At that time some people were there who told Jesus that Pilaten had killed some people from Galilee while they were worshiping. He mixed their blood with the blood of the animals they were sacrificing to God.
Jesus answered, "Do you think this happened to them because they were more sinful than all others from Galilee?
No, I tell you. But unless you change your hearts and lives, you will be destroyed as they were!
What about those eighteen people who died when the tower of Siloam fell on them? Do you think they were more sinful than all the others who live in Jerusalem?
No, I tell you. But unless you change your hearts and lives, you will all be destroyed too!"
Jesus told this story: "A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard. He came looking for some fruit on the tree, but he found none.
