Religious Hypocrisy vs. True Compassion

Text: Luke 13:10-17
Speaker: Jason Ching
[Listen or Watch]

Jesus rebukes a hypocritical religious figure and shows compassion for a faithful woman.

  1. What was the criticism of the synagogue ruler? What was wrong with that criticism? 
  2. How are we tempted to use God’s standards to undermine God’s standards? 
  3. What kinds of physical and spiritual difficulties would have accompanied this woman’s disability? 
  4. How can this woman’s experience of suffering and compassion help people in their own trials?
