A study of the book of Luke, chapter twenty-two verse one through thirty-one was recorded December 1, 2019 with Pastor Aaron Lapp.
Sermon Discussion Questions for Luke 22:1-31
1. Passover was an occasion for the Jews to remember what God had done for them by delivering them from the oppressive hands of the Egyptians. What reminds you of what God has done for you?
2. Satan was able to exercise great influence over Judas to the point that his love of money overcame his love of Jesus. According to James 4:7 how can you protect yourself from Satan’s influence?
3. The High Priest valued Jesus’ life as the same as a servant, cheap- 30 pieces of silver. Think about something you consider cheap, how much do you value it, how well do you treat it?
4. Now examine your relationship with Jesus. How much time to you spend with Him, how much do you value His word?
5. Jesus gave Peter and John some specific and strange instructions to find the upper room. Do you find that you sometimes question God’s ways as if you know a better, more logical way? Why do we do this?
6. According to the Sunday message, why did Jesus desire to eat “this” Passover meal with His disciples? (verse 15)
7. Take a look at John 13:21 – What was Jesus’ emotional state at the thought of being betrayed by one of His disciples?
8. Why do you think He was feeling this way? What does this tell us about Jesus?
9. Why do you think that even by this time the disciples were still arguing over which of them should be considered the greatest?
10. Jesus points out that this world’s opinion of who is greatest is opposite of God’s kingdom. How do you think we got there?
11. Satan wanted to sift Peter like wheat. On Sunday we learned that meant he wanted to “separate” Peter by “shaking him up”. How did he ultimately do this?
12. Jesus does not save Peter from the sifting but rather prays for him to persevere through it and come out the other side stronger in faith. Think of a time when you have felt sifted by Satan. Has your experience been similar to that of Peter’s?
13. Important: Through this study, what is the Holy Spirit challenging you to do this week? How do you need to obey this?
