Luke 13:1; Now on the same occasion there were some present who reported to Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. Luke 13:2; And Jesus said to them, "Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans because they suffered this fate? Luke 13:3; "I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Luke 13:4; "Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them were worse culprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem? Luke 13:5 "I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish." This is quite a compelling passage for several reasons. First who were these Galileans "whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices" ? I could find no other scriptures that seems to explain this. At the very least it seems some Galileans were still performing sacrifices. Because they were performing these sacrifices, it seems they suffered some bad fate. Jesus says... do you think those Galileans were any worse than other Galileans? Hmmm.. what happens to these Galileans? What was their fate? Maybe a clue is in the next verse. Unless you repent.. you will likewise (also) perish. It seems these Galileans who were sacrificing perished. That must have been their fate. Who killed them? Perhaps it was Pilate.... "who mixed their blood" with their sacrifices. There are some churches and Christians who teach that repentance is not required for salvation. Some preach that we are saved by grace alone, and nothing is required at all on our part. Some have even gone as far as to say... Jesus never preached repentance.... Hmmm. Well He did in the verses above. What is repentance? Even this is not agreed on by everyone. Some say it is simply "thinking differently" or "hating sin". But I personally would disagree. At some point, we actually have to stop doing some sins. Jesus makes reference to a "tower of Siloam" that fell upon some people... they "perished" because of this. Again... I could find no other scripture about this tower of Siloam. But the bottom line here is... Jesus says unless we repent... we will also perish. Perish.. die... Hmmm... aren't we all going to die someday anyway? Maybe Jesus meant die in another way, not just physical death.
