Luke 9:51-56; 10:22-24 (Gospel, Image)

51
Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem,
52
and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him.
53
But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem.
54
And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”
55
But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of.
56
For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them. And they went to another village.
22
All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.
23
Then He turned to His disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see;
24
for I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear what you hear, and have not heard it.
