- They have power over demons, Jesus gave them authority over the enemy, and the enemy cannot harm them. (Is this also true for us?) But this is not the greatest gift, the greatest is that their names are written in heaven. (Is this also true for us? Because that's beautiful and a verse about God's love for us as individuals rather than collectively.)

- This is the same as Matthew 11, although the verses about rest are not here, alas.

- Reading this growing up, the priests and Levites were viewed as hypocrites, Pharisees, bad guys. Reading it now and viewing them more as holy or good makes their actions more painful - and also brings home the amazing kindness of the Samaritan. It also can remind us that we're just as likely to neglect others.

- It occurs to me now that Martha and Mary were showing the hospitality asked of people by Jesus earlier in this chapter. ...It also occurs to me that while I'd probably still get a ton of things wrong, I'd write more accurate lady!Jesus fiction now.
