“WHERE ARE THE OTHER NINE?”
Luke 17:11-19 (K. V.: 17:18)
“Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?”
1. Whom did Jesus meet on the border of Samaria (11-12)? What was their plea (13)? What does this tell us about them? How would you describe their faith?
2. What might have been the reason Jesus sent them to the priest rather than give them what they wanted (14)? What does their response tell us about them?
3. What does it mean that they were all cleansed on the way? What did one of the former lepers decide to do (15-16)? In what way was he different than the others? Why does Luke identify him as a Samaritan?
4. What questions did Jesus ask those who followed him (17-18)? What truth did he want to emphasize? What is so important about being thankful? (19; Ro 1:21; 1Th 5:16-18)
