Luke 13

Summary: Jesus makes a clear distinction between the powers of the world around Him and the affairs of His Kingdom, blessing those lost in tragedies, healing on the Sabbath, and denouncing a fruitless Israel and a prophet-killing Jerusalem.

Response: I have no idea who Jesus is referring to in the first story (though, after researching, it seems like some others don't either), but it sounded like they're trying to trap Jesus in theodicy (why good things happen to bad people). Jesus gives a non-answer, but really tries to get them to understand they need to worry about themselves, at least a bit. So, helping yes, but judging no. Sounds simple...
