Discussion Questions: Luke 3:23-38

Questions For Discussion At Home Or In Gospel Community Groups

  • Why did Luke position the genealogy of Jesus after the story of his baptism and before the account of his temptation in the wilderness by Satan? What effect does this have on the narrative of the Gospel of Luke?
  • Why did Luke order his genealogy so that it concludes with mention of “Adam, the Son of God”?
  • How might we explain the differences between Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus and Luke’s, especially in the section from King David to Jesus? How can we explain the apparent discrepancies, and why do Matthew and Luke take these different approaches?
  • Why does Luke take us all the way back to Adam (instead of to Abraham, as in Matthew’s gospel)?
  • Why should Luke’s genealogy encourage you? How should it help you to better understand who Jesus is and what he came to accomplish?
