On Sunday we looked at Luke 13:1-9 where Jesus talks with a crowd about some current events, and then he tells them a parable. Perhaps you might read the verses again to remind yourself of the story.
Basically the two parts go like this:
Part 1 – In current events, people died, but not because they were more sinful. The fact of the matter is that we’ll all die, Jesus says, unless we repent.
Part 2 – In the parable, the owner will cut down dead fruit trees, unless the garderner’s fertilizer treatments cause it to bear fruit.
Do you see how these two sections are related?
