Knowing Christ Through Knowing His Forgiveness
Text: Luke 23:32-43
Listen to Sermon
- There were four groups of people who surrounded Christ’s cross. Who were they and why do you think the Lord led Luke to mention them explicitly?
- How did each group respond to Christ on the cross? How does their response take shape today? (including the repentant criminal’s response)
- What is meant by the infinitely large debt the first servant owes the master in comparison with the small debt the other servant owes the first?
- How does the master casting the unforgiving servant to the torturers (hell) align with salvation being by grace through faith in Christ alone? Is this parable implying that forgiving others is a necessary work to earn salvation?
