A  look at the Bible

Read Luke 5:17-26

Who had come to listen to Jesus?(v 17)

How is the meeting disturbed? (v18-19)

What is Jesus’ response?  Why is this surprising? (v20)

How does his audience react? (v21)What is Jesus’ response? (v23-25).

To think about

What do you think of Jesus’ claim to be able to forgive sin?

What is he saying about himself?

What do you make of the Bible’s assessment that we have all sinned?  Is that a label that you are happy to have applied to yourself?
