Luke 4:31-44

  1. What two facts about Jesus particularly impressed the people in the synagogue?
    Note also the even more discerning testimony of the demons (verses 34, 41).
    Why did Jesus silence this?
  2. This passage illustrates the busyness and urgency of Jesus’ mission (see especially verse 43).
    Why then did he retire to a lonely place (verse 42)?
    Cf., in this Gospel, 5:16; 6:12; 9:18, 28; 11:1; etc.
    What can we learn from this example?
