Jesus Looks For Faith


  • Compare the centurion's faith with that of the Jewish elders. In what ways are they similar and in what ways are they the same?

  • Who would the original hearers of the story have expected to have greater faith?

  • Why do you think Luke, a gentile, included this story? What points was he trying to make?

  • Consider that faith means to be persuaded of something. Why do you think it's a passive word?

  • In what ways can God convince us that He is real, and that He is powerful? How has he done this in your life?

  • What activities can we take part in to allow God to persuade us?
