B. On Way to YerushalayimJerusalem (Chapters 10-18)

1. The Seventy commissioned (Lk 10:1-12)

1Now after these events, the Lord appointed seventy other talmidimdisciples, and sent them on in pairs ahead of Him into every town and place where He was about to go. 2He told them, “The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore to ADONAI of the harvest, that He may send out laborers into His harvest. 3Go your ways, but hinnehBehold: Pay attention to this, because it’s very important!, I’m sending you out like lambs among wolves. 4Don’t carry a money belt, a bag, or sandals, and don’t stop to visit or chat along the way. 5Whenever you enter a house, first say, ‘Shalom[5] to this house.’ 6If a Bar-Shalom[6] is there, your shalom will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. 7Remain in that same house, eating and drinking the things they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages;[7] don’t keep moving from house to house. 8Whatever city you enter, if they welcome you, eat whatever you are served.[8] 9Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The Kingdom of God[GN] has come near to you.’ 10But whatever city you enter, if they don’t welcome you, go out into its streets and say, 11Even the dust of your city that clings to our feet, we wipe it off in protest against you.[11] Even so, be sure of this, that the Kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 12I tell you, it will be more tolerable in the Day of Judgment for S'domSodom than for that city.

2. Indifference denounced (Lk 10:13-24) (Mt 11:20-24)

13“Woe to you, KorazinChorazin! Woe to you, Beit-TzaidahBethsaida! For if the miracles done in you been done in TzorTyre and TzidonSidon, they would have repented in sackcloth and ashes long ago. 14But it will be more tolerable for TzorTyre and TzorTyre in the Judgment than for you. 15And as for you, K'far-NachumCapernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? No, you will be brought down to Sh'ol![15] 16Whoever listens to you listens to Me, and whoever rejects you rejects Me. Whoever rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me.

17The seventy returned full of joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name!”

18He said to them, “I watched HaSatanSatan, the Adversary fall from heaven like a lightning flash.[18] 19HinnehBehold: Pay attention to this, because it’s very important!, I have given you authority to trample down serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. Nothing will in any way hurt you.[19] 20Nevertheless, don’t be glad that the spirits submit to you, be glad that your names are written in heaven.

21At that moment Yeshua was filled with joy in Ruach HaKodeshthe Holy Spirit, and said, “I praise You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and understanding, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, this was well-pleasing to You.

22All things have been handed over 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 anyone to whom the Son desires to reveal Him.

23Turning to the talmidim, He said privately, “Blessed are the eyes which see the things that you see, 24for I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see the things you see, and they didn’t see them, and to hear the things you hear, and they didn’t hear them.

3. A Torah expert questions the Son of Man (Lk 10:25-29) (Mt 22:34-40; Mk 12:28-34)

25An expert in Torah stood up and tried to trap Him, saying, “Rabbi, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”[25]

26He said to him, “What is written in the Torah? How do you read it?”

27He answered, “You shall love ADONAI your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind;[27a] and your neighbor as yourself.”[27a]

28He said to him, “You have answered correctly. Do this, and you will live.”[28]

29But he, desiring to justify himself, asked Yeshua, “Who is my neighbor?”[29]

4. Parable of the Good Samaritan (Lk 10:30-37)

30Yeshua answered, “There was a man who was going down from YerushalayimJerusalem to YerichoJericho, and he was mugged by robbers who stripped him and beat him, and left, leaving him half dead. 31By coincidence, a cohenpriest was going down that road; but when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32Likewise, a LeviLevite also came to the place and saw him, and passed by on the other side.[32] 33But a man from ShomronSamaria who was traveling that road came upon him; and when he saw him, he was moved with compassion. 34so he came up to him, put oil and wine on his wounds, and bandaged them. He set him on his own donkey, took him to an inn, and took care of him. 35The next day as he was leaving he took out two denarii[35] and gave them to the host, and said to him, ‘Take care of him. Whatever you spend beyond that, I will repay you when I return.’ 36Now which of these three do you think seemed to be a neighbor to him who fell among the robbers?

37He said, “The man who showed mercy on him.

Then Yeshua said to him, “You go and do as he did.”

5. At home with MyriamMary and Marta (Lk 10:38-42)

38As they traveled along, Yeshua came to a village where a woman named MartaMartha welcomed Him into her home. 39She had a sister named MyriamMary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to Him teach. 40But Marta was distracted with her preparations, and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister left me to do all the serving alone? Tell her to help me.”

41Yeshua answered her, “Marta, Marta, you are worried and bothered by so many things, 42but only one thing is actually necessary. Myriam has made the right choice, and it will not be taken away from her.[42]

Chapter 11


  5. Shalom, ~wlX, peace, but much, much more. Shalom includes everything necessary for total personal well-being: completeness, soundness, welfare, safety, health, prosperity, quiet, tranquillity, contentment, friendship of human relationships and with God (especially in covenant relationship), absence of warfare. [RETURN]

  6. Bar-Shalom, a son of peace. In Hebrew as Bar-whatever is someone who strongly exhibits those characteristics. So a Bar-Shalom, a son of peace, is someone who is a peaceful person and who seeks peace (shalom, above). [RETURN]

  7. Those who are employed in full-time ministry deserve to earn their support through that ministry. Congregations who pay their pastors less than the living wage of a person with equivalent education and experience are anathema! [RETURN]

  8. This is not an endorsement of the erroneous teaching that HaShem’s food instructions have been abolished. These talmidim were being sent to Jewish communities to be hosted in Jewish homes in which kosher diets were observed. The instruction is to be happy with whatever the host family offered. [RETURN]

11. I personally think that when a Believer encounters false teaching in any assembly, this is the action that he/she should take. But if you do, there will be social cosequences. [RETURN]

15. Sh'ol (Sheol) is not hell. The word is used as a metaphor for the grave, and speaks of the dwelling place of the dead.

My personal belief [this is only my opinion, so please feel free to disagree] is that before Yeshua’s Resurrection it was the resting place of the dead to await their resurrection (Luke 16:19-31). I believe that between His death and Resurrection, Yeshua went into Sh'ol and announced to the dead, both the righteous and unrighteous, that the work of redemption had been completed (1Pet 3:19). I further believe that He then transported the righteous dead directly through time and space to the Olam Habah (Eph 4:8), leaving only the unrighteous dead in Sh'ol to await the Great White Throne Judgment (Rev 20:11). [RETURN]

18. Isaiah 14:12-15 [RETURN]

19. This offer of physical protection was good only for the duration of this mission. As long as you are actively conducting a specific mission that HaShem has ordained for you, you cannot be killed until His intent for that mission has been accomplished. Upon completion, however, the greatest reward that you can possibly receive is to be gathered into His presence. [RETURN]

25. Attempting to get Him to speak against Torah. [RETURN]

27a. Deuteronomy 6:5 [RETURN]

27b. Leviticus 19:18 [RETURN]

28. The sum of the Torah is this: Love what HaShem loves and hate what HaShem hates. All the rest is commentary. [RETURN]

29. Again, this was not an honest discussion; the entire conversation was designed to trap Yeshua into speaking out against Torah. It is amazing how the vast majority among the Church claim that Yeshua abolished Torah, when in fact He never uttered a single teaching that in any way contradicted Torah! [RETURN]

32. If a cohenpriest or LeviLevite came into contact with a corpse he would become ritually “unclean” until he waited seven days and performed a purification ritual (Num 19:11-14). If he had found the man was dead, of if the man died while being attending to, then the cohen or Levi would have missed out on the important speaking engagement or conference or whatever it was that he was in such a hurry to get to. [RETURN]

35. A denarius was a day’s wages. [RETURN]

42. The lesson to be learned here is that we need to be careful to avoid letting “busy work” interfere with quality time with the Lord. [RETURN]
