There are two parts of this portion of Luke’s Gospel that we will study in this lesson. The first is The Parable of the Tenants. Through this parable Jesus exposed the wicked schemes of the religious elite and how they would kill Him. The second is the continuation of Jesus confronting these hypocrites after they tried to trap Jesus. How Jesus responded to their attacks was simple, yet profound. This is a very interesting lesson.
Jesus is preaching at the self-righteous Pharisees who had been mocking Him. He did this out of genuine love for them that they might repent and be saved. The Lord brings out some powerful truths that will stir your soul and challenge your mind. At the end of the lesson we will begin looking at the account of Lazarus and the rich man, their death and judgment.
In this lesson we will examine the confrontation Jesus had with some Pharisees. The context of this dispute is in relation to the Pharisees’ legalistic ideas about the Sabbath. Jesus makes some remarkable claims that must have shaken those religious leaders. This is an interesting and thought provoking study.
