Luke 17

“The Coming Kingdom”: Jesus warns of the danger of acting as a stumbling block. He heals 10 lepers, but only one (a Samaritan no less!) returns to say “thank you.” When questioned about the imminence of the kingdom, he disabuses worldly ideas through foretelling Jerusalem’s destruction, while instructing his disciples to be ready for his second coming.
