In this chapter we have, I. The parable of the
importunate widow, designed to teach us fervency in prayer,
ver. 1-8. II. The parable
of the Pharisee and publican, designed to teach us humility, and
humiliation for sin, in prayer, ver.
9-14. III. Christ's favour to little children that were
brought to him, ver.
15-17. IV. The trial of a rich man that had a mind to
follow Christ, whether he loved better Christ or his riches; his
coming short upon that trial; and Christ's discourse with his
disciples upon that occasion, ver.
18-30. V. Christ's foretelling his own death and
sufferings, ver. 31-34.
VI. His restoring sight to a blind man, ver. 35-43. And these four passages we had
