And it came to pass, when the time had come that He should be received up, He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem,
and He sent messengers before His face. And they went and entered into a village of the Samaritans to make ready for Him.
But they did not receive Him, because His face was set as though He would go to Jerusalem.
And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, wilt Thou that we command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, even as Elijah did?"
But He turned and rebuked them and said, "Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
For the Son of Man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them." And they went to another village.
And it came to pass that, as they went along the way, a certain man said unto Him, "Lord, I will follow Thee whithersoever Thou goest."
And Jesus said unto him, "Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man hath nowhere to lay His head."
And He said unto another, "Follow Me." But he said, "Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father."
Jesus said unto him, "Let the dead bury their dead, but go thou and preach the Kingdom of God."
And another also said, "Lord, I will follow Thee, but let me first go bid those farewell who are at home at my house."
And Jesus said unto him, "No man, having put his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God."
