UR in two verses

Matthew 7:13 "Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it.
Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost .

The underlaying Greek word for the words highlighted in blue is:
622 apollumi {ap-ol'-loo-mee}
1) to destroy
1a) to put out of the way entirely, abolish, put an end to ruin
1b) render useless
1c) to kill
1d) to declare that one must be put to death
1e) metaph. to devote or give over to eternal misery in hell
1f) to perish, to be lost, ruined, destroyed
2) to destroy
2a) to lose

Many English meanings for one Greek word. Just pick one you like because it doesn't matter at all (in this case)
Jesus came to save those who already passed through the wide gate. Those who already were apollumi.

Luke 15:8 Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

The coin didn't make itself lost. It didn't even know it was lost. But still it's saved.
(whoops that is just one verse...)

Jeremiah 17:9 Crooked is the heart above all things, And it is incurable -- who doth know it?
Ezekiel 36:26 And I have given to you a new heart, And a new spirit I give in your midst, And I have turned aside the heart of stone out of your flesh, And I have given to you a heart of flesh.

Psalm 49:14  Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.

Psalm 49:15   But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.

they:  They refers to unholy persons.
Psalm 49:10-13  For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.  11 Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.  12 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.  13 This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

Meaning:  1) to ransom, redeem, rescue, deliver 1a) (Qal) to ransom 1b) (Niphal) to be ransomed 1c) (Hiphil) to allow one to be ransomed 1d) (Hophal) redeemed

Mark 2:27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:
Mark 2:28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

This one is less direct. It requires a bit more interpretation. IMO
The above two verses combined:
And He said unto them, The Son was made for man, and not man for the Son:

So Jesus isn't about we reaching for Father.
But Father reaching out for us.
And that's a large issue in the ET vs UR debate.

PS: The above is not intended disrespectful in any way toward Father, Son, HS...

ACVExodus 21
33 And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit and not cover it, and an ox or a donkey falls in it,
34 the owner of the pit shall make it good; he shall give money to the owner of it, and the dead [beast] shall be his.

The owner of the pit has to pay. Saying it the ox  walked in by it's own free will doesn't stick in God's courtroom.

God created everything. That includes:
- Serpents. (pit)
- Forbidden tree. (pit)
- Stupid people that eat from forbidden trees. (ox)

God dug a hole and didn't cover it. The stupid ox (Adam) fell in in the pit.
God should have put a fence around that tree. Or a bunch of angels with flaming swords.

The owner of that tree, God, is responsible. The owner has to pay the debt.

ACVActs 10:34 And having opened his mouth, Peter said, In truth, I am overwhelmed that God is not partial,
ACVActs 9:4 And after falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why do thou persecute me

On the road to Damascus, Jesus hater Saul was converted by force. He got saved without doing any seeking for Jesus at all.
Because God is no respector of persons He'll do the same with anyone if needed.
