Jesus heals the ten lepers in Luke 17 video discussion

The Sunday lectionary reading for Trinity 17 in Year C is Luke 17.11-19, the story of Jesus healing ten lepers, only one of whom returns to thank him.

The story has a surprising turn at the end—and our video discussion has a surprise in its ending too! Come and join the discussion between Ian and James and be surprised!

  1. Just a thought: 10 lepers and 10 tribes of the Northern Kingdom?

    (Also, I note that there are now two books on the mantlepiece!)

    • Ten denotes full power in my book. Abraham sent ten camels, etc.. It seem that the ten tribes had a very strong hand on the face of it. Corruption from within slowly destroyed it. Looks like the ten lepers mirror the northern kingdom. It would be interesting to see which tribe(s) returned to the fold during the return from exile. There could be more to this . If so, so what?
