Episode Notes:

Introduction:

  1. Jesus invested His time on earth in people. In so doing, He was obeying His Father.
  2. Today, we turn to a tender scene for us, His disciples, to notice that Jesus was about US (Luke 17:1-4).

Observations from Luke 17:1-2:

The disciples would sometimes stumble into sin (Luke 17:1a).

  1. “Offenses” [lit., a trap-stick] were going to come (cf. Mat. 18:7; 1 Cor. 11:19).
  2. Jesus is not minimizing the consequence of sin by saying this (cf. 1 Jn. 1:8; 2 Pe. 2:20).

Those who caused the disciples to stumble were in serious trouble (17:1b-2).

  1. Some were unbelievers, pagans, false teachers. Others were Pharisees and the religious “elite.”
  2. A millstone was used to grind grain to flour. The stones were common family items and very heavy.
