_______________________________________________________________

Icebreaker: When you were in high school, what did it take to get into the “popular” crowd? What guaranteed that you would be out of it?
  • Read Luke 18:1-8. Since Roman judges were noted for their openness to bribes, what weapon did this poor woman have? What is Jesus’ point in this parable? How is God like and unlike the judge in this story? When you pray, are you more likely to give up quickly or stick with it?
  • Read Luke 18:9-14. If Jesus told this story today, what group of people would be the “Pharisee”? The “tax collector”? When have you been like the Pharisee? Like the tax collector? How does this parable relate to the previous parable about persistence? What do each of the stories teach us about God? About ourselves?
  • Read Luke 18:15-17. If you were one of the disciples, how would you feel about people bringing their babies to Jesus? Why did Jesus welcome children so adamantly? What was strange about that? What do you think Jesus meant when he said that we all must become like little children in order to enter the Kingdom of God?
  • How can we pray for each other?

Icebreaker: What event or accomplishment in your life did you have to wait a very long time for? How did you feel when it finally arrived? When it was over?

  • Read Luke 17:20-21. In answering the Pharisees’ question, what does Jesus say about the kingdom—as to when, how, or where it is? Does he view the kingdom as an inward spiritual reality within people? Or an outward, social manifestation among them? Or is it something else?

  • Read Luke 17:22-28. What do you think Jesus means when he says, “The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it” (v. 22)? How will those days be like the days of Noah or Lot? What is the connection?

  • Read Luke 17:29-37. In light of Jesus’ unexpected return, how are his followers to live? Verse 37 was a common proverb, implying that something will happen in its proper time. Why does Jesus answer this way?

  • How often do you think about Jesus’ return? How would you live your life differently if you were more aware of his return each day?

  • How can we pray for one another?

Icebreaker: Who was one of your role models while you were growing up?

  • Read Luke 17:1-10. What might be an example of what Jesus is talking about in verse 1? How could you live out verses 3-4 without reinforcing someone’s bad behavior? Why do you think the disciples asked Jesus, “Increase our faith” (verse 5)? What did Jesus mean by his response (verse 6)?
  • Which aspect of being a disciple of Jesus do you have the most trouble with? How would changing that affect other areas of your life as a disciple?
  • Read Luke 17:11-19. What would it have felt like to be a leper? What would being healed mean for them? How do you think the nine lepers rationalized not going back to thank Jesus? What is significant about the one being a Samaritan?
  • Why is gratitude important to Jesus? How you express gratitude to others? To God?
  • How can we pray for each other?
