Search The Scriptures – Study 14 – Luke 5:27-6:11
Study 14 of "SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES” IS:
1. These verses record four encounters with the Scribes and Pharisees. What were the ground of their growing opposition to Jesus? And what were the truths and the principles which (as His answers reveal) determined the actions of Jesus?
2. 5:36-39. What happens when formal religion encounters the new life which Jesus brings? How do the incidents in today’s passage illustrate the truth of these verses? Cf. 1 Sa. 15:22; Heb. 10:8,9.
Notes. 6:1. This was allowed on other days (Dt. 23:25), but was regarded by the Scribes as work, and therefore prohibited on the Sabbath.
