In this chapter Jesus teaches the disciples about prayer and defends his ability to cast out demons in the face of skepticism.

For Discussion:

  1. What conclusions about the nature of God and about prayer can we draw from the story of the Persistent Neighbor?
  2. Some of Jesus’ detractors accuse Jesus of using demonic power to cast out demons. Discuss the arguments Jesus uses to expose their faulty assumption.
  3. Who was Jonah? What is the sign of Jonah? How does Jesus fulfill this sign?

I’d love to hear about your conversations with Luke.   – Bob –
