your sickness.” Then he laid hands on her. Immediately she straightened up and kept praising God.Luke 13:10-13
The ruler of the synagogue was irritated because Yeshuahad healed on the Sabbath day. He addressed the crowd, “There are six days on which work should be done! So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath!”Luke 13:14-16
“You overly critical, hair splitting, pedantic religious types!” the Lord exclaimed. “You can’t tell me that each of you doesn’t untie your ox on donkey from the stable on the Sabbath day and lead it out for water! Then shouldn’t this descendant of Abraham, whom Adversary well and truly
has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free from what bound her on the Sabbath day?”
When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were thrilled with all the incredible things he was doing.
Yeshuawent through the cities and villages, teaching while he made his way to Jerusalem. Someone asked, “Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?”
Once the owner of the house has got up and locked the door, you will be left outside knocking and pleading, saying, ‘Sir, please open the door for us!’
“But he will answer, ‘I haven’t got a clue who you are or where you came from! Get lost, you pack of crooks!’ “Then you will be in great sorrow, pain and anguish when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in God’s Realm - but you yourselves are kicked out. People will come from the east, west, north and south, and will take their seats at the feast in God’s Realm.
And I can tell you this: some of the ones who now are last will be first and some of the ones who now are first will be last.”
At that time some Pharisees came up to Yeshuaand said, “You’d better get away from here and go somewhere else - Herod wants to kill you!” He answered, “Go and tell that fox, ‘I am to drive out demons and perform instant divine healings today and tomorrow, and on the third day I am to be completed.’Luke 13:31-35
“In any case, I must keep going today and tomorrow and the next day – Jerusalem’s the place where all the prophets die! Jerusalem, Jerusalem! You’ve killed the prophets and stoned the ones I sent to you!
I’ve often wanted to gather up your people, just like a hen gathers up her chicks under her wings - but you wouldn’t let me! Your temple will be deserted!
You won’t see me again until you say, ‘Happy is the one who is coming in the Name of the Lord.’”
One Sabbath, Yeshuawent to have lunch at the house of one of the leading Pharisees, and he was being watched closely. There right in front of him was a person who was suffering from excess swelling in the
body. Yeshuaasked the experts in the Law, and the Pharisees, “Is it legal to heal someone on the Sabbath or not?”Luke 14:1-6
But they didn’t say a word. So Yeshuagrabbed the person, instantly divinely healed him, and let him go. Then he asked, “If your child or ox falls into a well on a Sabbath day, wouldn’t you’d pull it out at once?”
