Walter Chantry on Luke 13:34–35

Luke 13:34–35 34 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing! 35 "See! Your house is left to you desolate; and assuredly, I say to you, you shall not see Me until the time comes when you say, 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!'"

"This is love. This is divine love. Think about some of the implications of this statement for you. Jesus sees every sinner as a heedless chick in danger of destruction, willing that they be saved, eager to rush for their salvation, and to draw them under his wings." -- Chantry [min. 21:12–21:40]
