The time grew near for Jesus to be taken up to heaven. So he made up his mind to go to Jerusalem.
He sent messengers on ahead. They went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him.
But the people there did not welcome Jesus. That was because he was heading for Jerusalem.
The disciples James and John saw this. They asked, "Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to destroy them?"
But Jesus turned and commanded them not to do it.
They went on to another village.
