Overcoming Evil With Good

51 When the days were approaching for (A) His ascension, He was determined (B) to go to Jerusalem; 52 and He sent messengers on ahead of Him, and they went and entered a village of the (C) Samaritans to make arrangements for Him.

53 But they did not receive Him, (D) because He was traveling toward Jerusalem.

54 When His disciples (E) James and John saw this, they said, "LORD, do You want us to (F) command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?"

55 But He turned and rebuked them, [and said, "You do not know what kind of spirit you are of;
56for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them."] And they went on to another village.

-Luke 9:51-56
