Last Lessons of Jesus – April 2

Last Lessons – Week 5 – April 2, 2023
1. How has God spoken to you, used you or what did he share with you during
the message today?
2. Does it surprise you that Jesus spends his last public Sermon clearly laying
out the Hypocrisy of the Religious Leaders of his day? What does this make
you ponder, what are the take aways for you from this?
3. Jesus says Do what the Pharisees tell you; but do not do what they do?
What does he mean? How would one follow this direction?
4. How would you define Hypocrite? Where do we most struggle with it
5. Read Matthew 23: 13 and 15:
13  “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the
door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter,
nor will you let those enter who are trying to. 
15  “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over
land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make
them twice as much a child of hell as you are.
What are the practical implications of these verses for us? What things
might we want to avoid when sharing the Kingdom Life with another?
6. How can we make sure as a “church” that we stay focused on the “inside of
the dish and not just cleaning up the outside?”
7. How can we be praying for you this week.
