The Evangeliad (24:27-29*)


Section 24:27-29 (corresponding to Luke 13:31-33)

As they proceeded, some Pharisees came;
They hailed the disciples, called Jesus by name.
"Get out of this region, go someplace else--
Herod is seeking your death for himself."

"Go tell that fox, Herod," Jesus replied,
"Today and tomorrow I'll be near his side;
I expel demons one day, heal the next,
On the third I become perfected through death.

So here, today, I continue my way;
Tomorrow, too, I go on my way;
For it can't be that a prophet should die
Except beneath Jerusalem's skies."
