Christ preacheth repentance upon the punishment of the Galilaeans, and others.
Luke 13:1 There were presente at the same season, that shewed hym of the Galileans, whose bloud Pilate mengled with theyr owne sacrifice. Luke 13:2 And Iesus aunswered, and sayde vnto them: Suppose ye that these Galileans were greater synnes then all the other Galileans, because they suffred suche punishment? Luke 13:3 I tell you naye: but excepte ye repente, ye shall all lykewyse peryshe. Luke 13:4 Or those .xviij. vpon whome the towre in Siloe fell, & slewe them, thinke ye that they were sinners aboue all men that dwell in Hierusalem? Luke 13:5 I tell you naye: But excepte ye repente, ye shal al lykewyse peryshe.

Luke 13:24 stryue with your selues to enter in at þe strayte gate: For manye I saye vnto you wyl seke to enter in, & shal not be able.

Luke 13:29 And they shall come from the easte & from the west, and from the northe, and from the southe, and shall sit doune in the kyngdom of God.
