Title: Tuesday of the Passion Week: Questions, Parables and Warning

Tuesday of the Passion WeekQuestions, Parables
and Warning
  • Viewing Luke Chapter 20
  • Prepared by Soon Siak. August 2009

Who u tink u r?
  • Thirsty, you sneaked out to the canteen during
    lessons time. As you gulped the can of quenching
    icy soda, the Pengetua appeared from nowhere.
    Who gives you permission to come here?
  • You have to think fast. Answer and see if the
    rest of class agree that it will get you off the
  • Jesus was also faced with even a tougher
    question from the religious authorities...

  • Facing opposition.

The Question of Jesus Authority (1-8)
  • SPM 1994
  • Jesus answered them, Now let me ask you a
    question. Tell me, did Johns right to baptise
    come from God or from man? (Luke 203-4)
  • Who had asked Jesus a question?
  • What was their question?
  • Why did they find it difficult to answer the
    question Jesus asked them?
  • Students to answer.

The Question of Jesus Authority (1-8)
  • The Sanhedrin
  • Supreme council/court of the Jews. 70
    members from three classes of Jewish society, the
    chief priests, the elders and the teachers of the
  • Handles many of their own religious and
    domestic matters, especially regarding Jewish
    law. Can pass but not execute a sentence of
    death. (pxii-d) spm1992
  • The religious authorities hope to trap Him
    in the statement of blasphemy. Countering with
    His own question, Jesus impales His opponents
    upon the horns of a dilemma. (also see p88c)

The Parable of the Wicked Tenants (v9-19)
  • The leaders simply refuses to accept His
    authority. Thus, the parable.
  • Representations
  • Vineyard owner - God
  • Son-Jesus
  • the vineyard - Israel (refer OT)
  • the tenants - the religious leaders
  • the slaves - the prophets (p88e)

Whose face and name are these on it?
The Question about Paying Taxes (v20-26)
  • SPM 1999
  • They asked him, Teacher, we know that you teach
    and speak rightly, and show no partiality, but
    truly teach the way of God. Is it lawful for us
    to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
  • (Luke 2021-22 RSV)
  • Who asked this question?
  • How did Jesus react to it?
  • What was their response?
  • Students to answer.

The Question about Paying Taxes (v20-26)
  • Because of Jesus popularity, the religious
    authorities must first entrap and discredit Him
    among the people in order to justify His death. A
    trick question to get Him into trouble with
    either the Romans or the Jews. (p90o/p)
  • An earthly state provides for the welfare
    of its citizens, thus obligated to support the
    government. But citizens of Gods kingdom also
    owe allegiance to Him. Should there be a
    conflict, allegiance to God takes precedence.

The Question about the Resurrected Life (27-40)
  • The Sadducees accepted only the first five
    books of the OT as Scripture, and rejected a
    resurrection because their Scriptures never
    support the doctrine.
  • Jesus pointed that when God spoke the words
    of Exodus 36, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob had been
    physically dead for many years. So evidently
    there is life after death. (v37.38)

The Question of the Messiahs Authority (v41-44)
  • Jesus seized the offensive with a countering
    question concerning the Person of Christ. The
    favourite messianic title among the Jews was Son
    of David, which they interpreted in highly
    nationalistic and revolutionary terms. Jesus
    quotes Ps 1101 recognised by all Jews as one of
    the greatest messianic psalms, to assert not only
    His humanity but His deity. His scriptural logic
    completely confounded His enemies.

Jesus and the Scribes
Jesus Warns against the Teacher of the Law (v
  • Jesus warns against a prideful seeking of
    public praise, exemplified by the desire for
    places of prominence and titles signifying
    superiority. The titles themselves may be used as
    terms of respect or to indicate certain duties
    and places of responsibility. It is the attitude
    behind the seeking of such recognition that Jesus
    condemns. As believers, we are equal and owe our
    reverence to Christ alone.
