Search The Scriptures — Study 43 — Luke 17:20-37
Study 43 of "Search The Scriptures” Is:
1. What does Jesus here teach concerning the nature of (a) the kingdom of God, and (b) the coming of the Son of man? What is the difference, and what the connection?
2. What aspects of His return does Jesus here emphasize? How will it find the world? And how should it find His own people?
Note. Verse 37. The figurative language (cf. Jb. 39:27-30) suggest that, ‘Where there is spiritual decay, judgement will come.’ Or, is it perhaps a proverbial saying meaning simply, ‘When the time is ripe, it will happen.’
