Discussion Questions: Luke 8:4-15

  1. What is surprising about the behavior of the sower in this parable? What was the meaning of this for the Apostles of Jesus and the church today? 
  2. Why does the seed of God’s word have the power to save and change lives? 
  3. Will God’s word always have a powerful effect on the hearer? What must be done for the word to have a powerful effect?
  4. How is it that any receive the word in a good and honest heart as described in verses 8 and 15?   
  5. What is the doctrine of election and effectual calling? (see our confession of faith, chapters 3 and 10)
  6. How do the doctrines of election (or predestination) and effectual calling stand behind the words of Jesus in this passage, especially verses 8 and 10)?
