Context: In the town of Capernaum along the Sea of Galilee, Jesus teaches His disciples the principles by which His followers are to live in the church. They shall have the humility of a little child and forgiveness for one another. The Master has finished His discourse to His disciples, but:
Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
