Faithful in Looking for the King, the Kingdom and Its Consummation (17:11-18:8)

Here Luke's attention turns to the program of God's rule, the kingdom. A miracle highlights Jesus' central role and reminds us that we should honor God. Then in a long discourse Jesus declares the kingdom's availability and speaks of the events associated with its future decisive manifestation. The unit closes with a parable that calls the saints to pray for divine justice and not lose heart, for God will vindicate them. Everything Jesus teaches here serves to reassure saints like Theophilus.
