Discipleship Guide & Reflection Questions

  • Reading this week: Luke 19 and 20
  • Questions for Reflection/Discussion:

ENCOURAGE:

  • Discuss Jesus’ cryptic response in 20:25. What is he saying and why do you think it caused his audience to marvel?

CHALLENGE:

  • Consider the parable of the ten minas (19:11-27). How do you interpret the statement in v. 26? In what ways does this story challenge your own image of God?
  • The main point of the Triumphal Entry is that the crowds misunderstood something about Jesus and would quickly turn against Him as a result. What do you think they got wrong about Jesus and where do you see that same tendency in yourself?
  • Discuss how you’re progressing in the three challenges regarding our pursuit of missional hospitality: 1) inviting two people into your home that you’ve never hosted before 2) practicing the “Always Rule” of introducing yourself to and engaging neighbors, co-workers, etc. 3) Having a hospitable posture at our Sunday gatherings. Which is most difficult for you and why?
