Luke 7:13

Jesus knew what they were thinking and asked, “Why are you thinking these things in your hearts?” Luke 5:22 After I read the verse above a few times a few observations and thoughts came to mind. First of all, Jesus knew what they were thinking. He knew! And the thinking was in their hearts not in their minds. Not a single translation of this verse uses minds instead of hearts.
