Search The Scriptures — Study 35 — Luke 13:1-17
Study 35 of "Search The Scriptures” Is:
1. Trace the connection of thought between verse 1-5 and the parable of verses 6-9. In the light of the parable, what is meant by ‘repent’ (verses 3,5)? Cf. 3:8a.
2. Verses 10-17. What, in Jesus’ view, was wrong with the attitude of the ruler of the synagogue? Compare his reaction to Jesus’ miracle with that of the woman and the crowd. What made the difference?
Note. Verse 1. The reference is to some massacre in the Temple, typical of Pilate’s brutality.
