Discussion Questions: Luke 2:22-40

Questions For Discussion At Home Or In Gospel Community Groups

  • If you were to compare Luke 1-2 with 1 Samuel 1-2 you would find that they are very similar. What is the meaning of this?
  • Luke was obviously concerned to communicate to us that Joseph and Mary obeyed the Law of Moses when they went up to the temple to present Jesus there. Why does this matter?
  • How does the recognition of Jesus by Simeon and Anna help to strengthen your certainty that he is the Messiah? 
  • Consider the words of Simeon in Luke 2:29-32. What Old Testament passages and themes does he point to?
  • What does it mean that Jesus grew in wisdom and stature? What does this reveal to us concerning his nature?
  • Why is it not enough to be convinced in the mind that Jesus is the Messiah? Why must we also believe in him in the heart and confess him as Lord?
