Discussion Questions: Luke 7:36-50

  • The sinful woman of Luke 7:37 shows up out of the blue. What do you think prompted her to find Jesus and to fall before his feet in this way?
  • How do we know what the Pharisee was thinking? (vs. 39) 
  • What would the Pharisee have to believe about God, man, sin, and salvation to think the way that he did about the woman?
  • Discuss the parable of Luke 7:41-42. What is the meaning of each detail of that parable? Why did Jesus tell this parable to the Pharisee? 
  • What is the meaning of the saying, “he who forgives little, loves little” (vs. 47)
  • Why were those at the table astonished that Jesus would claim to have the ability to forgive sins? Were they right to be startled by this? Why should they have believed that he had this power to forgive sins?
  • How does this text apply to you?
