Matthew 17:24-18:4
 
Matthew 17:24-18:4
24
When they had come to Capernaum, those who received the temple tax came to Peter and said, “Does your Teacher not pay the temple tax?”
25
He said, “Yes.” And when he had come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth take customs or taxes, from their sons or from strangers?”
26
Peter said to Him, “From strangers.” Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are free.
27
Nevertheless, lest we offend them, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you.
1
At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
2
Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them,
3
and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
4
Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Luke 9:51-56; 10:22-24
51
Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem,
52
and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him.
53
But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem.
54
And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”
55
But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of.
56
For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them. And they went to another village.
22
All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.
23
Then He turned to His disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see;
24
for I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear what you hear, and have not heard it.

Colossians 1:12-18
12
giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.
13
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
14
in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
15
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
16
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.
17
And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.
18
And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
