Discussion Questions: Luke 9:18-22

  1. What does the word “Christ” mean? What is the Hebrew equivalent of the Greek word, Christ?
  2. The word Christ (or Messiah)  is a loaded term. What concepts are encapsulated in this term? In other words, what were the people of God looking for in Christ (or Messiah)?
  3.  Why is it difficult for people (even Jesus’ disciples at first) to accept a suffering Messiah? 
  4. Is a suffering Messiah revealed in the Old Testament? (Hint: see Isaiah 53)
  5. If Christ suffered, his disciples should be prepared to suffer too. See Luke 9:23-27. Discuss.
