Chapter 17

In this chapter we have, I. Some particular discourses which Christ had with his disciples, in which he teaches them to take heed of giving offence, and to forgive the injuries done them (Luke 17:1-4), encourages them to pray for the increase of their faith (Luke 17:5, 6), and then teaches them humility, whatever service they had done for God, Luke 17:7-10. II. His cleansing ten lepers, and the thanks he had from one of them only, and he a Samaritan, Luke 17:11-19. III. His discourse with his disciples, upon occasion of an enquiry of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should appear, Luke 17:20-37.
