Text: Matthew 21:28-32

Title: “The Good Son”

  1. Study the context of Isaiah 56:7-8 and Jeremiah 7:9-11. Why are these quotes so appropriate in the story of the cleansing of the temple in Matthew 21:12-13.
  2. Why is it significant that Jesus’ authority is questioned in Matthew 21:23-27? How does Jesus answer?  Why does he include the ministry of John in his response?
  3. What is the main point of the parable of the sons in Matthew 21:28-32? Study the repentance illustrated in Luke 15:7,10 and 17.  Why is repentance so necessary?  How does John’s baptism illustrate our need for repentance?
  4. How does this message offend the leaders? The truth is expanded by Jesus in the parable in Matthew 21:33-43.  Why is this second parable so offensive?
