Whether you are NEW online or visiting one of our campuses, we would love to get a chance to know you.
Conversation Starters help us dig deeper, connecting Sunday’s sermons with our Monday lives. These prompts have been designed to help Community Groups grow in their relationship with God, with one another, and with their neighbors. Please know that these questions are meant to be a resource to you. You do not have to follow them verbatim or get through them all. We trust you to know your group and to ask the questions based on your group needs.

1. What did you love about your practice of this week?

2. How do you think people tend to view authority figures in our culture? What about you personally?

3. Over what or whom does Luke 20 claim Jesus has power? Why does this make the scribes and Pharisees so angry? Hint: What do verses 41-44 say about Jesus' power and station?

4. Luke 20 is filled with different arguments that the religious establishment of his day tried to use to escape Jesus’ authority. What are some of the ways people seek to escape Jesus’ authority over their lives today?

5. If the Pharisees were here today, what questions would they ask to try to trap Jesus?
Title: Brilliant King Jesus
Scripture: Luke 20:1-8
Speaker: Reid Kapple,
>> A king has authority, not just influence
>> Our authority is finite, Jesus’ authority is final:
- How are we an authority unto ourselves?

“Once the basis for discussions lacks any agreed-on metaphysical or metanarratival framework, it is doomed to degenerate into nothing more than the assertion of incommensurable opinions and preferences.” - Carl Trueman
>> Our authority is conditional, Jesus’ authority is comprehensive:
- Where does Jesus not have authority?
>> Our authority is derivative, Jesus’ authority is divine:
- Does Jesus have authority or influence?
