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)
