18. Teaching concerning the Entrance
into the Kingdom of God
22 And He journeyed throughout the cities and avillages, teaching and making His way toward bJerusalem.
23 And someone said to Him, Lord, are there only a few who are being asaved?
24 And He said to them, aStruggle to enter through the 1bnarrow door, because many, I tell you, will seek to enter, yet will not be 2able.
25 Once the Master of the house has risen and ashuts the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock on the door, saying, bLord, open to us, then He will answer and say to you, I do not know you, nor where you are from.
26 Then you will begin to say, We aate in Your presence and drank, and You taught in our streets.
27 And He will say, I tell you, I do not know where you are from. aGo away from Me, all you workers of unrighteousness.
28 There will be 1aweeping and gnashing of teeth there when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the 2kingdom of God, but you being cast boutside.
29 And they will come from the east and the west, and from the north and the south, and will recline at table in the akingdom of God.
30 And behold, there are some 1last who will be first, and there are some 2first who will be last.
