Study Reminder – Week 7

Who doesn’t like a good story?  Even better, who doesn’t LOVE a story that touches our hearts, one that speaks to us?  This is why I am drawn to the parables given by Jesus.  I think we all can find something in them that resonates.

Parables are a great way to teach.  For instance, they provide guidance, wisdom, and warning in a format that makes the messages much easier to remember.  Furthermore, the messages are timeless.  No matter how people change over time, they will be able to read the parables and still receive Jesus’ messages.

This week, please read Matthew 13:1-14:36.

Questions:

  • What verse(s) stood out to you and why?
  • What would you write if you were to write a parable using imagery relevant to today?
  • Which, if any, of the parables in this week’s readings speak to you?  Why?
  • What traits should a king have?  Compare Herod Antipas to Jesus.  (Matthew 14:1-21)
  • Has your faith ever faltered doing something God wanted you to do? (Matthew 14:30-31)
  • Additional Questions found in your study guide or in the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible – The Gospel of Matthew

Please provide your thoughts regarding these questions or this week’s readings on the LGB Week 7 page or on the LGB Facebook Page.  Thank you!
