Notes from 4 gospels

After complaining that my X thousand pages big Bible that I have at home is too big to carry around and also to read in my limited time that I have for books at home, my friend went, bought and gave me new testament in Slovak. So I accepted the gift and read the 4 gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and as usual kept notes.

First of all I find it really interesting that such an old book is still readable and what is more impressive that a lot (most?) of things apply today like they did 2000 years ago. It's like Harman wrote:

Science has changed the physical way we live so much that Julius Caesar or Columbus would not comprehend it. Unfortunately, it is equally certain that Jesus Christ would find mankind little changed. For the inner landscape in which he was interested and where he hoped to establish the Kingdom of God looks as barren and sterile, as chaotic and anarchic, as neglected and uncultivated as in his day.

Second the fact that at that time there we no dictaphones and it looks like a lot of the text was written only very late after it happen, still there are a lot of details and exact quotes. For sure back then common people had much better memory, because they had no other way to note things down only in their mind. They had different tools, skills and possibilities, still they core of what makes humans humans persisted.

Here are my raw notes without comments. I'll post the comments later.

What to do?

Mt 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Mt 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Mt 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
Mt 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Mt 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Mk 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
Mk 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
Mk 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Mk 12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
Mk 12:33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
Mk 12:34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

Lk 3:10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
Lk 3:11 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
Lk 3:12 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?
Lk 3:13 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
Lk 3:14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.

Lk 6:27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Lk 6:28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
Lk 6:29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
Lk 6:30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
Lk 6:31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
Lk 6:32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
Lk 6:33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
Lk 6:34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
Lk 6:35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
Lk 6:36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

Lk 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
Lk 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Lk 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
Lk 11:10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Lk 11:11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?
Lk 11:12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
Lk 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Lk 12:33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
Lk 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Lk 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
Lk 17:4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

What not to do?

Lk 4:12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Where to go?

Mt 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Mt 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

What good things to do for eternal life?

Mt 19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
Mt 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
Mt 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Mt 19:19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Mt 19:20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
Mt 19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
Mt 19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
Mt 19:23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Mt 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Lk 18:20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.
Lk 18:21 And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.
Lk 18:22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
Lk 18:23 And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.

Why parables?

Mt 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
Mt 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
Mt 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Lk 8:10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

Why is that we pay much more attention to the ones who fails, loose their way, need help or rescue?

Mt 18:12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
Mt 18:13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

Lk 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

Who belongs to the kingdom of God?

Mt 21:28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.
Mt 21:29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.
Mt 21:30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.
Mt 21:31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.
Mt 21:32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.

Mk 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

Lk 18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

Mk 12:27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.

Lk 20:38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.

Lk 6:20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
Lk 6:21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
Lk 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
Lk 6:23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
Lk 6:24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.
Lk 6:25 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
Lk 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

Lk 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

Lk 18:10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
Lk 18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
Lk 18:12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
Lk 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
Lk 18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Who doesn't belong to the kingdom of God?

Lk 11:39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.
Lk 11:40 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?
Lk 11:41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.
Lk 11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Lk 11:43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.
Lk 11:44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.
Lk 11:47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.
Lk 11:48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
Lk 11:49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
Lk 11:50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
Lk 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
Lk 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

What is astonishing?

Mk 1:22 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.

What is an impact of words of goodness?

Mk 4:14 The sower soweth the word.
Mk 4:15 And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.
Mk 4:16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;
Mk 4:17 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.
Mk 4:18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,
Mk 4:19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
Mk 4:20 And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.

How much to judge?

Mk 4:24 And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.

Jn 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
Jn 8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
Jn 8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
Jn 8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
Jn 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Should we keep the law?

Lk 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

Lk 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
Lk 16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

Jn 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Should he kept the law?

Lk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
Lk 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
Lk 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
Lk 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
Lk 24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

Why do people who really know someone can not honor him?

Mk 6:4 But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
Mk 6:5 And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
Mk 6:6 And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

Where does the evil come from?

Mk 7:15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
Mk 7:16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
Mk 7:17 And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.
Mk 7:18 And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
Mk 7:19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
Mk 7:20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
Mk 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
Mk 7:22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
Mk 7:23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

Why should we share? Why should we give?

Mk 8:17 And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?
Mk 8:18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?
Mk 8:19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.
Mk 8:20 And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.
Mk 8:21 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?

What to do with temptation?

Mk 9:43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
Mk 9:44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Mk 9:45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
Mk 9:46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Mk 9:47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
Mk 9:48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Lk 4:3 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of G od, command this stone that it be made bread.
Lk 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
Lk 4:5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
Lk 4:6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
Lk 4:7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
Lk 4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Lk 4:9 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:
Lk 4:10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
Lk 4:11 And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Lk 4:12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
Lk 4:13 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

How to become better?

Mk 9:49 For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
Mk 9:50 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

Who is great?

Mk 10:42 But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
Mk 10:43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:
Mk 10:44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
Mk 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Lk 22:27 For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.

Jn 13:5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
Jn 13:6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
Jn 13:7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
Jn 13:8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
Jn 13:9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
Jn 13:10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

Who is good?

Lk 18:19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

Who is blessed?

Jn 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

What will happen to the ones who will kill His son?

Mk 12:6 Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
Mk 12:7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be our's.
Mk 12:8 And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
Mk 12:9 What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.

Depart in peace?

Lk 2:29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
Lk 2:30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
Lk 2:31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
Lk 2:32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.

How to recognize good?

Lk 6:43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Lk 6:44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
Lk 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Should we hide?

Lk 8:16 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.
Lk 8:17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.

Who is my neighbour?

Lk 10:30 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.
Lk 10:31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
Lk 10:32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
Lk 10:33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
Lk 10:34 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.
Lk 10:35 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.
Lk 10:36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?
Lk 10:37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

What happens to a man after he gets rid of his unclean spirits?

Lk 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.
Lk 11:25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.
Lk 11:26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
Lk 11:27 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.
Lk 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

Why is there darkness in me?

Lk 11:34 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
Lk 11:35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
Lk 11:36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

Who is responsible?

Lk 12:48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

Who can follow?

Lk 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
Lk 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
Lk 14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
Lk 14:29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
Lk 14:30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
Lk 14:31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
Lk 14:32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
Lk 14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

Where is the kingdom of God?

Lk 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
Lk 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
