John’s Inquiry
(Luke 7:18–23)

1AND it came to pass, when Jesus had finished his injunctions to his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and preach in their cities.

2Then John, having heard in prison the works of Christ, sent two of his disciples, 3and said unto him, Art thou he that cometh, or should we expect another? 4And Jesus answering said unto them, Go, and tell John what things ye hear and see. 5The blind receive sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 6And blessed is he whosoever shall not be offended at me.

Jesus Testifies about John
(Luke 7:24–35)

7And when they were gone, Jesus began to speak to the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? 8But what went ye out to see? A man clothed in delicate garments? Lo! they who wear delicate garments are in the houses of kings. 9Yet what went ye out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and abundantly more than a prophet.

10For this is he of whom it is written, ?Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee.?

11Verily I say unto you, There hath not arisen, from those born of women, a greater than John the Baptist: yet he that is the least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. 12But from the days of John the Baptist unto the present, the kingdom of heaven is assaulted by violence, and the invaders forcibly seize upon it. 13For all the prophets and the law until John, foretold this. 14And if ye will receive it, this is Elias who was to come. 15He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

16But to whom shall I resemble this generation? it is like little boys sitting in the places of concourse, and calling to their companions, 17and saying, We have piped to you, and ye have not danced; we have sung mournful ditties to you, and ye have not beat your breasts. 18For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil: 19the Son of man is come eating and drinking, and they say, Behold, what a man! a glutton and a wine-bibber, a friend of publicans and sinners: though wisdom hath been justified by her children.

Woe to the Unrepentant
(Luke 10:13–16)

20Then began he to upbraid the cities in which the chief of his miracles had been wrought, because they repented not:

21Wo unto thee, Chorazin! wo unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the miracles which had been wrought in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, long since would they have repented in sack-cloth and ashes. 22Wherefore I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you. 23And thou, Capernaum, who hast been exalted unto heaven, shalt be cast down to hell: for if the miracles which have been wrought in thee had been done in Sodom, it had remained unto this day. 24Wherefore I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for thee.

Rest for the Weary
(Luke 10:21–24)

25At that time Jesus spake and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and the intelligent, and hast revealed them to babes: 26yes, Father! since such is thy good pleasure. 27All things are delivered up to me by my Father: and no person knoweth the Son but the Father; neither knoweth any person the Father but the Son, and he to whom the Son is pleased to reveal him.

28Come to me, all who labour hard, and sustain heavy burdens, and I will give you relief. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest to your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
