Jesus as a Child

Luke 2:41-51

READ LUKE 2:41-51 If Jesus were a kid today, what would he be like? Think of all the things you do as a kid—would he do those things, too? Mary and Joseph didn’t understand what Jesus meant in v. 49: what did he mean? [He meant that his life had a purpose, and that even at that point, he needed to be preparing himself for the life—and ultimately, the death—he would experience.] In v. 51, it says Jesus was obedient; why is that important? [It shows us that Jesus honored God’s commands, including the one to obey your parents, no matter what.] Jesus asked questions of people older and wiser than himself: do you have any questions for your parents? Ask anything!

Jesus Called Disciples

Luke 5:1-11 • June 3, 2020 • Brennan Westerman

READ LUKE 5:1-11 - Why did Jesus tell them where to find fish? Why perform a miracle here? - In v.8, what was Simon Peter's response? Why did he respond like this? - What did Jesus mean that they would be "catching people"? - What are things we learn about Jesus in this passage? - What are things we learn about following Jesus in this passage? BONUS QUESTION Matthew and Mark report this happening by the Sea of Galilee, but Luke says it's at the Sea of Gennesaret. Who's right?
