Luke 17:11-19 ESV: [11] On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. [12] And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance [13] and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” [14] When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. [15] Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; [16] and he fell on his face at Jesus' feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. [17] Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? [18] Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” [19] And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”

Jesus expresses his mercy in countless ways, but all those are intended to point to his ultimate mercy, displayed in his death.

  • Jesus expresses his mercy in numerous ways.
  • Jesus’ general expressions of mercy point to His ultimate mercy.  
  • Jesus’ ultimate mercy is missed by many.
  • Jesus’ ultimate mercy when received through faith saves us.
