Luke 9: 46 – 62

  1. Verses 43-56. Further failures of the disciples.
    Why did they find it so hard to understand Jesus’ teaching or to practice it?
    Do you find the same difficulties?
    How are they overcome?
    Cf. Phil. 2:3-8.
  2. 9:57-62.How would you describe the three different types of people deterred to here?
    Why was Jesus not satisfied with their response to his summons to follow him?
    Why was Jesus not satisfied with their response to his summons to follow him?
    Contrast Jesus’ own attitude (verse 51).

 

Note.  The Analysis shows a new section of the Gospel begins at verse 51.
But verses 51-56 are included in this study because they also record an example of failure on the part of the disciples.
