In this week’s edition of Conversations on the Gospel of Luke we learn how Jesus overruled the scribes objections to his understanding of Sabbath laws and how he upended a few social and theological assumptions.

For Discussion:

  1. Is the Sabbath controversy familiar to you? Why is it important today?
  2. Jesus says that the Kingdom of God starts out small and perhaps insignificant like a seed or like leaven. Knowing this, how can you recognize when God is present and active in the world?
  3. Why is humility such an important characteristic of a person’s spiritual life?
