Strength in Numbers

>> Readings

18 October 2018

“The Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them out ahead of him, two by two, to all the towns and places he himself was to visit” (Luke 10).

Jesus chooses twelve apostles in Luke 9. Take this as symbolic of the hierarchy.

Jesus chooses seventy-two in Luke 10. Take this as symbolic of the laity.

Notice what happens next. Jesus sends us out “two-by-two.” We are to travel “hand-in-hand.”

We do well to remember Luke 9 and Luke 10 when the Lord next sends us out ahead of him.

There is strength in numbers.
