EXTRAVAGANT Part 4: Extravagant Worship
Main Text: Luke 7:36-50
Discussion Questions :
(Please feel free to modify questions to accommodate your specific group!)
Recap the story: What did this woman do that was an act of humility, and costly? Why was it scandalous?
What drove this woman to her act of humility? What has she dared to do? ( LEADER:Publically, unashamedly display GREAT faith).
This lost, broken prostitute realized something about Jesus. What does she believe about Jesus? Who He is ... what He can do??
What is the point of Jesus' comparison between the woman and the Pharisee? Discuss.
As you reflect on this passage: How does this display a heart of worship? (LEADER: Public honor of Jesus / Recognizing Jesus as worthy ...)
Your Life: In our own brokenness, discouragement, challenges, how do we see Jesus? Do those things lead us/ prompt us to worship like the woman, or do they lead us to doubt like the Pharisee?
Jesus has preserved this moment in history to teach us something about faith. What is it? (Rom. 2: 8-9 , Heb. 11:1)
Why is this so shocking? What does Jesus' words to this woman (Vs. 48 , 50) say about His authority? What is He claiming? (LEADER: A claim to His divinity .... Only GOD can forgive sins)
