The Lord of the Sabbath

October 31, 2021 Speaker: Dan Wong Series: Luke

Passage: Luke 6:1–6:5

Click here for the sermon discussion questions or see them listed below. We highly encourage you to listen, think, and talk about the sermon. These are questions you can reflect on by yourself, with your family, or with your small group.

Discussion Questions 

  1. What was God’s original intention for the Sabbath? How does observing the Sabbath show a watching world that God’s people love and obey Him?
  2. Why do you think the Jews in Old Testament times, and even Christians today fail to recognize the importance of God’s intention and design for the Sabbath?  How did the Pharisees try to “fix” this problem?
  3. Although the Law is good and following rules is necessary for a well functioning society, how can an overemphasis on “rule-following” be detrimental?  On the flip side, how can an overemphasis of freedom resulting in the disregard of all rule-following (antinomianism) be just as detrimental?  
  4. How did Jesus use the Word of God to answer the false accusations of the Pharisees? (See 1 Samuel 21)  Why is the Word of God the best defense for a believing life?
  5. How does Jesus, the Lord of the Sabbath, give rest to those who are weary and heavy laden?  (See Matthew 11:28-30)
