Study of the Book of Luke part 4 Chapters 9-11

Short Study of Book of Luke Chapters 9-11 Lesson Objective: To continue the study of Luke with emphasis on Chapters 9-11 Scripture: Various scriptures Chapter 9 9: 1-6 Christ sends out the 12 (cross reference Matthew 10: 1-15) When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, 2 and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. 3 He told them: “Take nothing for the journey—no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt. 4 Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town. 5 If people do not welcome you, leave their town and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.” 6 So they set out and went from village to village, proclaiming the good news and healing people everywhere. Q1- Why did Christ instruct them not to carry anything with them? Q2- What should we learn relative to not welcoming people into our house? Q3 Compare to the great commission Matthew 28: 19-20 9: 10-17 Christ feeds the 5000 15-17 But he said to his disciples, “Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each.” 15 The disciples did so, and everyone sat down. 16 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people. 17 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. Q1 Why do we pray before we eat? Q2 What is the significance of the bread that was left over 9: 18-21 Peter Declares That Jesus Is the Messiah Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, “Who do the crowds say I am?” 19 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life.”20 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “God’s Messiah.” Q1 Why do you think Peter answered as he did? Q2 How does this compare to other versions of the story in other gospels? ( Matthew 16:18) 9: 21-27 Christ foretells his death 9: 21-22 21 Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone. 22 And he said, “The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.” Q1. What does take up cross and deny themselves mean? Q2 9:25 Or what profit will it be unto him? all the honours, riches, and enjoyments of it will be of no use and service to him if he himself is lost What does this say about how we set our priorities? Q3 What does verse 27 mean? (Mark 9:1; Matthew 16:28) “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God.” Christ Transfiguration Luke 9: 33-35 And as the men were parting from him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah”—not knowing what he said. 34 As he was saying these things, a cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 35 And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One;[b] listen to him!” Q 1 Who went with Christ ? Q2 Who did the disciples see with Christ? Q3 What is the significance of the above verse relative to Christ and Jew’s perception of Christ? 9: 49-50 Christ admonishes to be careful whom we seek to condemn “Master,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us.” 50 “Do not stop him,” Jesus said, “for whoever is not against you is for you.” Q1 How should we respond when asked about other ministers? Chapter 10 10: 1-24 Christ sends out 72 10: 1-2 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two[a] others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. 2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Q1 Compare to Chapter 9 Q2 How does Christ respond to their reports when they returned? The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.” 18 He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. 20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” 10: 38-42 Christ At the Home of Martha and Mary 10: 41-42 41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one.[f] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Q1 What can we learn from these scriptures? Q1 Was Martha wrong to not sit at the feet of Christ like Mary? 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) 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?
