1 After these things the LORD appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. 2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. 3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. 5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. 6 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. 7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. 8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: 9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, 11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. 13 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. 15 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. 16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. 17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. 18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. 19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. 21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. 22 All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him. 23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: 24 For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. 25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? 27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. 28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. 29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? 30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise. 38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word. 40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. 41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: 42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

1 Deena E = "I agree Sara, and in addition to having someone to counsel, sympathize and help we all need accountability. In Matthew 10, this same illustration of Jesus commissioning 70 disciplines He said he was sending them out as sheep among wolves. We all have a little bit of both (sheep and wolf) in us and everyone is susceptible to stumbling. Having an accountability partner is so imperative. "
2 Sara Di Diego = "The reasoning behind sending them two by two was so each person could have a counsellor, sympathizer, and a helper right next to them.  Although Jesus is all three, one must emulate these traits so there is a little bit of him on Earth always.Work Cited:http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/peoples-new-testament/luke/10.html"
3 Sara Di Diego = "The reason why this harvest metaphor is used is to show that without labourers, the harvest would be lost and useless.  This is another way of looking at the shepherd metaphor, in which without shepherds (apostles/God) scattered sheep are lost to the shepherd.  However, this harvest metaphor emphasizes the uselessness of a person without God.Work Cited:http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/peoples-new-testament/matthew/9.html#Mt9_37"
4 Sara Di Diego = "Jewish greetings at the time were very formal, hypocritical and took a lot of time.  Thus, Luke writes that it is more important to spread the word than to be polite to a certain group's standards.  It is better to do what you believe is right than to conform to foolish and/or insincere standards.Work Cited:http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/peoples-new-testament/luke/10.html"
5 Sara Di Diego = "This phrase is only used twice in the Bible (the other place it can be found is Matthew 11:21). Chorazin was a place, although no one knows exactly where it was, what it was about, and so on.  It might be located somewhere in the ruins of Kerazeh, two miles from the ruins of Tell-Hum (or Capernaum).Work Cited:http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/peoples-new-testament/matthew/11.html#Mt11_21"
6 Sara Di Diego = "Tyre and Sidon were cities mentioned in both the Old and New Testament.  They are located in modern day Lebanon.  Tyre means "sour" in Arabic, but also comes from the root word of "rock" since it is on a rock island.  Sidon (or Saida today) was named after Canaan's first born son, and means "fishing" in Arabic. Work Cited: http://www.biblearchaeology.org/post/2010/01/26/the-biblical-cities-of-tyre-and-sidon.aspx#Article"

8 Cary W = "As Jesus was passing His work, anointing and power on to His followers, that they too now could heal the sick and deliver the oppressed from evil spirits, He also issued a severe warning to any who encountered the work of the Spirit of God.  That they receive His followers in this outpouring or face a worse fate than condemned nations of the past.Yet to remind His followers to remain grateful and humble was also necessary.  Don't rejoice that you have such authority, but rather that your names are written in Heaven.  Keep the focus on the gift of life and grace at work in you!"
9 Cary W = "Fill up all of your senses with God by his Spirit; set your heart to praise and love Him in each big or small task; have your souls most cherished desire to have His company and friendship.  Then there will be no law you can break, nothing to grieve or lose."
10 Sara Di Diego = "If one wanted to go from Jerusalem to Jericho, it was literally a descent during the whole journey.  The distance height wise from Jerusalem to Jericho was 3,000 feet over 18 miles.Work Cited:http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/peoples-new-testament/luke/10.html"
11 Cary W = "In our busy culture, we so need to be reminded of our tendency for outward busyness, accompanied by worry and strife.  Mary demonstrates pure worship and devotion to God, not seeking to gain or accomplish, but rather just pour out her heart and affections to her beloved King!"
