Search The Scriptures — Study 28 — Luke 10:25-42
Study 28 of "Search The Scriptures” Is:
1. Consider the summary of the law in verse 27. Is it an adequate summary? How does Jesus’ story guard against a misinterpretation of it? Who is your neighbour? And how can you prove yourself to be a neighbour?
2. Verse 38-42. Martha and Mary were concerned about different things. Which did Jesus consider the more important, and how did He solve the tension between them?
Notes. Verse 42. The ‘one thing’ may well be a pun, implying that there is no reason for an elaborate meal, and Mary, by choosing to listen to Jesus, has chosen the best dish.
