Chiasmus and Concentric Structure of divided by 9

Nine centers in divided in nine structures are "Jesus is presented in the temple" (no. 9, Lk. 2:22-40), "Jesus choose the twelve apostles" (no. 25, Lk. 6:12-19), "They may look but not see" (no. 41, Lk. 8:9-10), "Jesus again fortells his death" (no. 57, Lk. 9:44-45), "Jesus denounces Pharisees and Lawyers" (no. 73, Lk. 11:37-54), "The lament over Jerusalem" (no. 89, Lk. 13:31-35), "A third time Jesus foretells his death and resurrection" (no. 105, Lk. 18:31-34), "The coming of the Son of Man" (no. 121, Lk. 21:25-28), and "Jesus led away" (no. 137, Lk. 23:26-32). Nos. 9, 57 and 105 are prophecy about the Passion, no. 25 is prophecy about betrayal, nos. 73 and 89 is perseciton against prophets, and nos. 121 and 137 is eschatological prophecy. The whole structure has the Passion, the resurrection and eschatology as common themes. No. 41 doesn't include direct description about eschatology or resurrection, but the phrase "the secrets of the kingdom of God"(Lk. 8:10) would indicates those.
