Matthew 21:23–27 – “His Authority Challenged” – Kerry Kaino

Discussion Questions:

1. Why do people ask questions? Why do you think the religious leaders in these verses asked questions?

2. Why do you think Jesus asked questions in these verses? When He addressed other people at different times? Us?

3. In answering the religious leaders’ questions with His own questions, do you think Jesus was more avoiding their questions or actually leading them toward the right answer without having to say it directly?

4. The religious leaders tried to play it safe with their answer to Jesus. In what ways do we play it safe with our answers to Jesus? What does that say about us?
