Discussion for Luke 22

  • Cecilia
    It teaches us to be calm when reacting to any situation and also to humble ourselves.
  • Teresa
    I think this was to show humbleness.
  • Charles Coleman
    Is foot washing a commandment of Christ as the LOrd's supper seems to be?
  • Tim Dean
    In order to clearly understand the purpose of the sword, we must first rightly divide the meaning and context of "turn the other cheek. God NEVER intended for us to be door mats or yard dogs to be kicked and slapped for someone else's entertainment. Rather, we are taught by God's Word that we are the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ. We are supposed to walk with power and authority.
  • I fully agree with both Mark and Kevin. Else why did Jesus rebuke Peter for his use of the sword? Still, I can also understand why Peter thought it was the right thing to do at the time. Paul helps US when he writes, The weapons of OUR warfare are not carnal...
  • Self Defense obviously?
