Psalm: 66

Meditation

Luke: ”O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I stay with you?” (v. 41) To whom is this rhetorical question directed? I think Jesus is speaking to the disciples whom He had sent out (early in chapter 9) “with all power and authority to drive out all demons…” (v. 9:1) If Jesus is questioning faith it must be that of the disciples. Then later, just to show how little they had learned, these same disciples are clamoring to be “the greatest” in the kingdom. I’m no longer surprised they were afraid to ask Him about His prediction of His own death.

Gospel: Luke 9:37-50

New Testament: Acts 28:17-31

Old Testament: Genesis 1:14-31
