- Do not appreciate the slave parable for many reasons.

- The kingdom of God is within you - does that mean that we have to build it ourselves? I think given other verses (esp. about the parousia/resurrection/renewal of all things) it's more likely to mean that the kingdom starts within us with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

- It's weird that Jesus seems to be associating the destruction of Jerusalem with himself.

- 'Where the corpse is, there the vultures will gather' could refer to Jerusalem since he was crucified there.

- The part about people losing their lives keeping it is encouraging in the context of a disaster he kind of makes seem God-given - it indicates there's hope and life and love beyond.

- The instructions - don't turn back of fetch your belongings - can be taken as warning to run.
