Luke 13:5


"But unless you repent, you too will all perish."

This verse is Jesus’ response to a terrible tragedy in which Pilate had killed several people.

They wanted Jesus to respond to the tragedy and this was his response.

Verse 4 says: "Do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! "

Jesus was saying that yes it is a tragedy that these men died without repenting, but people are dying all the time without repenting.

The greater tragedy is that many people have not repented and they will all perish forever. People are dying all day long, everyday - without repenting and turning to God. This is the greatest tragedy of the world.
