Luke 9:52 Commentary - Expository Notes with Practical Observations on the New Testament

Our Saviour was now going from Galilee to Jerusalem, and being to pass through a village of Samaria, he sent messengers before him to prepare entertainment for him. The Son of God, who was heir of all things, sends to, and sues for a lodging in, a Samaritan cottage.

Oh blessed Saviour, how can we be abased enough for thee, who thus neglected thyself fo us! It was thy pleasure to appear, not in the figure of a prince, but in the form of a servant, yet the people in the Samaritan village would not receive him!

Strange! To hear the Son of God sue for a lodging, and be denied; but the reason was, the difference of religion which was between the Jews and the Samaritans: the Jews worshipped at the temple of their own, built upon Mount Gerizim. Upon the building of this new temple there arose so great a feud between the Jews and the Samaritans, and in the process of time such an implacable hatred, that they would not show a common civility to one another. A Samaritan's bread to a Jew, was no better than swine's flesh; they would rather thirst than drink a draught of Samaritan water.

Hence we learn, that no enmity is so desperate as that which arises from matters of religion.
