Today’s chapter of Luke is full of Jesus teaching, and we also read two chapters pf Joshua.
Luke 13. Jesus kept telling the religious Jews “Unless you repent you all perish.” The fig tree is a symbol of Israel, and until then God has been patient with the barren Fig Tree. Moving on, like Jesus so often did, a woman was healed on a Sabbath, which made the ruler of the Synagogue angry. Jesus took issue with that, asking why can you save animals on Sabbath but not people? He then told the parable of faith like the Mustard Seed, the Leaven and the narrow Gate and explained why not all will enter. Finally Jesus lamented over Jerusalem.
Joshua 9. Without consulting the LORD, the leaders of Israel made a treaty with the Gibeonites, a very bad idea.
Joshua 10 speaks of further battles, in the battle with the Amorites the sun stood still for a full day. After the LORD gave Israel the victory, the Amorite Kings were executed, followed by the conquest of the Southland.
