22 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he
should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,
23 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and
entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
24 And they did not receive him, because his face was as
though he would go to Jerusalem.
25 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they
said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and
consume them, even as Elias did?
26 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said,
Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
27 For the Son of man is not
come to destroy men's lives, but to save them.
And they went to another village.
28 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a
certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou
29 And Joshua said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests;
but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
30 And he said unto another, Follow me.But he
said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
31 Joshua said unto him, Let
the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.
32 And another also said, Lord,
I will follow thee; but let me first go bid
them farewell, which are at home at my house.
33 And Joshua said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
