|Overview - Luke 12|
|1||Christ preaches to his apostles to avoid hypocrisy, and fearfulness in publishing his doctrine;|
|13||warns the people to beware of covetousness, by the parable of the rich man who set up greater barns.|
|22||We must not be over careful of earthly things,|
|31||but seek the kingdom of God;|
|35||be ready at a knock to open to our Lord whensoever he comes.|
|41||Christ's ministers are to see to their charges,|
|49||and look for persecution.|
|54||The people must take this time of grace;|
|57||because it is a fearful thing to die without reconciliation.|
Luke 12:3 (King James Version)
Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
- Job 24:14 Job 24:15 ; Ecclesiastes 10:12 Ecclesiastes 10:13 Ecclesiastes 10:20 ; Matthew 12:36 ; Jude 1:14 Jude 1:15
- The houses in Judea being flat-roofed, with a balustrade round about, were used for the purpose of taking the air, sleeping, and prayer, and, it seems, for announcing things in the most public manner. So among the Turks, a crier announces the hours of public worship from the minaret or tower of the mosque.
- Matthew 10:27
