Discussion Questions: Luke 6:37-45

  1. When Jesus forbids judging, does he mean that his disciples are never to judge? How would you argue for your view?
  2. What kind of judgment does Jesus have in view? How would you argue for this from the context?
  3. Five words starting with the letter “P” we given to clarify Jesus’ teaching about judgement: Pharisee, position or place, proportionate, pleasing, and perception. Can you recall the clarifying points that were made using each of these words?
  4. What does Jesus have to say in verses 39-42 about perception? Why is it important for us to have a clear view of sin if we hope to judge justly? Why must start by seeing our own sin? How will this help us to judge mercifully?
  5. What is the meaning of the passage about trees and their fruit? What does this teaching have to do with the theme of judging?
