Luke 9:51-62 51 As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. 52 And he sent messengers on ahead, who went into a Samaritan village to get things ready for him; 53 but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem. 54 When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, äóìLord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them[a]?äó 55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them. 56 Then he and his disciples went to another village. 57 As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, äóìI will follow you wherever you go.äó 58 Jesus replied, äóìFoxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.äó 59 He said to another man, äóìFollow me.äó But he replied, äóìLord, first let me go and bury my father.äó 60 Jesus said to him, äóìLet the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.äó 61 Still another said, äóìI will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family.äó 62 Jesus replied, äóìNo one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.äó
