Short Study of the Book of Luke Chapter 11-12

Short Study of the Book of Luke Chapter 11-12 Chapter 11 11: 2-4 The Lord’s Prayer And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. 3 Give us day by day our daily bread. 4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Q1. Is this the entire prayer? Q2 What is a doxology Q2 1 Chronicles 29: 10-13 (written by David) Q3 What does lead us not into temptation me? 11: 5-12 Ask and ye shall receive . 8. I say to you, he may not get up and give him bread because he is a friend. Yet, if he keeps on asking, he will get up and give him as much as he needs. Q1 Where else is this subject discussed in the Bible? ( Luke 18: 1-8) Q2. Can you give an example of persistence 11: 24-26 An Unclean Spirit Returns 24 “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ 25 And when he comes, he finds it swept and put in order. 26 Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first.” Q1. What can we learn from this passage? Q2. What common idiom do we use to say the same? 11:29-32 People seeking signs And while the crowds were thickly gathered together, He began to say, “This is an evil generation. It seeks a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah [h]the prophet. 30 For as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so also the Son of Man will be to this generation. Q1 What are the signs in these days? Q2 Why are some people always seeking signs? Chapter 12 Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: “Be[a] on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 3 What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. Q1. What is hypocrisy? Q2. Do we all run the risk of being a hypocrite? The parable of the rich fool Luke 12: 13-21 Luke 12: 13-14 13 Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” 14 Jesus replied, “Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?” 15 Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” Q1. What does this tell us about saving wealth? Q2. How much should someone save Q3. How does this apply to Job: 1 20-22. Then Job stood up, tore his robe, and shaved his head. He fell to the ground and worshiped, 21saying: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away. Blessed be the name of the LORD.” 22In all this, Job did not sin or charge God with wrongdoing Do not worry Luke : 12: 22-32 12: 22-23 22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Q1. Do you ever think what is most important in your life? Q2. What makes you worry or lose sleep? 12: 33-34 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Q1 Where is similar subject discussed in the Bible Q2. What items (treasures) can cause us a problem in our lives Watchfulness Luke 35-47 41 Peter asked, “Lord, are you telling this parable to us, or to everyone?” 47 “The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows. 48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.
