Luke 19:45-48

There is no small amount of energy spent in our world on gaining access.  Perhaps you've seen someone with an 'All Access Pass' at a concert you've gone to?  Maybe you've felt the bitter exclusion (or delicious inclusion) to some secret inner circle?  As we read Luke 19:45-48, we see Jesus passionate about access to God.  Who can approach God?  The Israelite scribes and teachers of the law certainly had very concrete ideas on this subject.  What was Jesus' perspective on who had access to God?  What does access to God look like today, in our lives?

Luke 24:50-53

The last thing Luke writes about in his Gospel is what has been called the ascension of Jesus.  How might you have felt if you had witnessed this event?  Why do you think there was so much joy at Jesus' ascension?

Luke 23:32-43

The day Jesus died was filled with drama.  There was conscription, prophecy, sharp words, forgiveness, abuse, promise and even conversion.  What a day!  What was going on?
