On the way to Jerusalem (Lk 13:22-13:22)

“Jesus went through

One town

And village,

After another.

He was teaching,

As he made progress

On his way

Toward Jerusalem.”

 

Καὶ διεπορεύετο κατὰ πόλεις καὶ κώμας διδάσκων καὶ πορείαν ποιούμενος εἰς Ἱεροσόλυμα.

 

Luke uniquely has this statement about Jesus, but statements in the other gospels indicate something similar.  Luke said that Jesus went through (Καὶ διεπορεύετο) one town (κατὰ πόλεις) and village after another (καὶ κώμας).  He was teaching (διδάσκων), as he was making progress (καὶ πορείαν ποιούμενος) on his way toward Jerusalem (εἰς Ἱεροσόλυμα).  Although Jesus went through various little towns and villages, he was always teaching about the kingdom of God.  However, his main goal was to go to Jerusalem.  Perhaps, he was not in Samaritan territory anymore.  Do you have a goal in mind that you are trying to reach?
