Jesus Heals Ten Men With Leprosy
11 Now on his way to Jerusalem,(A) Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee.(B) 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy[a](C) met him. They stood at a distance(D) 13 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master,(E) have pity on us!”
14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.”(F) And as they went, they were cleansed.
17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”(I)
The Coming of the Kingdom of God(J)
20 Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come,(K) Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, 21 nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’(L) because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”[b]
22 Then he said to his disciples, “The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man,(M) but you will not see it.(N) 23 People will tell you, ‘There he is!’ or ‘Here he is!’ Do not go running off after them.(O) 24 For the Son of Man in his day[c] will be like the lightning,(P) which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other. 25 But first he must suffer many things(Q) and be rejected(R) by this generation.(S)
26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah,(T) so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28 “It was the same in the days of Lot.(U) People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
