Luke 9:46-56

ESV 46 An argument arose among them as to which of them was the greatest. MSG 46 They started arguing over which of them would be most famous. ESV 47 But Jesus, knowing the reasoning of their hearts, took a child and put him by his side MSG 47 When Jesus realized how much this mattered to them, he brought a child to his side. ESV 48 and said to them, "Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me. For he who is least among you all is the one who is great." MSG 48 "Whoever accepts this child as if the child were me, accepts me," he said. "And whoever accepts me, accepts the One who sent me. You become great by accepting, not asserting. Your spirit, not your size, makes the difference." ESV 49 John answered, "Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he does not follow with us." MSG 49 John spoke up, "Master, we saw a man using your name to expel demons and we stopped him because he wasn't of our group." ESV 50 But Jesus said to him, "Do not stop him, for the one who is not against you is for you." MSG 50 Jesus said, "Don't stop him. If he's not an enemy, he's an ally." ESV 51 When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. MSG 51 When it came close to the time for his Ascension, he gathered up his courage and steeled himself for the journey to Jerusalem. ESV 52 And he sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of the Samaritans, to make preparations for him. MSG 52 He sent messengers on ahead. They came to a Samaritan village to make arrangements for his hospitality. ESV 53 But the people did not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem. MSG 53 But when the Samaritans learned that his destination was Jerusalem, they refused hospitality. ESV 54 And when his disciples James and John saw it, they said, "Lord, do you want us to tell fire to come down from heaven and consume them?" MSG 54 When the disciples James and John learned of it, they said, "Master, do you want us to call a bolt of lightning down out of the sky and incinerate them?" ESV 55 But he turned and rebuked them. MSG 55 Jesus turned on them: "Of course not!" ESV 56 And they went on to another village. MSG 56 And they traveled on to another village.
