“I tell you!
It will be given you.
You will find it.
Will be opened
Κἀγὼ ὑμῖν λέγω, αἰτεῖτε, καὶ δοθήσεται ὑμῖν· ζητεῖτε, καὶ εὑρήσετε· κρούετε, καὶ ἀνοιγήσεται ὑμῖν·
Luke indicated that Jesus told them with a solemn proclamation (Κἀγὼ ὑμῖν λέγω) that they should only ask (αἰτεῖτε), and then it would be given to them (καὶ δοθήσεται ὑμῖν). They were to search (ζητεῖτε), and they would find it (καὶ εὑρήσετε). Just knock (κρούετε), and the door would be opened for them (καὶ ἀνοιγήσεται ὑμῖν). Matthew, chapter 7:7, has a similar saying of Jesus, almost word for word, indicating a common Q source. Jesus told them to ask (Αἰτεῖτε), and they would get it (καὶ δοθήσεται ὑμῖν). Seek (ζητεῖτε), and they would find it (καὶ εὑρήσετε). Knock (κρούετε), and it would be opened (καὶ ἀνοιγήσεται ὑμῖν). Everything seemed so easy. All they had to do was request things from the Father and he would grant it. Do you make simple requests to God the Father?
