Shock and Awe - The Jesus Experience

Questions to Go Deeper in your Faith

  1. Describe a time when you’ve seen someone act in faith.  What did it look like?

  2. Read Luke 7: 1-10.  A centurion, someone who was a Roman military officer and was not Hebrew. He did not feel like he could ask for something from Jesus because he was an outsider to the faith.  How does Jesus respond to him?

  3. Why is it shocking that Jesus says “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.”? (Luke 7:9)  What does this tell us about the nature of faith?

  4. Read Luke 7:36-50.  Why do you think this sinful woman would have shown up at this Pharisees house where Jesus was eating?

  5. Compare the responses of Jesus and Simon the Pharisee, as they encounter this sinful woman who comes into their presence.  How does Jesus view the situation differently? What does this tell us about the nature of faith and forgiveness?
