The Musts of Jesus

In reading through Luke’s gospel over the last couple of weeks I noticed a number of verses where it is said by Jesus or about Jesus what “must” happen with him or what he “must” do.

I found this interesting and have been pondering it since I noticed it. Here’s a list!

Luke 2:49
“Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”

Luke 4:43
But he said, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.”

Luke 13:33
In any case, I must keep going today and tomorrow and the next day–for surely no prophet can die outside Jerusalem!

Luke 17:25
But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.

Luke 19:5
When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.”

Luke 24:7
‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ “

Luke 24:44
He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”
