Jesus rejected by a Samaritan village
Table of Contents
The time for Jesus’ exodus from this world had drawn near, so he set off towards Jerusalem where all of this would occur. Along the way, a Samaritan village rejected Jesus because they didn’t want anything to do with anyone tied to Jerusalem. James and John, offended by this, called for fire from heaven to come and burn these Samaritans up, but Jesus quickly rebuked them. Jesus had come to save life, not take it, and he is on his way to Jerusalem to prove it in a big way.
A retelling from Luke 9:51-56.
