Christ preacheth repentance upon the punishment of the Galilaeans, and others.
Luke 13:1 Ther were present at the same season, certayne men that shewed him of the Galyleans, whose bloude Pylate had myngled with theyr awne sacryfyce. Luke 13:2 And Iesus answered, and sayde vnto them: Suppose ye that these. Galyleans were greater synners then all the other Galyleans, because they suffred suche punysshment? Luke 13:3 I tell you naye: but except ye repent: ye shall all lyke wyse perysshe. Luke 13:4 Or those .xviij. vpon which the toure in Syloe fell, and slewe them, thynke ye, that they were synners aboue all men that dwelt in Ierusalem? Luke 13:5 I tell you naye: But excepte ye repent, ye all shall lyke wyse perysshe.
The fruitless fig tree may not stand.
Luke 13:6 He tolde also this similitude: a certayne man had a fygge tree planted in his vineyarde & he came and sought frute theron, and founde none. Luke 13:7 Then sayde he to the dresser of his vineyarde: beholde, this thre yeare haue I come and sought frute in this fygge tree, and fynde none: cut it doune: why combreth it the ground? Luke 13:8 and he answered & sayd vnto him: Lorde, let it alone this yeare also, tyll I dygge rounde aboute it, and donge it, Luke 13:9 to se whether it will beare frute: and yf it beare not then, after that shalt þu cut it doune. Luke 13:10 And he taught in one of their synagoges on the Saboth dayes.
He healeth the crooked woman:
Luke 13:11 And beholde, ther was a woman, which had a sprete of infirmite .xviij. yeares: and was bowed together, and coulde in no wyse lifte vp her heade. Luke 13:12 When Iesus sawe her, he called her to him, and sayde vnto her woman, thou art deliuered from thy disease. Luke 13:13 And he layde his handes on her, and immediatly, she was made strayght, and glorified God. Luke 13:14 And the ruler of the synagoge answered with indignacion (because that Iesus had healed on the Saboth daye) and sayde vnto the people. Ther are syxe dayes in which men ought to worke, in them come, that ye maye be healed, and not on the Saboth daye. Luke 13:15 But the Lorde answered him and sayde: Thou ypocryte, doth not each one of you on the Saboth daye lowse his oxe or his asse from the stall, and leade him to the water? Luke 13:16 And ought not this daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bounde (lo .xviij. yeares) be lowsed from this bonde on the Saboth daye? Luke 13:17 And when he thus sayde, all hys aduersaries were ashamed, and all the people reioysed on all the excellent dedes, that were done by him.
sheweth the powerful working of the Word in the hearts of his chosen, by the parable of the grain of mustard seed, and of leaven:
Luke 13:18 Then sayde he: what is the kyngdome of God like? or wherto shall I compare it? Luke 13:19 It is like a grayne of mustarde seede, which a man toke, and sowed in his garden: and it grewe and wexed a greate tree, and the foules of the ayer made nestes in the braunches of it. Luke 13:20 And agayne he sayde: wher vnto shall I lyken the kyngdome of God? Luke 13:21 it is like leuen, which a woman toke, and hyd in thre peckes of meele, tyll all was leuened. Luke 13:22 And he went thorow all cities and townes, teachynge, and iorneyinge towardes Ierusalem. Luke 13:23 Then sayde one vnto him: Lorde, are ther feaw that be saued? And he sayde vnto him:

Luke 13:24 stryue to enter in at þe strayte gate; for many (I saye vnto you) will seke to enter in, and shall not be able. Luke 13:25 When the good man of the house is rysen vp, and hath shutt to the dore, and ye beginne to stonde without, and to knocke at the dore sayinge: Lorde, Lord, open vnto vs, and he answer and saye vnto you. (I knowe you not whence ye are) Luke 13:26 Then shall ye begyn to saye: we haue eaten & dronken in thy presence, & thou hast taught in oure stretes. Luke 13:27 And he shall saye: I tell you, I knowe you not whence ye are: departe from me all ye þt worke iniquite. Luke 13:28 There shalbe wepinge & gnasihinge of teth, when ye shall se Abraham and Isaac and Iacob, and all the Prophetes in þe kyngdome of God, and ye youre selues thrust out. Luke 13:29 And they shall come from the east and from the west, and from þe north and from the south, and shall syt downe in þe kyngdome of God. Luke 13:30 And beholde, there are last, which shalbe fyrst. And ther are fyrst, which shalbe last.

Luke 13:31 The same daye came there certayne of the Pharises, and sayde vnto him. get the out of the waye, and departe hence: for Herode will kyl the. Luke 13:32 And he sayde vnto them: Go ye, and tell that foxe, beholde, I cast out deuyls and heale the people to daye and to morowe, and the thyrde daye I make an ende. Luke 13:33 Neuerthelesse, I must walke to daye and to morow, and the daye folowyng: for it cannot be that a Prophet perisshe eny other where, saue at Ierusalem. Luke 13:34 O Ierusalem, Ierusalem, which killest Prophetes, and stonest them that are sent vnto the: how ofte wolde I haue gathered thy children together, as a byrde doth gather her yonge vnder her wynges, and ye wolde not? Luke 13:35 youre habitacion is left vnto you desolate. I tell you, ye shall not se me, vntyll the tyme come that ye shall saye blessed is he that commeth in the name of the Lorde.
