Chiasmus and Concentric Structure of divided by 5

Five centers in divided in five structures are "The law and the prophets" (no. 15, Lk. 4:16-30), "Jesus heals two blind men" (no. 44, Lk. 8:19-21), "The tradition of the elders" (no. 73, Lk. 11:37-54), "Jesus cleanses the temple" (no. 102, Lk. 18:9-14), and "Jesus before the high priest" (no. 131, Lk. 22:47-53). The common theme of these is the person who doesn't understand the teaching of the LORD. Moreover, the beginning of the structure 5-3, and structure 5-4 are pericopes about going to Jerusalem. Therefore, these structures may be related to the travel to Jerusalem.
