“YOUNG MAN, I SAY TO YOU, ‘GET UP!’”
Luke 7:11-17, Key Verse: 7:14
“Then he went up and touched the bier they were carrying him on, and the bearers stood still. He said, ‘Young man, I say to you, get up!’”
Where was Jesus and his company going (11)? As he approached the town gate, who did he meet (12)? How might the death of her only son have affected this widow and the people of her town?
When Jesus saw the widow, what was his immediate response (13)? What do the words “Don’t cry” imply? Where does real comfort come from (2Cor 1:3-4)?
Read verses 14-15. When Jesus touched the bier what happened? What did Jesus’ words “Young man…get up!” mean to him? How do Jesus’ words apply to young people today? What does this reveal about Jesus (Jn 5:25)?
How did the crowd of people react to this event (16)? How did this event affect the surrounding country (17)?
