December 11, 2016

Opening Hymn: LSB 345 “Hark! A Thrilling Voice Is Sounding” 

Psalm 85 

Creed (Back Cover) 

Lord’s Prayer (Back Cover) 


1) Authority Denied 

a) What is the fig tree a picture of? 

i) Who does this point to specifically? 

(1) How do they address Jesus? 

(2) And how does He respond? 

ii) Why do they deny Jesus’ authority? 

(1) Do we ever do the same? 

(2) How? 

b) Describe the difference between the two sons 

i) How does this translate to those who hear the word of God 

ii) Which, then is worse? 

iii) Why? 

c) Do the Chief Priests and Elders understand the point of the parable? 

i) Do they know that it’s about them right away? 

(1) Why not? 

(2) What turns them? 

ii) What do they resolve to do?
