Luke 11-13

11 - Jesus teaches how to pray, and to pray persistently. He casts out Satan, gives Jonah as a sign of judgment on those rejecting Him, and rebukes Pharisees for emphasizing less important external things, adding many regulations to the law, and approving of persecuting the prophets while claiming they themselves would not have done so in the past.

12 - Jesus warns against the hypocrisy of the Pharisees, the deceitfulness of riches, and the anxieties of life. "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." So stay faithful and watchful for His return.

13 - Disaster victims aren't worse sinners. Disasters are warnings to us all to repent, as God patiently waits for it. Jesus heals a woman on the Sabbath, crippled for 18 years. The way into the kingdom is narrow; many who think they are in will be surprised at the last day. Jesus will complete His mission on the 3rd day in Jerusalem, but that city will be desolate for her treatment of Him.
