Luke 13 & 14 reveal conversations in which Jesus objected to the religious leaders concerning their understanding of the Sabbath laws. Furthermore, we find Jesus also challenging a few cherished social and theological assumptions.
1. Is the Sabbath controversy familiar to you? Why is it important today?
2. Jesus says that the Kingdom of God starts out small and insignificant like a seed and like leaven. Knowing this, how can you recognize when God is present and active in the world?
3. Why is humility such an important characteristic of a person’s spiritual life?
